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!

OOTD: :)

So here are picture from my friend’s birthday party two weeks ago. I got this shirt at Forever 21, it’s called the Sheer Button Up Top. Online, they only have it in black currently but let me tell you, it’s ADORABLE in the white. Like seriously, I loved this outfit. I got so many compliments from my friends. I love the way it flares out at the side (you can see it in the first and last picture).

My one complaint is the way it gets longer at the back. I mean, this is more of a personal problem. I only had one cami and it was a lot longer than the front of the shirt. It’s hard to explain, but I folded my cami so it was shorter. It’s just that when I wear the cami at it’s regular length, it was longer than the shirt in the front. I really can’t explain this, lol. So my one piece of advice would be to make sure you have a shorter cami to wear under it because it’s see through, obviously.

I wore this shirt with a CC cami underneath, then I wore dangly earrings (they broke, so I don’t have a picture of them), an Anne Klein watch (the one I wanted for xmas!), and the necklace was from Urban Outfitters. I paired it with guess what, my black Bandolino boots. A better idea would have been to wear my brown boots, but they have heels on them and since I walked to my friend’s house, I didn’t want to wear heels lol. I also wore a brown headband with it. Oh! And CC jeans.

I really like this shirt. I wore it two nights ago too when I went to the city. It’s more of the kind of shirt you wear going out. It’s a cute shirt, but seems a little dressed up in my opinion for class or something. I also think it needs to be accessorized in order for it to work really well. I also unbuttoned my first two buttons so that the cami showed over the top. When it’s buttoned all the way, it’s kind of blah in my opinion.

Yay! Comments? xoxo

Forever 21+ Success

If you read my last post, you’d see that I had some trouble when shopping at the Forever 21 on Long Island. But I still had some hope left in me when I went to NYC, which is like one of the bigger Forever 21 stores ever. Incase you were wondering where it is, it’s in the middle of Times Square and it is HUMONGOUS. It is four floors, YES I SAID IT.. FOUR FLOORS of adorable clothing at a cheap price. I love it.

So, I went to the plus size section and it was alright. First of all, I wish it was a little bigger. I know it “technically” is still a new business venture of Forever 21, but I wish it was bigger. It took up about I’d say 1/6 of the third floor. The floors are big, I’d just like to see more of a selection. I’m going to stop bitching now, let’s get to the review of my shopping day experience.

So I’ve been DYING for a blazer, I got money from my mom’s boyfriend for a blazer and when I shopped at Torrid, I couldn’t find any blazers that looked good. I always have trouble with jackets and stuff for some reason, City Chic jackets never worked and Torrid’s were always a little weird on me. And I know Forever 21 has some cute blazers, so I first started trying the blazers on. They fit pretty well, but the problem was that the sleeves were too long. And even when I rolled up the sleeves on the blazer, it just didn’t look that good. It was really upsetting, but I persevered, knowing that I had to find something cute there. I couldn’t give up hope over something silly like a blazer.

So my mom and I shopped around the section. I learned that at Forever 21, you have to do A LOT of digging around. The store is messy and there’s always like clothes packed on the racks. When you grab one shirt, three other shirts fall off and it’s just really frustrating to shop there. But luckily, I was able to find a couple of cute items that I’m really happy about.

First, I found this amazing Red Fleece Jacket. The jacket also comes with a hoodie in gray which adds a cute touch. I can’t wait to take a picture wearing it because it seriously is so much cuter in person than it is online. It’s not that heavy though, but I’m not expecting it to be at the price. The only complaint I really have is that it has a deep v-neck when it’s buttoned. So you basically always have to wear a scarf with it. But it’s really cute and it looks a lot more elegant than a 30 dollar purchase. A++++++ So happy with this purchase.

