Great News Coming For Plus Size Fatshionistas!

New Shoes Up At TFAS Shop!

From RackedNY: 
Saks Fifth Avenue is about to become the only major retailer in the city to carry plus-sized womenswear by names like Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana. Coming very soon to the department store’s super high-end third floor, fall and winter plus-sized pieces will be mixed right in with existing stock—most of which would formerly have only been available in sizes ranging to a 10. Stock will reach size 14 across the board, and in some cases—depending on the brand—will go up to a size 20

Honestly I think this is a great idea. Finally people are waking up and seeing that plus size women want nice clothes too. They are going to have extended sizes from brands like from Akris, Armani, Carolina Herrera, Escada, Donna Karan, St. John, Oscar de la Renta, Max Mara, Valentino and Michael Kors, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Fendi and Roberto Cavalli. If all goes well in the New York store, then they will roll this out to other stores across the country. Hopefully other high-end stores will take note.

Glad I’m Not The Only One

Who felt this way. Racked NY and I are on the same page here.

From Racked NY:

The Outnet, e-tailer Net-a-Porter’s answer to Yoox, bowed today. The site’s filled with merchandise from designers like Philip Lim, Rick Owens, Marc Jacobs and Anna Sui at 30 to 60% off (which, mind you, is still pricey). There are bag, shoe, clothing and accessories sections, and a page called “Dress Me” where shoppers pick from categories like “Chic Essentials: Stylish Denim” and “Wear This Forever: Iconic Dresses” and are redirected to another page showing an assortment of those items. They’re also taking inspiration from sample sale sites like Gilt, and planning some “Flash Sales”, aka 72 hour online super sales. The first one, a spring dress sale, is happening in 8 days, 2 hours, 49 minutes and 30 or so seconds. Yes—there’s a countdown clock.
