fatshion chic review | shop translated INES jetsetter silky top

Friday, January 07, 2011

There's NOTHING better about blogging than getting to try on amazing clothes that normally you're not able to. There are fantastic plus size options all over the internet, but so many big girls are too scared to buy online due to sizing/fitting, and I AM one of those girls. I mean how many times at an actual store do we haul in with 20 items, only to purchase 2??!! However, there are a few online stores I've shopped at a few times so I know their sizing, and in turn that lowers the return rate. Plus, you MUST know your measurements!

My favorite online stores are: Oldnavy.com (Womens), SizeAppeal.com, Torrid.com, ShopTranslated.com, Avenue.com (and Jessica London), LaneBryant.com.

Recently, I wore the most beautiful silky top I've ever worn. If you know me at all, you know I'm pretty monochromatic and VERY rarely sport prints, but this top was a show-stopper, and I think every single person I walked by at work complimented me....either because of the top, or the fact I wore something not solid?? LOL Either way, I was impressed by the quality of the top, stitching, etc, and the best part? No static cling?!!! Since the top is mostly Poly, I figured I was in for a kling-on war! :) But, no static. And, this top is a wrap top, so it's one big piece you wrap around you, and tie. Again, like most top, the silky bow would normally always un-knot, but this stayed tightly knotted all day, even after sitting and standing all day at work. A+ to shop translated for figuring that one out!

Here's how I looked in the INES collection Jet Setter top from www.shoptranslated.com.
