Personal Style at FFFWeek’s Indie Show (Photos)

I think this just might be my last post about Full Figured Fashion Week 2013. I’ve done quite a few! Well, since it’s probably the last (unless I come across more photos), I’d love to share some of the looks I saw on the night of the Indie Fashion Showcase. I’ve always been kind of a people watcher, and I can’t enough of other people’s personal style. This night I saw such an eclectic mix of fashion and it was awesome! Read more

Evans Fall/Winter NYC Preview (Photos)

It seems like the photos from my NYC visit will never stop. I apparently took over 900 photos while I was there! That’s a lot to share with you. So, as long as I have them, I’ll share them here. A few of those photos are from the Evans Fall/Winter Preview. I was lucky enough to get an invite and check out what’s to come from the UK retailer! Read more

FFFWeek Indie Designer Showcase: Nakimuli

Here’s another one of my favorite designers from the Full Figured Fashion Week Indie Designers Showcase—Nakimuli! I’m happy to report that this collection was exciting and daring too! Some of my favorite pieces were the swimsuits, but there were a few separates I wouldn’t mind owning as well. Once again a designer, Tennille McMillan, is having fun with curvy fashion!  Read more

Rue 114 Rocks the FFFWeek Runway

I imagine the designer of Rue 114, Serwah Asante, to be this really cool, vibrant, and carefree woman. I’ve never met her, but I just get that vibe when I look at her collection. Even her motto is awesome—”Great style should be available in all sizes because fabulous, fierce, kick-ass women come in all sizes!” I couldn’t have said it better myself. Read more

My Favorite FFFWeek Runway Photos

Phew!! I’ve finally uploaded all of my Full Figured Fashion Week photos to the Curves and Chaos Facebook page! View them here. It felt like it took forever, but it was sooooo worth it! I rediscovered my love for photography and can’t wait to start taking a few classes and investing in equipment. Watching these models walk down the runway, I was so inspired to capture every moment. I’ve gathered a few of my favorite runway images below.  Read more

FFFWeek Indie Designer: SK WilLBUR & Ashley Nell Tipton

I seriously think the photos will never stop! LOL! In an attempt to bring you all the amazingness from Full Figured Fashion Week…this is the last post with individual designers. The next two will contain all of the remaining designers. If I continued at this rate, then I’d be posting for a few weeks. And by then, you’ll be sick of me and FFFWeek! LOL! OK…enough of that. Here are two creative and inspiring designers SK WiLBUR and Ashley Nell Tipton.

FFFWeek Indie Designer Showcase: Curvato

Who loves dramatic glamour? I do! I do! That’s what Nicci Gilbert-Daniels gave us with her line…Curvato. As a member of the popular R&B group Brownstone, Nicci experienced low self-esteem “because of my size..Stylist often had to special order or custom make my clothing because buying fashionable clothing off the rack was not an option for me like it was for many of my peers.” Who hasn’t felt this or experienced this in some way?

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 of the latest fashions from Sydney’s Closet, S.W.A.K, and Catherines, but we took pictures, won prizes, got mini-manicures, and makeup touch ups! There were a lot of fashionable bloggers there too.

Of course I have pics for you…

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?

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!
