It's been a long while since I've wanted to post anything but as I was looking through my pics I realized I never posted my last instagram recap. So here it is!

Day 5 of FFFWeek continues with event #2, the Eloquii Private Trunk Sale Event. After the Modamix event me and some of my blogger boos decided to walk over to the event to kill some time. We arrived at the attractive London Hotel where the event was taking place in the penthouse suite. The room was amazing, and the view from there was breath-taking. On the main floor they had refreshments, nibbles as well as a manicure station and a tarot card reader. They also had a super fun animated photo booth by Phhhoto which was the bees knees! Eloquii also had a few racks of clothing that are currently on the website for the guest to peruse, check out and purchase with a 20% discount. Upstairs they had 2 rooms with pieces that are coming soon to the website to preview and try on if you liked. If you been following Eloquii you know they've come back with a vengeance and it hasn't stopped. All the new things are amazing, gorgeous and so on trend.It was an awesome event and had a great time. I couldn't stay too long because me and a few other bloggers had to shoot over to the Indie show but I was able to get a few shots of the event.

Friday was the Godfather of days with 3 events to go to, starting with the Modamix Blogger Event. Modamix is a new plus size brand that is currently sold only online and Macy's online, soon to be hitting Macy's stores as well. It was an invitation only event and the guests got to meet and greet the design team as well as check out their Spring/Summer line and preview their Fall/Winter collection. Everything I saw was amazing, I literally wanted to take home all of it! The collection had a little bit of everything, moto jackets, skirts, dresses, outwear, you name it. They had beautiful color palettes as well as gorgeous prints and textures. They also had a delicious spread of food and drinks, including my favorite..Champagne! The room was filled to gills with some of the top plus size bloggers, some that I've met before like my main boos Georgette from Grown and Curvy Woman, and Sarah from Curvily and some that I had the pleasure of finally meeting like Emmie from Authentically Emmie and Allison from Curvy Girl Chic. It was such a nice time being surrounded by so many awesome women, enjoying fashion, chatting, and doing what bloggers do best...taking pictures! As we left the event the Modamix team graciously gave all the guest a goodie bag to take home, who doesn't love a goodie bag?! I had a great time and I can't wait to see what this new brand has in store for the plus size world. To shop their collection to go www.modamixfashions.com or www.macys.com

Day 4 of FFFWeek was a light day for me with just one event. Spent the morning at the"Just my Size" headquarters for their 30th Birthday Blogger Breakfast. I can't believe that it's been 30yrs that this plus size apparel brand has been around. I've always been a huge fan of their hosiery and panties but they have definitely grown from that in the last 30yrs. We got to see all the new things that they are bringing to the table from tops to jeans, as well as a bar with a pocket! How cool is that??? They had a delicious breakfast spread for all the guests to enjoy as well as personalized goodie bags with their signature items of a T-shirt, panties, bra, and hosiery. We also got to meet the JMS design team, who were super cool and gave us a brief informative presentation. Of course the event wouldn't be complete with out all the wonderful blogger babes that were here from all the country. We all took pictures in front of the photo booth they had set up with awesome props, such as tiaras, hats, boas and customized signs. It was a wonderful event and I had such a good time. Thank you JMS for inviting me and Happy Birthday!

Now we are well into Day 3 of FFFweek and the long awaited "Curves at Sea" event has come. This is one of the most favorite events of the week and like always it was totally sold out to capacity! This year the event was sponsored by none other than Fashion to Figure. Beautiful women from all over the globe were dressed to the nines in their white ensembles ready to set sail on the Harbor Lights cruise around NYC. The guests enjoyed a delicious buffet, tasty cocktails, great music and danced the night away. There was also raffles sponsored by some of the brands that are participating in FFFweek as well. As always I got to hang out with all my blogger boos and snap tons of photos together as well as girl chat, which is always fun. It was a beautiful evening and I had a great time. Here some pictures from the evening...

FFFWeek is in full swing and I made it through day two. I headed over to the Press/Buyer reception at 320 Studios during my lunch break, where I got to meet and chat with all the different brands that are participating in FFFweek's fsahions shows. A lot of my favorites were there like Evans, Kiyonna, & Rue 114 as well as some new ones that are coming up on the scene like Poppy & Bloom and ModaMix. As a blogger it was a great opportunity to speak in depth with the designers about their brands and visions for their company. Everyone was super nice and informative. And as usual the room was full of beautiful women dressed to impress! Before I had to make a mad dash back to work, I snapped a few pics of the event.

Yesterday was the official start of FFFWeek in NYC and what way to kick it off than with a 90's theme party! The shindig was held at the Hudson Bond in Times Square conveniently up the block from my job, yay! Folks were dressed in their best 90's outfits and danced the night away to old school music. There was plenty of eating, drinking, networking and of course picture taking. There were also raffles for tickets to the fashions shows and also for best 90's outfit. What was also great was a portion of the proceeds from the night will be donated to the Alex House Project, who was also a sponsor for the event. The Alex House is a multifaceted program designed and led by young mothers with a mission to increase long term self sufficiency and independence by providing parenting and leadership development in a safe and caring environment. All in all it was a great night and an even better start to FFFWeek! Here are some pictures from last night.

So the other day I was looking through some of my photos and I realized I'm a total repeat offender! With my clothes that is lol! This is definitely not a bad thing, it just means there are certain pieces in our wardrobe that we love more than others. It also shows how versatile you can be with remixing pieces from your closet. In my case, it means I can't buy anything new because I have a college bound son and all my money is going to that so I better get creative with what I have! At the end of the day, it's all good. The fashion police isn't going to come and arrest you if you're caught wearing the same thing twice, (or in my case, thrice!). Where what you want, when you want and how many times as you want, as long as it makes you happy. Here are some of my favorite repeat offender looks...
