Places I've Never shopped

I consider myself somewhat of a shopaholic.  I shop pretty often and could almost all day everyday if I had the funds to do so.  But of course like many people I am a repeat offender.  My heart longs and caters to some of the same shops.  Just like a Doctor or a Hairstylist when you find the right one that never seems to steer you wrong you keep coming back and back.  Thats how I am with ASOS, Forever21, Target, Torrid, K-Mart, Ross, Marshalls, Ashley Stewart and my favorite thrift store in Hamilton, NJ.  I've had a bad experience with London fashion super store EVANS, that has prevented me from shopping there again although I often look through their catalog longing to wear their items.

This year I recently started shopping from SimplyBe and absolutely love it.  The cut, the fit, the style, the fabrics they leave longing for more.  I wish there were possibly a little more affordable but I do believe their clothes are worth it.  I also returned to shop at Lane Bryant.  Usually finding their clothes to be somewhat off trend, it is my understanding they have a new creative director and was bought out charmers shoppes inc..  However I have conflicting stories to know the truth of that rumor but now I think they are starting to cater to the young plus size women and still keep their solid following of the working/business plus size women.  With that said, I have made some fabulous purchases from them as of late. 

Stores however that I am eager to try out are as follows:

Modcloth is top on my list.  The fact that they have a large selection of clothes that go up to a size 4x truly turns me on.  Saddly they seem to sell out of their VERY plus size stuff quickly.  Visually I see why...they have vintage or vintage inspired pieces that big girls long for.  Those old classic Donna Reid cuts or those festive paterns from yester years.  They are exspensive at least for me but are made in America which totally makes me want to support!  They seem like rare artisian Gems. 

nakimuli run and owned by a funky little chick named Tennille Nakimuli caters to the woman pushing the plus size boundaries.  She makes straight sizes and plus sizes and custom pieces all out of Brooklyn.  Many Celebs curvy and not (Jill Scott & Erykah Badu) have been spotted rocking her stuff.  I have been in awww of her things for a while and soon I will be coping my first piece of hers.  Definitely a New Years resolution.  Please check her out.  Follow her on Instagram she is amazing.

17 Sundays Is a Australian based company that has very interested jackets and other cute items that definitely make me wanna possibly explore making a purchase.  The name is also fitting, they were  going for what it was like when we were 17.  But I do find them extremely exspensive.

donatellas WOW~!  This is a site that I will probably make a purchase as soon as Christmas is over and I'm done shopping for others.  They have leggings, tights and hoisery that goes up to like a 7x!!!  Thats too cool, you can't say they discriminate and they have free shipping worldwide from LONDON!  I'm in love!

out of the corner boutique These clothes are sooo cute so trendy.  I discovered it recently when Mia of mentioned them on one of her post.  Most of the clothes I want are sold out for the season.  So I'm really looking forward to their spring styles.  Look at this...

It is apart of my new years resolution incorporate some of these fashions in my day to day wardrobe!
