Comments on "3 Perfect outfits for running errands"

As a size 42 girl, I am angry and upset at the way this article completely ignores the needs of my fat, disgusting body. Shame on you for highlighting a maxi dress that will cover one third of my enormous, sagging chest. T

Why would I spend $350, $275, or $600 (rounded) to look like a hobo while running errands? Most of these items can be found at the thrift store (for lack of fashion) or forever21 (for generic style) for next to nothing. The 'perfect outfit for running errands' would be that comfy outfit you picked up for a steal paired with an accessory or two to make it meet the daily style standard, because face it: you don't want to wear your high-maintenance, designer clothing (and worry about keeping it clean/perfect) while running errands. Maybe your title would be more representative if it was "Dream outfits for running errands," assuming these are pieces you simply like and would like to wear while running errands.

Correction: it was the "Casually Cool" outfit.

I love the On The Go Style outfit, but as a plus size gal your vendors do not carry my size. However I used the idea and put together a similar themed outfit at a place that does carry my size. Thanks for the good idea though.
