Mynt Condition: An Outfit Highlight

Perry Fish

Being plus-size has never been easy.  Shopping for a dress for multiple school dances, middle school through high school, was my definition of torture.  Nothing I liked fit me, and most shopping trips ended in tears.  With the exception of a few curves-friendly stores like Maurices, my options growing up in Northern Michigan were slim to non. 

After graduating from college and moving to Chicago in 2012, I found myself immersed in a whole new world of possibilities.  Being plus-size has never been easy...but it was about to get so much better!

Shortly after moving to the city, I started working at Vive La Femme, a boutique that embraced women of size and retailed clothing from 12-24.  I met many other women in the Chicago plus-size community, including bloggers, models, and advocates, through Vive.  Most of them are still very dear friends of mine.

Last year, I was introduced to a new clothing line that was paving the way for fashion-forward, plus-size women.  This line is called Mynt 1792 and is based out of New York .  Even one of my favorite bloggers , Nicolette Mason is huge fan of the line! 

My outfit highlight for this post features my favorite Mynt 1792 top, the cascade sleeve blouse, in black.

Denise Bidot, Tanesha Awasthi, Tess Holiday; just a few of the many plus-size women who are breaking the mold and showing the world how beautiful and strong plus-size women can be.   I am proud to say, I am happy, healthy and curvy, and I am so, so thankful for brands like Mynt who support fashionable, plus-size ladies!
