The Curvy Fashionista- "Wacoal for the Holidays!"

Yes- I am still a Fashion Editor for The Curvy Fashionista- Please check out the link/piece below on my trip to Wacoal's private fitting. I recently received a great package from them and I absolutely love the brand!

Uplift your Holiday with Wacoal

 Wacoal Full Figure featuring Asia Monet

Asia Monet for Wacoal

They say that it’s ‘better to give than to receive’. I say differently! This season treat yourself to something that will uplift your best assets and Holiday spirit! Say goodbye to Target brand braziers that leave those deadly battle wound marks on your shoulders and say hello to Wacoal-the apparel line from heaven. Personally, I have never been a fan of bra’s or very particular about undergarment shape wear. Although voluptuous, I typically find something and ‘make it work’.

When asked to attend Wacoals’ 2012 private viewing at the Sunset Tower Hotel I, of course, underestimated the brand and its elegance. Not aware of the bit of embarrassment I was getting ready to undergo, I agreed to a fitting . Transforming my target brand bra into the ‘Retro Chic’ full busted underwire Wacoal bra was a moment I will never forget. Instantly my mood and ‘breast mojo’ changed- I was feeling in control while still being able to showcase my style.

I think one of the problems with lingerie companies is that, sometimes, they forget about the customer. Just because we have larger (or smaller) breast doesn’t mean we want to wear boring bra’s. Wacoal solved this heightend assumption- allowing their consumer to be flirty,conservative,bold,elegant or even a bit on the wild side, Wacaol has undergarments for all individuals.
Dedicated to providing beautiful,well fitting quality intimate apparel, Wacoal is designed to enhance womens beauty and self image. Featured on The View, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Ellen DeGeneres show, Entertainment Tonight and NBC Today, Wacoal is dedicated to spreading the word about the benefits of great fitting undergarments.

Launching B’tempted by Wacoal in 2009, Wacoal is now one of the world’s largest intimate apparel companies.With headquarters in Japan, Wacoal’s contributes their heightened technology and design esthetic both to European and Japanese heritage.

Hey loves! I know- I am not the greatest at updating my weblog. So sorry! You will be happy to know that all of the time spent 'not updating' did not go straight to the trashcan. So much has happened since LAFW which I display on my Facebook page ( please go check it out :!/pages/Nyvia-Weathersby/206611689372699). I have been in talks with MTV in regards to some upcoming projects as well as a few entertainment fashion sites( cross your fingers!). Most recently I have been running through LA on a variety of different shoots with VIBE Magazine and some awesome fashion savvy professionals.

Bare with me as I try my best to update this 'thang'. As of yet, I just completed a fashion segment with Celebrity Stylist, Chris Mannor,Angela Simmons and JoyRich.Despite the minor glitches, I enjoyed working with such a diverse group of people- Myself and Chris came up with the concept of the segment in about two days. Images below!

Balance.Real Friends.Where are they?

Loves! In the mist of covering events for LA Fashion Week ( Vibe Magazine/The Curvy Fashionista),Tora Bedgood, an amazing Music Journalist hosted a pre-bday party at Rush Lounge!Can you say ..'FUN'? Also one of my very best girlfriends, I made it my personal duty to make her day as amazing as possible. Needless to say, I missed a few events on this day in  return.

Despite the flexible definition of 'friendship' and the many careless ways it is tossed around nowadays, I can truly say that this woman is my 'real' friend.We met a little over a year ago when I was assisting on a shoot for Angela Simmons. I suppose you can say it was 'love at first sight'?


As LA Fashion Weekend comes to a close, I will be updating via Twitter & posting a few cool looks on here.Until then- Happppyy birthday Tora B!You can follow her on twitter @Charlie_Danger !

In Social Media class.. Socializing? ( Do not try this at home)

Aside from trying to change the world one fashion article at a time, I also enjoy going to school.So.. for the last 3 1/2 years I have been attending Woodbury University with a focus in Communications and Fashion.

The best part about school is it's social construct in a classroom: you never really know what you're going to get ( Life is like..a box of chocolate?). In this particular case 'you never know what your going to get when putting a Power 106 fashionista (Jess) and a Vogue inherited Journalist ( That would be me)  in a Social Media class...together.'

The outcome? We "Get Social". Basically, although extremely long, this course is doing wonders for my communication strategies and social media love affairs.

Want to know more about Jess? Go to !

Deemed:The Curvy Fashionista!


As I prep for the Los Angeles arrival of Bougie Magazine and the shoot for Dope Magazine, I have recently been adopted into the Curvy Fashionista family as one of the many amazing Fashion Editors! Bringing both a personal and professional admiration to my 'to-do' list, The Curvy Fashionista is one of the most highly proclaimed plus size fashion sites in the webworld. Owner of T.C.F and Style Director of Plus Model Magazine, Marie Leggette, has been a great inspiration for myself and fellow fashion addicts.

I am so very honored and excited to be working more closely with T.C.F!

"Another Fashion Book" feature!

Nyvia Weathersby is, arguably, one of Los Angeles’ youngest industry professionals. Working with a eclectic batch of publications,celebrities and fashion houses, Nyvia was destined to be a fashion savvy Journalist at a early age. Starting off at the age of 15, Nyvia had her own column in her hometown’s newspaper and shortly after that became one of the fashion editors of Nick Cannon’s teen magazine,Celebrity High. Freelancing for over ten publications since then, Nyvia has been on the Hollywood scene ever since. Rather covering a Kardashian event or grooving with Jason Derulo at his past listening event, Nyvia reflects her style of choice in a perceptive and unpretentious manner.Working with influential celebrities that range from Angela Simmons to Sam Sarpong, Nyvia still finds time to balance her many talents. Most recently finishing up her contract with Vogue Magazine,Nyvia continues to freelance and work with Vibe Magazine and Los Angeles based celebrities. You can view some of her works and style blog through

Thank you again for the amazing recognition!

Hollywood runs into.. Malibu?

The last few weeks have been a combination of Toronto Fashion Week madness and publication hopping. This weekend I covered the Miss Malibu 2012 crowning event which included my love Kristina G. from E! News, Aubrey O'day, OK Magazine and a host of other influential individuals and artists.

Aside from the fact that it was freezing cold, the ceremony was very beautiful. Held on what seemed to be the highest mountain in Malibu, the view was extraordinary!

Congradulations to Miss Malibu 2012!
