How do I even recap this night?
I cried. Twice. Overwhelmed is an understatement. Humbled, grateful, blessed, elated, relieved, honored, and excited.
With the help of Chenese Lewis (for motivating me to go for it), Miss Dunnie O (who helped execute and plan it), Emile Ennis who captured the event on film and William Utley who shot the whole event, along with the love and support of Plus Model Magazine, this night was quite magical for me!
On Saturday, Jan. 7th at Philippe Chow in West Hollywood, friends, readers, colleagues, and loved ones gathered together for a night of celebrating, drinking, fashion, and networking!
Guests arrived to a step and Repeat with title sponsors Queen Grace, Jill Alexander, L.A. Models+, and Lane Bryant on the backdrop to be interviewed by the ever so amazing Chenese Lewis! Rolling up to the event, my jaw dropped in disbelief as I questioned to my friends who all these ladies were standing outside. Surely, there was another event going on!
As I walked up in my D.Auxilly Dress, my Glitterrings ring, and my Just Fab Heels and Clutch, (all sponsored for my event) I felt like this was a dream. Not real. No way! Stepping inside, I was taken aback as I was only 30 ish minutes into 8 and the room was jam-packed! Friends from NY, Florida, The Bay Area , and all throughout southern California, immensely overwhelmed with emotions… I cried once.
Making it through the entire room and finally to the bar, I cried again. Seeing faces from Facebook, Twitter, my blog, and those I have been meaning to reconnect with was amazing! The night was spent celebrating, drinking (I had a fabulous signature drink called “The Curvy”), taking photos, and raffling off the fabulous door prizes from GHD, Temptu, Clarisonic, Triple H Experience, Sorella Swim, Rachel Pally, Just Fab, and Philippe Matignon Hosiery!
The guests took home fabulous gift bags sponsored by 365 Hangers, including fun items from Milani Cosmetics, Charlie’s Brownies, Queen Grace, Rachel Pally, Simply Be, Glitterrings, Philippe Matignon, Eden Jewelry, Purple Diva Designs, and Beautiful Curls!
Here are a few (of the 280+ photos) for you to take a gander at!
