If you’re “plus” you know exactly what it’s like to shop in department stores. Back in 2013 I practically had front row seats in the furniture department of Bloomingdales as I waited for the Full Figured Fashion Week runway presentation to start. Thankfully more brick and mortar stores are popping up across the country and you don’t have to rely on department stores as your only option. I’ll never forget walking into Primaala a Toronto based plus size boutique for the first time, it was like walking into my dream closet. Luxurious fabrics, leather and brands that I had only seen online all in one place. Needless to say Primaala has become my addiction ,everything I’m wearing in this pic (minus the boots and glasses  is from Primaala). Today I’m giving you matrix realness again….lol

Your style should not be defined by your size!
