So, this is Fat Girl Pop-Up Shop comprised of my clothes! It is happening next Friday, August 23 in Oakland at Halmoni Vintage! I will be giving fashion tips and helping fatties style looks during the event (oooooh). I'm bringing LITERALLY dozens of pieces for the pop-up shop.. here's a sneak-a-boo of some stuff I dug up today. Almost everything is priced under $10 (with the exception of a few prized items: think vintage fur and sequins). There will be shoes, accessories, dresses, skirts, and tops. You NEED to be there! I will post some more goodies this week! xo
p.s. I have limited spots for putting some items on hold if you are planning to attend the event. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you see something you need to have.
