6We caught up with top plus size blogger Danielle Vanier recently to ask her some quick fire questions and what her favourite piece is from the new AW15 collection. You can view more of her confident, on trend and colourful style at daniellevanier.co.uk
What makes you happy? When a blog reader gets in contact with me and tells me that I have inspired them or helped to change their view of their body or their confidence! It reminds me of why I do what I do!
Who would play you in a film? I think I would want the mega babe, Rebel Wilson to dye her hair brown and play me! I love her sense of humour and quick wit!What qualities do you look for in a person? Empathy, kindness and whether I can trust them or not.
What does fashion mean to you? Fashion means the world to me. It allows me to express my personality without even having to open my mouth! I get so much joy out of researching trends, putting outfits together and sharing my blog pics with the world.
What is the best advice anyone has ever given you? Dress for yourself and no one else.
What do you like best about yourself? I love my lips! I have my mothers mouth and she blessed me with an excellent Cupids Bow.What was your worst subject at school? Maths! I was in the bottom set and just loathed the subject – I am still horrendous at it now!
Who would you most like to be stuck in a lift with? Hmmmm, I’d have to say Idris Elba hahahaha 😉
Tube, walk or drive? Taxi, always a taxi.
Describe your perfect day? I’d have a long lie in, followed by brunch in the sun whilst people watching. I’d have a swim and a massage in the afternoon and get my nails done. In the evening I would get all dressed up and meet my girlfriends for fancy cocktails and a meal followed by more cocktails and dancing!
Who did you have on your bedroom wall as a teenager? Will Smith, East 17 and Michael Owen.What would you tell your 16 year old self? Don’t over pluck your eyebrows!
If you weren’t a blogger, what do you think you’d be doing? I would still be designing textile prints and trying to stay awake in 3 hour long meetings.
If you could live in any other city, what would that be? New York! I love city life so much and I love the similarities between London and NY.What do you expect to be doing in ten years time? I’d love to have my own fashion line, styling women and hopefully i’ll still be blogging.
What is your favourite song? Sabali by Amadou & Mariam
Where are you going on holiday this year? I went to Spain July with a big group of friends for a week of lounging by the pool, eating yummy food and drinking cocktails.
What’s would be your last meal? My last meal would be my Mums Christmas dinner. It is my favourite meal and I look forward to it every year.
Describe three words that your fans would use to describe you. Sassy, confident, honest
