Event description


CurvyGirl Network and The Curvy Express host free workshops for plus-size women to learn more about defining a style and owning it.

Curvy in Corporate (Chicago): Beyond Button-ups & Slacks

Since Chicago is known more for corporations and not so much fashion, we decided to combine the two for our curvy women who work their butts off and feel they are too busy to ruffle through the racks. Shopping can be time consuming and often times a hassle if you aren't sure how to shop for yourself.

Whenever I see workshops for how to dress in the workplace, I see boring button-ups and slacks or looks that really do not fit my bubbly personality. Well, we are here to change that!

A few topics we will cover are:

  • Different Types of Business Attire

  • Finding the Fun in Mundane Monday (and the rest of the week)

  • Appropriate Accessories

  • The Perfect Shoe!

  • Makeup Appropriation

  • Makeup: Wrap It Up, I'm Late

And more!

Our guest speakers include:

Natasha (Host), Owner of The Curvy Express, Fashion Consultant & Blogger (@thecurvyexpress)
Janessa, Fashion Stylist and Jewelry Maker (@essiescloset, @robbinpatrice)
Jorrie, Naturally Jorrie Blog, Curvy Fashion Stylist & Blogger (@naturallyjorrie)
Rashia, Shia2Fierce Makeup Artist (@shia2fierce_mua)

We encourage you to join us in making a difference in Chicago and we get to do it the best way-- through fashion!

Please do not register if you do not plan to attend. If you are a no show (you register and do not cancel via phone or email), we will revoke the right for you to attend our next three events. Time and money are spent to plan these free events and we would love to share them with individuals who really want to join. We gain nothing more than the opportunity to meet new beautiful curvy women.
