Francesca has been perusing the plus-size vendor sites and do you know, it’s a mixed bag this season. There are a lot of boring, uninspired clothes out there. But do not despair! For, first of all, there are some beautiful things available if you look hard enough. And second, sometimes you just want a plain red sweater in your size to stay warm in, or a simple dress to adorn with the fabulous scarf and ginormous pin you got last Christmas. The operative words here are “look hard,” “your size,” and “adorn.” Francesca hath spoken!
And now on to the sales!
Live near a Lane Bryant outlet store? They are having sales and specials from now through Monday, Feb. 18 in the physical stores (find outlet locations here). Save even more by going here and printing out the coupon before you get in the car. If you do not live near an Outlet, console yourself by going online and buying this black velvet jacket, marked down from almost $100 to just $30!
Do you wear Tall (not plus) sizes, or Large or X-Large? (Yes, Francesca knows that few of our readers can squeeze into an XL or a non-plus Tall size, but she is grasping at straws here.) Check out the new items in the J.Crew sales section.
Coldwater Creek has added 300 new items to their sales section. Some of them are superfantastic, and some are God-awful . . . but anyway at these prices it is worth sifting through their offerings to see what catches your eye! Francesca is thinking about ordering this silk and cotton voile blouse, marked down from $120 to $28. She also needs new sweatpants for the workouts, and for $12 they have some nice ones. (Yes! Fat Girls work out! Remember? You never know.)
Roanan’s is having a bra sale! Up to size 58J, isn’t that amazing? Bra party at Roanan’s! This “5-ways” bra which can be worn strapless or as a halter or criss-cross is available up to size 46F and is on sale for $28. Not too shabby! Be sure to enter code RD11646 (through the 18th of February) to receive 30% off your highest-priced item (whether it’s a bra or not). You can also enter code RD11257 to defer your payment until April (though Francesca is not sure whether they will let you use both codes at the same time).
And now a shout-out to our European readers: Beige Plus is having a sale at their stores in North and Central London. You can also shop online here. (Note: A British pound is currently worth about $2, so double the prices to convert to American currency.) A skirt which Francesca has formerly recommended is available for “only” $650. (But you know you want it.)
Happy shopping and happy weekend!
