Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I have always been a firm believer that you can find stylish clothes on a budget. With major chain brands like Target and Kohl's becoming the go to stores for luxury designers to present their more affordable bridge lines, a girl could easily find a great outfit for under $100.
Now when I think of budget friendly stores to find stylish clothes I never really think of Walmart. It actually wasn't until I went to the Just My Size symposium that I even considered buying clothes at Walmart. I know people have been giving pretty good reviews on a few lines from Walmart like Norma Kamali and Miss Tina, but, I still never considered it. I received a gift card to Walmart for attending the JMS fashion show and I thought what better than clothes to use the gift card on. I cruised the website and checked out Miss Tina's line and Norma Kamali's line and I found some really cute pieces at very low prices.
Although I was skeptical, I still decided to order. I bought a black and red striped skirt from Norma Kamali and a black sheer ruffled front top. Both pieces really caught my eye and I knew they would work together creating a no brainer outfit. I must say for the prices, I was pleased with the quality of the pieces 9for right now, we will have to wait and see how they look after the first wash). Although the skirt is polyester it had a little weight to it. I liked that the skirt was full and that the pleats weren't too tight and structured. I liked how the skirt draped over my hips, however, it was really windy yesterday and the skirt kept flying up showing all my goodies (not a good look). I'll be sure to wear it in the summer on a really hot and humid day with no wind. The blouse was thin and sheer but it didn't feel rough and itchy like some cheap sheer items can feel. I also loved how the sleeves were flowy and giving a batwing effect.
Overall my entire outfit including the trench and the shoes was $100 exactly. That's what I call style on a budget.
