White Party

I’m currently in New York to attend to the Full Figured Fashion Week. This event is similar to the Oscars of the plus size industry. It has been created 9 years ago and keeps on growing regarding activities organised during the week. One of the key events is the “Curves at Sea All White Boat Cruise”. It’s dance night on a boat where all the attendees have to wear white. The sponsoring brands take advantage of the night to showcase an insight of their current collection. It’s really one of the night you don’t want to miss if you’re there and I’ll explain why in this post.

When your shape doesn’t fit beauty standards, we tend to deprive ourselves from trying some trends like crop tops, short skirts, see-through pieces… This night is a safe space where you can express yourself freely. Whatever your curves, your complex and your outfit, NOBODY will judge you !

Sometimes we blame communities for not supporting each other. I think that attending to this party is a way to make a contribution. You will meet models, photographers, bloggers, influencers and professional activist for this community. It’s a perfect way to meet people and especially to have fun together.

For this occasion I decided to wear a white dress from ELOQUII. I’m a fan of this brand, I think it dresses curves to perfection. When I buy a piece from them, I feel like it’s made to measure to fit me! The fabrics they use are excellent quality and they often carry special offer!

The white colour is very infamous towards larger women. It has been accused of highlighting all the flaws for years. Personally, I’ve always loved white: I think that colour makes any pieces elegant. I wear it a little due to a lack of occasion.

I sincerely think that white suites everybody. It’s bright and it’s often what’s catching the eye of others. Unlike common preconception, it doesn’t necessarily emphasis every defects that we’d like to hide…
What is your relationship with white ? I am curious ! Do you wear this colour easily ?

Hello Midlife Crisis

I’ll go straight to the point : I seriously think that I’m in the middle of a midlife crisis ! I’m in that phase where you wonder if everything is meaningful. Should I do more ? or better ? This crisis, I decided to embrace it and to do whatever I wanted with it, instead of letting it consume me. This is why I’m starting a new blog. I wasn’t committed enough on all the subjects that I wanted to address because of a lack of time and this constant need for everything to be perfect. Yet everything can’t always be perfect, as what is good is not always perfect. So let me introduce to you my new blog with all its imperfections. My imperfections. And for good reason, my page setting is not done yet ! Not sure that I would have take this kind of risk a year ago… I’m making progress and coming forward one step at a time in accepting all the imperfections around me, physical or not. Therefore my very first post is one of this imperfections. I will tell you more about this soon enough, now I’ll let you enjoy this nice look that I created.

Nothing is better than colour to welcome the warm days ! This peplum style top is rom last year and comes from Fashion To Figure ! I bought it during a shopping sprees in New York. I love the cut and the tulle top which reveal the cleavage.

To go with this top I got a super pair of jeggings from Torrid. This colour is wonderful and tend toward a turquoise blue. Usually I wear more darker colour for bottoms, I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome of this colour on my. Yes I love these jeggings !!!

I found those flat sandales perfect for wide feet when I was lazing on Castaluna‘s website ! A reminder of turquoise just like I love them.

Never underestimate shops that don’t carry plus size, we can sometimes found some wonderful gems. It’s the case of this black clutch with green leaves which come from a store where a don’t shop a lot : Mango. I sometimes can slip myself in a XL top, but this is really rare !

My hair has been done by the talented AYAWA Hair Style who is in Paris at this moment, contact her if you want a new hair style ! For the Make up I recently started to use darker colour as I’m getting darker with the tan… My new foundation is the Double Wear Stay-in-Place from Estée Lauder (ref. 5C1 Rich Chesnut) and the concealer is the Radiant Creamy Concealer from NARS (ref. Med/Dark 3 Amande). I’m still in the test phase but so far I love this duo.
