Events 3 Comments

A few dozen plus size style bloggers, models, influencers, photographers, stylists, MUA/hair stylists, my long-time friends and family gathered on the ACE Hotel rooftop in Downtown Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of this very website. In case you weren’t able to make the event, below are a few photos and a recap video to give you an idea of what you missed.

Thank you to everyone who came out. It brings a tear to my eye knowing how much love and support I have in my life. <3

A very special thank you to my sponsors:


To celebrate hitting 10,000 followers on Instagram, I’m having a contest. The prize will be one of the few remaining gift bags from the event. (So, there you’ve got several chances of winning!) To give you an idea of how awesome the bags are, they include vouchers for a pair of Bandalettes and Undersummers (among other fab items from the brands listed above)!

To enter the contest, you must do the following:

  1. Follow me on Instagram (@Chiefofstyle)
  2. Like one of my most recent posts
  3. Tag three friends under the post you liked
  4. Subscribe to my blog (on the home page there’s a signup box on the right once you scroll down about half way)

That’s it! I’ll announce the winners next week. Good luck!

This Sunday: Website Launch Party & Meet Up

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” – Oprah Winfrey

As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m on the fast track to reaching so many milestones I kept myself from achieving before. I’m working harder – and smarter – than I’ve ever worked before because there’s really no time to waste. But, I do believe in celebrating the wins (no matter how big or small). Setting goals and tracking your progress to reaching them is so important and, in my opinion, the only way to move forward by leaps and bounds.

That said, I decided a few weeks ago to throw a party to meet my followers and the friends I’ve made thus far…and, of course, to celebrate how far I’ve come. I also wanted to take time to thank all my family and long-time friends who have supported me along the way. I truly believe in rewarding oneself (handsomely) after achieving a significant feat. #TreatYoSelf For me, that challenge was to stop talking about The Chief of Style and, instead, create it.

If you’re in the Los Angeles area, I hope you’ll consider stopping by the ACE Hotel rooftop for this #SundayFunday party. I’ve invited several dozen plus size models, bloggers, influencers, hair and makeup artists, photographers, etc. Best of all, my good friend, DJ Whitney Day, will be spinning! So, it truly will be an awesome opportunity to meet folks in the industry while enjoying a beautiful, California sunset. If you aren’t able to join, I hope you’ll still celebrate with me by having a toast of your favorite beverage wherever you are.

Here’s a link with more information and link to R.S.V.P. The first 50 people will score a gift bag filled with freebies from @Bandeletes, @KurvesbyKimi, @Eloquii, @YoursClothingUK, @GoMedZone, @BareSnacks, @DrinkNeuro, @GoodWipes, @inCREASEtheFOLD, @RyzeProject…among others.

Cheers to achieving all of your hopes and dreams – starting NOW!
