Tess Munster Visits The UK Finally Featuring Yours Clothing

Tess Munster has been a massive inspiration for me. I stumbled upon her via Instagram one day and was instantly mesmerised by how beautiful she looks and how fiercely fashionable she dressed. A plus size model who has captured the worlds heart for helping people to realise their worth and importance in this world. Starting the #effyourbeautystandards movement made women everywhere  (hopefully guys too) challenge their perception on what beauty really is. The media can so often lead us to believe that there is only one type of beautiful but Tess and #effyourbeautystandards captures the beauty in everyone. Wear what you like, challenge beauty ideals and do not be scared to love yourself.


So when I heard that Tess was modelling for Yours Clothing I was super excited to see her wearing some of their gorgeous clothes and already knowing how it would tempt my pennies away, but when I saw that she would be doing a meet and greet I literally screamed with delight. Right here in Birmingham where I live at the Yours store that I wrote about recently here.

I was horrified when I got called into work on the day but managed to twist my bosses arm to let me come in the afternoon which means my time was limited but I wasn't about to miss Tess in my town now was I? On the bus into town I must have annoyed my boyfriend so much as I was excited. Getting to the Bullring I wasn't sure what to expect I thought there would be a huge turn out but the que was really not that big at all. The Yours staff were so friendly and passed out yummy sweets and Tess badges. It suddenly occurred to me what was I going to say to her? Why didn't I bring her a little gift eek.


Yours had set up a lovely table for Tess and I had already spied on Instagram the night before that she had been signing pictures ready for giving to fans which is so sweet but also mega organised of her. The table was right at the front of the store which I think means Yours missed a total trick they could have had us going through the store and been tempted by all the pretty clothes. News crews and photographers were there too a lovely lady took a picture of me and my boyfriend which I would love to see!



Then the magical moment! I have to say that Tess is lovely a true professional watching her before I got my turn she knew how to sooth the nervous girls and spend a good few minute with each swooning fan. I got to chat to her about my dress, taking photos for blogs and how she was enjoying England. She told me to hold out my dress for the picture so we could be twins <3 She is as lovely and sweet as she comes across on the internet and as beautiful as ever! Damn that hair too some perfect curls, Thanks to my Boo for taking the photos and standing in que with me, I even managed to nab a selfie and two hugs.



Everyone was sent away with some signed pictures and a badge which was so thoughtful and sweet. I also managed to squeeze in a hug from the lovely Hannah from FabulouslyFatFashion and say hi to some other gorgeous PSbloggers that I have been chatting to and following for some time, I am so looking forward to spending some more time with them!

If you get the chance to meet Tess jump on it. Were you there? Have you met Tess somewhere else? Tell me about it :)
