Bosslady x Paty
What is a Bosslady exactly? Well according to the urban dictionary, it is “a woman in control, taking charge of her own circumstances in work & life. Someone who knows her worth and won’t accept anything less. She is empowering and inspiring to those around her. She kicks ass!”. I’ll be meeting a different women every month to discuss fashion, self-love and ambitions to show that we can all be a bosslady whatever our appearance or background. It’s about believing in ourselves, and choosing to make our own rules or break some. These woman choose to do so.
This month’s Bosslady is the woman hiding behind the alias @patyliciousdiary on Instagram, miss Paty Brown. Grabbing Paty was not an easy task! Besides being a stylished blogger, she has been a model agent for 4 years, a style consultant, and personal shopper for 2 years and somehow still finds the time to participate in a singing showcase on the weekends. Recently, she took part in the first French plus-size press trip  for the launch of Lalaa Misaki’s partnership with Gemo. She’s a real Bosslady!

  • How would you describe your style?

I am a real chameleon : my style depends on my mood, the weather and the latest trends of course !

There so many women that I see as muses, these are some of my favourites :
* Claire Sulmers because she is a « style digger »
* Sade Akinosho and the way she plays with pattern, fabrics and she rocks every color she wears.
* Ada Oguntodu AKA the vintage queen! She mixes old-school pieces with trendy items and give them a second life.
There are so many others…

  • Tell us your journey of self love?

Well I have always been curvy even when I was a teenager but my body has never been a problem for me. However, like other curvy teeenagers, I was very frustrated because I couldn’t get dressed the way I wanted. It was really difficult to look trendy because there were no « plus size » range for young girls!!! I remember buying T-shirts, sweaters or even trousers in the men’s section because nothing else would fit otherwise. Can you believe that?
Luckily,  my mother used to work as a seamstress so she used to customize everything I bought at the time. But when brands like H&M and Newlook opened in France with plus-size range for young women, it changed everything for me. This is how I became a « fashion addict ».
  • When do you feel the most confident? or What do you do to feel confident?

When I feel down I just remember how strong, intelligent and a good person I am. That helps me face anything.
  • Do you dress to cover any part of your body or to show off parts of your body?

I never try to cover parts of my body when I get dressed. I just want to look pretty, and that’s enough for me !
  • What is the thing you’re tired of people asking you?

You might find this ridiculous but it has to be people asking me on insta « where did you get that from? » because it means that they didn’t take the time to read my captions or check my tags. I always try to give as much details as I can.

  • What does it means to you to be a Bosslady?

For me being a bosslady means being an entrepreneur, making everything you can to achieve your goals.
  • What are you most proud of ?

Being a confident plus-size woman working in the fashion industry where everyone is obsessed with appearances ! I remember when I started working as a model agent, someone asked me how I was able to be good and objective when I am a plus-sized woman. To be honest It makes me laugh, because despite what people may think, agents don’t starve models! We just offer our client a range of models matching their criterias. Believe me, you don’t have to be super skinny to be a model…it’s a Fact !
  • Who are your biggest role models ?

I have been fascinated by Missy Elliott since I was young because she is so strong and beautiful. Then I was really into Queen Latifah because she is so powerful but way more Feminine than Missy.
These ladies made their way into an industry that was over-sexualising women. They didn’t have the typical body shape but they still made it! For me growing up it was all about these bossladies.
  • What are your ambitions for 2018?

I am working on different projects and I would love each of them to be successful ! I hope to be a part this important change for the fashion industry in France.
  • What would you like to ask me ?

Why did you choose to interview me? haha
