Wet Seal, Sweet Deal!

Gosh Carlz, you're so clever! I really need to stop with my stupid blog titles. But I really like Wet Seal's Plus Size line. They're like Forever 21, but with better quality. They even go up to a 4X, which is like a 26-28! So yay, win for us! I wish it wasn't just an online store, I love going to Wet Seal and looking at the clothes. They're so cute!

I don't know anyone whose shopped at Wet Seal, but I would love to buy some clothes from there soon! It's so cute. I love everything, really. Yay.

Check out some stuff I like :)
Sorry that the pictures are so small, I had trouble downloading them to begin with.

From left to right.

4. Embroidered Roll Cuff Capri, $24.50 (0n sale)

I would give them 3 out of 5 stars. I would love for them to have more clothes and have more deals! Click this sentence to check out Wet Seal!

Loop 18's Out of the Loop

Lawlz, get it? Like, "out of the loop?" I think we can all agree that Loop 18 has it's work cut out for them. I've been to the Lane Bryant outlet and have personally shopped at Loop 18. Despite Lane Bryant's expensive prices, Loop 18 was really cheap. They were, luckily, having a humongous sale and I bought 2 shirts and a jacket. Most of their prints are pretty ugly, not going to lie. But I have received compliments on my clothes I bought from them.

To say the least, they aren't there just yet. We just gotta believe, I'm confident that Loop 18 will become a pretty good plus sized store. It's hard to start up a new brand, so let's give them some more time.

My one complaint though is that the shirt I have is kind of crappy. I didn't really wear it that much and it started deteriorating. No holes or anything (thank god), but it got like old looking really quickly. And the military jacket I have, it's buttons fell off. There were these cute buttons on the elbows and they fell off easily. I was laying on the couch at my friend's house once and the second time, I walked off the bus and walked into the door (lol). Still though. AND they didn't even include extra buttons just incase. I was really mad, not going to lie. It's really cute. But I look pretty ghetto with a safety pin holding the elbow cuff things together haha.

Here are some clothes that I kinda/sorta like. Lol.

From Left to Right

1. Strapless Cotton Dress, $48.96 (on sale)
2. Cropped Dress Pants, $25.99 (on sale)
3. Glitter Tee, $26.99
4. Lace Back Emma Top, $29.99 (on sale)

Yeah. So like 2 out of 5 stars for me. Get Better, Loop 18. I'll help you! Lol.

Maxi Dress Madness

I'm not into Maxi Dresses really, but as I walk down the street in this 100 degree weather, it's all I see. They seem to be pretty lightweight, so it helps with all this humidity. And paired with a nice hat or some cute wedges, it'd make a great outfit!

I'm not a Maxi Dress kind of gal because I hate long dresses, prom was a nightmare. Once I took off my heels, I was tripping all over the place. And I kind of don't like all of the prints, I feel like it's too much of a goodthing..if ya know what I mean.

After much searching, I found 5 maxi dresses I liked! The one on the left is from American Eagle. American Eagle isn't really 'plus sized,' but they go up to XXL, which is like an 18/20. And they only sell the XXL online, so yeah. The model is wearing it as a skirt and it looks absolutely adorable! It also received 5 out of 5 stars from buyers! It's 50 bucks and if you click HEREEE you can find it.

From Right to Left

1. Forever 21 +'s Faux Scarf Maxi Dress, $29.80
2. Torrid's Purple Crochet Back Maxi Dress, $54.50
3. Torrid's Border Mesh Floral Maxi Dress, $68.00
4. Old Navy's Floral Chiffon Maxi Dress, $49.94

My Torrid Affair With Torrid

So we all know I shop at Torrid. It's, what I believe tobe, the most accessible for me. Does that make sense? Despite the fact that I always get annoyed with Torrid now and then regarding prices/quality, I love them.

If I didn't find a Torrid, I wouldn't be the person I am today. Iused to wear t-shirts and like gym shorts to school everyday and NEVER wore anything fashionable because I couldn't fit into anything. I used to go to Kohl's or something with my mom and couldn't fit into the clothing and I would just cry in the dressing rooms. I'm not even kidding, I hated going shopping and my mom did too. And when she would take me into the Women's sections, I would cry even more because the clothes are nothing like what the people in school wear. You know what I mean though? I just wanted to dress like everyone else dressed at school and couldn't because I didn't know of any store.
One day, I was in a different mall and we passed a Torrid. My mom said we should check it out and it was amazing. Clothing actually fit me and I was so excited to actually wear something nice and I felt confident, for once. I didn't need to hide behind a sweatshirt or anything. And from then on, Torrid has been the store that I've gone to for anything and everything.

Here are some cute clothes!
From Right to Left

3. Pewter Ruffle Gladiator Sandals, $19.99 (on sale)

The amazing thing about torrid is that they have EVERYTHING. From clothes to shoes to accessories, you can purchase everything you need for an outfit. And even though they're expensive, they have sales a lot.

I love you, Torrid.

New Idea for My Page

I'm going to start reviewing websites for my page. Like my days on my laptop consist of me sitting here, staring at thousands of models wearing a store's clothes; so I might as well just blog about it. Right? And if I've shopped there, I'll post a picture of myself in an outfit.

However, unfortunately, my mom doesn't love me enough to take me out shopping as much as I like; so I won't have many outfit posts regarding the store. But I'll post my own outfits and stuff. And I'll post my favorite clothes from the store :)

Yay. Ideas. :)
Any stores you guys want me to check out? I'm going to try and re-do my own side bar of all the plus sized stores, so let me know of any new and upcoming stores!

