This weekend was amazeballs!! With the exception of heading out to a cocktail event hosted by fashion blogger Chastity Garner of GarnerStyle who was in NYC for Full Figured Fashion Week, I spent the entire weekend working on the prototypes for the first Inspector33 pieces. First pieces available really soon and hint..They're more than they seem. I felt amazingly lucky to work on what I love, esp. with my guy by my side - Bet you didn't know that the handsome John can sew (his mom taught him). How lucky am I? I didn't get to go to any of the #FFFW events this year, and I don't know who will be producing it next year, but wherever it is I will be there.
On Saturday my friend Oneida of Girl With a Map, who I've been lucky to know since elementary school, and I went to the Park South Hotel for the cocktail event (1). Before heading up we met The Curvy Fashionista, Marie Denee as she headed out to the #FFFW finale (2). I love her adventurous style; she was rockin' a super sexy lace dress from Lala Belle. Meeting Chastity Garner was wonderful. She was a gracious host and even though we were super late, she made us feel very welcome. Her silk Jibri two piece (looks like a jumper right?) fit her curves beautifully and she looked like a star. The group of women were friendly, and inviting and I hope to hook up with them again. Good drinks, friendly people, great view, and beautiful clothes - I had a great time. @GarnerStyle you are inspiring.
