Shopping Straight (Part II)

My previous post was on how to shop straight size.  I had a reader ask me to post an outfit in regular sizes, so she could see the fit on a plus size woman. (Please note that depending on size/weight/height variations a garment may fit me differently then it fit you.) I often incorporate straight sizes in my posts, but I never just outright say this is plus or this is straight.   Everything on this post is from the regular size section.   I wore this to breakfast with my visiting sister-in-law.  I love these shoes and loved them with this outfit this morning while looking in the mirror.  After seeing the photos, I feel like I could have made a better shoe choice.  Cher said not to trust those mirrors.  Anyways, I adore these shoes and they are incredibly comfortable to walk in.  I hope they make more colors.  Some of you may recognize them as being very similar to the Valentino shoe that has been circulating Pinterest forever.  I wanted those for so long, but as most of you know designer shoes rarely fit wide feet.  Unfortunately for me , Fred Flintstone and I from the ankle down could be twins.  

Style Note:  This Asos skirt is so adorable and even cuter in person.  Those polka dots are transparent.  The lining of the skirt is a little short, because it is meant for a person size 14.  I like the shortness, because it brought out the transparency of the polka dots.   The size chart says the waist of this skirt should fit up to a 35 inch waist.  My waist hovers between a 38 and 42.  That's depending on how much of a good girl I am.  HA!  The waist had a little bit of give.   Oh and total for this outfit (skirt, shoes, and belt) is $71.  I felt like I needed to shout out that inexpensive find.     


Outfit:  Skirt - Asos, Top - Asos, Shoes - Torrid, Belt - Target

*Update:  No sooner do I post about this skirt, it soon sells out in the size 14.  Here are some other options that I think will work.

  1. Love it!! Love the fact that all of it is from straight sizes, as it makes me (and probably other readers out there) see that we can find good stuff anywhere =D

    Plus, you look adorable in those shoes! And I get the Fred Flintstone analogy...same here =P

  2. Have you shopped at eshakti.com at all? Your skirt reminds me of some of theirs. They have an amazing rotating stock and everything goes from 0-6x, plus you can have anything custom sized for only $7.50. I sound like an advertisement, but truly, I have so many things I love from them (mostly dresses, some skirts & tops). And if something doesn't fit - returns are super easy! Thought you might want to check them out if you haven't yet :)

  9. Hi Chasity,

    I was wondering what do you wear under a skirt of this type. I am pretty old fashion and I do not agree with my undergarments showing through my skirt. If and only if you didn't wear a spanx, what else would you recommend to wear under thin materials. Personally I am still a slip type girl, but looking for some other options. Thanks!

    1. Hi Angela, There was a lining that came with that skirt that was long enough to cover my foundation. You can wear it without as well. The lining was long enough for that, but it just wasn't long enough to cover the full length of the skirt. In general, I wear a nude undergarment, so generally I don't have any issues with my spanx showing just because it looks like my second skin. I haven't worn a slip in years...you'd be surprised that just having on a foundation that is the same color of your skin works.
