indsey Saunders has been around music her entire life and can’t remember a time when she wasn’t singing. She recalls a story about how, when she was a child, her father (one of her biggest musical influences) would sit crisscross on the floor and let her sit on his lap to strum the cords while he played James Taylor melodies. Now she has released a CD and her music is available for download on iTunes. Graduating high school this year, Lindsey has already accomplished so much! Not only has Lindsey made singing her life, but she has become a well-known Colorado musician who performs "Acoustic Pop.” For Lindsey, music is the perfect outlet to express her thoughts and emotions. When asked to describe how she felt about her CD release, only one word came to mind; blessed. While she acknowledges that she has worked hard at her music since middle school, she also admits she was “in the right places, at the right time, with the right people.” When it comes to nerves, she like to leave hers just the way they are, explaining that it just means she cares about her performances. When Lindsey performs, she likes to be comfortable, stating that, “there is nothing like wearing heels and having a guitar strapped to your back.” Likewise, she explains how she wants her music to speak for itself and doesn’t like to wear anything too flashy. Lindsey’s style can be stated as comfortable, with a bit of edge. She is usually seen in baggier styled jeans with a tighter, form-fitting top (currently she is into flannel tops). Some of her favorite items include her black combat boots and her array of beanies. Recently, style wise, she excitedly went on about how she has gotten into studding her clothes. She explains how she bought some pronged pyramid studs and has been applying them to everything from her shorts to belts. Lindsey's Favorite Quote- “ D o n ’ t a s k wh a t th e wo rl d

n eed s. Ask wh a t m a ke s you com e a l i ve , a n d g o d o i t. B e ca u se wh a t th e worl d n e e d s i s p e op l e wh o h a ve com e a l i ve . ” – Howard Thurman pg 9

Each model had unique make-up, hair, accessories, and design accents that were individually tailored to each look. Hair and make-up varied from subtle and simple to artistic and expressive looks. The opening look was a shimmering, sand dollar-textured, one shoulder floor-length gown with red jewels adorning the shoulder nicely paired with dangling red earrings; and a cream and tan zebra trim at the bottom of the ensemble adding to the complete presentation. In addition to the meticulous details, Barrera International excels in the area of tailoring. Every piece in his spring 201 3 collection was tailored with divine perfection. Continuing with the shimmering, sand dollar-textured fabric, the fifth look was a stunning, turtleneck, long-sleeve styled evening gown with red jewels accenting the wrist and cascading down from the neck to the center of the gown. Additionally, the sand dollar jewel accented gown opened up at the bottom revealing a red lining that made the ensemble a true show-stopping piece. The ninth look was a sexy, long-sleeve, gold embodied, floral romper mini dress with bubbled wrist accents. Additional noted looks included a cobalt blue chiffon blouse paired with a black skirt and silver sequins and a long floor-length halter black and silver sequin dress with a plunging back.

The Full­Figured Fashion Column For Condfident Curves Author: Christina Waheed

Models: Christina Waheed & Viki Skull

The Curvy Coloradan:

Icomplimentary n this issue for the curvy Coloradan, we have a variety of fun, trendy, and clothes for curvy women! Anything from long-sleeved sweaters, to

short-sleeved sweaters, to collared button-ups and dresses! The colder months in Colorado are so sporadic that you have to keep a variety of clothing at arm’s length. It may be 75 degrees one day and 30 the next. Layering is your best friend here in Colorado, but too many layers can make you look horribly frumpy! Here are some ideas and tips that will keep you warm and fashionable this season.

Feeling Confident Is The Key:

Looking confident is a lot different than feeling confident. You may be wearing the cutest dress in the world, but feeling uncomfortable in it. This could be because your personal confidence is lacking, which is a terrible feeling. Life as a curvy girl can be tough in Colorado, and becoming a confident one, is a process. So, here are some tips to get you going so you can look and feel great this holiday season. Feeling confident starts with accepting yourself for who you are. Loving yourself and your body is the first step. Beauty comes from within, and it's very easy to tell if someone doesn't feel beautiful inside by how they present themselves. Don’t let that be you, not anymore! Yes, knowing fashion is a plus, but confidence is the best and sexiest accessory you can possibly wear!

Take This With You:

If you get anything out of my column, I hope it's the idea that beauty starts from within. So, my curvy girls, all I can leave you with is this: take it one day at a time, tell yourself daily-“if I love myself, would I do this?”—make beneficial changes, be happy, laugh, stay positive, forgive, and let loose! If you slip up here and there, don’t beat yourself up, love yourself anyways, and still accept yourself for who you are, even if it's not who you thought you'd be. Observe what kind of person you are, and make yourself a priority over everything and everyone. Focus on you, your goals, your health, and your future. All these steps will help you show your beauty on the outside. Remember that you are confident, beautiful, lovely, and curvy, that's what makes true beauty.

Viki Skull, is a 12/14 (the lower end of plus sizes). Being comfortable and confident are the number one priority. Wearing a long sweater, tight black leggings, and any type of boots are a simple and easy way to look good!

No matter what anyone may tell you, print is IN! Print is always sexy, flattering, and even slimming! Do not be afraid, remember patterns are your friend! Button-up collared tops are also very in, chiffon/see-through button-ups are stylish and sexy--showing off your curves but making you feel confident and comfortable!

Having the sides of your top or sweater a different color is always slimming! Especially if its a darker color. Rock the long sweater this season, they make you feel sassy but comfortable!

