Power Circle (DMV Power Meet and Greet)

Hello Again!

This past Saturday I attended my first meet and greet at the San Antonio Grill and Bar in Alexandria, VA. The event was hosted by Brandie (Lashesandstilettos on IG) and Tori (Kokoapearls on IG) two of my favorite plus size fashion idols. When I saw the meet and greet details on Instagram, I had to push the shy feelings to the side and come out and meet them and all the other lovely ladies in the DMV who we fashion bugs like myself. Plus I’m always game for happy hour!!!

Amoungst the hundreds of fly pieces I had in my closet I didn’t want to over do it and at the same time I didn’t want to be too cliche. Now anybody who knows me knows I'm such a last minute person I picked out the first thing I saw which was this simple black and white skater dress. To dress it up and give it the Toni Lakeysha stamp of approval I paired the dress with my favorite royal blue pointy toe heels a black waist belt and my favorite chunky braclets!

I commited my self to trying to break out of my shell and meet new people and i must say I never met a better group of girls. I was able to take so much from their conversations and I look forward to learning more from these ladies.

Here's a few shots from the DMV Power Meet and Greet!
