Hello beautiful people! I just returned from New York City attending The CurvyCon x NYFW 2019. The week was full of fashion, sneak peeks from top designers, and so much more.
Heading to CurvyCon
This was my first time attending The CurvyCon, and the fact that it took place in NYC during Fashion Week was a bit overwhelming! I can remember thinking to myself that I didn’t know anyone attending the event. At that moment, I heard my own mantra “Go Live Life Out Loud!” speaking back to me and booked the ticket!

As the trip approached, the CurvyCon team did a great job encouraging attendees to post using the hashtag #thecurvycon to share their past experiences and what they were looking forward to this year. Honestly, this helped so much, as it took some of the “will I know anyone” pressure away and it also helped with picking the best looks for each event.
I was able to make a connection with another local blogger Katrina, of GlobalMidWife, who was also attending the event for the first time. Before our trip, we met for a photoshoot in these travel-worthy looks from Lane Bryant.
Getting to NYC was a bit of an adventure, thanks to Hurricane Dorian. As the storm approached, South Florida was in the path of the storm. I made a last-minute decision to re-book my United flight to leave early Monday ahead of the storm land-fall. With less than 24 hours to pack; we made it NYC.
To kick off #NYFW, I attended a private influencer event hosted by Eloquii in Soho.
“Be Your Own Muse” was the event theme inspired by the influencers that are pillars of the plus-size community. Eloquii’s showcased their upcoming fall collections; while providing a preview of holiday 2019 (which I will share in a later post).
The Design Director, Yesenia Torres, walked us through the inspiration and details of each collection. Highlighting the trends and features that made each piece ready for fall.
We drank wine, danced, and boomerang’ed our way through the night. It was a fantastic kick-off to the week. Thank you again to the beautiful team Eloquii for having me!
