You hear about these lovely shopping events catering to the svelte Fashionista, surrounded by sweet shopping deals, samples, spa deals, and tantalizing drinks. Yeah- those ones. Those events where all the cute clothes that are sampled dare not reach above a size 4 and wonder, â€œWhat about me? â€œ â€œWhy am I excluded from this luxurious treatment?â€ â€œWhy only can I attend (if I dare) to shop the accessories, if I am lucky?”
These events leaving the most aspiring and bold Plus Size Curvy.Confident.Chic. Fashionistas feeling a bit defeated. But, NOT anymore!
