shopping adventure and my plus size puffy vest for fall

Monday, September 26, 2011

It is such a trip that I feel like I know probably 10,000 people online, but rarely do I get the pleasure to have a shopping adventure and lunch with one of them. I was so thrilled when I heard that Lindsey Kremkau of TRADE Chic Plus Size Boutique and her boyfriend were venturing down into my neck of the woods for a little shopping trip.

The plan was to check out a cool little consignment boutique called DEJA VU CAMAS and see what plus size fashion treasures we could find. While there was just 1 rack of plus options, like most boutiques, the options were actually good and my friend Katie and I snagged some great pieces for fall (thanks Katie for taking these pictures!).

Of which, my favorite find...this totally fun $15 puffy vest. The hat and top I came already wearing, see below that I paired with a white Old Navy Cardi and my treasured Torrid Denim. I can not wait to get a long thermal top and wearing with my vest! weeeeeeeeee!!

I'm so glad I got to meet Lindsey in person, there's something awesome about that personal contact and so necessary. I got the pleasure to really know her and her passion and I have nothing but mad respect for her and her business, she is a beast! And I LOVE that about her. Be sure to check out her boutique, she launched an online shopping portion.

I'm a dork, I forced Linds to dork it up for me! I love fun pictures... :D
