Shoe is a Shoe is an Accessory: Match Your Tops

You just got invited to meet friends at TGIF for Happy Hour.  You go through your clothing collection and find the right top.  You pick your basic pant or skirt to match and bingo you are ready to go!  NOPE.  You forgot to look down.  Yes, you feet are also part of your wardrobe.  Please do not forget them.

Being a plus size 3x woman I always choose my tops, shirts and blouses first before I buy shoes.  I do this because its hard to fit the right fit for my size.  When I do find it and make the purchase then next step is to wash it.  If it still fits after washing then its part of my top drawer!  But I am not finished there.  Just finding the right shirt needs to have the right shoe.  If you are a shoe lover like me this can be really fun.  There is so much on the internet that one can really get lost.  I often find Pinterest a great way to start my hunt for coordinating shoes.

On a recent web browsing I discovered the shoe category at Etsy.com.  They have a nice selection from vintage to bridal.  In fact you can have a custom handmade shoe in the color of your choice.  For those you spend less than 30 minutes a week online I am listing a shoe artisan that you may find as a shoe resource.  Ginger the owner of 2dye4designs will work with you.  Simple.  Just message her and tell Ginger which colors you want to match with your new top, shirt, blouse or dress.  Her shoes are cotton.  They are made with love and sunshine!  The price for custom flat shoes is affordable, too.  My tip here is to try to match as many clothes as possible for one unique hand painted design.  If you can do this you will save a bundle and have less of a hassle when making a shoe selection.

Remember finding shoes should be fun.  Take your time and enjoy the discovery.

Women’s Plus Size Clothing: Sale, Discounts, Coupons

I love a sale!  At the moment,  www.comfortinfashion.com is offering a “Welcome” coupon.  It is pretty simple.  Just go to the website, browse their women’s plus size clothing, add to your cart and when checking out enter the code:  goodgoing

Your total purchase will be subtracted by 15%.  This is great!  You save on shipping and more.  Even better if you order $150 or more Comfort in Fashion offers free shipping within the USA.  And!  You can get the 15% off your first order.  That is a good deal.

Not too many plus size clothing stores for larger women always offer a newcomers discounts.  I think it is a pretty good idea to get the questionable buyer to purchase.  Often I can be on a fence about a website, especially when it comes to clothing and electronics.  I prefer to have sales and discounts on my first order rather than a coupon for my next purchase.  (Geez, how do I know when my next purchase is going to happen?  I tend to live from paycheck to paycheck!  And like most people, I believe, I already know what I will do with those monies!)

Besides Comfort in Fashions “Welcome Coupon” they have other sales.  If you go to their website there is a category Clearance.  Their Clearance is a very serious deep women’s clothing discounts.  Most of the tops, blouses and shirts are $24.95, as well as their separates, tunics and cotton jackets.  The price is great.  Of course their sizes and quantities are limited they usually have something in my size.  (I am a 3x with a bit of chest and need more room at the hip.)  This is also a great way to try their clothing.  Remember, this is a clearance category and garments are non-returnable.  In addition, they cannot be exchange.  But, heck for $24.95 its worth it.

I love to hear about other sales, discounts and coupons for big sizes.  Let me know what you have found!  Happy Shopping.

Casual Plus Size Clothing for Summer Travel

Summer is almost here, and many folks are already busy making their plans for this season’s vacation. While taking some time off is always enjoyable, planning and packing can be stressful. Here are some tips for preparing a suitcase full of casual plus size clothing for summer travel.

Lightweight: Summer style should be light, cool, and relaxed – especially when you are on vacation! So bring light cotton, linen, and jersey tops that won’t weigh you down. This will also help you with the second tip…

Pack Light: Traveling is much easier when you make an effort to pack light. This is easy if you bring a few plus size separates that can be mixed and matched to create several outfits. For example, bring a skirt to wear with some of your casual tops. Pack a dressy cover-up that matches one of your tops and now you’ve created a formal outfit – and you only had to pack one extra piece!

Pack Easy: Pack items that are easy to launder and don’t require ironing. That way you won’t be stuck searching for an iron in your hotel room. Casual plus size clothing that is easy to care for also tends to be lightweight, so you can check off the second tip, too.
