In conversation with fellow bloggers at dinner, I was asked who were some of my favorite influencers to follow. Gess Pugh of Gessflyy.com was surprised when I mentioned her name at the top of my list! Anyone who follows Gess instantly connects with her infectious smile, authenticity and genuine love for style. Her name Gessflyy says it all! Gess is a gem!

I met Gess a little over 6 months ago at a blogger event in Atlanta. I was brand new to blogging and didn’t know a single soul. Honestly, I was a bit nervous because it can be hard to meet authentic people in this industry. When I met Gess my doubts faded instantly. We bonded over taking Instagram photos of each other. She took mine, I took hers! She even offered to take more if I didn’t like them. I knew then, this girl is pretty cool! We talked more that night, laughed a ton, followed each other on Instagram and the rest is history. Gess is my blogger babe I can talk to about anything -- from the highs and lows of blogging to personal life.

Gess and I have very similar lifestyles. We are both professional 9-5ers, sorority sisters and are building our personal brands in plus size fashion. Watching Gess reach her goal of walking in a Runway Show during New York Fashion Week, motivated me to push forward to pursue major goals I have set for myself. I was literally shouting with joy as she strutted down the runway. Oh and my sister can walk! Through our conversations, Gess has motivated me to put my fears aside to share adverse experiences that can ultimately help other women.  

I am looking to continue to grow my brand through helping the everyday woman elevate her personal style professionally and socially. My goal is to grow my online presence and eventually transition into television media. Gess desires to grow her brand in PR and fashion and I also see more modeling for her. She’s a natural!


Gess and I are super excited to partner with SEE ROSE GO to highlight their signature tee. I kid you not when I say it is the most comfortable tee I own! I featured the tee in my Must Have Fall Transition Basics Video! It’s SUPER soft, breathable, comfortable and can be styled a ton of different ways. I’m dying over Gess’ modern style approach, pairing the tee with a black vest, leather skirt and rocker booties while my look is a bit more classic. Gess is wearing the tee in grey heather and mine is in burgundy. I chose to style my tee with a black and white detailed skirt, black leather belt and suede booties. It’s a reliable tee I keep on repeat! I love to pair it with wide leg denim trousers and chocolate brown pants. This tee is a must have for every plus size woman! Purchasing this tee is a must and you can save 15% off of your purchase USING CODE RHONDA+SRG15.

The brand was started by two boss women who combined their years of global fashion industry experience to create a quality plus size brand! Gess and I want to recognize more besties supporting each other!
