A Plus Size Wardrobe

After moving to a new house this year, it became truly official....... I have too many clothes. Couple that with the fact that loads of my curvy girlfriends are always on the lookout for new fashions, I thought how cool it would be to have a place we could all come, hang-out, mingle, buy and try on each others pre-loved clothes

So, I thought I'd just go ahead and organise one!

And I am very proud to say that on the weekend just gone, I hosted my first ever A Plus Size Wardrobe- a second-hand clothing market for sizes 14 and above!

I am so, so happy with how it all went! For our first ever event I am super happy with the turnout and there has been loads of positive feedback on our Facebook page! Held at Oxford 152 in Bulimba, we had our own private bathrooms as change areas, access to our own bar, delicious munchies and plenty of space to spread out and mingle!

We were also lucky enough to have brands come on board and support us as well! I contacted a few local companies to see if they were interested and Mel from MISSMEL not only signed up to have a table selling at the event, she also donated a prize to the lucky draw and sponsored the whole day!

The stall holders had us all covered for sizes and styles! There were five stalls in all (Mel from MISSMEL, Melissa from Suger Coat It, Kath from Fat Heffalump, Me and a local babe Monique), selling sizes 16-28, dresses and skirts, pants and shorts, tops and tanks, shoes, jewellery and accessories! Phew! There was a lot of goodies up for grabs!

As you can see by the pictures, it was a lot of fun mingling and chatting to the local plus-size community! A huge thank-you to all of those who popped down to support us and pick up some bargains! Also to TS14+ and Virtu who donated $100 gift vouchers for the lucky draw and all the brands who generously gave vouchers, merchandise and flyers for the goodie bags:

- Lash Me Eyelash Extensions
- Lil and Fred Handmade for Kids
- Cakeolicios Cakes by Mary
- Ezibuy
- MISSMEL, TS14+ and Virtu

We are already planning the next one for February 2013, so if you are a local Brisbane babe or even just passing through- we would love to see you there for a fabulous day of laughs, bargains and plus-size fashions!!

  1. Wow, looks like you had a good time. :)


  2. I can officially say that I've never been more disappointed to have spent a weekend in a place that wasn't Australia. Haha.
    The event looks like it was amazing! I wish there were events like that were I live, but alas, that place is devoid of interesting stuff.

  3. So awesome that you put this all together! Very proud of you! Now if only I could be in Australia to participate in the fun :)

  4. Count me in for the February event. When you have more details let me know and I'll start promoting for you!

    You did good - it was such a fab event.

  5. Wow it all looks so amazing! It's a shame I live in England and not Oz! I love the dress you're wearing in the last photo. So pretty :)

  6. Looks like such a great event, and so sad I missed it, lots of accessories there I can see. Will need to try make it to the next one in Feb :)

    Very glad it went so well for you.

  7. It looked like a fantastic day, congratulations on your first event. Rachel xx
