FFFWeek Indie Designer Showcase: Youtheary Khmer

I first saw Youtheary Khmer show at Full Figured Fashion Week(end) in Los Angeles and she really stood out to me. That was two years ago and today she’s still impressing fashionistas around the world. Her current collection sold out the day it went on sale online. I think items are still on back order! I had a chance to chat with her at the recent FFFWeek press event and she’s still trying to catch her breath. She’s a very talented designer and I wish her nothing but success.

FFFWeek 2012 “Sonsi Be-YOU-tiful Pop-Up Party”

Full Figured Fashion Week 2012 was jammed pack with activities for bloggers, which I loved! I mean, come on…we’re the voice of fashion in the social media world. But, of course, that’s just my opinion LOL! I know one brand that appreciates that and definitely knows it is Sonsi. If you’re living in a cave and don’t know who they are…they’re an online marketplace destination that offers shopping and socializing for women sizes 12 and above. Sonsi hosted the “Be-You-tiful” Pop-Up Party for us bloggers and it was so much fun! Not only did we get a look at some…

Full Figured Fashion Week 2012 “JMS Style Breakfast”

And the photos keep on coming! Yes, I told you I took over 2,000 photos…I was not kidding. LOL! On day two of Full Figured Fashion Week, we were invited to a breakfast by Just My Size (JMS). We got a look at their summer collection and a sneak peek into their fall/winter line. I’m loving their undies! We chatted and ate yummy food. It was also a great way to meet the JMS team whom I’ve been working with. They’re so great and dedicated to dressing the plus size woman. Are you a JMS fan?  Disclosure: I received a…

Full Figured Fashion Week 2012 “Curves In The City” Shopping Event

Who doesn’t love shopping? Really? The Full Figured Fashion Week “Curves In The City” shopping event was pretty much what I needed at this point. I snatched up a beautiful Queen Grace dress for $34! In my world, that’s pretty exciting! Vendors sold clothes, jewelry, beauty products, and accessories. I even got a bra fitting by Cacique, which you should get every 6 months by-the-way. And don’t get me started on the cake pops I devoured courtesy of MYNT 1792-they definitely have my attention right now. Of course, I was snapping away…here are more pics! *All photos were taken by…

Full Figured Fashion Week “Curves at Sea” All White Sunset Cruise

As we waited in line to board Full Figured Fashion Week’s “Curves at Sea” All White Sunset Cruise, all I could think of was how beautiful everyone looked. Of course, I was also looking to see how many of these beautiful ladies were wearing the same thing, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that there were only one or two repeats. Yay! I know it was hard to find what I was going to wear. LOL! The cruise was so much fun with the Sonsi Photo Booth (that I missed), the swag bags, and the FFFWeek Big and Tall…

Full Figured Fashion Week 2012 Press Event

PHEW!!! I’m back from Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFWeek) in New York and I’m exhausted! LOL! But, it’s a good kind of exhausted. Let me just start off my saying, that if you haven’t made it out to any of the FFFWeek events, then I highly recommend you trying to attend next year. It was such an amazing experience!! To see fashion for us on a runway  in New York City never gets old! I was a member of The Fashion Front, a selected group of bloggers to cover all of the FFFWeek events. We were given early access and…

Thanks to Plus Model Magazine for the heads up on these two videos. Vice.com (from the UK), covered Full Figured Fashion Week for their series “Fashion Week Internationale.” I’d really love to know what you think after watching both videos.

I can’t believe Full Figured Fashion Week is all done and over with. My week in NYC went by in a minute! Before I knew it, the runway finale was upon us.The event was held in a hotel located in Times Square and I can tell you the energy at the event was ten times more than what was going on outside.I know I might sound like a broken record, but I can’t stress how amazing it is to have all of these amazingly full figured, plus sized, curvaceous, shapely, or whatever you want to call it, women in one room drooling…

FFFWeek: The Pulse of the Plus Size Community Panel

If there is one thing I will take away from Full Figured Fashion Week, it has to be what I learned about our community. As part of The Fashion Front, we were involved in a lot of activities, but The Pulse of the Plus Size Community Panel was my favorite.The panel consisted of Jill Hutchison of Sonsi, Katheryn Finney The Budget Fashionista, Madeline Figueroa-Jones of Plus Model Magazine, Jennene Biggins the Founder and CEO Voluptuous Woman Company, Leslie Medlik of Redress, and was moderated by Comedian Erica Watson. We discussed so many things, but really focused on what our issues…
