Spotlight on You!

Good afternoon everyone!

Today Tamera (AKA “Le Mer”)  is our new “Spotlight on You” participant.  Tamera has been one of my biggest blog supporters and she is the photographer behind my lovely pics!  She approached me about being featured and of course I said yes!  Here’s what  Tamera had to say:

“Always wonder who takes those wonderful Grown and Curvy Woman pictures? Well, me of course, Le Mer! (LOL) Being on this journey with Georgette has been so fun and exciting. I’m so ecstatic about the notice and success of the blog. Can you believe my pictures for “Perfectly Pleated” were featured on WordPress  “Freshly Pressed”?!

I may not be “grown and curvy”, but I have learned great styling tips and am venturing out the box more. I was so excited when I found this colorful, floral maxi dress at Target for $8 (YAY!). Since I’m short, I generally have issues with maxi dresses being too long and dragging on the floor. This dress fit me perfectly and I liked that it accentuates my baby curves!

Big thanks to Georgette for trusting me with taking her pictures.”

Tamera is one of the most sweetest  people I know. She’s always has my back and I’m proud to call her a friend!

If you would like to be featured in “Spotlight on You”, please submit 1 or 2 pictures with a blurb about your outfit to

    What a lovely dress! Gorgeous colors, and I love the kimono sleeves. Le Mer does a fantastic job both in front of and behind the camera!
