Curves and the City

9:50:00 PM

I had the opportunity to head to NYC for an awesome "curvy week" including Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFWeek) and theCURVYcon. These two events create a fabulous week of curvy events such as fashion shows, style classes, informational panels with curvy bloggers, plus-size retailers, and plus-size women in the industry, and networking with curvy fashion enthusiasts and professionals. It is truly an awesome awesome experience and very beneficial for a blogger/fashion enthusiast like myself; to be able to speak with other bloggers, meet designers of some of my favorite brands, and of course shop!!! 

Designer JIBRI, showcased her new Bridal collection, for the traditional and non-traditional bride. The JIBRI Bridal collection ranges from $500-2,500 and includes, a tea length dress, jumpsuit, traditional ball gown, caftan, black fringe dress, and the JIRBI signature style dress.

FFFWeek and Lord and Taylor hosted a fashion show featuring plus designers Lauren by Ralph Lauren, Jessica Simpson, Marc New York, NYDJ, and Adrianna Papell to name a few.

The turn-up got so REAL at the GwynnieBee VIP Party for theCURVYcon. I got a chance to snap a pic with one half of theCURVYcon creators, CeCe Olisa -- Stlylist, GooGoo Atkins -- Model and super bomb chick, Felicity Hayward. The party included bomb music that kept everyone on the dance floor, a few Photo Booth stations (I couldn't resists), and fashion show.

Photo Booth Fun!!!

Model Felicity Hayward and I (she is tons of fun)

Not only was theCURVYcon kick off bomb, but theCURVYcon itself was amazing. I got the chance to hear some great advice and information on blogging, finding my personal style, and the plus-size retail industry; mix and mingle with other fashion enthusiasts, models, and bloggers; shop with ASOS, Rachel Roy, Eleven60, Fashion to Figure, and SimplyBe. Not to mention the SWAG BAG was awesome! I look forward to theCURVYcon next year, which will be during NY Fashion Week!!!
