As you can see, none of us are going to be attending Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. (Pause) *Cries eyes out* So kidding. Although some of us are slightly disgruntled to not be apart of the shows, street style, and glam after-parties with mega supermodels, we decided to have our own little NWFW inspired shoot in none other but the D!

So, JB (with the fur) came up with an idea. Let’s play in clothes (what we usually do anyway) and come up with what we’d wear if we were going to attend NYFW. Genius idea. And how can I deny a photoshoot with the baes 🙂

Our goal here was to fake laugh, which turned into full blown cackles, witch laughter, and hooting. lol

Along with our photographer Scott of Worldiction Arts, we welcomed Nigel, the cool videographer.

Shout out to Alua Aumade for the black and white handmade neck piece (jabot). He’s also got some dope bow-ties. Support your local businesses and check out his Etsy.

We’ll be posting pics of the entire photo shoot the entire week of NYFW on all of our blogs. Stay turned, fashionistas.

Look who I bumped into…Model, Christina Mendez. I did an interview with her just a week before. Check that out.

While I was in Baltimore helping with Curves Rock Weekend, I briefly heard about Plus Night Out in NY happening in September. It is a plus-centric event that happens during Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week…Curvy Style!

Ashley Stewart was the corporate sponsor and also was included in the runway fashion line up. The event was hosted by the fabulous Joanne Borgella (above) from Nuvo TV’s “Curvy Girls”.

My outfit was fab. I had on a sequenced lapel blazer from Rainbow Clothing. The pants are also from Rainbow Clothing.

Here to brighten up your Sunday timeline with lewks and a story 🙋🏾‍♀️ On Friday, I was about ready to run away from it all. Emails. Folks messaging me with nonsense. Having to deal with book tour stuff. I was irritable and didn’t want people talking to or looking at me. I took a good ole depression nap and woke up with such a bad headache. “I’m leaving!” I told myself. I started looking up rental cars to go somewhere, anywhere. But no rentals were available. I slammed the laptop, wondering how the hell I was going to get away with no whip. The next day, I told myself that I wasn’t going to do any work or social media for 24 hours (we gonna start small. It’s hard 🤷🏽‍♀️). And that all of the work can wait. I asked me, “what would you like to do today?” I took an almost 2-hour train ride by myself to Coney Island and with my rolling luggage, I created editorial images in the amusement park, I ate chicken fingers and fried Oreos, I got my fat ass on not one but three scary rides (I’ll make a post later about how to navigate amusement parks as a fat person). One was a rollercoaster, bitch, that almost took my hijab straight off 😂 I took my shoes off and walked on the beach. I watched the sunset. I found a random party on the boardwalk, parked my luggage, and danced with strangers. I’m proud of myself because I get anxious going places I’ve never been alone. But I did it anyway. I had fun. I was spontaneous. I went on an adventure. And was my own company. Have you ever felt the need to just “run away”? What do you do when you are just overstimulated and overwhelmed? What solo adventures have you embarked on? Let’s chat. P.S. Can’t wait to show y’all these fire pics! #newyorkblogger #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #bgki #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #fashion #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #bodyconfidence #plusmodel #feminist #intersectionalfeminism #turbanista #bodydysmorphia #fatacceptance #selflove #goldenconfidence #wamfam #editorial #hijabi #beautyblogger #covergirl #monochromatic
