So I had the pleasure this past weekend to go to Re-Dress, the newly opened, first ever size 14+ vintage clothing store in the country. It was amazing and I spent money I don’t have, but I felt like I was making up for a lifetime of clothes that never fit right. Conventional wisdom might suggest that I should focus my resources on losing weight, but I am way more into looking fabulous and I love vintage clothing. Which is the concept behind Re-Dress-women that don’t fit the oppressive beauty standards pushed by mainstream media have good style-if not better style than mainstream ‘chic.’
So if you are in NY or you are visiting, please check out Re-Dress. The staff is knowledgeable about fashion, they are friendly and queer friendly. Everyone I spoke with had amazing political analysis along with great fashion sense. You can’t really beat that, now can you.
I felt beautiful when I came out. I can’t remember that last time I felt that way after going clothes shopping. Seriously.
Plus-size vintage for the win!
