I find it kind of amusing that I get invited to a good number of fashion events. Other than the series I wrote on the fashion tips I picked up at Bellanor Boutique’s Cury Fashionista class, I don’t write about style tips, fashion trends, designers, or anything else related to the fashion industry. However, over the last 3 plus years since I started blogging I have gotten to know a couple of models, store owners, and stylists. These connections are what gets me invited to the various fashion events happening in Philadelphia.
While I don’t have the passion for fashion like my style blogger friends, I do always enjoy myself at these events. I really like the fact that Philadelphia does have a thriving fashion scene that is growing. As a matter of fact the #17DaysofFashion are still going on here in Philly right now. On Saturday Night I got to go to a great Fashion Show at Dressbarn. What I like the most about the events that I get invited to is that I see models of all sizes. I am not a small girl. It makes me feel good to see models who are not all super thin. I love seeing women who are average size or even a little bigger showing off the latest fashions and styles. It’s nice to know that the latest trends and styles are for us bigger girls too. It’s fantastic to see women whose body types resemble my own looking beautiful, edgy and sexy. Here is one of my favorite looks from the Saturday Night Fashion Show at Dressbarn. I liked this dress so much I came home with it.
