I've been badgering the instagram page of coolgalblue for a couple of days. Every since I saw all of the amazing goodies on the site, I didn't think I needed anything else but I was wrong!
I saw a post of a oversized clutch that I fell in love with. Too bad it was sold out. But the good social media person on Instagram informed me of a few in stock. I jumped on it!!

If it weren't for instagram I wouldn't spend so much money! Lol.
I came across the site called coolgalblue from blogger Jessica Kane. They sell clothing and accessories for sizes 12-32. Since I'm usually an 18/20, I decided to give it a go.
I picked up enough items to give an honest opinion of fit and quality. Right now you can get $100 off of a $200 purchase and free USA shipping. There was no tax charged either. I ended up spending $116 after the $100 was deducted.
For those of you considering purchasing I will leave the coupon code for last. Please let me know what you ordered and your shopping experience with the company!!!

I've been hearing some good things about plus size retailer Fashion To Figure. The only reason I hadn't ordered sooner is because there is no store in my state! I do hope they open more stores. I am a follow of the brand on Instagram and I saw that they were having a 40% sale off of regular price merchandise and 50% off clearance. I decided that now was a better time than any to give them a try.
Stripe it chic in our latest one-piece: the Adelaide jumpsuit. A sleek and sexy design, this one-and-done stunner features a plunging v-neck, solid bottoms and tapered ankle for the ultimate on-trend look. Sleeveless, concealed back zip closure.
I decided to go with this jumpsuit because it was just too cute to pass up! I thought the front of the suit was just the right amount of sexy to take you from evening into the night. I also thought it was effortlessly chic. With something like this in your wardrobe, you can look good without even trying!
The Indra scuba bodysuit is a sexy single with edge to spare--long mesh sleeves and a sheer mesh yoke make this design a must for the party circuit. Style with everything from high-waist skirts to distressed jeans. Round neck, long sleeves, pull-on style.
It was love at first sight with this body suit. I have some cute ideas for this one. I hope it fits because I really hate retuning things! I haven't decided about the bra situation. Believe or not I don't have an all white bra! I was thinking of just buying some nipple covers and wearing it without a bra but we will see about that once I'm able to try it on.
Sheer, striped and fit to flaunt, the Wysteria pencil skirt is equal parts flirty and fashion-forward. Paired with a matching crop top, this transparent design is the ultimate trendsetter. Round neck, short sleeves.
I wanted to get a white skirt to wear with the top in case I just happened to attend a white party. Plus I don't have a white skirt in my wardrobe. I almost went with a different white skirt on clearance but I changed my mind because this one is more fitted.
I purchased a size 2, which according to their size chart should fit. I even looked up online what people were saying about sizing to make sure I got the best size for me. I'm crossing my fingers that everything fits the way I envision!!!
So before the discount my total was $103.90. With the 40% off, $41.56 was deducted bringing my subtotal to $62.34. I should've picked up something else because there is free shipping at $75, but instead I paid the $7.95 shipping which brought my final total to $70.29!
Have you purchased anything by this brand? If so please share in the comment section.

Swimsuits For All is a website that caters to women of sizes 8-34. They are a brand that has many reasonably priced suits available and they often have coupon codes or discount codes floating around...(see what I did there...float...swim... Lol)
Needless to say I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get 50% off of their bikinis! I am going to the beach soon and I needed something to look cute in while I'm there. I also took a browse through the clearance section for a onepiece suit for the everyday pool.
First up is the clearance suit.
I got this one because not only was it a good price but it's different from what I normally get for an "every day" swimsuit. I normally stick with black but I liked that it's all black in the back and printed in the front!
The next two suits are from the Gabi collection. I've been eyeing these suits every since launch but I didn't want to pay $100 each when stores like forever 21 were stepping their game up! With this 50% off sale, I didn't feel bad!
I wanted the one piece in this print too but there were sold out. This print is so cute and with gold accessories I'm sure it will be kauuute!
This one is cute and sexy! It's like the little black dress of the the swimsuit world! This one wasn't in stock when I made my initial order so I ended up placing two orders.
So the Gabi bikinis were both 50% off making them $49 each. The clearance suit was marked down to $19.98. Since I placed two orders, I had to pay shipping twice (ugh!) which was $8.99. The shipping price could be better but the suits were too cute to pass up!
As far as sizing goes I'm not sure about the sizes I bought but I'm crossing my fingers they fit! In the one piece I purchased a size 18, in the white bikini I purchased an 18 in both top and bottom while in the black suit I got the top in a 16 due to that being the only size available. According to the size chart the 16 should fit. I'm far from busty, I'm just wide around as far a band sizing goes. For reference I'm always measured at a 42C/D but I always feel better in a 44B. I never fill the C cups and the D cups laugh at me. For bottoms I looked at the amount of spandex in the suits and went with the smaller size since I'm an 18/20.
Did you take advantage of the sale or do you have any cute bathing suits already?
