Young Fat and Fabulous Conference in New York

the #yffcon girls from left to right: Me, Nicolette from Nicolette Mason, Mimi and Peppi from More to Love, Christina from Musings of a Fatshionista, Gabby from Carazones Rojos, Melinda from Sound Bites, Gabi from Young Fat & Fabulous, J from Fatshionable and Sakina from Saks in the City. I have never seen so many amazingly dressed fat girls before, it was seriously exciting to be involved in such a great event. Thanks so much to Gabi from the namesake blog, Young Fat and Fabulous, for creating such a fabulous and life changing event. I feel so much more confidant now, more than I have ever felt, thanks to this empowering movement of young fabulous women who just so happen to be fat and fashionable.

Such a Sex and the City moment.

More fabulous looks from the girls at our reader meet up during the conference.

Our Plus Model Magazine shoot was such a fun experience. Getting our hair and make-up done by professionals was pure indulgence.

Look at all the accessories we had to choose from by the lovely New York based jewellery designer Fennimas.

Working it for the camera. They played Lady Gaga for me and I totally rocked out. I wore my favourite City Chic fringed skirt. I love that piece.

Gabi should consider going into modelling don't you think?

A group shot of all of us bloggers with Maddy the founder of the magazine. Such a fun day.

City Chic showed the new Winter collection to the girls.

Everyone got a fabulous gift bag.

Phil from City Chic hired out the private room at the fancy NYC Cafeteria restaurant.

The red velvet cake was a popular desert.

Mimmi is so funny.

Lucy, City Chic's head buyer and designer, went through each piece one by one. This dress was my favourite as right now I'm loving sheer and black.

The girls all died over this cute blouse.

Sakina just had to try it on. How fabulous does it look on her?

We then headed over to the Gansevoort hotel rooftop pool party in the Meatpacking district to celebrate with the City Chic team.

Sakina looking hot.

Gabby looking cool.

What a fantastic view.
