"Gloria" dress, available at Igigi. Francesca does not know why the picture is stretched; this new WordPress thingy is making her nuts!

Kiyonna has unrolled a new website. Check out the new “Behind the Seams” section.

Jessica London is having a Final Summer Sale. Also, if you buy anything from their a href=”″ target=”_blank”>new arrivalsbetween now and Saturday and enter code JLE4502, you’ll get 30% off your “preferred item.” Francesca would think this means the most expensive item, but the fine print suggests that it applies to the whole order, so she’s not sure. At the very least it applies to one item. Francesca’s pick(pictured above)

Avenue will take 30% off your highest-priced itemwith code AV91119. Good through Saturday. (Tip: If you are visiting their site at work, turn off your speakers first; they’ve added music.)

Igigi is offering free shipping on orders of $150 or more, until Monday.

Just My Size will give you shipping for a flat feeicon of $4.95, until Monday (no code required). Also, they are having a huge bra saleiconright now (no pun intended).

Always for Me is offering a “sneak preview” of their 2010 lingerie. Get your sexy Santa outfit early while it’s still available in sizes 3X/4X.

Happy shopping!


  1. Dear Francesca & Plumcake:

    I know leopard print is wrong. I am lukewarm on ruffled. But I cannot stop looking at this dress – my eye just comes back to it every time I’m on the site.

    What say you? Black cardigan, tall boots, tights? I’m a brunette with glasses and a short bob. Do I need fashion therapy?

    Have a great day.

  2. Hi Jennifer, I’m feeling non-committal today so choose your own adventure:

    a) Is this a day dress or are you and Mister Flintstone celebrating a special occasion?
    b) If Eartha Kitt finds out you’ve stolen her shower curtain, she’s going to kick your ass.
    c) Same as above, but exchange Eartha Kitt for 1972 Elvis and shower curtain for “snuggle blanket for his favorite yellow Naugahyde sofa”

    Spiegel has some good leopard prints this season, why not check it out?

  3. Thanks, I think I’ve figured out that I like the silhouette but not the print. I will try not to commit any crimes against eyes.
