We decided to go to our local Old Navy to check out the new and improved in-store shopping experience for ourselves, and we are taking you with us!
Shopping from the same few places can start to lose its appeal real fast, so we think it’s important to switch things up. In the plus size fashion space, the indie designer is the lifeblood of plus size fashion. They push the limits, redefine style, and set the tone for the mainstream plus size retailers.
Every once in a while, we catch a new wave of plus size designers whose work is to note…
Whether you’re looking for clothing items that are totally unique or just want to try something new, we’ve found the coolest up and coming fashion designers to watch out for in 2019 and beyond!
