Event Recap: Full-Figured & Fabulous with Raijean of Swa-Rai

Before, I headed to New York and got sick and all that good stuff, I hosted a pretty cool event for all my plus-size girls during the Shopping Festival at the Water Tower Place!  The event was centered around showing fellow full-figured girls how they can still be plus-size and fabulous! I had an awesome time as I picked everything from the models to the looks, it was pretty cool going to stores and pulling looks but it really is a lot of work; hats off to all the stylists out there! I pulled a total of 5 looks, 2 from Forever 21 and 3 from Eloquii.

Look at me trying to look serious….lol

After working in the back to get the models situated and dressed it was time for the show to begin!!

The crowd anxiously waiting…lol

Me running my mouth…lol

The models are about to hit the runway!

For the fall, don’t be afraid to play with color, patterns or sequins! Ya’ll know I will die in sequins!

Just because you are plus-size doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your clothing, it’s okay to add a little glamour to your wardrobe!

Be confident, if you don’t think you look neither will anyone else!

Last but not least wear clothes that compliment your body and don’t be afraid to have fun!

Then it was question time

After the show, we gave away a $100 giftcard to one lucky attendee.

And take a few pictures with the attendees…

Thanks to everyone who came out to share a piece of their Sunday with me, the event sold out and I couldn’t have been more happier! To see more additional pictures from the event check out our Facebook Page here.

Stay tuned for the next post to get the deets on what I wore!
