Monif C. Plus Sizes: 10 X 10K
10 X 10K – I bet you’re wondering why we chose this title huh?!
Well this title couldn’t be more appropriate and I’ll give you 2 reasons why. First, designer Monif C is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of her brand and second, the ladies of Fab FourFashion just reached their 10 k follower milestone on Instagram! To celebrate, Monif C. reached out to Fab Four Fashion’s curvy girls Judy and Gail to model her special 10 year anniversary collection and we couldn’t be happier to be part of this historic event!
I have been following Monif C’s designs for quite some time, and have always been a fan. I even remember when they showed various plus size models wearing her creations on “Rip the Runway”. It takes a lot of hard work and discipline to last 10 years in the fashion industry, so we couldn’t be more proud of Monif C! It’s also wonderful to see women reaching higher levels of success! (To quote Beyonce: “who runs the world – GIRLS”:-)
I have to confess that when they first reached out to us, Gail and I did a little happy dance and hugged each other while jumping up and down LMAO! Trust and believe over the past few months we’ve done many of those. The feeling of utter excitement and joy is all I can remember. For Monif C. to even notice us was surreal. Come-on she’s dressed celebrities in the past such as Amber Riley, Jill Scott and many, many more!
So, to celebrate Monif C’s 10 year milestone I chose this stunning sequins gold dress called “Sasha”. This dress couldn’t be more appropriate, it screams glitter and glam! In addition to this, Monif C read my mind with this dress by calling it “Sasha” LOL Doesn’t this remind you of ”Sasha Fierce” circa 2005?. The fit of this dress is great. I love that the layer underneath the sequins has a lot of stretch. I really appreciate this because I hate feeling to snug in a dress with no room to breathe. Then again one can only expect the best from Monif C since she designs garments for curvy and plus size women; she understands our needs.
The hem of this dress hits just above the knee which is perfect for me, and I don’t have to worry about feeling too exposed. To complete my look I wore my nude cage sandals which worked like magic with this sparkly little number. I added a gold cuff and long gold earrings which I purchased at BCBG many moons ago and voila; Sasha Fierce is back!
And in 5-4-3-2-1 MIC CHECK 1-2-1-2…I’m ready to set the stage on fire!
For my tall babes: dress
Like Judy, the first time I laid eyes on Ms. Monif Clarke’s designs was when I was watching an edition of BET’s Rip the Runway! It was the first time I saw plus size designs and plus size models sayshaying down the runway to cheers and applause and of course looking FIERCE! I immediately went to the Monif C plus sizes website to check out the entire collection!
So, you can imagine my elation when we were approached by Monif C to participate in their Decade of Curves giveaway. Judy and I have been great admirers of Ms. Clarke’s designs, her determination and her success in building a design house that continues to stand the test of time – what an achievement!
One of the dresses that first caught my eye was the Monif C convertible dress (oh baby!), but honestly the entire collection was a feast for the eyes!
This gorgeous dress has all the wow factor I want. Figure enhancing style – check, sexy floor length gown – check, sexy sexy double slits – check and last but not least a gold accent belt to show off my waist – I’m in plus size fashion heaven!
I paired this beautiful dress with gold dangly earrings and an oversized gold link bracelet. The finishing touches were these blush coloured pumps. Now, Judy and I are both ready to hit the runway – you hear that BET!
