I've been having such a lovely time here in Detroit for the Fuller Woman Expo. We arrived Friday night and checked into our hotel, which was a warm and welcoming place.
Some of my favorite people in the industry showed up to support the event, including Madeline Jones, Gwen DeVoe, event coordinators Cassy McBride and Stephanie Penn, Comedienne Erica Watson and models/Custom Plus Founders Shannon Hiett and Grisel Paula.
My favorite part was meeting all the gorgeous aspiring models and getting to hear their stories. I got to chat with them at a seminar I gave on breaking into the industry. I'll write all about that next.
The first night we went to a business networks event and then headed out to get some food and drinks.
I wore the most amazing beautiful jumpsuit from one of my favorite designers, Rue 114. It's a beautiful, midnight blue color and gad a great one-sleeve attachment. I opted for a more casual interpretation of the look, so i paired mine with black and silver accessories .
This jumpsuit is from her fall 2012 line and should be available in a few weeks from her website, Rue114.com. The clothes are so well made and she really pays attention to detail and is interested in dressing a wide range of cury women, from a size 0 to a size 22. And jumpsuits are so sexy for fall.
