Full Figured Fashion Week Day 3 - Just My Size Breakfast, Sonsi Be-YOU-tiful Blogger Party and the Indie Designers' Showcase

Hey Guys!

So after a fun night out on the town at the networking event, we all headed back to our beds for a few hours before the next day of events! The morning of day three brought the Just My Size Breakfast, where we met with the execs from Just My Size and reconnected with a few members of the plus size community.

Next up was the Sonsi Be-YOU-tiful blogger party, where we were treated to make-up touch ups, manicures, prize giveaways, lovely hors d'oeuvres, and great company. We got to meet some of the fantastic people behind Sonsi, SWAK designs, Catherine's, and Pretty Pear Bride.

Once I had been all dolled up by the fantastic make-up artist, I had to dash out of there to try to find the perfect outfit for the Indie Designers' Showcase! I usually work well under pressure, but NYC was totally stressing me out! My first two stops were Macy's and Bloomingdale's. Both stores seemed pretty "fished out." A likely result of all the other fine ladies of FFFWeek and their shopping prowess!!! So off to Monif C I went! As soon as I got there, I was thinking, why didn't I come here in the first place??? It was awesome to check out her showroom and chat with other lovely ladies (also FFFWeek attendees) who were shopping. It was a very supportive, happy shopping environment, and I'm glad I remembered that Monif has a showroom in NYC, otherwise I would likely still be fruitlessly searching for a dress! I explained my situation and the manager helped me find the perfect dress. I actually left the showroom wearing the dress because I was in such a rush!

I am totally happy with how my outfit turned out. What do you guys think? I decided to wear this dress as a strapless, but there are over 40 different ways you can tie it to give it a different look. I think next time I'll try cap sleeves!

Doesn't Peter look dapper? We got his suit custom made from Studio Suits. The jacket was a little big when it came, and we had to get it taken in, so go for the slim fit option if you're ordering (we went with regular)

 And of course this post wouldn't be complete without me showing you a few of my favourites from the runway. I wasn't able to get any good shots myself because I only have a dinky little point and click digital camera (which will likely be remedied very soon), so much love goes out to fellow Full Figured Fashion Front member Danimezza, who gets the credit for these fantastic shots.
