Hey everyone! So I am still recovering from my recent trip to New York City and adjusting back into everyday life. And while I still haven’t unpacked, I wanted to give a complete recap of my week spent with team Fit for Me in the Big Apple. As you are probably already aware, I was selected to be a brand ambassador for Fit For Me which is a division of Fruit of the Loom that is specifically made for curves. Fit for Me by Fruit of the Loom sponsors Full Figured Fashion Week that is held annually in NYC and marked with events, fashion shows, workshops, etc. all week long. So needless to say, I was a busy girl! Here are all of the week’s events plus outfit details all wrapped into one!
I landed in NYC at 5:45am and then darted off to my first event at 9:00am. Talk about a quick turnaround! Thanks to concealer and this beautifully colored dress set, I was ready to go. This outfit was perfect to kick off the week. It was vibrant and comfortable and hugged me in all the right places!

This event was curated by Denise Caldwell, celebrity stylist, and showcased how Fit for Me underwear and tanks can suit any outfit.
Day 2 (Happy birthday to me!)
I was fortunate enough to bring in my birthday in the great city of NYC! I felt so blessed to be able to partake in this amazing opportunity while celebrating another year of life. God is good! I celebrated by doing what any other tourist would do, by going to the Statue of Liberty. It was such a beautiful day with breathtaking views of the city.
Upon returning to my hotel room, I was greeted with some flowers that my family sent me and champagne, a card and some of my favorite goodies from my boyfriend. I felt so loved! It was great to see everything on my window seal every time I returned to the room.
Then it was time for the Curves at Sea boat cruise! This is one of the most highly anticipated events of the week. Everyone gets decked out in their all white outfits and heads to a Hornblower yacht that cruises around the harbor. My Fit for Me team and I were dressed to impress!
I started the day by attending the Celebrate My Size Expo where you could shop your favorite brands such as Fit for Me, Ashley Stewart, Lane Bryant and more as well as enjoy some light refreshments!

I had a little downtime so I decided to go on over to Greenwich village for some banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery (so good!). Of course, still representing Fit for Me!
Then I went out to an event and dinner with some fellow blogger boos in this super cute Adrianna Papell dress from Gwynnie Bee! Available for closeting soon!
Another gorgeous day in NYC called for a dress that was as bright as the sunshine! I absolutely love this color for the Summer and the fit wrapped around my every curve. I got to meet so many of my followers and the people that I follow and it was a such positive sisterhood of plus size women.

Finally, I rounded out my NY trip by attending the highly anticipated runway showcase. Held in a beautiful ballroom and showcasing designers like Ashley Stewart, Cameo de Bore and of course Fit for Me, it was a must see event!
And that’s a wrap! See you next time NYC!
