This is a meetup for all those radical babes* out there who love fashion and want to have fun, make friends, and be our selves. This is a body inclusive and body positive group with a special emphasis on the plus size community (though anyone of any size can join.)
Below are some ideas I have in mind:
-making body positive zines -size inclusive clothing swaps -pool parties -all sizes fashion show -picnics (because who doesn’t love wine and cheese?) -thrifting outings -flea market outings -pot-luck style dinner parties -photoshoot party -craft day/diy -attending any cool free events (art gallery openings, museums, farmers markets) -dog events (in you have dogs and are into that)
I was inspired to start this meetup after going to the wonderful Essie Golden’s Golden Confidence Pool Party in Los Angeles. I realized that there are not enough plus-friendly events and I although there is a growing amount of body positivity and plus size fashion on the internet (especially Instagram) there needs to be more in real life. So why not start a group?
Please join and introduce yourself. Let me know what your ideas and interests are and we can begin!
