The next notch on her belt?
Last year, in 2009, Whitney Thompson teamed up with a friend to launch SUPERMODEL: a line of soy Massage Oil Candles including scents with names like “Boyfriend’s Shirt,” and a line of affordable jewelry with a portion of proceeds donated to NEDA. I had the pleasure of chatting with her during New York Full Figured Fashion Week about her collection, and after checking it out, I had to share this with you!
Her jewelry collection features four lines, catering to each personality ranging from sophisticated earrings to intricate necklaces. Everything is priced under $100, so every woman can “afford to look and feel like a Supermodel.”
Dakota Lee– This collection has a laid back, beachy feel. Leah Thompson crafts this jewelry line with raw stones and distinctive chains. Every Dakota Lee piece comes in real silver or gold plate, and each stone is a unique, natural work of art.
Best Friends– This line has been created especially for our frugal fashionistas. The materials are not as extravagant as our other collections, but this collection offers our trendiest designs- all under $20!
Haute Couture– One of a kind: Literally. We travel the world to find rare pieces that we destroy and revive into beautiful new creations. Be sure to check the website regularly for limited-edition designs.
Supermodel by Whitney Thompson- This is an ultra-glam collection of extreme fashion in gold and silver. Supermodel pieces embody the ultimate girly girl and are red carpet-ready.
The SUPERMODEL candle collection is just as fun! With a dual functionality (a candle AND massage oil) when lit, the wax becomes a scented massage oil! In nine scents, there is sure to be a favorite amongst them!
This full figured and fabulous woman is on a mission to inspire, create, and motivate and I MUST commend her for her grind!
