VICTORY: Size 16!

I have been shopping at Meijer for a while now. It's got clothes along the same line of Target but I am much more fond of Meijer. When I first started shopping there, I was a size 20 in jeans and a size 1X in tops.


I started losing weight/inches and began shrinking a little. Eventually I was an XL (which, in this case, is smaller than a 1X) then even a L in some clothes (jackets, mostly). I shrunk in jeans too, getting down to a 16W (and those are feeling REALLY loose lately).

I was hell bent on getting a summer dress this year. I wanted one last year but they didn't have any thing cute in my size. I would get all depressed and blah blah blah.... but this year I was determined to find something I loved.

So we went to the mall. I looked in Torrid and Deb (they carry plus sizes now! YAY!)

I found a lot of things I loved and a lot of them cost $50+ which is too much (right now)

I went back to Meijer, where I found this beautiful dress. Tell me what you think...

Obviously, I feel a little sexy in this ... size 16 dress. And the color is so me! I love purple and teal, what better combo is there??


  1. That dress is totally adorable!! Enjoy your new summery dress!
