So while in Baltimore, or Bmore, as my husband calls it, I got to visit K Staton boutique, which is in the swanky district of Hampden. K Staton caters to women sizes 12+ and really provides that first class shopping experience that is really hard to come by in plus sizes.
In the boutique, I saw designs from SWAK, MonifC, JIBRI, Not Your Daughter Jeans, Ladan's Closet, Spanx & much more. She also had very cute accessories. Needless to say it was not hard to spend do some shopping while I was there.
Jade, the owner, is an absolute doll. I actually met her for the first time at Full Figured Fashion week a couple years ago and was I just thought her personal style & look is gorgeous. She did not disappoint this time around either. She is just as pretty and stylish as she can be. I wanted to put her in my pocket she was so cute. And if there is nothing more that I hate is when someone owns a boutique and does not bring their "A game" in their own personal appearance. Like how are you going to help me shop if you look a mess. Anyways, if you are in the area or just visiting it is definitely worth it to drop in. You can find her store at 1007A West 36th St, Baltimore, MD 21211. Check out her website for hours at www.kstaton.com.

Oh by the way, I purchased my very first dress from Modcloth. I have gotten quite a few questions about the sizing and until now I had now idea how the items fit. I think the first thing to realize is that Modcloth uses different vendors for clothing, so the the fit may be a little different from brand to brand. I ordered this dress in a 4x, because the measurements seemed to be on the more like a continuation of regular sizes, which will always run small. Could I have went down a size? Yes, but by ordering the 4x I got a great length on the dress. On a dress like this if it were in regular plus sizes I would have ordered a 2x or a 1x if I squeezed...LOL. As a girl who loves the nautical trend this dress really allowed me to look as if "I'm cruising the high seas" in the winter.
