Ebony Walker, originally from Richmond, VA , knew at an early age that she wanted to do something big in life. For years she was told she was beautiful and she should be on television. Never taking it seriously, she continued to "live life" the way society thought was right. Settling down, getting married and having kids became her realty. After years of the same thing, day in and day out, Ebony stepped out on faith and started pursuing what her heart desired. She googled full figured events near her and made it her business to be seen. She attended her first event in Baltimore,MD. Curves Rock Weeked which was sure to help her meet the "it" people in the fashion industry of DMV. After winning the amateaur runway walk, there was no stopping her. Never being shy of the camera, she started booking with well known photographers to build her portfolio. She showed these photos online and became a hit.
Ebony hopes to inspire all women to go after their dreams and be comfortable in their skin no matter their age. She is truly and example that beauty is ageless. At 33 years old, she is just starting to really live life. Her favorite quote is " Confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can wear". She lives by those words each and everyday.

For the past 11-years, I've been building multiple streams of income and obtaining wealth through ownership. I've spoken with several groups of women about pursuing their passion and streaming their dreams. Some listened, started and stopped, others made excuses and turned a blind eye, while just a few stuck it out and are now on track to earning passive streams of income for themselves.
Now, I'm back on my weekly podcast talking about how to start the process of creating passive income and the importance of doing it now rather than later. We've entered into a new industry and most people are not even aware of it. E-commerce is here to stay and changing the way we live our daily lives. We're going to discuss this world and how you can benefit from it using simple technology and the many platforms out there.
Women around the world can listen to our podcast by streaming or phoning into our live show. We'll engage the audience by chatting in the chat room and taking their questions on air. Don't worry, if you've missed it, we'll have it as an archive file on the main show page.
Learn how you can to take positive steps towards a brighter financial future!

Rose Law, winner of our first Urban Thick Full Figure Fashion Week Sponsorship Contest. We spoke about her in a previous post entitled "Meet Our #FFFWeek Sponsorship Winner, Rose Law!". It was such a pleasure meeting this hard working young lady. We believe she has a promising future as a plus size model.
We spoke with Rose on our podcast and learned that she struggled with her body image growing up. Not only was she taller than most girls her age, she also had bigger hips and curves. You can hear how she managed these challenges while learning how to utilize her body to overcome bullies and other peer issues.
Urban Thick will continue keep in touch with Rose and her career. She is actively working as a runway model wile seeking other modeling opportunities in the D.C. area. The great lesson Rose left us with was, the very thing people may tease you about, may be the same thing that makes you successful. Good luck Rose, see you on the runway!
LET YOUR CURVES BE HEARD

If you take care of the things you have, you'll never go without the things you need.
I received an email from a customer asking how to take care of a sweater she purchased from our store. I offered her this advice. Place the item inside a light weight laundry bag, choose the gentle wash cycle in cold water, and lay flat until dry. She was grateful for the advice and hopefully she's still enjoying her light blue twist style Ralph Lauren sweater today.
Buying and selling clothes from a consignment store is a smart way to shop. Many people think that pre-owned clothes are dirty,stained, or smelly but that's far from the truth. Most of our Sellers have their items professionally cleaned before shipping them to us. These and other misconceptions cause people to miss out of huge savings and awesome buys.
At Urban Thick we promise our customers that they are buying a quality item. In order to keep our promise we take every item we get in through a vigorous process. Only after several inspections, taking measurements, photographing, and writing a detailed description do we post our items for sale. You can read some of our customers' feedback experiences here. So the next time you're looking for something unique and cute to wear, take a look at our consignment shop, you'll be pleasantly surprised!
