LINKED UP: HOUSE OF CHAPPLLE EDITION

In a World of Fashion I would love for everyone to cater to plus size women but they don't. So when you find  a brand that does hold on and hold on tight! I discovered House of Chapplle  after being referred to them by a spokesperson and hearing great talks of their brand. I was a bit hesitant because everyone that says PLUS isn't always PLUS.  I loved the fact that they showcased regular sized models along side a plus size diva. I see House Of  Chapplle isn't afraid to step out on whim for us curvy ladies.  I fell In love with their chain link dress and the price was awesome on sale for $30! when purchasing your order in the INFO box let them know  afatgirlblues sent you!















I paired my outfit with a pair of pink peep toe shoes and pink clutch both items were $25 dollars a piece!

FLY ON A DIME: TIPS FROM A SHOPPING ADDICT!





Okay everyone Knows I loveeeeeeee to shop but some wonder how I do it. Now I love a new bag just like the next girl but It doesn't come over night. I will give you tips to save money in other fields and keep a few hot dollars for a rainy day. As the economy picks up we as women must adjust our spending which means no more $800 dollars for sassy mitchell.




HAIR SAVINGS




TIP 1: Get your hair cut at a beauty school or training salon. Many who've tried it have been pleasantly surprised with the results, and happier with lower prices
( **If you are local try dorsey, lindsey hopkins or robert morgan)

TIP 2: Barter with a friend who can style hair.
 (**owning a boutique I have bartered with my nail tech and hair dresser for clothing items it's no money out of your pocket and you get to look fab!)



SHOPPING TIPS




 TIP 1:  Shop at consignment stores you can save big on designer items

TIP 2: SALE your clothing that you have out lived or know that you aren't going to wear again. It will give you money to play with without having to spend your own money.

TIP 3: Organize a "Can I Wear it Week" with good friends. Wear only things you haven't worn for 6 months or more. Ask your friends to decide whether each outfit is a keeper or one to retire. You'll find many things you think are unflattering or unstylish are actually fine

LUNCH TIME! 



TIP 1: If you can, store some food at work, like snacks, frozen entrees and canned soup. Leave them at the office so you're not tempted to spend when you're hungry.


TIP 2: If you forget lunch, go to the supermarket instead of a restaurant or cafe (I do this all the time you'd be suprised all the goodies you can get!)

I hope these tips have helped!
