How is it Friday already? My wedding is quickly approaching, we are about two weeks out, so for me, time is flying by. I have too much to do, to confirm, to finalize for it to be the weekend! Hahah!
The trees are starting to bloom in Winston and I just love seeing these white little flowers appear on all of the tree lined streets. Spring is one of my favorite seasons- you begin wearing cute sun dresses, wedges, pastels, etc and it seems like nature plays along with you! I purchased this floral wrap maxi dress from eBay last week. Did you know that 81% of all merchandise on eBay is new and can be purchased immediately through the “Buy It Now” option? I had no idea! Also, 61% of merchandise ships for FREE! This is a game changer, I literally hate paying for shipping, I just find it to be annoying and unnecessary so when a retailer offers free shipping, I am all in! I was so excited when my dress arrived at my doorstep only three days later!
I have said it before and I will say it again. I love wrap dresses, wrap tops, wrap skirts. I think they are super figure flattering and really allow you to adjust the piece of clothing to your body. In case you are interested, you can always type “wrap” in the side search bar on my blog and it’ll pull back previous post where I have worn wraps before! Now add a wrap to a beautiful flowing maxi dress paired with your favorite Sam Edelman heels and you know it’ll be a winner! There are a lot of curvy/plus size maxi dresses that can be found here! They are one of those items you can begin wearing in the Spring and continue wearing all summer long and through Fall!A lot of you have shared with me that you love following to see what I wear for my body type or ask me for my opinion on how to style something for you! I am always happy to share my thoughts and give you some advice!
I will say the one thing I have carried with me from since I started shopping for myself is that the size doesn’t matter, it’s how something fits you. I think so many of us are always so alert to the letters or numbers on our tags when really, we should focus on how something fits our bodies. If you are a curvier girl, a bit bigger of a girl, sometimes things just simply do not fit how they were cut to fit. You have to think the patterns and blocks of these garments are for slender sizes, for whatever reason that was always the standard fit. I think we have to be careful to not get upset about what the tags say but rather shop for clothing that will accentuate our best assets and make us feel good! It has taken me many, many years to really deeply recognize that there is not a certain size that is perfect. Every single one of us has been made differently and we need to celebrate that! So for my girls out there that need a bit more room, two of my favorite retailers offer plus sizing, Forever21 & ASOS and they can be purchased right here on eBay. You are able to filter (look to the left side bar) on condition of the item, buying option, product category and so much more! It makes shopping for what you have in mind so easy!
You know it’s funny, I have sold many items on eBay before and I always found that it was super easy to list an item to be sold, however, I really didn’t put much thought to it that it would be just as easy to shop from them! When I have something in mind to purchase, I’m going to check to see if eBay has it first now!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a good weekend!
