Thank you, 2013!

Thank you, 2013!

Around this time of the year last year, Mitch and I had just announced that we’re starting 2013 with a swap meet. Looking back, we are teeming with gratitude that we received immense love and support to our events, namely swap meet, quiz night, Juana C. The Movie date, Glam Tales, Spooky-Oke Night and relief operation for Yolanda survivors in Guianan, Eastern Samarand online gatherings like #UsapangCurvy and Pinay Curvies Swag blog link-up parties. Plus, we even surprised ourselves for surpassing our own target of 4 events in a year! Amazing! Read More

It is one of the hottest colors of 2013 and for the very first link-up challenge, we’re taking it down to basics. It’s a uniform color to shy away from our usual dark and Printy ensembles, the crispiness may seem to be the new epitome of elegance. But we know it too well that whites can be a dreaded clothing foe particularly to those who are on the heavy side. But thanks to the new breeds of plus size fashion, they’ve been keen on reinventing more and more absolutely gorgeous loving designs suitable for curvy ladies. They may not be available here in The Philippines but hey you can always take queue on how to wear this trend. Here are some inspirations

 


Pinay Curvies Swag Link-Up Party

Pinay Curvies Swag Link-Up Party

They say fashion has no rules, no boundaries… And to prove this right we have created the first ever blog link up dedicated only for plus-size Filipinas – Pinay Curvies Swag. We’ve always believed here in Pinay Curvies that all us has our own style, our own take on trends and truly, as a community we’re committed to sharing and binding that body love among us.

Blog link-up premiered last June 26th, 2013 and here are the list of challenges we’ve done so far.

  1. All-White 
  2. Boots Up!
  3. Pinoy Style Icon
  4. Denim Jeans

But before we’d get all so excited, I need you to read some important notes to remember about our link-party.

How does  The Pinay Curvies Swag Link-up work?

  • Every last Wednesday of the month starting this June, we will post one challenge on this site as a theme which participants must adhere.
  • Link-up party is strictly open for Plus size Pinay (Filipino women) bloggers only because it needs the complete url posts thus requires a blog.
  • Participants must add at least one Pinay Curves badge to their blogs as a support link back to this community. Just paste the respective codes below.

  • Link-up will only open on the forecasted dates and would run at least 7 days prior to its closure.
  • We require new and  up to date blog posts only for every challenge, no old posts should be linked.
  • Only decent outfit of the day photos of yourself or fashion polyvores / mood boards are accepted. We highly discourage any images of nudity, pornography, racism of any forms or discrimination and Pinay Curvies has every right to delete a link if it does not comply with the set of rules.
