Wednesday, I spent the day soaking up some good plus size fashion.
Full Figured Fashion Week (FFF Week hereafter) started Monday, but my first day of events was yesterday.
So, yesterday morning, I headed into the city to attend a seminar on social media. It covered how to work it and how to make it work for you: approaching brands and how to build your own brand.
It was hosted by Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista, and the panel included some top brands and bloggers in the game:
It was highly informative, and I will be using what I learned to make this blog even better for y’all. 🙂
The shoe catastrophe happened on the way to the venue.
So I’m walking down the block in a pair of espadrilles I’ve had for years. As I get to the building, I hear a soft, but still audible, rip. I pause.
I’ll mention here I had to come through a construction site to get to the venue.
Now, I’m thinking I have ripped my dress. I start to panic and feel myself up on the pavement, checking for skin showing that ought not be. Nothing. Hmm, odd. Maybe it wasn’t me.
I take a step and feel a “flop” against my heel.
These are not flip flops I had on. These were heels. I look down.
Damn it. Sigh. 😦 I love these shoes, but the left one was completely wrecked. Luckily, I had a pair of actual flip flops in my bag. After the seminar, I decided to stop and pick up some glue to repair my shoe. I then got a good look at the right one. It’s starting to come apart too! Unbelievable.
The heat yesterday would not have allowed the glue to set properly, and I had another event to get to. So what did I do instead?
I stopped by Payless and got some new shoes:
I wanted them in this cool aqua, but they didn’t have my size. 😦 Neutral worked just as well. With new shoes on, I headed to my second event: Curves Rule Everything Around Me (CREAM) Pop Up Shop. Presented by Nicole Grier of Feminine Funk. It was hosted by Chante of Everything Curvy and Chic and Peggy of On the Q Train. It was an evening of shopping, food, and drinks:
I had the honor of meeting the owner of Black Sheep Cosmetics, and I was her very first customer! The whole crew was super sweet, and I can’t wait to show off the blue lipstick I purchased.
Tonight is the Curves in the City trunk show, and I am excited to wear an outfit that scares me to death but looks good at the same time.
No spoilers! Unless you follow me on Instagram. 🙂
See you tomorrow!
