These pics are super dark. Forgive the lighting. Yall like my dress, though? It’s from Forever 21 and so is the necklace. I shop there so much that I think I should just start working there. Ha.

Fashion Blogger Meet & Greet

Before I get into all the fabulous pictures and my beat face and the event, I want to stop and thank Summiyah for inviting me to Atlanta to run a photo shoot (photos coming soon)! We talked back and forth for over six weeks trying to come up with ideas and concepts. She said, “Let’s do ragin’ turbans!”

My reply, “Let’s do it. When and where?”

So, thanks so much for allowing me to create, showcase my talents, and merge them with your own.

*Muah 🙂

I want to give a large shout out to my husband for making it possible for me to travel. He also helped behind the scenes. He ironed model’s clothes and he set up equipment. Thanks bae!

I also styled him. You like his vintage shirt?

A few friends and fans came to meet me.

20150321_185840

Yes. My face is huge, but beat. And my Susu came to see me. She is a local designer in the Atlanta area.

Another fan and local designer. Thanks for coming out.

I was in love with my goth chic outfit for that evening. The dress is from Forever 21 and I paired it with a lace up boot and a turban.

I found some style stars in the building.

(Right) Haute Hijabis in the building.

I loved this model’s sheer paneled top. She said it was originally lingerie but she wore it as a top. Stylish creativity at its best.

I was invited to the launch and fashion show of Ashley Stewart’s new Signature Style Line.

Curvy model, Tiffany, rocks pieces from the new collection. The pop of colors are a nice way to dress business chic without using the traditional black and grays.

This another one of my favorite looks. Curvy model, Liza, works her black and white dress, adds a belt and handbag with a hint of red and gold. And her heels were killer. Werk, Liza.

I remember being a girl very much so into fashion and going to stores where they had a small, tiny sections for plus-size women all the way in the back of the store or near the furniture, in the basement. No effort was put into the style of the mannequins. No bright colors or bold prints. The spaces were drab and dull. But the straight-size section was up front. Colors and racks upon racks of choices. A true stylista’s playground. For a little girl who was a size 16 at 13 years old, how do you think that made me feel? How many of us has had to take the walk of shame to the plus-size section and settle? So, I bought a pair of jeans that were three sizes too small. My “fitspo” jeans. If I could starve myself enough to get into those jeans, shop in the straight-size section, then and only then would my worth align. Worth hadn’t belong to fatties like me. Or that’s what society had brainwashed me to believe. Although we have a long way to go, I’m so glad there are a retailers out there that I can actually fit my wide size 24 thighs into these @warpweftworld jeans and top comfortably. Have you ever bought too small clothes for motivation to lose weight? What size were you when you were little? Any body can chime in. Let’s chat.
