GC’s Top 5 Plus Size Shopping Sites for Fall Fashion

Hi Everyone- I am sorry GlamCurvy have been AWOL for the last few months. Life took place and new projects came my way I had to entertain. But anyway, I miss you all and still been following the plus size fashion industry. So much have transitioned in the plus size world since the summer. 1.) Increased media visibility to the plus size industry 2.) More leading designers offering collections sizes 16 and up.  3.) The variation of styles have evolved with similarity to the skinnys now. Well I am being honest. LOL.  We still have along way to go but I can see change and hoping it continues to represent us well.

With my time away, I started searching for who have the hottest looks that fit my style for fall fashion. Classy Trendy. I identified my favorite 5 shopping sites that I purchase from frequently. Drum roll please!!!!!

1. Boohoo Plus & Curvy Clothing My favorite right now. So many cute styles to select from and the pricing is perfect for my budget.

2. City Chic Plus Size Clothing – In love. Fabulous luxe looks with affordable prices.

3. Deb Shops  Who knew?  The Deb brand have been around since I was a kid in VA.  I haven’t seen an physical storefront in years. However, it was my favorite place to shop in my teenage years. And today, they still offer classy trendy looks I love. Great shoes, too!

4. Forever 21 – Plus Size Clothing – My backup. Affordable prices of jeans, tops, and they also have great online specials. The only thing is if you buy online they only offer a credit if you return it to the store. Bummer! But usually its okay.. I can find something to purchase in replace of my credit.

5.  Eloquii – Truth Serum. Just added to my bookmarks.  I was not a big fan of the Eloquii brand at first. I thought it was pretty standard and aligned more with Lane Bryant and Ashley Stewart typical looks. But over time I explored it more and came across a few looks I do love. Now it is a little pricey and sizes go fast but shop the sales. That’s the only time I peek…. and buy!

Curvy Words Magic

Due to LIFE, it’s been sometime since my last post but I saw a few curvy sayings that I used as affirmations while living curvy. With spring/summer approaching, I need a little pep to stay positive with life perception of what “CUTE” means in our society.  I hope these curvy words is a inspiration to someone because they were magic to my thoughts.

Workout Cuter than the Skinnies

I am 5’7 and wear a size 14/16 and I can feel the extra weight around my waist, thighs, and boobs as I get older.  I don’t want to be skinny but just healthier. About 7 years ago, I lost about 50lbs and gain back about 20 lbs overtime.  Ideally, losing 15-20 lbs would be awesome right now but I HATE working out. Now I do walk my dog everyday which gives me about 30 mins of a lite walk but no heart beat increase. It probably just help me maintain my weigh enough to slow down the rapid weight gain.  This spring, my goal is to carry my “lazy” butt to the park at least 3 times a week and walk for 30-45 minutes briskly to start this healthy process and have a little less wine and sugar, too! WALK off the weight that’s my GOAL.

Well we know the”skinnies”is taking over the gyms, parks, and streets with their committed energy, petite bodies, and fancy workout gear.  Right now, committing myself to their energy levels or desiring those petite bodies is not in my thought process. But the workout gear.. WE can SLAY it! Check out these fancy affordable threads to “workout cuter than the skinnies”….
