Hot party dresses at
So I was on the Nordstrom website the other day, and noticed that they have the most fabulous dresses right now for some reason. I find plus size dresses to be a definite weak spot in the plus size clothing market, so I thought I should share my findings with you:

iconJS Boutique Shirred Two Layer Dress, $190.00

• Ruched bodice
• Back zip.
• Print layer with solid polyester lining.
• Rayon/nylon; hand wash.

iconDonna Ricco Halter Dress, $148

• Faux buckled sash at waist.
• Ties behind neck.
• Hidden side zip.
• Polyester lining.
• Silk; dry clean.

iconAdrianna Papell Ovals Party Dress, $178

• Silvery glitter finish.
• Oval-patterned mesh.
• Removable velvet ribbon at waist.
• Back zip.
• Princess seams.
• Tulle underskirt for fullness.
• Approx. length: 52".
• Full acetate lining.
• Polyester; spot clean.

iconECI Halter Dress with Charmeuse Waist, $148

• Ruched charmeuse waistband
• Matte jersey halter dress with sheer mesh overlay.
• Charmeuse ties behind neck.
• Back zip.
• Approx. skirt length: 26".
• Polyester; dry clean

I have to say I am having a hard time trying to decide which one is my favorite. I love the ECI Black Halter dress, but its also a basic black, which is expected. I think the JS Boutique one is the one that definitely reminds me most of straight sized styles, just because of the beautiful pattern and the details like the ruched bodice. Whatever the case may be, these are 4 dresses definitely worth considering if you have a party coming up!!

Smooches, Lisa

    I like that JS Boutique dress too. But do you know of any good online stores for dresses with sleeves? I'm not a big fan of my arms... and I don't like carrying wraps with me all the time.

    I love the first dress. All of them are great, but the first is a dream. Anonymous sort of beat me to the punch in asking about the arms thing, though I'd like some tips on venturing into the sleevless arena for the first time in probably 5 years. My issue is not the size of my arms - I think full, soft arms, like a full, soft body, look sensual, feminine and huggable/cuddly - but the issue of stretch marks. My hyper critical mom and friend say they're not particularly noticable primarily because I'm a Brown girl, but I'm still self-conscious. Any advice, other then just doing it? I have a wedding in August to attend and simply don't want to miss out on yet another summer of cute sleevless tops and dresses. By the way, LOVE BPP and the blog. You, along with and a few others on the World Wide Web have been instrumental in my finally learning and coming to love and accept my body. Thank you!
