One of my recent fashion discoveries was that Ardene’s extra large sizes ACTUALLY fit me, at a plump size 16 – what a pleasant surprise! Most of us curvier girls have shopped at Ardene’s for years – but only for costume jewelry and accessories. So I’m sharing the good news, that if you wear a size 12 to 16, you can get some of their cute, trendy, seasonal fashions as well. And if you wear a regular width shoe, you can enjoy some of their sandals too.
I purchased two dresses… because ladies… right now, their dresses are “Buy One, Get One for $1”! So ya, I couldn’t pass that up, and neither should you if you wear this size range. Stay tuned, the second dress will be featured in a separate blog post.
Here we go.
The first totally dreamy tube maxi dress is ultra feminine with a beachy blend of turquoise and coral on a soft ivory palette and unimposing elastic waist to define the silhouette.
And because I was feeling like a princess, I styled it with a wonderfully dramatic body chain and my coral wedges from Maurices (featured in a previous post).
The dress has a short lining, which hits me about mid-thigh.
I felt really beautiful and feminine in this dress and I’m so glad I got it! At $35 (and a second dress for only $1), I am pleased with the quality and fit. I hope you enjoyed this look and can benefit from Ardene’s clothing.
