Let’s welcome our newest sponsor!

Okay, as Stiletto knows, I have been dying to divulge some more information since yesterday, but we were waiting for confirmation, blargh! So here it is:

Let’s have a warm welcome for our lovely new sponsor,

Not only is Torrid sending us some delightful goodies, but we have organized a special shopping trip to the Torrid in Las Vegas! Ladies, be prepared for them to roll out the pink carpet! We’ll be adding that trip to our itinerary after our luncheon with Rosie!

Who’s excited?!



Sinnin’ In Style With Sealed With A Kiss Designs!

Hi Ladies!

I know we mentioned this a while back but at the time had to be very vague regarding our special Saturday night with Sarah from Sealed With A Kiss Designs. Now that we are getting closer and confirmations have been made we can bust out some more details for the evening!

The lucky Viva Fat Vegas bloggers will be spending their Saturday evening with one of my personal favorite people and companies having an EXCLUSIVE Try On Party Of Fall Fashion & Signature Styles from Sealed With A Kiss Designs!

This is going to be such a fun, clothing oriented event and I can wait to get my paws on some of their amazing new pieces that haven’t been released yet! We will also be enjoying some spirits and a light snacks too. This will be a great opportunity to get to know Sarah, talk about what we already love, what we would love to see from Sealed With A Kiss Designs and have some fabulous girl time!

Sarah from SWAK is super excited too and has sent us all a special little message!



The itinerary is HERE!

Hi ladies!

Well, Viva Fat Vegas is FAST approaching! I can’t believe it is a WEEK from tomorrow! It’s been a whirlwind of activity and planning for Stiletto and I, so it will feel good to finally see if all come together. You can find the itinerary under Events – it’s just our basic itinerary, we’ll be e-mailing all you ladies a more detailed one soon. I’ll also be making up a map (because as you all know, I am a geek) to add to the itinerary so you can plot out where we are going.

We also have a few more sponsor announcements coming up once we get some official confirmation, so you’ll have to stay tuned! 😉

Another thing I wanted to talk about is….


It’s so thrilling that SO MANY fatshion bloggers will be in attendance for Viva Fat Vegas and we will be meeting so many people, and most importantly, that we have this amazing opportunity to discuss plus size fashion! I’ve been thinking about things to discuss as a group (and to report back on our blogs after the conference!) and here are some ideas:

  1. How the plus size fashion blogging community can come together
  2. The best ways to promote your blog
  3. What tools you have found useful as a fashion blogger
  4. A list of things to help new bloggers
  5. What “integrity” means in terms of blogging

I’d love all of you to leave a comment with an idea for discussion – this is going to be not just a fun and fabulous weekend – but a weekend we can learn from, too!

Now it is up to you to talk to your roomates and book your room!

To book under our exclusive rate please call The Riviera   at 1-800-634-6753

Let them know you the dates you are booking for and that you are with the Viva Fat Vegas group with the code VIVF001

If you are rooming 3 to a room tell them there will only be 2 of you. The host who gave us the offer gave those instructions so they wont charge for the extra person. 

They should be setting you up for a Premier Room based on our agreement and let them know that Jasmin (our host) said that we would only have to pay for first night upfront. The first night fee with taxes and resort charges should only come to $61.60. I just booked our room and that was the total. They will give you a confirmation number for your reservation. Also keep in mind if you are booking but your roomate may be arriving before you that you should add their name to the room as well.

The rest of the hotel fees will be paid at time of your stay and for two nights should total $132 and for three nights $182.  Please arrange how you will handle payment with your roomate(s).  For our room I paid the upfront fee and then Allison and Sarah will pay for their portion when we get there.

If you have any problems please ask to speak to Jasmin who is very nice and helpful and the host for our hotel stay. Also if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!

Please email me at StilettoSiren@live.com and Sarah at Sarah@Tabayag.com once you have booked your room!
