H&M Straight Sizes For Plus Size Body Types?

Have you walked into a straight size department store and saw so many cute things. Have you ever said to your self, "that would look like it would fit?" Those are my thoughts every time I walk into H&M. Their items are super cute, but I noticed some of their pieces are either oversize, spandex, or runs big. Would you believe that 90% of what I am wearing in this post is from H&M. I am a size 22 and I am wearing a large in their jacket and dress. On Snapchat, I posted this dress and many people were surprised that I was able to fit a large.

I actually shop in H&M, but not their plus size line. Since their plus size line is no longer in stores but online, I would often shop their straight size line, and no one would ever know. I have been doing this for years. I love H&M and their price point for their summer clothes is very affordable. They have been catering to my Afrocentric needs with their funky and tribal prints, so I do plan to buy more items soon. I also want to state that just because I am plus size, I will not limit myself to just plus size brands. Real fashionistas and stylists know this.

Here Are Some Tips For Shopping Straight Size!

  • Grab the biggest size! Most of these stores go up to a size Large or Xtra-Large.
  • Grab the items with stretch! If it has a great stretch chances are it will fit.
  • Grab the oversize items! I swear most of the oversize items are plus size items. 

Ladies! Have fun and try going into a straight size store and try your luck. If you're not comfortable, it's cool. Plus size fashion has evolved and you can find many plus size trendy clothing online :)




Change Is Good: Black & White For Summer

Its been over a month since I've relaunched my blog, and I am a  excited yet a little nervous about my revamp. As you all know blogging is a lot of work. It takes consistency and dedication. I knew that I wanted to comeback, but I needed a drastic change. If I want to blog for the long run, I will definitely need a team, and thank God I finally found that. As you can see my photos are a lot different from what you are use to. They are more editorial  and a lot more edgy than my typical setup. I am loving this change and my new direction.

Black and white is one of my favorite combos. I absolutely love this sheer polka dot top paired with this midi abstract skirt. I also love these booties. I posted them on Instagram and stated I would be wearing boots this summer. Therefore I thought they would work well with this look.

Every Women Needs A White Summer Dress!

Who else agrees with this title? There is just something about a white dress that I love. I believe tha every women should have at least one for the summer season. Its perfect for a festival, day party, brunch, concert, or a block party.  Speaking of block party, yesterday I attended William Okpo Block Party.  Although I am plus size, I find inspiration from their clothing line, of course it would be awesome if they created some plus size pieces, but for now I'll continue to find inspiration.

On Instagram, I asked my followers how would  they style this ankara clutch I purchase from that Bam street festival that I attended last weekend. I received so many answers. In addition, it seemed like majority of them agreed that something white would be the best choice. I swear I love my followers, I also gain inspiration from them as well.
