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

Good morning beautiful people,

I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July celebrations and ate tons of cookout food….I had a pretty low key day. My family and I celebrated with friends as we do every year and finished the day of with fireworks that were incredible. 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.

As always thank you for stopping by…. Have a glammy good day……

Happy Monday,

Hope everyone had a great weekend. My weekend was busy as usual. I enjoyed the company of my girlfriends, wine & laughs on Friday night. It was the perfect prelude to a great weekend & just what I needed after the long work week. I dedicated my time to my hubby & daughters on Saturday. We had the best time just enjoying the weather, eating & shopping.

I spent Sunday with my wonderful Dad. I’m so blessed to have such an encouraging, supportive father. I don’t think it was until I was an adult that I really realized that I was so very lucky to have a father that was fully engaged in raising me & my siblings & was there for us for everything. Good & bad. But more importantly set the bar for how you are to treat a woman ( your wife)
That was something that I saw daily with how he interacted with my mommy.
Thank you daddy for all of the life lessons & loving me unconditionally………

Happy Monday Glam Dolls,

I hope everyone’s weekend was great. I had a lot of time to relax & spend time with my daughters. yesterday my girlfriend and I went to eat lunch at Carrabbas. I received an invite from them to come for a complimentary lunch to taste some upcoming dishes they will be adding to their menu. Everything was incredible. I enjoyed everything from the appetizers to the dessert. Did I mention this is one of my favorite restaurants….. I have been eating there for years and I literally order the same entree every time. So it was really nice to sample other options that they have to offer. I wore this oh so comfy thrift store buy. The so I thought, red dress. I had this dress for at least 6 months. When my cousins were here to visit I showed one of my cousins the dress and referred to it as being red. She said you must be color blind because this dress clearly is orange. When I took a closer look, I realized it was more orange than red. So I refer to it as the orange red dress now. What color does it look like to y’all?

It’s not the size; It’s fit

I don’t know why we as women get so caught up in size and when we have to veer away from the usual size that we wear and its such a hard thing to do.Well let me rephrase that.When we have to get a size bigger it’s a problem.I’m not judging because I was in that number also. But I came to the realization that it’s not size, it’s fit. No one will know what the tag says on the inside of your shirt, dress or pants. If they do happen to catch a glimpse- so what………what matters is if it fits well and looks good.

Have any of you felt some kind of way when you had to make a purchase in a size larger than what you normally wear?

Not so matchy matchy

Today when I walked in the office my play play brother told me “sis you dont match” so I began to explain to him that it’s not about matching, its about your pieces relating to one another and actually for the most part I try to stay away from being too matchy matchy.Sometimes when I’m out and about and I see young ladies that match their outfit to the T with their shoes their handbag and jewelry. I want to cringe. Some even go as far as matching their makeup.lol……But of course my brother didn’t grasp the concept. So I just gave up on the explanation. One thing about my personal style is I like to have a pulled together look and not necessarily matching, but again as long as the color choices I use relate to one another in some way.

This is my not so matchy matchy look……
