I don’t know if you know this..

But City Chic’s coupon code for 30% off, 3ON3W isn’t working.. at least not for me.
After my Forever 21+ rant, I really wanted to buy clothes that I know will fit me and make me feel beautiful. However, four shirts came out to be $216 and when I plugged in my coupon code, it wouldn’t work.

I’m not sure if you guys know, but I’m in college and can’t afford $216 worth of clothes. Even when I’m not in college, I can’t afford that. I don’t understand why plus size clothing retailers must charge us so much money. It’s because we buy it because we NEED clothes. Seriously, we can’t walk around because it’s like illegal, but they overcharge us all the time and it’s not fair. Especially since CC’s clothes aren’t really the best quality. If I’m paying 50 bucks for a shirt, I’d rather just not spend the money at all. It’s complete and total bullshit and I’m not happy about this.

Grant it, CC has free back and forth shipping, but still, it’s not worth even buying anything for that price. As a result, I am in serious depression right now. I don’t get why I can’t buy somewhat nice clothes for a somewhat inexpensive price.

Sigh.

Annoyed

I’m sorry I haven’t been posting, but I have a lot to tell you about. On a meaner note, I just received a package from Forever 21. I was really excited because they had free shipping, so I bought three shirts and two necklaces. The total came out to be $80. I just got my purchase today and am less than happy.

Literally, I’m frowning. That’s how annoyed I am. First of all, one of the necklaces was nice. The other one, not so much. Not only was it not that nice, but one of the feathers was off it before I even opened it up. And if you don’t know, all jewelry from F21 is final sale. So you know me, I called the corporate offices and freaked out. It’s not longer in it’s original package, I put it in a baggie, but I don’t even care. I shouldn’t have to pay money for something that has poor workmanship.

My next problem was with two of the shirts. Well, this shirt was nice (Shimmer Leopard Sweater). It’s a little small right now because I ordered a size smaller than I usually do because I’ve been losing weight. But I’m keeping it because it looks cute and will give me an incentive to lose more weight. Now here’s where Ms. Carly gets angry:

1. Cargo Pocket Button Up – It looked like absolute shit when I pulled it out of the packaging. It was all wrinkled, but I didn’t care. I tried it on and I was right, it was absolute shit. It was basically see through because there was nothing to it and the way it folds over looks just weird. I’m not sure if it’s my body shape or something, but it’s extremely unflattering to me and just made me look boxy. I was really upset because I am losing weight and I should feel confident about myself and this shirt made me feel really crappy about how I looked.

2. Crochet Trim Peasant Top (White) – Now, I was a little iffy about this shirt when I bought it first. But, I tried to stay positive, so I bought it. The top part of it actually looked really cute, but it was the whole fold over thing that just looked weird on me. And again, it was basically see through because of the lack of material to it.

And I know, I know. I PAID cheap money for this. But I just feel like it was completely unflattering. Grant it, it looks nice on the XS model, but think about the regular plus sized girl. who doesn’t look good in everything she wears. I feel like all the clothes look perfect on the model when in reality, they’re actually shitty clothes that don’t look good on people normally. I’m not going to lie, I’ve had positive experiences buying from Forever 21. I give them credit when credit is due, but this was so disappointing. I was SO excited, I thought it was going to look great and I just feel fat and ugly now.

Clothes shouldn’t make you feel fat and ugly. And it sucks that I now have to spend like 8 bucks on shipping because Forever 21+ creates crappy clothes. Rant is over. Sorry.

Selling Some of My Old Clothes

Hey everyone,

I’ve lost some weight recently (I’ll post about it soon!) and some of my clothes don’t fit me anymore. Since I REALLY need new clothes because my clothes are all big now, I’m selling some shirts. I’ll be adding more and more to it every so often. But I have like no money to buy clothes, so this is my only hope, haha.

If you guys want me to send you pictures of me wearing some of the pieces, just message me and I’ll be glad to! Please, seriously check them out. I really am dying here on money, lol.

Thanks and check it out!

My Lovely Readers,

I am sorry for not posting lately. It was really hard to get back into the swing of things this semester. It’s been really hectic and honestly, I cannot wait to finish up this semester. I’m taking 19.5 credits and  am basically dying, so just bear with me if I don’t post as much as I should be.

Any who, exciting news of the day… I’M ON A DIET. A real diet that I promise to keep through with because 1. it’s good for me and 2. I’m paying for it. What diet do you think I’m on right now?

Take a guess…

Weight Watchers! I’ve never truly been on Weight Watchers before. I used to cheat the system; I had my friend give me some of their old books and I would just do everything, just not go to the meetings. Now, I decided to pay the $40 a month and am officially on Weight Watchers, meetings and all!

Let me tell you, I really enjoy this diet! It’s been two weeks and I’ve lost 4.4 lbs already! Speaking of a diet, I’m about to run to the dining hall. I’ll do a post tomorrow, hopefully! 🙂

xoxo
