My Vintage Victory

My best friend took me to Fat Fancy for my birthday present.  I am on the larger end of the sizing spectrum so I don't always have the best of luck finding clothing most anywhere in stores.  But apparently the vintage gods were shinning on me that day.  Carlee one of the shop owners took me to a rack with some new dresses they just got in and I nearly died over this dress.  I kept saying to myself on the way to the dressing room this isn't going to fit.  They never fit.  Not to mention the fabric is non stretch which is just unheard of for me.  But magic happened that day in Fat Fancy.  Not just the magic that happens there everyday, but super size magic.   The dress fit!  And I look rather fabulous in it.  So to any of you ladies who feel like vintage shopping it out for you because the search is hard, never give up hope.  There are always amazing items to be found and rebirthed into the fat fashion scene.

  1. Wow, what an amazing dress! I haven't been so lucky in terms of thrifting (I haven't even tried vintage, as it's usually a bit too expensive for me), and all I've really found are some sweaters and tops that I overwear. But what a lucky find!
