A Chronic Addiction for Fashion + Travel

This post contains sponsored links from Groupon Coupon. All opinions are mine.

Fashion is just another accessory for someone with great style. Kelly Osbourne once said: When shopping in a curvy girl’s world. “You should dress how you feel and love what you wear because at the end of the day you have got to wear and feel great in it.” In order to do so you are always looking for that it factor: high quality material, you feel and look sexy, is it affordable, & much more.

Most plus-size lines tends to be expensive just for two (2) pieces of clothing. However, no need to stress because your girl the Style Maven “The Social Nubian” have some helpful tips for you, in another edition of A Chronic Addiction for Fashion.

I love saving money and I am sure you do! I have always been a fan of Groupon Coupons, but for traveling.

Groupon have opened my eyes and now you can call me an Extreme Groupon Coupon user to fashionable items.  Some people may not like shopping online, but “Forever 21” does accept returns from in-store & online purchase with 30-45 days of purchase with receipts.

    First off I love your logo! And the dress is gorgeous not a huge fan of mustard colored anything but that dress I could wear:)

    • Social Nubian
      May 25, 2016

      The mustard dress gives a pop of sunkiss color and it looks great on all shapes and sizes. The color is great for the summer.

    I absolutely love Groupon! Didn’t realize they had coupons OR that my online purchases can be returned in-store! Great post. Thanks for this!!

    I have never used Groupon before, but have often thought about it. I even get the emails, LOL. I am nervous about buying clothes on line though, but if a place has a great return/exchange policy then it is worth looking into.

    I love Groupon but didn’t realize they feature so much fashion! I will have to check it out!

    I don’t love H&M as much as I used to. I think the quality is better over in Europe! I love Target though 🙂

  • Rada (journous)

    I love that there are so many options for Groupon from all these brands. I definitely don’t like to shop online for clothing, but that’s a great tip that returns can be made in store even for online purchases.

  • Lalia Frolick

    I’ve never heard that Kelly Osbourne quote before, but it’s definitely a good one! I’ve definitely learned over the years that I should only buy clothes I LOVE, because I don’t wear the ones that I think are “okay,” even if they were on sale!

    • Social Nubian
      June 29, 2016

      A okay top or blouse can be the WOW factor to an amazing look for that day, but it all depends on how you dress it up with a good statement necklaces

    Great tips and ideas. I wear plus sizes and live in a resort area so I always try to look nice when I step out. It’s hard to find nice clothes at fair prices and I will definitely look to Groupon on for a little help.

    Although not for me, this was great advice for the curvy girls out there. And that dress and swimwear you picked out would look amazing on my friend <3

    • Social Nubian
      June 29, 2016

      Although, I provided plus size line such as Forever 21+. Please note that the discount code can be used for a non Forever 21+ customer (in-store & online), Dooshima.

    I have found that I am a big fan of window shopping at Nordstrom these days. But in the end I always go back to those brands that seem to have women with boobs and ass in mind. HA! I am a size 6-8 but most brands seem to think that you can’t go above a B cup if that is your waist size. UGH!! Sadly I have yet to see a groupon for the brands I like. But I will keep looking!

    I also travel with my little 3.5 pound dog (thats’ our thing) … again the discounts are rarely applicable. It kinda sucks!

  • Joie
    June 22, 2016

    Love that yellow dress! I haven’t used Groupon before but will look into it. Saving money is a must in our family.

  • Louisa

    I used Groupon a lot more when I lived in the lower 48. I wished they had more offers in the Fairbanks area. I love a good deal and also check out Groupon to see what offers are available when I’m on a trip.

  • Ginger Marie

    Loving the list of plus size retailers! I love a good company that appreciates my curves. 😉

    • Social Nubian
      June 29, 2016

      Forever 21+ is one of my favorite stores to shop; especially since its a one stop shop in the area of clothes, shoes, makeup, and then you can walk over to the men’s & kids section to shop for the family. Love It!!!

  • Victoria Stacey

    This is great! That yellow dress is gorgeous!
