My week in New York is off to a great start! Yesterday, I attended a blogger brunch hosted by Avenue during Full Figured Fashion week. The brunch not only allowed me to get a preview of their fall line, but I was also able to meet some great curvy bloggers!! This little black jumpsuit was the perfect ensemble for this occasion (although I was ready to climb into some of the comfy sweaters they brought to showcase – there is just something about fall/winter clothes being cozy and wanting to be in them even if it is already 90 degrees in Houston)! Although it’s only June and I know that the Houston summer will continue into November, I was so excited by the designs Avenue showcased yesterday – there was a trend towards solid colors with hardware details, mix and match work wear that could also be worn for a weekend brunch and even some dark teal pants that I audibly gasped when I saw! This black jumpsuit was the perfect for the brunch itself because of the unique check “lace” on the top, the peplum for some shape definition and wider legs to give it a more formal feel. I also was extremely comfortable in it to romp around the Big Apple after the brunch because the fabric is so lightweight!
I also wore this number to a Friday night fashion presentation hosted by Cadillac in Houston (check out this video and this BTS picture of the coolest slo-motion confetti throwing video – I did a happy dance when I saw we could do this)! I added a bolder lip and a darker smokey eye for the evening event, but again this black jumpsuit was perfect for the occasion! I am even considering wearing it to a bachelorette party next weekend when we paint the town. Y’all know how much I love versatile pieces in my closet and this black jumpsuit a contemporary take on the LBD and can really be worn to anything! What piece in your closet is your go-to this season? Let me know in the comments below!
