All the pieces I am literally buying from Premme

I have already talked to you about the epic coolness that is Premme.

I was just getting my life back together once they wrecked me with their literal amazing drop this past summer. And then they had the nerve to drop their fall line, and I a, wrecked once again. Shout out to full figured beauties that really get it; that curvy girls don't want clothes they have to wear. We want clothes that we want to wear.

So here are the autumn pieces that have me completely slayed probably until their winter drop.

The Women In Media Conference

WIM Global
By now, you know that I am a girl power proponent and a raging women's equality buff. So when I was blessed with the opportunity to link up with today's prestigious feature, you know I was too hype.

Today, we are talking the Women In Media (WIM) Global, a collective of college educated millennial media professionals and business owners here in Philly with a global focus on telling the story of women through women by women. At it's core, WIM Global was founded to "empower, equip and encourage women from all walks of life who are in the media field or seek to enter it." 

WIM Global's goal of "driving diversity and unity within the media industry" has led to five successful years of events, gatherings, and of course, the highly anticipated and often sold out annual conferences. These conferences have drawn prominent women in communication and media such as Stephanie Renee (900 AM WURD), Dyana Williams and Lady B of Radio One, Loraine Ballard Morrill of iHeart Radio, Tracey Davidson and Christine Maddela of NBC10, Anika Hawkins of 6 ABC, Mina Say What of Power 99 FM, Kharisma McIlwaine of CBS/CW, Shaniece Cole of MTV, Desiree Peterkin-Bell, the Former Director of Communications for the City of Philadelphia) and many others.

WIM Global
And this year, I will be in attendance (I'll be the girl in the back soaking in all the good vibes and sisterhood.) 

This year's conference theme is Advocacy & Leadership! Be Seen. Be Heard. Be BOLD. In alignment with this theme, WIM will be honoring the renown poet, author, and activist Sister Sonia Sanchez with its prestigious ArĂȘte of Media Award, an award given to those most outstanding women within media who have demonstrated both professional excellence and resolute support for the continued progression of women in media. This in addition to a full day of expert led workshops, break out sessions, bonding and the like...

To say I cannot wait is a major understatement.

Want to know more about the Women In Media Conference and Initiatives? Check out WIM's site and follow along on their social. And as always, you can follow along on my Instagram to catch bits and bites from the day.
