A proud moment in Toronto Curvy Girl history was made yesterday. The first ever Curvy Expo launched and in my opinion with incredible detail in the execution and a whole lot of style.
With Major Fashion sponsors on the Ticket like Addition Elle and Pennington’s, it was no surprise that the day would be filled with stylish curvy babes, and a jam packed fashion show with some of the cities top plus models working and twerking the runway paired with fun, friendship, networking opportunities and lot’s of carefully curated style.
If you did not take time to attend this incredible event yesterday, welp I am sorry you missed it and there will always be next year. A huge congratulations is owed to The Curvy Expo Creator Megan Bradley and her Team for a job well done.
Aside from the jam packed Fashion Show, and the wonderful Vendors that I had a chance to interact with throughout the day, my eyes were on the Fashion and Style choices of the attendees. I have a deep appreciation for creative style. I love to see how personal creativity mixed with personality commingles when it comes to style. I am a strong believer that creativity will win over money any day! Just because you have money, doesn’t mean you have style!
I must say, my Canadian Sisters pulled out the looks yesterday and I had to do a post soley dedicated to the Fashion Curvy power houses right here in My City.
I am a complete fan of the pastel infused stylings Blogger Babe Amanda of Latest Wrinkle
Amanda’s look was provided by Canadian Retailer Pennington’s including this adorable high low skirt from the Melissa McCarthy collection. So Dreamy Amanda girl, keep up the good weeerrrkk!!
Next up we had the adorable Sarah Taylor, Sarah is a Model, Motivational Speaker and Blogger from the Blog Sarahtaylorsjourney.com
I have enjoyed watching Sarah’s personal journey unfold which also includes her personal style. This beautiful pastel floral print peplum is from Toronot based Plus Sized Clothing Boutique Your Big Sister’s Closet.
I love, love, LOVE the creativity and sex appeal of this cool combination from Model, Blogger and Social Activist Rochelle from the Blog Iamroreid.com.
I am always a fan of how Lisa from the Blog Mustangsallytwo.com puts it all together. Lisa isn’t afraid of colour, textures and daring silhouettes. Like a true Fashioniesta Lisa will invest in her look in order to make a statement, which she does EVERY, SINGLE, TIME!!!
Well if it isn’t the Canadian Ashley!!! Model Ashley Sharman ROCKED her Canadian Tuxedo with pride between Runway Shows and I was all for this adorable chic and casual look.
These Curvy Queens can do no wrong in my eyes, 1/2 of Fab Four Fashion power house it’s Blogger babe Gail Thompson giving us all a lesson in the mixed print life, finished off by a necessary silver metallic shoe…this is how it is done ladies and gentleman. CREATIVITY NOW!
Check out the texture happening with Judy’s look. She’s giving us pleats, prints, leather, moto and all the Sass!!!
head over to Fabfourfashion.com to learn all about this amazing blogging Quartet and their style pics.
Next up is Fashion and personal style game changer Ms. Thera Warren from the Dreamy and Stylish Blog Cloud14+.
Her entire ensemble came from Addition Elle, and even though the simplicity came through in colour, the entire look did not lack in style and creativity. Right down to her Boa accessorized shoes…go head Thera!
Designer and creative style maven Ava Jones showed up and showed out in her wait for it..HOT PINK Culotte pants from her very own collection called Pheline Couture, paired with matching printed top!!! Nothing tops a chick who can make her own ish…you just can’t!
P.s. Ava…I’m placing my order thanks!
And of course I’m going to feature myself in the round up! I too also rocked Pheline Couture last Saturday, mixed with Forever21. If you have been following my Blog then you should know that I love a good hi-lo price point combination when it comes to my personal style. Designer duds mixed with bargain brands always. Fun and unpredictable, that’s me!
What can I say, Pheline is to me, what Designer Jibri was to Blogger Garner Style back in the day. I am in love with how her garments compliment my ever changing body as well as she gives me the much needed individuality in my personal style that I so desperately crave. So ya, call me an addict, because I am hooked!
Though this list was in no particular order, I did have to save the best for last, at least in my opinion. Can we all give it up for her Highness Model and Fashion Maven Nakitende Esther. Now this is how you dominate without having to say a word! Bow Down everybody!
Nakitende showed up in a goddess style all black caped number that was worthy to be on the red carpet at the Oscars. I am not sure the details of this where she got this dress, but when i find out I will update this post and be sure to share.
I hope you enjoyed my Stylish round up of the 1st Annual Curvy Expo. I can not wait to see what 2017 will bring. Huge kudos to Event Visionary and Creator Meghan Bradley and her team on a job well done. Thank you for hosting myself and bevy of other curvy socialites for this incredible occasion.
