This is my third (Part One – What I Wore) (Part Two – What I Did) and final Plus North post which is focussed around who I met!
Number one and most importantly I met my fellow blogger babes!
Sarah from Plus Size & Proud is my absolute gem. I never thought we would get on as much as we did and she well and truly made my weekend. Sarah is such a beautiful and lovely woman who keeps upbeat and friendly even when bad things are happening – and boy did she have her share of bad luck! However she pulled through, kept a big smile on her beautiful face and we had a fantastic weekend.
Another babe from the weekend who became really close with me and who spent a lot of time with me was the beautiful and so lovely Sarah Hadzipasic ! We seemed to just click and we got on so well. Thanks for making my weekend so great Sarah!
I’ve wanted to meet Michaela for so long because we have mutual friends and lots in common! Slut dropping and dancing my ass off with this girl was the highlight of the Saturday night! Such a babe.
Meeting Sam was fabulous. She’s effortlessly beautiful and looked incredible all weekend. Also she had the best burger bag I have ever seen!
All the babes I met were wonderful and made the weekend so special! I only wish I’d taken more snaps.
I was also happy to finally meet some of my favourite brands in person, and get to know some new ones! Here’s a run down of some of the brands I met and a mini wishlist for them!
Yours Clothing -
Goodies from Yours Clothing! Including a cute heart lolly & little heart sweets.
More goodies from Yours! The notebook has already been used as I adore the confidence building cards – such a cute touch!
I fell in love with this sequin covered wrap dress at Plus North and have been thinking about it since! This would be perfect for the party season and could be dressed up with so many different colours/styles of accessory.
Another dress I’ve seen a lot of lately is this Monochrome Stripe Skater Dress! It seems to be a big hit in the blogger community and I adore it.
I also spied this beautiful floral playsuit which I love! It could be dressed up or down and has beautiful colours.
I had the pleasure of meeting and walking for MS.SVG at Plus North and also got to have a little snoop of what they had to offer!
My fave dress from MS.SVG was this beautiful floral print batwing dress which I actually modelled on the Sunday. The dress is light and floaty and felt lovely on.
Another dress I lusted after was this gorgeous lace sleeved dress the stunning Georgina tried on to model.
Evans came along with some lucky dip giftcards which were great! Sadly I only won £5, but that’d still going to come in handy!
I could use my voucher on this awesome Duster Coat which would be a great wardrobe staple.
Or on these beautiful floral tapered trousers which would also look great with the jacket!
Topsy Curvy -
It was great to see a new brand I’d only recently heard of attending Plus North! They have some lovely dresses which are more “out there” and definitely are more attractive to a younger plus sized girl like myself. I also loved chatting to these ladies as they were super down to earth and so friendly.
My fave piece from Topsy Curvy was this Green Floral dress. I love the bold print, the figure hugging body con style and the plunging neckline. This definitely needs to find its way to my
Another piece I love is this double layer lace skater dress! This one is quite daring with the amount of lace and I just love it.
Curvy Kate -
I loved meeting the girls from Curvy Kate,who handed out these gorgeous “we love your curves” bags which I adore! I loved them so much I wrote a whole post about them with a wishlist here!
Plus North was the first time I heard of Elvi and I’m so glad that I did!
The pieces they brought with them were classic and stunning, and were possibly some of my favourite pieces.
The real winner for me was this stunning coatigan which is absolutely perfect. It’s made of 100% lambswool with a shiny trim and the quality of it is outstanding. I can definitely imagine this with smart tapered trousers, thrown over dresses and paired with cute blouses. I think I’ll definitely be investing in this piece as it’s amazing.
Simply Be -
Simply Be are so iconic in the plus sized fashion world – always pushing the boundaries and bringing us collection after collection of amazing affordable fashion to fit all bodies. I was so pleased to be chosen to model for them and enjoyed every second. The team who came along were so kind and positive and made us feel brilliant about ourselves. It’s great to have such wonderful inspiring women working for such a brilliant brand.
They also loved my drown soda necklace!
My wishlist for Simply Be would be HUGE, so here’s a few of the pieces I saw at Plus North which I adored.
This Baroque Style Skater Dress was so beautiful and detailed in person I fell in love instantly.
However my heart was stuck on the Off The Shoulder Prom Dress which just screamed 80’s retro chic to me. This piece is something special and I adore it.
Also catching my eye was this amazing PVC umberella skirt from Alice & You! This skirt is a little slice of perfection and would look so beautiful with my Simply Be mesh insert shirt!
Bras & Honey! -
Last and certainly not least – in fact possibly my fave brand I met are Bras & Honey! Myself and Donna bonded over boobs instantly and by the end of the night we were breast friends.
I was lucky enough to be asked to review a piece from Bras & Honey and I chose the Elomi Maria Babydoll which you can see the review for here!
They have such an excellent range of bras and sizes and their customer service is wonderful. They go up to a 48 back in some styles and up to a K cup in others.
I’ll definitely be buying from them in the future – here are some of my fave styles in a 40-GG!
Elomi Amelia and matching briefs! I’m in need of a new basic black bra and this set would be perfect.
I also loved the Elomi Yolanda in this beautiful biscotti colour/print. The shorts are lush!
My absolutely number one favourite is the Imogen set. It’s absolutely gorgeous with its padded cups, little bows and those high pants with mesh are heavenly.
Although the Maria fit so beautifully, I’d love to try that basque as I’ve never ever had a basque to fit my large chest/large everything, and the white Maria bra would also be an excellent addition to my underwear drawer as it goes strapless! I long for a decent strapless bra that keeps my ladies up!
So that was my last Plus North post – and quite a hefty one at that! I loved my time there and cant wait to see what other events will be happening. I’d love to model again as it felt amazing and urge anybody to apply to it!
What were your highlights of Plus North? Any other events you’re looking forwards to?
