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. Zelie for She –  If you’re looking for the pieces that NO ONE will have when you walk through the door, Zelie for She is the place to look! So many different collections to choose from!





  1. Asos–  I truly couldn’t help the post more than 3 picks for Asos because their pieces range from modest to chic! If you are stuck on what to buy for the gala, Asos has got you covered!

  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!







  1. Jibri–  Jibri is an indie designer that I’ve grown to love over my blogging years! Ms. Elder brings out happy feelings on a gloomy day with her pieces!
