Happy FattiesLove Tuesdays!

After a long week of events, I had a lot of time to sit and reflect on something I never talk about: ACCESSORIES!

We all know that a simple accessory can make or break an outfit! All too often we are bombarded with accessories that great for one night, turn colors on you after a second wear, or are unoriginal. Today I wanted to share some great indie designers that feature handmade accessories that will definitely give you a bang for your buck!

Disclaimer: All of these places I’ve bought from or can attest to their quality!

Back in 2013, Izzy of the thicky chicky  introduced me to Earjeans and ever since then I’ve been a fan!!! Earjeans is a handmade fashion jewelry company started in 2008 by Tasha LaRae.  The jewelry designs featured use a combination of traditional jewelry components (beads, gemstones, metals) and non-traditional jewelry components (fabrics, leather, paper, etc). Earjeans is a privately owned on-line retailer based in Atlanta, GA.

Check out some of Earjeans pieces!! I promise you, they will last a very long time!!!

Happy Hump Day!

I just got back from vacation and boy let me tell ya, I had an amazing time! I can’t wait to recap pictures and show you what awesome outfits I put together.

But before I get any further, I would like to introduce an event that is near and dear to my heart! BOSTON CURVY FASHION WEEK!

Offical-Website-Logo-July-23-26-2015

 

THE CURVES ARE COMING! THE CURVES ARE COMING! WE OUR HONORED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE 1ST ANNUAL BOSTON CURVY FASHION WEEK WILL BE TAKING PLACE IN JULY OF 2015!

The mission for Boston Curvy Fashion Week is to promote the curvy/plus size fashion industry (sizes 12+) in a mainstream way. We’ll be providing fashion entertainment, business education to help fashion businesses work smarter, and healthy curves education to the plus size community!

Boston Curvy Fashion Week (#BCFWeek) is a 4 day event taking place the historic City of Boston,MA. This event will be the first of its kind here in Massachusetts, celebrating curvy/plus size women sizes 12 & up. This week will have a runway show, special guest appearances, networking opportunities, workshops, shopping, swag bags, and much more. Spread the word and tell all your friends that the curves are coming and Boston Curvy Fashion Week 2015 will soon be here!

Not only am I from Boston, but I am on the board for the momentous event! Now, I know what you’re thinking “She probably chose to work on the fashion committee.” NOPE! This year, my focus was different! I wanted to shine light on health! I wanted to make sure that women knew that they could be confident and fashionable in their curves…but be healthy too! After all, what’s the purpose of having a dope ass tummy and wide ass hips if you aren’t keeping your health in order?

But enough about my involvement, I would rather show you (if you are able to come)! Here’s the line up of the Boston Curvy Fashion Week events:

Over the next two weeks, I will be highlighting all the events that will be happening taking place during the course of Boston Curvy Fashion Week.

For now, please follow Boston Curvy Fashion Week on all our social channels and who know’s maybe I will be having a give away to some events!! Stay tuned!
