Invited to the Torrid Event?
A month ago I was invited to the Torrid Spring Dress Event of 2018, where my mind was completely blown! Me? Invited? I think I almost fainted between feeling so honored I was nauseous to this weird over whelming worry of ‘Oh crap! What should I freaking wear?!?’ But, as soon as I walked in my worries vanished entirely from meeting so many wonderful, nice and warm hearted people. Until I was star struck meeting ‘The Curvy Fashionista’ herself and about had a panic attack all over again following some tears. I tried to explain to her my extreme awkwardness around people and it didn’t seem to phase her at all. In fact she told me to own it. I couldn’t help but fall more in love with her!
Now I live in Georgia so this wasn’t too bad of a drive up there to the event that was held at the W Hotel Atlanta Midtown. Now, when I say it was fancy… girl it was fancy. I felt like I was Pretty Woman and waking up in a billionaires hotel suite. Being from a small town that still has dirt roads by the way. I can’t drive so my mother was my driver and when we pulled up to that hotel there was a valet. My mother and I were so shook but, to be honest we kept wondering how much our parking was going to be during the whole event. We laugh now because when we left when it was over they said torrid had it. My mother and I looked at each and was like, alright, Torrid has it.
Walking into the hotel it smelled crisp and exciting. Large groups of people gathered together and chatted while we just kinda penguined in as well. We saw seats and ran for them- well, not literally we tried to act like ladies. We sat down in the lobby where we met a lady who asked if she could help us take our picture and we of course accepted. Come to find out she was apart of the Torrid Event! When those seats weren’t comfy anymore we saw a couple sitting near the windows and yes y’all they were apart of the Torrid Event as well. It just seemed like everyone we met for the Torrid Event was just so positive and nice. A really great change in environment.
Wait… Was That Julia Miller?
The Torrid Event was held on the 27th floor and in case you didn’t know that is pretty far up and I am terrified of heights. Luckily my mother enjoyed it and took way too many pictures of the elevator ride up of Midtown Atlanta Georgia. I just closed my eyes and took deep breaths. As soon as the elevator doors opened I was greeted by several other women who were bloggers, worked for Torrid and helped host the event. I shook so many hands that day and gave a few hugs it just felt warm and inviting. Then the doors opened again and like a goddess emerged the new Face of Torrid Julia Miller! She sported the Ivory Floral Romper with Maxi Skirt Overlay (Short Inseam Now Available) and looked amazing in it!
Let’s Get it Started in Here!
As the Torrid Event started the DJ was blaring, the bar was going and in my view the buffet table was calling my name. They served things from macaroni and cheese to vegan burgers with all condiments plus fixings included. I didn’t go home hungry, that’s for sure! The view from the 27th floor was beautiful but, it left me shaking because of that fear of heights thing… remember? With all the fun and glam of the night I truly was honored to have met so many lovely women like xoxoijoelle, curves_curlsandclothes, thecurvyfashionista and tcurlgreen.
The Spring Dresses I Adored!
The three items I adored at the event was the Ivory Floral Romper with Maxi Skirt Overlay (Short Inseam Now Available), White Lemon Smocked Midi Dress and Multi-Color Floral Print Challis Smocked Dress. They just honestly shouted my name and I really need to get them! But, every time I go they are out of my size. Ah well, maybe someday. One can only dream.
