I know a lot of my friends get sticker shock when they see some of the pretty dresses and outfits at Torrid, so I am going to give you some of my best tips for getting what you want without breaking the bank!
Love Thy Curves is a plus size women’s consignment boutique located in Boardman, Ohio. There you can find gently used plus size clothing, accessories, shoes, and more! You can also consign there and earn money for your shopping adventures. Seriously, if you have ever wondered how I can afford the awesome clothing in my closet, this is really how I do it!
The other week, I found this adorable black sundress at a local plus-size thrift
CowCow can be found on Amazon, which is where I got this one. A lot of the dresses are Prime shipping. However, this one is not, but it is still free shipping and takes about two weeks to receive from the time of order. Granted, I am impatient, but it still is not that long. The quality is pretty good. A lot of my dresses are still like brand new. They are super stretchy and may be a bit short for a taller person, but they pair great with leggings!
I love this outfit! I bought this graphic shift dress by Charlotte Russe a while back and love to pair it with leggings since it is still chilly here. I am pairing it today with a pair of Du North Leggings, Torrid boots I thrifted, and a faux leather jacket from Lane Bryant that I got for five bucks! How did I score that? Well, I love to work the clearance! Also, if you have their card and earn rewards. You can use their rewards checks on ANYTHING! I used mine on the jacket and ended up paying only five bucks!
The point of using accessories is to make your outfit stand out a little more. If you are like me and like to wear the same outfits over and over again, it also makes them look a little different each time, depending on the accessories you use!
Since these dresses are so simplistic, I use the dress as a base and accessorize them with my belts, jewelry, and scarves. The belt is nice since it is a free flowing dress. It defines your waist and gives you shape.
This week is a throwback to my Dropt and Destroyed shoot last summer with Ivory
I am currently going through my closet to get rid of things I know I won’t wear. If you have things in the back of your closet, I dare you to get them out and wear them! If you cannot bring yourself to do that, consign them or donate them. They are taking up valuable closet real estate for something special!
