Amazon Deals: Plus Size Clothes and Santa?
Big news (no pun intended)! Amazon has endorsed Fashion Fulfillment’s clothing line for larger women in their apparel department. How cool is that? I got the news just 2 weeks ago. When I found out I looked through Amazon’s category “plus size clothing for women”. Not to my surprise the usual stores that you find ranked on the first three pages of Google came on the first pages of Amazon. Later I had some time to spare and entered other search phrases into their search bar like: women’s plus size clothing, clothing for plus sizes and plus size women’s clothing. How nice it was to find new independent non-brand online plus size clothing stores! I discovered these non-brand stores did not have a lot of product however they have a loyal following. Furthermore, the few garments they did offer had been purchases by over 100 happy customers. I have to say I never thought about buying my clothes from a non-specific online store. But why not? The security is good and their reputation is stunning. Their return policy is 30 days. Plus their sellers have to be on top or they are off. I guess I do like the experience of going to a specific clothing store online. These stores have a built-in brand. I tend to agree with their brand and like their of graphics and easy to find policies.
Online stores like Amazon and eBay offer so much variety. When I first started my clothing search I was looking for casual tops. After 20 minutes I was looking at sports outfits. Yet another 15 minutes later I had ventured into children’s toys because I was thinking of holiday gifts for my nieces and nephews. By the time I wrapped it up I was in electronics purchasing a new (and deserved) watch for my husband. Hahahahaha! On check out I had a new top for Christmas day, an antique Barbie for my fabulous hair dresser, stuffed Santa Claus for the twins and a Timex underwater watch for my better half!
What can I say? One stop shopping on Amazon from clothes to Santa!

“There is an amazing feeling of artistic accomplishment when all the parts come together into one harmonious aesthetic. It's a connection with who you are and the elements you choose to express yourself visually. This is what making clothing is all about for me. It's like when a songwriter hears his first written notes from a voice or a baker who has practiced a recipe and nails it or a figure skater who exceeds her own expectations. I express my sense of art in clothing. I see things in color, shape and texture. I react to the touch of silk on my skin and my eyes are aware of how color combinations make me feel. My goal is to bring all of these intuitive notions to garments that are sized for larger women. If I can accomplish this then I have reached my goal.” – Stephen
