I still can’t believe Full Figured Fashion Week is over…I’m going to start counting down the days until the next one! And I’m STILL posting photos! Unfortunately, I can’t post them all on this blog, so you can find them here on the Curves and Chaos Facebook fan page.
I did want to share what I wore on the night of the Indie Designer Showcase. Lovedrobe sent me this amazing dress by their new sister brand Koko by Koko. The White Patterned Grecian Dress (£38.00 at New Look), was glorious! It was definitely made for a woman with curves and I was in awe of the draping.I’m so impressed with the fit! You can dress this up or down for day or night. It’s so colorful! I wore my new Aldo suede wedges with it.
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.
There’s just something about a maxi dress that makes me smile. See…look below…I’m smiling! LOL! Thank you to Torrid for sending me the Blush Slub Knit Ruffle Maxi Dress ($64). I adored it and I got tons of compliments on it. I was kind of bummed when I had to change later that day.
As you can see, it’s a really great length for me at 5’6 with flat sandals. I might even be able to get away with a wedge without it being too short. That’s one of my pet peeves. I’m a size 16 and this is a Size 1. If you look on the website, the ruffle (on the model) looks longer. Maybe it’s because I’m bigger up top than she is? The top was a little boobie-licious at some times, I had to keep picking it up. Besides that I loved this maxi and I can’t wait to wear it again!
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?
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.
Summer is officially here! And I can’t believe I forgot to wish you a “Happy First Day of Summer!” Bad bad blogger! Well…I hope you’re enjoying your summer so far. Have any of you hit the beach or the pool yet?
The heat is definitely rising in parts of the country and I know you’ll be reaching for your swimwear soon. I don’t know about you, but I’ll be grabbing my swimsuit and my new cover-up.
