Hi! I’m Taylor. I’m a fun-loving extrovert obsessed with all things fashion and beauty.
As a curvy girl, I have always struggled with the lack of representation in the fashion industry. Thankfully, the past few years have seen miles of progress in terms of diversity and inclusion, but we still have a long way to go.
As an avid follower of tons of fashion influencers, I noticed a severe lack of size-inclusive blogs. The few who have established a reputation as size-inclusive have always inspired me because they are a source of such uplifting, positive energy. Their whole purpose is to lift women up and give them a place to be themselves.
There’s just one problem: most of these blogs are either meant for people who are sample-sized or plus-sized, with most influencers leaving out those of us who fall somewhere in between.
So, The Wild was born partially out of frustration with the lack of mid-range blogs, and partially out of the desire to build a community where women of all shapes and sizes can communicate, share, learn, and simply be themselves.
My goal for this blog is to make other women and girls feel confident no matter their size. I want to be able to inspire you and help you feel like your best self, and of course, I hope to get to know you and have lots of fun along the way.
On this blog, you’ll find not only fun outfit ideas and other fashion-related posts, but also some of my favorite things, including DIY projects, bullet journaling, lifestyle tips, and beauty reviews and recommendations. I encourage you to share your thoughts with me and let me know what types of content you’re most interested in! After all, this blog is just as much for you as it is for me.
Now that you know how The Wild came to be, I guess I should tell you a little more about me.
I’m 20 years old and I’m currently studying marketing communication. Next semester, I’ll be jetting off to Italy for a semester abroad, and the following fall I’ll be completing a semester-long internship.
After graduation, I plan to move to New York City and start a career in fashion marketing.
When I was little, I wanted to be a fashion designer. I used to play with my Project Runway light table for hours, sketching little outfits in my drawing pad. I eventually grew out of this desire when I came to terms with the fact that I can’t draw! Even though I don’t see fashion design as my career path, I still like to sketch every now and then.
I LOVE using fashion as a creative outlet, and you can usually catch me shopping at the mall or online. On top of my love for all things clothing, shoes, and accessories, I am also a huge makeup fan. While I certainly wouldn’t call myself a beauty guru, I do have quite a collection of makeup, and I love to switch things up and try out new brands and products.
Even stronger than my passions for beauty and fashion is my love of writing. I’ve written everything from blog posts to press releases to academic research papers, and it honestly never gets old. There’s something so compelling to me about sharing my thoughts with others and making them feel something. That’s another major reason why I started The Wild: to share my thoughts, experience, and advice with all of you.
I’m a total overachiever and obsessive problem-solver, always looking for the best and most efficient way to get things done.
I’m coffee-obsessed, and never met a latte I didn’t like.
I’m also a huge dog lover, to the point where sometimes I feel like I like them more than people.
Fall is my favorite season, and Halloween is my favorite holiday because I get to dress up – and usually I make my own costume.
My favorite movie is The Devil Wears Prada, with Almost Famous coming in as a close second.
Now that you know all about me, why I started The Wild, and my plans for the future, I hope you’ll join me on this journey! I look forward to sharing exciting new experiences with you. Thank you so much for reading and stay tuned for more fun content on the blog.
