VMA's: Hot Fashions or Hot Mess?

good afternoon CurvieBirdies.  I know most of you watched the VMA's last night.  While I truly enjoyed watching NSync do their thing, but so of the performances was just a hot mess!!!  Not gonna say names, but what in the world happens to Disney stars when they grow up?  is is mandatory to turn into crazy adults?  Dunno, but anyways.....

Here is a recap of the VMA fashions:

Jennifer Hudson:  Love her!!!

Rita Ora:  Love her dress!

Danity Kane:  Super Hot!!!

Jordin Sparks:  So gorge!

2 Chainz:  Hot Mess!!
Busta Rhymes and Lady Gaga: Hot Mess

Future and Ciara:  Hotness!!
 So these are just a few.  I didn't include the ratched ex Disney star because she has been all over the new and Internet, and I feel sorry for her and her super gorgeous father.  So what was your fav look of the night?

“The PLUS+ mission is to promote “PLUS Positivity™” by empowering plus size men and women globally, to impact their local communities. We focus specifically in the areas of personal & professional development, community service, fashion and entertainment.”
I am all about networking and meeting people that are active in the plus size community.  Please visit their website and see what this non-profit organization has to offer you!


LyfestyLZ Plus was in the building having an awesome sale!  Please check her out!  Super Cute Stuff!!!


Here is one of CurvieBirdie Favs Ms. Cassandra of Gems N Baubles.  As usual, she was super hot with that dress and "Brought It" when it came to the accessories honey!!!


And the reason I got preggers . . . Kushions lingerie!!  These corsets are so sexy!!  Sizes 1x to 4x, so there is something for all CurvieBirdies at this store!!

Great organizations and great vendors.  Have you ever thought about joining a non-profit Plus Size organization?  Would you like to network with some of these industry leaders?
