Happy New Year!

Hi luvs! Sorry I’ve been away but I have two jobs that keep me VERY busy! Here’s some NYE slayage to hopefully last you until next time. I also included a video of my hair that my hair stylist took showing off his silk press techniques. Enjoy!

CRFW 5th Year Anniversary

When I first started blogging I mentioned my involvement with Curves Rock Fashion Weekend. A weekend which targets curvy women and brings the hottest designers to the DMV. During my tenure with CRFW I served as VIP Swag Bag Coordinator, and Executive Assistant to one of the two founders.

I learned a lot during my time, I learned the power and skill of negotiation, about working under pressure (I used to work in payroll but this was pressure of a different kind), and to MOVE QUICKLY!!! The fashion show which was always a sell out was so rewarding when we would see the packed seats. All the cold calling and follow-ups paid off!!!

Although it’s been about 2 years since my departure, the founders of CRFW invited me to be apart of their promo video celebrating their 5 year anniversary and I was honored and thrilled! It tickled me that the videographer caught me fixing my hair- I had no clue he was filming.

The video is out and I couldn’t be more pleased! I think I may need to start taking speaking engagements haha. For tickets to this year’s events, please visit CRFW.

p.s.- I’m at the 4:47 mark of the video. I wore a dress in XL by Thalia Sodi from Macys that was on sale for $25 and shoes from DSW. I wore accessories that I already had that matched perfectly. For my hair I actually wore a half wig.

 

  

Fitting Room Chronicals: F2F

I went shopping for a white dress for a boat ride memorial weekend. To recap, here’s what I wore the past two years:   

   Both dresses were from Fashion to Figure so I went back (not intentionally) this year. Here are the dresses I tried on:  
   Which do you think I ended up choosing? 

Work Out Style

So I went to the doctor yesterday and I put on like 10-15 lbs since my scale last worked. Even though I have a hair appt this morning I decided to wear workout clothes in attempt to make me feel better and help move my mindset in the right direction.             

                        Whether you’re working out or faking it till you make it- putting a little effort into your workout wear can motivate you and put some pep into your step!
