The first time I saw her was at the One Stop Plus fashion show at the Lincoln Center in NYC , Fall 2010. The next time I saw her was at the Black Style Bloggers First Event in the LES In NYC. She was a doll, sweet, personable and but of course fashionable. Since our meeting she has been very supportive of Skinny Minority and we have been supportive of her and her Stylish Curves.

I love Alissa’s style she is definitely one of the best Style Bloggers around. However, blogging (Stylish Curves Is Her Blog) is far the bucks end with this gal. Alissa also freelances with the Budget Fashionista and guest blogs for The Fashion Bomb and Looking Fly On a Dime. She sense of style has be featured everywhere from Essence.com to Marie Claire. Not to mention she also has major relationships with brands like Lane Bryant and Playtex, which she was recently a brand ambassador.
Miss Alissa’s mission is very similar to ours here on SMB to bridge the cap between straight and plus size fashion. Judging from her creditability, continuos presence at New York Fashion Week, and increasingly growing readership, I say mission accomplished. She proves there’s a style inside of all of us, this month we are saluting her because she is a proven STYLE HERO!
