STYLE: Chic Soul Plus Size Try On HAUL!!!

STYLE: Chic Soul Plus Size Try On HAUL!!!

Those Sponsored ads on Facebook and Instagram really do count for something.

I found this online boutique’s sister store, Mint Julep Boutique, via a Facebook Sponsored ad. A beautiful online gem of a shop based in Alabama, they have a range of sizes that actually could fit me (XXL was the biggest at the time I believe). It’s known especially for their Slouchies that go on sale on Sundays (Slouchie Sundays!).

My girl Amanda Bella actually did a blog post all about Mint Julep Boutique that you can check out here (or click the pic above!)

The folks at Mint Julep realized they had a customer base they wanted to reach even more… And decided to launch Chic Soul to cater to the plus size babes (like me!)

Not only does Chic Soul have those famous Slouchies, but all sorts of GORGEOUS clothes up to a size 3X (a few 4X’s are mixed in too!).

I’ve ordered one of those Slouchies from them before and LOVE the way it fits.

This time around, I was on a mission to find the perfect black cold shoulder top for me this summer.

And gosh darn it, I found it!

My order only took a few days to arrive in the mail… I received the nicest note from the team over there too!

Presenting, my first try-on haul!

P.S. I’m wearing 3X for everything you see here! 🙂

The first top I tried on was the Happy Thoughts Blouse (click on the pic below to shop it!):

On the model, it looks SO good; I thought this would be the perfect cold shoulder top for me… Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case with this one:

While I am LOVING the fact that I look like Sandy from Grease (the final scene 😉 ) , I am not loving how it’s too small for my huge boobs and way too short for my tall self. Unfortunately, this one will be sent back…


That is NOT the case for the other three tops!!!

Next, I tried on the Polished Perfection Blouse, click the pic to shop the link!

First off, how ADORABLE is this cold shoulder top?! The feminine ruffle, just like it describes, is extremely flattering on the model here, and truly, it’s extremely flattering on me too.

I am obsessed with the detailing of the pattern on top (unfortunately, my iPhone didn’t capture this as I would like, but c’est la vie 🙂 )! I am loving this one and can’t wait to wear it to work and out! It’s perfect for my tall 5’9″ self too, and flatters my rounded stomach shape!

The next top I tried was the Wish You The Best Top (and how fun are these names, BTW?!), shop the shirt by clicking the pic!

OK, first off, florals are SO in, whether it be a maxi dress, or a hi-lo/sharkbite top like this. What really sold me on this top is the high neckline, which a lot of tops I see lately DON’T have. This is definitely my favorite of the four tops I bought, and with good reason…

It looks SO good on me, it’s an absolutely INCREDIBLE, MUST HAVE top for my fellow plus size babes out there! I loved it so much I ended up wearing it the next day after it came in the mail:

I freaking LOVE this one, 10/10.

The final top I tried is the Wild Child Kimono, shop it by clicking the pic!

((Well, unfortunately, it’s sold out right now, BUT, enter your email address in the form to sign up for restock notifications!))

If there are two things I love in fashion, they are:

  1. hot pink
  2. cheetah/leopard print

This brings out the ultra fierce plus size babe in me, RAWR! 🙂

I LOVE the flowiness of this kimono and I can’t wait to pair it up with different camis, pants, and tops.

What I love about Chic Soul is for a boutique it’s quite inexpensive, especially when plus sizes, in general, tend to run on the higher end of the pricing scale in a lot of stores.

I also love that it caters to trends and really highlights things that aren’t frumpy and that the trendy plus size babes out there would love to dress up or down with.

And GIVEAWAYS! There are TONS of giveaways on its social media pages, be sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram for the latest deals/giveaways! Beautiful stuff.

I highly recommend you check these fabulous people out!
