I must tell you something important about Halmoni: it's magical. Beyond the unicorns and kittens decor, the shop is infused with this incredible energy and beauty. Every little detail and fixture has been lovingly bedazzled, painted pink or Tiffany blue, and every piece of clothing has been chosen lovingly by Natasha.
The night started with mingling and sangria sipping (and there were also plenty of Debbie Cakes!). The Daily Californian was in attendance (look for the link to coverage of the event next week). Each of us in the room talked about a piece we had on and what we loved about it. People spoke about beloved earrings that chimed, personality defining hats, ribbon embellished mary janes, and swimsuit coverups that were doubling as dresses! I read from Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love & Fashion and then it was time to shop. Almost everyone left with something they loved.
FAQs regarding the Fat Girl Pop-Up Shop:
Is Halmoni your new favorite spot for plus size vintage?
Were there tiny heart-shaped cakes with the word fat on them at the event?
Is it true that there were Miss Piggy price tags on your clothes?
Was there grapefruit infused bubbly water and tecate and blueberries and taffy and PINK SANGRIA?
