Good Afternoon Friends!
When it comes to shopping, I admit that I can be a bit…. impulsive. I mean well. I make a list. I do the whole, “she’s making a list. Checking it twice” thing. But then I get inside a store, and suddenly I go, “Oooo!!!” at something that strikes my fancy. I’m especially naughty in bookstores. Oh, how I love bookstores. Cappy and Daddy C can tell you that I swoon from head to toe in a bookshop. 🙂 But I digress. Today we’re going to focus on stores that are especially helpful for adult middles. So often we see companies within the Cg/l community that specialize in A.B. gear. And while that’s all fine and well, what about the regressors who need other types of clothing? What if a onesie doesn’t resonate with you? Where do you shop then?
Grab your purses and your wallets, my friends, because today we are talking about all things shopping!! Are you ready? Then, let’s dive in.
I simply love Hot Topic and it’s the first store that I would recommend if you’re a Middle. Why? Because they carry sizes from 0-28 US. They have a host of graphic tees for every type of Middle, including: music junkies, feminists, geeks & nerds, and alternative hipsters. Yes, between the adorable plushies from Star Wars to the Studio Ghibli section to posters of every kind… there is something in here for every person to enjoy. Don’t be put off by the blaring music in the shop, or the goth kid behind the counter. Just shop and find your own personal taste.
Again, I have to give a big shout out to this company for having both smaller sizes and plus size apparel. ASOS has both a UK and US online website for customers to enjoy. What I love about their site, is that you can filter your search selection… by color! So, if you’re like me and love everything pink, simply click the filter to show only pink clothes and voila! Shopping made easy, my friends. Their styles range from boho selections to trendy pieces, to retro styles. They have a little bit of everything. Trust me, you’ll want to check out this store.
Do you want a rainbow dress? Modcloth has it. Would you like a skirt that has a haunted house on it, for Halloween? They have that too! Would you like an autumnal, chic look complete with a plaid skirt, yellow sweater, and leather cinch belt? Then step right up! While Modcloth does have some higher end pieces, their quality is absolutely fabulous. What I love about this site is that they have cuts and styles that you don’t see floating around everywhere. Go ahead and browse for yourself. 🙂 It’s pretty awesome.
Can I just squeal at this next store because it’s one of my faves?!! I absolutely loooove The Pyramid Collection and have bought clothing and accessories from this online boutique many times. Each time they do not disappoint. They have amazing plus sizes. Their website breaks clothing down into fashion collections such as: bohemian, Celtic, fantasy, steampunk, renaissance, etc. They have home decor items, adult sex toys, and tons of fantasy-esque apparel. The quality is fantastic and their shipping is timely. Go ahead and shop, my friends, because this store is fantastic!!
If you’re a fellow gamer, put your paws up because this next shop is for YOU! I love Jinx.com because they have the best t-shirts and hoodies from every major online game. Personally, I’ve worn their World of Warcraft t-shirts and hoodies, and no doubt I will be snatching up a Guild Wars 2 t-shirt in the near future. (Ahem, Santa Daddy, bring me a gaming t-shirt… for me? *bats eyes*) ❤ No, but seriously, their clothing is affordable, excellent in quality, and they have sizes for every body type. Check them out and feel 1337! 😉
This is probably my “one stop shop” for everything clothing. I wear their black leggings on the daily. I have t-shirts and dresses from them. I love their fangirl collections that range from: Disney to Harry Potter to Star Wars to Wonder Woman to DC Comics and Studio Ghibli! They have wonderful pieces for Middles to enjoy. Are they expensive? Yes. Will we still buy them because they are cute, and in our size? LOL yes. My recommendation is to shop at Torrid Online versus their stores because you’ll get the full selection.
If you want cute clothes on a dime, shop the clearance section on this website. They have an ever changing array of fashion styles, holiday pieces, and plus size fashion to fit every taste and preference. Middles will squeal with joy over the eclectic pieces. I know I have purchased several dresses and tops from this shop and loved the cut and fabric of each one. They are well made and exceptionally affordable. Check it out for yourself! 🙂
Many Middles veer away from the pink dresses and unicorn-clad t-shirts to embrace a more vintage, steampunk style. Historical Emporium is your one-stop-shop for everything steampunk for both men and women! What I love about this store is that they have pieced together collection outfits which allows you to simply click on the outfit you enjoy, and a list will pop up for the individual items in your outfit to purchase! It’s that easy, my friends. Enjoy shopping at this vintage online retailer!
PacSun has been around forever and is known for their beach-bum attire. They have shifted their apparel over the years to attract a more broader range of clientele with their colorful graphic tees and sporty-looking attire. If you love distressed denim, airy, flowing shirts, and strappy sandals, this store is for you.
“OH MY GOSH THEY HAVE QUAGGANS!!!” was the exact words that I squealed the first time I came across this site. Yes, this gamer-friendly apparel store has clothing whose designs are created by fans… for fans! Hence the name. I absolutely geek out at online shops like this and with a devoted Guild Wars 2 section, I was sold the moment I laid eyes on their page. If you’re a nerd like me, then I know you will love it too. ❤ Go ahead, have a nerd-gasm. 😉 I won’t tell, hehe!
Alright my friends, that’s it from me for this post. I hope you all enjoyed it. If you did, hit that like button and let me know. I hope you have a wonderful night, and I will see you back here for the next topic!
