A Special Shout Out …….

Hey Glossies,

For a long time, I have been crying about certain retailers expanding the product lines to offer plus sizes, especially the retailers who sell more classic clothing.  I am not a ruching and strings Chica aka I don’t like club wear, which is why I have rarely ventured much into the world of plus-size world other than Ralph Lauren*and Michael Kors.  I also can wear traditional Misses sizes, which is why I don’t like when stores do not offer certain products individually rather than in sets e.g. suits.

So my Special shout out goes to Talbots for showcasing Plus-size models in the Women’s section of the site.  Really, I want to give them a super shout out for creating and selling wonderful classic styles for the all women AND allowing me to create outfits from Misses and Women.

Talbots clothes are not nearly as frumpy as they used to be, which is reason I was not a fan in the past.  The clothes are chic for business as well as play.  Talbots does fun and flirty very well, which is why I am glad Talbots has revamped the brand!! Now, if I were AT, I would be shaking in my boots…..Just sayin’. 🙂

*Ralph Lauren has been showcasing plus-size models on its website, who are ethnically diverse as well. So Kudos to that brand too!!

    Whoohooo! Nice clothes and nice to see that they are showing them on real size models! Frustrating to see plus size clothes modeled on a size 4 (not that there is anything wrong with being a size 4 – just that it fits differently). I change my size fairly often, not quite as often as my shoes, but close 🙂 so nice to see they have good looking classics that won’t go out of style!

      Yes, I agree with you on the fit look. Now, if only they could increase the plus size clothes. I want a ruffly silk Ralph Lauren blouse too.

    Talbots has really stepped it up. I loved their fall line.

    I love that dress. It can be glammed up w/ the right accessories. The color of the top is very pretty.
