CurvyCon 18 Vlog

Hey Darling Divas!

It’s another week on the blog, and this time around we are talking all about CurvyCon 2018!!! CurvyCon is an event that I look forward to every year, and this year was no different. There was a different venue, more shopping, workshops, and so many new things to do and see. So grab your popcorn and let’s see what CurvyCon2018 was like!

Did you enjoy? I hope so! Dia&Co was the sponsor again for the event, so as an employee of the company I was soo proud for another year!

I didn’t do a lot of shopping at CurvyCon this year, but there were so many amazing vendors! I think I was just a bit overwhelmed by all the shopping options in once place, but next year I will be ready (lol) Here’s a list of all the vendors.

My CurvyCon Looks! 
This year I wanted to definitely make a statement, so when I saw this green wig in It’s My Raye Raye’s video I just knew it would be perfect for CurvyCon. It was bold, it was a conversation starter, and I just really felt like one of a kind!

The theme for the weekend was “Cosmo and Wanda you ain’t slick” I wanted all my looks to have some type of pink and green in it, and it was so fun being creative and coming up with some bold, yet comfortable, looks.

Day 1
The first day was the platinum party, so I wanted to be super cute but not overly dressy. This look was so New York Chic to me, and the heels kept me comfy and fabulous all night long

Dress: Ashley Stewart
Blazer: JCPenney
Shoes: Lane Bryant
Purse: Dia&Co
   
 

Day 2 

Workout Look

I wanted something that still was within my color scheme for the weekend, so when I saw this set from Ashley Stewart I just knew t was the one! 
  Bottoms, Jacket, Bra: Ashley Stewart
Bandana: Walmart
Sneaker: Nike

Glam Look
I just want to shout out my Aunt Tracy for letting me borrow this two-piece set from her closet.  It actually was the inspo for the whole color scheme, and I felt like such a fashionista in this look. I am a sucker for two-piece sets, and as soon as I got my hands on it, I just knew it would be perfect for CurvyCon. 

Jacket&Shorts: LaneBryant
Shoes: Ashley Stewart
Purse: Custom made by my best friend, Asha! Follow her on IG( Ashaetch) to get updates on when she will start selling them  

Day 3 
This day was more relaxed, so I wanted to be cute and comfortable.  This look was my kind of casual, and I was seriously so comfortable all day long!

Top: Ashley Stewart
Jacket: Ashley Stewart
Skirt: Eloquii ( Via Dia&Co)
Sneakers: Target 
Purse: Custom made my Ashby Vose! Check out her Etsy store for more of her fabulous bags! 

 Overall my curvycon experience this year was terrific! I had a great time meeting new friends, reconnecting with old friends, and I just enjoyed being at a fashion event just for gals like me during fashion week. The verdict is still out if I will attend next year since I am a CurvyCon OG, but I’m pretty sure I will still make it there in the end since I can’t ever stay away! After all, next year will be the 5th year of the event, so I can’t even imagine how big it will be! Did you go to CurvyCon this year? Leave a comment below and tell me your experience!

How Nominusplus Stand’s Tall

Hey there Darling Divas!

I know that we haven’t officially spoken on the blog/Youtube since May, but we are finally back up here with a new video, and its worth the wait! Today I am trying on and giving my thoughts on the new Stand Tall Collection from Ashley Stewart! As a plus size tall gal’, I was very excited when I first heard the news of this launch via Instagram. I was then even more pumped when I heard that a tall, curvy woman by the name of Kym Hampton was going to be co-creating it! Talk about tall, curvy girls looking out. So sit back, grab a snack, and let’s see how NoMinusPlus Stands Tall!

Did you enjoy the video? I hope so. I am little rusty so bear with me on the visuals lol. Overall I give the Stand Tall collection a 10 ACROSS THE BOARD! They fit well, were made with care, and flattered my curves. I also love that the line is affordable, and will fit any tall diva’s budget. So if your plus size and tall like myself, head on over to Ashley Stewart and stand tall!
