Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ Panel & Discussions

We came, we discussed, and we conquered! If there was ever a more productive and powerful day, it had to be yesterday at the Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ Panel & Discussions. I unfortunately missed the first session “The Voluptuous Woman Company, Inc® presents “The PLUS Side of Business”, but I did make it to the “New and Aspiring Models Panel Discussion/Seminar” and “The State of the Curvy Community.” I learned a lot from the top people in the “curvy” business!

Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ Opening Reception & “Curves for a Cure”

Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ officially started last night with a cocktail reception and “Curves for a Cure” fundraiser. It was an amazing night for an amazing cause!

I love you…but I can’t afford you.

There comes a time in our life, where we realize that our love for shoes will sometimes break our hearts. Like these amazingly beautiful Christian Louboutin’s. They are $1,375; more than what most of you pay for rent. That’s where the broken heart comes in. There’s no way I can afford these delicious luxurious suede delights. I guess it’s time to find a replica pair.
