Monif - 05.07.09


DC was a whirlwind! The Monif C. Private Shopping Event in DC was amazing! Rachel, Aisha (my best friend of 10 years), and I loaded up the trunk and sach-sayed our way down to DC for the weekend. It was so great to meet Monif C. customers who were so sweet and it truly was a great Saturday for all. We were only supposed to have 50 customers but about 95 customers showed up AND stayed until 9pm…we literally had to KICK girls out! But it was alot of fun, and we are so grateful for the support!

There are tons of pics below including pictures of some new styles that the DC girls got to preview first (don’t be jealous…), so check them out.

Next stops on the Monif C. Private Shopping tour are Houston May 16th at Strut Boutique in the Galleria, call Strut at 713.621.4000 for details! I’ll also be in Atlanta soon after! Look out for that info…

Also, I am thinking of doing an event in Chicago…what do you all think? Midwest curvy girls, let me know if we should come, email me at monif (at)

Aisha leaves you with this artsy photo that I am sure you are dying to download, print, and post on your wall…thank me later.

Oh, and don’t mind the lighting on the sequins dress, it’s much brighter, it’s just hard to shoot sequins… Until next time…
