WOW, I can’t believe Full Figured Fashion Week is finally over. It’s such a bittersweet feeling. The events I attended were amazing and a step in the right direction for the plus size community.
I’ve never seen such support and love for us fashion loving curvy women.
Here are some images from the White on White Sunset Cruise that was held on Thursday night. What do you get when you invite a bunch of curvy girls wearing white on a boat? Fabulousness of course…and a lot of dancing.
Everyone looked great and proved that there are no rules in fashion! Who said we can’t or shouldn’t wear white? We proved them wrong…once again. Thanks for an unforgettable night Gwen and staff!!
I’m wearing a maxi dress from New York & Company, Jessica Simpson peep toe sling backs, an Aldo cross body bag and necklace, and bracelets from Avenue.
Disclosure: I’m a member of The Fashion Front, which allowed me complimentary access into all events. The above is my true and honest opinion.
If you happen to see any words misspelled or words just left out of the sentence, it’s probably because I’m so exhausted. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good kind of exhausted!
I’m so grateful to be here in New York City for Full Figured Fashion Week. It’s such an amazing feeling to be surrounded by all of these people who care about the plus community and fashion industry.
Tonight was the first of events, the Media and Buyer’s Reception. It was held at the Sky Bar. It was such a beautiful day and that rooftop bar was packed! I met so many amazing designers and models. And reconnected with those whom I already know.
Here are a few pics. I loved all of the designs, especially the Queen Grace Collection and the Margaux Kouture dresses. I can’t wait for tomorrow! Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @CurvesandChaos for day 2 of Full Figured Fashion Week!
To say I’m excited about Full Figured Fashion Week is an understatement. As a member of The Fashion Front, I can’t wait for the events, networking, and THE FASHION! I am not only ready to show New York a bunch of curvy love, but I am ready to party with my girls!
And by the way…I leave tomorrow night. I haven’t packed a thing. In fact, I’m not even done shopping. LOL. Yes, I’m “that” person. I did finally get my runway finale dress! It’s a very hip hugging kind of dress. I can’t wait to show you. You will also see a couple of days of outfits from the “one and only” Lane Bryant.
I will post every day and tweet my heart out. Please follow me @CurvesandChaos for all the updates. If you’re going to any of the events, please stop by and say hello. I’d love to meet you.
Full Figured Fashion not only means the world to me, but I know it means the world a lot of you. And now, the fashion world will see the mark we can and will make. Just look at some of the recent press it’s received:
I’m always on the look out for different pieces of jewelery. Especially, different shapes. And I’ve kind of been leaning towards triangles. It’s something a little different and always interesting. There’s nothing like adding a little bit of shape to your necklace, ring, bracelet, or your earrings. I love that black Marc Jacobs bangle. It’s on sale too! It probably won’t fit me because I have man hands! LOL
I’ve been looking for a magenta shoe and I’ve found it. Say hello to my new love affair. I really don’t need many words to describe the love for a shoe. It’s something you either understand or you don’t. And doesn’t a picture speak a thousand words? Just look at these gorgeous H by Halston pumps/wedges I bought at Baker’s yesterday. Yes, they were on sale. Sorry, they aren’t on the web site. I think I actually drooled when I saw the sole on these shoes.
Sometimes, I get a little weird about my eyes. It could be when a makeup artist is putting on eyeliner, rubbing them when I’m tired, or I feel like there a loose eyelash roaming around in there, and especially taking off my eye makeup.
I’ve tried the makeup up removing wipes, but sometimes they’ll burn my eyes. Does that happen to you? And what do you do when you have something irritating your eye? Do you splash it with water a million times, hoping it will come out?
Thank goodness I don’t worry about that anymore. A few months ago, I got a free sample of these VISINE Soothing Wipes. Hellooooo life saver! These bad boys remove eye makeup, irritants with a couple of gentle swipes and no burning! Yay! And like the name say’s, they are soothing. They retail for around $5.99 and up for 30 wipes, but there’s a coupon for $1 off here. Your eyes will thank you for it.
Disclosure: The item was gifted, this is NOT a paid post. The above is my true and honest opinion.
I’m really not sad. LOL. I’m just loving this blue top! I bought this at a yard sale that was held by Stylist Reah Norman. Thanks Reah! It’s by Daniel Rainn and it has these amazing ruffles and pockets. You know how I feel about pockets. I wore it to a high school graduation last night. Which had a whopping 680 graduates by the way and it was in a sports arena! WOW.
Back to the outfit…I went simple with my jewelery, only because the color was so bold. My earrings are these cute little rhinestone bows I bought at Torrid and my bracelets are from Lane Bryant. My shoes are from the Kenneth Cole outlet. These suede wedges have a cool magenta stripe on the heel. The belt is from another top and I had to wear it because the top was a little big and I wanted to add some shape. I really liked this look, I’m guessing it was the color. It made me feel a little sassy! LOL
Handbag shopping is not for the weak. Buying that perfect bag isn’t an easy task. There’s so much to consider; style, color, price, size, designer, and the wow factor. I know! It’s stressful just thinking about it, right?
What if I told you there’s a place, where you can not only shop from an inventory of over 25,000 bags, but you can also sell your own handbags, interact with the sellers, and chat with your buyers all in one place? Do I have your bag obsessed attention now?
Bags Bonanza, is an online marketplace selling designer bags at discount prices. Now, it’s not just any normal marketplace. In fact it’s the best eBay alternative out there. Search for your future bag by brand, style, color, material, and price. It’s sooooo easy to use.
In fact, I’ve been on this vintage handbag kick lately. I found three vintage bags that I’m really interested in. The Dooney and Bourke ($144.95), Gucci ($139.00), and Coach ($18.95). OK, I know the Coach bag is an amazing price, but I’m loving the other one’s too! Ugh! Decisions…decisions.
If you decide you’d rather make a little cash, then selling on Bags Bonanza is really the way to go. Remember, when I said they were the best eBay alternative? Well, they are. Just take a look at their fees. They are over 50% lower. You can even start selling right away and you’ll get automatic Google promotion. Excuse me while I sift through my bag inventory…I just might start selling.
Find the handbag that was meant to be yours. Brands like Fendi, Christian Dior, Burberry, Chloe, and Louis Vuitton are waiting for you! Visit www.Bags.Bonanza.com today.
