The Elite Curves Internation Plus Size Fashion Show is set to return to LA Fashion week this October and you don’t want to miss it. I was lucky enough to be there last year for it’s first year as it became the first of it’s kind. There is no other plus size fashion show or line showing at LA Fashion week but the Haute Curves show was amazing and made sure they cemented their presence at fashionweek bringing to LA designers from Australia, indie local designers and major fashion retailer Forever 21+.
Last year the VIP section was filled with plus size models, fashion bloggers and industry people all taking in the show. This year it promises to be bigger and even better than last year. You don’t want to miss this.
See you there!!

LINDEN:MADE IN LA
I am officially madly in love and completely obsessed with the LINDEN “Christie” Skirt in lemon. I don’t think I’ve ever felt this way about a skirt but the fit the way the skirt flows and moves has me completely in love.
LINDEN is the California based line owned and designed entirely by independent designer Jennifer Lynn. The brand actually offers only straight sizes but Jennifer is no stranger to designing for curvier bodies. She’s previously designed plus size and the pieces LINDEN has to offer are designed and cut in such a way that fit and flatter any body type.
What I’m Wearing:
LINDEN Christie Skirt in Lemon, Size L
Kohl’s Bathing Suit Doubling as a Body Suit (Shrugs I’m from LA we wear bathing suits all year round)
Mossimo Faux Leather Jacket
BCBG Max Azria Sandals
Lipstick: Milani ‘Flamingo Rose’

The 6th floor of the Beverly Center, where Obika Mozzarella Bar stands is being converted into a stage that will serve as platform for the opening ceremony and two full runway shows.
I had a sneak peek at the stage and VIP lounge area while running errands and I am excited at the magnitude of this years event. Among the celebrities who have confirmed attendance are Tarina Tarantino, Kylie Jenner who is the face of the campaign, Francesca Eastwood, Joyful Drake, Romeo Miller and countless others.

Last Thursday Milani Cosmetics celebrated the launch of their new website with an intimate but very rad party at Geisha Studio in Los Angeles. I of course was in attendance because let me tell you Milani throws awesome parties!
Milani’s new website and social media platform has lookbooks for make up inspiration, their favorite youtube tutorial videos and the site now allows you to shop for everything you need right there and then to complete your favorite looks.
My look for the night: I wanted my eyes and lips to pop with color so I kept everything else simple by just highlighting my face with bronzer and a touch of blush.
Milani Bronzer XL in ‘Bronze Glow’
Milani Baked Blush in ‘Rose D’Oro’
