Ultimate ‘SWAG’ Giveaway!!

Ever since I heard I about Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ coming to Los Angeles, I knew I had to plan a major giveaway in honor of it.

So, I started thinking…When we think about fashion events, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? I don’t know about you, but I think of SWAG!! Also known as the “free stuff” that companies and brands give out at events; swag is what a lot of us look forward to. And that’s just what you’re going to get.

One and only one lucky winner will win ALL of the following from these amazing sponsors: Torrid, Carolina Pad, T.J.Maxx,  Lingerie.com, Cosabella, Phoenicia Goddess, Sofia Valle Co., Size Appeal, and Eucerin.

Torrid, the destination for trendy plus-size fashion, wants you to win this fierce package worth $275! You’ll get a Hello Kitty Black Patent Embossed Overnight Bag, Hello Kitty Denim Wallet, Leopard Sequin Laptop Case, Black Zip Studded Wristlet, Z. Cavarrici Couture Sunglasses, Z. Cavarrici Couture Perfume, Supermodel Candles by Whitney Thompson, and assorted hair accessories.
Carolina Pad, a place to find fun, trendy, and cool stationary, caught my eye at BlogHer 2010. I knew I had to get them involved in this giveaway. Their products are not only fashionable, but very practical. It’s what every lady on the go needs! Carolina Pad’s notebooks, binders, and other products definitely stand out from the crowd. You’ll have the chance to win this ultimate “red hot” prize pack!

 

T.J.Maxx, a brand name and designer fashion haven, wants you to bask in their 60% off department store prices with this $100 gift card! With over 900 stores nationwide, you’ve definitely got options. Maybe you can get those pair of shoes you’ve had your eye on or that handbag that calls you every time you step into your local T.J.Maxx. You’re welcome Maxxinistas!
Lingerie.com
Lingerie.com was created to bring you the sexiest lingerie! And no giveaway would be complete without a little bit of sexy. I know you’ll definitely feel sexy in these sheer thing highs with the back seam in black and white. If this doesn’t get someone’s heart pumping…well…we will just leave it at that.
Cosabella believes that a women’s lingerie should be able to reflect her every mood. Being that they offer their collection in more than 30 colors, there’s a chance they’ve got all the moods covered. I can tell you one thing, their “Never Say Never Lovely Thong” is more than yummyliscious! Lucky you will have the chance to win 4 pairs!

    I think FFFW events are great because they give designers an opportunity to reach their target market and they give the consumers a chance to see what's available for the plus size customer. They present opportunities for collaboration and networking and make the community stronger in general.

    FFFW is important to the curvy community because it allows plus women and designers to showcase how fashionably beautiful we can be. It's also an eye opener to those who don't know about full figured fashion and those who don't take the plus community seriously.

    i believe events like these are extremely important because we (girls with curves) deserve to look and feel good. Just because we dont starve ourselves too look like stick figures doesnt mean we dont matter! Over 75% of our population are in the curvy category and I do believe designers and people in general forget that because TV glorifies women who are thin or stick figures. These kinds of events also help those who do have a hard time with their curviness feel good about thereselves. If you look good you feel good!

    I feel like clothing designers, manufacturers and especially retailers are beginning to realize what we have known for a long time. Plus sized fashion is important, we are no longer okay with just having clothes that fit, we want to look good too. I'm starting to see more clothing in extended sizes or curvy friendly fits popping up on stores, it's great to have all us curvy girls get together for that common purpose. especially after what happened in Milan, trash talking a brand just because they cater to plus-size women? That's unacceptable.

  • Myesha

    I think events like Full Figured Fashion Week are important to the "curvy" community b/c it helps others see that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. It also helps Full Figured women build their confidance and see other beautiful full figured women Rocking their size.

    I think events like Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ are important to the "curvy" community because they help us consolidate what we already know — plus size fashion rocks and plus size women love fashion. Events like this help get women out of the back corner of the store.

    I think that these events are important because they help to create a sense of community within the plus-size fashion world. I think we really need that sense of togetherness if we want plus-sized fashion to become recognized and accepted as a real movement and valid form of fashion.

    I think events like FFFW are important because they allows us to intereact with and meet many other members of the plus size community! By coming together, we are able to get our voices heard and portray a powerful message to the fashion industry and the rest of the world that we "Yes, we are curvy, but that doesnt mean we cant be fashionable as well." I personally wish I had the opportunity to attend one of these events, but I cant afford to or I am unable to travel to/from them! But I am glad to see so many plus sized girls take advantage of such events! :)

    I think those kinds of events are so important to our community because they raise awareness in many ways! First- it lets everyone know that you can be fierce and fashionable at ANY size! Second- it sends a message to the fashion community that curvy women are out there too and have just as much money to spend! and Third- it gives us a way to band together for support, encouragement, and strength so that our voices can be heard!

