Shopping while Kurvee, 5/01/2011

by Monique Frausto


Shopping and Beauty events in Los Angeles can be a little lopsided, when it comes to the range of sizes available. Curvy women are often left out wondering why and when there will be an event where actual shopping can be done.

Thanks to Tamika McDonald, the time has finally come. On Sunday, April 10th, the curvy women of Los Angeles attended a special shopping and beauty event appropriately named Kurvee. McDonald, the founder of this event, created it for one reason only.

"Kurvee came out of frustration from attending other shopping parties or girls night out events in Los Angeles, and not being able to find clothes for my body type," said McDonald. "Our mission is to create fun experiences and events for women with curves; which is most women. We are not singling out a specific size; our events cater to all women."

Vendors ranged from specialty boutiques, photographers, beauty brands, and plus size designers. Shoppers were treated to free makeup and eyelash applications, raffles, and sweet treats. Shopping at this event not only felt natural, but there was no sense of being judged.

"My favorite part of the event was seeing all of the women mix and mingle and the witnessing of new relationships that were created here.  While there was a lot of shopping going, there was just as much laughter, conversation and women genuinely having a great time," said McDonald when asked what the most memorable moment was.

Future plans for another Kurvee event can not be more anticipated.

"In the next couple of weeks we are going to start planning for our next shopping and beauty event," said McDonald. "And we have a couple other projects on the table.  More details coming soon!"

The Kurvee fashionistas of Los Angeles will be waiting.
