What is your greatest concern about online shopping? My biggest concern with online shopping is that I am never sure whether something will fit or not. I can’t look at the garment in my hands and see it for myself.
What is your greatest concern about shopping locally? Oh gosh! The plus size fashion in my area is horrible. I hate the granny looking clothes or the extremely tight and revealing clothes. There is no balance here of good design.
What is your favorite store to shop locally? I love Old Navy because I can get a lot of basics there. I love their Rockstar jeans. They also have great tops and sweaters.
What are your top three online stores to shop?
ASOS is great because they have plus size clothes in my actually style. That is rare
Forever 21. I wish all Forever 21’s had an ample plus size department, so I wouldn’t have to buy things online.
What is your shopping weakness? I love anything quirky. The quirkier the better. It doesn’t matter if it is a dress, a shoe, or a purse. I collect a lot of vintage pieces that look strange too.
Fave color: I have three: blue, purple, and pink.
Fave trend: Hmm. I don’t really know. If I see something I like, I try. Usually though I am trying something I saw in an old magazine, picture, or movie.
Three things your blog readers might not know about you are:
- I’m going back to school for fashion design. I want to either design plus size clothes for a brand or department stores, or just do my own thing with my own line.
- I really love cooking. I used to love baking more, but I have finally found recipes that I really, really love to make and then… eat!
- I love art. I am very creative, and have come up with two different performance art pieces, but I don’t have the nerves and confidence to perform them.
