Lands' End Review // Striped Skirt

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

The people at Lands' End contacted me about trying out something from their plus size line for my readers. I was excited to try since I'd NEVER shopped at Lands' End, in fact, didn't realize they HAD plus size clothing?! But, went to the site and saw lots of great basic pieces that are like Old Navy but better fabric!

AND, since I never wear skirts and wanted to try one, this striped skirt jumped out at me. I'm soooooo loving it, so comfy, great fabric. I have to say the "convertible" part of the skirt, a band where you can fold over, under, not my favorite. Being a bigger girl, the damn thing always moves and the skirt inches north, you know?! But, I tacked it down with some thread and WAHLA, problem solved, no more readjustments every minute.

This is exactly the type of outfit I want to wear all the time, simple, comfortable, cute.
Just added a white Vneck long sleeve T with the sleeves hiked up a bit to show off my fun $12 watch from Kohl's. Added a simple necklace and my favorite silver gladiator sandals (I own one pair to try out the whole "gladiator" thing). And the key piece for me is the belt (which matches the silver in the shoes). This belt absolutely takes the outfit from ok to CUTE! It's a new purchase from CJ Banks, and that's ANOTHER shop I had NO clue was plus size?? Older demographic yes, but I can find something cute almost anywhere I go and this belt was such a find!!!!  The picture on the website does it NO justice.

Now I'm excited to try more stores I don't frequent, do you have any secrets??! Tell me on facebook!

Have a great week!
