FFFWeek 6/14/12 Pt. 1

Happy Monday all!

Last Thursday I had the pleasure of attending my first Full Figure Fashion Week! I have SO much to show you that one post will not be enough! I attended the Building Your Brand Through Social Media workshop moderated by Marie Denee (the Curvy Fashionista and one of my blogging heroes!). On the panel was Marina Zelner (Queen Grace Collection, fabulous plus size clothing), Alissa (from Stylish Curves, one of my favorite blogs) and Madeline Figueroa-Jones (EIC of Plus Model Magazine which features gorgeous plus size women). I learned SO much from the panel. Being at this workshop inspired me to think of the bigger picture and aim high. These women are intelligent, insightful and business savvy. They offered so much knowledge and insight into the various aspects of blogging. After the panel, I felt more empowered and will put what I learned into practice.

The highlight of the day was meeting bloggers who welcomed me when I first started blogging and bloggers I truly admire. Rebecca (from The Plus Side of Me),Olivia (from Wait Until Sunset), Nicole (from A Well Rounded Venture) and Izzy (from Izzy Gets Bizzy) embraced me and showed me a lot of love. They are WONDERFUL amazing women with such style and class. It was my honor to have met them.

Below are pictures from the panel. I forgot to get my nephew to take a picture of my outfit. I wore a tribal print Calvin Klein dress, DKNY denim blazer with accessories from Macy’s. I will be posting the Bloomingdales fashion show portion of my first day tomorrow. Have a wonderful evening!!!
