Happy Friday Darling Divas!

I am back again with yet another OOTD post, and I am excited because it features one of my favorite t-shirts that I have been DYING to wear since I purchased it! That’s So Raven was my favorite show growing up and provided me with so much representation and inspiration. I also have often been told that I look a lot like Raven Symone, so that’s also always a plus! When I first laid eyes on this shirt I knew I had to have it, and knew that it would be a hit when I finally was able to wear it! I decided to take it for a spin at my Godson’s first bday party last weekend I was and feeling all my Raven Symone feels!

Happy Humpday Darling Divas!

Let me first start this blog post off by saying happy pride to all my Darling Divas/o that are celebrating this month. You all so beautifully live out loud all year round, but June is your month to shine and I hope you have been enjoying it thus far! This week I am back with another fun and fabulous OOTD that I am so excited to share! This past Saturday I went to Sesame Place for my niece’s 2nd b-day, and I thought it was the perfect occasion to break out this fabulous skirt that I got from Ashley Stewart’s Curvy Girl Pride Collection! I have always loved the rainbow, so when I snagged my hands on this skirt I was one happy camper! As an Ally to the LGBTQIA+ community recognizing and celebrating Pride is always a big deal for me, so I’m glad to see that brands like Ashley Stewart have joined in on the celebration! Most of the collection is now sold out, but click here to check out what they may have left!

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! If you want to check out my swag bag haul and my Insta-story of Curvycon, then click here to go to my IG page and check out my highlights!  If you want to check out all my other CurvyCon videos, click here to watch the playlist.  Interested in seeing all the panels and the fashion shows? Click here and scroll down to see the Yahoo Style Livestream!

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!
