Sunday afternoon we went out to Fashionable Addictions Luxe for the Celebrate Your Curves Plus-Size Fashion Show. It was more than a fashion show, it was a great all-around experience filled with laughs & empowerment.
The event was hosted by comedian Just Nesh with the assistance of shop owner & event organizer known as Dr. Danny. They kept the laughs going throughout each segment as DJ LipGloss provided the music. There were snacks, courtesy of Eat Moore Cakes, & wine, so everyone was in the spirit.
There were different presentations given. Raquel Wells of Roc ya Body Fitness was there to instruct the ladies on fitness. She emphasized the importance of cutting down on the foods you shouldn’t have slowly, but surely, eating until fullfilled as opposed to full, trying before shutting things down and drinking the necessary amounts of water. Raquel does fitness parties, date night, bootcamp, as well as group & individual instruction. She insists that you don’t know what you can do until you try. For more information on her go to her Instagram @Rocki_Fresh. Next we got to learn about waist trainers. There are many different kinds and sizes and it is important to get the right one for you. Pretty Girls Waisted was there to model some and answer questions that people have. You can go to www.prettygirlswaisted.com to shop and learn more. You could lose 1-4 inches within 30 days.
Then we were treated to some No Such Thing As A Bad Hair Day wigs. Trece Washington makes custom wigs that look completely natural & you can bring them back to her to be re-styled, recolored or whatever you want. For those with hair loss due to health issues, who just like to change their look up quickly & easily, or if you just want the convenience of a wig without having to spend all day in the shop, you should go see Trece at Superstars Styling Studio. She also sells products, hair, helps with natural hair, & hair maintenance under wigs. You can go to www.superstarsstylingstudio.com and find out how to book your appointment online. After this was the actual fashion show with clothes from Fashionable Addictions & some sponsoring clothing lines. Seandale of Power 92 was also in the building to support & tell event about his Mother’s Day comedy explosion featuring Michael Blackson, Benji Brown, LueNell, Just Nesh & many more.
