New Curvy Finds and GIVEAWAY!







I absolutely fell in love with this curvy dress from Impressions!  My non curvy sisters and friends are totally jealous of this curvy find!! Truth - I was worried it was a bit short and wore a nude long cami underneath and felt better (and it probably helped I had a marg...or two - no judgies, you try and take pictures of just you alone and tell me you don't need a cocktail :) ).  I wore it out for dinner with the family and felt so pretty. I even matched my babies :)...

 I love it even more because I can't wait to wear it this Fall with jeans and boots or booties.  It is neon, but it will work this Fall, promise.  Especially early Fall when the temps are still high with those sheer lace sleeves. Don't be scared of neons in non summer months - I just tone it down a bit with accessories and boots.  I will wear it with a Fall colored necklace and voila! Completely different look! Wait and see, I will wear it soon :).

Back when we started talking about Suburban Strut again, my sister Tara told me I need to go look at Impressions in Fayetteville - and told me they are carrying a Curvy line now. I about peed my pants!  First - a fabulous boutique down the road is carrying curvy items AND how did I not know about them???? I pride myself on knowing about every size XL in the nation :).

  I talked to the pretty girls there and sure enough, they do carry these items, they are just not on the site YET.  I immediately went and checked out the new clothing there...and I began sweating in anticipation of trying EVERYTHING on!!!  Impressions hooked me up with some fabulous pieces and they want me to scream from the blog that they are now carrying clothes for us curvier gals - not just any kind of clothes, Boutique clothes that y'all will love!!! And the prices will not completely scare you, promise!!!  And there I go again - losing my mind with exclamation marks - but seriously y'all - you are going to love these clothes.  Everything I tried on I fell in love with and had to stop myself from getting it all.  

So here is the deal - these items are not online yet, but will be soon.  I have some pieces I will posting this week so you can see some of them and you can call the store, tell them Suburban Strut sent you, and order right then (phone number 479/301-2292, Monday-Friday 9am-6pm or hello@shopimpressions.com). Oh and be like me, and beg them to get these pieces on the site :).

 They have fabulous regular sized items too that I buy as well: great cardis and overlays, boots and shoes, and gorgeous jewelry and accessories.  Go check out the website!!  They just posted a gorgeous Fall Lookbook this week and a couple weeks ago they posted an adorable Gameday lookbook!

So here is the EVEN BETTER news - Impressions wants one of you to win $100 gift card to shop there! That's right - ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS!!!!  Can you believe it?!?!?!  To enter  here you just need to comment with your email address and what you want to buy with the gift card!  There will be a post on my instagram, @suburbanstrut, shortly with a few extra ways to enter!  Winner will be chosen on Friday, August 15th!!

Good luck!!!  Love y'all!!
