glitz & glamour…

I entered into the fashion industry almost five years ago, as a makeup artist.  My role was always behind the scenes, helping others get ready.  In all that time of being surrounded by lights, cameras, and at hundreds of locations, I never once got in front of the camera.  Sure I had several behind the scenes photos taken of me working on clients but never a photo shoot that was all about me. In starting Creme de la Curves, I kept feeling strongly that if I was going to truly practice what I preach, I was going to need to get out from behind the scenes and put myself out there.  In reading one of my favorite blogs a couple of weeks ago, I was inspired to put those thoughts into action and planned a photo shoot. So I picked out an outfit… and started deciding on a location.  Here are the results…

I put this outfit together as a dedication to one of my favorite blogger Too Many Sequins, after I found out that she was also 5’11” {because I am too}. She wears the most amazing high heels, I sometimes get insecure being both curvy and tall but faced that head on this weekend.

{Giveaway} beatrix prive – Luxury Plus Size Lingerie

Women love to feel sexy… we just do. No matter what the catalyst for these feelings, at the end of the day, all we want is to feel beautiful, sexy and loved. I can attest that as a curvy woman, shopping for lingerie isn’t always the most enjoyable experience.  There are so many variables to a curvy woman’s body, that it can be a challenge for a designer to create a piece can build both confidence, sex appeal and comfort.  For myself, when I find a cut or design that both fits and flatters I become quite loyal to the brand.

This weekend I was able to attend the national launch of beatrix prive, a plus size luxury lingerie, designed by Jenny Davis.  I was so excited to see not only the beautiful thought and craftsmanship that goes into each piece but also to experience the look and feel of the impeccable fabrics used.  I can’t wait to see the rest of the collections that were described to me come into fruition.

Using the finest silk charmeuse and imported lace, Davis told me she has been working for over two years on her design, perfecting both the look, feel and comfort of her thong. In speaking with Davis, she was explaining how ideally women like to match their bra and panties, no matter what their size. “We all have that bra that we love and look best in, and the matching bottoms don’t always offer the same flattering effect.  The color combinations of beatrix prive offer the ability to mix and match while allowing women to attain that overall goal of comfort and coverage.” stated Davis. The launch event was hosted by Strut Bridal Salon in downtown Phoenix, AZ with sponsorship from J.Bond Jewelry and My Goodness Cakes also both of Phoenix
