FFFWeek Day Two: Curves For A Cure Benefit Runway
New to the FFFWeek schedule was a fundraising event that had a celebrity runway show and silent auction to benefit breast cancer awareness. I thought this was an excellent event to add to the week, as it allowed those participating in FFFWeek to give back through fashion, whether that be donation, silent auction, or ticket sales. The lovely team at Kiyonna sent me their beautiful Linden Lace Top to wear to the event, and I felt SO GOOD in it. I love finding those clothing items that just make you feel amazing as soon as you put it on, and this top definitely fit the bill in celebrating curves for the night.
The event showcased various celebrities in the plus size community in donated looks from brands such as Lane Bryant and SWAKDesigns among others. Celebrities included Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista, Gwen DeVoe – creator of FFFWeek, Lizzie Miller, Madeline Jones from Plus Model Magazine, Lucille O’Neal, Sharon Quinn, Rosie Mercado and others. All of the looks incorporated Breast Cancer Awareness color of pink and were later held for a silent auction. This was a really fun runway because it was all about celebrating women and having a good time while doing it.

Olivia of Wait Until the Sunset, Aisha of Fat in the City, and me — I had only met Aisha earlier that day, but you wouldn’t have guessed that. She was so much fun to talk to and she’s doing some interesting work in the plus size fashion world and fat activism world. Be sure to check her out (and Olivia too, of course, but I’m hoping that you know and love Olivia by now since I’ve linked to her many times over the years).
I felt super sexy in this outfit, and that’s not a feeling that I have often. I can feel pretty, etc, but sexy is a whole nother attitude.
What I wore: Kiyonna Linden Lace Top, ASOS Jersey Pencil Skirt, Avenue Black Wedges
