I hit up Carlee & Annie (FF's proprietresses) to see if they'd be into hosting a reading of Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion the day before the NOLOSE conference. And they said yes!
When I got there, the shop was just about to close. And then I got the best news imaginable: I would get a full hour all to myself to shop before the reading! I felt like Pretty Woman or something! The shop is filled with Miss Piggy decor and the walls are covered with fat legends. I ended up buying a few things, among them a fat girl coloring book and two vintage tops - 1 amazing emerald green crop top and 1 satiny power top with shoulder pads and a Versace style print (omg! can we talk about how much I love fake Versace!?).
Another example of my mantra: the tag says no but the stretch says yes!
Below are some more lovely pictures for you to enjoy. Before I go I gotta give HUGE THANKS to:
