Major perk of a fabulous community if having access to hair and makeup guru's like our girl Dreama to come do us up right before the event which is why I am sporting some lovely locks. I can't pull of curls like that on my own. I've tried.
My outfit was a major labor of love. I finished it a month ago, when we set our original date but because of powers beyond us we had to reschedule, and have been dying to put the whole look together ever since. I wanted to stand out and really have a statement piece. I mean if I am going to an event as a designer to showcase my products I better show up wearing something pretty fabulous. So I went for a bold look wearing a full length gray lace dress with long scalloped sleeves and a high neck like the lace crop top I have in my shop. Pairing with some bold black studded boots I got from Torrid I kept my accessories minimal.
The night was in full effect and we had a greater turn out than we had even planned for! Portland's fat fashion community came out in style for this and I love the diversity of styles I saw. It was great to introduce people to new local designers Rita Hudson- Evault- Hubris Designs and Alyson Clair with Alyson Claire Vintage. Some new flavor to bring to the plus size fashion world and supporting local too! And thanks to Pocho's Cosas for being our event photographer. Because of him we have some great photos to look back on from this night.
