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!

CurvyCon Vlog 17!

That fabulous day of the year has finally arrived.. THE CURVY CON!! I really wait all year long for CurvyCon to come, and I am glad that the weekend finally came. The vlog is a pretty long one, so grab a snack, and come along with me on my Curvy Con 2017 journey!

I keep thinking that CurvyCon cant get any better, and ever year it honestly GET SO MUCH BETTER! Let’s first start off with the fact that CurvyCon is now durring New York Fashion Week. How amazing is that?? This plus size fashion event happened durring the biggest moment in fashion. I felt very excited to be apart of this momumental event. 
CurvyCon Day 1
September 8th,2017
CurvyCon started off with a workout sesson sponsered by Target, and led by fitness guru Massy. Arias. I unfortunatly didnt attend, but I heard it was a great time! I did a little workout on my own, and then questioned my milk status. ( lol) After that it was a Sip and Shop which I actually did attend, and it was amazing! So many beauitufl women, and what I liked was that it wasnt all the same vendors from last year. It was some that are always there like Fashion to Figure, and some new booth’s like Romans! 
( I took this cute pic at the Romans booth! I had such a blast with them!)

My Look for Day 1! 
 ( more info on my look will be featured in my Get Ready With Me video that is dropping at 5PM today!)
I did a little shopping and sipping, and after that it was time for THE FIRST EVER CURVY CON FASHION SHOW! What was even better about was the fact that it was a DIA & CO fashion show! I was defnitly a proud Dia&Co employee this whole weekend. The following pictures ARE NOT MINE. I grabbed them from this wonderful article written about this fashion show on Mic. Com.
