Hello! Allow myself to introduce…myself.
I am Joan and I live in Sacramento. I fled our fair city when I was younger to go to college, experience life,and slowly move back one block at a time. My second time around Sac, I met my husband, David.
Yada yada yada almost 10 years and 2 kids later, I am now a stay at home mom with a plus size bod and a bulging closet. My style is a mix of all the clothes and all the limitations that come with being full figured.
As a youth, style wasn’t really an option. Not just because I was fat, but because there was little offered that wasn’t a muumuu or a cropped, pleated pant. And I wore a uniform grades K-12. But college! Bless my dear, dear friends in college who showed me that I didn’t have to wear sad jeans and baseball tees. I could wear a skirt! I could wear a dress! Who cares if I get chub rub, everyone does!
But let’s be real here, it wasn’t till the invention of this wonderful thing called the interwebs and the smartyphones that I really found my clothed self. Cuz here’s the thing they don’t teach the full figured kiddos: a majority of the time shopping in stores isn’t worth it. So I am going to tell you where online I shop. What sizes fit me in which stores. Who offers free shipping/returns and who doesn’t. And who I follow on Instagram that influences me and how I dress (ps there is a lot of forever 21 and asos happening in this closet).
Also, I curse. A lot.
I already feel closer to you.
