Full Figured Fashion Week is almost 2 months away! I’m so excited to start planning my trip to New York City. I’ve only been there twice, but never for anything fashion related. You can’t even imagine what being a part of FFFWeek means to me. From here until June 16th (the day FFFWeek starts) I will be giving you weekly updates or features…starting today.

Full Figured Fashion Week, the only plus size fashion week, will invade New York June 16-18 and I can’t be more excited. I’ve only attended the Los Angeles FFF Week and it was beyond amazing. I was a part of The Curvy Collective, a group of bloggers chosen to cover the event. This year the name of the group has changed, it is now The Fashion Front and I have been selected as a member again. I am so very honored to be included with these fellow bloggers!
