Epic Sale Haul + AGO’s First Thursdays

A few weeks ago I wrote about the Epic Sale that Doll Factory by Damzels was having this week.  Yesterday this sale finally hit the 50% off mark on ALL items store-wide!  I hit the Roncy location to find that all the clothes were cleverly sorted by size (huge win) and I was surprised to see that the plus size selection was sprawled across multiple racks, rather than a single sad corner hidden in the back of a store

The store’s staff were fab, as always. At one point I had several shopgirls dotting on me running my collection of ‘try-ons’ into the fitting room.    I’m usually a solid size 18.  Depending on the style and cut of the dress, how much stretch/room there is in the hips and boobs are the ultimately what determine’s the size I’ll fit into.  The trick with shopping in a boutique shop like this one is that you MUST try on EVERYTHING, as the size you typically are won’t necessarily be the size you’ll fit into flatteringly. 

After trying on nearly half of their plus size racks, turns out I’m able to fit into their size 12s, 14s and XLs too. 

My mini-haul at 50% off included the following:

I’ll be sure to provide ya’ll details on each dress once I’ve made them into outfits in upcoming blog posts friends…stay tuned. 🙂

That evening I had tickets for the Art Gallery of Ontario, AGO’s First Thursday’s event and decided to wear something from my above haul!

There were upwards of 500 tickets sold for this event!  And everyone was dressed very well and oh-so trendy.  My gf and I noticed how many fashion toques were among the crowd —  you get to hide your greasy-static-ridden-hair, whilst keeping toasty warm — think we both need to jump on this bandwagon soonest!

As we people-watched and got drinks at the bar, I immediately spotted MY black n’ white high-waisted flared skirt  glide past me several times that night.   Sigh…it’s a gorgeous skirt.  I ain’t mad at her for buying and wearing it.  But this is the problem with finding fashionable-plus-petite-pieces in shops like Forever21 – since they’re super cheap it makes it super easy for EVERYONE to buy it too!

That’s why when boutique shops like Doll Factory by Damzels have sales, it’s an excellent time to scoop up fab deals on outfits that ONLY YOU will have. 🙂

Tons of fun at the AGO last night.  Check out our foodie-sculptures, the live band complete with electric xylophone and duelling DJs.  Thursdays’ are clearly the New Friday!
