This season you will see a lot of button down shirts from the tried and true crisp and clean white to an over-sized button down pattern shirt such as this popular stick print shirt from Comfy USA.  Pair your shirt with white pants for a real on-trend look.  Try a reverse button shirt.  Button the first three buttons and the remainder of the shirt unbuttoned with a cami or high waisted pant.  Check out this week’s Fashion Flash from our newest member, Diva Debbie.

We have been wearing the SONSEE tights and they are perfect for every plus size figure!

The tights are made in Italy and they don’t roll, they are not tight or uncomfortable and we have no problems hand washing and wearing them over and over.

From the web site…

• 3D & 360 degree elastane stretch technology allows SONSEE Woman hosiery to fit the lower legs, thighs, hips and waist without sagging, bagging or the dreaded “muffin-topping.”
• An Anti-Roll Waistband so hosiery can be worn high or low on the waist.
• Extra reinforcement at the thighs for greater durability.
• Unlike shape-wear – our product is both comfortable & smoothing with broad ranges in sizing, products and seasonal colors.

Sizing goes by dress size.  The tights got here in a matter of a week.  They are not heavy, hot or uncomfortable.  These tights are really great and can be worn with any of your tunics.  Try a Comfy Tunic such as this Stella Tunic, great with these tights!  Also, check out this week’s Fashion Flash from Prime Beauty Blog!

Department store chain, Target has been quietly removing its plus size section.  Apparently, plus size shoppers have noticed that this section is gone and wondered why.

Signs say, “Big Changes are Coming.”  No pun intended, I hope?

A spokesperson for Target told Blogger Jezebel that they are getting in a new plus size line, but sales associates are not sure when??
