The question is not who she is. The question is, what she is??!!

Evie Foster is a Wonder Woman of Modern times. She is a dreamer, an excellent Mother , a concerned friend. A Fashionista in all her glory, a leading example of what a Plus Size Model looks like and a Branding Expert.  Her love of good music has landed her the title of Manager of Heston Music.

Her natural yet striking Beauty can be seen far beyond the gorgeous pictures she takes. It is obvious the camera has a loyal Love Affair with her. Her beauty has been captured in the clothes she has designed, in the serene way she has of expressing her inner feelings through her writing. It can be captured in the life she lives daily.

I met Evie online about three years ago when we both shared a mutual client. The friendship grew and although she was halfway across the world in Queensland, Australia I knew we would meet face to face one lucky day.

Time flew by and once again destiny united us. This time with her own project DeVoe Magazine. It has been a huge honor to be a part of this historical print publication in the Plus Size World. A success I got the pleasure of sharing right along her side at the DeVoe Magazine launch party in New York City.

Although we spend countless of hours in meetings through Skype and I knew by heart her lovely accent I was a little nervous when it was time to meet face to face. I was so happy and excited that finally after years of communicating online we were going to meet.

We met a few days before our big launch with DeVoe Magazine. I was with my crew photographer Ivory Jackson and celebrity DJ L.O.S. of http://www.emberradiolive.com .

I waited for her at a local lovely restaurant in Soho. Now the minute we made contact she ran to me and hugged me. Not the simple average hug, but the strong and long hug you give someone you love and have missed. I had found another treasure In my life and for Her I am most grateful. We talked for hours, shared our dreams over some glasses of Rosa wine and planned the last details of our launch party. I welcomed her with a few Orange Daisy flowers the bright color reminded me of her positive energy. It was a good choice it matched her sassy lipstick.

The final product has become a huge success. At the launch I saw the issue sell out right before my eyes. I kept getting up and trying to buy one but the line was never-ending. By the time I saw no line, I also saw no more issues being sold. Sold out!! I have ordered mine online and I cannot wait for it.

I have learned so much from my Boss lady Ms. Evie Foster. I am missing her dearly and so is every person she made contact with. She is a strong woman, warrior with class. Her business agenda is on point and she is one many in this Industry can learn from.

I thank you for the gift of knowing you and your brand. I am looking forward to working harder and pushing forward on all our dreams and goals. Glad you are home with your Beautiful family and I cannot wait to see you again!!

Full-Figured Fashion Week ™ 2015 did it again!! This time the white only ‘ Curves At Sea ‘ was bigger & better than ever. It is one of the favored events that this plus size fashion week has to offer. It really is more than just a boat ride filled with lovely gorgeous women and the men that love them. It has become a Fashion trend to attend this celebration at sea. I have seen some of the most beautiful gowns & dresses on this boat ride, than in the pages of bridal guides. You see everything has to be just right and detailed down to the last accesory. By this I mean nails, toes, shoes and even that ‘ Princess ‘ tiara, etc. No curvy Diva wants to get caught wearing a repeated dress. Now we have hundreds getting gowns created and sewn.  Many guests looked like they were headed to church to get married. As the guests start arriving all you can hear are pleased whispers of women complimenting each other for wearing the Right dress. Although FFFWeek ™ is a week of events we thick girls prepare all year for this one week. I myself was losing my mind trying to find the magical dress to the point I had 3 outfits ready & packed an extra one in case someone else had my dress. Yes, I went there. I love lace as you can see in the choice of my dress and the very detailed bell laced sleeves. One of my favorite looks was worn by Plus Model Shalon Dozier. Her entire outfit was on Point. I met girls from Canada, Australia, London and St. Thomas just to name a few. We exchanged business cards and shared great conversations. It was another complete success on so many levels. I got lots of compliments and no one else repeated my dress. Thank goodness! Now that we know the dates for FFFWeek(tm) in 2016 which are June 12-18 I am already working on all my outfits especially my white ‘wedding’ dress for the Curves At Sea 2016!! Special thanks to Gwen DeVoe and her amazing staff for spoiling us with such perfect events.

INFERTILITY.  There, I said it.  The word itself feels like a bad word sometimes.  Holding its own weight and carrying a list of stories, tears and heartache.  I will not be silenced anymore! I am the 1 in 8 couples that has been diagnosed with infertility and I will…
