Wow, two media mentions for the same dress! First NBC’s Today Show profile on holiday dresses for plus size women last week and now Seventeen Magazine’s Prom Edition for 2009. I’m so happy everyone loves the “Olivia” Sequins Party Dress as much as I do. It’s truly a modern, sexy twist on sequins dresses that will last you forever. The fact that it works for a 17 year old rebellious girl who doesn’t want to wear a frilly prom dress and a grown and sexy woman looking for a hot New Year’s dress says alot about this great dress.

If you are planning on ordering for your birthday parties or New Year’s or any other special occasion, I recommend you order soon as we are almost sold out of 2X in both colors.

Mas Importante!!!

Here are the Monif C. Plus Sizes Holiday Shipping Deadlines for your information. People always wonder how quickly can they get a Monif C. dress? You can order a plus size dress today and have it tomorrow, it’s that simple. BUT if you need something for the holiday’s, I recommend you move quickly because things are selling out and we have to adhere to the deadlines of the shipping companies, USPS and UPS.

These deadlines are to receive your items by December 24, 2008 at the latest. Orders must be received by 2pm EST on the day stated.

Ground Shipping – Wednesday December 17th

2-day Shipping – Monday December 22nd

Overnight Shipping – Tuesday December 23rd

To receive dresses in time for New Year’s Eve, we recommend you plan for delivery on Tuesday December 30th. Orders must be received by 2pm EST on the day stated.

It’s the holidays so let’s just say we are VERY BUSY over here at Monif C. I am eternally grateful because well….some businesses just aren’t busy this season, and it’s better to be busy than well, not busy.

So instead of waiting until tomorrow for my shipping folks to come in and having double work, Rachel came in after work and helped me get out some shipments. After getting them all done (at about 9pm), we decided to head over to one of my favorite hole in the wall Dominican spots, Gena’s Grill on 1st Ave. & 12th Street (if I remember correctly)…all the weavenistas would know, it’s right across from Lugo’s Hair. Three years ago, while waiting for 20″ #4 Wet & Wavy, one of the guys told me to that they had some great food and he didn’t lie.

Over rice, goat, and plaintains (me) and rice, stew chicken, and plaintains (Rachel), we started talking about going on vacation. Now last year Rachel and I went to Barbados (my home) and had a blast. Because travel prices are going up, up, up, and Barbados is a popular destination around this time of year, we are thinking, geez, maybe I don’t know, Puerto Rico Dominican Republic Miami this year??? Now, I’ve been PR and Miami (no DR YET), Rachel hasn’t gone to any of them, and although VERY NICE, I explained to Rachel that when you are exhausted like I am, I just think the best vacation is a vacation where you know where you’re going, know which auntie you’re gonna call for dinner, know where to get the best fish platter, know which beach is the best beach, and know which is the best club to go to at night…I would rather spend 10 days as a local rather than a tourist right now…

So what else can I say, I’m LUSTING over a Barbados vacation AGAIN :-) . Come February, we’ll see where I end up, but who can pass this up?

But for now :-) , enjoy!!!

Oh and shoutouts to our intern Doris who was our photog for the night and somehow took blurry pictures…I don’t know how she made that happen, but let’s just call it art and leave it at that :-) .
