Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
As I hinted on Friday, today’s post is a mini fashion show in the change room at Forever 21! Fashion, love it!
I drove to Forever 21 to check out what was new in their plus size section. I like Forever 21 because their prices are affordable, their plus size section is fairly large so there are a lot of options, and their styles are on trend for all you fashionistas out there. I went out looking for tops and jeans. Unfortunately, the jeans I saw online were not available in store. While that was disappointing, I did find several tops to try on. I wanted to buy them all but alas I didn’t win the lottery so I had to choose.
Personally I like a lot of different styles, which you can tell by the photos. (I apologize for the poor photo quality… I need more practice and possibly a new phone with a better camera). I like feminine, flirty, trendy and edgy. If I put something on and immediately feel comfortable, confident and beautiful, I know I’ve found a winner. My daughter says I’m too old to wear some of the stuff I like but I say fashion has no age limit just like style has no size boundaries. Wear what you like and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
What’s your style? Don’t know yet or still figuring it out? No problem! Get to your favorite store and start trying on different things. You might end up liking something you never would have expected. Buy it and Be Pretty, Plus and Proud in that stunning new outfit!
Can you guess which top I bought? Which one do you think looks best? I’ll reveal my purchase choice in tomorrow’s post!
In the meantime, be Bold, Be Beautiful!
Good morning and Happy Friday!
Question of the day: As a plus size woman, what are some of your greatest sources of frustration?
Perhaps small airplane seats? Tight restaurant booths? Getting a date? Getting a job? Finding clothes that fit, flatter and are affordable? People pointing, staring or making rude comments? Small bathroom stalls? Small dressing rooms?
Every plus size woman has probably dealt with, or continues to deal with, these problems and more.
One of my personal frustrations is plus size retail designers who seem to assume that every plus size woman is 10 feet tall and has big feet. Plus size clothes are usually too long for my short 5 ft. 1 inch body, so on top of the usual higher cost of the clothing, I have to pay for alterations. I have to say, I’m liking the current crop top trend because crop tops are usually not crop on me! This means that, for once, they land at my waist instead of flowing down to my knees. Shoes are always too big for my size 6 foot. With the wider width, and most shoes at plus size stores starting at size 7, my little feet end up going for a swim.
Share your pet peeves and solutions/tips & tricks if you have any!
Have an awesome weekend, and as always, be bold! Be beautiful! Be Pretty, Plus and Proud!
