We’ve totally been talking about Etsy as a plus-size resource for ages and ages (up to and including bad-ass bikinis), and the site continues to not disappoint. I mean, seriously. Via the incredibly cool Deena of Fat Girls Like Nice Clothes Too, who is fabulous and upon whom I have a crush, comes this absolutely gorgeous dress. I gasped when I saw it, I did. Out loud. Are you tired of things being called “Mad-Men-esque” and retro and etcetera? I am too. But it still is, and I could never, ever get tired of it. Perfect for work, perfect for cocktail parties. Pretty much perfect. And it’s made to order, with your exact measurements. Seriously.
Check out her other stuff while you’re over there–this sweet and sexy dress is a particular favorite, this wrap dress has got POCKETS, this pencil skirt is killing me with how hot it is, and a lady with the right amount of sass, style and panache could pull off this super-cool architectural blouse that I want very, very badly. Also, all her models are actual, real plus-size chicks and I want to bite them all. Yum.
And while we’re at it, check out this excellent older-but-still relevant article on other plus size designers you can find on etsy. I’m just thinking, see, how it’s coming on the holiday season and all, so you are going to need new clothes for parties and things, am I right? I am so right. HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOUR HOT BUTT.
