Plus North 2014!

Hey there Munchkins!

Sorry I have been a bit off radar, madness has continued in the life of Plus Size & Proud, and last weekend was no exception!  I attended my very first plus size event which was Plus North.  This is a premier plus size fashion event catering for plus size bloggers and plus size female followers of fashion in general…. !  This year’s event was organised by an amazing team, Emma, Gemma, Kim and Toni, and they did us proud!

If you didn’t get to the event this year, or weren’t aware of it, make sure you keep a look out for next year….

Not only was I able to attend, but I was also very lucky to be a model for Curvissa on the day as well!  Thanks to Charlie, here are a couple of pics of me strutting my stuff!

Gutted I didn’t get the old booby-doos measured by the www.curvykate.com team!

To get a better look at what I modelled for them go here and here, and do stop by What Laura Loves as her new Vlog post actually includes the fashion show and little old me!

Unfortunately, I didn’t feel I saw as much or talked to as many people as I wanted, and I think it was because I was somewhat overwhelmed by it all on the day, being surrounded by such confidence, beauty and general awesomeness in all the amazing ladies (and some gentlemen) who were there. Pics are fairly limited on the day, and I know that this has been the case for most of us bloggers, but I managed to get a couple and I have tried to recreate outfits since I have returned to try and show you what I wore at Plus North 2014.IMG_20140903_200754_editPlus North ’14 Pre-Party with the uber gorgeous Hannah, my adopted daughter for the weekend.  I am wearing Dolores Doll in red, originally from Collectif, but I struck a deal with Hannah for hers and I know it is going to be one of my fave wardrobe items! My Day of the Dead flower crown courtesy of Off With Her Head Millinery (as if you had to ask).  Be sure to check Hannah’s blog and Social Media to find out all about what she wore at PN14!

The Sunday was aimed at Bloggers with workshops on Social Media and how to optimise our blogs on the internet, but unfortunately I had to head off to get home so Hubs could go to work (and I still managed to be late back, but that’s another story…), but I did make the clothes swap which had been organised and here is one of my fave finds courtesy of the stunning Jane, M&S navy and white stripe jersey dress in a size 22….. excuse the VBO!  Not sure what went on with my phone camera today either…. I look like I am surrounded by smog!!!!

I did encounter a few hiccups over the weekend, but I didn’t let it stop me from having the most amazing time, and one of the highlights for me of the whole weekend was getting to give this amazing, beautiful inside and out, lady a big booby hug finally…. Leah!

    1. I know, it is an amazing pic! The whole weekend was a blur for me, didn’t speak to the brands like I wanted to, felt like I was in a dream most of the time… Lol! Not the best post either, but if guess when you are in a fog, what can you say… Lol! Loved giving you a squeeze xxxxx
