Plus- Size Special Occasion Dress Shopping

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:

This dress can be dressed up with blingy gold jewelry and gold bangles. Then, for color add colored shoe, like sapphire. IGIGI.com

All this dress would need is long gold earrings, gold bracelets on one arm, and a big gold/black ring on the opposite hand. Gold sandals would complete the look. IGIGI.com

This is such a cute and simple party dress; that would look nice with red or blue pumps, and matching jewelry. No necklace for this dress, just dazzling earrings, cocktail rings, and complimentary clutch.

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!
