Catherines Store Opening

Alright DC ladies, I have a fun announcement for a new retailer opening its doors near DC! Join me in welcoming a new Catherines store to the area!

Catherines is a retailer for plus women with the goal of making women feel stylish, confident, and beautiful - which is something I totally support and believe in (and is part of my mission as a blogger!). The retailer carries all ranges of clothing from casual to dressier options such as tops, denim, skirts, dresses, jackets, accessories, shoes, hosiery, intimates, and activewear. With a focus on customer fit and comfort, Catherines is a fashion leader for extended plus sizes for women size 14-36. The brand has almost 400 storefronts across the US, and an online store, and a location coming to Ritchie Station Marketplace in Capitol Heights, MD!

Admittedly, I had never shopped with Catherines before, although I knew of the brand. Full disclosure here, I thought Catherines was a brand for older women, which is why I never attempted to shop here. When Catherines reached out and invited me to their opening party this coming Thursday, September 28 from 5-8pm, I decided to look closer at the brand and what they had to offer.

I ordered two outfits- this Sateen Denim Dress from their Curvy Collection, and one other top and skirt combination that you'll see on Thursday at the opening party! I looked through the entire site, and while there are some styles that cater to an older age group, there are a ton of great gems that I would 100% wear today - and definitely want! Their range in clothing styles proves they really do care about customers and providing quality clothing, and style truly has no age. They have some great basic items too, and I'm dying to try on a pair of their stretch skinny jeans on Thursday at the event!

I was completely impressed with the quality and fit of all items I received. Based on the quality, I find the price points to be fair and affordable - a definite plus in my book! I took my Sateen Denim Dress for a spin this past weekend in NYC and I must say it is so comfortable and is the perfect mix of stretch and structure. I felt like a total vixen in the form-fitting dress and paired it with my fave clear lucite heels, kitty purse, and some fun sunnies to top the look and keep it playful. I also added the Honeybee Pin, to channel my inner Beyonce. Plus, I'm really loving pins lately!
