This weekend was all about Style XL.
The fantastic midlands plus size event I had the pleasure of modelling for on Saturday.
Organised by the beautiful Leah from http://www.thirtysomethingcurvyme.com it was certainly a day to remember.
Beautiful clothes and beautiful ladies.
The event was held in Leicester at the Sanctuary workshops.
The organisation was first class’s and the support Leah received from family and friends was priceless.
It was amazing to get to meet the brands some I knew and some that were new to me.
I fell in love with so many outfits and accessories. My husbands blood pressure was rising with my list of I wants or I needs.
I had the pleasure to model for Simply Be, Apple and Pears and Topsy Curvy while wearing some beautiful Iridescence jewellery. A big thank you to the brands for letting me wear their beautiful clothes.
Wow I still can’t believe I wrote that.
Yes on Saturday I walked the catwalk.
I felt truly amazing the clothes were stunning and in the words of my husband I just glowed.
It was a fabulous day and It was wonderful to actually get to meet the ladies that I have come to know and love via social media in real life. I have also added to my list of blog crushes.
As the first Midlands plus size fashion event Style XL set a standard and after chatting to Leah I know it’s only the beginning. She has plans for next year that are bigger and better.
Regardless of what 2015 will bring Leah I hope you can see what a great success Style XL was and maybe give yourself a few hours of rest.
As for me, I am still on a complete high. I loved every minute of the day. Walking that catwalk, wearing those amazing clothes is something I could get used to. Now I am super excited for Plus North.
It was a real moment of realisation and body confidence for me a major step on a journey I have been on for such a long time.
Modelling is something I never Imagined I would ever get to do again but you know what I loved it and to be honest I looked pretty awesome too ha ha.
