|Blazer: Madison (Belk's) (similar) / Shirt: Merona (Target) / Skirt: Worthington (JCPenney) / Shoes: Michael Antonio|
I found this blazer on clearance at Belk's during one of their many red dot sales. It was actually hidden within the "old lady" section of the store but I found it anyway. This was the only one I saw and I fell in love with it, despite it totally not being my size (it is a petite medium!). Luckily, it fit and was only 15 bucks!
I cannot stress how important it is to try everything on when shopping, because you will be surprised at what actually fits. Plus size divas, be sure to check out straight sizes because there are often items that are full of stretch or made in a loose, flowy style that can fit your curves despite the number on the tag. Also, branch out from your favorite spots in the store--you may find a hidden gem in an area that you wouldn't expect!
