Shop with your Imagination

Sweater, Shorts, and Crocodile Ring- Forever21, Top worn as dress- Loeman's, Tights- American Apparel, Boots- Chinese Laundry, Belt-Vintage

I started wearing women's 2XL shirts as dresses several years ago after a shopping trip with one of my best friends.  We strode into the same discount store, full of hope and eager to fly through racks of clothes searching for hidden gems. I, resorting to the excuse that these types of stores can be hit or miss, came out empty handed.  My friend, on the other hand, came out with a bag full of inexpensive blouses that were wayyyy to big for her.  I remember thinking it was a waste of money and she would just look goofy, but come beach time, they made beautiful coverups and people went crazy asking her where she got them. 

I learned never to dismiss the shirts that seem too big on the sale rack.  They can easily be belted, altered, worn over shorts, or worn under a long cardi like this one.  Always shop with an open mind, and make sure this doesn't apply quite the same way to your wallet!
