I usually am strictly DIY… seriously. But I do check out big fashion for inspiration and for those pieces I just don’t want to make by hand. As a larger lady 2013 has been huge dissapointment commercially. The pallet for the spring/summer season is crap. The worst parts of the 80’s have come back and of course the offerings for the average american woman suck – let along options for those of us just a little bit bigger.
That said I found a designer I liked that made clothes that weren’t just shapeless squares of blaaaaahhh. Joe Browns… though on the designer site (UK) they didn’t have the bigger sizes they did have them on Simply Be.
I thought it was worth a mention.
