Plus Size Summer Thrifting
The other week, I found this adorable black sundress at a local plus-size thrift store! Yep, you heard me right…an entire thrift store just for plus-sized women called Love Thy Curves! It is amazeballs! I originally was looking for something in a pin-up style, but I could not pass up this cutie! With the weather being a little cooler last week (seriously, Mother Nature make up your mind), I thought it would look great with this kimono I found on the clearance rack at my local Rue 21!
While I did not pair this with a belt, which as you all know by now is my favorite thing to do because it defines my waist and gives an hour glass shape, this would look good with a belt. I love wearing these in the summer because they are shear enough that you don’t overheat, but they cover enough if you are in the air conditioning so that you are not too cold. I got a couple for this summer, and I am surprised at myself I did not do this sooner.
Even if you don’t have a plus-size thrift store, your local thrift store is a good place to get fun pieces and stay on budget. Just make sure you try things on first and know their return policies just in case.
Also, this is a good time of year to hit up your favorite shops for summer clothes too. You got two months left of summer, and a lot of the stores start doing clearance for summer now. You get to look cute af for the rest of the summer at a fraction of the cost. I got the kimono for under $10 and the dress as well.
Do you thrift shop? If so, what are your tips for a fun trip to the thrift store?
