Hello Jewels, it has definitely been a while since I have posted a blog. I apologize for that. I have been terribly busy with getting things together for my undergrad graduation this December, SUPER EXCITED; and working on applications and things for my current job and future career.
With all of that aside I am still busy, and my boyfriend has been getting on me about what I’ll be wearing to a wedding he is in. All of this is because I treated him this way for the wedding I was in earlier this year. We are both great dressers so I don’t know why I was pestering him about what he would wear, because he knows how to dress and very well. So to start my quest for a wedding guest dress I started with my favorite store, FOREVER 21+. FOREVER 21+ is of course not a formal wear site; however, I have managed to find dresses in the stores and online that were suitable for an evening occasion. NOT THIS TIME AROUND. I had no luck with FOREVER 21+. So I called my sister, who is a fashion guru, and asked her for some ideas. She named the typical places, that I do not shop at, Macy’s, Dillard’s, and JC Penney. Sometimes I find myself getting a pair of shoes from Dillard’s or Macy’s, but I cannot stand a messy store, and most of the time these stores have clothes in different spots; I cannot shop that way, I need organization. So I thought of a few other places, but I still was not happy with what I saw. These stores include, Avenue, Lane Bryant, Dress Barn, David’s Bridal, and even Torrid. David’s Bridal would have been a great option until I realized that this wedding is in three weeks, and it probably would take three to four weeks to come in from a bridal shop, so that option was out.
From here, I decided to go a different route. You guys have probably been on these sites before, but I have never been on most of these. These sites have wonderful clothing for full-figured women. The only thing about a few of these is that the prices are a bit high. Of course, I read through reviews and product descriptions, and the clothing seem to have great quality so it would be worth spending your money on. Here are a list of those fabulous websites: Sonsi.com, Simplybe.com, and igigi.com. Simplybe and Sonsi have clothing for every budget; however, IGIGI is bit pricey.
I really like the dress on IGIGI. They show off curves and are quite sexy for formal wear. Simplybe and Sonsi are more like everyday clothing, and they have a few party/ special occasion dresses. I have not decided on a dress yet, and I am considering designing one of my own. Here are the ones that I am considering:
I like these dresses, but I will continue to shop and maybe make my own. I sometimes hate that I am a picky person, because it makes things twice as hard.
When the holidays come along and you need a dress for a holiday party, best friends wedding, or special event check out these websites. I hope this is helpful to some of you.
Have fun shopping JEWELS!
