Confidence and The Curvy Con

Happy Monday all!

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending Curvy Con in NYC again. Curvy Con is quickly becoming THE place to see stylish plus size strut their stuff in a space that accepts them wholly.  It was so empowering to be surrounded by beautiful women expressing their individuality through fashion (see the pictures below). These women were rocking bright colors, bold prints and current trends without fearing judgement or negativity.  Believe me when I say there was enough confidence in that venue to fill a soccer stadium! I borrowed some of that confidence to move outside my comfort zone by pairing this fantastic Jibri dress  with Jeffree Star Cosmetics vibrant”Masochist” lipstick (which is unfortunately sold out) together!

Beyond fashion, Curvy Con is about empowering PS women to love themselves unconditionally and to be self confident despite negative societal stereotypes.  PS women have very few events that urge us to be confident.  This is why I highly recommend and support events such as Curvy Con.

Have a wonderful day!

    This is the best one I’ve seen. You really captured it with the color and the beautiful drape of that dress showing off all your curves. And a dress with pockets!
