Chastity of The Curvy Girl's Guide to Style and I at the show.
The most rewarding thing about this entire trip was getting to meet some of my blogger friends face to face!
Nadia of Nadia Aboulsosn. Nadia is a drop dead gorgeous natural beauty! When I think of her style I think of the song "I'm sexy and I know it!" She's full of confidence (in a good way) and just as sweet as she can be. I can imagine her giving you her coat if you're cold even if she's cold too. It was such a pleasure to finally meet her.
I finally got to meet Skorch Magazine Owner & EIC, Jessica Kane! Jessica is also a personal style blogger/crusader of Life & Style of Jessica Kane. Jessica uses both, the magazine and blog, as platforms to encourage women to find confidence in accepting and loving their bodies. I adore Jessica and fully support her mission which is why I joined the Skorch Blogger team!
Aussie blogger Jessica Dee of Too Many Sequins. Jessica is like a real life princess! I just adore all of her tulle skirts and glittery accents!
Cornelius of Pure Chic Visions. He was just all kinds of fabulous. Look at that cute little face. Werk it Boo!
Caitlin of Closet Confessions. How fabulous is this outfit! Her style is glamorous rocker chic and I love it! The jewelry she's wearing is in the shape of hands! WOWZERS!
Figure 8 model Nicole Esperanza Zepeda. She did her thing in the show. Such a beautiful woman both on the inside and out!
I met so many people but did not get photos with everyone on my camera (some photos are on their cameras). Now on to the designers...
1st up we have Nicci Gilbert. Nicci was the lead singer of the former R&B group Brownstone. She also played the role of Vera in Tyler Perry's play "Meet the Browns". Well now you can add fabulous designer to her resume. For me Nicci's dresses from her line Curvato were my faves in the show because they possessed 3 things that I look for in style...glamour, femininity and flowing fabric!
Syleena Johnson, Keke Wyatt, Faith Evans, and Monifah were at the show supporting Nicci. I actually spoke to Faith outside while in line and she's very kind. They were all quite beautiful!
Here are the things I loved from the Curvato line...
Next up we have 20 year old ASHLEY NELL TIPTON. Her designs are chic with a rocker edge. This young designer is well on her way to great things! You go girl! How cute is she!
Next up we have Youtheary Khmer. Her designs are so soft and sweet. My favorite item in the show was this colorblock dress!
Last, but certainly not least, we have Designer of the Year...Jibri!
Jibri's Fall line is very classy and timeless. I can't see any item ever going out of style which makes this line the shows best investment pieces! I own a Jibri skirt and the quality and fit is superb. I even spoke to a model who said she could tell the difference in the quality of fabric used in Jibri's line compared to other lines. My faves from Jibri were the high waist leather peg leg pants and all the black dresses. I was not able to get any good pictures from the show but pulled a picture of the pants from Chastity's blog post.
