There are so many women like myself who live for all things fashion. However, despite my admiration of designers and my desire to wear many of their beautiful garments that grace the pages of Elle, Vogue, W, etc., I am prohibited from lining my closets with their pieces. Why? Because I do not fit the fashion industry’s standard sizing (sizes up to 10).
Ladies of my size are often ignored by many designers and retailers. There are only a handful of stores (bricks and mortar) that actually cater to my size, but those stores either have little variety, the prices are high, or the quality is sorely lacking. This presents obstacles for women with curves (who are on a budget) when it comes to shopping for fashionable and affordable clothes. But all is not lost. It seems to me that all that is required to remedy this problem is a little creativity.
This blog is dedicated to all the curvy ladies who want to look great while staying within their budget. So, look for my rants and raves as I navigate my journey toward continuing to be shapely and chic.
By the way, this is me…Sheri… on my way to class…
Everything I am wearing is from Macy’s:
