Out and About: The Nordstrom Encore Fall Preview at South Coast Plaza
If you have been following the blog, I had shared with you that I was hosting a Fall Preview at the Nordstrom at South Coast Plaza! Well, this past Saturday, in the midst of the Anniversary Sale, we did it!
Before I go on, I have to thank Plus Model Magazine and Nordstrom for helping me bring my vision into reality! Many moons ago, I thought why haven’t we, as plus size women, had some of the really fun and cool fashion events in store? Then I thought of one of the brands whose commitment to the plus size woman has been unwavering! Enter in Nordstrom. Then I thought, what is a shopping experience if not at South Coast Plaza in the heart of Orange County?
So on Saturday, we played dress up, played in a photo booth, sipped and nibbled on delights, all while shopping to the season’s best deals on the trends coming for fall!
I presented 15 looks on three models (size 16 and 18) in which I had the chance to put together myself! Geeked!
I was really excited to see a few familiar faces in attendance from Jen Wilder of Cult of Cali, Ashley from Ashley Nell Tipton, Chenese from Plus Model Radio, Marcy from Marie Claire’s Hello Style: Big Girl in a Skinny World, and bloggers Ivory from Ivory Jinelle and Alison from Curvy Girl Chic! The LA Times was there? WORD!
In addition to some familiar faces, I was also excited to see a few readers and followers of the blog! THANK YOU SOOO much for coming out!
After the show, I answered a few questions from some of the attendees, gave out tons of hugs, and thanked my fam bam who trekked all the way from Riverside to see and support me!
