FATSHION FEATURE!

Big Fat Flea Model: Pj Hargett

How did you hear about the Big Fat Flea?

I heard about it years ago on facebook, but just kept missing it.  About 2 years ago I made sure to “Save the Date!!!” even if it meant taking my mom with me since it fell on Mother’s Day. The 2nd year I took my best friend and we both volunteered. I wonder who will join us this year…

What does the Big Fat Flea mean to you?

It’s thrift heaven and a plus sized delight. It means being silly and hunting for great finds with other body positive people and making new friends. It means getting a good portion of my clothes shopping done and spending 1/4 of the cost while actually giving something back. 

Who are your style icons or inspirations?

I don’t really have any. I’m not a fashionista, I just wear what I like.

Describe your current favorite outfit & how it makes you feel.

I love to wear brightly patterned skinny jeans and a graphic t for when I want to feel easy, sexy and badass. Or a super sophisticated dress and chunky heels for more dressed up fair.
