Plus Size Picks from the Nordstrom Clearance Sale

Plus Size Fashion

When I do sale pick posts, I usually mix all sizes together because I think it’s crap that larger sizes are separated (and usually hidden in the corner of a store if existent at all).  Also many of you Wardrobe Oxygen readers are cusp sized and shop from both departments.  However, when perusing the Nordstrom Winter Clearance sale I was impressed by the plus size options and found so many…

Ask Allie: Flat Shoes with Femininity and Polish

Fashion Advice How to Wear Fashion Trends Plus Size Fashion shopping tips

What to Wear: Dreading a Semi Formal Summer Wedding

Fashion Advice Plus Size Fashion

I have been invited to an out of town wedding. It’s outdoors, in the Texas heat, on the grass and the invitation advises us to choose our footwear carefully. The attire is semiformal. I’m a pear-shaped thirty-something who is most at home in jeans, tees and skate shoes and I like to hide my midsection the most. My bust line is large and embarrassing. I normally stick to loose fitting…
