    OMG – I love the Avenue dress! Anyone find something similar in non-plus sizes?

    Great dresses! A designer told me once that the best think you can do if you are not really thing is to show your legs. Somehow that gives some balance to the figure. Since then I truly think that it’s a great option to wear dresses and skirts.

    These are great options for not only work, but also play with different accessories. has great fashions for a bit more, but totally worth it.

    Great variety of dresses for plus sizes! 1, 3 and 5 have a more professional feel to them while 2 and 4 are more fun evening/weekend dresses.

    These are just magnificent dresses. It brings out the chicness out of you but not in a revealing manner.

    It is great to see more choices than just Lane Bryant. These are well priced and do not look like moo moos. I don’t think that people know how hard it is to find cute plus sized outfits. I would rather be in Valerie’s shoes …

    AH! I been wanting that shirt dress at Target, at that price I need to get it!!

    Valerie- try Donna Ricco (of mrs. obama view dress fame). she’s available at most major department stores

    #3, 4, and 5 are really cute! And wow a dress for $11??

    I love this selection of dresses, though the winner for me is the purple ruffle dress. great blog !

    Keep these ideas coming! I love looking at your picks. Very stylish.

    did any of you see the V Magazine size issue. Also had a lot of good ideas on beautiful high fashion for curvier figures. what did you think of that?
