The Curvy Con 2017 Edition

This weekend was CurvyCon and I have to say it was the most fun I've had in a while! If you don't know what CurvyCon is, it's a convention for plus size women to shop, drink cocktails, and shop some more. Like every other convention, they had panels of different topics such as body positivity, being a girl boss, and an amazing "Dear Retailer" panel that had CEO's of 5 different retailers (Target, Lane Bryant, Dia&Co, Modcloth and Macy's)  that carried plus size options.

On day one Dia&Co hosted the most fabulous fashion show EVER! I was so happy to see the new collections that I didn't mind that I was standing all the way in the back. The brands that were featured are spectacular brands that are gonna change the plus size fashion world for seasons to come. The Molly&Isadora collection spoke to my inner Parisian girl that wanted to wear stripes, knee high socks, and oxfords shoes on a rainy fall day. But my favorite collection had to be the Girl With Curves collection that Tanesha Awasthi collaborated with Dia&Co!

Here's the live stream of the whole fashion show!


On day two there were many panels that I enjoyed and will be talking about on the podcast this week so stay tuned! My fave panel, of course, was the Girl Boss panel with Nicollette Mason, Gabi Gregg, Cece Olisa, and Chastity Garner Valentine. These babes are forever my favorite bloggers and I got to listen to them speak on how to start a business and believe you can do whatever your heart desires with time and patience.

 My OOTD's for both days were everything and I feel like they showed who I was. Unfortunately, I'm way too shy and didn't really interact with many bloggers. All my faves were in the same room and I couldn't handle it!

Style: Pink Leather Jacket



I love my pink leather jacket, it adds the perfect touch to any outfit! I paired it with another Deandri dress that I love, and spiked slip on sneakers.
 This Roselle dress actually fits me small. It cuts into my arm fat a little. I still kept it because I wear a leather jacket 99% of the time, and it wouldn't really bother me. I would Recommend sizing up in this dress if bat wings is a concern!

  This jacket is perfect to break up an outfit. Since I usually wear all black, this is a great way to add a little color without going all crazy! They're usually super hard to find in plus size and thank the Forever21 gods that they had one! I Swear Forever21 has everything a trendsetter needs.
  My slip on's are from Hot Topic. They're super old and broke after I made this blog post! They were awesome and a legendary pair in my wardrobe.

Style: All black everything.



  I recently I got this dress from Deandri. It's the softest, most comfortable dress ever! It's made out of cotton and it's the perfect basic in any closet! Pair it with your favorite accessories and shoes! Of course, I could've paired my dress with cute shoes, but I love my beat up, Dr. Martens. They're comfortable and go with all my outfits! 
  Pair this dress with without stockings, booties, and a statement necklace!
It has the perfect Wednesday Adams vibe that we all love!
I liked this dress because it doesn't have the white collar. Do you wash it with whites? Do you wash it with darks? The guessing game is over!

Style: I love Alternative fashion!

I grew up being that emo kid with red acid wash jeans and a band t-shirt. I've dyed my hair every color under the rainbow. My style changes every so often, but I always end up with a grungy style! Before I started college I had pink hair. I have to admit it wasn't a pretty pink. It was a Ronald McDonald red/pink. When I started college I convinced myself that I needed to be an adult. So I dyed my hair black and did a total change. That's where this look came into play! 

I wore dresses for a whole year! I didn't wear pants for a year! How crazy is that? Like I said, I will probably always gravitate towards alternative fashion with a girly twist. I feel like that's my style. An adult emo that loves glitter!

The Main focus of the post was supposed to be the boots! They're called the Demonia Assault boot!  They're so comfortable and I love how I can style them with leggings and a long shirt or I can style them with a dress! They're pretty easy to walk in and they're an affordable version of the UNIF Choke boot! I got these boots from Hot Topic ( I know the emo safe haven!) They were 98$ and totally worth it! I don't know many alternative, LatinX, plus size ladies. Why not be the start?

Style: The Ultimate Sin. Pencil skirts.

Pencil skirts sometimes scare me. They're too long and I look stumpy. They're too tight and I feel like I'm dying. Find the right pencil skirt and you can rule the world! I understand the fear of having your belly outline showing.

Everyone has seen this meme, and honestly who cares! A belly outline is no big deal and whoever makes a big deal about it is an asshole. It's how my body is shaped. It's how my body looks! Yes, shapewear is an option, but it's just too annoying to deal with and it hurts. I would rather leave it hanging and have a grand old time than have it all squished and I can't eat! (and you know how I like to eat!) Wear that pencil skirt and be a Queen! 
   I styled this plaid skirt with a black blouse, but you can swap it for a white blouse and a blazer for a work look. You can also swap the dramatic glitter boots with cute  Mary janes and add leggings!



Get the boots soon! Sizes are limited!
