Swaggerette To Know: @KarenBritChick

I’m kicking off my series of badass female profiles “Swaggerette To Know”, inspiring women by seeing themselves contributing to the world in a wide-range of occupations and creativity.

Screen Shot 2020-07-07 at 2.54.56 PMI am a huge fan of this beautiful and funny lover of fashion by the social media handle KarenBritChick. She’s an Influencer, Model, Writer and Fashion expert  and as her name implies, she’s a brit and she’s living in one of the most eclectic and stylish cities in the world, New York City. If you haven’t seen her IG or watched her YouTube channel I am thrilled to turn you onto her.

The late great fashion photo journalist Bill Cunningham was famous for his photographs of celebrities (especially chronicling the style of the late first lady Jackie O) and everyday people with style on the streets of NYC. Karen is continuing the tradition, interviewing an inclusive array of stylish New Yorkers of every shape, age and ethnicity both male and female in a series called “What Everyone Is Wearing In NY”.

I grew up in NY and have been living in LA for a very long time. I love, love both coasts but I’ve been homesick for the stylish crowded streets and the energy of my hometown. This series gives me the chance to get my slice of the apple and indulge my love of fashion.

Take a look at her latest YT episode back on the streets as NY emerges from their lockdown. Karen’s channel takes us shopping for vintage finds, designer pieces and the best of each season’s new pieces. Enjoy!

You can find Karen on IG @karenbritchick

Curvy Swaggerette – Gabrielle Fequiere – TJ Maxx Commercial

Meet Gabrielle Fequiere aka youtube fashionista “Gabrielle The Guru”. She’s a beautiful and confident Diva featured in the latest national commercial for TJ Maxx. The singer/songwriter can add actress/model to her list of accomplishments.

Her bright smile and confident personality is one of the many reasons I like the TJ Maxx campaign so much.

CurvyWellness: Good News, Bad News – Ashley Graham’s Sports Illustrated cover

Here’s the good news…for the first time ever Sports Illustrated has a gorgeous Curvy model (Ashley Graham) on its cover with curvy athlete Ronda Rousey inside! The bad news is a former SI covergirl (Cheryl Tiegs) feels the need to complain about it. #whenwillwomenstophatingoneachother. Whenever the status quo gets a smack down, it’s won’t go quietly. Work those unapologetic curves Ashley!

This is horrible! The ‘world’s first supermodel’ Cheryl Tiegs has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated several times, but she’s got no love for one of this year’s covergirls, Ashley Graham. As a matter of fact, she’s calling the plus-sized beauty ‘unhealthy!’ Here’s the scoop.
