In looking through the deepest reaches of my favorite fashion picks in preparation for tomorrow's (yes, tomorrow!) Fat Girl Pop Up Shop, I found some real show stoppers & wonderful pieces that reminded me of all kinds of fierce fat girl moments. I dropped off my goodies today at Halmoni and got the scoop that Natasha will be serving up pink sangria and there will be some local press in attendance! Ooooh! I thought I'd throw some images your way to give you just a taste of what's on offer tomorrow night. The event starts at 6pm. There is a $5 fee for the event (which you can pre-pay for here). This event will be held at Halmoni Vintage, located at 1621 2nd Avenue, Oakland, CA.
