4th of July Sale-abration!

There are so many good reasons to go shopping this weekend.
1.) It's hot out. Which is nice unless you're incredibly fair-skinned and maniacal about avoiding a tan (like moi').

2.) Our economy can use the boost (I'll never get over using that as an excuse to shop - hello! It's patriotic.)

3.) There are a TON of great sales!

Here's a round-up of my favorite sales of the weekend, plus my picks for what should be in your shopping cart.

Sealed with a Kiss
I love supporting small businesses and, while Sealed with a Kiss is a little bigger than a neighborhood boutique per say, they're still a smaller company with a passion for beautiful, affordable plus size clothes. Which is why it's such a big deal for them to offer 30% now through Tuesday.

Use coupon code FIREWORK to snag a few of their everyday basics and their latest & greatest:

The Pocket Drape Dress is so incredibly flattering... and who doesn't like pockets?? I'm a big fan of any dress that will conceal what's going on in my tummy area AND let's me carry around lipstick and a credit-card (sans purse).

The Amber Shrug looks good over anything - tanks, sleeveless dresses, tee-shirts - without looking like an after-thought.

I'm sorta obsessed with the Emmylou Top. Boho chic is SO not my look...but this shirt has the perfect combination of bust-enhancing/tummy concealing features that I can't stop thinking of ways to work it into my wardrobe.

City Chic
Of course I'm a fan of supporting brands that are made in the USA...but it's also a very American thing to do to show a little love to our allies. City Chic is one of my favorite brands, and the fact that they're Australian just mean they're a little more laid back and more prone to sales.

Their fabulous clearance sale persists with such gems as the Striped Cowl Neck Top.

Love a good Contrast Trim Cami underneath a cardi or a blazer.

I know High Waist Shorts might seem intimidating, but I like them because they keep my tummy in place. I don't tuck shirts in with them; I just appreciate the extra control in the mid-section.

30% off at Kiyonna is nothing sneeze about - the quality is good, they styles are classically Bombshell, and that means a discount can be hard to come by.

I own an older version of the Caycee top and can attest to the fact that it is so easy to pull on over jeans, shorts or a pencil skirt...and walk out of the house feeling confident to the n-th degree.

I adore (x1000) the Catalina Swimsuit Coverup. How glamorous!!

Kiyonna's Bellini Cardigans are their most popular items, and their also often imitated by other designers. And for good reason- they're flowy, the perfect weight, and can make even the most casual outfit look polished. Normally $74, this one is a freaking steal at $37.

Other Notable Sales:
50% off at Jessica London
Buy 2, Get 2 Free Bras at Lane Bryant
15-25% off at Macy's


  1. I just did a little holiday shopping... I have never ordered from SWAK before but that black dress you posted was too cute to pass up! And even cuter with the discount... :) So, I will give that a try!

    I also ordered a few more clearance tops from CityChic. Can't wait to try everything out! And now I must go and purge my closet to make room ;)


  2. Love the short, would look great with black tights

  3. Yay, Erin! I'm son happy you're trying out Swak and City Chic. I don't think you'll be disappointed. :)

  5. I cannot thank you enough for intriducing me to all these new lines! It feels great to finally have more options.

  6. Yay, Delia! I'm so happy that you're exploring these lines. :)

  7. I'm loving this post and your blog! I'm always looking for places that carry STYLISH plus size clothes - I'm loving these looks. That red blouse is calling my name! I'm your new follower!

  8. Thanks, Shayla- I'm so glad you're here!

  9. So beautiful collections of beautiful and fashionable plus size clothing. Too bad I was not able to buy. I've just stumbled upon this blog now.
