A Brief Blog Profile: Curves and Chaos
by Thomas Hynes
Curves and Chaos was started in 2010 by Monique Frausto.The blog was meant to be a site dedicated to fashion, beauty, travel and life. The blog was also meant to be a place where she could "share where plus size girls could find the latest fashions and news." But, regardless of dress size (or body type for that matter), pretty much everyone's life is made up of at least some chaos. And everyone's life, even those of the very skinny, has some curves to it.
On the blog, you can read about how Liz Claiborne helps Monique dress to impress. Or you can read up on the new trend of black lace dresses. There's even a post on what to pack when traveling to different cities. On this post, she outlines her New York City essentials, and here she does the same for San Antonio. And just to prove that it's more than travel and fashion, here she has a post dedicated to Men We Love. This post's featured man is Chuey Martinez.
Curves and Chaos is a great blog for a lot of reasons. But, one of my favorite parts of the site is the way in which Monique embraces who she is. It's not a shock to say we live in a skinny-obsessed society. Just open a magazine or watch a beer commercial for proof of this. This blog reminds me that size and shape don't actually matter. But being ok with who you are does.
