Introducing Tavia of Nine To Fly

Tavia is another fabulous mom and wife with an awesome blog. A visit to her blog, will introduce you to  a woman with style who enjoys and have fun with fashion. She also have a great eye for vintage, a woman after my own heart. It's my pleasure to introduce you to  Tavia and her fab blog Nine To Fly

So tell us more about yourself, who is Tavia? 

I a lover of God first and foremost.  I am a simple person, a mother of 2 talented boys, ages 13 and 10, and a wife a caring and good man.  I am a  good friend to those who I am honored to call friend. I am really a private person by nature but this blog thing has me stepping out of that comfort zone…baby steps though.  As far as fashion, I am like the next fashionista, I truly enjoy a good pump or wedge and a well fitting pair of jeans.   Where I differ from most fashion lovers is I don’t  eat, sleep and breathe fashion.  I'm not saying that is a bad just isn't me.  All in all, I love to look nice and present myself well.  

How did you get your start in blogging, tell us a little bit about your blog.    

I got my start when I did a search last year on plus size fashion after feeling like I needed a boost in my wardrobe.  My search came up with plenty of personal style fashion bloggers of whom I stalked for several months.  Then one day the blogging bug bite me. I reached out to the fabulous Full-Figured Diva, Myeshia for some pointers and advice.  She is a sweetie and was very encouraging.  The next week or two at the end of October, Nine to Fly was born.  My blog is all about what I wear to the office, church, or on a night out on the town.  Being a frugal and curvy woman, my goal is to fashionably inspire others like myself while infusing my everyday shenanigans of being a wife, a mother and just a pure goofball. 

How would you describe your style? 

I would say that my style is classic chic.  Every now and then I may wear something a little edgier or trendier but for the most part I love the classic look with timeless pieces.  Although, I love a good trend such as my favorite animal prints, I try not to be too literal with it.

Where do you get your style inspirations?

My style inspiration comes from anywhere from the Celeb world, my fellow fashion bloggers, even down to folks around me with my mom being the biggest one. My mom, who was a single parent taught me early in life that although we didn’t have much money we didn't have to look like it.  She introduced the thrift store to me when I was high school.  Of course at that time, I didn’t appreciate it then like I do now.  My family and I now do OK for ourselves  but thrifting is still something I LOVE to do. I get inspired by going up and down the aisles of the Value Village or Salvation Army.  You can find the most unique pieces when you have a rendezvous at the thrift store.

What are three of your favorite items in your closet?

Wow this is a hard question to answer because this changes frequently.  As of now, I would say my houndstooth jacket, my orange blazer (I have been killin’ that thing this season) and my $5 genuine leather pants that I scored thrifting a few months ago.

Anything else?
