City of Style: Marie Denee’s Atlanta

City of Style: Marie Denee’s Atlanta

by Melissa Magsaysay

“I feel like I can breathe a little easier,” says Marie Denee, founder of popular lifestyle site, The Curvy Fashionista about her adopted home of Atlanta, GA.

A California native, Denee moved to Atlanta 5 years ago and has since become steeped in the community as an influential force of fashion, hosting events and advocating for plus-size fashion. Since launching her site, Denee has amassed a strong and captive community who stay informed and connected through her thoughtful content and live conferences.

Part of her creative inspiration are the surroundings in which she finds herself in the vibrant and bustling southern city.

“I love that Atlanta gives you Hollywood vibes, city living, greenery and a well rounded quality of life,” she says. “I am currently campaigning for my younger sister and her family to move here. The weather does not get too extreme, especially in the winter time. And the food is great!”

Denee’s love for Atlanta doesn’t stop there. Here she gives us her absolute must go places throughout the city just in time for 11 Honoré’s first event this week - a trunk show featuring exclusive designer collections on July 24th and 25th at the Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead.

Best place to grab a bite

I have to say I love Calla Bar and Grill. It is a Jamaican Restaurant and they have the best Jerk pasta!

Your favorite shopping spot

Ponce City Market is a great go to. From amazing food to makeup and the rooftop park, I am a fan of this place. There is always something to do and experience. They even have an amazing crystal store there.

Where to go for creative inspiration

This is interesting, because I get inspiration from everywhere. But, I would have to say The Gathering Spot. It is a members-only coworking space that has a unique vibe. I can brainstorm business ideas, people watch and be inspired by style, or take in the scenery.

Your favorite place for taking in nature

Honestly, I love going outside on my patio, but the Botanical Gardens in Atlanta are breathtaking as well!
