theCURVYcon 2018: What I Wore

September 19 2018 | CeCe Olisa

Thank you to everyone who supported theCURVYcon this year!

As Co-Founder of theCURVYcon, I am speechless sometimes as I watch it grow.

I mean… Vogue did a story about us, what more can I say? Is this even real life??

The other day someone told me that I shouldn’t be surprised at all the press, attention and support that I’m getting because I work hard and I deserve it. While that may be true, there are many women, especially women of color, who are working hard, yet they don’t get the support they deserve. So, I can’t take it for granted… I’m forever grateful.

I also know that none of this could happen without you. Many of you have been following me for years on this blog and now on my daily instagram inspiration page. Thank you for rocking with me this long!

p.s. I encourage you, if you have a dream or vision that you believe in, to take the tiny baby steps towards it every day. Don’t quit your daydream!
