So the CurvyCon happened last Saturday I can’t believe it’s already been over a week. I made the trek down to New York City with a FashiononaCurve and I met up with some other DMV Curvy Bloggers. The overall experience at the conference was good. I got to meet some of my favorite bloggers, bloggers like Kristine, Ro from beauticurve, the blogger behind bigbeautifulblackgirls, of course one of the organizers Cece, Nadia A. , everythingcurvyandchic , hung out with ontheQtrain , even Gabifresh and so many other wonderful bloggers. I was specifically taken aback by how humble Ro of beauticurve was #bloggercrush lol. I also got to preview a lot of brands that I had previously seen online, brands that I have been wanting to try like Nakimuli and Rebdolls. Of course I got a swag bag . I also was able to preview Kierra Sheards clothing line and I tried on one of the pieces.
From an aesthetics point of view they did a great job on decor. Of course the highlight for me was in fact meeting all of these wonderful bloggers that I follow and admire. The only con for me was having to leave to go get lunch. There wasn’t an official lunch break, we had to make the decision to leave to get lunch and in the process we missed some of the activities. Although the event had intermissions most people used that time to walk around and mingle, shop and take photos.
As far as my outfit I kept things minimal and comfortable. As I stated in my What to Wear to a Conference post you need to keep comfort in mind. I went for Culottes (now 50% off) cause I am a pants kind of girl and this Pair (now 50% off) from Asos was perfect with its draping. When wearing a loose / draped piece like my culottes Its best to Keep proportions in mind and go with something fitted up top. I went with a fitted semi sheer Tee and some sky high Peeptoe Platform Pumps ( key word platform), because culotes look best with a higher heel. Finally to complete the look and add a little edge I choose a Vampy Purple Lip which tied in the purple from the Shoe.
