When I posted, here, about patterns for our plus-size High WASP contingent, some readers wrote in to point out I’d neglected to offer any pieces for the apple-shaped. “Well, that’s no good,” I thought.
Next, I remembered that I’d reached out to Cathy at Austin Slave to Fashion for plus size ideas. She gave me good ones. I forgot to use them. No good. No good at all.
So here’s a little remediation.
First, if you’re in the hunt for a smart, well-spoken, warm blogger who covers tasteful plus-size fashion, wander your way on over to Austin Slave of Fashion, here. I particularly like her interview, here.
Second, for you apples, a few dresses from the sources Cathy provided originally.
From La Grande Dame, for, bien sûr, the Grande Dame. If Ms. Missoni and Mr. Pucci won’t knit her a dress, she’ll take this silk number from Anna Scholz, damn it. Cursing allowed after the second scotch. $299, on sale. Apples order up a size.
From eShakti, for the Artsy Cousin. She’ll wear a collar when Grandmama visits, but may insist on spiderweb leggings underneath. We never know with that one. $95.
And from Lucie Lu, for the Sturdy Gal, a little black dress. She knows she needs one, and she never can resist a good flower detail. $58.
There. Much better. And Cathy, thank you very much. Midlife gives good reason for forgetfulness, none whatsoever for rudeness. Thank you.
