Consign Your Curves

Being in this industry has its perks. One of them is being invited to sell and shop at the annual Consign Your Curves sale in Guelph, Ontario.

It’s my second year as a seller and I love being a part of it. So many women come together to celebrate and shop plus size clothing in a body positive environment. Bloggers, models, consumers, friends; all united on one day to shop and sell their gently-used and brand new clothing from their own personal closets, at amazing deals. Seriously, some of the brands and styles are to die for.

Created and directed by Carlie Roberts, pictured below (left), it’s a must-attend event.

This year I picked up a few great pieces. One of them being this GAP dress sold at Melissa Shannon‘s rack. I am a sucker for fluorescent and maxis, and for $15 this one was a done deal for me.

With a gentle rope belt and pockets, this strapless smock is just so relaxed and screams summer vacation. It just makes me want to get a pedi and a pina colada.

To accessorize it, I would probably go light on the jewelry and grab a chiffon scarf instead. It compliments the outfit, the sentiment, and provides a little shoulder coverage if needed.

I got some new summer sandals from Ardene in a lovely nude with a centre strap of bling. So pretty! They fit my wide ankles easily.

I hope to see many of your at next year’s sale. Come and say hi and shop my closet! Special thanks to Carlie and all her volunteers for making this great event come to life and serve so many ladies.

#GetYourSexyOn Fashion Show by SIZE SEXY CLOTHING

Can I say EPIC? What about ELITE? Tierra Sedgemore, creator of #sizesexy clothing delivered an upscale, curve rocking show to remember on Sunday, May 3 at The Uptown Loft in Toronto, Canada and I’ve got the inspiring review for you right here.

Tierra quoted,

If you want to go fast, go alone. if you want to go far, go together. – by Robin Jones Gunn

And that’s exactly what she did. With a team of professionals, models, friends and supporters alike, Tierra’s show presented a designer (MiniMaxiMidi), a boutique (SexyPlus) and her new line of #sizesexy apparel.

The fashion show coordinator, choreographer and SIZE SEXY brand ambassador Ophilia from Ophilia’s Kurves, was cool as a cucumber ensuring all elements for a flawless runway performance were in place. Her attention to detail, and caring nature ensured not only a flawlessly executed show, but also that the models were taken care of and had food and refreshments.

The evening’s charismatic MC Nikki Morgan kept the energy high and kicked off the show with a spoken word performance by her talented brother, Dwane Morgan who urged us all to love women for everything they are, and not only for their “parts”. This was quite moving and he delivered a powerful message with conviction.
