"I feel that luck is preparation meeting opportunity." - Oprah Whinfrey
It's super amazing how opportunities that I never dreamed of are falling right into my lap! A few months ago, I did an audition for an up and coming Lifestyle TV Show by the name of Real Talk TV. Fortunately, I was one of the hosts chosen for the show and its been a blast ever since! The awesome thing about it is being able to go to shows (without having to pay!), backstage passes, cool clothes and meeting awesome people within the fashion industry. My segment on the show is Plus Size fashion and it's been an awesome few weeks filming.
Last night I was on set at FAT (Fashion Arts Toronto) fashion shows with Real Talk TV! Other than our FRONT ROW SEATS and gift-bags, I was extremely excited to interview plus size and alternative model, Bella Mitchell, who was an absolute doll. She took the time out of the busy backstage hustle and bustle to give us an insightful interview! This year, FAT brought to Toronto over a dozen designers that have included plus sizes within their line! I'll say I was very pleased. Special thank you to the FAT team and to Bella Mitchell for her patience and time!
I decided to make it easy for myself and throw on one beautiful piece from Forever 21 Plus. I just loved the neckline cutouts and the shade of bright blue. My pink wedges are from Torrid and my earrings are courtesy of Canadian designers, Knox & Marley!
EARRINGS: One thing I've noticed about these earrings is that they bring a certain level of drama while still keeping it classy. I LOVE that. As a matter of fact, I just love a noticeable earring. Go BIG or go HOME!
Special shout out to my Mom who took some of the photos above!
Hope all of you are doing well!
