The other night we were invited to an exciting event here in Toronto to support featuring Whitney Thompson (winner of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 10) for plus size brand Allistyle, at Gussied Up. If you haven’t heard us rave about this adorable plus size boutique before, then here is your chance to! We absolutely adore this little fabulous shop just a few steps south of Dupont and Bathurst. Created by Victoria McGroarty, Gussied Up carries a wide assortment of merchandise, from basic tanks and leggings, cardigans and everyday tops to party dresses and designer plus size labels. They also carry Damn Heels, jewellery from local talent, fabulous purses & clutches and more! At Gussied Up every piece that Victoria brings into her shop goes against the traditional “too old lady” or “too hootchy” problem with plus size clothing. All the styles she retails are sexy, sophisticated and we swoon each of them. So if you are in the area we highly recommend you stop by! Here is a sneak peak inside the store and the event…

Karyn with the guest of honour for the evening Whitney Thompson, the first plus size winner from America’s Next Top Model cycle 10. She is an absolute doll and a pleasure to meet! So glad she loves her Canadian plus size girls and made the trip all the way to Gussied Up to support Allistyle and Gussied Up.
A cute signed glossy of Whitney Thompson, she seemed to think I resemble her from when she was on ANTM and wrote “To My Twin…” haha too cute!
Thanks for the great time!
