Were You There? Our Fave Looks From Essence Fest 2018!

Hey fashionistas! Did you and your BFFs head down this past weekend NOLA for Essence Fest 2018? Are you loving all of the pics and #OOTD looks from the festival? You know our Curvy Fashionistas had to show out for the event, and they did not disappoint. From performers, bloggers, speakers, and attendees, everyone came to SLAY.

They had all of our faves from Missy Elliot, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Mary J. Blige, Big Freedia, Tarana Burke, Lena Waithe, Queen Latifah, Maxine Waters, H.E.R., MC Lyte, Remy Ma, and so many more. Ya’ll the weekend was packed with so much, from workshops on how to ‘boss up’, to conversations on veganism versus meat eating. There was shopping, hair tutorials, celeb meet and greets, even a street style fashion show! So if you didn’t get to make it this year, make sure you grab your BFFs for a girls trip next year! Or bring bae and make it a baecation!

Looking cute in denim!

Always here for that perfect plus size romper!

Musician Tasha Cobbs looked fierce in her custom made outfit by Nicci Hou.

Eloquii was in the building hard! It almost looked like a fashion show in these ‘Nawlins streets!

It’s hard to say what the best part of Essence Fest is: the event itself, the amazing food of New Orleans, or seeing everybody show out in their best looks!

Are you already booking your flight for next year fashionistas? I know I am!
