***loving my hot pants!***

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

You ever have one of those feel good days? One of those days when everything is in place and you just feel like a thousand bucks ( a million is a bit excessive)? I am having one of those days. I bought these red slacks at New York and Co. for just $12! They fit like a gem and my butt looks GORG in them!

I am getting so close to Onederland ( I am at 218.6 emoticon ) and I am planning to be there by summertime. I am still not completely content with my body once the clothes come off, but I am loving the way I am feeling with my clothes on. I have been plus-size since I can remember and now I don't know where to shop. Does anyone have any little gems of stores or boutiques that they love? I like to shop online because I like to find different things that everyone won't have. I like glam, girly clothes with structure and a little vintage feel. Well I have to get going. Have a great day Sparklers!

    You look fab!!!
I love Marshalls....I find designers style for almost nothing, and they even have a nice selection for larger sizes, but I find more nice things for my girls (00 and 6) but my goal it to be a 14 before next Christmas and do a little shopping spree there for I recently discovered Lands end, sometimes kind of "old fashion" and expensive, but I only buy on sale, they have a few staples I like (linen shirts) and pants can be hemmed to my size for the quality is amazing. But Target is my favorite for sure, I buy a lot of clearance online, especially those special designer collection when they are 65% off, great quality, amazing price, they always make great gifts.

    If you don't plan on being in the same size for long (shrinking body) Thrift Stores are pretty awesome...i have recently feel in love with them. I have on a pair of New York & Co. slacks and a Ann Taylor Loft Top right now that I got at the Thrift Store for a total of $9.00 (3.99 top and 4.99 slacks) both of which still had the original sales tags on them. You can find a lot of good deals at Thrift Store you just have to be patient and look through the items to find the hidden gems (name brands for less). Looking good lady and I L-O-V-E the pants.

    Girl...YOU LOOK FABULOUS...and your energy in your blog is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!
You don't look 200NOTHING. So ONEderland is going to be muy caliente FOR YOU.
Keep up the good work.

And I am glad you asked the shopping Queen where to go...I LOVE TO SHARE:
If you can't find Forever 21 (who has plus sizes too)
Charlotte Russo
Body Central in the mall...they are ONLINE.

Don't buy their pants...they are not made for junk in the trunk but otherwise a large is roomy for ONEderland.
I buy one piece from one place...and another from another.
I also shop thrift stores which is PERFECT FOR A SHRINKING BODY.
I do not buy "junk" ONLY designer stuff I can't afford new...and sometimes I find things with the tags STILL ON IT! The only catch is you will have to go more often than you might shop. 1/2 price on holidaaaays! lol

(PLEASE CHECK OUT MY BLOG with my new bathing suit shots.)
I have come the road you are traveling. emoticon I am at the point where I like how I look WITH CLOTHES but now it is time to work on what I look like without them. THAT is what I am calling "my next level". The second phase of my journey.
We are gonna DO IT!!!

    Oh man... when I got down to a size 12.. Let me tell you: I loved to shop!!! The main thing was I could go anywhere! Even when I was in the 14/16 category, the options are wide open on places you could shop. I liked (and stilld do) JC Penny. They are decent priced and have a great selection. Once you are in the 18 and up sizes, some of the choices are not as great (not all of us like polyester in sherbert hues) but I was there the other day shopping with my sister. We were in the 'average' section and they had some of the cutest clothes! But, none went passed size 16. So I think you would have a great time finding clothing there that are hip and cute.
Oh I miss shopping.. :( Oh, not sure if they have them in your area, but TJMaxx, Marshalls, Ross all have cute clothes too. Have fun!!!

    LOL, you forgot to take a side-angle pic!

You don't look like you weigh anything close to 218. I'm assuming you must be pretty tall!

I have LOVED JCPenney for clothes. I know their new pricing structure is killing the company, but I love being able to walk into a store and know that I'm getting the right price without having to spend time on figuring out sales and coupons. Their St. John's Bay pants have a great fit on me. Once I get a bit of extra scratch, I'm going to be heading to NY&C. I could never pull off the bright pants like you can, but I love their business outfits!
