Like many girls who grew up in the 90's, and who had a serious coming-of-age around the release of Clueless (like, as if - don't pretend it didn't have a major impact on your sartorial proclivities!) - I had a deep seeded love-affair with the quintessential American mall stores like Wet Seal, where I could take the $20 weekly allowance I received and buy a tube top, fedora, and a bottle of Orbitz. A good... many years later, I'm being reintroduced to Wet Seal under a completely different guise: the on-trend, budget-friendly brand is launching plus sizes in a really major way. Their e-commerce is already up and running, but as of tomorrow, the selection will be available in 35 in-store locations - a major coup for fashion loving curvistas. You can join in on the fun at one of their in store locations, or join me online for a live twitterchat using the hashtag #wetsealplus, (PS - my twitter handle is @nicolettemason). We'll be ranting and raving about all things plus size fashion, and I'll share some of my favorite pieces in the new collection - including these amazing striped leggings (Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice... Beetlejuice!) and this saccharine sweet polka-dot frock.

I'll have even more details tomorrow (like some selfies, which, be-tee-dubs, has just entered the Mirriam-Webster dictionary as a real word so I can use it as much as I want!), but I hope to see you online at 4PM EST tomorrow!

What do you guys think of the return of Wet Seal?? Anyone else feeling nostalgic for mid-90's mall culture and feather pens?! Memories...

This post is part of a series sponsored by Wet Seal.
