Plus Size Clothes for Girls

I a couple of weeks ago I ran across a plus size clothing store I had never visited before, and this one was indeed a store with a difference. Specializing in plus size clothes for girls aged 7 to 12, It Chick Clothes, has made it their mission to make plus size clothing for girls that is anything but boring!

It Chick Clothes was founded by Emily Palit and Chatherine Price, after they realized that only a limited number of girls can actually wear 'standard sizes' at most retailers. So they joined forced to create a shopping experience for girls which is fun, and stylish. Their collection includes dresses, top, skirts and trousers, which are fun and colorful. It Chick Clothing

Recently I had a quick chat with Emily, one of the founders, who was kind enough to give us more of a closer look at It Chick Clothes.

What inspired you to create It Chick Clothes?
We both love clothes and fashion, and we saw a need for girls who were being left out of the fun clothes that "other girls" were wearing. The girls we've spoken to have used the words "other girls" when describing what they want to wear; you can hear that they feel marginalized. There's a catch-22 for these larger girls: they're told they can wear the trendier clothes if they lose weight, but this is pretty discouraging. In contrast, we want girls to feel good in our clothes, no matter how much they weigh. We love the lit up faces that we see on girls who wear our clothes.

How long has this online store been in existence?
We started on eBay two years ago, and we opened in early 2006.

Do you ship internationally?

What's the main goal behind this one of a kind online store?
Our goal is to offer really cute clothes for girls 7 to 12 who may have a harder time shopping at traditional retailers. The end goal is to offer the same styles in the right sizes for our clients. The thing is that these retailers offer "half sizes," but some of our clients need a much bigger waist size than a half size bigger.

Visit It Chick Clothes today to take a closer look at this great store.

5 Steps to Slimmer Looking Curves

Saturday, August 25, 2007

This post was kindly submitted by SizeAppeal.

1. Go for the right fit, not the size tag of a garment.
Try on different sizes, as all brands have their own size charts. Buy the size that fits you best, not the size you wish you were. A piece that is too tight will always make you look heavier than a piece in the next bigger size that fits you right.

2. Wear heels!
Don’t worry, there is no need to walk around all day in 5-inch stilettos and get swollen feet that hurt (although they would surely make you stand tall!). A 2-inch heel will give you extra height while being comfortable to wear for most women in their daily life. You will get the longest line by wearing pointy toes in the same color as your pants or hosiery. Avoid ankle straps that cut your leg line.

3. Your pants have to be long enough to cover at least half of your heel.
A straight leg or slight boot cut elongates your legs. Don’t wear French pleats or cropped pants. Your pants should fit snugly, but not too tight. Check for unwanted excess fabric in your butt area making you look shapeless.

4. Accentuate your assets.
Emphasizing your best features distracts from the ones you don’t like that much and makes you look slimmer overall. If you have a slim waist, wear a belt around it or a shirt with a cinched waist. Got nice legs? Wear a knee-length skirt. If your arms are slim, go sleeveless or try cap-sleeves.

5. Wear garments with vertical lines.
It is true, they are elongating and slimming. It doesn’t matter if the lines are created by seams, pinstripes, topstitching, prints or anything else. They all have the same effect. Vice versa, horizontal lines add unwanted volume to your silhouette.

Missphit Launches Online Store

Sunday, August 19, 2007

MissphitPlus size clothing label Missphit has just announced the launch of their online retail site

Prior to this launch, Missphit was only available through a small selection of boutiques and select Dillard's department stores. However, with overwhelming requests from plus size women, as well as a desire to make their clothing more available, Missphit decided to launch an online store to satisfy style-starved plus size fashionistas.

"Some companies take a conservative approach when fitting the larger woman, however our research and experience has told us otherwise. Full-figured woman want to show their curves and feel sexy - and they are" said Yul Kwon, owner and CEO of Missphit, Inc.

The online boutique just launched is very easy to navigate and very pleasing to the eye. Currently the store highlights their Summer 2007 collection, which includes 10 new chic blouses and tops, all in sizes 14 to 24. An easy to follow sizing chart is also provided, helping customers find the perfect size. Prices range from the mid $30's and up allowing affordability for everyone.

This is great news, one which I had been awaiting for a while now. Visit the brand new store, and make sure to add it to your favorites!

Hairspray: The Ultimate Feel Good Movie

Friday, August 17, 2007

HairsprayAfter yesterday's post, featuring Nikki Blonsky's fashion choices, I decided I must go and watch Hairspray. I had been meaning to watch the movie for a while now, but you know how it is, sometimes life just gets in the way.

