On a budget!

Below are my favorite places to shop for a curvy mama like myself seeking out comfortable, affordable, and stylish options!
1. Nordstrom’s anything!
Clothing from Nordstrom’s gives me an all time high. I don’t know what it is. I think it’s the quality of the fabric and fashion forward design. And I have no shame in telling you that I actually will not budget for stepping into an actual Nordstrom’s unless it’s for the cafe ha! But seriously, I will go to Nordstrom’s Rack, Hautelook, and yes Chicago and Arizona have Last Chance. Last Chance has unbelievable finds for just fraction of the cost. There. My secret is officially out! Fave brands to shop here are Vince Camuto, Sejour, Zella, Adriana Papell, Nic & Zoe!
Macy’s and I have a love/hate relationship. It’s either I love their selection or I hate their selection. Usually their fall collections are so on point. Summer stuff is not so hot at least with my luck. Pro tip is to wait til end of season to grab the sales. I’ve gotten steals for less than $10!
Price and style is on point with Shein. I must point out that the fabric is not the best quality but I guess you get what you pay for. And definitely pay attention to the sizing! They run super small. I feel like they cater to women in the 5’2-5’4 height. (Which is me!) But I can’t believe the price for what you do get!!! And I mean who wears clothes more than once right? Just kidding!

4. Forever 21
I love the price point with forever 21 however it is hit or miss. I feel like they cater some styles to taller people! However, when you find something and it’s in the right price point it is awesome!!!! I recently snagged a tan/brown maxi skirt that is so comfy and was super affordable. If you’re in my area, Yorktown is my favorite spot to hit up Forever 21! Has a vast stock of plus size apparel and this spot is so organized! Kudos to management and employees!
I really really like this brand! They usually have clothing on sale and their clothing fits perfectly per the measurement. I ordered one size up just in case and that was a mistake. But I truly love how versatile this brand is and they cater to those who want to be a bit of a sexy mama or a conservative mama!
All these shopping spots provide a great price point, chic fashion styles, oh and fits this curvy mama!
Til next time Mamas!
