Today Show Coverage of British Plus Size Fashion Week

I know I've seriously slacked on getting my coverage up of British Plus Size Fashion Weekend, I am SOOO sorry! When I got back home Monday around midnight, like a total novice world traveler, I hit the grown running with meetings and work planned for Portland Fashion Week and didn't schedule any down time to readjust. I'm just now catching my breath from this week! I can't wait to tell you all about my adventures in London, but wanted to give you a quick update if you hadn't seen it yet - The Today Show covered BPSFW, which is so beyond exciting for the team and everyone involved. I am so proud of Rianne Ward and Remi Ray for pulling off an empowering and fashionable weekend and putting their money where their mouth was. They had press and attendees from every corner of the globe and I can't even tell you how electric the energy was. So so very cool.

More pictures and stories coming soon! For now, here's the clip from the Today Show where I was quoted about my views on the event and shopping as a plus size woman.

Shoe Quest

I have been on a shoe hunting frenzy since I know I'll be walking 7000000 miles while in London. All I can imagine is a fanny pack full of band-aids and flip flops for the inevitable horror of not being able to put shoes on my feet. Wow, that brings back major LA 2009 memories! So, as per my Instagram update I did score some great finds at Payless, yessssss I knowwwwwww, Payless! :) Got some heat about my frugal choices on facebook, but I tell you, I've never had one problem with Payless! Dexter anything is amazing!

I also found a great site for wide widths, as we know is my CURSE, and I was so excited to see fun site with on trend designs that still focus on comfort. You have to check out wide fit shoes, by Clarks! I picked out my favorites below for you. I think they have a US site too. And, be sure to add 2 to the shoe size since it's in UK I'm a 9 on their site since 11 in U.S. Can you tell I'm a bit obsessed with nude shoes right now?!

Man, these would really round out the collection nicely at home!

Long Lost

Found this shoot I did while cleaning off memory cards for my trip to London next week. I'm headed there to co-host British Plus Size Fashion Weekend and attend London Fashion Week on behalf of Portland Fashion Week® thanks to our sponsor Northwest College! While the preparations are in full swing with packing, shopping, planning, mapping, etc, who knew worrying about WIFI would be one of my biggest problems?!

Now, about this dress! I really can't even explain my love for this dress. I wore it for my TV segment a few months ago and it's still one of my all time unexpected favorites. And yes, I saw the red one..........and got it! LOL GAWD it's so beautiful. Sizing: I'm wearing a 22 here and am a 20 on top and 24 on bottom for reference.

That's it for now, but I'm excited to be blogging more and bringing you along for my London trip. More to come my loves! And, are you going to BPSFW? Would love to know! I'll be there from Thursday Feb 14 - Monday Feb 18.
