This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Curves Rock Fashion Weekend Fashion Show. This was my 2nd time attending the show; my 1st time was 2 years ago, thanks to the tickets I won from The Curvy CEO! This years show was held in my hometown of Baltimore, Maryland at the Hyatt Regency downtown. The show was hosted by the hilarious Tionna Smalls who’s been seen on VH1′s reality television series What Chilli Wants, as well as the talk show Bethenny. Her jokes, dance moves and high energy kept the show going as the fabulous creations that graced the runway.
I’m always happy to see plus size women showcased in a positive light. Sometimes women are seen as unhealthy because we’re plus size and that’s not (always) the case. There are also the mindless assumptions of those who think plus size women can’t be stylish because, well we’re “too big”. The Curves Rock Fashion Weekend Fashion Show clearly silenced the naysayers and I for one was happy to be part of such an event. Co-founders and sisters Tykesha and Chanell did an excellent job in selecting the plus size designers to be showcased. Some of the collections had me gripping my wallet because I literally wanted to snatch a few of the designs off the racks after the show, LOL! Take a look at some of my favorite pieces and I’m sure you’ll understand.
See what I mean?! Wallet clutch worthy, right? I loved the movement and fabrics used in the above designs. I was also able to capture a few videos from the runway. I uploaded those on Instagram - one of my faves is the flowy Marco Hall floral dress.There were other talented designers represented on the runway as well. Below is a full list.

So tell me, which of the looks I posted is your fave? Have you ever been to Curves Rock Fashion Weekend? Let me know!
I can’t wait to attend next year. Although I didn’t attend the other weekend festivities, I definitely enjoyed the fashion show. I was able to mingle with a few of my blog buddies, visit and shop the vendor tables, and of course take in some incredible fashions. Until tomorrow, be blessed and stay safe…XO!
