HAUTE Curves

I am proud to announce that Elite Curves International will be holding the first HAUTE Curves, LA Fashion Week on October 13th of this year! This groundbreaking plus size fashion show will be held during LA Fashion Week.  Curvy divas can experience an entire event dedicated to independent designers that cater to your size (12 and up.) What a positive experience it will be to see models showcasing the hottest trends that actually look like me and you, instead of striving for a form of beauty that seems so out of reach.

Celebrate curves while giving to a deserving cause. ECI has partnered with Michelle’s Place, an LA based charity which helps women with breast cancer receive emotional and educational support and facilitates breast healthcare services. A curvy diva always remembers to give back to the community, plus a little good karma never hurts.

NEON – Summer’s Hottest Trends

You’ll shimmer and shine as you jet set to tropical paradise or strut your stuff at the local swimming hole if you include some neon in your wardrobe. Adding a piece of neon to your threads is an easy way to show off one of this summer’s hottest fashion trend.
Spice up your outfit by replacing one dull colored piece with a pop of neon.  You can rock brightly colored pumps with a black dress or add a loud handbag to a normally soft outfit.  I like to add brightly colored skinny jeans with a black top and black flats or I opt for a color block highlighting a neon tone.
One Stop Plus is a great online site to find an array of neon pieces and accessories. OneStopPlus.com is an online fashion mall for sizes 12W-44W that offers the hottest trends in curvy styles at affordable prices.  OSP offers designers like Kiyonna, IGIGI, Sydney’s Closet and Torrid.
Editorial Director of OneStopPlus.com, Nancy LeWinter says “I like to encourage curvy girls to rock bold colors – this season’s favorites include coral, hot pink and yellow.” Take LeWinter’s fashion advice and branch out from your normal dull duds and embrace some haute hues this season.
LeWinter encourages those shy curvy fashionistas to dip their toes into the shallow end.  “A neon top, skirt or handbag combined with a more neutral or subtle item is a great combination and will make your summer ensemble pop!” says LeWinter.

Reah Norman reviews FFF Week 2012!

Full-Figured Fashion Week 2012 has come and gone in what seems like a blink, leaving me with such an exhilarating high that it’s taken a few weeks to come down!

FFF Week is one of the only times of year that the plus size industry and community come together under one roof to celebrate our common bond- plus size fashion. It was amazing to see my friends and colleagues that I work with on a regular basis, and also to come face to face with brand representatives, designers, bloggers, and industry professionals that I only get to converse with virtually through social media.

This year I had the opportunity to attend NYC FFF Week to represent Sorella Swim and attend all of the events on their behalf, as well as style their portion of the runway showcase.

Aside from three amazing fashion shows, the 4-day event was jam-packed with a press event, industry mixer, blogger conferences, a sunset cruise, shopping event, and panel discussions.

Here is a recap of all the event highlights!

DAY 1

The week was kicked off with an invitation only Press Event, where press from all around the world came together to meet and interview the designers and industry professionals who participating in the fashion showcases. I was on hand with Dorothy Combs model, Emily Nolan, to represent Sorella Swim and chat with all the press about the line.

“Curves at Sea” FFF Week’s All White Cruise

Curves at Sea, an All White Sunset Cruise will set sail on Wednesday, June 13th at 8:00 pm off the coast of New York in honor of Full Figured Fashion week.  Don’t come a knocking if the curves are a rocking while the divaliscious plus sized attendees take in the Big and Tall Male Fashion Showcase.

A white party is the perfect place to let your fashion flag fly. Limiting yourself to one color does not mean that you have to limit your style. I have picked out some of my favorite white hot looks for this summer.  With my help you can make any party sizzle.

My first look is a casual alternative look that can easily be played up by adding a bold colored pair of pumps and some blingy earrings.  I have paired an Isobel Crochet Off the Shoulder Top by Lane Bryant ($31-$46) paired with Curvy Fit Cropped Skinny Leg Jeans by Eloquii ($70).
