New Inventory… New Look for Belle Avenue

Belle AvenueBelle Avenue has taken the word resolution to heart this year! They have started the New Year with a bang, by giving their online store a face lift. And might I say… it is looking great. The store has a much more clean and sleek look and feel to it now, and is quite user friendly. I am sure even the most non techie plus size lady could find her way around the store easily.

They have also added some cool features to the main page. First off clear buttons to different site sections are well placed, to easily get to what you are looking for. Newly added items are listed clearly as well. The have a funky new feature which they have dubbed ‘Connect’ which includes info on modeling, internships, as well as a featured artist of the week. Very innovative I must say.

Besides the new design, Belle Avenue have already recently added lot of new items to their collection, so do check them out today to look at the new inventory and the new site design. Well done Belle Avenue! Keep up the good stuff.

Oh and I am very glad you know ship to Europe as well. Two thumbs up for that!

Trouble Hanging Your Clothes?

XL HangersRecently I came across a very innovative product, which I had to share with you all. Don’t you hate it at times, when you look through your wardrobe for a shirt or coat, and when you find it you suddenly see big old hanger marks on the shoulders? This sometimes makes certain items un-wearable, and practically ruins to look of some items. Well thanks for Dennis and Cindy Anderson, and their cool product, all of that should now be a thing of the past. What am I talking about already? Get ready for XL Hangers!

XL Hangers offer the one and only hanger on the market that will leave no hanger marks in the shoulders of your shirts. Your clothing will stay hung up all the time, and bent broken hangers are a thing of the past. Anderson’s design, has shoulders that are wide enough to help clothes stay in place, and are naturally rounded to keep the shoulder lines smooth. They are heavy duty, and actually have a multitude of uses, even beyond clothing (such as storing linen for instance). They wont break with normal use, and actually fit many sizes of clothing. Perfect!

The hangers currently run in 6 different colors, and are available in boxes of 10 or 50 hangers. The hangers can easily be purchased online at XLhangers.com. However you can also find XL Hangers in a professional golf store called the Dicks Sporting Good Open Store which is located in the Oakdale Mall in Johnson City.

5 Curvy Valentine's Must Haves

Valentine’s Day is soon approaching. Yes people, the big love day is next week! Can you feel the love oozing from practically wherever you look? Personally I am not one to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a big way, not one to make too much fuss about it, nor expect any big gifts. I prefer the simple approach, an extra special home cooked meal, eaten by candle light… followed by some cuddling on the couch with a glass of wine. Now that’s celebrating!

What I do like about Valentine’s Day though, is that it kind of gives me an extra push to take a look at my lingerie collection and see where I can update myself. Nothing says “Let’s get some new lingerie!” quite like Valentine’s Day really, and I have been making my window shopping rounds, and have come up with a fun and sexy wish list. I thought, why not share this with you to get your in the lovey dovey mood as well…

1. Cuban Heel Contrast Top Stocking
For a vintage look and feel these Cuban heel stockings have red contrasting top, backseam and heel. Available in red/nude. Muy caliente!

2. Lace and Stretch Satin Corset
Back in the 1800’s looking like an hourglass meant not breathing. Fortunately, today’s corset has been reinvented with styles that are comfortable as well as supportive. This plus size stretch satin corset with contrasting lace and boning looks just as glamorous as it feels. Delicate ribbon runs through the lace and ties into pretty bows over the bust and hips for a vintage look. A hook and eye adjustable back combined with adjustable straps and garters shows we’ve come a long way, Milady. Choose from bright rose with black lace trim, purple with black trim, black with pink trim, light blue/white, or pink/white. Matching G-string included!

3. Stretch Satin and Lace Bustier
Stretch satin bustier has floating, slightly padded underwire bra with lace detailing. Hook and eye back, adjustable straps, removable garters. Comes with matching G-string.

4. Satin Jacquard Corset
This sexy plus size corset makes for some hot, steamy and delayed passion when your lover has to unlace the ribbons down the back of your corset. If you are in a hurry you can just undo the hook and eye front, but why make it easy. Good things come to those who wait. But on to the corset details: our tapestry-like, long line jacquard and lace corset has lightly padded underwire cups for support, body-shaping side, front and back boning, plus a waist cinching lace-up back. This sexy plus size corset comes with adjustable straps, garters and includes matching G-string. Are you ready to have some fun?!

5. Rose Lace Bodystocking
This plus size bodystocking is for the truly romantic. Cover your curves in dreamy rose lace when you slip into this bodystocking. Wear it in nothing but your stocking feet or a with a pair of simple, classic high heel pumps. Rose lace bodystocking has spaghetti straps and open crotch. This plus size bodystocking comes in black or red.

Plus Size Fashion Industry: What to Expect in 2008?

Curvy womanAfter taking a quick look back at 2007, and the favorite new curvy stores that year brought with it, I’m left wondering and thinking about the New Year and what that will bring to the plus size fashion industry and the plus size community in general.

The unfortunate demise of many ultra skinny models, found its way into the news headlines throughout 2007, sadly too often times. These sad circumstances led to quote some furor from leading fashion magazines, as well as fashion houses and fashion shows. Some countries, including Spain, enforced a minimum BMI requirement for models appearing in the fashion shows, not accepting any which were below the minimum requirement. Although these changes have been slow to happen, and unfortunately have not rippled onto all fashion shows and countries, this is the start and I am sure 2008 will bring with it more positive changes in the high fashion and on the catwalks, to promote a more healthier and realistic womanly look.

It is unfortunately very sad that all of these little changes had to start taking effect only after some models’ deaths, and after many teenage girls and young women created a very distorted image of what ‘ideal beauty’ is. I guess it makes you think of what kind of world we are living in. We always have to come too close for comfort to a situation, to suddenly realize what is happening and for action to be taken. Change is on the way, slowly but surely. So in 2008 I believe more and more change will take place within the fashion industry, to promote a more realistic image of what real women really look like.

Taking on a lighten tone to this post… after all the New Year should bring hope for better things to come… in 2008 I am sure we will see more good stuff from plus size celebrities which have rocked 2007. I sure hope that we will see more good things from Queen Latifah, both in music and on the big screen! Rising star Nikki Blonsky I am sure, and certainly do hope, we will see more of in 2008. Another celebrity which we should definitely hear more of this year is Jill Scott. Jill has in fact recently announced a partnership with Ashley Stewart, to create an exclusive plus size lingerie and intimates line. This line is inspired by the music and writings of Jill Scott herself, and is set to satisfy a full figured woman’s lingerie needs. I cannot wait to see more of that!

Obviously I predict also that we will see a few new plus size stores opening online, which is always good news. I love to have more choice. More importantly, I love for plus size women in general to have more fashion options. Having great choices is key in finding the perfect items for whatever occasion and budget!

So what about you… what do you think is in store for us in 2008? Leave your thoughts in the comments below…
