Plus North Leeds – My First Big Plus-Size Event

My First Big Plus-Size Fashion Event

This weekend I had an absolute amazing time at one of my first big plus-size blogger events: Plus North. It was a really fun, fashion & plus-size filled weekend which involved meeting lot’s of amazing ladies.

The Plus-Size Runway Shows

One of the big highlights were definitely the fashion shows in which Ann Harvey, Yours Clothing, Topsy Curvy, Simply Be, Curvissa, So Fabulous and Evans were showing a selection of their key pieces on some very fabulous plus-north visitors and plus-size blogger babes. It was absolutely amazing to see so many confident women showing off how comfortable felt in their bodies and showing off their confidence and love for themselves, an absolutely inspiring event!

The Exhibitors

All the brands that were showing off their newest trends in the runway shows also had little stalls at this event where we had a chance to check out their upcoming Autumn – Winter Collection up close and I have to say, I already have a by far too long wish-list.

Although some of the real gems of the stalls were actually those that had not been part of the shows.

Curvy Kate had brought some of their amazing & sexy bras with her and conducted tons of bra fittings and delivering some amazing uplifts. Chunky Cat Cuddler showed off some great and imaginative jewellery. I also finally saw Nicky Rockets T-Shirts up close.

Here I also learned about a new and interesting way of how to buy high class beauty products: Cohorted. They are offering each week 4 different products, the kind of product you would like to treat yourself to but might be just a bit out of your budget, to bring them to you cheaper due to the power of group buying.

Keep checking back I will give you a closer look at some of the exhibitors and their products over the next weeks, especially of those I could not resist and now call my own.

Showing Off My Little Makeover

Plus-North was a great opportunity for me to show off my style, my new hair and outfit. Before coming to the event I had basically gone through a whole little makeover.

I had my beloved Bettie Page fringe re-trimmed by Nicky from “Having A Hairmare?“. The benefit brow bar had taken care of my eyebrows . I had a complete home made hair colour makeover. If you follow me on twitter of facebook you might have already seen that I recently had a relatively extreme hair colour makeover thanks to some ebay ordered peroxide and Bleach London’s Tangerine Dream. And lastly I had a completely new outfit, which I had ordered specifically for plus-north using their next day delivery.

Finally meeting all those lovely ladies

But ultimately the best thing about plus north was to finally meet so many amazing & lovely blogger ladies, that are so often on my screen, finally in real life.  Obviously there was no way around to take some of those obligatory selfies:
