New collection, and new shoes, at Monif C. | Manolo for the Big Girl

New collection, and new shoes, at Monif C.

Monif C. (for sizes 14 and up) announced today their new collection, “Glamour Donna.”

Francesca looked over the new offerings and feel that they are worth a look if you like the brazen, I-will-wear-an-empire-waist-even-if-I-am-Apple-shaped” Monif C. “look.” If it works for you, go with it.

Myself, Francesca feels that if you are going to spend $250 on a dress, you are better off doing so at Talbots. Or even better, wait for a sale at Talbots and buy two dresses.

However, a couple items in the new Monif C collection did catch my eye. This red party dress would look great on a Pear with not-lumpy-squishy arms:

(Please, skip the distracting stockings. Thank you.)

Also announced today: Monif C. is starting to sell shoes in large sizes and wide widths! Francesca cannot complain about a new source of shoes.

Again, one must be careful. The boots here are, to Francesca’s eyes, black woolly cockroach killers. But these strappy leather sandals are flirty and fun, and from here the price looks fair:

Happy browsing and happy shopping!

xoxo, Francesca

    You had me sold on the red dress until I took a closer look at the “looking back over her shoulder” view… the armhole seems to go clear down to the waistband! Eeeep!

    Kelly – I noticed that too! Apparently you either don’t wear a bra with that dress, or you do and risk flashing it to everyone. That is, IMO, not so very superfantastic.
