My sweet, creative, and stylish friend Katie, along with two of her best friends, recently launched a new blog, 3 Average Girls, and I can’t wait to tell you about it — well, or let her tell you about it. It’s a fashion blog for the rest of us — for the real world ladies who don’t have a giant budget or a Barbie body — and really, isn’t that most of us?
What inspired you to create 3 Average Girls (3AG)? It has been less of a journey and more of a realization. We knew we loved fashion, and we also knew we loved to share each other’s clothes — despite very different styles. But it wasn’t until we started to search the blog world for style inspiration that we realized very few sites for average sized women existed. Sure, there were sites for stunning plus size women. There were also plenty of blogs featuring body (and budget) envying women with abundant fashion advice. But…where was the blog for the average girls? Out of this question, 3 Average Girls was born. The ladies of 3AG want to be a place for all average women to go to when looking searching for wardrobe basics, beauty tips, or creative ways to rock whatever style and figure they best identify with.
So, who is the average girl? The average girl is amazing! Let’s not down play her awesomeness by misunderstanding the title. She is the type of woman who works hard, plays hard, and wants to look good doing it. She has areas on her body that she wants to hide and parts that she knows how to work. She is inspired by Pinterest, but wants to make the looks function in real life, on her body. The average girl is looking for other average girls to show off their affordable fashion. The average girl is you and me!
Who do you identify with? Maybe the best part of 3AG is that it brings three very different women together. Rachel, “the hipster,” is a college student with a relaxed style and spunky personality. She gives advice on how to layer, be budget friendly, and prioritize. Michelle, “the fashionista,” is a business woman who is up on all trends. She’s likely to share wisdom about beauty tips, making trends work, and rocking fabulous accessories. Katie, “the classy lady,” is a teacher with energy to spare and tons of drive. You can find her dispensing inspiration about simplicity, making trends work in a timeless way, and accentuating what you’ve got.
The best websites + blogs fill a need and connect with an audience that no one else is reaching, and this style blog really is doing that! The ladies show how to style pieces in a down-to-earth way, showing how trends look on real bodies (love their ‘How she wore it Wednesday‘ posts, and, of course, how to get the look for less. Head over and show them some love!
