Dare to Bare All…Shoulders

**Not Sponsored. All opinions are mine and mine alone. Everything in this post was purchased with my own money.**

For a plus-size gal like myself, it took a long time to get comfortable enough to show certain parts of my body.  These include my shoulders and my arms.  They are not the thinnest or the cutest but I am not willing to suffocate and not wear cute things just because they are not what many would consider nice to look at. Screw that.

I know. These cold shoulder tops are every where. I can’t seem to find a cute blouse without picking it up and seeing that they are slit at the shoulder (it’s a blessing and curse–this trend).  What made me love this particular top was that it came from my first ever Stitch Fix box.

I have to give a shout-out to my bestie Andrea for bringing this box to my attention.  It just sounded like such a fun thing to try out and I must admit that I am pleasantly surprised.  I told them in this box that I had a birthday party to go to so they proceeded to send me a box with the most amazing clothing items.


Ignore my mosquito bite. They truly suck. But in this Stitch Fix they sent me a wonderful floral cold shoulder dress, some cool and perfectly fitting distressed denim, a white tank that has some great details, a gold clutch, and this cute little blouse.

The styling itself costs $20 but what you keep is up to you. I ended up keeping the whole box and getting the $20 deducted AND 20% off. I did shopping without leaving my house..and without even picking it before hand.  It was fun and exciting.  It’s like waiting for a surprise in the mail.

Top: Skies are Blue (Stitch Fix) // Shorts: Levi’s in Daisy Drive // Sandals: Coach (old) // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (old) // Choker: Forever 21

By the way, I have been absolutely loving these Levi’s shorts.  The classics are the perfect length so my thighs don’t rub together and die while I walk. The only warning I will give is to maybe size down because while this was tight on the first wear, they were falling off of me on my second.

So live life a little. Wear the things you don’t feel comfortable wearing. Experiment out of your comfort zone. Do what you please.  I think this was the main reason I wanted to try Stitch Fix–to broaden my horizons and hopefully like something that I might not have liked if I saw it on the rack. It’s a great way to experiment and a great way to find what you truly love–no matter what it may show. Like my shoulders or my dang mosquito bite.
