I simply cannot believe that what started out as just a way to inspire women to be their fashionable best by memorializing my own style in pictures and prose, has grown into a full-fledged mini movement of sorts in just two short years.
Today, NikkiFreeStyle turns 2 and I couldn’t be more prouder of how far this blog — my baby — has come in 730 days! It’s been fun and fabulous and fashionable and frustrating and F’d up at times, but it’s all been worth it.
I’ve graced the cover of a national women’s magazine, been named by several fashion sites and bloggers as a Fashionista To Watch, was a sponsor of few industry events, including the TCF Brunch Series and Style EXPO, and Full Figured Fashion Week, interviewed Eloquii’s Creative Director on Facebook Live, had a dress named after me, been a guest speaker and judge at several industry events ……
…… forged partnerships with brands and other bloggers, hosted one of only three ELOQUII trunk shows, and held a successful pop-up shop closet sale of my own. I also made a host of new friends with awesome people like Maui Bigelow, the editor of Phat Girl Fresh and Vee Kemp, @NaturelleBombshell.
It’s been a labor of love and I am forever grateful to those of you who have been on this journey with me! I am thankful for the all my successes with NikkiFreeStyle and look forward to continuing to inspire you, The #Freehive!
