OOTD: Torrid fall preview event in NYC

Torrid have always been one of my 'first' serious plus size brands. When I first starting getting into fashion (or more likely, realized I didn't have to wear the mumu's that were all that seemed to be available  in my size), it started with Torrid. I was searching for a costume to wear to a Halloween party and googled 'plus size costumes'. Torrid were pretty close to the top of the list. I bought a sexy little police outfit..... and 2 tops. It blew my mind that there were these cute little clothes that came in my size! No way! I can wear mini skirts and tank tops?! Who knew! Fast forward about ten years and my wardrobe is bursting with funky plus-size fashion- but it always comes back to Torrid.

When we were in NYC this year, it felt kind of surreal going to their Fall preview again. IHow did I end up here?! t felt pretty awesome to be attending an event run by my favourite brand and surrounded by bloggers and people I admire! Oh, and we got to see (and try on!) some yet to be released goodies while sipping on cocktails! I pretty much fainted and went to fat-fashion heaven! Can I move to the USA already!?

Jess pretty much rocks my world. She's hilarious!! 
**I stole some of these photos from Torrid's Facebook album (check it out here!)**

Meeting Gabi was insane. I fan girl'ed all over her! She is such a babe!

Mouna and Bec just hanging out, being the total babes they are!

Kiah is so wonderful. I didn't get to catch her at many events, but she is such a fabulous blogger! Go check her out- she has wicked style!

Hosted by the fabulous Jessica Kane,  we got to see some of the great new pieces coming into stock now. My favourite being the jegging jeans (seen my post on it??? It has gratuitous boobs!!) and a funky studded vest! There are some great textures and cuts coming into season too, some wicked blues and bright pinks! I tried on a few pieces to check out the fit and as always- Torrid delivers!

Trying on some of the new goodies!!

There was so much to see, try on and play with, I was one of the first ones there AND one of the last to leave! It was so awesome to see what was coming next and seeing a brand grow so much! I wanted pretty much everything they showed this morning! 

Top: Forever 21+
Skirt: Torrid
Stockings: We Love Colors
Flats: Rubi Shoes

For my outfit on the day I wanted to be bright and bold! I'd picked up this skirt on a shopping trip with Dani and Ash- I love the little pops of pink and couldn't resist adding this bright pink blouse on top! This outfit is everything Torrid means to me- bright, colourful, happy, cute and fun! And ultimately- everything fashion should be!

What do you think of the new range?? 


  1. I am a fan of "Gabi Fresh." Beautiful plus-size lady (and so are you). I think Torrid makes some of the most fabulous plus-size fashions. Glad you had fun with this whole deal.


  2. I absolutely love that outfit on you! The colour and pattern just looks so bloody amazing together! <3

  3. It looks like you had an amazing time and it looks like there are some amazing pieces for this season at torrid, I can't wait to check the stuff out at the store. But yeah your outfit is too cute, I love the bright colors, it totally matches your bright smile! :)
