FFFWeek: Lane Bryant Blogger Conference

Day three of the FFFWeek started early with the Lane Bryant blogger conference. If you remember back, a few months ago, Lane Bryant offered bloggers a chance to style an outfit their own way in LB fashions (check out my outfit here!). Then this was the day we were all able to get together and have a chat about it, check out the flag ship store and see whats coming next for Lane Bryant.


Catching up with Dani, Hanna and Mouna



Hanging out with Bec and Georgette 




I was insanely impressed with the lighting in the change rooms- there was a button on the mirror to change the light so you can see how your outfit would look during the day. Isn't that the raddest thing you've ever heard of?!!?



Parker is pretty much the coolest chick around! On the last night, Georgette and I ended up in her hotel room having fruity cocktails! Good times!!


After we had all filled up on a scrumptious breakfast, we were given plenty of time to mingle, explore the store and chat with the other ladies. The flag-ship store between 7th and 8th street is literally the most beautiful plus-size shop I've ever been in. The two story wonder is easy to navigate with plenty of room and displays. And I never once felt cramped or like I needed to do that awkward squeeze around the racks to get passed someone, even with all of us giggling and mingling! There were change rooms on both floors  and each set had plenty of catwalk space to strut in the outfits AND comfy lounges for shopping partners (a huge tick for Ben when he shops with me!). The photo above was taken off of the second floor balcony!

I was extremely impressed with the mannequin displays and the way the outfits were styled together. Its great to see the pieces decorating the walls and giving that visible style advice! I actually saw some of the girls pick an outfit based exactly on what the mannequin was wearing! It was so refreshing to see a plus-size shop styled up and proud like the Lane Bryant flag ship!

We then headed back to the Affinia and were given a sneak peak of whats to come for Lane Bryant next season. They also gave us lots of time for questioning and the bloggers did not hold back! There was lots of discussion about sizing, cuts and colours and the Lane Bryant team really took on board what we were saying. Having a brand that is so responsive and eager to change for the needs of the consumer is exactly what we need. I can't wait to see what the next six months brings for them!



I'm OBSESSED with the Cacique bras!! I seriously wear them everyday. Apart from my work bras ( purely because I like my boobs to look flat not fabulous when working!), they are under every one of my outfits!







Top: Forever 21+
Skirt: City Chic
Belt: New Look Inspire

I couldn't wait to bust out this Forever 21+ floral top! I adore the colours and couldn't resist pairing it with my favourite bold clutch. Add a unicorn necklace and I was ready to go!

Have you tried Lane Bryant's collections??