Well I'm glad I put life to the side for one night as Hairspray turned out to be a fantastic, entertaining and ego boosting movie! I love musicals in general, but this one in particular is colorful, fun and makes you feel like standing up and dancing along to the songs all througout the movie. Visually it is a pleasure to watch, with great dancing and beautifully made costumes.

I loved Queen Latifah's performance in this movie, she looks absolutely fabulous in every outfit, and makes you feel proud to be plus size when she's performing the song 'Big, Blonde and Beautiful'! You'll be constantly amazed by John Travolta's performance (and appearance), and Christopher Walken is just a sweethear as Wilbur. Nikki Blonsky totally rocks the show!

I encourage everyone, especially plus size women, to watch Hairspray. It is the ultimate feel good movie which you should go watch right away!

Nikki Blonsky's Love Affair with IGIGI

Thursday, August 16, 2007

I have been following Nikki Blonsky for quite a while now, looking especially closely at the fashion choices she makes, because so far they rock! So I amm feeling quite ashamed right now to confess that I haven't even watched Hairspray yet! It's been a very busy Summer, but I hope to watch the movie as soon as possible.

Anyhow, as I'm sure most of you have noticed that Nikki is often see wearing beautiful IGIGI pieces. There must be some kind of love affair going on between Nikki and IGIGI, and to me it looks like a very successful and promising match, because Nikki always manages to flatter her curves and look beautiful.

In this post I'd like to go over the IGIGI pieces Nikki has chosen in the past few months. So here goes...

Nikki Blonsky and Adam Shankman

Earlier this month Nikki was spotted at the 60th Locarno International Film Festival alongside director Adam Shankman. She was wearing IGIGI's Yoke Wrap Dress, which she creatively spiced up by wearing a leopard print belt.

Nikki Blonsky on the David Letterman Show

In late July Nikki was a guest at the David Letterman show. For her appearance on the show Nikki chose IGIGI's Dress with Yole in black and red, which was a stunner!

Nikki Blonsky on the Regis and Kelly Show

Another winning look was achieved with the Navy Trench Dress, which Nikki wore during her appearance on the Regis and Kelly show last July 26th.

Nikki Blonsky

On July 20th, Nikki strutted her stuff magically on the 'Today Show' wearing the Polka Dot Dress in red. The cast members from Hairspray were all present on the show, where they also gave a great performance.

Nikki Blonsky

The July 18th Baltimore premier of Hairspray was another great occasion, and Nikki was a star during the night wearing the Stella Cocktail Dress.

Nikki Blonsky

On July 10th, a special dress needed to be chosen for the Los Angeles premier of Hairspray. So it was no surprise to see that Nikki chose IGIGI's Shimmering Dress in Liquid Copper.

Nikki Blonsky

The London premier of Hairspray, held on July 5th, called for another great dress to be chosen. Nikki did not disappoint her audience, and fellow plus size ladies, by choosing IGIGI's Maya Chiffon Dress in black/coral.

Nikki Blonsky

On April 22nd, the Siren Dress in Cobalt was Nikki's top choice for attending the Movieline's Hollywood Life 9th Annual Young Hollywood Awards.

Nikki's fashion sense is a great as her talent. The fashion choices she has made so far were spot on! She manages to choose plus size clothing items to create stylish, sexy and fun outfits that flatter her figure and make her curves look gorgeous. I truly hope Nikki keeps up this sense of style, so that she keeps on being an fashion icon for plus size women all over the world!

New Look

Monday, August 13, 2007

Although the Scoop had been revamped only a couple of months ago, I felt a change was needed! Things were looking too cluttered, and a lot of items were distracting attention from the most important content... the posts! So this weekend I rolled out a new template, giving a new look and feel to the Scoop, which I think is more fresh and sleek. Tweaks here and there will still be made over the next couple of weeks, until I iron out minor issues. I do apologize if you run into any problem. Of course, let me know about these so I'll fix them right away.

Comments and feedback about the new look are most welcome!

How to Be a Stylish Wedding Guest

Thursday, August 09, 2007

Scalloped DressJust as you smile and open the wedding invitation, a sense of dread falls as you see the words "Dress Attire". You start thinking - what am I going to wear??

Here are my simple quick tips to demystifying the code:
  • Formal affair: Make an entrance in a sophisticated scalloped dress.
  • Semi-formal (after 6pm): Perfect little black dresses will never fail you.
  • Semi-formal (daytime): Opt for flirty jersey frocks in everything from earthy browns to vintage prints. To avoid deadly glares, do not wear red or white.
Phew! That was a close one. All eyes are set on the bride - but you're sure to steal a few glances too!
