Yay, the pictures from the Pop Up Studio at Plus London Two
are here! I brought the dress with me with the evening event
in mind [I figured most people would wear black, so I decided to stand out this bright coloured dress] and bought my accessories in London.
It was such a fun experience to get our pictures taken professionally and Diana, the photographer, was soooo lovely!
You can see all of Diana’s amazing pictures here
on flickr – Everyone is soo gorgeous!
Thank you so much for the photos!
The reason we flew to London was the blogger event Plus London Two
which took place on saturday evening. We had a little styling session at the hotel beforehand, during which we changed our outfits and Laura curled my hair – I’d love to hire her as my personal stylist, because that way she would always be by my side! ♥
There were plenty of amazing women with fantastic style & a lot of things we could play with, which was fantastic. It started with a fashion show, but I’ve decided not to post any pictures of it since the brand behind it didn’t really treat the bloggers who where modeling the way they should have… you can read more about it here
The other sponsors were amazing though! You could get a bra fitting by Elomi [which I unfortunately didn’t because I was too late] and try on clothes by ASOS Curve
and amazing plus size vintage from Red Bows Boutique. There were also some delicious cupcakes by Wendy
and a pop up photo studio by Fashion Loves Photo
– can’t wait to show you these pictures!
At the end of the night, I won a prize in the raffle & we got some amazing goodie bags. Again, thank you sooo much!

Rob took a picture of Rachel [I hope I remembered your name right!] and me when I asked her to take a picture of me and my „tourist party“.

To finish this post, here’s a little equation for you:
4 girls + a lot of shoes = OMG! Shoes!
I really had a fantastic time. Thank you so so so much Claire
for your hard work organizing this event. You did so great and you were a lovely lovely host!
This time, I got my pictures from Dani and from Claire’s husband, Rob Harris. [See more of them here].
The first part of Plus London Two was a visit to Anna Scholz‘
studio where we could see and try on her spring/summer-collection. We were greeted by Anna herself, who is truly wonderful! There were a lot of other plus size bloggers, cupcakes and drinks – I felt so welcome!
I learned that Anna is from Germany as well & Laura and I were able to talk to her without the language barrier. Sorry to everyone else that I was so tongue-tied!

look amazing in the black dress?

I loved seeing the studio, too – so inspiring!
We had a very interesting Q&A – Session with Anna later on. It was fascinating to hear where she took her inspiration from and I thought it was so fantastic when she told us that she almost exclusively wears her own brand – talk about passion! It turned into a great discussion about plus size clothing in general and I was forced to think about some things I didn’t think about before – for example, that it is so much better to support individuals instead of giving all our money to brands where I can just barely squeeze into their biggest size. We were also asked what we’d like to see in future collections. It was amazing to see how much everyone cared about us bloggers and our thoughts!
And in the end, we even got really cool goodie bags, aww!
I had a fantastic time and I hope that someday I earn enough money to be able to invest in some of Anna’s creations!
Thanks for having us, Anna!

Here’s what I wore to the Anna-Scholz-Event on saturday. Laura
and I took some outfit pictures in the hotel room before we left.
I was originally planning to wear the same dress to Anna Scholz and to the evening event, but of course I found a new dress when we were shopping and decided to do a quick outfit change between events. Hey, I’m not a diva, almost everyone else did the same!
When we were in the New Look store, we really liked the clothes in straight sizes but were so disappointed in their plus size range, „Inspire“. Didn’t feel inspired at all… the clothes there were really safe and boring, standard „hide your shape“ plus size clothing. I found some cute things in their maternity range though, like this dress.
