Happy Sunday all!
Last night I had the pleasure of attending my first Curvy Closets charity fashion show. Curvy Closets is the creation of Dominique Revere-Lincoln (CEO of Empress Lingerie) and blogger/plus model Collen Stovall. Their goal is to “bring the best of plus size fashion to Philadelphia…” On top of being a great fashion show, the event also raises money for a charity of their choice. This year over $2000 was raised for Hairless 4 Her Awareness, a non profit organization that is dedicated to promoting breast cancer awareness through community outreach. It was great to be apart of an event that celebrates our curves and gives back to the community.
The show featured designers BellaNOR Boutique, Sean Anthony Designs, Empress Lingerie, Kiyonna, KSY+, Elocin, Ace Blakley and the debut of September Plus Model Magazine cover girl & Curvy Closets hostess Allison McGevna’s new line Twenty Four 20. I gasped, ooohed and ahhhed and cheered the clothes coming down the runway. The models were fierce and made me want to buy everything I saw! Here’s a look at some of the amazing fashions from the night!
As an added bonus, I got to hang out with some of my favorite bloggers at the show. These ladies looked AMAZING and exuded so much positive energy!
If you’re wondering what I wore to the event well that’s a whole different story! I received a complimentary rental from Rent the Runway (they now offer plus sizes…woo hoo!) and when I went to put on the Carmen Marc Valvo dress I picked, it didn’t fit! YIKES! I totally went into panic mode and grabbed the first thing that I saw which was a dress that two years ago was baggy but now is TIGHT! Needless to say, I did not have a good fashion day! LOL
Despite my dress mishap, I had so much fun at the show. If you’re in the Philadelphia area next year, definitely check out Curvy Closets!
Have a wonderful day!
