From Francesca’s Inbox – NOW UPDATED

Filed under: Uncategorized — Francesca @ 9:09 am

ZAPPOS has finally made their site more user-friendly and less “busy” looking, and now it is much easier to shop not only for shoes but also for their plus-sized clothing (most of which is super-casual, but there are business and party pieces as well. Liz Claiborne addicts will be happy they visited.) Remember, free shipping both ways, always. Francesca’s Pick.

ANNA SCHOLZ, too, has relaunched her website. The photography is excellent and Francesca enjoyed perusing. What she appreciates about the new labels is that everyone can find something they like; if they are willing to pay for it.

CHADWICKS is having a clearance sale.

FIGLEAVES has new items in outlet.

IGIGI has come out with a new maxi dress (pictured), and through Feb.20 is offering a free gift and free shipping with purchases of $150 or more. Francesca does not know what the free gift is, but the email implies that it is a set of pretty earrings that match the dress.

SILHOUETTES will take $30 off your purchase of $125, or $50 off your purchase of $200, through Feb. 22, with code  SBE3.

LORD & TAYLOR is offering free shipping through Feb. 18, and is having a clearance event. Also, print this coupon for in-store savings, or use code PRES for 20% off your purchase. (If you have a L&T card, use that and code PRESPLUS for 30% off.) Plus-sizes here.

EVANS is offering free shipping in the UK through tomorrow. Also they have taken 20% off all coats, jackets, and knitwear.


  1. I love Anna Scholz’s new website, or I did at first. But why all the wild prints? Do larger women not appreciate a well cut solid colour dresss? Some of the shapes seem pretty boxy as well.

    It’s expensive. Maybe if I look more carefully, I can find the tailored solid coloured garments I want.

    It’s frustrating.

  3. ‘Tis a very pretty maxi dress. However, where in the heck would you wear it? I can see wearing some of the more casual maxi dresses out to a bar/restaurant/party on a summer day. But this one looks more formal…but not formal enough for an actual formal affair…
