Oh Emme Dress from Monif C How I love you…

Let me count the ways:

  • The strategic color-blocking
  • The hug of the curves
  • The hit at the top of my knee

…ah yes.

Each fall, there are a few new pieces that land in my closet that I just JADORE. The EMME dress from Monif C. is one of those that I am in love with.

The Monif C Emme Dress

I was invited by Miss Dunnie O to one of her fabulous mixers at Phillip Chow LA for her Tweet and Greet Series as a featured blogger, so I knew I had to put my best curve forward… AND THIS Monif C EMME DRESS made it possible!

The Monif C Emme Dress

I rocked this dress with a quickness with these shoes I snagged from Ideeli (GOD, I love that place)! Seriously, I ordered this dress the day Monif C’s Fall 2011 Collection went live. I waited long enough!

Heels putting me at damn near 6 feet, I was happy I was able to sit most of the night!

Let me just tell you, I loved myself in this dress! You couldn’t tell me that I was not on fire! This dress was that good to me! LOL

BUT! The Tweet & Greet! I connected with my friends and met quite a few new ones!

    The first time I saw that dress, I seriously just stared at my monitor for a few minutes trying to process the awesomeness of it. I just knew that I would be seeing my favorite curvy ladies rocking the hell out of this dress as soon as it was available. You have done this dress justice – you are FIERCE!!!
