I was invited to a fashion show Saturday evening that literally opened my eyes. The Curves R My Movement Fashion Show proved that women with curves are on the rise, and they can style and get in formation just like any other lady. Go girls!
Under the direction of Ashley Cherry (Instagram - @curvesrmymovement_ceo), Curves R My Movement was created to celebrate and empower our thick sisters. The fashion show was very entertaining because it demonstrated just how versatile fashion is. There are a lot of fashion myths that apply to curvy girls such as they should only wear the color black because it slims, or long skirts and dresses look best on their figure, but this fashion show proved that those myths are no longer valid.
Pictured above was the host of the event - celebrity plus size model Rosie Mercado. I love her dress!
My girl Georgette ripped the runway during this show, and she killed it!!!
These ladies showed up and showed out! Confidence is everything! It's not about what you are wearing, it's about how you are wearing it. What is on the inside translates to the outside.
The designers that were featured in the pictures above are Rain Wear (cocotwist.com), Fashionista Boutique (www.fashion-i-sta.com), F.A.T - Fashionable and Thick (www.fashionableandthick.net), and Dzire Boutique (www.dzireboutique.com).
Above is what I wore to the event. I decided to go with my favorite black jeans, a dress that I wore as a blouse and my Steve Madden COMFORTABLE heels. I could have gone another 10 hours in those shoes!
Where are all my thick-fine women at???!! It's your time to shine!
