Doll inspired clothing for plus size women





Don’t you just love the look of these dresses!  The style is described on the Miss Alphabet Myspace Page as Japanese Street Fashion.  Reminds me of Harajuku clothing.

From what I know the dresses are handmade by Miss Alphabet herself.  Who by the way is the lovely lady in 3 of the 4 pictures above.

The clothing is available on etsy.com.  Check out Miss Alphabet’s blog on LiveJournal.

Trentacosta is a line started by the designer/photographer Darren Trentacosta.  He is also the creative director of Shopbombshellmagazine.com.  Trentacosta goal is to give curvy women the chance to wear fashions that are typically only available in smaller sizes.

This seasons offerings are light and shapely and made entirely out of cotton.  You’ve gotta love that!  What better material for the summer than cotton? The dresses are available in sizes 10-24.  From the looks of the site, there may be more to come for S/S 09.

Crystal Renn is yet another one of my favorite plus size super models.  She brings it everytime as she does in this underwater photo shoot.  That’s right… underwater!





These are some amazing photos…one of the best plus size editorial shoots I’ve ever seen!  Ms. Renn couldn’t have looked better!

This is very exciting.  I have always believed that plus size models could do high fashion spreads in this manner.  Creative, alluring and seductive.  Those are just a few of the adjectives I can think of.

The photographer’s name is Luis Sanchis. He did the girl justice.

Torrid’s shoes are made to fit wide feet (and boots are made to fit a wide calf).  Their shoes never cost tons of money and they are always in line with today’s trends.  These are some of Torrid’s best looking shoes yet.

Evans is the leading UK plus size retailer, with sizes ranging from 14-32 and bra sizes from 38-50:B-H.

As you can see the Evans site is fab and has a lot to offer.  I particularly love all of the t-shirt styles available.  They are not your everyday t-shirt shapes and styles, many are very feminine and modern.  Be sure to check out the swimsuits…within the next week I should be doing an all swimsuit posting for fablove.

Evans does ship to the U.S. (yay!).  You must convert the currency (yahoo has a great currency converter).  And when shipping is over $200 in the U.S. other fees may apply, but you can separate orders and receive the smaller fee on each order.


There was a time when I didn’t think I would make it if I didn’t have at least a few summer pieces from Old Navy…

Foil-Logo Tee Cabot Cove


Slub-Knit Nature Tee Back-To-School Blue


Lace Trim Jersey Chemise Pink Dots


Pointelle Scarf Cardigan Green Light


Old Navy plus size clothing is available in sizes 16-30 and 1x-4x.  There are many fab things to choose from on the website.  That’s why this Quickie is not so quick.

Hurry and get your basic tees and other summer essentials…’cause they sell out fast!  And I have a feeling this summer is going to be a hot one.
