Great News!

Hey guys!

I am proud to say that I am now a part of Plus Fashion Week Chicago's Blog Squad!! I know you guys are like what is that? First, a little background information on Plus Fashion Week Chicago (PFW Chicago) is necessary, huh? 

PFW Chicago is a five day fashion event that focuses on plus-sized fashions. Their mission is to work with designers to make plus-sized fashion more available to consumers. The five day event will take place between October 24th and October 28th 2012. 

Now let me brief you on a few of the wonderful promotions and events PFW Chicago will be hosting. The first upcoming event is Shopping & Style with Viva la Femme (click the link to register for tickets!)  This event takes place on June 21st from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. to celebrate Viva la Femme Boutique's 10th anniversary. This boutique has been catering to plus-size women (sizes 12-24) in the Chicago land area since 2002! The store will also be revealing Igigi's new summer line and all who attend will be given a 20% discount on Igigi items! I am SO looking forward to this event and I hope you all are too! We must embrace and promote quality plus-size fashions. 

The next event is exciting also! This event is called Plus IS Fit! and is geared towards encouraging plus sized gals to get fit TOGETHER! Four Zumba instructors will be offering classes free-of-charge (you heard me right!) every fourth Sunday of the month from June until August. More details will be released soon, in the meantime you can visit this link

And let me not forget about Appease Inc. which is a wonderful company that offers luxurious spa services and they are also sponsors of, guess who, PFW CHICAGO! And because of that, Appease Inc. is offering perks to members and fans of Plus Fashion Week including complimentary 60-minute massages ($45 value). A portion of the proceeds will go to the Y-Me National Breast Cancer Organization, a charity sponsor of Plus Fashion Week. Appease Inc. is also offering PFW fans in home massages for $49.99. For more information, call 630-550-3764 Coupon code: plusismore

Needless to say, I am so excited to be partnering with this wonderful company! It is refreshing to see people push for the rights of quality plus-sized fashion to be just as available as main range fashion. It's been a long time coming and I can feel it in my bones that this industry is about to BLOW UP!! (no pun intended). 

So, with that being said, I will be reporting on here from time to time about the wonderful goings on of PFW Chicago and I hope that you guys take part in the movement as well :) So stay tuned!
