Affordable Fashion Part 1

ūüôā So today I figured I would keep it short and sweet.

Being a girl, I feel like wanting to have pretty things and shopping is just in our DNA. ( maybe not for all of us but most. Although I do think that all girls do love these things some just don’t know where to start or find what speaks to them.)

Maybe that explains my excessive online shopping habit and Sephora addiction.

For the past week I’ve been scouting around trying to find the perfect pair of Plus Size Boots that actually fit and some cute staple pieces for work. ( Stay tuned for that Haul Post! )

& I personally have so many favorite stores I love to check out and that got me thinking about what other majestical stores I don’t even know exist! So I thought I would share some of my personal Go to stores!

1. My personal favorite . Forever21¬†.// Not Only do they have stuff for almost everyone! Young, Male, Female, Plus! But they actually have a lot of affordable ¬†stuff ( I’m usually a clearance shopper ) It’s a Win win in my eyes!!

& the accessories department is one of my favorites! ( especially the rings & hair clips! )

2. It’s Growing on me, Torrid..// I usually come here to look at .s h o e s. and ¬†.a c c e s s o r i e s. ¬†During Holidays I find that they have the best options for Plus Size Costumes and Accessories. I will say shoes wise, order a half-size up! ** They have the best clearance sales so always keep a look out for discount codes before making any final purchases.

3. New on my exploring list; Modcloth ! They have clothes for everyone as well & lots of cool random stuff ( imagine Target meets vintage cool shit. )! They are modern with a hint of vintage , so you’ll have fun exploring around their site. Make sure to click around. & I just read an article that they are getting more designers for Plus Sizes as well so keep a look out for that! ** Comment or Tweet me and I can send you a 15$ off coupon for your purchase.

4. My Secret Place, 599Fashion. Here’s the thing, Everything in here is 5.99 OR LESS. Yes you read that right, five dollars and ninety nine cents OR LESS. I like to keep this place in my arsenal, It’s VERY affordable but definitely hit & miss quality wise and style choice wise. I’ve gotten a lot of amazing pieces from this place, lots of my go to cardigans or cute work shirts, great quality. But every now ¬†and then you may get a dud; not so average piece . Think along the lines of D.E.B quality.

**Beware: Clothes go fast on here, so if you see it.. GET IT. If you like it a lot; get two! Learn from my mistakes. They don’t restock! Once It’s gone, no chance!¬†

Doing It Plus Sized

Cupcakes, chips, pop .. name it all. I Loved it & well lets be honest I still do. Chips might be my weakness; it’s the crunch factor. Got to have it. BUT I don’t need it that’s for sure.

Hi. You can call me Liv.

I’ve been plus sized my whole life, well maybe except when I was the cuttest mad little turd running around at the age of 5. But other than that, over weight for as long as I could remember. I’ve been through it all .. name calling, untreated depression , hopeless, binge eating , diets , the whole thing. Jr.High & H.S weren’t the best but bareable due to my semi niceness and somewhat comedic personality.

Pretty much my whole life I’ve tried to ignore who ¬†I was or becoming, out of sight out of mind.. but one can only ignore mirrors for so long or take sooo many high angled selfiess before they have to face reality. I will never be skinny, nor do I want to be. But I WILL be fit and healthy I can promise you that.

Instead of trying to fight and ignore who I am ; like its some big secret… I’m going to accept and embrace it ! I AM A ¬†YOUNG PLUS SIZED WOMAN. & Even though ¬†I am such, ¬†I CAN STILL LOOK DAMN GOOD and I have every right to do so!

Skinny does not define sexy, CONFIDENCE defines sexy!

I would have loved to have someone show me that its okay to be plus size when I was younger and how to dress myself and what styles suited me.  & WHERE to buy such clothes and accessories! But no such luck, theres so much I want to do with this blog, Show you PS Girls to love yourself, YOU CAN look just as good as those skinny bitches!

It’s okay to be happy with who you are and its okay to accept who you are.

You are not alone, I am  here to help and guide you style wise, Ive been there and done that!

Like I said I am overweight and PlusSize , I’m on my weightloss journey to a healthy me but am aware I will never be a size 2 ! I just wish to be a happy and healthy woman AND work it for all my plus sized woman out there!

Accept what you cannot change, Change what you cannot accept.
