Everyone may love to splurge now and then but even the most dedicated shoppers that I know love the thrill of a bargain. And I'm no different. There's nothing like finding the perfect dress and then realizing it's also within your budget.
I know how hard it can be to find clothing that's affordable and fun, but also looks expensive. I feel like I'm always on the hunt and sometimes it feels like I've exhausted my options. So the best feeling is finding a new place to shop that fills all of these qualities.
And I can definitely say that about Alloy Apparel.
When I was a kid, Alloy used to send catalogs to my house with tons of adorable junior clothing. So when I heard they were relaunching their plus size line A+ (not only with clothing, but also the inclusion of images with plus size models), I was so excited.
I had a fabulous meeting with their team and they were open to hearing suggestions about the industry and the plus size consumer. It's great to see a brand care about their customers and it's refreshing when plus is treated the same as any other department.
I ordered this dress - called the "Carrie Side-Ruched Dress" in wine and let's just say it's pretty damn sexy. It's a great fit (although keep in mind that their sizing is junior sizing, so it runs smaller than standard Women's). It's a tad sheer so you definitely want to wear the right undergarments with it, but it's amazingly lightweight and will work well as a transition piece from summer into fall.
I also ordered these sexy cobalt heels to add a bit of color to the look.
So be sure to check out Alloy Apparel's website and their social media.
And in some exciting news, I'll be teaming up with them for a fab giveaway in the coming days, so definitely stay tuned to the blog.
Have a wonderful weekend!
