Best Friend Friday is a #StareStyle feature is designed to show you a range of plus size items on two different bodies with two distinct styles. 

Today's Best Friend Friday is a super special one because not only does it contain six total looks but it also happens to be Kristen's birthday! We are the kind of friends who still make a big deal out of our birthdays and this year, Kristen's main request was that she wanted to leave the country. With all of our other life expenses, we adjusted our lofty plans for a European getaway to a quick car trip to Windsor, Canada. Lucky for me, Kristen was thrilled to just be on foreign soil. 

There's so much I could say about why Kristen is my best friend and I've written more in depth about why I value having a fat best friend for On The Plus Side. If there's someone who is different from me just enough to be get me and  complement me, it's Kristen. 

During our birthday road trip, we traveled to Detroit first and then across the tunnel to Windsor. Since we were driving, we need to be comfy casual for during the day and at night, we were mostly certainly overdressed in the best way possible. But being in Canada seemed like the perfect time to debut the Juicy Fruit Floral Lace Bodycon from the Canada-based plus size clothing store, Sexy Plus. They have a ton of cute plus size clubwear and I definitely felt like a fat Nicki Minaj in this dress. I let Kristen borrow one of my new dresses from Deb Shops and it looks so cute on her! I want to preface the images by saying that the lighting was awful everywhere except the lobby of our hotel but gaudy hotel carpet totally fits with my aesthetic so I'm okay with it.
