At Torrid, we break all the rules by taking measurements on actual women, not mannequins, to create plus size fashion that's fit to perfection. Each of our collections showcases flawless looks, comfortable fabrics, and versatile trendy plus size clothing for sizes 10 – 30 (check out our size guide)… With the days getting longer, we know you’ve got places to go, and going places equals new outfits! Peep this: our sweet plus size dresses made for Sunday outings, weddings, family photos and brunch (hopefully with mimosas). And with the weather catching up with your day dreams, picture yourself rocking cute and comfy plus size jeans in a park for a picnic date or playdate. Of course with sun, comes swim season. And you’re finally going to enjoy buying a swimsuit with our fun and easy mix and match bikinis. Our entire collection of plus size swimsuits is sexy and comfortable — you’ve never felt so confident with wet hair, trust us. So yeah, your social calendar may get full, but in any (and every) event, you’re going to look and feel incredible. Don’t forget about our plus size intimates - we spent years perfecting Torrid Curve®, our line of bras in band sizes 36 to 50 (cups B through H), and gorgeous, lacy plus size lingerie that will make your heart race. From bralettes to babydolls, these sexy little pieces accentuate all the right curves so you feel totally irresistible… At Torrid, we believe a real fit in plus size fashion is life changing. It’s what you want in plus size clothing, and it’s what we do best.

You know how sometimes you just know things, but don’t realize that you do until someone mentions it out loud. That’s just the case with fashion too, and that’s why we always need tips from experts, fashionistas, and designers to validate what we know. But, often while reading about stuff, we realize how we miss tiny details and how other people have a different perspective to offer! Like they say, the devil is in the details. If you were wishing that it’d be nice to have a list that states it all out for you, we’ve got you covered. So, today, let’s take a look at 50 Fashion Tips that will come in handy for every girl – whether you are a college chica or a lady boss. Ready? Let’s do this.


"Every woman really only needs 20 core items in her closet," advises Nazarudin. "A black pair of pants, a blue blazer, a cashmere V-neck sweater in a jewel tone, and so on." Outside of these 20, you can experiment with more inexpensive items — if you don't like them, it's not nearly as bad as if you dropped $300 on a trendy piece you only wore once. If you need tips on how to maximize your basics, check out Good Housekeeping Style Director Lori Bergamotto's weeklong experiment in wearing the same thing every day.

I was early for a nearby appointment so decided to stop in Consignment Originals. It had been years since going in, and I was surprised to find they have expanded the store to the space next door, and now sell furniture and lots of other home décor items. Since they expanded, it’s not as cramped and crowded as their “competitor” consignment shop in town. As soon as I walked in, I noticed a bamboo bar cart in the window, marked $32 (perfect condition). There was also a sign that had all furniture & home items an extra 20% off! The item was not going to fit in my car, so they put it on hold for me (simple process). I absolutely love the cart – it’s perfect, and I’m definitely glad I snatched it while I could. A week later I was browsing a new home store in Farmington, and saw the SAME exact one for $275!!?!?!?! I definitely lucked out. Check Consignment Originals for some great finds!”


A sale should never be a cue to buy something. I mean, not never, but it should not always be (which is the case for most of us). If you have been waiting for a particular product to go on sale, sure, pick it up, but if it’s a random dress you want just because it is on discount, ask yourself if you’d buy it if it wasn’t on sale. You have your answer.
