IATC Takes NYC!!!

12:40:00 PM

This past weekend I traveled to New York City with my sister (owner of KLoft Boutique) to attend a few curvy fashion events and to promote our new brand I Am Team Curvy, a lifestyle brand and boutique we created to promote curves and unity. We definitely thought this would be an awesome time to meet other fashion enthusiasts, bloggers, designers, and network.

FFFWeek Indie Designer Showcase

Friday evening I attended the first event of my trip, FFFWeek Indie Designer Showcase held at the Broad Street Ballroom. This event showcased independent designers creating boots, lingerie, dresses and other fashion. The polka dot peplum skirt and top are definitely one of must haves. Pink and black was a definite popular colored used throughout the collections. Some of the designers included:

ASK Fashion


Hannah Couture



TruDiva Designs

Misty Belvidere

Just Curves Active

Sue Rock

Serita Bell

 What I Wore:

 Skirt: Target -- Velvet Top: F21 -- Denim Clutch: F21

It was great to see more curvy girl clothing options other than our usual retailers. I definitely will be purchasing some pieces to add to my wardrobe. After the fashion show, I headed to Negril Village for some late night Caribbean food and music. The Jerk Chicken was YUM!!!


Saturday I attended theCURVYcon, which was an all day curvy event created by bloggers GarnerStyle and CeCeOlisa, which featured different panel discussions (confidence/self-esteem, fitness, dating) by bloggers, experts, designers, and plus size hosts; shopping from Rebdolls, Eloquii, FTF, eleven60, and more; a lot of valuable curvy girl information and networking. I met soooooo many people...truly an awesome event!

This weekend was definitely full of fashion, curves, and fun! I have never been surrounded by so many positive and curvy women at one time with fashion as a common interest. It felt really good to be able to attend events like these and gather so much information on the plus size industry and of course shop. I scored so many great items and can't wait to share them with you on the blog!

My NYC trip owes me NOTHING! More pics below of my NYC experience. Stay fabulous!
