Ack! Sorry about disappearing! Work has taken over my life for the last little bit
Yelp, ultramarine is right. I usually do a dark, fitted bottom (or, occasionally a wide leg pant in denim or white - but in more of a nautical cut vs a palazzo, palazzo's look really sloppy on me) and a fun top. Any comfortable but gorgeous heels are a plus as well, but I do wear a lot of flats.
For dresses, mine come from all over. LC Lauren Conrad is a line I buy a lot from, but H&M as well and American Apparel for those convertible ones.
I hope that helps!

LC's clothes don't look like they'll fit me. THey're sizing is a bit weird I think, but I love her line.

Just wanted to mention ... I am not plus size, so I can't wear the clothes, but on my sister's recommendation I checked out Lane Bryant's bra line, Cacique, recently (starts at 38). I like it. I didn't like all of the styles equally, but I bought a couple. One thing I like a lot is that it's a lot more colorful and interesting than a lot of what you find in my size. Often the fun bras stop at 36, and the industrial strength styles start

I felt like I was getting a little bit of attitude for not being plus size, but they kind of came around ...

I think the only constantly good thing at Lane Bryant is their intimates line. I love there bras. The cotton underwear is very comfy and cute. And I have a nightgown from them that is fantastic.

Awesome! Thanks for the info!

It kind of reminds me of the style that torrid.com used to have. Kind of punk/rock and roll-ish.

It's been a while since I've posted.

I just have a couple of notes.

The Limited is launching a plus line. I think it's called elloqui (sp?) and is taking some cues from bloggers, namely Gabi of Gabifresh/YFF.

And there was more Marc Jacobs plus talk this week. I'll believe it when I see it. If he does do it, I wonder where it will sell besides his own stores and maybe Saks Fifth Avenue.

IMO, Nordstrom Encore's spotty with higher-priced pieces. Years ago, I remember chatting with a buyer who said that she had a limited open-to-buy and had to use it on cheaper things.

Neiman's plus is online only. They had NM Woman's Studio in-store in the late 1990s and abandoned it.

Thanks, 24hourteaparty!!
It's not together -- it's actually a JCrew Haberdashery blouse (size L) and a missoni x target head scarf that I tied as a bow!
And in case you mean the white one -- it's from H&M (current). It's a size14, and it was 9.95. It comes in white, orange and pattern.
