Throughout my fashion journey, I have been honored to meet some amazing people. Shakira McKenzie is one of those people.
Shakira is the owner of Style Your Curves Boutique! It is an online women’s clothing boutique that has sizes from small to 6x. And let me tell you first hand her clothes are amazing!!!!

Shakira says she started this business with two things in mind:
1. Wanting something that was her own
2. (Being a Plus Size woman herself) Having affordable clothing that was stylish and fashionable for all sizes.
Being a small business owner can seem daunting at first, but Shakira says, “It has been an rewarding experience. A few tips that I have to make your business successful are:
1. Be dedicated – this is for you! No one is going to work harder for you than you will.
2. Don’t let one failure or mishap define your progress. Success is built on falling and getting back up. Don’t quit!
3. And lastly, find the joy in what you are doing! The more you love it, the more rewarding and successful you’ll become!”
