Yes Please!: Charlotte Russe

Yep, and I will explain. I am a plus size-y girl with big feet and I never have problems finding clothes. One of these reasons is my never ending search for what will fit me. I could never say I have mastered this skill but I have gotten better. Another skill attained over the years is checking back at various e-stores. They always adjust to the times. This has a range of benefits including larger shoe sizes, a cleaner webpage, and collaborations! I am most excited about the former as I was looking at Lara's blog; http://www.mymilkglassheart.com. Thanks for this new/old resource. I used to shop Charlotte Russe back in the day and now I am reconsidering....a little. (all photos: charlotterusse.com)

The Shoes
While CR has upped their design game by actually hiring designers to create their looks some of the materials still look of poor quality. Overall it is a much bigger improvement than the Gap's attempt at a makeover.




The Rings
The rings range in sizes too. Now I know it sounds like I am fawning over CR and you would be right. When has a fast fashion/mall store made so many rapid improvements for the better?

i just tried on some gorgeous drape-y trousers at charlotte russe! if i wasn't pregnant i probably would have purchased them in the blink of an eye. they are definitely on quality par with h&m and above F21. i ended up buying a black jersey open blazer that is much more flattering of my mama to be figure- but yes! i do get pleasantly surprised in there now & again. xoxo!

I'm completely shocked this stuff comes from Charlotte Russe. I know they did a huge remodel for the grown up CR girl but wow, definitely surprised with the chosen pieces! Thanks for posting love!

I didn't even know CR was still around! Glad to hear they are and that they upped their game.

Hey! Thanks for the shout out! I love their jewelry and have that second from the bottom ring.

One of my friends just bought two pairs of shoes there and she says they've definitely improved. I need to check out the physical store and figure out their clothes sizing in real life before I start ordering more fitted things online.

I have ordered a few tank tops and tees and those sizes seemed really generous. Definitely vanity sizing but that's great since they'll fit a wider range of ladies!
