What they say about me:
Named one of the “Top 10 New York Fashion Bloggers” by WhoWhatWear and a “person who proves you can be fit at any size” by MTV.com, CeCe Olisa is co-Founder of theCURVYcon, a convention celebrating body positivity and plus size fashion during New York Fashion Week. She currently lives in New York City.
What I say about myself
When I moved to New York City, I quickly realized that a girl like me had to work a little harder and be a little smarter in order to reach my goals. I had unique challenges as a plus size girl. From dating, to job hunting to finding wide calf boots, things were different for me. I needed a place to sort through my own feelings of insecurity. So, in 2008 I started a blog as a hobby. I created a blog about fashion, fitness, dating and living in New York City from a curvy girl’s perspective. From the beginning, I’ve had a community of passionate and insightful women who have come along with me on my journey (if you’ve been with me from the beginning, thank you!). As my work made an impact in the world, I’ve been super humbled to model and work with brand partners including: NIKE, LOFT, Bloomingdales, Olay, Secret Deodorant, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Amazon, and so many more.
I’ve also been able to create brands of my own. In 2015 I quit my corporate 9-5 job and co-founded theCURVYcon. Our continually sold-out convention is sponsored by brands like NIKE, LOFT, Dia&Co, Target and Sephora. I love telling stories through photos, videos and writing. I can’t wait to continue sharing my personal and professional evolution with you here. Please shoot me a DM with advice questions, comments, or just a simple hello!
What do YOU want?
What YOU want is the best “north star” you can give yourself and the more specific you can be, the better.
It’s important to know the difference between what’s personal and what’s private.
I always have Prosecco chilled in my fridge – this way I’m always prepared to celebrate!
