Dangerous Curves Fashion Show

20120722-222535.jpg

Happy Monday,

I was invited to a fashion show over the weekend for full figured models. Karen “THE VOICE” Washington is a personal friend of mine and also the fashion show coordinator & commentator, so there was no doubt that i would be there to support her and the dangerous curves models. It was so uplifting to see these curvy ladies strutting their stuff down the runway with poise & confidence. It reaffirmed that you can be hot & glamourous at any size with confidence being one of the main components. The best part was the after party where I had the opportunity to connect with some of the models and commend them on the great example they are setting for curvy chicks everywhere.

Here a few pics from the show, after party, & the after after party where me & my girls decided to go out and finish our night out strong………enjoy

Fix it or flaunt it

20120716-193143.jpg

Good morning glammy gals,

Lately I have been thinking about the next step after extreme weight loss. The next step to me would be cosmetic surgery. It’s so ironic how you tuck away one set of insecurities for another. While I’m extremely grateful that I lost a lot of weight and kept it off, I find it hard to enjoy the new healthy slimmer body that I have. Many won’t understand this if you haven’t been through this, but once you lose the weight, you want your body to look just as good under the clothes as it does in clothes. A temporary fix of course is to wear clothing that will camaflauge that area. But after a while it gets quite boring to target the same type pieces to accommodate a less than perfect area of the body. So while I will flaunt it for now, I plan on doing my research and eventually fixing it with a tummy tuck.

Chime in glammy gals. what are your thoughts on cosmetic surgery….? Are you for it or against it?

Good Morning All,

So I went back to work yesterday after coming back from an almost two week vacation and let me just say I wish I took more time off. It was nice to see everyone that I missed, but I could and should have taken another week…..on another note, I decided to rock my striped bolero style blazer with my blue high waisted pants. It still takes courage for me to wear things tucked in that show off my mid section. But my friend Kim made me feel at ease about my pants and told me they actually showed how small my waist was and distracted from my stomach. Being in New Orleans and doing so much walking was a wake up call that I am so out of shape. So I plan on working on a walking regiment to get in shape. It was no fun waking up each morning with an aching lower back and legs feeling like they were going to buckle with each step. I’m sure as time goes on and I’m consistent I can actually tighten my legs up too. So we shall see..

As always thank you for following the skinnyphatglammygal

Essence Music Festival 2012

20120710-195717.jpg

I went to the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans over the weekend & had a blast. I don’t even know where to begin. The food was fantastic, the lineup for all of the shows was on point, and I probably lost about 5 pounds from all of the walking that I did. It was beautiful to see the range of style walking through the streets. From maxi dresses and skirts to distressed Jean shorts with cropped tops. The downside to my trip is that long time friendships have been compromised and it may be to a point of no return. I think sometimes you grow up & grow apart and that was apparent to me over the weekend. Any who……despite the arguments and disagreements amongst friends, New Orleans was a great experience and I plan to go again next year. I did want to share with yall a few pictures I took on the trip…………enjoy………..

I’m heading out to New Orleans for the essence music festival and I’m super excited. This will be my first time going and I’m looking forward to a great time with my girlfriends. I will take tons of pictures and share my experience with you.
