Monif - 11.20.07

and other important truths…

Hi Ladies,

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:

  1. Most important, I am grateful for my ever-changing and growing relationship with my Higher Power. Everyday, I learn something new from it and I am better for it.
  2. I am soooo grateful that the work I do everyday inspires me, drives me and forces me to my best self.
  3. And of course, you guys! I am soo thankful that I work with and for such an AMAZING group of brave, smart, beautiful women! You guys make everyday Thanksgiving for me, and technically, it should be!

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),

Monif

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!

That’s better :)

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…

Enjoy…

Stay Curvy,

and other important truths…

Helloooo m’dears,

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)!

Meanwhile…

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.

For info on the Flawless Calendar, check out:

Signing off for now…can’t wait to see folks on Thursday (I mean it. I totally expect you to be there)

Stay Curvy,

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…

Stay Curvy,

Monif

We love you guys. No really, we do. As usual, you ladies are systematically fabulous in your Monif C pieces and we are absolutely compelled to show you off!

So we proudly present….

Monif C. Girl Mondays!

Just one of many ways we want to say thanks and kudos, every Monday, we’ll post pics of you guys in Monif C. pieces on the blog.

Why? Because we loves ya (did we mention that already?).

See our Monif C Girl on the left...

Our glowing Monif C girl in the middle rocking a two-tone Marilyn convertible dress on her B-day…and killing the competion, I might add.

On the left, a stunning Ms.Rachael at a friend’s wedding in the ‘Nelli’ Ruched Dress. Don’t hurt ‘em, Rae!

If you were to ask our consultant, Adrienne, why she chose to wear the Marilyn convertible dress so beautifully on this particular Autumn day, she would tell you: ” The color red always makes me feel accomplished and I kind of wanted to be a little sultry but also comfortable today…plus it’s cold, and I didn’t want to shave my legs.”

Sigh. It’s called ‘mystery,’ Adrienne; you should try it sometime, hee hee.

She couldn’t quite put her finger on it, but she was convinced–something was different about today’s board meeting…Psych. Some of our Monif C girls just happen to be models too! This young lady works the runway in the ‘Diva’ Dress at the Art of Curves fashion show in NYC this past September.

I hope you enjoyed the first edition of the series, but here’s the thing; the only way to keep it going is to send us more pics of you! So next time you put on that Monif C. piece, glance at your reflection and can’t help but think ” I am inordinately gorgeous today,” pause , take a quick pic, and send it to: info@monifc.com!

Stay Curvy,

Monif
