One of my absolute FAVOURITE plus size designers, Monif C, is celebrating her tenth anniversary – A DECADE OF CURVES!!!
I truly have to applaud Monif for everything she has done in this industry. She started producing stylish and unique designs 10 years ago, when no one else was really doing it, and the market hadn’t even been established for fashion forward plus yet. She took a brave and bold step, providing stunning pieces to fashion-starved customers. Monif was designing plus size bikinis ever before it became the “in” thing to wear. Her designs are fun, fashionable, and completely unapologetic.
Thank you, Monif, for trailblazing for all of us in this industry. We love you!!!
Now for my Monif C look, I chose the Neoprene Jasmine Dress in Ivory, and I absolutely ADORE it!!! It has such a beautiful shape to it – it’s fit and flare, which I adore, and it has such a pretty high low cut. The fit was amazing and I just love the dress!!! I paired it with a faux fur hand muff and a fascinator that I made myself by hand. I was going for kind of a winter wonderland look, but it turned out sort of bridal, but that’s okay! I was getting more honks than usual while we were taking the pictures, and I’m pretty sure people thought it was my wedding day, but oh well! Why designate all that fashion goodness to just one day, right? This look would be pretty amazing for a more casual wedding or even for a fancy bridal shower. I am going to try to style it a bit differently the next time I wear it, maybe with more pops of bright colour in my accessories!
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Monif C, ten lovely bloggers (myself included!!!) are showcasing one of her current designs, and hosting fabulous giveaways! One lucky Curvy Canadian reader will win a Monif C. piece of her choice!!! Enter below!
