It’s that time of year again where love is in the air and if you pause on any given day, you can hear the faint sounds of wedding vows in the distance.

8 Fashion “Rules” for Empowerment!

Fashion is a very personal and unique opportunity that you have to show the world who you are – and it’s an opportunity that can last for a second, a minute, and beyond!  I like to think of it as a resume that I carry with me wherever I go; a way for me to share a piece of myself with the countless strangers that I may never actually speak or interact with throughout my life.

These are 8 “rules” that I’ve developed over the years that have helped me become who I am both “fashionally” and personally. I hope they will inspire you to explore fashion in a way that both fulfills you personally and allows you to have fun!

Rule #1 – Be Confident!

Like everything else in life, you have to face each day ready to rumble because you are 100% fabulous and no one else can or should tell you otherwise.   But we all have our off days where we may not necessarily feel as great as we truly are – in that case, fake it ’till you make it! (hold your head high and smile because, well, it actually WILL make you feel that much better!)

I am the boss lady of my life

So You Want To Be A Curvy Model?


I first learned about NYC Full Figured Fashion Week from an article in The New Yorker magazine last fall.  I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that this event had evaded my radar for several years even though it was happening in my own backyard; they even have a pretty awesome website.  In fact, this year, FFFW will be taking place from June 14th – 20th, and yours truly will hopefully attend as a blogger, but unfortunately not as a runway model (more on that later).  In fact, I was fortunate enough to meet Gwen Devoe, the creator of FFFW at a meetup in NYC where we discussed the upcoming events, her background and our Virgo connection.  I love everything about FFFW and how it shares Dressing Room 8’s mission of empowering curvy and full-figured women through fashion.
