Happy Hump Day! It’s freezing over here in Boston and it doesn’t help that I am buried in over 80 inches of snow, but don’t worry y’all, I will be back will a lot of outfit updates and maybe even a give a way or two!! You know I love to share! Speaking of sharing, I wanted to introduce to a new line that recently came out. It’s called Kay Dupree!
Although it’s in its infancy, I couldn’t help but highlight this line because the Kay uses a model that I can relate to! Kay uses Vanessa Mays-Hinds of Bicoastal Models as the model to début her collection! As Vanessa likes to say, she is one of the “Fuller Models” …and I like to think of myself as a fuller women as well ha!
Here’s a little background about Kay Dupree new line:
Kay Dupree is an American clothing designer.A New York City native, Kay attended the Art Institute of New York City graduating with a degree in Fashion Design. While pursuing her degree, she realized that plus size women were not getting the love they deserved in the fashion industry and decided to make it her goal to change the views of plus size industry.
In 2007, she began styling and writing for online publications lending her voice to empower and educate plus size consumers.
In 2011, Kay created HeartSoulandCurves.com, which quickly became a leading fashion website pairing her audience with her brand’s view – to dress women in pieces that add chicness, sexiness and fun to their wardrobe.
Acknowledging that dressing women in beautiful clothes is only half her mission, Kay took on a new challenge, in 2012 she published “10 Simple Rules to Being Stylish,” a personal pocket guide on the road to turning consumers into educated shoppers all while curating their personal style.
Kay Dupree is currently finishing her first collection due out this winter.
Kay’s philosophy is simple, “In the fashion world we are normally rejected, pushed to the back and last to be noticed. We are beautiful and deserve to be dressed as such.”Contact: [email protected]
