So, so very glad to find this website: EShakti. They make adorable clothes that are relatively affordable-ish in sizes 0-26, and they have this great customization feature in which if you don't like the length of the sleeve or the neckline on a dress, you can change it. I LOVE wearing dresses but unfortunately they are quite difficult to find in the plus size range, and those that are findable are either always black (which is fine, but I don't want to wear a black dress every day) or way too expensive.

I blame Mad Men. I have just gotten into that recently and the whole idea of styled hair, makeup, and being dressed to the nines every day really appeals to me. Unfortunately it only appeals to Theoretical Me and not 6:30 am Me. That women is pretty unreasonable, and often thinks such thoughts as, "Sure, I can get showered and dressed and made up and ironed and breakfasted and care for the creature in 20 minutes."

That website has lots of cute stuff -- I'll be curious to see what you think of their stuff if/when you order (I can never order clothes online, because I want to touch them first).

Now that I'm working at home, I'm kind of missing the need to dress up a little. It's jeans and flats every day, and that just isn't me. No Mad Men going on over here.

I just ordered these:

Eggplant Dress (With lengthened sleeves 'cause I hate super-short cap sleeves)

Pink Top

Print Skirt

I ordered them a half-size down from my measurements, so they'd probably be close to your size if you wanted to try them on, even.

I love that dress, and it's so cheap (compared to the evil LB).

Oh yeah, and I totally respect the fact that you are getting DRESSED every day. I'd prob'ly take a shower and then just put on clean pajamas.

I think it helps that I have to take Lyric to school every day. I shudder to think how often I would make it out of PJs, otherwise.

OH MY What great clothes! I became a fan and so now it just makes sense I need to use that $15 off before it expires. Mad Men also did that to me, I was obsessed with finding stockings for awhile but my measurements meant buying a size that would have have to be pulled up to my armpits. How can people's thighs be the size of my calves?
