An Interview with Danah & Stacy of The Plump Pinay
We're twin sisters Stacy and Danah Gutierrez from the Phillipines. We started the blog www.theplumpinay.com a little more than a year ago to empower women, specially Filipinas, to start loving and appreciating their bodies because every body is unique, and diversity is beautiful. :)
What do you do when you're not blogging? What is your job?
Danah & Stacy: We're both working for Yahoo! Philippines. Danah is in the marketing department while I work with the sales team. --Stacy
Who or what has been your greatest fashion influence?
Danah & Stacy: Danah: The '60s and '70s era. Stacy: Fatshion bloggers from all over the globe! :)
Three things in your closet you cannot live without:
Danah & Stacy: Stacy: Denim jacket, maxi skirt, lace up boots Danah: earrings, Charriol ring, nice skirts
What is the worst job you've ever had?
Danah & Stacy: Nothing so far! Haha! :)
How are you able to stay fashionable without spending a lot of $$? What are your tips and where do you shop?
Danah & Stacy: We get creative in reinventing our clothes and we've learned how to mix and match. We shop everywhere and anywhere--from online shops to department stores to thrift stores to branded shops. As long as it's worth the price and can be mixed with what we already own, it's considered a good buy.
What do you think is the hardest part about blogging?
Danah & Stacy: The hardest part about blogging is that you put yourself out there for everyone to see, making yourself exposed to other people's opinions, specially negative ones. It's hard also when we encounter comments from people who misinterpret out advocacy and turn it into something else.
What is the most rewarding part?
Danah & Stacy: It's being able to influence women into feeling good about themselves and making them realize their own beauty. Receiving emails and letters from our readers who appreciate what we do also fuels us to keep on doing what we've started.
In your opinion, every woman should own:
Danah & Stacy: THEIR BODIES.
A woman's most beautiful feature is her:
Danah & Stacy: Confidence.
One trend you would like to never see again is:
Danah & Stacy: Danah: Baggy pants worn really low with boxers. Stacy: Neckties worn with shirts.
What are key pieces from your wardrobe that you find yourself wearing over and over?
Danah & Stacy: Stacy: Denim jackets, denim vests, maxi skirts Danah: Wedges, a nice skirt, and a dressy top
Your most worn piece of jewelry:
Danah & Stacy: Both: Earrings and rings
What is your favorite thing to do in the summer?
Danah & Stacy: Road trips/traveling, hanging out by the beach with awesome friends, and waking up anytime we want! :)
