While I took the week off to attend many of the events at Full Figured Fashion Week I did it knowing that I wouldn’t be able to afford to attend the two major signature events, one being the All White Party. Needless to say it was a pleasant surprise and an honor to be given the chance to attend the cruise for the very first time. (Major thanks to Lisa of Mustang Sally Two!) The “Curves At Sea All White Party” is well known for being the hottest ticket on the FFFWeek event schedule with people even flying in from other countries just to attend. Brooke and I were so excited we arrived at the pier no less than a full hour before the suggested early arrival time. It worked out for the best though since it gave us time to do a mini shoot by the pier before boarding the ship.
With Fashion Week comes exclusive first-looks of new collections from various brands. The first one for the week was for the newest Fit for Me intimate apparel and casual wear. We were presented with a fashion show that showcased some of the latest style trends with styled with pieces from the collection by celebrity stylist, Denise Caldwell. Many of the looks demonstrated how the collection could work with items we already have in our own wardrobes transitioning from work to gym as well as highlighting just how smooth their seamless briefs and camis are under dresses. No panty lines! The collection will be available on Walmart.com and Amazon.com September 2017. Continue reading
It’s that time of year again – Full Figured Fashion Week! Considering how much fun last year was I simply had to make the effort and attend this year as well. So just like last year I’m sharing this experience with all of you as I will be recapping the events of the week here on the blog as well as sharing my outfits for each day. Here’s to FFFWeek 2017!
Day 1 – Rooftop Summer Fun
This year the festivities kicked off with a Curvy Music, Film and Art Festival. With live music on the roof, a screening of the PLUS! documentary by Sandra Chum and Kalisha Whitman and a showcase of curvy art, it was an afternoon well spent celebrating all things curvy and chic.
One of the perks of attending theCURVYcon as a Teal ticket holder was the huge swag bag. I know that social media is full of buzz surrounding the Platinum bag, but I wanted to share how awesome the Teal swag bag is too. I should also mention that this video serves a dual purpose as not only am I sharing my swag but submitting a contest entry to win a new Canon DSLR camera. Wish me luck!
Note: This video was filmed between the hours of 2 and 3 AM in the morning which is why I am kind of all over the place.

Style notes: In this video I am wearing the crop eyelet shell top from Lane Bryant in a size 18.
Full Figured Fashion week started this past Sunday and I couldn’t be any more excited. This is my first year attending some events and while I didn’t get the chance to go to some of the signature ones, I will be recapping my experience on the blog up until this weekend a.k.a. The Curvy Con!
Day 1- Redefining Healthy Panel
This afternoon event hosted by Darlene of Suits, Heels and Curves, was so inspiring and empowering that I can’t even put to words. The workshop with its panel, conversation circle, makeup tutorial and Vixen workout covered the importance of self love, mental health, claiming your sexy, cultivating your style, and putting your best face on; all stressing that size does not determine your worth, beauty or your health. #iamredefininghealthy from here on out.
