Full Figured Fashion Week OOTD: Media Reception

It’s HAWT. I’m Beat. Jetlag has kicked in, YET I have found my second wind. In the midst of my travels this week (pardon the lack of posts, but you will get them all throughout the rest of the week I promise!) I was extremely geeked and excited for the kickoff events for Full Figured Fashion Week- as this ALWAYS sets the tone for my experience!

The Curvy Fashionista in Rachel Pally White Label

With my outfit sponsored by Rachel Pally White Label (you need to get to know her like for reals!), I wanted to be relaxed, yet polished and put together! So in my Green Lucia Maxi Dress (seriously for my 5’8” and up divas), you will love the length! LONG ENOUGH for your stems! I promise! LOL

The Curvy Fashionista in Rachel Pally White label

I paired the look with my bangle attack from The Avenue and Lane Bryant, paired with my Ideeli ring, and my ASOS Clutch! Woot!

I am trying some new things with my hair this week, and I am not sure how fabulously it will work, but her I braided back one side giving some depth and playfulness to it! What do you think here?

The media reception took place at the Sky Room, ROOFTOP on the top of the Fairfield Hotel and my oh my was it stellar! Great and amazing people, great drinks, great fashions, great models- It was a BLAST!!!!!! The who’s who in plus size fashion made their way to this media event and it was phenomenal! I met amazing models, executives, sponsors, designers, and fellow bloggers in the mix! Woot!


What do you think? Did my look make the grade for you?

Also, please make sure to stay tuned in today as I will be updating you on my experience with the Bali Intimate apparel event as well as some cool things to share!
