Wet Seal Plus Grand Opening and Haul


I’ve been eagerly anticipating the new Wet Seal+ opening! I’ve been eyeing the clothes on the website and when I found out my closet mall (The Shops at Mission Viejo) was getting one of these stores, I was super stoked. The grand opening included a fun event that I wasn’t able to go check out on 8/16, but Veronica of Cid Style File went and her instagram pictures got me all excited to go. I actually had a totally legit reason to go to the mall today, so that’s an added bonus haha.

Anyway! The store is really nice, but I had sale vision and didn’t even think to take pictures. D’oh! What I like is that everything is laid out with plenty of room to browse. I hate super cramped stores. I don’t think word is out about this new store yet because it wasn’t crowded — not that I mind. I am kinda antisocial when I shop, haha. I also appreciated that the racks weren’t so crammed full of stuff that I couldn’t move anything. My local Forever 21 is like that…you can’t push the clothes apart because half the garments will slide off the rack.



I fell in love with this Chevron Peplum Top almost immediately. The sales staff said sizes run small, but I found this fits true to size. I love the zipper detail on the back. It’s available on their website here.


This top I shall lovingly refer to as my “flying squirrel” top because it makes me feel like I have little webbed wings LOL. They call it a “Ruffle Solid Top”. It drapes down the front and the back, making it very figure flattering for those poochier than usual days. -ahem- It’s available online here and comes in several other colors. This also fit true to size.


This teal and navy striped maxi skirt was a total last minute grab. I didn’t even try it on. I’m glad I grabbed her though! It’s a straight-cut skirt, but fit true to size. This skirt came in a ton of colors. I’m tempted to get more! It’s available online here.


My second favorite thing of the haul – this amazing Chevron & Lace Skater Dress. This also came in several colors, but I decided to be adventurous and go with green. This was the only thing I bought that I felt ran kind of small – it’s a bit tight in the boobs! But a way cute dress I could NOT leave in the store. I loved it so much I posted a picture on instagram from right in the fitting room. It’s a little on the short side so for work I will pair it with black leggings. No accidental flashing!! It’s available online here.


By the time I saw these jeans (jeggings actually), I had an armload of stuff to try on. These jeans literally promise they will make your butt look better. I thought ‘what the hell’ and added them to my pile of stuff. Turns out they’re my favorite thing that I purchased.

Now, I’m the anti high waist girl. I have a short waist to begin with, so that means most high waisted things come up to my boobs. Not to mention jeans that say they ‘contour’ usually end up making me feel like a stuffed sausage. They look great for standing around in. But they aren’t comfortable to bend, sit, or you know move in. With these jeggings, I have found a new best friend. I LOVE them. Do they make my butt look better? Um, I don’t know. They don’t make my butt look bad. The high waist does come up pretty high, but it’s COMFORTABLE. I can still sit in them and move and bend and all that good stuff. They hold in my tummy without making me feel like a salted pork product. Fit is true to size. They’re available online here. I got them in dark denim but they are also available in black!


Wet Seal+ had lots of really cute jewelry. Almost every top or dress in the place was paired up with a necklace on a mannequin, and it was pretty much written in stone that I wasn’t leaving without at least one new necklace. I chose this floral statement necklace because it will go with everything. It’s available online here. Apparently this necklace is sold in regular Wet Seal stores too. :)

Overall, I loved my first visit to Wet Seal+. They gave me a spiffy coupon that can be used next month – $15 off my purchase of $50 or more. You betta believe I’m coming back! I could have grabbed SO many more things and spent a ton more money if I had let myself. The prices here are more than Forever 21, but less than Torrid and Lane Bryant. The style is a lot more contemporary than Lane Bryant as well. While I like LB (especially for bras and panties), some of the styles feel a bit matronly for someone my age (I’m just about to turn 28 for those of you keeping track!). I can’t wait to come back next month with my coupon and get some more goodies. I’m seeing Wet Seal+ as the alternative to ill-fitting Old Navy Plus when it comes to affordable fashion. Yeah!
