Monif - 11.11.07

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)!


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,

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,

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:!

Stay Curvy,

…and other important truths.

Hello, my curvaceous lovlies! Long time, no hear! As always, life has been non-stop for me and haven’t had a moment to write, but couldn’t go another day without updating you all on the wildness that is well…moi.

Well when we last left off, I was in search of a fabulous new apartment in Jersey City. Jersey City didn’t have space for little ole’ me, so I picked an even better spot, Union City/Weehawken…if anyone knows about the Blvd. East view into the city, you know I am a happy girl! Who cares if the woman who lives above me prefers to march (perhaps a more appropriate word would be ‘stomp’) back and forth across her apartment? What does it matter that she wakes up before the sun—every morning? I have a beautiful garden and a gorgeous space, so you’ll hear no complaints from this girl.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

The Boutique, the boutique!! I am having a wonderful (albeit wildly busy) time here and it’s all because of you guys! I have never had such a huge opportunity to meet, talk to and laugh with my Monif C. girls. Just as I always suspected, you guys are fabulous! If you haven’t had a chance to come in and shop or visit me, please do; I can’t wait to meet as many of you as I can! One (of many) definite perks about being in the Monif C. Boutique daily? I can see what you guys are in l-o-v-e with!

Customers are lovin’:

The Nelli Ruched Dress…

The ‘Marilyn’ Convertible Dress..

The ‘Goddess’ Dress…

Just a few examples of some happy customers…feel free to send in your pics too!

That’s all for now, write to you soon!

Stay curvy,

…and other important truths.

Objectively speaking, we have the best Monday’s ever.

On Monday, around 3:30pm, in walks Ms. Tammy and she’s basically just like you and me– funny, stylish, and curvy. Only difference? She happens to have walked into our lil’ boutique with a camera crew!

Oh really, Tammy?

Turns out that Tammy is actually being profiled by TLC’s hit show, ’10 Years Younger.’ She’s had gastric bypass surgery, she’s getting ready for her high school reunion and now, she is ready for a new, fresh look.

‘New, fresh look’ for the plus-size girl?

You know what it is, ladies–Monif C., all day!

Tammy considered a few great selections:

The ‘Selma’ Armhole Mini Dress,

The Marilyn Convertible Dress

(in a few different ways…)

Much like Pringles–just one version of the convertible is not enough.

So, which dress will Tammy choose? You’ll just have to watch…

Stay Curvy,
