This week I'd planned to share with you some cool places to find 'Middle of the Fashion Lane' style, (meaning not a teenage look, nor a conservative dated style). I always recommend looking for your stuff at thrift shops, but sometimes you just can't find what you're looking for. Here are a few places I've found where I can find youthful, decent, well priced looks...
1. Sears Yep, times they are a'changin! They have a new line from French Connection called UK Style, very modern and priced right (I get it on sale). Also their latest Jr. addition, 'True Freedom', and the Kardashian collection (heavy on the price, but they go clearance quickly). These collections offer up to size 15Jr and XL. The Kardashian stuff is very roomy as well.
2. Gabriel Brothers A mixed offering, but well worth the dig for cheap quality brands and bras are super cheap there. (Kind of a cheap TJMaxx/Marshall's)
3. JCPenny's They don't have as large of a selection as they used to, but their ANA collections are very stylish and fits a wider range of sizes, plus I just got a Liz C. poncho for cheap!
4. Dot's For cheap trends, this is your spot. Their online store sucks, but their walk-in locations are loaded. Just remember, verrry cheap stuff-fast fashion. Great selection of hats,scarves and accessories. Their plus section offers a good selection.
F21: best funky cheap leggings
Newport News Outlet: (online) great clearance, good quality, great quality leggings in their Shape FX line. Their faux leather is better quality as well.
Of course, we can't forget Target... but that's common knowledge!
( dress: Dot's$18.oo - wool hat, Newport News$7.50 - scarf: Gabriel Bros.$3.99 - flats, Goodwill$3.00 )
Cat-eye sunnies, $1.00 Gabriel Bros. sidewalk sale
cotton turtleneck: Sears 1/2 off (6.00 I think)
I hope that gave you some new places to check out.
Have a kick-ass weekend!
