Viva Fat Vegas Series Part 3: Day 2 at Voluptuous Boutique!

After becoming full on sorority sisters with the bloggers we headed into day 2 of the Conference!  First, we headed to Voluptuous Boutique, the first Plus size Boutique in Las Vegas!  There we were greeted by the lovely owner Patty and her husband who gave us a run down of their mission, and superb customer service.  It was great hearing that they were working class citizens who made a dream happen for themselves.   Especially a dream that makes all women feel accepted and treated with respect, while receiving excellent hospitality!  In addition, Voluptuous Boutique was hosting the Queens of the Desert Model search in which Rosie Mercado (MUA, face of Full Figured Fashion Week and Size Acceptance Advocate) would be a judge of.  We couldn’t wait to meet her!

Because this was such an amazing experience and we have a million awesome photos, we are breaking up this day into two!  We hope you love them!

Check it out:

Everything in the store was designed by the owner Patty, she hand painted the shoes on the mannequin!

I loved this top!  But it eventually went home with Cid!

Jasmine added this cool zippered top to her Swag bag!  Thanks Voluptuous!

Sarah and an amazing silver dress!

This top joined Dannika’s Swag bag!

Work it @jazamillion!

I decided on this sweater, Stiletto said I looked very Jackie-O!  Look out for an OOTD in this one!

After trying on fabulous clothes with price points so low you would think it’s too good to be true (everything was under 30 dollars!), in walks the beautiful Rosie Mercado, one of the judges of the Queens of the Desert Model Search!  Everyone’s jaws just dropped because she is seriously gorgeous!

Holly Martin (I told her I would not forget her name)!  She makes head pieces, like the one she is wearing, I can’t wait to see her collection!
