3FatChicks on a diet! – Support for diet and weight loss


When it comes to fashion, I’ll be the first to admit that I know less than nothing. I lived most of my teenage years in an oversized hoodie and blue jeans. My hair was tied in a ponytail and my face was makeup free. It was easy, it was simple, and it worked perfectly with my tomboyish attitude.

Over the years, a lot of things have changed. My tomboyish attitudes are much less important and I take great pride in making sure I look polite and professional when I walk into the office every morning.

You know what hasn’t changed, though? My desire for easy and simple. I want to look good and I don’t want it to take a lot of work. Is it too much to ask? The great folks at Avenue.com were kind enough to send me a sample of some of their clothes. And let me tell you, with their “A Striped Situation” set, polished and chic has never been easier.

The outfit is made up of a few simple pieces – their Butter Denim Skinny jeans (in black), Lace Trim Camisole (black) and a three-quarter striped blazer. It makes a simple yet bold combination that is both comfortable and unforgettable.

The Butter Denim skinny jeans fit beautifully. It’s soft, stretchy, but not too sheer. My only issues with this item were the fact that it didn’t have front pockets, and they came loose a bit after I wore them for a while. If you’re like me (my waist is significantly slimmer than my hips), that means you might spend a little time pulling these jeans up after a few hours of wearing them. They also tend to run a bit on the long side. I’m 5’7” and they were a good length for me, but if I had been shorter they probably would have been too long.

I loved the length of this piece…it definitely helped when the jeans fell down a bit! At the same time, the neck fit was perfect. Often with camisoles I find myself constantly doing the “cleavage check” to make sure everything is where it’s supposed to be…but not with this one.

Finally, the striped blazer. What a statement this jacket makes! It’s lightweight, so it’s not too much to wear in the summer months, but enough to help you tolerate that office air conditioning. The contrasting white stripes with the all-black basics underneath are sure to turn heads.

Accessorizing this outfit is just as easy as the rest of the outfit. Avenue’s black wedges are comfortable and have just enough heel to be fierce, without being overwhelming.

Accentuate the entire outfit with a few standout pieces (like Avenue’s Double Row Rhinestone Stretch Bracelet) and large textured hoops) and you’ve got a polished look for both the office and dinner and a drink with the girls.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to try out some of your awesome stuff, Avenue! And a special thank you to my little sister, who was my model today… we have the same size, but different morphologies, and the Avenue.com outfit also suited her perfectly! Don’t you agree?
