Let’s Go Shopping!

Filed under: Fashion,Petite and Plus-Size,Sales,Swimwear — Francesca @ 12:41 pm

The holidays, when we treated ourselves to new clothes, were oh-so-many weeks ago, and the drudgery has set back in and now, to boot (no pun intended) you might be sitting alone at home on Valentine’s day.

Do not despair! A little indulgence, a little online shopping is just what Francesca ordered! The superfantastic addition to the closet means the superfantastic feelings of confidence and flirtatiousness are not far behind!

So, here is the recent news in Plus-Size shopping:

If you are planning on buying anything at Kiyonna, now is the time: until midnight tonight, buy at least $150 of stuff and you get free second-day air shipping within the USA — so your stuff will arrive quickly. They just moved many cute items to the Sale section, too. If you are a Pear, Francesca likes this sweet and versatile dress, which is on sale at 50% off and this sexy satin shell in black and ruby, 30% off! At those prices you can buy three items before you reach the minimum for the free quick ship! coupon code of the week: Now until the 20th, enter AV81066 at checkout and get 20% off. Spend $100 or more and get 25% off! They recently added many new items to their inventory so it’s a good time to check them out. Francesca lurves some of the new items in their swimsuit section, such as this yummy “support and control” number available in black, red, and –Francesca’s favorite — this lovely, warm brown:

For our Ren-Faire fans, this just in: now has free shipping, to anywhere in the world! No minimum purchase! Woo hoo!

Talbots is now selling a line of pants which are machine-washable, made out of a fabric called “Dina.” Francesca has no idea what this is, but reminds that Talbots has an amazing return policy so trying is low-risk . . . and asks that anyone who tries it please write in and tell us what you think. The pants are available in Woman and Woman Petite sizes.

Prefer to shop in stores? Here is a coupon you can use at Avenue stores until Feb. 18!

More coupons and news to come soon . . . Francesca is busily trying to catch up after her absence!



  1. I found a new ebay store that sells dresses that are not quite as over the top renfest as Holy Clothing. I even think that some of the “ahem”… height challenged might find a few things there. I saw one dress that was 52” long but has a gosh awful ruffle at the bottom that would be a snap to rip off.

  2. Hey, I live in Talbot’s “dina” trousers. I am a short waisted pear, and I need to wear suits to work, so I wear Talbot’s petite jackets, with woman’s size pants and skirts. The beauty of Talbot’s is that you can pick a top and search by color for the pants and skirts that match. I have made “suits” out of nice wool gabardine jackets, and paired them with “dina” pants. They match the wool jackets exactly, and the pants are comfortable, soft, substantial, wrinkle-free and WASHABLE. They last forever, and I wear them to work and on weekends. Pick thoses babies up whenever they are on sale. They changed my life.
