Friday night I had the pleasure of attending a lovely rooftop party at the Wythe Hotel hosted by Eloquii in honor of the first annual Curvy Con which is the brainchild of Cece Olisa & Chastity Garner. Eloquii had their own private suite with a bartender creating the signature cocktail of the evening called the #XOQ, a great drink made with tequila and grapefruit juice, great finger food (mini cheeseburgers & grilled cheese), as well as a gorgeous view of the city. Since it was an Eloquii event, it was only right to wear something of theirs. For the evening I went with their Ruffle Sleeve Jumpsuit. When I first saw this jumpsuit I thought there was no way I can pull this off, but when I saw Jeniese from Je Ne Sais Quoi wear it, I was inspired to give it a try. (I got a chance to meet her at the event, and we bonded over jumpsuits- she is my girl crush). Alas, when I went to go buy it my size was sold out - NOOOO! I guess the fashion gods were on my side because I ended up getting an email from Eloquii saying that it was back in stock. I made sure I did not miss out on it this time around round, and double bonus there was a sale! I kept the royal blue going by pairing the jumpsuit with my Vince Camuto Casara sandals. I found these cuties on the sale rack at Macy's and I am glad I did. I was standing in these for about 4 hours and I was good. Any heel that does not want me to take them off and throw them across the room after two hours is a keeper. Definitely give these shoes a try if you are looking for a cute and comfy heel, also the royal blue pairs well with a lot of colors which makes them extremely versatile. Accessories wise I went with my leopard Gap pouch, Miu Miu shades, and my gold bib necklace.
Back to the event- I was super excited because I got to meet my gram friend Dionna from Made Me Pretty in person! I also got to meet Jeniese, Georgette from Grown and Curvy Woman, and Pepper from Pretty Plus Pep . I chatted with Keirra Sheard- she marveled at the fact that my jumpsuit matched my shoes perfectly (swoon) and we chatted about the launch of her new clothing line Eleven 60. I definitely want to thank the Eloquii team for a wonderful event. Mariah, Jodi, and the rest of the team are great and it was great to meet them in person. Of course I spent time with my usual suspects, and afterwards we kept it going with drinks, laughs, and food. Here are some pics I took of the of some of the lovely ladies that attended. It was nice being behind the camera again taking shots of all the gorgeous ladies in attendance. Next up lovers is the first annual Curvy Con. Check back later this week for my recap of the event.
