Big Fat Flea Model: Alaura Martucci
How did you hear about the Big Fat Flea?
I heard about the Flea from one of the organizers, Rebecca. We were working together at Babeland at the time.
What does the Big Fat Flea mean to you?
The Big Fat Flea is the one day every year that I get to try on and purchase affordable and stylish plus-size clothing while feeling part of a wonderful sense of community. Any of the negative body stuff that usually accompanies me when I go shopping gets to stay home that day.
Who are your style icons or inspirations?
My style is always evolving, especially as I have begun to give myself permission to wear clothing that makes me happy, and not just what I believe I "should" wear. Lately I am inspired by the Fatshion communities on Tumblr, Instagram and Pinterest.
