If you haven’t seen the button on my sidebar or some of my recent tweets, this August I’ll be heading to a very awesome blogging conference in NYC with my roomie, Jayme.
And with sponsorship figured out (which I will tell you about soon, because they’re awesome!), there’s only one major question left:
What the heck am I going to wear?
Even though I’ve already been joking around on Twitter about showing up in sweats and flip flops, there’s a part of me that can’t imagine being in The Big Apple without looking stylish . . . or at least more fashionable than my day-to-day look is. (Which . . . if I’m being completely honest? That look is mostly sweats and flip flops. I’m a creature of habit, people. Comfortable, lazy, habit. )
Since Ben won’t be coming with me like he did for #BBCPhilly, I’ve got to pack stuff that is not only cute, but comfortable and easy for me to put on and off. This probably means I’ll be wearing a lot of dresses and capris.
My go-to store for dresses is usually Old Navy, and if you’ve ever cringed at my bill before, you’d have no doubt in your mind that I’m speaking the truth. But, I’ve already bought a dress from them online this season and I would really like to branch out and try something outside of my usual comfort zone. I’m looking for a place that is affordable (like, below $50 for a dress. I still need to budget in money to eat that week), has secure online payment because I don’t want to have to leave the house and actually try stuff on, and, if they’ve got a store card, offers internet payment services would be a definite plus.
And speaking of plus, they should offer a lot of cute options in fat girl sizes. That’s kind of important.
So readers: Where should I go shopping? Also – if you’re going to the conference, let me know!
