Time to Party!!!

Last Friday was Day 1 of Curvy Con. If you have not heard about it, blogger besties GarnerStyle and Plus Size Princess came up with a convention that is about all things plus. This was year two, and it was extended out to two days. Day 1 was all about wellness and fitness, followed by some shopping and ended with a party at the Gwynnie Bee office in Long Island City. I love a good party, so I was super excited to attend. I have never been to their office, so this was a great chance to check them out. 

For such a great occasion I went with this great one shoulderish scuba dress from Eloquii. The colorblocking drew me first to it, but I love the cut-out shoulder detail. With a dress like this, all you need is a great shoe, and you are good to go. When going to events, I don't expect a lot of seating to be readily available, so I wanted to wear a shoe that looked great, but was super comfortable. I saw these great platform sandals while browsing Macy's online. My feet are a little on the wide side, and when it comes to sandals, I am always mindful of my pinky toe. I hate wearing shoes that squeeze my toe. No matter how good the shoe looks, once your pinky toe is in pain you are taking them off. These are wide enough that I just stand, dance, and walk the Gwynnie Bee catwalk, like I did in this photo. I wish these came in a bright color like a nice neon pink or a slushy blue for the summer, but you can never go wrong with classic black. I Definite must have. I wore these for over 6 hours straight and I was completely fine. The party was a hit! We were even surprised with a fashion show featuring their new collection designed by Rachel Antonoff. Her prints were super cute and perfect for summer. I'm eyeing the dresses. Below are some pics that I took of the gals. Day 1 of Curvy Con was a hit, and stay tuned for my Day 2 post.
