Budget friendly Dresses:

Are you as tired as I am of going into a plus size clothing store and finding clothing that is way way out of your budget? 

I hate this feeling! In this blog post I want to share a few dresses that I have recently bought that are on the inexpensive side of clothing option. Plus super cute y’all! 

Dress #1

This dress comes in 20 different colors, can you imagine!? I am wearing the 3x in this dress which unfortunately is the largest size. It is beautiful and perfect for a date, cocktail party or night out on the town. It’s mid thigh and a bit flowy, fitted on top and sleeveless. Lace fabric dress it’s fully lined and so lovely. Pair it with a fabulous pair of heels or sandals and mint green rose studs for the perfect combo. 

Dress #2

Up to a 5x you say and in 26 different fabulous prints? This is a perfect maxi dress, hits me at the ankle, long sleeve with just the right amount of cleavage. At only $30 this dress is a bargain. Be sure to size up by one size for a better fit. I loved the casual yet fun spirit of this dress. It’s the perfect option for my babes that like to cover there arms or for you folks wearing this indoor where the air conditioner is blasting.

I wore this dress with these blue heels, but it would easily be paired with any shoe to dress it up or down. These shoes are some of the most comfy heels I have worn in a long time. Available up to a size 12 surprisingly.

Dress #3

Have you ever worn a dress with cupcakes and ice pops on it? Never fear, this dress by Cowcow is what our sweet dreams are made of. The dress is stretchy and comfortable it hits right above the knee and is sleeveless. Can you believe it’s only $20! Cow Cow makes loads of fun graphic printed dresses all of which I am totally in love with. This dress is perfect with sandals or solid black sneakers

Dress #4

I love sleeveless dresses more then anything. The cool breeze on my shoulders is amazing. This dress is feminine and a lovely floral combination in a flowy maxi dress. The material is super comfortable and I wore this dress without a bra. While you can totally dress this up, I choose to wear Birkenstocks and enjoy a dress that moves with me and is totally fashionable all at the same time. 

Dress #5

Yellow is one of my favorite colors. This dress is a bit more yellow then it shows up in the photo above. It has pockets! I love that this dress is inexpensive and on top of that it makes quite a statement. Yellow is bold and powerful. I love how it looks on my fat body. Short sleeves and a rounded neck showing a bit of cleavage. It’s not a body con but hugs my belly in a good way. I think you would like it. 11 different colors and only $22 y’all I’m already wanting to get another one. 

When I reach 10,000 Instagram followers I'm giving away a few fantastic gifts! A $200 gift certificate to the incredible queer tattoo artist Adriana. A $100 credit toward ice slippers, orthotics and compression socks from Heel that Pain. A few other brands and gifts are in the works.
