This is in response to Vogue’s recent publication whose writer and editors called Bloggers very demeaning terms.  You can read that article at: <<<CLICK HERE>>>

I was interviewed for “La Voz Hispana N.Y.” by Marta Rivera Article: “Las Blogueras Curvy Estan De Moda<<<CLICK HERE>>>.  The following is my full response (En Español Lo Encuentran Abajo) :

I wholeheartedly disagree with the poor view and choice of words made by “Vougue” and its writers. Fashion bloggers were born in to this industry to answer the call for diversity and style that is rarely seen on the runway and pertaining media. Blogs stem from meeting a need not provided by the industry and most especially in fashion, as non-runway life has taken precedence with consumers.
As our budgets are wide and vast the consumer’s creativity goes in to play. With the Bloggers reviews and inspiration the fashion sense becomes ever more unique and more so as expression of individuality and the movement to encompass acceptance.
As bloggers we provide an integral service to the fashion community – Designers, Manufacturers, Distributors and Consumers alike. We widen the spectrum of the buyers that have a connection with someone they know through social media and/or identify with the style and body size/measurements. This is most common for Petite-Plus, Plus Size and curvy fashionistas.
I personally was deemed a blogger and didn’t set out to be one, when the response from my friends and social media followers asked for full reviews and recommendations of the clothes I wore in my pictures. Most especially as a 5’0 Latina Petite-Plus woman over 40, as we don’t generally see a targeted marketing for us, and much less see runways featuring designs that we can feel confident to purchase.
One of my core purposes for blogging is to inspire and empower others to express themselves and to live without fear. Fashion is an avenue that we can do all these things every single day. My own fashion sense is a wide spectrum that will connect with many but not with all as it is a personal opinion and not a rule. In my blog there’s something for just about everyone. Making choices of items I enjoy and love are key regardless of its income potential. My opinion affects others and choose to do so in a positive form first and foremost.

What are your thoughts? Now more than ever I ask you to support your favorite Bloggers by Sharing, Commenting and Liking their work.  These actions are set as proof of my words.

A medida que nuestros presupuestos son mas amplios la creatividad del consumidor crece. Con los Blogueros la crítica e inspiración en el sentido de la moda es cada vez más único y por lo tanto la expresión de la individualidad y el movimiento para abarcar la aceptación.
Como blogueros proporcionamos un servicio integral a la comunidad de la moda – diseñadores, fabricantes, distribuidores y consumidores por igual. Ampliamos el espectro de los compradores que tienen una relación con alguien que conocen a través de los medios sociales y / o se identifican con el estilo y el tamaño corporal / medidas. Esto es más común para estatura baja, talla grande y con curvas.
Yo personalmente no planee ser una bloguera de moda pero mis amigos y seguidores en las redes sociales me pedian mas informacion sobre el vestuario que llevaba en mis imágenes. El impacto ha sido mayor especialmente como mujer Petite-Plus Latina 5’0 mayor de 40, ya que generalmente no vemos un marketing específico para nosotras, y mucho menos vemos que en las pasarelas ofrescan los diseños que podemos tener confianza para comprar.
Uno de los propósitos fundamentales de mis blogs es inspirar y capacitar a otros ha expresarse y vivir sin miedo. La moda es una avenida en la que podemos hacer todas estas cosas todos los días. Mi propio sentido de la moda es un amplio espectro que va a conectar con muchos, pero no con todos, ya que es una opinión personal y no una regla. En mi blog hay algo para casi todo el mundo. La toma de decisiones de los elementos que me gustan y el amor son la clave sin tener en cuenta su potencial de ingresos. Mi opinión afecta a los demás y opto por hacerlo de una forma positiva en primer lugar.

Que les parece? Hora mas que nunca les pido que apollen a sus Blogueras/Blogueros favoritos.  Lo pueden hacer con sus [LIKES], dejando comentarios y compartiendo su trabjo por todas cuentas sociales.  Estas acciones seran prueba de mis palabras.
