I hope you’ve been following my hashtag #PrepWithFabGlance on the social media! As you know, Nashville Fashion Week start on April 1, 2014. My website is one of the media outlets chosen to cover the event, so I thought it’d be cool to take you, the reader, on my preparation journey. I try to tag my posts, #PrepwithFabGlance, on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
|Hitting the gym – HARD!|
In week 2 I’ve continued my foray into more consistent health and fitness, thanks to Nashville Athletic Club and Code Jay Fitness, and guess what – I lost FIVE POUNDS! I don’t have a certain goal of pounds to lose before Nashville Fashion Week but I know I want to feel healthier.
Now, it’s time to start picking out the clothes.
I know it seems early, but finding the right five looks is quite important. Being a plus-size lady, some of my items need to be ordered. If you didn’t know, we are quite low on plus-size boutiques, that’s why I order online. If they don’t fit correctly, then I can send things back before the big week.
|It started with a dress|
If you follow any of the popular plus-size bloggers, you’ve seen people drooling over Simply Be’s AX Sequin Bodycon Dress. This aqua-green dream needs to be on my body, opening night, perhaps! I know if I start the week with this look, I have to keep the party going with even more show-stopping looks.
I believe in the power of the body-con! BABY! This is a dress I’d wear with a pair of chucks or a cute pair of flats. For me, Fashion Week is about work. Most of the week, I’m standing on my feet, in the photo pit, or interviewing designers. I need to be cute enough for photos, but comfortable enough to go the distance. This body-con dress from ASOS may do the trick.

I’m quite excited about the upcoming week – I’ll keep the updates coming!
