Hey curvy girls all over the world,

If you are going to be in the NYC area next week, then get ready, because we will have our very own plus size pop-up store with great plus size designer clothing. This is a wonderful opportunity to be able to try on some of your fave plus designers without the hassle of ordering on line and having to ship back what doesn’t fit.

Even if you won’t be in NYC, you should probably make plans for this event. SC will be attending and so should you. Don’t you just love the month of September, it’s all about fashion.

According to Metropolitan Green’s website:
Calling All NYC Curvy Girls – Size 12 and up Plus Size Fashion and Fun!
Contemporary fall fashion from Michael Kors, DKNYC, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Cookie Johnson “CJ” jeans will be for sale. Pop up Plus will also feature emerging plus size designers.

Cocktail Party Celebration Friday September 17, 6-9 pm


Open daily from September 16 til 26, 12-9 pm.

Metropolitan Green is located in Williamsburg Brooklyn on Metropolitan Avenue. It is a pop-up space that offers short term rentals for a variety of projects (like shopping) if you don’t want a long term rental commitment.

SC will be attending this event on the 17th.

CURVY GIRL NEWS: SAKS FIFTH AVENUE WILL SOON CARRY HIGH END PLUS SIZE CLOTHES

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

Word on the street is that luxury high end store Saks Fifth Avenue will be bringing back it’s plus size department in a big way. This Fall/Winter season some of us curvy ladies will be able to finally get our hands on some of the most coveted designer brands like Chanel, YSL (My personal fave), Dolce & Gabbana, and Alexander McQueen. Majority of these lines will be available in the industry plus size standards, which are a size 12 and 14. However, there will be brands that will carry sizes up to or even past an 18, but, we will have to just wait and see.

The insulting part of this, is, that for most items there will only be one of each size. I believe this may call for a few little cat fights. I will definitely become aggressive for a YSL suit in a size 16.
I can just imagine the snarky looks some of the Saks employees will be giving once they see curvy girls raiding the racks.

The plus size clothes will only be available in the NYC store, but, if we keep our fingers crossed maybe they will begin supplying a variety of Saks locations.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

I just got the official press release that Simply Be’s USA site is now available for you to shop.

According to the release:
This summer, British catalog and online retailer Simply Be are launching their unique brand of women’s plus size apparel in the US. The eagerly awaited website is now live at SimplyBe.com with a sample of the Spring Summer collection. A full online offering of new season styles will be available in August alongside an accompanying Fall catalog.

Simply Be’s U.S. sizes will be from 10-28. The site offers tons of great pieces for a variety of stylish curvy girls. I will be on it searching for that jumpsuit that The Curvy Fashionista, Marie Denee wore to FFFWeek.

They also offer a variety of shoes and lingerie. Talk about a one stop shop.
