Nordstrom is Killing It in the Plus Size Department

Fashion Advice Plus Size Fashion

I sometimes wonder about buyers for department stores; it’s like they think anyone over a size 12 wants to wear only dark and dreary colors and waterfall cardigans.

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. ELOQUII for me is hit or miss, sometimes it fits as though it was custom made, sometimes I need to be 4” taller to make things work, sometimes (especially with their pants) I don’t have enough hip or thigh.
