I’m Ragini, a thirty something plus size fashion blogger with a fondness for the eccentric. I’m unapologetically fat and femme, and this blog is a chronicle of my personal style over the years. I’ve been body positive since before I started this blog, and I don’t care much for the idea of ‘flattering’ clothes. I believe in wearing what you want, however you want, and the freedom to do whatever you want with your own body. Life’s too short to not dress the way you’ve always dreamed of!

This year I’ve been blogging about maternity fashion as I prepare to welcome my daughter into the wider world. Pregnancy has been a fascinating journey so far and I can’t wait to chronicle more of it along with my experience of motherhood in the months to come!

I currently live in Newcastle Upon Tyne with my husband. In the time that A Curious Fancy has existed, I’ve also lived in York, Calcutta, and Bangalore (in that order.)

I spent some time a few years ago baring my soul in the form of the personal essay for the internet at large to consume and dissect. Those days are mostly behind me now, as I currently write a lot less and hopefully with more substance. I’ll always look back with pride on the work I produced for Rookie between 2013 and 2016, and you can still read those pieces on the Rookie archive.

A Curious Fancy has been featured in Grazia and Marie Claire India, Bust Magazine, Buzzfeed, The Guardian, The Huffington Post, The New York Times, Teen Vogue, Bustle, and Cosmopolitan UK, among many others. In 2018, A Curious Fancy won the award for the best plus size blog at the Cosmopolitan India blogger awards.
