This September, Essence kicked-off New York Fashion Week with the third annual Essence Street Style Block Party. The music, vendors and food were amazing, but the fashionistas took it to another level. As a plus size blogger, my attention was drawn to the curvy women who were serving style all up and through DUMBO Brooklyn. Despite the sweltering heat and massive crowds, I found some gorgeous curvy ladies who were styling for the gawds! I can't wait to go back next year, but until then, here are 10 curvy women who slayed the Essence Block Party. To check out who I wore to the block party, click HERE.
These are images from the Black Lives Matter protest July 9th 2016. People please listen, no matter what the headlines say today or tomorrow or next week, WE ARE NOT OVER IT! Please stay on this message, stay engaged, and stay active. These acts of racism are not isolated incidents, these murders of black men and women are not just personal undertakings of prejudice. Let us call it out for what it is! There is a system, there is a network, there are people with power and money organizing to destroy and diminish Black people in America. They are hurting us from every angle, and they will not stop until we are hopeless. They are taking our lives by killing us senselessly in the streets, they are taking our liberty by locking up our young men and women, they are taking our rights and blocking us from the ballot box with voter restriction laws (research your state). I repeat, THEY WILL NOT STOP. We must not stop either. Black people have endured hell on American soil, and we will continue to fight for generations to come, and because contrary to popular belief #BlackLivesMatter
I love living in the Washington DC area. This was my first time visiting eastern market in the 3 years I had lived here. My friends and I hopped on the train, had lunch, talked, and explored the market. The market was already packing up by the time we got there, so I plan on going back soon! Enjoy the pictures from the day below. Also, feel free to check out my vlog on my Youtube Channel, exploring georgetown and Tyson's Corner.
Last week at Macy's was awesome! I know you can't wait to get to the pictures, but let me tell you a little bit about the event. Macy's destination style was held at the Metro Center location in Downtown DC, and I had a blast. The event was hosted by Natalie of The Fashionably Broke, and Sara of Style MBA. It was a really cool shopping party right in the middle of the store, with an awesome DJ, food, drinks, manicures and beautiful blogger and shoppers all around. I also got to see some of my fellow plus size bloggers Chichi of SuppleChic, HeartPrintStyle and WhitneyNicJames. Since I knew it was a fashion event, I opted for a fun outfit. My blouse is from Macy's, Pants from Forever 21, and shoes are from Torrid. Hope you guys enjoy it, I'm out. x
