So just a few months ago I announced I would be in attendance at The Curvy Fashionista Style Expo. After much anticipation, this past weekend that time arrived! Let me tell all ya’ll who did not attend: ALL THAT ANTICIPATION WAS WORTH IT!
Never have I been in a room full of body positive, beautiful, curvy, round, box shaped, empowered and confident women. No matter what shape or size these ladies came to slay and slay they did!
The expo included a Blogger Brunch both days which included Q&A sessions with the blogger mavens themselves!
Natasha Eubanks of The YBF came through to offer all of us gems on how to be more intentional in the branding of ourselves. She shared her amazing story of successfully becoming the blog and business connoisseur she is today.
Marie was so sweet ya’ll she didn’t even care that I practically behaved like a super fan when I met her!
There was something for everyone! Panels for body positivity, panels for models, Big & Tall Fashion and vendors too! Anybody who was there to learn surely had no shortage of education available to them.
The expo was full of notable businesses such as Ashley Stewart’s and Rebdolls; but also included various vendors from all over including those who were just premiering their lines.
The highlights for me were the fashion shows which included: Hanky Panky Ltd, Ashley Stewart’s, Dia & Co, and Mo Vaughn’s MVP Collection.
There was even two poetry performances to satiate the artistic side of me!
The Ultimate treat was watching the ladies of Pretty Big Movement grace us with their moves and inspiring us to move!
I mixed and mingled and networked with the cream of the crop in plus size blogging and branding and I walked away with so much more insight than I imagined I would. I am here for all this fabulocity that The Curvy Fashionista brought to us for her 3rd annual expo; and now I can’t wait for next year’s expo which I know will be even better!
