Back at It AGAIN With the Sequin…


How long has it been? To long!  One day I will explain why I stopped blogging and why I’m starting again but honestly I just want to enjoy this slay. I’ve always been between a size 16 and 22. Take a stroll through my pervious pics and you will see just what I mean. No matter my size I managed to find pieces that not only looked good on my plus size frame but actually fit in with my aesthetic.  For the sake of being transparent let’s be honest once you “size out” of the typical junior sizing at stores like Forever21, on trend pieces and low prices become far and in between. So how do I do it? Vintage and purchasing off-season garments.

Now is the right time to collect your favorite leathers, motto jackets and trench coats. When the weather changes tons of items go on sale. Snatching up the things you know won’t go out of style is not just smart but cost-effective.

The store savers website CLICK  HERE  is a wonderful tool to use when looking to locate a thrift store in your area. Listen girls Value Village and Unique…. Bomb! Head to one soon! I purchased this amazing authentic leather jacket from the thrift store called Unique in Brooklyn. I don’t have the words to describe how attached I am to it. Lets just say I want to be buried in it!
