Ok fab Brisbane fatties – I’m so excited, I’m in the thick of co-planning a plus-size clothing swap! We have booked a date and a venue, and are just in the final stages of planning the logistics and organising the final details, which I should be able to share with you within a few days.
I can tell you the basics though:
Date: Saturday, 10th March, 2012
Time: 12pm – 3pm
Place: Graduate Centre Function Room (Queensland
College of Art [QCA] Griffith Uni, 226 Grey St, South Bank)
So if you’re in or near Brisbane, now is the time to be going through your wardrobe and pulling out all those garments that don’t fit you, or that you don’t feel comfortable in, and getting them ready to bring along to swap for some that are perfect for you.
Make your wardrobe work for you, not you work for it!
The more items you bring, the more items you can swap them for. I already have a big box full of clothes, some new with tags still on them to bring along.
This is a great way to revamp your wardrobe, and it will also be a fat positive event where you can meet lots of other local fab fatties. We will have change rooms and mirrors set up so that you can try things on, and I expect it to be a fun, body positive event of fatties sharing fashion tips and socialising.
And personally, I am hoping that it will be enough of a success that we can hold more fatshion swaps and other fab fatty events in Brisbane.
More details to come soon, but it’s only 3 weeks away, so put the date in your calendars now. It’s going to be an awesome event.
So start sorting your wardrobes now, and getting those unloved garments ready to be swapped for some that you will love, and so they can be adopted by other fab fatties.
