Happy Monday all!
On Friday I was invited by PLUS Model Magazine and Mynt 1792 to view their Fall 2012 collection. To have the opportunity to see their new collection was too tempting to pass up! Plus size women want a plethora of choices for clothing. We don’t want to be confined by having only a select few brands. That is why I was so excited to be invited to this event!
Mynt 1792 knows what the curvy consumer wants and isn’t afraid to give it to us. I was very impressed with the selection of clothing that was shown. The collection is very much on trend but it is versatile to meet the consumers lifestyle. Many of the items were transitional (able to wear to work or out with friends). I was also impressed with the quality of material used for the clothing. We curvy women know all too well about poorly and cheaply made clothing. Mynt 1792 cares about giving us quality fabrics that will allow longevity of the item. If I’m spending over a $100 for a blazer or jacket, I need to know I can wear if for several years to come, not just one season. Mynt 1792 gets this and it was evident in their designs.
I had the pleasure of attending the event with Corrinn of The Fuller Figure
and Colleen of Short Curvy Fierce
. Not only are these ladies stylish and beautiful, they are SO fun to be around! Corrinn and Colleen kept me in stitches all night long! All
the photos in this post were wonderfully taken by Corrinn. As you can see, she is a natural with the camera! Also present was my Chicago blogger buddy Jaye of Curvatude
. I love talking and hanging out with her! She is one of the sweetest people I know! I bumped into Yve who was apart of the Fashion Night Out event
I participated here in Philly. It was great catching up with her and seeing her wonderful smile!
Mynt 1792 Fall Collection will be available online at mynt1792.com and Nordstrom (online only) starting October 1st. Please check them out, trust me you will like what you see!
Have a wonderful day!
