Brisbane Fatshionistas – Fab Fatshion Fun is Forthcoming!

Published November 1, 2012 by sleepydumpling

I’m really, really excited.  “Why are you excited Kath?” I hear you ask.  Because we’re having another fab fatty fatshion event in Brisbane!

Yes, I am that excited.

The delightful Olivia from Wait Until the Sunset has been hard at work organising this pre-loved clothing fair, A Plus Size Wardrobe, for the 15th of December.  That’s just over a month away people!

So, here are the basic details:

For those of you who can’t see the image, you can find out more information on the Facebook page.

The idea is that instead of fiddling about with eBay, or using consignment stores, that we all get together and have a fab fatshion fair and sell all those awesome clothes that we pick up that just aren’t right for us.  That dress you wore once but didn’t feel comfortable in.  Those skirts you bought on sale without trying on and then got them home and didn’t fit.  You know the type of thing, I know many of you have them in your wardrobe.

I will be having a stall there, so there will be at least ONE stall representing size 24AU+ mega-fatshion.  I have things that are new with tags to sell!

To arrange a stall, email aplussizewardrobe@gmail.com and you will be sent all the info you need.

Otherwise, come along, hang out with all the local fab fatties and pick yourself up some bargains.  I believe there are going to be prizes and food and stuff too.  What fatty doesn’t like prizes and food??  Olivia has put the hard work in and found some sponsors and industry support.  Yay Olivia!

To all of you, wherever you are, please promote this event amongst the fab fatty community, as we are all at least six degrees of separation from a Brisbane (or nearby) fab fatty.  I will be sharing info on the Chub Republic Brisbane tumblr page (and my own) and here are a couple of .pdf files you can print out and stick up on noticeboards and stuff if you’re in the Brisbane area.  The more we promote it, the more fab fatshionistas will turn up.

See, I have every reason to be excited!

Chub Republic Brisbane Presents – Wardrobe Revamp: Fab Fatty Clothing Swap!

Published February 27, 2012 by sleepydumpling

I promised you I’d be back with more information on our fab fatty clothing swap for Brisbane peeps.  Check out our super cute flyer:

Here is a downloadable version (pdf) if you want to put one up somewhere that you know other fab Brisbane fatties will see it.  Spread the word my lovelies!

I really hope that we can get lots of you there – the more folks we have, the more variety of clothes we’ll have to swap.  I know I’m bringing some clothes to swap that are brand new (some with the tags still on them), from Torrid, Autograph, Asos Curve, Yours, Evans, Lane Bryant… that are just longing for a fab fatty to love them.  Some of them I wish I didn’t have to part with, they just don’t fit me.

If you can come along, here is the Facebook event for it, or email us at the email address on the flyer above.  Please RSVP so that we can get a good headcount of all of you for organisational purposes.

Also, we’ve started a Brisbane chapter of Chub Republic (founding chapter is in Melbourne).  We have a Twitter, a Tumblr, and a Facebook.

I’m so excited to be part of all of this, I think it’s going to be AWESOME!
