style study with Susan Moses-mycurves and curls
Holla Loves ! How is everything going with y’all ? I had the most busy and amazing time last week. If you follow me on IG then you already know all about it. Last Friday I was invited by *Penningtons to go check out celebrity stylist Susan Moses during one of her style study stops in Toronto. For those of you who don’t know, Susan  Moses  has been a stylist for over 20 years and she styled celebrities such as Wynona Judd, Jill Scott, Chaka Khan, Gabourey Sidibe, Angie Stone, Queen Latifah and more. *Penningtons partnered with Susan to launch  the style study workshop across Canada in select stores. The  goal of this workshop was to help  give style tips and answer questions such as  how to dress for your  shape?  or how to get the most from your wardrobe ?  and plus helping women with confidence issues. Check out more pics below…….

Let me start by saying that Susan is  such an amazing person and so approachable. When the workshop started everyone was quiet and perhaps a little shy but as soon as one question was in that was it. Many of the questions were valid questions and questions that most plus size women can relate to. We were able to tell her about pieces we like from the store and pieces that we want to see for the next seasons. I wish I could share everything with you guys but one thing she said that I still remember is that shape wears are a must-have in any plus size women’s closet.



 We had some good food , drinks and of course what’s a good  fashion workshop without a mini fashion show. Plus size models Melissa Shannon and Tierra S  rocked the floor in their beautiful outfits all available  at your local *Penningtons or online.




How beautiful are these two ladies and those curves ?

Fast forward to the end of the show ,there was a contest for two people to win a makeover and have dinner that night with Susan and guess who was one of the winners?  Yours truly. I was chocked to say the least because I never win anything.To be fair the first person that was called out was not in the store so they had to do it again and the second person was me. The Prize included  hair, make up, clothes, and dinner with Susan (with pick up in the biggest limo ever). Thank god because I woke up late on the day of the event and just threw on the first clothes I could find, no make up and flew out the door.
Here is a little behind the scenes picture of Susan and I. I had an amazing time with Susan and her team and I could not  have asked for more. If you read all the way here you are awesome and if not I hope you enjoy the pictures.