  • elle ar

    Events like FFFW are so important because they give a voice to huge grouping of women. We all know that the average american woman is a size 14 yet we only see size 0 models in print and stores cater to that same sizing. So where does that leave us curvy gals in the fashion world. Personally I think its events like FFFW and blogs like this that help give us gals a voice!

  • sayjayphoto

    These events are so important because young girls need to see that beauty isn't limited to what the popular magazines say it is. There is more out there than what's commonly portrayed and that is usually the most beautiful. You have to look past the obvious!

  • Sabrina

    I think events like FFFWeek and the OneStopPlus.com show that just happened at NYFW are important as it shows the fashion world that just because we aren't model/sample size doesn't mean we don't have taste or want wear the lastest trends.

    It also give's the consumers the ability to see first hand and hear first hand what is going on in the plus size world and to know that we aren't hiding ashamed anymore and are here to stay.

    I think these kinds of events are important because it helps build community. I only know one other fat person in my town who is interested in fashion and until I found the online fatshion community, I didn't know where to buy clothes. Bringing the community together is vital not only to help each other find cute clothes and prove to retailers that we are a market but also for support.

    I think FFF first and foremost creates an outlet for designers to put forth their creations for the plus size market in the mainstream media. I think more importantly though, it is helping to change the negative stereotypes and impressions that a great deal of people still hold about larger women and men.

  • Lucky’s Luna

    I think Full Figured Fashion Week(end)is very important to the (curvy) community because us Curvy ladies need to be represented in fashion and see ourselves in that industry which typically closes its doors to our curves. As a plus size woman I know how hard it is to find trendy clothes to fit me and accentuate my curves; I would love to know about more companies that support us.

    Sorry I didn't have my email on my first post. Here is what I said about the importance of FFFW.

    I think FFF Weekend is important because it gives voluptuous women OPTIONS… I live in NC and the only stores that are in my city that are plus sized are Avenue, Catherines, LaneBryant, and AshleyStuart. Though these are great store AshleyStuart is the only one that caters to the younger woman. When I see photos from FFFW I see that there are other designers out there that want to make me look as good as I want to. Though I am unable to attend any fashion show, they give me a glimmer of hope :)

    my email is: shaniqua.cates@yahoo.com

  • Ginny

    I think they are important because the curvy body is the more common body. Clothes are made to fit a size women that hardly exists, especially after childbirth.

    Events like full figure fashion week(end) are important because it's the acceptance of the real world with how fabulous plus size women are. plus the fashion world should see that not everyone is a size 2 and everybody loves to be fashionable no matter what the size.

    We're living in a time where everything is possible. Not to say it hasn't been before but and time is NOW. Events like FFFW are a catapult for the curvy movement. We are living in a moment where more and more fashions are being designed for the curvy woman. Events like FFFW will showcase designers, brands, and stores we may have never even heard of. They will open our minds to dressing up our bodies, working with our curves, flaunting our fabulous jelly and staying fashionable while bringing together more and more curvy women. We are not alone, 60% of America is plus sized and it's time events like this began taking place to really showcase fashions for the majority of America. Events like this help bring positive energy, new outlooks, and inspiration to the curvy women who still hide behind large ill fitting clothes today! This is why it's so important to support and participate in events like these. With so many bbw around in one building it will be hard not to have a positive outlook on life and become inspired to look fashionable everyday. I'm excited for FFFW and I'll be very dissapointed if I don't make it! This is a must see and it is an event I would love to share with my fellow viewers on YT who still beleive "they can't" be fashionable because theire is "no fashion" for the "real" plus sized woman! I'd love to prove them wrong and events like this will open eyes and outlooks on so many lives! Wow…long I know!!

    I think events like these are so important, because they show the world that plus size ladies can be fashionable and want to be fashionable. I think they show the fashion world that you can make stylish clothes for larger body types that will sale and they show plus size ladies that you can wear great clothes that are every bit as stylish as the size zeros on traditional runways.

  • Sabrina

    Having gone my first year to FFFW in NY this past June and now just coming out of our own very first Pittsburgh Fashion Week 2010 this past week, I find that these events are very important to the curvy community because we make up 60% of the world's population so there HAS to be a venue for us. Even incorporating it into the regular Fashion Weeks is very important just as we've done in Pittsburgh because we all need to feel included in life and society. If the industry doesn't take their noses out of the air and open their eyes to see that we're the major consumer…THEY'LL be the ones left behind!!!

    I think having Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ is very important to all the wonderful curvylicious women out there. It lets us know that there is designers out there who wish to design fashionable clothing pieces for us. If more bigger name designers would design clothes for plus size women there will be more opportunities for girls who want to become plus size models. I am glad though that there are these events and that slowly fashion designers are opening up to other type of women out there not just sizes like (xs-m) lol We count too.

