Recently I purchased my first home and last weekend some of my favorite people threw me a housewarming that was attended by more of my favorite people. It was small and quaint, close friends and family, but it was one fabulous affair!!! And oh boy do I love fab affairs. My cousin cooked all of the food and she's an excellent cook. The menu consisted of all of my favorites ... chicken, fresh fruit, potato salad, pasta salad and more. My bff, who's also one of the best decorators that I know, adorned my new humble abode with fresh cut purple tulips (one of my favorite flowers), pink roses and other bright assorted bouquets. And two of my closest friends made THE cutest favors ... key shaped chocolates and rice crispy treats the looked like paint brushes. As for what I wore. Well, I purchased an outfit from ASOS, the week of, but when it arrived it was too big. I don't shop there often so I triple checked the size chart but still to no avail. So then two days before the housewarming I went on a wild goose chase to every plus size store in my area: Fashion To Figure, Torrid, Lane Bryant, and Ashley Stewart. I even checked out Forever21+. Well, believe it or not Ross came through for the win!!! There was only one left, it was in my size and way within my budget. Im still in shock that I found exactly what I wanted and at Ross.
Here she is!
