Outfit of the Day, and a Rad Giveaway - with Your BIG Sister's Closet

Hey Guys,

I wore this dress, which I absolutely adore, last Saturday to get my weekly latte fix with Peter. I think this dress is totally gorgeous, and I felt so pretty in it all day! I love the fullness of the skirt and the volume at the shoulders. It gives the dress a very unique feel. I also love that this dress comes with a belt, which I feel really completes the look. I wore it with leggings and my knee-high boots, but as the weather gets warmer, I'll probably wear it without the leggings, although the length might make it a little scandalous! ;) I really like the contrasting black and grey together, and the dress was very comfy, which is definitely a bonus. All in all, I am very pleased with the quality and style of the dress, and I am definitely going to remix it with different accessories soon to create a different look with it.

I'm leaning towards the black and white dress or blue dress w/ black piping!

I actually really like most of the dresses you've selected for your shop, too bad I'm pretty sure none of them would fit in the booty dept. This one in particular is my fav.

I saw this grey and black dress in your store but was unsure, but once you modeled, I loved the way it looked and if I won, this would be the one I choose!

omgosh!!! and all those new dresses you just added are completely swoonworthy! IN LOVE with the Contrast Cuff Dress, is there any stretch to the material?!

Love the dresses but they are too small for my bust and hips. Please try and get some bigger sized stuff! It seems like everything is size 20 or lower :( I totally want the dress you are wearing but it's one size too small!

@anon - I hear ya! I want to offer bigger plus sizes, but they're SO hard to source! Most manufacturers end at a Jr. 3X. Once I am more established, I plan on designing and commissioning my own designs in bigger sizes, but I just don't have enough capital to do that yet. There are three dresses that go up to a 10X, but they might not be everyone's taste, and they're more expensive than most of the other ones... Here are the links:

http://www.yourbigsisterscloset.com/Mad_Men_Style_Dress_7_Colours2c_up_to_size_10X_available/p1210286_5724367.aspx

If it helps, the dress I have on has a lot of stretch to it, and I probably would have sized down in it if I were ordering again (I am an 18/20). Also, this dress is free around the hips, so you don't really have to worry about that.

@dee - it's Lycra, so yes, it does have some stretch. All the measurements are taken with the garments laying flat, so if it's just a couple of cm in the difference, you shouldn't have too much trouble fitting into it.

I was having the same problem as Dee and Annonymous - the dresses were too small! Glad to see you got some stuff that fits larger. I'd love the green short sleeve dress with black piping - be perfect for the summer weddings I have coming up!

Okay, first comment I've made on your blog, even though I've been following it since late 2011... THANK YOU for all the tips and outfits! Definitely inspired me (as soon as I saw you in that Lucy Liu dress I bought the dove one... my bank account does NOT thank you, but I do!)

Anyway, if I won - I would definitely pick the blue short sleeve dress with black piping. I ADORE it.

Either way - KEEP IT UP. I am a new follower!
