Recently I learned from two great twitter icons @kimmoy and @vactress that there are ways to maximize my blog and earn a return from all the shopping and spending I am doing. I have this blog that I love and through which I have met some great people but is there more I can be doing. So, I followed the advice of these longtime bloggers and went in search of sponsors. And on my side panel you can find 3 companies that I support and use... often... and trust...
Maurices - is a company owned by DressBarn. And since you can't buy DressBarn items online, Maurices is the next best thing. They have a plus size section with very cute dresses (I really love dresses) but they have some SUPER cute skirts and camis that I can't wait to get my hands on. The closest location to my home is in York, PA. But I smell a road trip so that I can show off some items on the blog. They are now having a sale until Thursday BOGO 50% off Dressy Tops and Bottoms thru 5.06 @ maurices.com
Torrid - I'm not surprised that I was accepted. I mean this year alone I've tallied almost 900 Diva points. I love their clothes and their accessories. I will continue to be honest about my purchases from this. There are items I love, and others... not so much... but no retailer is perfect... even though to me Torrid is close. Not to mention... Hubby loves their clothes. **BONUS** Get 10% Off your Entire Purchase at Torrid.com - Use code 4AF10OFF at checkout! Valid until May 15
Silkies - Okay... YEARS ago... my mom got me hooked on silkies. A hosiery company that delivers to your home on your schedule... AWESOME. Not to mention that I LOVE their tights. They are extra spandex-y (its a word... I promise) and have great control. They also have skin Enriche Ageless Moisturizer which I've tried and it makes your face feel all firm. They have a promotion for Get $10 Off your next Silkies order of $50 or more.
I have applications in for 2 additional vendors but as above it is only for companies I love and believe in... I will always let you know if any pieces I wear are purchased or recieved as part of my sponsorship. I am also opening this up so that lessor known clothing companies and makeup companies can contact me if they would like me to do a review of anything they are selling. As I am unemployed and have much more time to devote to this blog, I really want to make it my "CAREER". I don't want you to feel like you have to use my links in order to make all purchases, I would just hope that if you see me in something you like and it causes you to make a purchase, you will do so from my site. I appreciate all my readers and the time you take to come by here daily and show me some love.
Editted to update:
Since posting this post... 3 more have come in...
Yours Clothing - So in love with their clothes. My first order will arrive next week I believe.... my first pair of jeggings... will definately post it to my blog. You know how I love to be honest and show my flaws. So it will be great... I will keep you posted on any coupon codes I get and post it to my blog. :)
Charlotte Russe - Love their shoes and clothes. They really need a plus size line (SERIOUSLY) but I heard a rumor that it was in the works. So I will live with their accessories and shoes for now. But for the few of us who are on the small side of plus size. And those who aren't plus sized at all... they are running a special - Five: Find $5 Favorite Tees & Tanks through Wednesday 5/12 at CharlotteRusse.com.
Alloy - Super cute dresses and shoes. Just got the newest catalog the other day. Trying to decide if I am bold enough to purchase their shoes in a 10 as some size 10 shoes I can wear. They have some SUPER hot sandals and peep toes this year. I would love to get atleast 5 dresses. Expect a "Lo Quiero Ahora" post on some of their items soon. 15% Off ANY Alloy Order with code A15CPN
