Wear is… A’Tavia Tatiana?

Hi! Welcome back to Wear is She Wednesdays, a series that highlights one special girl each week to let her shine! Every Wednesday, we feature a different “she,” and get the scoop on her style, what makes her tick, and how the heck we can learn to be as awesome as she is. Today we’re asking the question everyone wants to know… Wear is A’Tavia Tatiana?


Amidst so much uncertainty, A’Tavia Tatiana is the kind of confident power woman we need these days. From California to Paris, she’s taking the world by storm and making up her own rules as she goes along. A’Tavia not only creates one Cali-casual-meets-French-girl-chic outfit after another (seriously, can we steal your wardrobe? Please and thanks.), more importantly, she’s creating space for everyone to go beyond societal norms and declare beauty for themselves. 

So if  you’re ready to meet your new favorite style icon, keep reading for A’Tavia’s thoughts on fruit earrings, pinstripe trousers and life in Paris.

Hi A’Tavia! Please introduce your wonderful self! 

My name is A’Tavia, or A’Tavia Tatiana, comme tu veux (as you want). I am a digital creator living as an ex-pat in Paris. Originally from Los Angeles but after I decided the acting world was way too close-minded, I decided to create my own content in a place I love. 

1. How would you describe your style in 3 words?

My style in three words – bold, airy, freedom.

2. Who or what are your current biggest style inspirations?

 Right now, I love @stylejelly, @jeannedamas, @misslionhunter, @museuniform, if I could explain my style it would be somewhere between the colliding worlds of those women. I am a big fan of color and they all mesh it so effortlessly. Also, Rihanna, Zendaya, and Tracee Ellis Ross are always on my list.

3. What does personal style mean to you?

Where I am in life right now, I don’t think I have a personal style. Since committing to slow fashion, my style has been all over the place! I’m really just going with the flow. Sometimes I just feel like that kid who’s parents’ let them dress themselves. Not a lot makes sense, and truly it’s a little tacky, haha. I’m also plus size, so without fast fashion, I have no cohesive style… and I like it. 

4. What’s on your thrift list right now?

A great pair of pinstripe trousers! I have this look I’ve been wanting to create for literally years, but I have yet to find the pants. Also mom jeans, maybe dad jeans. PANTS! I don’t have much success when it comes to thrifting bottoms in my size so I’m always on the lookout. 

5. Who would you invite to your fantasy dinner party?

 Tyler, the creator, because I adore his use of color. He’s been my husband for years and he doesn’t know it. An artist and fellow Paris ex-pat @_purple_palace. She wears these really cool fruit earrings that she makes, and her style just exudes freedom to me. Zendaya and @misslionhunter. If I could somehow invite just the fashion of Carrie Bradshaw without the Sex and the City drama, that would also be great hahaha.

6. And the bonus question I like to ask everyone before they go: what’s something you’re really proud of right now?

I’m launching my own plus-size vintage store very soon! @wapsvintage on Instagram. It’s always been an idea tickling the back of my head, now I’ve taken the time to make it a reality. 

Where else can we find you, A’Tavia?

Yes!! My Youtube channel is A’Tavia Tatiana. I make videos about my life in Paris, thrifting, travel and so much more. So many of the blogs show only one side of everything, I show it all. I also have a blog, where I share my travels and fashion too https://ataviatatiana.com/, also of course on Instagram: @ataviatatiana
