La Grande Dame: High Fashion Plus Size Site Review

The Lowdown: Here at TBF—and in just about every group of real women we’ve ever encountered—one of our biggest shopping complaints is the lack of fashionable options for women who aren’t a size 8. Finding affordable options that you’d actually want to wear out of the house is even harder. And while Lane Bryant is […]

Yahoo Search Pad: Review

Okay, we have to admit—we were a little perplexed at first as to how the Yahoo Search Pad (now in BETA) would be any different than cutting and pasting websites and notes into a document or notepad on our own computer.

The New Shopbop.com: Site Review

We’ve long been fans of Shopbop.com at TBF, as a source for picking up designer clothes for less (which isn’t a necessity, but certainly eases the bottom line for the designer-addicted among us). We have to admit though, we haven’t always been fans of their site design. Apparently, Shopbop wasn’t either, and—to the great delight […]

Meetmark.com and Markgirl.com: Site Review

A few years back, Avon decided to update its image and target a younger demographic, so they added Mark —a line of makeup designed to be used, and sold, by young women. The line has never made a huge splash, as far as we know, but we’ve always been a fan of Avon, even if […]
