Expo Style

If you didn't attend Marie Denee's TCFStyle Expo, you surely missed an amazing event and don't let me forget AFFORDABLE. Pre-purchased general tickets were under $15 and priority tickets pre-purchased were a little over $30.   You could also just show up to the event and the fee was $20.  The priority ticket holders received a goodie bag. 

The ore of the event would equate to simply wonderful; women of all shapes and sizes empowering one another and ultimately promoting self love.  

The event's duration was 8 hours, 12pm-8pm.  A little before the event started, there was a Blogger's brunch, I was stoked that I was invited!  There was a goodie bag in our seats to greet us with all types of goodness inside(pic below).  We mingled and networked all while enjoying tapas.  Being there a bit early allowed the blogger's a chance to browse through the vendors before the doors opened.

So let's get into the vendors! This wasn't a typical event, there was wayyyy more than just plus size clothing.  Along with clothing ,the expo offered, body butters/oils, make-up/cosmetics, jewelry, under garments, shoes, henna and even a sample sale on plus size wedding dresses.  Not to mention, an open bar! YUP, free (But of course we tipped the bartenders) and unlimited hors d'oeuvres throughout the entire event. If the hors d'oeuvres weren't filling enough, there was a food truck outside selling food. There were also panels that covered several topics and a fashion show that allowed the attendees to view some of the vendor's clothing on the runway. 

Lastly, let's get into my attire! I felt like a goddess. 
The top was purchased from Forever 21 ages ago. My vibrant magenta maxi skirt was purchased from Zelie For She.  The signature piece of this outfit definitely is the clutch purse that I purchased from my boo,MO from the TuTu Experience.
