Amanda (the owner) and I
Featured Fridays is a way that I can showcase Curvaceous and Plus Size Women rockin’ an outfit that I would wear or simply because I like their style. Also showcase fashionable local businesses that cater to curvy and plus size women, trends, fashion, nautral hair or something I simply love. Today I have decided to feature a local trendy clothing store in Oakland called Collage Clothing Lounge.
I love Collage Clothing Lounge (COLLAGE)! The owner, Amanda, creates such a warm, welcoming atmosphere with turn tables, upbeat music and trendy looks for all sizes. I stumbled into Collage last April while I was waiting for my friends. My first reaction was “do they have my size or can anything fit me?” One of the staff, who might I add is plus size and has great style showed me a great selection of clothes that she wears in the store. She made everything personable for me, that day I met Amanda who welcomed me like family. Amanda’s spirit is amazing; she made sure that I felt welcomed in her beautiful store full of soulful art pieces, a live DJ, unique clothes, scarves, hats, belts, purses, and jewelry.
When I met Amanda and her staff a year ago was the day I told myself never to look at size again, but always look at the quality and stretch in a particular clothing item. Don’t feel afraid to go into a store that doesn’t “look” like they carry curvy or plus size clothing, they just might like Collage. Oakland has a lot of hidden treasures and I believe Collage is one of those. I love bringing my friends to shop at this cute store that I call my “boutique”, especially on Champagne and Beats Fridays, which is on the last Friday of every month while you’re shopping.
If you are in Oakland make sure one of your stops is Collage Clothing Lounge which caters to all sizes and tell them Fancydime sent you!
