This weekend was one for the history books! I had been looking forward to it for more than a month. For those that don’t know, I own a brand (Proud Mary Fashion) that shares space with the Plus Bus in Los Angeles. The Plus Bus was celebrating their 1 year anniversary of opening their brick and mortar shop (I joined them in November of 2016.) Not just that, but the day before was the Torrid Pool Party in Orange, CA. At a damn mansion. Bloggers, models, and influencers of all kinds were in town to attend both events. That means I got to bask in the glow of so many beautiful fat babes!
Saturday ended up being cloudy and rainy but we didn’t let that stop our fun. I attended with a group of friends, thanks to Anastasia Furrow (plus model and influencer based in Salt Lake City.) We all put on our best looks and headed to the party in good spirits. There were so many stylish babes in attendance, as well as cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, popsicles, flower crowns, portraits, photobooth, and an amazing DJ.
The next day I woke up and instead of being sad that party was over, I was excited to see everyone again at the Plus Bus. And it did not disappoint. I swear this was the best event I have ever been to, and I’m not just saying that. Jen and Marcy really know how to throw a party. There was a real deal photo booth thanks to posers in a booth, snacks care of cricket crumbs, tattoos from inkbus, the one and only DJ Dazzler and vendors galore (including my dear friends from Chicago LastCraft Designs and Gigi Jiggles Nails.)
Everyone was dressed to impress and ready to mingle. I wore my new favorite piece care of Navabi (found here.) Can I just tell you about this dress? Not only has a print not spoken to me so intensely before, but it’s incredibly well-made. I can tell this dress is going to last me for YEARS. I had some cute platform shoes on but my feet couldn’t take it so I threw some flats on for this photo and the rest of the night. But you can totally dress this look up or down. The cut-away sides are really great and keep this look fresh.
What a killer weekend!?! Thank you to everyone that blessed LA (and me) with your presence. And congratulations to the Plus Bus babes! You are amazing ladies that have created a beautiful safe space. I am grateful to know you, work with you, and love you. Here’s to SO MANY more years of fashion and friendship! <3
