MONIF C. CELEBRATES 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

When I arrived to the fabulous Bo Concept store on Madison Ave. to celebrate Monif C's 5th year anniversary, I was greeted by the beautiful Monif C. herself. She looked absolutely amazing and divalicious in a long animal print dress with a super bad Cleopatra style hair cut. I felt nothing but love. This beautiful confident and uber talented woman started her line 5 years ago with her mom. Due to her own frustration with the plus size fashions that were available at the time Monif set out to fill the void and ease the frustrations of plus size women all over the world who wanted luxury designs in curve flattering styles. Fast forward to now, Monif is celebratating her 5 years in an industry that shuns plus size women and she is holding her own. Year after year she consistently produced creative designs that made a curvy girl proud of her body and on Monday Sept. 27th 2010 Monif basked in the glory from all of her hard work and she deserved every moment of it.

Models all outfitted in Monif C. were strategically placed around the room showcasing some of the new Fall designs and of course the forever favorite convertible dress.

I almost didn't make this event because I was working overtime. I had to leave the city to go back to Brooklyn and change my clothes. Nevertheless, I made it. I got there an hour before the party was over and the place was jumping and jammed packed. I decided to breakout my black and white leopard print dress that was gifted to me from Jessica London. I thought it would be the perfect dress to wear with my lace peeptoe booties from Betsey Johnson. Due to the humidity my face was glistening with sweat.

@Rhapsody- I work hard on networking with everyone that I meet. I make sure I pass out my bus. cards and introduce myself to people I don't know.

Thanks for the compliment. That day I didn't know if I had to work my second job that night which is why I didn't wear the dress to work.
