Aryn's Closet

Inspired by the website StyleLikeU, I finally decided to start showcasing the closets and personal style of fashionable plus size women in my area. I was lucky enough to interview Aryn yesterday, and I absolutely adore her closet. She has a ton of cheap and chic pieces, and she's such a perfect example of how to look great on a college kid's budget. I hope you guys enjoy, and let me know if you want to see more!

  3. Love her style choices. I really liked her headband, the shoes, and the bracelets. She has some great jeans, also. I'm going to take her advice and check out Target and places like that. I tend to shop at the same places all the time- Old Navy and the Gap- so my wardrobe is soooo very limited. Thanks for another great post.

  24. I absolutely LOVE her style and it gave me even more of a boost knowing that she's tall too and wears heels bc I'm 5'11 and plus sized. She def gave me more confidence to be the fashionista...LOVE!

  25. Great idea! Not just for a peek into someone's personal style, but I also like seeing how people organize their closets. It might sound weird, but it gives me some closet organizing ideas. I live in a tiny apartment with hardly any closet space and WAY too many clothes, shoes and accessories, so I'm always happy to see how someone else organizes their stuff.

  26. Great video! I'm 6'1 and yff and could really relate to a lot of her styling of her clothes! Love seeing tall ladies workin it!

  45. LOOOOOOVE this idea! Aryn is GORGEOUS! And I'm thrilled that you're featuring tall girls!! I'm 5'9" so it's also hard for me to find tall jeans :( and I'm also glad that she isn't afraid of heels. Just because we're tall, we shouldn't be afraid to stand out! BE PROUD!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Continue to do the post!! I think it will really help a lot of the big girls who have trouble finding clothes!!
    I think you should come to Toronto and hit us up!!
