What Should I Wear for my Tedx Talk?

I’m excited to share that I’m doing a Tedx Talk this week!

As you can imagine, I am a little nervous, but I am doing everything I can to prepare. The last decision is… what should I wear?

Over the years you’ve seen me do Wendy Williams show, the Rachael Ray show and of course, theCURVYcon so you know the different style choices I like to make for special moment.

Plus Size Capsule Wardrobe | Fall

A Capsule Wardrobe is a collection a few essential items that are classic and timeless, so they never go out of style. You can use these items to create endless outfits, from day to night, that will keep you on trend all season long, year after year.
This Fall, I decided to take ten pieces and create as many outfits as I can! Watch my Plus Size Capsule Wardrobe video, then click the arrows below for details on how I mixed and matched each look

My Favorite Pieces from LOFT Plus

I’m really proud to be working with LOFT on the launch of their plus size line. Two very special things about LOFT plus I’d like to share: LOFT plus is a true extension of the LOFT that we’ve always known and loved. The plus size pieces are exactly like the pieces in the straight size section. I personally am always disappointed when the plus size version of a line is more matronly or frumpy than the skinny version, so having the exact same designs is a very big deal for me. Hooray! Also, LOFT plus isn’t just online anymore, head over to LOFT.com to see if the LOFT store near you carries plus. If your local store doesn’t carry LOFT plus…

A Week in My Life: On Tour with LOFT in Boston

I’m a firm believer that taking care of yourself. Health as a practice is extremely important to me– I’m more concerned with doing things that keep me strong and healthy than how I look or what the scale says. So it is time to move forward and get back into my routine of things.

For me, this means getting back into the gym, karaoke with friends, reorganizing my closet… basically, anything that is going to help bring order back into my life.

theCURVYcon 2018: What I Wore

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.
