Let's Talk About Fashion with @PlusFashWKChi and @vivelafemmechic

Hey Glitterati,

About a week ago I was invited to the Let's Talk About Fashion event with The Plus Fashion Week of Chicago. This is something I believe is groundbreaking for Chicago. The fashion scene is pretty dope in the Chicago area, but to extend a Plus Fashion week is awesome sauce. The brain child of Myisha T. Hill, The Plus Size Fashion Week of Chicago is going to take the windy city by storm in October.

Drinks, Fashion talk, and mingling was the highlight of the night for me. I got to meet the wonderful Michelle Resendiz, and it was like we were old friends. She had on a fabulous dress from @thefrockshop in Chicago. It was in a beautiful blue color.

           The dress has a cutout in the back and lace cap sleeves

There was a fashion show with some pieces from various boutiques and designers in the Chicagoland area. Chocolate Sushi Couture by designer Niehla O, Frock Shop, and Vive La Femme 
The Peacock Maxi and the Teal dress with the Navy Coat is from Chocolate Sushi Couture. The Raspberry Maxi is My Swak Designs from Vive La Femme. The Yellow and teal bandage dress is from the Frock Shop. All four dresses give me all sorts of life in person and on picture.

The open forum started by asking questions about the experience of the plus sized diva in Chicago and who were our favorite designers and divas. Some of my fav designers are Tom Ford, Tadashi Shoji (designed Octavia Spencer's Oscar dress), Qristyl Frazier, Rachel Roy and Monif name a few.

The next event for the Plus Sized Fashion Week Chicago is the shopping soiree with Vive La Femme, one of my favorite boutiques in Chicago. Thursday June 28th facebook Vive La Femme Invite 

Hope to see you at the events of the Plus Sized Fashion Week of Chicago!

Until Next Time,


P.S. It's official that I am on the Blog Squad of the Plus Sized Fashion Week of Chicago!
