There are some incredible deals to be had at Evans, the UK-based plus-sized chain. They ship practically everywhere, and their hosiery is so much better than anything I can find in the states (what happened to Lane Bryant’s tights? They were awesome once, but now they don’t seem to rock my casbah nearly as much as they once did.)
After-Christmas sales, plus a vastly-improving exchange rate means there are some real steals to be had by shopping across the pond.
I’m particularly enamored of this rose print dress, which is on sale for less than $40.
It’s very Dior Fall 2007 Couture to me with a touch of our Funky Little Fashion Troll’s eponymous collection (Galliano Fall 2008 RTW) in the shoes:
Andre and I once had a small falling out at Saks because I wanted to look at the Dior and he –being a Frenchman– could not handle the indignity of an Englishman designing for the venerable house and dragged me bodily away.
