Howdy. Today I will be telling you about the fun times I had in London at the weekend! (before I got trapped in the snow)
On Saturday I wore my gorgeous maroon dress that I posted about recently, here I am on the train wearing it with my grey scarf and my (amazing) new headphones.
And where was I going I hear you ask?
Plus London 2! A blogger event for plus-sized ladies, all of whom were LOVELY. After using twitter to frantically find out where I should have been and to locate the fantastic Sara,we arrived at the Anna Scholz studios where we got to peruse lots of lovely dresses...
I wanted the blue one so much. That and the purple snake skin dress (that Anna is wearing) got tons of attention. The stuff was great quality and all different styles - retro, sexy workwear, beachwear, wrap dresses - lots to choose from.
Blogger happiness at seeing pretty dresses...
More reasons for blogger happiness...
Then we had a Q&A session with Anna. Although it was less Q&A than us going "we love you and think you're great and oh you agree with us that everything else is crap can you make us EVERYTHING we want please please please?". Anna was very cool. She basically admitted that she chose the best fabrics and spent more money because she wanted to, and she could, and she liked the expensive things best and wanted them for us. She has a size 18 studio model and made the snake skin dress by scanning in actual snake skin. Awesome.
And some last pictures...
After that it was all a blur. An unorganised practice modelling session (I got roped in when a model dropped out. And no, they didn't have to beg me very much!), followed by the actual catwalk show at the evening event. While bits of it were good and I had great fun playing 'who can get down to their underwear fastest' with the other lovely girls, my main opinion of the whole modelling bit is covered in Claire's open letter.
But apart from that the evening was great, so thanks Claire, very much.
I had a proper mini photoshoot done (can't wait to see the pics!), a bra fitting by Elomi - so sweet and professional, and I got a free bra and the BEST FITTING knickers ever, amazing cupcakes by Wendy and just lovely mad chats with people all round. I really want to stay in touch with the fantastic people I met there, so girls if you don't already, follow me on Twitter.
Lastly, I wore my Henry Holland cherry print dress which I've shown so many times I'll just put one little picture up.
What a great day. I'll catch you up on my ever changing outfits tomorrow!
