Weekend Edition: Full Figure Fashion Week Pt. 1

Happy Monday all!

First I want to apologize for my lack of posting last week.  I was in  NYC for  Full Figure Fashion Week and the Blogging While Brown conference, so needless to say I was pooped!  Last Wednesday, I was invited to the Lane Bryant Blogger Conference with several other awesome bloggers.  At the breakfast I finally got to meet Dani from DIYFATSION   (who is such a sweetie in person!), Meaghan from Little Lime Dress , Bella from Bella Styles and CeCe from the Big Girl Blog (you must check out her amazing blog!).  I also got to reconnect with the lovely Parker from Everyday Runway 365, the sweet Rebecca from The Plus Side of Me and bubbly Oliva from Wait Until the Sunset (who is THE life of the party lemme tell ya!). .

In the afternoon, Lane Bryant treated us to a delicious  lunch to discuss their plans for  their A/W collection.  They explained that they are  committed to  providing fashionable and trendy clothing to plus size women.  During the Q&A poriton of the presentation Lane Bryant was open to all the comments/suggestions  bloggers had about their line.  They gave us a sneak peek of their upcoming A/W 13 collection and I can say I’m truly excited about the direction they are taking.

I had a completely different outfit planned for the blogger conference but at the last minute  dress I wanted  to wear  didn’t fit (that’s what I get for not trying it on at the store!).  Luckily I packed  my Lane Bryant skinny jeans  so they saved the day!

Stay tuned for  more FFFWeek recaps this week!

How was your week/weekend?

Have a great day!

    Looks like you had a ball! I’m so glad the plus size fashion industry has a platform now. Been a long time coming. I love the yellow jeans on you. Time to do a little shopping, birthday coming up.

    Sounds like you had a load of fun! That’s exactly why I try EVERYTHING on before I buy it. My husband, however, is another matter. Even with shoes, he will just throw them on for two seconds in the shop and say “yeah they fit”… and then never get blisters.lol

    You must have had so much fun. It is even thrilling to read it. And of course you looked lovely. As ever.
