Last weekend, I had the privilege of attending Phat Girl Fresh AKA Maui’s LifeStyled Honors Event! It was an amazing experience, especially being able to attend as a blogger! There were so many vivacious and women and vibrant men in the building, dressed to the nines! I attended with The Fluffy Girl Tribe and we had a ball, especially being able to celebrate one of The Tribe’s own co-founders, Elle Dove, as her collection sashayed down the runway! It was a great weekend, indeed!
Here’s a little history (gently borrowed from their website):
Since it’s beginning in 2014, Life Styled Honors has been an event that introduced new and exciting trends. The space was created to bring something new and exciting to women and that is exactly what it did. Life Styled Honors has always been known for its model selection. The event is home to a very diverse group of models, ranging from plus size to standard size. Many of the models have had great success; modeling for large brands, working with renowned photographers and ripping runways all over the world. For the past four years, Life Styled honors has been presented to a sold out audiences. Attendees include women from all walks of life; Atlanta’s elite, bloggers, influencers, business women and everyday women. Each year, creative individuals, skilled designers, popular brands and stylist use the Life Styled Honors platform to connect with our audience and showcase their merchandise.
