Event Recap – 2016 Curvy Lingerie Shopping Soiree

EVENT RECAPOn Saturday, February 6, 2016, I hosted my third plus-size lingerie shopping party - the Curvy Lingerie Shopping Soiree! This year I decided to kick things up a notch by moving to a bigger event space and bringing on board a host of fabulous sponsors - including online retailer HipsandCurves; DC lingerie shop Le Bustiere, which specializes in "hard to fit" bra sizes; Lisa Fleet, who specializes in boudoir photography; hand-crafted baubles by Roni's Jewels; Mary Kay; and Pure Romance consultants Yes Kirkman and Candace Malone. Meanwhile bra fit and celebrity stylist Karima Renee was also on hand to explain what we should look for when shopping for the perfect bra!

The evening kicked off with our Curvy Love Relationship Panel, which featured Brandon Scott, also known as The Faithful Matchmaker, who uses a faith-based approach to help singles find love; relationship expert Dena Reid, Esq. who, as the dynamic force behind the highly popular blog Code Red Flag has now added author to her list of titles with her best-selling book, Flag on the Play: A Woman's Guide to Finding Mr. Right in a World of Mr. Right Nows; lawyer-turned-dating-coach Rita Goodroe, who served as a featured panelist during the national Great Love Debate Tour stop in DC; and husband-and-wife hosts of the "SomethinInCommon" podcast Kym Nichole and Mike.

The audience also enjoyed poetry by local artist, activist, and author Rae Monet and later a presentation by Karima Renee. Guests also enjoyed raffle prizes, a dessert bar and, of course, shopping!

I would be remiss if I didn't also thank my friends with Curvy Girlz Lingerie, Pretty Pear Bride, and Secret VII for their generous donation of raffle prizes!

    You did a great job, Curvy CEO! The panelists were great and had a lot of wisdom to share. I was really impressed by Rita Goodroe’s one-liners and overall take on life. Great job.
