An Evening Spent Gussied Up at Gussied Up!

Hey Everyone,

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to attend a mix-and-mingle event at Gussied Up (a fantastic plus size boutique here in Toronto that I have written about on here before). Whitney Thompson, winner of America's Next Top Model Cycle 10 (the only plus-size winner to date), was there to promote a new clothing line with which she is affiliated called Allistyle. So I got to meet her, as well as reconnect with a few familiar faces from the Toronto plus size fashion community, which was great! Here are a few pictures from the evening.

All in all, it was a great evening spent with old friends and new, and a wonderful continuation of the affirmation that the Toronto (and Canadian) plus size fashion scene is heating up fast! Thanks for a lovely night, ladies!

Looks like a great event! Gussied Up is just around the corner from my parents' house and I walked past there a couple weeks ago and wished I could go that evening! I'll have to check out the store next time I'm home.

Okay I don't watch Fashion shows. But please don't tell me that that woman beside you is a "plus size" model!

Well, she was a bit more "plus size" when she won ANTM. She's lost a bit of weight since then. But I know a few companies that would hire her as a plus size model for a campaign. :S

This is one of the best posts that I’ve ever seen; you may include some more ideas in the same theme about Out Size Fashion Clothing. I’m still waiting for some interesting thoughts from your side in your next post.

Marigrace is an inspiration. She was able to make jewelry with her shaky hands... the result of her bipolar meds. Unbelievable. Congrats!
