HEY CURVY LUSHES! As you know San Antonio Fashion Awards is quickly approaching and it will be a special event for the local fashion community. While most are excited about flaunting their beautiful gowns I’M ON EDGE! To be honest with you whenever I receive an invite for an extraordinary fancy event I usually politely decline because shopping for plus-size formalwear can be so discouraging. Shopping for formalwear should be fun and enjoyable and the end goal is to feel beautiful and confident in your beautiful gown.
Some of you have already reached out to me requesting suggestions and I really want to help because I know how frustrating it is. This is why I love covering plus-size fashion though because we all have similar struggles and I can completely relate to those of you that reach out to me.
The last thing I want to do is settle for something frumpy that doesn’t reflect my personal style and I know you don’t want that for yourself either. So this is where I need the help of my CURVY LUSHES! Normally I come to you with style tips and suggestions on where to shop but this time I need you to reach out to me with where you are shopping for formalwear and your preferred designers so let’s pull together!
This segment was not intended to be dispiriting at all, I hope you will find motivation and enthusiasm in knowing I can relate and I’m determined NOT to be defeated by a gown! You will not be defeated either and I’m really hoping to see you at the San Antonio Fashion Awards flaunting your curves. WE GOT THIS!
I hope you enjoy the video with a few tips that have helped ease my shopping experience and the PLUS SIZE PICK from one of my favorite curvy icons!
Until next time CURVY LUSHES!
