Plus Size Ladies Need Clothes Too!


Personal shopping is one of my favorite aspects of my business.  One of the most unserved markets is the Plus Sized Women.  Designers don’t cater to this market and they are truly missing out. Lane Bryant and Torrid are two of the stores that sell plus sized clothing but are lacking what these women really need.  For one, they assume all curvy women aren’t.  Most tops are boxy and made of from cheap fabric.  A woman with curves needs structure in fabric, not shiny cheap polyester. Two, the styles are very trendy, not timeless. What’s a curvy girl to do?

Enter Madison Plus, a full service fashion mall of sorts for the full figured woman.  Ladies rejoice, someone is finally paying attention.

With award season upon us, I can’t help but oogle the amazing dresses, jewelry, and shoes.  We may not be able to afford the Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, or Valentino dresses that grace the red carpet.  But, we can have the look for less.  Faviana is the name of the dress designer who is known for creating replica dresses. After searching the web, here are some of my favorites.

Halle Berry’s Pucci Dress


Halle has been one of my favorites style icons for a little while.  She understands her body and wears dresses that complement her shape well.  I have to say I really like this dress on her even though I normally not a Pucci fan.  The colors, the print and the cut off the dress look great.  I am not wild about the cut outs below the girls, that’s the one thing I would change.  What do you think?

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Step Out At the Vanity Fair Afterparty


For those of you who don’t know who Justin Bieber is, get on board.  I went to see his Never Say Never flick a few weeks ago and was duly impressed.  Justin has paid his dues, there was no overnight sensation.  He has more passion and drive than most adults I know.  You don’t have to be a 12 year old girl to catch Bieber fever.  I love that him and Selena make such a fashion conscious cute couple.  They complement, not compete. You gotta love young love….
