L.A. Fatshion Bloggers Event Recap

Shopping, sushi, and more shopping. Yes, this describes the L.A. Fatshion Bloggers first event! We had such an amazing Saturday in one of L.A.’s most eclectic malls, the Westfield Culver City.

Our day started at 11 a.m., with a meet and greet. There Cid of Cid’s Style File, Gabi of Hungry for Fashion, Laura of Creative Xicana and I met up and chatted a bit before we got our shop on! Everyone looked amazing. Yeah, I think we’re new best friends. Jenn, from Sketching Jenn, met up with us later. We grabbed our tote bags, courtesy of Torrid, and made our way to Lane Bryant…our first stop.

Cid and I surprised our L.A. Fatshion Bloggers and fatshion lovers with $20 gift cards, courtesy of Lane Bryant. I don’t think I’ve seen bigger smiles! As you can see in the photos below, we had way too much fun. The staff was so amazing and helpful and the store looked great.

I think we might have ransacked the store a bit…sorry! Most of us were obsessed with the same pieces too. We all tried on the Ponte Knit Zipper Trim Dress and the Sequin Lapel Sweater Vest. You’ll have to wait for the OOTD’s and the reviews to see who bought what! Even us bargainistas were in heaven with their sale selection. They even surprised us with a gift bag. Too awesome!

We ran passed the time we had allotted for shopping before lunch. What itinerary?

I am sad to say, I dropped my camera in Lane Bryant. Now, it won’t work. So the photos below are courtesy of me (prior to broken camera), Cid (the amazing), and my cell phone.

We squeezed in some time to browse at Torrid, but we vowed to head back after lunch! Did I mention we even received $50 gift cards to Romano’s Jewelers? It was shopping overload.

Lunch at Yen Sushi was beyond amazing! All I heard were ooh’s and aah’s as the servers brought our food. They were really nice and described each meal they placed before us. After the delicious lunch, they treated us to dessert and a tour of their karaoke rooms. Which were named after the most elite fashion houses! Chanel, Fendi, Prada, Gucci…etc. I know! Right? I am so heading back there for their grand opening.

After the amazing lunch at Yen Sushi, we vowed to walk of this meal and headed back out into the mall. This is where the girls did more damage at Forever 21 (as seen below), H&M, Mode Plus, and Old Navy.

Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun shopping! It’s so amazing to shop with gals that love the same things you do. We all got along fabulously and can’t wait until we meet up again for our next event. There’s a lot more shopping to do out there and I think we’re the right curvy ladies for the job!
