Last week I went to a local shopping mall to return a few items and as I walked through a major department store I found myself feeling really frustrated. I was frustrated by the selection of items available, the styles, and the sizes. Honestly, I felt like everything was for much younger women. Not only much younger but the selection of sizes were very limited as well.
I was truly frustrated so I decided to post a quick video to my stories on Instagram. I wanted to share how I felt left out & forgotten. It turned out I was not alone. Many of you reached out and messaged me that you feel forgotten too! I received so many private messages and texts it was truly amazing.
In fact, 100% of my followers agreed and said they felt as though everything in stores was for younger women. Similarly, 80% of my followers felt forgotten as well.
I walked out of the department store and decided to try LOFT and J.Crew and I promptly found a few items at each store that were classic pieces that would work with my wardrobe. The best part was they fit perfectly.
When I purchase an item I always ask myself three important questions:
Do I love it?
Will I be able to pair it with two other items in my closet?
Can I wear it for more than one season?
On that day I was quickly able to answer yes, yes, and yes. I also decided that I would try and find clothing brands that were for women of all sizes, that are great for every day or for dressing up.
