One of my favorite blogs to visit is Behind the Seams, from Francesca's Collections. I get their email updates for new blog posts and I absolutely love them. They include everything from styling ideas and inspiration, new apparel, behind the scenes looks at their photoshoots...and their online boutique has some of "the most fabulous finds"!
I used to walk by their local store and swoon at the rockin' window displays, thinking it was too pricey and not fit for a curvy girl like me. But one day I worked up the courage to walk in and I've been hooked ever since. Their prices are super reasonable, and while some of their items do run smaller in size, I can always find what I need. The mannequins are always well-dressed, the staff are friendly and oh-so helpful, and I've even had the pleasure of conversing with someone on their blog for style advice on a dress that I purchased and couldnt figure out what to wear with it. They posted the pic of my dress on their Facebook page and got tons of ideas from other Francesca's fans like myself!
If you haven't already, take a look. Walk in the store. Go to their website. Visit the blog. You'll be glad you did...if you're not, let me know so I can nominate you for TLC's What Not To Wear!
