New Year, New Design

It’s been a while since I last posted on the Plus Size Clothing Scoop. I apologize for leaving everyone hanging like this, especially during the Holiday Season. But I have been busy working on the redesign and restructuring of both and the Plus Size Clothing Scoop. The first phase of which you are seeing here today.

Before I get into the details however, I sincerely hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, and I wish you all the very best for 2010! Let’s hope this year brings about peace, health, love and happiness for all.

So, back to the redesign point. If you have been following the Scoop and for a while you might have noticed that although the ‘main’ site (which is the plus size clothing directory) and the blog reside under the same domain (i.e., and are part of the same ‘umbrella’, they have looked very different! Quite honestly there has not been a very good flow between them, and this is what I have been working to fix over the past few weeks.

I am redesigning both the directory section of, and the blog section so there is much more consistency. So people landing on and then clicking on to the blog will not feel like they have jumped into a different site. Instead they will feel like they have jumped into a separate section whithin the same site, which is the way it really is. In fact one major change is the blog logo, which you can see above, and which now follows the design used by the main logo itself.

So today I am launching the new design on the blog, and over the coming days I will be launching the new design for, which will be very similar to this design.

I hope everyone finds the new style easy to navigate. Please bear with my while I iron out some last minute hitches, and please leave your feedback in the comments below! Should you run into anything that doesn’t work, a broken link, or anything of the sort, please let me know. Your comments are much appreciated and encouraged.

So tell me, what are you first impressions of the new design?

    Is there any way of adding a segment on tall sizes as well? I typical fit 16-18, but due to my height, many of the fashions don’t fit this 6 foot gal all that well. I found a shop in Providence RI call Botecelli’s thanks to your site and she is also tall….so that was helpful….our Tall Girl Shop in Boston just closed :(

    Keep up the good work!!!

    I love it! It looks great. Nice and bright. And you filled in the about page. :)

    I think it would be helpful if you added a “sociable” plugin for the social networkers. Making it easier for them to tweet/facebook/myspace/digg etc your posts.

    A “commentluv” plugin is also nice.

    Otherwise, lovely. I look forward to seeing the facelift on the main site.

    Congratulations on the huge makeover!

    Thanks Moe for the compliments and suggestions. Definitely will be adding those in the coming weeks, tweaking things as I go along. I hope to launch the new look of the main site this evening. Fingers crossed!

    Kristen, thanks for the suggestion as well. I’ll carry out some research and see what I find. Will definitely consider adding a new section, if not will definitely update you in a blog post dedicated to tall sizes.

    Love the new look but right now the only way I can comment is to click on the header to bring me to the individual post I am not sure if this is on purpose or not. Love the layout, the flow, the colors. You did a great job!

    I do like this new design, the three column look really works. Congrats on a job well done.
