A bout a month and a half ago, a friend of mine told me to apply for a press pass for this dope event that was coming up. Curiosity led me to check out the link only to be pleasantly surprised to find it was for The Curvy Fashionista Style Expo. Now, I’ve been a blogger for a long while, but only recently really started incorporating my love of plus size fashion. I didn’t think I had a shot in hades but I figured why not?
After not hearing anything about it after a few weeks; I was a little disappointed but intended to attend anyway and cover it how I wanted to! This morning on the last day of my anniversary staycation; I was met by the most awesome email:
I wanna tell you that I played it cool. I really want to tell you that but it wouldn’t be the truth. I yelped, jumped up and down and my husband stared on with such an intense perplexity (he has since congratulated me and stated how proud he is).
This is a big deal to me because 1. I’ve always wanted to attend a Curvycon or Style Expo, which I have not been able to do…until now. 2. I’ve always wanted to cover these types of events and I never thought I could…but now I am. 3. I LOVE curvy fashion! I also love when the platforms are created for women like myself who don’t have typical bodies to have representation and options designed for us!
I am totally looking forward to networking, learning and enjoying all that is promised for this year’s expo. If you’re in the Atlanta area 7/28-7/29 2017 (or even if you’re not and you want to travel) I would encourage you to grab a ticket HERE.
I look forward to seeing you there!
