Get ready ladies! We’re just a few hours away from the 9th annual Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFWeek)! A week where us curvy women take New York by storm and show them how it’s done! A week when the who’s who of the plus industry comes together to celebrate themselves and each other. Every day of the week there are events specifically created for the plus size community, that take place all over NYC!

It truly is a whirlwind of fun, fashion, and friends! Never a dull moment, FFFWeek has been bringing it and we have been in the house to support, volunteer, or attend- save one year! And with the event kicking off yesterday, I had to do a quick roundup of what you’d be missing, if you do not get your tickets! So, here 9 things I’m looking forward to for Full Figured Fashion Week!
