Plus Size Planets from Retrolicious

Planets Dress RetroliciousYou may know that I tutor first grade reading two mornings a week.. So when I see a dress I like, that I think might also entertain them, I have to have it, and that is how I bought this fun dress with planets (and stars! and a galaxy!) all over it.
screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-3-29-21-amIt is sleeveless so I will need a jacket or a little sweater over it in the winter. It was 56 degrees here in the San Francisco Bay today. I especially love it because it is a mini skirt. I am only about 5’4″ these days and I like my dresses to come just to my knee and not below the knee.
Every time I wear it people comment on it, the colors are so vibrant.

Here is the DRESS (only in a 4X).
Here is a link to a skirt in this fabric.

So here are links to a couple of other Retrolicious dresses in a Size 4X (I am wearing a 3X in this photo).

Footless Tights: SWAK Designs, my favorite, they don’t ride up, they are opaque, and this pair is two years old. And OMG, they seem to be out of stock.
This is my alternative:
Re-Dress Teggings (Extra Long and Regular in varied colors) (but they seem to be out of black too)

affat mapI never see anyone else do this, but I am so interested in whether people from other countries read Affatshionista, and other plus size fashion blogs. So I thought I might post the cumulative map of all of Affatshionista’s history, and I hope I will get to see other blog’s demographics.

Feel free to comment, I would love to know how you found Affatshionista, what you would like to read more about and anything else you would like to say.


2nd Blogiversary Giveaway – $50 Gift Card from SONSI

Okay, it is the third day of our five day Giveaway to celebrate Affatshionista’s 2nd Blogiversary. A big thank you to SONSI for their generous contribution of a $50 Gift Card.

Let me tell you a little story. You probably know that I am a costume person, all kinds of costumes, but the Mother of all costume holidays is of course Halloween. As I was preparing my Halloween post, I received an email from Sonsi touting their costume selection. When I went back to the author of the email with a concern that SONSI did not have much for 4X and larger women. I got a return email saying they had researched their lines and that the brand most likely to fit 4x+ was Dreamgirl. Now that is caring about your customers.

So I reached and they were kind enough to participate in our celebration.
