Forever 21 can be a tricky place to shop. They can be a little too trendy for me sometimes. So, it’s not very often that I can find a whole shopping cart of favorites. In my latest “10 Favorites” feature, I happened to fall for all of these. Whether they’re comfy, chic, or sexy…these ten have definitely caught my eye.
I love a good store opening. What I like even better is getting a sneak peek before it opens to the public. That’s what I did last week when I was invited to a press preview for the 37th Bloomingdale’s store to open in the United States. It officially opened on Friday, November 8 in the city of Glendale, California (Los Angeles area).
It’s time for another one of my 10 Favorites posts. And this time it’s kind of a “fall must-have” kind of list from Torrid. There picks would be perfect for a range of looks. And that’s always what I look for—pieces I can wear more than once. I can’t believe I actually chose some camo print…being that I spent a few years in the military and I normally don’t wear it.
Have I ever told you how much I love thrifting? I really do! I grew up shopping thrift stores. My mom even worked at one. She used to bring home the greatest stuff. I guess you can say it’s in my blood. It’s just unfortunate that most stores make finding plus sizes really hard. I had almost given up hope, until I visited Savers Thrift Store in Austin, Texas!
I’m having total designer handbag envy right now. No, I can’t really afford any of these at the moment, but a girl can look and create a wish list right? Yes, I know there will knockoffs in a minute. So, in the meantime, I’m going to just imagine these on my arm. That Alexander McQueen is gorgeous!
I have always been a fan of Lucky Brand and their bohemian rustic vibe. Is that even a thing? Whatever…I’ve loved them before they came out with a plus line. I did get my hands on a few pairs of their denim and I’ve officially added them to my short list of favorites. And after checking out their new arrivals I knew I had write up a new “10 Favorites” post!
When I tell you I have wise friends, I really do! Take my beautiful friend Ivory. She taught me to not be afraid to shop in the straight size section. Just because it says a size on the tag, doesn’t mean anything. I’m glad I listened to her. That’s how I found what has become my favorite spring sweater.
I consider myself an equal opportunity shopper. If it’s an item I like, it doesn’t matter where it comes from. And believe me I will shop high and low for something I like. Did I forget to mention I also love a deal? Yes I do! Well…hello there 10DollarMall.com…where “Everything is $10 or Less!”
I live in Los Angeles, the land of curves, but apparently lack of curvy love. Months ago, I (accidentally) discovered that the Forever 21 located in the Beverly Center carried plus sizes. I was surprised, I mean it is Beverly Hills. And I think the only other store in that mall that carries plus sizes is Macy’s and possibly Ann Taylor (they go up to an 18).
Finding chic plus size belts can be a little difficult sometimes. I love how the right belt can do so much for an outfit. I appreciate how it helps define my high waist, among other things. It’s an accessory that can tie a whole look together. I admit I don’t wear them as much as I should. I realized that today, when I found these ten belts (below) that I really want…right now.
