Dots Shopping Trip

have you ever shopped at a dots? i had never set foot in one, and i’d never really heard anyone talk about dots before a month or so ago. the folks at dots reached out to me and asked me to stop by a store in raleigh to shop with a $25 gift card. so, i took the opportunity to stop by and put together some outfits, check out the accessories section, and take a bunch of photos. (shout out to my boyfriend for the excellent help at the “shoot!”) read more Dots Shopping Trip

Things I Wish I Owned: Prabal Gurung for Target

i’m not sure that any of the #prabalfortarget items will fit me because, like most everything that target does in collaboration with big name designers, it doesn’t come in plus size. i still think the looks from the #prabalfortarget collection are lovely, and i’ll probably still be found at a target somewhere trying a lot of them on. because damn the size on the label! who knows if it’ll fit or not. that being said, i thought i’d share my favorite looks from the collection here. if you shop the prabal gurung for target collection and spend more than $50, you get free shipping. read more Things I Wish I Owned: Prabal Gurung for Target

Labor Day Sales: JC Penney

I have always loved JC Penney. I grew up shopping there, I have found some of the best deals there, and I’ve got a ton of pieces from Penney’s that people always ask, “OMG Where did you get that?!” immediately upon spying my outfit. I have a theory, and I think the reason this happens is because a. a lot of people don’t even bother going into Penney’s b. they have a serious issue with rack appeal c. someone else should be dressing their mannequins. See what I scored in-store for the Labor Day Sale. read more Labor Day Sales: JC Penney

In-Store Shopping: Forever21+

I showed you what I found at Lord & Taylor while at the mall in New Jersey earlier this week hunting down Labor Day sales for plus size ladies … now I’ll show you what I found in Forever21. And man … did I hit the jackpot in there! From silken-type pants (totally not silk) that look like someone’s fancy-ass pajamas to a bad-ass leather jacket with spikes on the shoulders, Forever21 had something for every type of ass. read more In-Store Shopping: Forever21+
