A little bit of London...

It has only been over the last few months that I have taken a much more avid interest in fashion. For many years I felt that I was too fat to wear fashionable, on trend clothing. My interest really began when I started writing this blog. I was welcomed into a blogging community, a place where I could share like-minded interests with others. It was from this I was able to build up the confidence to buy more colourful clothes, to attend bloggers events, to even post a picture of myself in a bikini for all the world to see, I feel like I am slowly but surely gaining more confidence and making more friends with people who have struggled with the same things I have.

Last week I was lucky enough to attend one of London's Fashion Week's events with Gabi Gregg of Gabi Fresh.com. As many of you may know Gabi is one of the most famous plus sized bloggers around and I was lucky enough to have her stay with me for a few days while she was in London working with Simply Be. She is such a down to earth and beautiful girl and it was an absolute pleasure to have her stay.

My friend and I decided show her a bit of the non touristy part of London so decided to take her to Brick Lane. It is my most favourite market in London. Rich in culture, tons of cool vintage shops and amazing food stalls it is definitely a place that I recommend everyone should visit.


So going off tangent slightly... I went along with Gabi and a few other gorgeous bloggers to the Rani Zakehm fashion presentation in Cavendish Square. We decided to meet prior to the event to have a good chin wag, some cocktails and some nibbles. I was finally lucky enough to finally meet the lovely Amy Simon and Lauren after months of chatting over twitter and caught up with some fabulous bloggers I already knew Bethany and Hanna!

As soon as I walked through the doors of the Rani Zakehm fashion presentation and saw how amazing the models looked I fell in love with his Spring/Summer line. Rani's clothing is worn by a number of fabulous curvy celebrities such as Queen Latifah, Adele and Mariah Carey to name a few! His colour choices for the line are a mixture of rosy pinks, oranges, yellow and white tones. It was so fabulous and the models were stunning.

Here is the outfit I wore to the event. I have featured this shirt in another post I just love it so much and felt it was a good classic look for the event. I am sorry about the quality of some of these pictures I am in the process of getting a better camera for use on my blog, but in the mean time you may have to put up with my iPhone snaps! I hope you enjoyed this slightly long post but I felt I had a lot to fit in! Hope you have all had a fabulous week catch you soon.
