Lemme tell you a crazy story. Do you believe in destiny? This feels more like dresstiny.
Last year I was still living in Miami. We were planning a move to Chicago, and I had just quit my job. I was nervous about our future, but I had a dream that reassured me.
It was in the heat of July, and I was striding across Millennium Park in downtown Chicago, past The Bean. I was wearing the most stunning bright-burnt orange maxi summer dress. I wanna say it was a cotton blend, tiered at the bottom, and perhaps had some crochet detailing near the neckline and/or sleeves.
But then I more or less forgot about it, focused on moving to Chicago, and stopped trying to find my dream dress.
I honestly hadn’t even remembered the dream until I picked up the May edition of Essence with Jill Scott on the cover. Flipping through the pages, there it was. MY DRESS! My dream dress! On Jill Scott!!! OMG!
Monif C is all about the showstopping dresses, and any plus size bella trying to get right for the summer should check out her swimwear. I’m dying to get the St. Tropez fringed swimsuit. You could even rock that as a top with a little black skirt! Ow!
Monif C. is currently going from city to city hosting shopping events. She’s normally based in NYC, but recently she was in DC and on Saturday she’ll be in Philly. I am seriously hoping Chicago is next, so I can make my striding-through-the-park-in-July dream actually come true!
