Fat Girl Food Squad Pop Up Sale

Last Sunday, I was pleased to attend Fat Girl Food Squad's first a vintage pop-up sale held at Sneaky Dee's bar & restaurant in downtown Toronto.

I started the day off right by accompanying blogger babes Karen from Curvy Canadian and Alex from Not Afraid to Wear Heels to breakfast at the oldest restaurant in Toronto, The Senator. The food was amazing, and Alex's latte looked absolutely to DIE for! Just after we left @TheSenatorToronto tweeted us and offered us a free treat to show their gratitude for our support. I'm definitely taking them up on the rain check they offered us!

Being the fashionistas that we are, Karen, Alex and myself headed across the street to the Toronto Eaton Centre to shop for a bit! Our first stop was H&M.. which honestly, I was skeptical about. I rarely have luck at H&M, but Karen convinced me to give them a try and look around for some stretchy items. I'm actually so glad that I listened to Karen's advice, because I ended up finding a gorgeous floral dress (Karen bought the same one!), a floral coverup and a geometric kimono. We then headed over to Spring where I found some killer heels with ankle straps. I had to order the next size up, but Spring's policy is awesome and I had them delivered to my apartment two days later, free of charge!plus size fashion, toronto, plus size lace, plus size jeans, plus size tank, plus size blogger, curvy girl toronto, plus size blog canada, toronto fatshion, fatshion blog, curvy fashion toronto, statement necklace, addition elle, smoke slippers, casual fashion, bbw lace, bbw ootd, curvy fatshion, canada plus size fashion

Alex was kind enough to snap some outfit pictures for me in Yonge-Dundas Square which was a nice change of scenery!

After our shopping date, Karen, Alex and I hailed a cab and headed to Sneaky Dee's. We were so conscious of our time that we ended up arriving more than a half hour early to the event! Since we knew a few of the babes who were participating, we decided to boost our Karma and help the ladies out with the set-up. Due to our eager attitude, we were rewarded with early shopping privileges. This allowed us to snag some great finds! I picked up a Dorothy Perkins dress (on the blog soon), a bodycon ASOS dress and many other gems!

This event had three of my favourite 'F' words; fashion, friends and food. So naturally, I was thrilled to attend. I shopped 'til I dropped (almost literally), chatted up a storm and ate some delicious treats (Sneaky Dee's famous nacho chips & dip, and vegan popsicles from Philip's Ice Pops). 


The members of the FGFS clearly communicated their vision of the blog, and most certainly put a lot of effort into hosting a wonderful event to attend. I know how much time and effort it takes to plan and organize events like these. Let me tell you, the ladies of the FGFS sure know to host a great day! I wanted to extend a HUGE thank you to FGFS, Sneaky Dee's and the participants.

It was amazing to come out for the day to shop, socialize and network. I saw quite a few familiar faces throughout the day, such as friends Amarina Norris & Jessica Biffi. I also had the pleasure of meeting a few members of the AMAZING Fat Girl Food Squad and I will most certainly be keeping in touch with the squad for all of the inside information on Toronto's most delicious food and events.

The spirit of this event really has me looking forward to Big Deal Toronto which will be held at the end of July this year! Big Deal is an amazing event that brings together bloggers and socialites from Toronto's plus-size community for a day of fashion, fun and photography. Last year, I was fortunate enough to participate by selling some pieces from my closet, and I will most certainly be in attendance again this year!
