Danielle's Closet

So those of you who are die-hard YFF readers will know that in one of my first ever blog posts, I wrote about Stylista, a reality show on the CW in which the contestants were competing to win a job as junior editor at ELLE magazine. One of those contestants happened to be a plus-size girl named Danielle, and I totally loved her. I spotted her recently while shopping at Forever21 and instantly recognized her! Since I've been meaning to start back up with YFF Closets again--the first one had a crazy response--I asked if I could feature her and she said yes!

Since Stylista aired, Danielle hasn't lost her love of fashion; she's worked in retail consistently and is currently a personal shopper for NYC women. With a super cute Brooklyn apartment and a trendy personal style, Danielle's favorite places to shop include Urban Outfitters, H&M, Anthropologie and Forever21. See her fabulous closet and her favorite wardrobe picks in the video below:



I have more fatshionable New Yorkers lined up to feature soon! If you're stylish and want your closet on YFF, email gabi@youngfatandfabulous.com.

  7. "They hurt like a bitch." Hahaha. So true. As cute as they are, shoes from Forever are not the most comfortable choice. Great style Danielle!

  13. It seems like that show was on forever ago, but I really liked it and honestly Danielle is the only person I can remember. I guess when I watched it I could instantly relate to her as being plus size and she's just stuck in my mind.

    By the way, this is certainly my favorite feature you have on here! I love peeking into other peoples closet.. in the least creepiest way possible.

  15. After reading the block of the chick who won, it's probably better Danielle DIDNT win. It sounds like her current profession is 39 time baller as a personal stylist. Thank you for filming her closet!

    Chubby Girls Rock!!!

  19. My bf totally has the boy version of that Ozzy tee. I won't tell him it exists in a girl version, though I have worn his a few times. Also, hurray for someone else who would probably have 70 pairs of sunglasses if they would just stop breaking! I have such a bad habit of just throwing them in my bag when I take them off, I'm down to 8 pairs right now (with 2 more on the way) I don't have a problem...

  20. LOVE her! I watched Stylista and I was rooting for her. I'm glad to see she's still in fashion-- and still looking fabulous and bubbly!

  23. I love her style too, but I'm sad there were so many items from urban outfitters and H&M featured - nothing fits me there! H&M goes up to a 16 here, but it's a pretty small 16. Maybe I'll have to go back and see if I can find anything there! I'll just look for the stretchy stuff, I guess. I do love the closet features, but I would love for you to bring back the posts where you feature like 6 outfits of another fatshionista. Mainly because I want to be that fatshionista, lol! www.curvycanadian.blogspot.com

  42. I love the confidence of these young ladies. It's big middle finger to the style industry that says, "Yes, I'm FAT, but dammit I look amazing.". I firmly believe this is a much more positive message than the host of "anti-obesity" campaigns out there. Not promoting fatness per se (I, too, am a fat girl), but promoting a healthy body image and teaching young girls to be their best, regardless of size. The fat-hatred that is taking over our society needs to be fought and bloggers like you, me, and the plethora of others out there are doing just that. Thanks for you input and contribution to making the world a bit more tolerant of fatness. Love it!

  51. Jordan lorsque michael jordan intégra le monde de la nba en 1984, ce ne fut pas seulement le début d'une carrière sans égal, mais aussi

    le début de la série célèbre "Air Jordan" de nike. le fabricant d'articles de sport accorda toute

    une série de chaussures et d'habits au basketteur doté apparemment de talents surhumain. cette série fit tout de suite sensation : l' Air Jordan 1 fut interdite par la nba puisque la combinaison des coloris noir/rouge ne

    correspondit pas au "code vestimentaire" de la nba à l'époque. pourtant, cela ne put empêcher le succès mondial de cette sneaker unique.

    au contraire : la chaussure de basket déclencha une véritable hystérie et est, dès lors, lancée dans une nouvelle édition chaque

    année.jordan - plus qu'une simple chaussure de basket les spots publicitaires de jordan sont aussi innovateurs que les produits eux-

    mêmes. au cours des années 80, avec spike lee alias mars blackmon, ils conquirent les écrans de la télé. aujourd'hui, les spots pour les

    différents modèles d'air jordan sont toujours de vrais classiques sur youtube. de nos jurs, le jumpman ne se porte pas seulement sur les

    chaussures : Air Jordan 3, Air Jordan

    4
    , Air Jordan 5, Air Jordan 6,

    Air Jordan 7, Air Jordan Spizike.

    ils se distinguent par le design typique de la marque et convainquent par une excellente qualité et des matières hut de gamme. en 1997,

    nike externalisa même la série de jordan : aujourd'hui, la marque de jordan développe ses propres produits, mais coopère néanmoins

    étroitement avec nike. des joueurs comme carmelo anthony ou dwyane wade portent le jumpman dans la nba. ainsi, michael jordan reste

    présent dans la meilleure ligue de basket-ball du monde. Obtenez les dernières Air
