This quote could not be more relevant to my life this past week. For the second year in a row Skinny Minority served as the official stylist for Macy’s Fashion’s Night Out [FNO] Event. This year our hometown of Philadelphia was an official city for FNO!
I was so thrilled at the opportunity to speak to these women about Fall Trends, Body Image, Budgets, Bras and Boobies. This year I created and curated Macys first Style Sessions, where I took four amazing ladies and styled them in Fall’s hottest trends.
Our event took place in the INC Concepts section of the women’s department and boy did we have a crowd. Ladies were coming out of the wood works and with only two rows of seating there was standing room only!
I was thrilled to work with my “models” 2 of which are not only my followers but fellow bloggers. To the far left Mecca of Style Out Loud rocked an amazing Green Vince Camuto Blazer while Georgette of Grown & Curvy Woman looked fabulous in a teal pencil skirt by Alfani, both are available at Macys.
I wore a dress by Tahari, my dress is from his straight size line but he also offers plus up to size 24. This dress fit great; I got many compliments that night. Even one of the shoppers asked me where I got my dress from and of course I told it was provided by Macy’s. FYI If my boobs were smaller I could have fit a size 12 but I opted for a size 14.
I’m chatty so I absolutely loved talking to the shoppers after the session ended. I got great questions about bathing suits, jeans and even modeling. I also got the chance to meet many of the other followers which is always a cool experience for me. I can not express how much that means to me when people take the time to support what I have going on, its unexplainable. I’m truly grateful to have such supportive followers, family and friends. You guys and dolls are amazing.
But before I go here’s a video snippet of my Macy’s Style Session Event For Fashion’s Night Out… Enjoy & Hope to see you next year!
AGAIN THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CAME OUT AND SUPPORTED, YOU ROCK!
