[style diary] searsStyle “Steal vs Splurge” Challenge

As much as I blog about luxury brands and gaze at the look books online; the truth is that I simply cannot afford them. So just in time for my trip to Cali (I have yet to purchase that ticket btw), I was asked to review the Kardashian Kollection and a few others over at Sears with a $75 e-gift card. 

I managed to find 3 sale items. Check out the pics.  

Somehow I completely forgot I was plus size until I got inside and noticed that nothing in this so called ‘misses’ section went past a size (L). In true curvy chic form, I managed to find a few items made with lycra. I originally spotted a cute little jumpsuit from the Kardashian Kollection. Let’s just say that fitting room experience left me looking like Jane Fonda. *check my twitter TL for the funny outtakes*

I spotted an Apostrophe stripped maxi skirt. Since I have been drooling over maxi-everything since this summer, I ran over. Only to find there were 2 left, one in ‘not my damn size’, and another in ‘girl you tripping if you think you can fit this’. After a quick survey of the racks, I managed to find the black maxi skirt in an XL ($42 on sale 40% off). 

My boyfriend spotted this Kardashian oversized dolman sleeve tee shirt (above – $42 on sale 40% off) stuffed in with some skimpy dresses on a rack nearby. I think someone was saving it for later — oops, mine now. I didn’t have time to alter it before we snapped these pics. But when I do finally sport this, I will be cutting the top so that it will hang off my shoulders.

Since I was determined to spend ALL $75 and everything was on sale, I went back for round 2. I spotted this Apostrophe draped front sweater (below - $42 on sale 40% off). Perfect dinner date sweater. Especially when paired with those skinny jeans we all have that are a little too snug. This sweater will hide all the middle that no one should see in public. I promise NOT to wear my stripes socks outside. It seems like a good idea then, I see I look kinda coo koo!

Thanks to this shopping experience I will be adding Sears as a place to shop. Who would have thought I could find so much for so less. I thought they just sold tires and such. #IKid!

    I am so loving black and white stripes this season. I purchased a new striped top from Ross yesterday. You look adorable. You’re the 2nd blogger getting the goods at Sears. Let me find out that they’re hot to trot now.
