It's been so busy around here, but trust me, I am still blogging, and still definitely working with other brands! Just because I have started my own initiatives does not mean that I don't support others. I strongly believe that plus size women NEED variety, and that more stores won't hurt the industry here, but help it. They will make more women interested in and invested in fashion. I don't shop exclusively from my own store, and I don't expect my customers to. Women love and need variety! I still want to bring you guys all the (unbiased) news about plus size fashion here in Toronto and in Canada generally because I think it's still hugely important, and I want women to be educated and informed about all of their options. It's why I got involved in the plus size industry here, and that hasn't changed one bit. I am still here to help you look and feel great in any way that I can. it has been a crazy couple of months, but I wanted to finally get around to posting about the event I attended with Addition Elle and EDIT by Jeanne Beker back in November.
It was a really lovely event at the Hotel Germain near the ACC. We got to meet and chat with Jeanne Beker, former host of the program Fashion Television, who told us more about herself and how she got involved in the fashion industry. We got a preview of her collection which will be offered at Addition Elle in the Spring. It is gorgeous line with really fresh, beautiful Spring colours like mint and coral. There was one leatherette jacket in mint that I fell head over heels for! Models came out in looks from the line, and the fit and fashion of each was totally on-point. I'm very excited about the collection and you should totally check it out.
