Where to buy jeans when you’re short and plus size?

Fashion Advice Plus Size Fashion

I hope you can take a few minutes to answer a question about jeans. I used to wear NYDJ in an 18WP (women's petite). NYDJ has stopped making WP-size denim.

Shopping Hits and Misses: ELOQUII Edition

Fashion Advice Plus Size Fashion

I’ve been doing a lot of shopping from ELOQUII this year, plus they have sent me some things.
