Wooo!! It’s been one long, exhausting, but incredibly exciting and fulfilling week. I arrived home this afternoon from attending Full Figured Fashion Week, and I’m just now getting to go through all of the pictures I took from the events. It was a GREAT week. Living in North Carolina, I do not have opportunities to talk in person with other bloggers, brands, or plus-size fashion enthusiasts, so FFFWeek is really my only chance to be with these people, and I crammed in as much as I could into the week. Monday started off the festivities with a Denim and Diamonds party. It was held at The Stellan, which was an intimate restaurant/bar that had the perfect amount of space for a little bit of dancing and a lot of space for mingling and chatting. I wrote about the Denim and Diamond party for Evans with additional pictures, so please check out that blog post here. Below are some other shots from the event.
My friend from home, Brittany, traveled with me to NYC for FFFWeek. She wore Kiyonna’s Smitten Lace Top, and you’ll see her popping up on the blog as I write about FFFWeek.
At the beginning of the party, we were able to meet some of those who were behind the FFFWeek events. This is Brittany with Sharon Quinn, who was the casting director for the events.
Us with Toy Monique, the Face of FFFWeek
Marie Denee, The Curvy Fashionista and Fashion Front leader
I loved getting to reconnect with Sam of Curvy Sam and Jennifer of Jasifer Lions Club.
And meeting Hanna of The Wardrobe Challenge and Dani of DIY Fatshion for the first time!
And talking with Mouna of Brussels Fatshion and Gaelle of The Curvy and Curly Closet
Plus model Sophie Sheppard
It wouldn’t be an FFFWeek post without some Olivia of Wait Until the Sunset in it 🙂
I had a great time talking with Sarah of SWAKDesigns. She is so sweet and passionate about plus size women and fashion.
I also was able to see the Sonsi team, who went above and beyond to make FFFWeek an enjoyable and welcoming week.
In fact, they gave me a sweet gift with Advil, Emergence-C, shoe cushions, a DryBar giftcard, and other goodies to help me through the fast-paced week.
What I wore: Evans Collection peplum top, Torrid skinny jeans, Avenue wedges, Eloquii belt, Cara Couture necklace
After the event, we headed to a pizza place where I got some type of chicken parmesan thing in between a garlic knot. YUM!
Stick around for more updates about FFFWeek. Day two covers the press event and the Curves for a Cure runway and silent auction.