A Picture Post? SAY WUUUTTTT!


Now I know I look friggin' retarded. But it was like 6:30 in the morning and I just took a shower and my dorm room was really hot.

Oh btw, I was at orientation. My school was brutally hot and I probz should have took a picture outside because my campus is GORGES; but whatever. Btw, I'm going to Ithaca. Get the gorges statement? (we have gorges, they're gorgeous)

But back to clothes! Guess where my shirt was...TORRID YUP WHERE ELSE?! And the shorts are from Marshall's. I wish you guys could have saw my earrings, they're so cute. I'm gonna do a post about jewelry soon :)

Now to the important stuff. So I just went through all of Torrid's site in hopes of finding it, but no. You can't really see the lace details in the photo, but it's really pretty. It's sparkly and it makes the shirt that much better! I bought it a size smaller a while ago to give me incentive to lose weight and it finally fits, so I'm excited! Haha.

Then I went to about every other site I could think of to find something similar and got nothing. I mean, there's a shirt in black that is lacey and nice, but WHO WANTS TO WEAR BLACK EVERYDAY OF THEIR LIFE? Ugh. I can't stand black anymore, so no more.

This is the closest I could find, it's from Forever 21+ and I love it on the model. It's 22.80 and it's known as the Sequined Sweetheart Top. That's all I could really find. Sorry! I still think it's cute though :)

Okay, time for the big leagues

I'm sick of my petty shit. I'm not gonna get more followers by sitting here, complaining about how I am so busy and that I'll start to post more sometime later. So here I am, TRYING DESPERATELY to do the right thing and become more of a fatshion blogger.

My Life

My life has become progressively more and more pathetic. I wake up in the morning and work. Then I go on my computer and stare at clothes that I wish I could buy if I was rich. But I'm poor. And my life sucks. I'm listening to Shut Up & Drive right now and I'm getting really annoyed. One second.

Okay, I had to change the song. Fucking Pandora. Okay this song is annoying me too. I'm kinda in a crappy mood right now because my best friend won't hang out with me tonight. He was at the beach for like 342534 hours and now doesn't wanna go out. Ugh. And a bunch of my friends are on vacation. #soalone.

But I don't know how to put photos onto my mac, ugh. I feel so un-intellectual. Is that even a word? But on the fashion POV, Torrid has pretty cute clothing right now! I'm actually getting excited. I'm scrolling through their 'New Arrivals' as I type. Okay, maybe it's not that nice, but still. They're getting better!

I'll post later. I'm annoyed by this song too. Sorry. Pointless Post. Alliteration. Bye.

It's Been a While

Sorry. From college orientation to going to Boston for little, I didn't have anytime near the computer to post. So, I'm sorry about that. Orientation was nice, I really love my school. I looked really cute and I took pictures, so I'll post them up soon! Then I went to the store and bought two new shirts which I'm in love with! They're sparkly and adorable. Ugh, so perfect.

I took pictures of me in there too, :) So sorry, I'm tired and am going to go to sleep. Bye! I promise to post soon!

Happy 4th of July!

I hope you all have a fun and safe holiday! Bottoms up!

Just got out of the shower, not too sure what I'm going to wear yet. Honestly, I'm not even sure of my plans yet. It's either go to Fire Island (which I still need to ask for permission from my mom) or stay home and go to my friend's party. But more importantly, what am I going to wear?! I'm thinking of wearing my City Chic ruffled top, it's so cute and I'm obsessed with ruffles so it's kind of perfect. The only thing that really bugs me, however, is that it has a banded bottom. Like, I feel like the band on the bottom looks weird with a skirt. But I really want to wear a skirt. Chances are, I'll just wear it with shorts and call it a day.

I don't know, there's something about banded bottoms and skirts. I feel like those kind of shirts look 1000x better with something like shorts or skinny jeans. Meh, outfit problems. And since it'll probably be cold on the beach later in the night, I'm going to bring this cute military jacket I got from Loop 18, Lane Bryant's young adult line. So, I'll be adorable ;)

Okay, I need to get dressed. I'll hopefully get a lot of pictures taken by my friends so yeah, byeee

I got a Mac!

Yay for college! So now that I have a mac, I'll probably be able to blog more often since I have access to a computer more often. But this will just be me talking about my feelings and how annoyed I am over everything.

On a positive note, I got my second hole pierced! I really want to get my cartilage pierced, but I can't do it at Claire's, haha. Soo I just went for my second hole. Yay! It doesn't hurt that badly, if any of you were wondering. It was just a really hard pinch. Like it hurts more afterwards than anything, it's just throbbing a lot lol.

I haven't really gone shopping in a while. I had prom and that was a lot of money, so I haven't received much shopping moolah from my mother, unfortunately. However, City Chic has been extremely nice and has let me review some clothes so I'm so thankful for them! Legitimately, I wouldn't have half of my summer clothes if it wasn't for them. I wore a dress to graduation from CC and I have two tops from them too. I want the whole site, ugh, it's horrible.

My weightloss has come to an halt. I'm so busy and I wish I could work out more, but I'm so tired. I work at my job 7-3 (40 hours a week) and then chill until like 5/6 and then go out with my friends until 12 and then work again at 7. I know I could work out in that 3-5/6 time zone but ugh, I'm so tired. Don't be mad. I'll try still, just give me support! hahaha

Just wait from my prom post, I have stories for all of you. Lol, seriously. Prom. Haha. Omg. What a joke.

I'll probably post later because I'm tired tonight and am just going to stay in. Happy July everyone! Be safe tomorrow!
