Happy Wednesday All!

I know it seems like I disappeared off the face of the earth, but no worries I am back. Balancing a career, being a professional student, and attempting to keep a social life isn’t the easiest thing to do. But hey, I am 26 yrs old, I think I need to start getting used to it.

During my attempt to salvage the little bit of social life I have, I convinced my friends to come to Boston’s Ebony Gala 2014. This annual event is held by National Society of Black Engineers brings together young professionals from all backgrounds for a night a food, fun, and finesse! Looking at the pictures from last year truly inspired me to do a post on some options for us curvy ladies looking to show out for this year’s gala!

Below are my top 5 picks for this year’s EBONY GALA!!

 

  1. Monif C–  If you are looking to make a statement and define your curves every step of the way, then this is the spot to go! Here are my top three dresses from Monif C.

  1. Rum and Coke –  NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT A NEW COLLECTION! Rum and Coke just launched a new collection a few days ago and it is OFF THE WALL! Typically I would look at a few collections from other designers and see my “hit or misses” but EVERY SINGLE PIECE IN RUM AND COKE’s collection is a HIT!