    I think FFFW is important to everyone. Gives the usual designers a to reach a broader audience and be more creative because they have more to work with and and even more fans than usual. FFFW is awesome for curvy ladies like myself because it gives us the confidence to not only be beautiful but to be ourselves and not try to conform to society's "standards".

    I think events like this is good for the plus sized community. We need events to boost our self esteem and self image. I have been plus sized all my life and have always had a difficult time finding nice clothes which still made me feel youthful and sexy.

    Do you have any clue as to how long it took all these comments to load on my phone? Lol I have to enter! :)

    I'm with Gabi, it does feel like an essay. Hmm but events like fffw are important because it presents options to curvy shoppers. There are other places that cater to us.

    I think events like the Full Figured Fashion Week are important to the curly community so that larger women can feel confident and look beautiful on the outside. The self-esteem of some members of the curvy community can be enhanced as their inner beauty is able to radiate more strongly. Plus size women are fashionable and beautiful too and events like this allow them to know that there is nothing out there that they cannot do or achieve.

    I always think it's important to honor women of all shapes and sizes. It's no fun for the MAJORITY of the population to feel left out because designers won't design for us. It's also no fun for our girls to create and maintain unhealthy body images.

    Thanks to you for raising the point and thanks to ALL of the awesome sponsors!!! :)

    i think that full figured and plus sized events are important for the curvy community because they not only allow those who are already proud and accepting of their bodies to convene and celebrate but it also allows for other girls and women to see that its okay to be proud of the body that they have and that there are many other beautifully shaped women who feel the same.

    As 1st generation immigrant & Latina & a curvy woman It is essential for a women of ALL ages to feel sexy & beautiful no matter what their size is. Fashion for decades have been for the most part prejudice & main streaming anorexic skinny models & non average/accurate sizes on the runways & in the major department stores. Full Figured Fashion Week(end) is essential because women of all sizes love fashion & want to feel & look great in clothes whether they are "in season" or "in style" Full Figured Fashion Week(end) is the best thing since sliced bread!

    I think it's crucial that all women be free to explore and be creative with their own personal style..it shouldn't be a chore to go shopping because clothes aren't made to fit real women's bodies. To just go out and have a fun time shopping and feeling good about herself is something so many women miss out on.

    Tim Gunn was recently speaking about how he would design clothes for the real figured/plus sized woman because he went into the "Woman"s section of a department store and the clothes were just horrifying – awful prints and unflattering cuts. That's why FFFW is important – let's see and participate in the creation of beautiful clothing for the curvy ladies.

    full figured fashion week is important to fatshionistas because it's encouraging to see other women of size dressing themselves respectfully and well. it helps ALL women to see that they deserve to hold their heads high and present themselves like they love themselves – even if they aren't quite there yet. and events like fffw help women to see that they're ok. there's nothing wrong with them. even if they wear something bigger than a straight size!

    I believe FFFWeek has helped catapult more plus size fashion into mainstream. Although I do love companies like Lane Bryant, Avenue, and Torrid it is great to see more independent designers creating unique pieces. Plus size women are gorgeous and just as desirable as any other wowman. I can not wait for more designers to step up and begin using our curves in even more creative ways as well.

    Full-Figured Fashion Week is important, because it lets the fashion industry know that we have a voice. Full-figured women value their money, and we won't spend it on just anything. We want beautiful clothing,and advertisers should cater to us.

    I feel that events like Full Figured Fashion Week(end) are important because it celebrates the fact that a bigger size doesn't make us any less sexy or feminine than straight sized women. We all have an individual voice and stance on what it is to be curvy in this size 0 obsessed society, but occasions like this set a forum for us all to join together and make our voices heard.

    I think FFFW is so so important! I know for me, personally, I've struggled a lot with insecurity — I still do — so major events like FFFW help me to realize that I am not alone… There there are strong, powerful, beautiful, curvy women out there that I can connect with, especially because I don't have anyone in my everyday life that I can connect with in that way. FFFW helps me understand how beautiful I can be!

  • Lisa

    I think it's great that designers are noticing that not all women are a size 8 or below. The average women wears a size 10-14 so it would be a whole lot easier for us curvy girls to have more options that are both stylish and hot!

    FFFW is a great way to give the industry a reality check. Curvy or not, the reality is people come in different sizes. (and people love to shop, in whatever size they may be haha) This event can certainly help either someone who was feeling down by the fact that he or she cannot buy something because it does not come in their size, or maybe even open up someone else mind about what the "right" size is. Since in the end it's all about embracing oneself!

    i think events like FFFW are very important because it serves to bring the under-served plus fashion consumer w/ creative designers together and shines light on a oft-ignored goldmine of fashion consumers. while mainstream fashion providers are now struggling to catch up, the plus size consumer is that much more heard and powerful.
