I'm in a Fashion Quandry

I'm in desperate need of clothes. Work clothes mostly.  It's very hard to find clothes when you are plus sized. Thrift stores are not exactly filled with nice plus sizes. I don't like big boxy moo moos but I don't want to dress like a teenager. Can't designers make AFFORDABLE cute plus size clothes?  I just saw a really pretty dress in Lane Bryant. $119!!  Can't swing that. It's very disappointing.

  1. Lee Ann-can you wear pants? My work wardrobe consists of black dress pants (Kohl's sale plus promo) plus assorted tops/sweaters/scarves-everything is mix/match for more mileage. Have you tried different thrifts or consignments than you usually frequent? I just replenished my wardrobe with several tops-some were second hand, others JCPenny combining sale plus promo. Good luck!

  2. Bcak in the dark ages, when I worked, I had a similar quandry...I am very small, though. Back then, juniors were absurd, and petites were limited, and made for a MUCH older mind set. An outfit still go to, though, is a black dress wiith blazer, (I had many color combos back then, now it's only basic black. short jacket, or flowy-wrap based on event. (Not that I get out much anymore.) If the dress you like can be paired with other things you own, I say get it...it would be a base for many outfits. Find a good basic dress, skirt and pants, then mix with inexpensive tops. Keep perusing the thrift shops. And, I agree about clothing manufacturers....try finding appropriate yet stylish clothes for a tween girl....it's very hard,and I am one of the LEAST conservative people I know. Her wardrobe is leggings, and thigh length hoodies or tunics/swing tops. The jeans are either $$$ or just...NO.
