So you all are probably wondering why I haven’t posted all week…welllllllllllllllll, we are pleased to let you all know that Monif C. has been selected to be a featured designer on BET’s Rip the Runway for the fourth time in a row! We don’t want to toot our own horn (toot toot!) but we are the only design company to be featured on Rip the Runway four years straight! Not just plus size, straight size also, so we are happy that we’ve been asked again! Within the next couple of days look for a full recap of the show.

On another note, Las Vegas Monif C. girls, Monif will be in Vegas March 28th! We will be having a private shopping party for 50 women. You will be able to shop, shop, shop and meet Monif! So if you live in Vegas or will be there during that time (NSBE Convention!), please email monif (at) to RSVP. Time and location will be provided shortly.

So here at Monif C. we have some fantastic customers…some girls have been shopping with us since 2005 and probably have every single item we have ever made. One such customer is New York’s own Sadarielle. Every couple of weeks or so we get a phone call from her inquiring about this dress or that swimsuit and she always raves about how much she loves our clothes.

So recently I get this email from her that she celebrated her birthday in Cancun Mexico and everyday wore a Monif C. outfit. She also sent me some pictures so I have them here on the blog for you. Thanks for being a true blue Monif C. customer Sadarielle!

“Nia” Silk Butterfly Dress, I know what that orange armband means Sadarielle…I was in C-AA-ncun a few years back

“Olivia” Sequins Party Dress – Black/Purple

“Seabreeze” Mini Dress/Coverup, I need to try those ATVs next time I go away…looks like fun

“Olivia” Sequins Party Dress – Black/Silver, who said thick girls were self conscious and didn’t like to show off their bodies??? geez where did you get those boots?

So while in Barbados, I turned 30 years old…hip hip hooray for me! My childhood friend Cindi from Barbados (her mom and my mom were also childhood friends) and I made plans to go to dinner the night before my bday So she picks me up on Accra Beach and we go roaming…

So Miss Cindi neglected to inform me that her beau, Zak who I knew was a Chef is now the co-owner of his own restaurant…that’s what I call heavy… so she just nonchalantly mentions this to me and next thing I know we are pulling up to Coast Restaurant.

So Coast is located in StLawrence GapStLawrence Gap, the Gap for short, is the “party” area of Barbados with many bars and restaurants lining the GapZak and his co-owner (i forgot her name, bad Monif) have been opened since June 2008 and have been getting rave reviews ever since.

What I thought was going to be a few cocktails and catching up, turned into a full multi-course meal, cocktails, birthday singing and dessertI felt so special! And the best part is Zak cooked everything for us, the best VIP birthday present a girl could ask for.

I didn’t get the best pictures, but I had to post about Coast and encourage you all to go next time you visit Barbados!

Zak & Cindi

Cindi & I (don’t mind how I look, I had just come out of the beach)

The Coconut Mojito that Zak had for me…damn I wish I had one of those right now…

You see the look on my face when they brought out dessert…love you like a fat kid love cake for sure…

Not the best picture of the menu

I was trying to get a picture of the fact that the restaurant is next to the ocean, BUT my camera didn’t want to cooperate

I got this off their website, has the full addy and phone for everyone to take note

Tell Zak Monif sent you when you go!

Till next time…
