So last week, as many of you know, I attended (and volunteered for) a few events during Full Figured Fashion Week and Avenue’s Blogger Brunch was the first event that I volunteered for.
The set up was pretty easy, and by the time a few of the bloggers started to roll in, I was already done “working”. That’s when I was told part of my “job” was to mix and mingle.
After an hour or two of mingling and eating breakfast, it was time for Avenue’s PR reps to school us on what to expect from Avenue this Fall!
Scarlett, one of Avenue’s PR reps, mentioned that this Fall Avenue’s line would have a lot of “hardware”, you know buttons, zippers, chains, the works! Which is cool, because I like that stuff! She even showed us a shirt that had details on the inside of the cuff, so when you rolled the sleeve up, it was still cute!
Now normally when I think of Avenue, I think of the store I can run to and buy my mom something for Christmas. LOL Seriously! But by the time Avenue’s Blogger Brunch was over, I was already lusting over a few of their pieces, 11 of them to be exact.
And here they are …
The Brown Cowl Neck Poncho
Their Print Kimono + Rouge Colored Pants
Their Little Black Dress (Perfect For Work)
A Stunning Pendant Necklace
Their Multi-Colored Cardigan Sweater
Their Teal Denim Skinny Pants
A Rose Gold Bracelet
Their Green Crochet Dress (which isn’t as short as it looks)
Their Rose Gold Small Hoop Earrings
And Their Red & Brown Booties
Now you can’t tell me you don’t like anything from above! Like seriously, Avenue’s new fall line is going to be something serious and I can’t wait to get my hands on a few of their pieces.
However, here’s one last thing that was mentioned by Scarlett that I can’t wait to try are:
Tummy Control Pants!
Like what! Y’all know my .. wait no you don’t because I hide my stomach in photos. LOL (It’s probably why I hate full body photos, aside from not knowing how to pose to save my life.) But I can’t wait to try out Avenue’s tummy control pants. I mean that’s one of the smartest things I’ve ever heard. I actually wear jeans so damn much because it does a great job of sucking me in, so to have cute pants that can do the same? Genuis!
But unfortunately, everything you see above hasn’t been released yet! However, it will be out for the Fall (late August, early September, I believe) and I can’t freaking wait! The skinny jeans are gonna be in all sorts of colors, and sizes, regular, tall and short, if I’m not mistaken, so this is gonna be good! I’m so glad I got to attend this event because I’d still be sitting here thinking Avenue was only for old folks! LOL
So what do you think? See anything you like?