Layer's and tiers are always good for the curvy girl! Any skinny jeans with flats and a top always go together! Try to match flats with top, its never bad to have a variety of flats!

pg 21

Sweaters are so fun, don't be afraid to wear them fitted. Show off your curves and make your outfit pop with some sassy boots!

We can't always wear black.Tan's and blues are always calming and different right? Color brings out femininity! And don't be afraid to get some subtle, neutral but trendy, tan shoes! Showing confidence is about being comfortable, but it's also about adding that one thing to your outfit to make it stand out! I thought these heels were so ugly on the shelf, but I tried them on and they are just too cute! Always try things on before you judge them, ladies, you never know what you'll miss out on!

Sweaters, skinny jeans, and any boot, whether high heel boot or not, is an easy way to show your curves and feel comfy! There are many new styles of jumpsuits out there. This one is cute, but will definitely need to be worn with a shawl or sweater and some boots, because it does get cold here in Colorado! Always wear your jumpsuit with a belt, it adds that perfect touch!

pg 22

Again, throw some color into the mix. We all know that December is cold, but that doesn't mean we should resort to wearing black all winter long! I'm not saying don't ever wear black, just don't wear it every day! Browns and greens are cute, simply wear a lace cami under a botton-up and some high heel loafers and you're good to go. This style is trendydressy-casual. This outfit is simple but modern and stylish. The professional look is very sexy and sassy. If you're dressing to impress, throw on a blazer and you're set. Pants with patterns are also very complimentary and fun as well! Don't be afraid of these skinny leg pants; this outfit would not be so cute if the legs were flaring or wide.

We can't forget dresses this season! This dress is simple but festive, and the pattern is beautiful! The high waste is usually always flattering, especially if it is a dress that flows. Match your belt to your flats or heels and it pulls the outfit together, making you feel sassy and ready for the holidays!

This chiffon dress is so comfortable to wear. The brown, tan, and red colors are no where near boring; and the style is new! The Ruffle edgings are cute and the high waste makes it fall onto your curves, ever so perfectly.

Don’t Miss This Opportunity! Colorado may be termed “the skinny state”, but there are still many plus-size men and women here. As mentioned before, there's a huge market for plus-size clothing companies here! If you want DenVhere to help bring your clothing line/company some curvy Colorado attention, contact DenVhere Magazine ASAP. We are planning to throw a plus-size fashion show sometime early next year! We strive to help the community grow, especiallyColorado as a whole. With every show we do, we also try to give back to the community, whether it's for a cause or collecting Christmas toys for children who have been abused. We find a way to give back, along with helping businesses.

If you would like to throw an event, have your clothing featured in the next issue or be a part of our next fashion show, contact us!

O ne ofthe many things that DenVhere Magazine does is help and host community fashion shows. At DenVhere, we pride ourselves on helping local designers get their clothing and mission out there! Every year, Editor-in-ChiefGeorgez Dabit hosts and runs a fashion show for Front Range Community College, which DenVhere Magazine sponsors. This year, we had four designers, which is the most we've had at Front Range!

Not only did we have designers, but a singing performance by this issue's cover model, Lindsey Saunders! It isn’t just about fashion either, we not only like to raise money for different causes around Colorado, but we try to help wherever we can. For this fashion show, we asked that guests bring a toy for children who have been abused and we collected quite a bit! It’s always a nice sight to see people come together as a community and support each other. Lindsey Saunders

Aside from that, the show had a great variety of awesome fashion. Each designer had their own style and it is very interesting and fun to see the new modern styles ofColorado 2012. The performance by Lindsey Saunders was fresh and fun. Lindsey has such a great voice and unique sound. She played her guitar and you could feel the passion flow through the audience. It was an awesome opening for the show!

Stay tuned for our next fashion show!


This designer, ECO J’ADORE (French, meaning love for nature), by Rinchen Sherpa was a very creative, economical, and brave designer. “Going green” can be tricky, but Rinchen made it possible, yet fashionable. These bags are durable and used by recycled material. Not only are they durable, but they're very modern and “in” with today's fashion. With small acts like making your college book bag or tote an eco-friendly one, you not only help our local community, but the planet, too!

Best Front Range ShowYet!



Jme’s Touch, by Jaymie Alexander, is a great collection for many types ofwomen. There were tons ofholiday dresses, business attire, and sexy outfits that would make heads turn. This designer definitely knows what's appealing to women. Jme’s Touch is, “Sent from above from me to you for God” Jaymie said, when I met her the night ofthe show. This collection is hot for this year's cold winter!

Acire’s Lavish Delicacy line was elegant but sassy! These dresses have a unique style about them; they show a women’s feminine side for sure. I could tell the designer, Erica Vallejo, was aiming for modern day, old-fashioned feel, making one feel sexy and classy.

pg 31

Gabriela Designs, by Gabriela Martinez, also has a variety ofclothing to fit many different types ofbodies and ages. Her style is hot and trendy, but also brings back some older styles into her collection. Designs like peplum, the new hot-cut for dresses! She has anything from one-piece pant suits that are very “in� right now, to male vests, holiday dresses, and everyday wear. I could see her aim was to target every type ofwoman, no matter what age. Her clothing popped down the runway, and you could feel a confidence in the air. Gabriela's designs have already been seen on many runways in Colorado, but that's certainly not the last we've seen of her designs! She can also be seen in this issue on our Fashion 4 a Cause page!
