Before I continue with this post, please take a look this week’s “Outfit of the Week.” I chose a style that I will be featuring on the blog next week! Want to get a head start on the look? Click here.
So about two weekends again, I took another weekend trip to NYC for an eventful weekend. I didn’t get to blog/post everything that I wanted BUT I did get to snap a few pictures from my trip.
I attended Lane Bryant’s launch for their Plus is Equal campaign, in Times Square. With many headliners and the movers and shakers of the plus industry in attendance, we brought attention to the public letting them know that plus size women are equal to straight size women. Also, we wanted to demand that we see more representation of plus size women in different industries!
Here are some pictures from the event:
Essence Style Block Party
This is, by far, the dopest block party I’ve been to in YEARS!
Huffington Post says, ESSENCE, a media company dedicated to celebrating African-American women, hosted its 2nd annual Essence Street Style Block Party during New York Fashion Week. Fashion, food, and fun sums up the successful event. Event partners Chevrolet, SheaMoisture, and The Home Depot complimented guests with free items and prizes. Attendees especially enjoyed SheaMoisture’s beauty lounge which provided mini massages, skin care consultation, and hair styling.
Here’s some of my favorite looks:
