Plus Size Business Suits Online Shopping Review: My Habit
Skip it for fashions – Hit it for shoes and accessories
I just got an email from Amazon inviting me to take advantage of “free, instant access to the 3-day, limited-quantity sale events at MYHABIT.COM – a new membership-only fashion destination.”
Oh Amazon – I know you want me when you whisper these sweet nothings into my email inbox:
- Free access
Say no more – HELL YEAH I’m going to click!!!
To say it was a quick descent into plus size hell would be an understatement.
Now – that’s not to say there’s nothing of value for the plus size woman inside the gates of MyHabit. Fabulous designer shoes, scarfs, handbags and jewelry all await the eager plus size shopper – but when it comes to the clothes you’ll wear on your body – well MyHabit has it’s own wing in plus size fashion hell.
Now – normally – I can deal with such fashion realities. Normally – I can raise my middle finger, hold it high and tell the best of them to take a long walk on a short pier – in trucker-esque language. Not this time….
See – My Habit is the future of online shopping. Instead of using static images to showcase the clothes – the site uses video with models moving to display the garments from various angles.
I’ll be honest. It hurts – it really hurts.
Perhaps it hurts so bad because I was recently shopping online for plus size clothes to wear to the office. One of the sites I visited completely pissed me off because the images they were using were just so BAD I can’t imagine that ANYONE would want to wear them.
Just because I’m “curvy” doesn’t mean I have given up and am going to wear a mumu to work!!!
The clothes in the images at this online plus size retailers didn’t fit the model well. Maybe “regular” models are regularly dressed in ill fitting clothes – I don’t know – I don’t pay attention to those images anymore. What I can tell you is i won’t buy something online that doesn’t even look good on the perfectly proportioned “plus” size model… for while I am plus size – I am FAR from perfectly propeortioned!!!
For example, on this offensive online plus size clothing store, they had placed the model into a “business suit.” Her mouth was smiling – but here eyes revealed her pain. She knew the ill fitting jacket she wore was paired with an even more ill fitting pair of pants. She knew the jacket was too small and obviously too short to be flattering on anyone with hips – let alone hips AND full breasts. However, it didn’t take long to see the TRUE source of the model’s pain. One glance and your attention would be RIVETED to the poor thing’s crotch. Not only were the pants too tight and pulling across the hips and thighs – the rise was too short – creating an unflattering image which is commonly associated with a Middle Eastern Beast of Burden (a.k.a. a camel).
You won’t find such disturbing images at MyHabit.com What you will find are impossibly skinny bitches young girls who are build like they just recently graduated from the toddler’s clothing section- flitting across my screen – teasing me with fabulous fashion finds at ridiculously low prices.
I’ll just have to console myself with a pair (or two) of designer shoes with a $225 retail price tag for less than $80. Seriously – the shoes are as AMAZING as the prices.
The selection of shoes I saw today also stopped at a size 10 – so if your creator made you with plus size feet to support your curves – you should save yourself the heartache and skip the MyHabit descent into fashion hell entirely.
Maybe not – there is still really good stuff to score – from handbags to scarves to candles to jewelry.
Oh MyHabit – how is it possible that I loathe you and love you at the same time. Maybe I should direct my hatred at the designers who think a 12 is plus size and lovingly embrace you for allowing me to pick up the fabulous shoes and accessories that will make my business wardrobe stand out!
In the end – MyHabit is a great place to for women of any size to pick up high end designer shoes and accessories at bargain basement prices. If you want to pick up something for your man or your kids – there’s stuff for them too.
But honestly – from me to you – when was the last time you picked up something decadent for YOU!!!
Decadent doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg – when you score a bargan at MyHabit.
Pick up the phone all your best friend – I’ll be she agrees with me. You owe it to yourself to pick up either a FABULOUS pair of shoes or a FABULOUS piece of jewelery. I could tell you what’s playing right now – but it’s going to be different by the time you get there so find out for yourself.
Big discounts on high end designer fashions – just not for your body – just your feet, arms ears and possibly arms (handbags).
