A couple of weeks ago a group of us local bloggers were given a preview of the newest AJWright to open in the Chicagoland area.
Although I practically live in its sister store TJMaxx, I am probably one of the only people who had never been to an AJ Wright store before.
I was very impressed with the store. Besides being bright and welcoming, there was something for everyone and every room in a home.
Racks and racks of clothes in bright spring perfect colors
Sexy sleep things in all sizes and styles and ridiculous prices
Cute colorful bras in sizes for girls who Rock Curvatude!!!!
Shelves and shelves of home decor
The cutest selections for the the wee ones in your life
Shoes to please any shoe diva
They even sell scrubs!
And so much more.
While there, our shopping skills were put to the test.
We were each given $100 to see how we would maximize it.
I decided that instead of going for outfits I wanted to stay on point with my shopping agenda for this season and find pieces that were easy and relaxed and that I could wear with things that I already own.
My only concern prior to my arrival was "plus size girl shopping anxiety" --
"Would they have enough selection in my size or if would I end up shopping for accessories?"
Thankfully AJ Wright had plenty of plus size options.
Actually way more than I could have hoped for, making it extra hard to decide on what to buy AND stay within my budgeted amount.
When it was all said and done, I ended up with quite a few pieces.
Mostly dresses, as I live in them mainly during the warmer months.
Here I am with Afrobella modeling a cute blue dress that we both happened to have grabbed off the racks.
It's so comfortable. And don't we look cute!
Here are a couple of the other items that I got.
I ended up with 6 dresses and a pair of jeans all for a grand total of $107.
In the coming weeks I will start posting some Rockin Curvatude posts and I will show exactly how I have incorporated these pieces into my wardrobe.
And to let you share in the fun, the fine folks at AJWright have given me a $50 gift card to give away.
