And other important truths…
Hope your Thanksgiving was absolutely decadent! Black Friday brought a quite a chill in the air and with it, many a Monif C. girl to the boutique. Folks are getting fab for the holidays for sure…without further ado, the newest edition of Customer Fab!
She wears the Candi Colorblock soo well…
The Selita Dress-still rockable in those winter months…
The Marilyn Convertible in Pumpkin is not only a propos, but also super-cute and cozy for the holiday season…
But the Paris in deep plum and the Nikki’s lilac accents definitely re-define holiday colors…
That’s all for now. Keep those holiday pics comin in, girls!
Oh! And stay tuned for up-coming Monif C. sales. Let’s just say that this up-coming one will make you split. (That was a thinly-veiled hint, lol).
and other important truths…
Here at Town Monif C. we are getting into the holiday mood, but we never forget the reason for the season. Thanksgiving is a great opportunity to flex those master-chef muscles, but more important, its an opportunity to spend time with love ones and consider the things that make your live fabulous everyday!
It’s funny how things go. This blog was actually not supposed to be about this topic, per se. But as I sat in my office, this is what felt right, and I want to share it with you. So, when I asked some of my colleagues what they thought of me changing my blog topic naturally our conversation moved into a discussion about the things for which each of us were grateful.
Our incredibly hard-working intern tells us:
” this Thanksgiving, I am grateful that I got this incredible opportunity to work with you guys [Monif C.] !”
Her check is in the mail, tee hee.
Our fabulous and multi-tasking consultant Adrienne tells us:
” I am thankful for a million and one things, but maybe the biggest one is the chance to experience new things everyday and ability to learn from them. Also, love; it’s super-important. Oh, and my Mommy; she’s the best.”
Speaking of mommies, when we asked Co-owner of Monif C. and Mom extraordinaire, Elaine Clarke (pictured below on the left with Gwen Devoe) about her thoughts, she tells us:
“[I am grateful for] Absolutely everything. Every experience is a lesson if you let it be.”
Well said, Mom.
And as for little ol’ me?
You know, life has been so incredible to me. If I used each finger and took of my shoes to include my toes, I still wouldn’t be able count all my blessings and all the things that make me say ‘thank you’ everyday!
So, Top Three:
So, this Thanksgiving, be thankful for many things you’ve been gifted with–love, joy, curves, great taste (standard for the Monif. C girl) , experiences, family and [ahem] sales ….
I bet your list could go on and on. I know mine does!
Stay curvy (…and grateful),
Apparently cupcakes, cocktails and shopping are the way to a girl’s heart (and closet) because you guys were out in full effect for Thursday night’s event! I can’t thank you enough, much fun was had by all!
Let’s re-live the night in pics, girls!
Bee-ooo-tiful girls came walkin’ in:
Didn’t really take too long for the shopping to begin:
Don’t be shy, lady; we wanna see that Kimberly Dress!
Meanwhile, our Monif C. Girl considers a trip to Paris (dresses that is…)
but ultimately, the Selita simply called her name…
No worries, the Paris Dress still has its many admirers…
This sleeping beauty still dreams of her earlier trip…
to the runway, that is!
The party-goer was actually the same girl that modeled the Paris for the ‘Art of Curves’ fashion show.
Back to the Party– Photo-ops a plenty:
Co-Owner of Monif C. Plus Sizes, Elaine Clarke and Gwen Devoe, CEO of Devoe Signature Events
Model Behavior: Sharon Neal, Mia Amber Davis and Tanya (please forgive me for forget your last name, babe)
Ivana Fields (right) and her guest…
Good Times for sure! Thanks so much, ladies!
Now onto new happenings….
Turkey Day (or Tofurkey, for my veggie Monif C. girls) approaches and with it, something new to be thankful for…
and other important truths…
I’m late with this entry, girls, I know. But you must forgive me–The times around the Monif C boutique have been busy ones–cupcakes and champagne don’t just find themselves, you know! I have personally tasted each treat you’ll be enjoying on Thursday and they are sure to please.
What’s happening on Thursday you ask?
(in case you forgot)!
Monif C. girls continue to do Fab things!
Chenese Lewis, is the first woman to be crowned Ms. Plus Size America. Actually, to be exact, she was given their lifetime achievement award for her work as an advocate for positive body images. So technically, she is sort of…ALWAYS Ms. Plus Size America (how omnipresent of you, Chenise), not to mention a sought after actress, model and motivational speaker, author and entreprenuer.
So during her, umm…’free time’ (riiight), Chenese and her associates developed the ‘Flawless’ Calendar. The first of its kind, ‘Flawless’ features the work of curvaceous models, sized 8-22, from various ethnicities. So how fitting that the enterprising, vivavacious and fab Chenese would rock a dress that claims many of the same qualities to the Flawless Calendar Launch Party!
Chenese wears the Ashantia Dress beautifully….
Fab X four: (from the left) co-calendar creator, Jamil Kali, Madeline Figeuroa-Jones and Chenese Lewis clearly hate taking pictures.
Chenese and the ‘razzi: Chenese chats it up with a mysterious hand from ‘The Insider,’ an entertainment news show.

Signing off for now…can’t wait to see folks on Thursday (I mean it. I totally expect you to be there)
and other important truths…
I have a thing for alliterations. Left up to me, most, if not all sentences would be comprised of words which start with the same letter. That said, I will now attempt to tell you about the following event:
using words that only start with the letter ‘Q.’
Ahem [Fanfare, please]:
Oh wait. I suppose, now that you’ve already seen the event invite, the whole ‘starting with the letter Q’ thing would be a little redundant, wouldn’t it?
Alliterations notwithstanding, you must make your way over to the Boutique next Thursday for fabulous evening.
Meet your fellow Curvy girls, enjoy some post-work spirits and sweets
(really, when was the last time you enjoyed a cupcake?)
and be prepared to shop, shop, shop!
Looking forward to seeing you all there…
