Dream Big Midwest

Over the weekend I attended the Dream Big Midwest conference and was truly overwhelmed with joy at this year’s event. As most curvy girls in Chicago can confirm, conferences in Chicago are quite hard to come by. In fact, before this conference, there were no exclusive events like this in Chicago for plus size fashionistas. Usually, we’d have to pack up our bags, (like I did years ago) and travel to plus positive events. Here, I was able to gain insider information about the business of blogging, modeling, acting and makeup right here in Chicago!

What I Wore

Choosing what to wear was a no-brainer. I’d been dying to wear this interesting black body suit I purchased from Fashion Nova over a month ago.  When I first saw it on the site, I wanted it because it gave me Beyoncé “Single Ladies” vibes. The cutouts, the 90’s neck detail, long sleeve in the cool summertime? Yes!

What I Wore: Accessories-Sands Neutral Clutch, and Gold Cuffs.

If you’re from Chicago, you know that the weather can change on you in a second! To dress for the lower seventies/upper 60’s breezy day, I wore long sleeves to accommodate the unnaturally chilly weather.

My Forever 21+ gold cuffs were the perfect accent to complete my Egyptian Goddess look. I topped it off with my Sands Neutral Clutch I got from a thrifting haul, and my Justfab pink sandals.

Congratulations to Natasha Williams, founder of DreamBigMidwest! I hope this conference becomes an annual staple in the Plus Size Industry in Chicago. Look out for another post with the deets on the panelists and their inspiring speeches!

  1. Love the outfit and how you put it all together. I have yet to shop at Fashion Nova but you definitely make me want to see what’s on their site for me. And thank you so much for your kind words!

    You ladies are an inspiration to me that keeps me going and wanting to help bring even more opportunities to the Midwest. You all make me proud. And it doesn’t hurt that y’all BROUGHT IT! Fashion, Style & Beauty… I loved every bit of it! Just beautiful. 😘

    1. Thank you Natasha for creating the event! I didn’t get a chance to meet you, but I’m glad I can thank you for the opportunity. I am grateful for the work you poured into this experience. You chose an incredible venue, great speakers (an incredible host) and a posh event for the plus size woman right here in Chicago. Thank you!

      Ten years ago, when I first started blogging, my team and I traveled to Los Angeles for Full Figured Fashion Week. The event was amazing, traveling was awesome, and it was the first Fashion show I’d ever attended. To be able to have a similar experience without traveling far was a dream come true!
