Have you ever been to an event and had the time of our life?! That happen to me last week at the Macy’s Emme Plus Size Fashion Show. Held in Columbia, MD at the Mall in Columbia, the show included plus size spring trends, cute snacks and treats, and was hosted by leading plus size model and speaker, Emme! Since participating in the #MacysEmme Twitter chats for the past few months, I was already inspired by Emme’s positive attitude and vicious personality. As an avid speaker on positive body image and self esteem, her mission to awaken the inner magnificence inherent in each of us has been spread throughout the Twittersphere, and beyond!
Among the many trends that graced the runways, the soft pants, maxi dress and all white trends really caught my eye! It’s no secret that I’m all for comfort and chic, so these trends were perfect. From American Rag to I.N.C., each model sashayed down the runway in her stylish and trendy outfit. I was so intrigued by the prints and patterns! I actually have a pair of American Rag soft pants on during the show, so I felt right at home.
I must admit that I was surprised that the skirt trend was at the top of my list. I think the scuba material won me over! Scuba is a great material for plus size shoppers; it’s very forgiving, soft, and doesn’t cling like other materials. Emme was wearing an all white scuba-like dress during the event and looked so comfortable and fashion forward. So much so that I had to let her know after the show! 😉
The all white trend is perfect for spring and summer weddings, outdoor garden parties and dressy work functions. The models even showed off a few pair of sexy white heels, like the one above. I’m usually not a fan of the white shoe, but the cut out peep-toe heeled sandals above have me reconsidering this trend! Oh yea, if you’re wondering that IS Blogalicious creator Stacey Ferguson rocking the all white belted dress; fabulous, right?!
It was such a pleasure running into my fellow DMV bloggers, some I’ve known for a while and others I consider my new blogger boo’s! I was also thrilled to meet new faces like Danica, Jennifer of Curvy Connect Magazine and of course of Emme, the lady of the hour. Being surrounded by these lovely ladies was nothing but sheer joy. And to have my ladies, Mom, little sis and Mama (grandma) there to join in on the fun was the icing on the cake!
Macy’s put on yet another fantastic fashion show and hearing Emme share her nuggets of body positive wisdom was priceless! Hear a snippet of her goodness, as well as some of the looks coming down the runway, below. Until next time, be blessed and stay safe…XO!
