It all started as an Instagram profile. I wanted to create an outlet for Fat Girls Traveling. As I blogger, I use hashtags on all of my social platforms to try to get more eyes on my work. This gives me the opportunity to see what other profiles are featuring and covet a spot on more than a few pages ( Ahem, Travel Noire). But I digress. I’ve seen some great female-focused, solo traveling, women of color pages but almost nothing for Fat Girls. So, I created one, Fat Girls Traveling.
It quickly grew from an Instagram profile to a Facebook Group and now it’s one of my passion projects. It’s a safe haven where women can look for inspiration, support and travel tips. I want Fat Girls Traveling to become a movement and slowly but surely, it’s happening!
A few months ago an awesome New Orleans based boutique started following FGT and after I saw all of the fabulous plus size fashions available at Jaci Blue we had to connect! Which brings me to this months GORGOUEUS Giveaway! Jaci Blue just launched their collection of summer tunics and I want you to win one! Read on to see how to win this Embroidered Lace Dress valued at $69.

Why I Love It
Jaci Blue owner turned designer Jaclyn felt the need to create a chic caftan and tunic collection after decades of lackluster options. This fellow Fat Girl Traveling hopped a flight to Bali for inspiration and to collaborate with a manufacturer who understands big, beautiful bodies. The end result, some fashion forward color combinations with a boho vibe. Check out the full collection here.
