I was on This Next looking for sweaters in a plus size when I found this adorable thing:
Of course, that sweater is no longer available, but when curiosity caused me to click through to the designer's website, I found many more lovelies!
I love the structured jackets and the flowing dresses in this designer's clothing line, as well as the wild, colorful prints!
I feel like American designers have really dropped the ball with designing for plus sized women, and that ladies in the UK have so many more flattering, stylish options. Considering how people in the U.S. fuss over the "obesity epidemic," one would think that they would make more clothes for fat people. Maybe they're just providing us with awful clothes in an attempt to shame us into being thinner.
Anyway, the designer is Anna Scholz, and while her designs are way out of my price range, they are very lovely to look at. You can purchase items through her website or through her salon on the Saks Fifth Avenue website. She also has lower-priced but still lovely options at Simply Be.

Right now I am staying at a friend's apartment (which is where I fell down the stairs, it's on the 2nd floor), with three adorable kitties as my companions. All three are Snowshoe cats, which I had never heard of before but which I think are really pretty. The blur down in the corner is because one of the boys decided to play with the camera strap just as I was taking the picture.
In other news, I won a giveaway from Sarah over at Classroom Chic! It's my first giveaway win ever, and I sure can use it. It's a gift card to Ross, which I love, so I'll have to let you know what I buy. Thanks, Sarah!
