    Oooh, Pink, I got all caught up in the size chat and forgot to tell you that the outfit you posted is awesome. Lurve the hat with it.

    Hmmm, am I bragging about being mediocre??
    No, you're bragging about fitting into clothes with no adjustments necessary. *seethes*

    There are days when I would kill to fit into clothes made for those whose measures are "under the fashion bell curve."

    And then a day or two later I end up going to the gym to crank out a gut wrenching workout and the longing subsides. Ahhh...alas...the pain of being clad in bedouin tent-shirts and baggy pants cinched at the waist.

    At least I look OK nude.

    It is a pain in the arse to find clothes that fit though, and if I do they are a ridiculous amount of money (aka Kenneth Cole shirts) so I'm more into jeans and T-shirts in order to have money for food. :steam:

    Thanks for the tips, Kangirl. Going to keep an eye for those next time I'm out shopping. J Brand sounds familiar so I'm hoping I may find that one.

    I've seen it marked up past 100%.

Those. I have a thing for platforms, I think. I never really liked those thin soled, spindly heeled Blahniks and Choos - they looked like they would hurt so much. Platforms look better on me and are a lot easier/less painful to wear.
    Platforms do lessen the length of heel that the wearer feels. I've never been big on Manolos either. Choo has made platforms, but in a more demure and reserved style.

Ralph Lauren, well, I've never been a huge fan because sometimes it seems a bit borderline costume-y or, I don't know, too rigid in its northeast prepster/aristo wannabe vibe.
    Michael Kors makes really cute purses sometimes, and evening shoes. However, the quality is subpar. I bought gold platforms last winter, and I felt they were too flimsy. Sort of on level with Tory Burch. It looks pretty, but isn't as well made as it should be.

    I wouldn't say it's wannabe with Ralph Lauren. Most people that buy from Collection and Blue/Black labels are wealthy. There aren't many people outside of that income range, that will pay 700+ for a simple blouse. RL is catering to it's base, which is old money.

    Yet, I'm really not into rugby sweaters and such.

    Sounds pretty.

Although then the designers would have to witness fat people and short people wearing their clothes. AND WE CAN'T HAVE THAT!! The horror!
    It's true that fashion designers have a weight bias. Really short people are a rarity. There's no market for it, thus no reason to discriminate in the first place. However, there are a few houses that include petites. Ralph Lauren, BCBG, Michael Kors. Burberry makes petite coats. Diane Von Furstenberg makes most of her blouses with a one size petite option. Paige and Joe's carry petite jeans. Middle range stores also cater to petites. J.Crew, Kenneth Cole, and Banana Republic. Of course, smaller people can have any garment made to fit them. Whereas, heavy people have no options.

    Well that's depressing.

    I don't think I own any Kors items - nothing from the non-cheaper line, anyway. I have a couple of pairs of shoes and they don't fit well (they seem designed for longer, thinner feet and my feet are of the shorter, wider variety) so they don't get much wear. Shouldn't have bought them in the first place.

    As for RL, I'm just not into his schtick/style. It's just me. I'm not trying to argue that all RL clothes ever are shit.

    Re: plus sizes - Rachel Pally does a plus sized line now and I think I read somewhere that it sells like crazy. Not surprising, I suppose. I'm still watching eBay for a pair of her 'Disco' shorts from last year - they were teh awesome and I left it too late to pick up a pair from Shopbop.

    Yer welcome, Mo!

    Lanvin. :love:

    I just love the dress with the trompe l'oeil effect that makes it look as it the model is even thinner than she really is - that's the kind of thoughtfulness and the sense of irony that makes me fall in love with an item. I have 2 wonderful handbags by this Belgian designer ( Index ) that have a pattern that refers to the inside of the animal the bag is made of on the lining fabric (not in a tacky way). Concept myumm. I love Elbaz's use of colour.

    I want this piece of avant garde fashion design, a lot: Juicy Couture Terry Wide Leg Jumpsuit

    Uytuun - I didn't see your post! I will go and check out those handbags now. And I agree with you on Elbaz. If my bank account allowed it, there would be a lot more Lanvin in my closet. I love Lanvin shoes, in general, as well.

    Dior Homme is my favorite designer wear. Spring and summer 09 was probably not the most fashion forward collection, but I chose it because it best represents my style.
