Vive La Femme!

Hey guys! So, today I got to go the Vive la Femme shopping event! I'm excited because I thought I wasn't able to make it but thankfully I was able to at the last minute. Vive la Femme, which is a plus-sized boutique located on the north side, was celebrating its 10th anniversary by allowing shoppers to recieve a generous 20% IGIGI clothing (which is uber cute btw)

Vive la Femme caters to women who range from a size 12 to a 24 and the clothes are gorgeous to boot! Normally, when plus-sized women go shopping and are lucky enough to find something in their size, it is usually not the most flattering piece of clothing. But, in this chic boutique, there are cute clothes for days!

Michelle, of Plus Fashion Week Chicago, played dress up and everything looked amazing on her! Also, Janeida, who is a part of the Blog Squad, had lots of luck with the clothes she tried on. Speaking of Janeida, I am so happy I finally got to meet her! We befriended each other on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, yet hadn't met, and boy was it a pleasure! She's such a beautiful and sweet girl. Be sure to check her out on Tumblr.

I also met a few other lovely ladies, Amber and Perry, who run Style Plus Curves and AlluringChi, respectively. I LOVE meeting new people! Especially bloggers because it so essential to be able to talk with other bloggers who you can relate to and even get tips from.

All in all, I had a great time! I didn't have a chance to snag any pics of myself, which is okay because my outfit was so last minute it was pretty casual. Buuuuuut, I did go to the movies with my Pa and family yesterday and I snapped a pic of myself (please excuse the lighting and terrible mirror!) Toodles!!

Oh! And while I've got you here, be sure to check out my post in the Style Gallery for Full Figured Magazine! I'll be contributing every Thursday so be to sure to stay on the look out!
