Fashion is such a fun and wonderful art, but it shouldn't be limited to skinny bitches!
Plus-sized women are fierce too, and think goodness it's recognized in the catwalk-world's newest holiday.
There will be plus-sized events in at least four cities, so listen up, divas! You may be in the right place.
1. If you're living the Sex and the City life in New York City, get ready for some Lane Bryant fun!
To kick off the Fall Fashion Week, LB will host an event Thursday, September 8 at their Fulton Street Store in Brooklyn. There they'll debut the new Tighter Tummy Technology (T3) pants. Not only that, but the stars from TLC’s Big Sexy will be present to promote a $500 gift card contest and a chance to be in a LB photoshoot. Did we mention free cocktails?
2. Now, if you live about 800 miles west of NYC, you're in luck too!
Chicago has CUPCAKES, CURVES, AND CLEAVAGE!!! This exclusive event will be hosted by Vive La Femme, Isabella Fine Lingerie, and Vaudezilla. Plus-sized women in the windy city are invited to shop through brand new Fall fashions, sign up for Bodacious Burlesque classes. All Chi-Towners will receive 20% off their Vive La Femme purchases. We're also assuming there will be lots of cupcakes — hopefully with buttercream frosting! Yummm.
3. Also, down in the Commonwealth, plus-sized Southern Belles can revel in fashion at Virginia's BeautyFull Boutique!
Alexandria will have a night of designers, vendors, and boutiques catering to fuller figures.
With fashion showcases from Ear Candy Accessories to PopUp Plus, plus lots of vintage/retro selections, this gem of an event is sure to please the Virginians! It will take place on N. Fayette St and of course there will be tons of drink and prizes!
4. As for our fellow LA fashionistas, we're pretty sure Lane Bryant also has something special planned up her sleeve for the West Coast FNO festivities at the Beverly Center.
So see! Fashion doesn't have to be simultaneous with size zeros!
We're all beautiful and we're all REAL, regardless of being a size 0 or a size 16!