I really love one of my sweaters that I got from Forever 21 over the summer, it was really comfortable and cute, so I was looking for another one. I luckily found this shirt, the Heathered Crochet Bib Top. It’s really cute and is perfect just to wear with jeans. I really like it because it’s nice enough to wear to something nice, but makes a quick easy outfit that’s not only cute, but comfortable to wear. A-

The last thing I got as was the Striped Bow Swing Tank. This shirt is SUCH a steal! It is a cute shirt and was only $8.80. Like I would buy any shirt despite what it looked like as long as it fit for that price. It’s really cute with the bow and sits well. I feel like it’d be a perfect shirt for when it gets hotter. I also was trying it on and put a jacket over it and it also looked good. A

The last thing I got is my favorite shirt ever. Although it hasn’t been posted on the F21 website yet, this is the closest thing I could find. The Eyelet Back Blouse is really similar to it. The only difference is that the shirt has a cream/see through color to it and there is like a racerback design on the back of it. It seriously though is one of my favorite shirts I’ve ever gotten. I wore it out the other night and got SO MANY compliments on it. Especially when it’s paired with great accessories. I was trying it on in the changing rooms or whatever it’s called and couldn’t stop smiling once I put it on. It looks exactly like something my friends would wear. I’ve always complained that I just want to look like all other girls my age, so it was really nice to do that. A++++++++++++ A+++++++

Let’s not get ahead of ourself, last time I bought like 50 shirts and was head over heels in love with Forever 21. I got a couple of items, my total was 66 bucks (which was lovely), but I just wish there was more of a selection. F21 clearly has a great design team because so many people shop there to begin with. I just wish they would get the designers that make clothes for the skinnier people to get clothes to make for us.

Anyways, comments are always appreciative. xoxo

Forever 21+ Fail

My older brother’s girlfriend gave me a Forever 21 gift card for Christmas. So my mom and I decided to venture out a couple days after Christmas and went shopping to get me some cute plus sized clothes. I’ve only gone to the Forever 21+ in NYC and last time I went, I bought so many clothes and they were all cute! So my mom and I drove like a billion miles to the only mall on LI that had a Forever 21+. And once we got there, let me tell you how absolutely PISSED I am at Forever 21.

First off, the store was a MESS. Grant it, F21 is always a mess because it’s F21. Bu this time it was a caps lock mess, which is extremely messy. Once I walked into the plus size section, I automatically got a headache and had to mentally prepare myself for the digging that was about to occur.

As I browsed for about an hour through EVERY SINGLE rack of clothing, I came up with nothing. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. It was such a disappointment. All the clothes were boring as hell. Just bland t-shirt and lots of dresses. I understand that New Years Eve was a couple days away (from the time I went shopping), but it was like a couple of shirts and a billion dresses.

It was really such a disgrace. I made my mom drive 45 minutes to go to a crappy ass F21. It was messy and all the clothes were boring and crappy. Grant it, we all know that the materials are crappy. But there was ONE jacket that was adorable that was in my size and guess what? The zipper was broken off of it. It’s just really depressing.

However, I’m going to NYC tomorrow and will be hoping that my gift card will be put to good use. If F21+ sucks, I’m going to buy scarves and lots and lots of earrings and necklaces lol. But anyways, quick post. See you all later this week! xoxo

It’s been a while..

Merry Post Christmas everyone! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Post Kwanzaa! ..is hanukkah still going on?

Anyways, I’m sorry for the lack of posts. But I’m back. I promise. If not, you’re more than welcome to send me hate mail: fashiondatfits@yahoo.com. 😉

Now to the pics:

Okay, I went to a frat this night. I wore City Chic dark skinny jeans. My shirt was from City Chic as well. The cardigan was from Torrid. And I wore uggs from Target. The earrings were from Forever 21. The cardigan was from about two years ago and I’m not going to lie, it’s one of the cutest pieces of clothing I have. Whenever I wear it, people are ALWAYS complimenting me. I wish I could show you a better, close up version of the design, but I left my camera at school and it’s not on the site anymore.

To be honest, my cardigan reminds me of a vera bradley design. It has that cute design with adorable colors and everything, you know? And my shirt, I really like it but I HATE the color of it. When I saw the CC shirt online, I thought it was white. But it’s more of a cream color so it kind of looks like a washed out white whenever I wear it. So my mom always tells me to throw it out, but I like the shirt too much to throw it out. CC jeans are amazing, enough said. I just ordered two more pairs because they’re on sale right now.

This outfit is perfect for anything. I was in a rush, so I just wore what I wore that day out that night. It’s cute, comfortable, and adorable. A+

I’ll be posting more, promise. Comments? xoxo
