It seems that some people out there think that because you are a certain size that its within their rights to poke fun, be rude and generally make an assumption that we are not within our rights to have feelings and answer back.
Well just to prove that the haters are wrong and we do care, we have two fantastic events coming up both in the North of our great country were we can unite and show our strength :0) .
The first is an event event called "Plus North" , its at a great location in Leeds called Aspire on the 7th of July. There are lots of plus sized retailers with such great brands as Simply Be, Evans , F&F Tescos, Benefit Cosmetics, including lots of others.
Together with a stream of bloggers and fashionites , its giving us the opportunity to discuss and debate plus sized fashion. There will be also be a goodie bag, prize draw and a catwalk put on by Simply Be of which I along with other bloggers will be appearing in.
More details here - http://plusnorth.weebly.com/ . Ticket price £5.00
The second is Liverpool Fashion week, a yearly event that is organized by Amanda Moss and her team at Lifestyle Magazine. The event runs from 15 - 22nd October and is being opened this year by the fantastic Sinitta, remember her from the 80s with such great hits as "So Macho" and "Toy Boy". No oh well guess I'm showing my age lol.
The Catwalk shows start with a bang with a lovely champagne reception on the 15th with the amazing Sinitta walking at the fabulous Leo Casino for Boohoo.com.
Through out the week you will see fashion shows galore, including some great fashion retailers such as Simply Be, Matalan, Wallis, New Look, Jacamo, Next and tons of others.
Well I am also very pleased to tell you all that once again your very own blogger has been picked together with my husband Paul, to model in Liverpool Fashion week. I will be modeling Simply Be wear and Paul Jacamo on the 19th October more details here. Liverpool Fashion Week. Ticket price from £10.00 - £50.00 depending on which night you go.
Please all try and make it to these events, we need to show the world that we do have feelings.
That we do want to look/be fashionable and healthy, and that we don't just sit there stuffing our faces and feeling sorry for ourselves.
Ta ta for now
