As soon as I confirmed my #fffweek attendance, the very first thing I did was purchased my Curves at Sea White Party Ticket. Now that I was armed with the "golden ticket" what should I wear? Normally finding and awesome white ensemble for a local event in Atlanta would be easy, but how do you stand out on a boat full of curvy women from all over the world and not see yourself duplicated???
Because this was going to be my 2nd time in NYC in 2 weeks, my budget put the brakes on a custom made ensemble. Therefore, an "off the racks" look was what it was going to be. But again, what could I wear and put my own unique spin on it? After weeks and weeks of searching, It finally dawned on me, don't reinvent the wheel, just KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid)!
Since I couldn't find anything white that took my breath away, I decided to let my accessories do the talking. Whenever I want to make a scene, I always reach out to one of my favorite jewelry designers, Rean "Enjeanious" Fisher
. I explained my situation to her and she created a one of a kind neck piece for me wear to this event.
|Special thanks to Rean Fisher for loaning me this lovely necklace! |
I styled the "Destiny" necklace with white, JCP Collection jeans
from JC Penney, basic white Talbot's shirt, Henri Bendel cosmetic's bag as a clutch
and K-Mart sandals
. Because the water was a little choppy, I'm glad I wore flats. I had such an amazing time viewing NYC from a different perspective as well as capturing some inspiring candid moments! I hope you like my look and enjoy some of my favorite pics of the night!
See you on the front row!
