"A lot of times, I wear silver jewelry on one hand and the copper and gold on the other. I get a lot of compliments on that."

Job: Photography and public relations at Innovation Public Relations; hosts "BLAKstar" online radio show

Neighborhood: Gahanna

Hometown: Lima

Age: 29

Label your style: "Accessory-heavy and eclectic"

Why does your style work for you?

I'm the person who comes up with a creative way of marketing a product or an event or business, so I shouldn't come in looking like a drone or a robot. I should look like, "She's creative."

I worked in the financial industry for years before, and even in that, I would wear things like these red glasses I love.

What advice do you have for other full-figured women?

Wear clothes that fit. We're scared to wear sleeveless tops and dresses in the summertime, and I used to wear shrugs on top all the time. But it's like, I can see your arms are big through your sweater.

And another thing - if you find something you like, buy it in every color.

Do you have any off-the-beaten-path shopping suggestions?

Bandlu.com is out of Minnesota and has some of the best plus-sized stuff I've seen. I also like missphit.com.

Tell me about your accessories.

A lot of times, I wear silver jewelry on one hand and the copper and gold on the other. I get a lot of compliments on that.

Do you have any favorite products?

Mixed Chicks is the best hair product for curly hair - period. And I don't go anywhere without Blistex Daily Conditioning Treatment and C.O. Bigelow's Mentha Lip Shine.
