I Want You to Want Me

I want you to want me…

One of my favorite “dancing alone in my room” songs.  You are hearing the rest of it in your head right now aren’t you…Don’t lie.

My point is I want you to want me.  Really, and truly, I do.  I have a million thoughts on the plus size industry, female empowerment, and learning to love life just as it is.  However my thoughts are what I think about.  I want to know what is on your mind and what I can help you with.

I recently asked a FaceBook group that I am part of “When shopping for clothing what do you feel is missing out there?  Where/What do you struggle with the most?”

Sadly the answers were not surprising.  My absolute favorite answer was “Everything.”  Other answers included:

“Just because I’m large around the waist doesn’t mean I’m tall”

“I think plus size in tall sizes is missing”

“Clothes that are good quality that don’t cost a fortune and actually have some style”

“I just want to dress/look normal…I don’t want to look like a diva or make bold statements with my clothes”

“Everything is either baggy and ugly or fitted but not to flatter”

“The shopping experience is so awful”

“Wide calf stuff”

“Pants that don’t sag, and shirts that are not so low cut”


“In my dream world Banana Republic, Anthropologie, North Face, J. Crew and Hunter boots would all accommodate plus sizes”  (Look what I did find though- https://designingfrommycloset.wordpress.com/2015/04/22/anthropologie-style-plus-size-clothing-spring-2015/ )

It does exist-Maybe

“Plain tunics to wear with leggings”

Basically the person who said “Everything” nailed it.

So for you there I pose the same question but more in depth-

  1. When shopping what is missing for you?
  2. What price point are you willing to spend up to?
  3. What do you want to hear about to make styling easier on you in your day to day?

I really do want to hear your thoughts as I start writing and posting more so that I can help find solutions for you that fit your lifestyle.



About stellalucille

Growing up, I did not like to shop-in fact, it almost always ended in tears. As a teenager I was busy baking, swimming, and hanging out with my boyfriend, not reading Seventeen or Elle for fashion advise. There was no indication I’d find my calling in fashion. But that all changed when I went to Los Angeles for collage and wanted to look the part. At first I loved to shop, but I easily gained the freshman 15, then more. Shopping became more difficult, but I stilled wanted to dress well. I fell in love with finding fashion forward clothing for the curvy woman and from there I had a plus size clothing. I’ve been all sizes- from straight sizes to junior plus, plus, maternity plus and back again. I love fashion and believe everyone needs to dress in his or her own style, while meshing that with what is fashion forward, fits, and works within your budget. Even though I’m the woman that wanted to wear jeans to my own wedding, I’ve always been the person that friends and family turn to for fashion advise, developing style, creating a shopping plan, educating them on fit, and helping them see beyond their own body perceptions. Put it this way I didn’t wear jeans to my wedding but when I found that elusive, perfect dress the first thing I said was it “feels” like I’m in my jeans. Finding the right fit is not always easy. Finding the right clothes is not always easy, and finding the right style is not always easy. But I can help you with all of that. Whatever shape or size, gender, lifestyle or budget there are great, fashionable, clothes for you. Feeling good in what you wear can make you feel great in who you are.
