For the past three years, I have met with my blogger boo’s in ATL for LifeStyled Honors. It’s a two day event, that honors amazing people within the plus size community. There’s two events, an all white party, called Curves en Blanc on Friday night, and the Awards Ceremony & Fashion Show on Saturday. With two big events, the hardest task is finding the right outfits. Thank goodness CoEdition came in for the save.
CoEdition was super amazing for dressing me for the weekend. If you have not heard of them, they are an online plus size retailer. They have some of the coolest brands, and their site is super easy to navigate. I’m all about one & done dressing, so I chose two great dresses to wear to the event. If you are on the hunt for some new lewks, definitely check out CoEdition, they have some amazing pieces from brands such as City Chic, Junarose, Rachel Rachel Roy, Volcom, and they have shoes, & accessories as well for a one stop shopping experience.
Curves En Blanc
Curves En Blanc is the kick off party for the weekend. It’s an all white affair, so that is the time to find your baddest white lewk and strut your stuff. I love seeing all the shades of melanin in white, it just looks amazing against our skin. I wanted something fun and flirty so I went with the City Chic Fancy Free lace dress with nude underlay. I love fit and flare dresses (no Spanx needed) and it was perfect for the warm Atlanta weather. When I say I was asked by so many people where did I find this dress, and I told them City Chic- their eyes widened. That look of “Well Ok City Chic” and they headed to bookmark to check it out later is proof that is definitely a dress you need in your closet. I ordered this in a size M cause I wanted to ensure enough room in the bust area. I did have some room, so am curious if I could have sized down, but I had my trusty white belt so I was good to go.
For my accessories, I went to my go to as of late- Amazon. I found these clear block heel sandals for less than $40. Lucite shoes though super cute, do not provide much padding, so I suggest adding an insole for additional comfort & support. I was also on the hunt for a cute clear bag that I can wear with everything, and Amazon had tons of options. I went with this off white I will say that I get my money’s worth with my Prime Membership. If you don’t have Prime, I suggest it. Not only do I find great clothing and shoes, I get my photography equipment, and watch movies and tv shoes!
Lifestyled Honors Event
For the main event, I wanted something sexy, so when I saw this striped sequin mini from Volcom, I knew this would be the perfect dress for the evening. I love pieces that instantly elevate, and an outfit with sequins does just that. The inside of the dress is made of a tee shirt type material so wearing the dress is not only sexy but comfortable as well. The final sell- the price, this dress is less than $55! That’s right, this little show stopper is affordable in addition to being super cute. I paired the dress with these great mules from Zara, and added my trusty black tassel earrings and my look was complete.
For the past three years I have attended the event, and I must say each year it keeps getting bigger and better. I am not only proud of what Maui (Phat Girl Fresh), has accomplished, but to see so many women and men come together to celebrate and uplift one another takes it to another level. It feels good getting a chance to see my friends and just catch up and laugh, while serving lewks. It’s those little things that can never be taken away.
If you have an event this summer, and are looking for something, definitely check out CoEdition, I am sure you will find that special item that gives you all the feels or just something to wear to work, there’s so much goodness on the site! Until next time lovers! Muah!!
