Steals and Deals at Neiman Marcus

Turquoise Skirt Suit, $93.75

Turquoise Skirt Suit, $93.75

It’s getting to be that time of year, pr0n stars: where the temperatures are high and the prices are low.  It’s the time of year where you can find incredible deals even at stores like Neiman Marcus, that might otherwise be off your radar.

There were so many great finds that I had hard time whittling them down for you.  Let’s not waste any more time.

.

Have you ever found a bargain so good that you almost wonder what’s wrong with it?  Don’t wonder, just BUY this stunner of a turquoise suit.

The jacket has a portrait collar and button front with long sleeves. It comes with a peplum pencil skirt, made in the USA.

Here’s the kicker: this entire suit is still available in sizes 6, 8, 10, & 14 (classic sizing).  The site will take another 25% off the current price when you get to checkout, bringing this $250 suit down to $93.75.

If you need summertime suits, don’t let this one slip!

Gray Leather Trapeze Jacket - $103.00

Gray Leather Trapeze Jacket - $103.00

.Sizes 16/18 I got your bargain right here, and it’s a gem.  How would you like a grey leather trapeze jacket?  Yeah?  How about for  $100?  Yes?  Good?  Okay – here you go.

Exclusive to NM, a gray leather trapeze jacket, size XL (16-18).  I adore the feminine details; check out the funnel collar, 3/4 length sleeves and gathers just above the bust.

The trapeze shape is going to make it super flattering and easy to wear.

You’re not going to pay $295, oh no.  Your price is only $103.00.  Get it NOW.  Bargains like this don’t come around very often.

Bettye Mueller Two-Tone Sandal, $195.75

Bettye Mueller Two-Tone Sandal, $195.75

Pardon me for oversharing, but I want to lick these shoes.  I’m a huge Bettye Muller fan; she makes shoes that are feminine, fun and a little funky – frequently with just a slightly retro feel.

Think of these two-tone sandals as an investment:  an investment in deliciousness. Two-tone patent leather open toe sandals come in either blue/purple or hot pink/orange, with a t-strap vamp, and 3″ stacked heel.

If you get open toe shoes, I beg of you not to wear closed toe hose with them.  You can even buy footless hose now!  Seeing covered toes peeking out from an open toe has got to be one of my fashion pet-peeves right behind Visible Panty Lines.  But I digress.

Lots of sizes (5-9) are still available in both colors.  Normally you’d pay $390 for the privilege of slipping these on, but take an extra 25% off the sale price at checkout for a final price of $195.75.

Artist Colony Tunic in Baked Apple, $35

Artist Colony Tunic in Baked Apple, $35

.Let’s go bargain basement.  Is $35 low enough for you?  Buy the Artist Colony cotton tunic and wear it Spring through Fall with jeans or underneath a suit, or even with a pair of bermuda shorts and sandals.

“Boho chic” is still super stylish and popular; the embroidery bib, gathered empire waist and slightly puffed sleeve give this shirt a bohemian vibe without looking messy or out of date.

Pictured here in “baked apple”, it’s also available in black and taffy (ivory), sizes 4-10 contemporary, which runs a little smaller than a “classic” fit.  A size guide is available on the web page.

An empire waist tunic is really flattering if you’ve got a little tummy to hide.   Empire waists stop at your smallest part, just under the bust, and then skim over what’s below.  Three-quarter length sleeves are a great way to also bring the eye up.

Juicy Couture Flower-Button Trench Coat, $194.25

Juicy Couture Flower-Button Trench Coat, $194.25

Would someone please buy Juicy Couture’s flower-button trench coat so I don’t?  *cries*

The hardest part of writing a shopping blog is that inevitably you find something you want to buy, and I want this coat.

Juicy’s clothing is always colorful and slightly girly.  How can you not fall for a poinsettia red short cotton trench with 3/4 length sleeves and gold-tone flower buttons?

Sizes petite (0) to XL (14) are still for the taking, but Juicy definitely sizes contemporary so check the size guide.  Save another 25% at checkout, for just over half price off $398 – final price $194.25.

taryn by Taryn Rose Driver Ballerina Flats, $98.25

taryn by Taryn Rose Driver Ballerina Flats, $98.25

.
If you’re like me, you love the look of little flats, but your feet hate them.  Enter taryn by Taryn Rose’s Driver Ballerina flats.

Is it a driving moc?  Is it a ballerina flat?  It’s both and it’s ergonomically designed to fit your feet.

You may care that Taryn Rose was an orthopedic surgeon before she was a shoe designer, or maybe that these oh so cute shoes come in blue and camel patent leather, were made in Italy with fantastic stitching detail.

You should care that instead of $195, they’ll cost you $98.25, and there’s still size 12 available in camel!  Someone tell me I don’t need the blue ones…

.
There’s lots more to see, like this Nanette Lepore Buzz sundress for $81, so don’t wait, and be sure to enter code NMSUMMER for free shipping.

I just saw that Saks is having a big clearance, so I’m off to see what’s there. That’s it for this edition of Shopping Pr0n, my little pr0n panecotta.

It was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?

Shopping Pr0n Exclusive: Spring at SimplyBe!

SimplyBe Plus Size Dress: Juan4

Juan 4?

Welcome to March, pr0n darlings!  I’ve hated to be away from you but I promise it will be worth it.  This is a very special edition of Pr0n Plus; Shopping Pr0n has been given an exclusive (I think) sneak preview of the new plus-size women’s Spring line at SimplyBe.  Everything at SimplyBe comes in sizes 14-32! Remember that plus size black and white ruffle dress from SimplyBe I showed you two weeks ago in Pr0n Plus?

Our good friend Charlotte from Gok Wan (maker of fine plus-size shapewear) wrote to me the other day with pictures from their new Spring clothing trends.  Please take a moment to check out their press release.

Until the line at SimplyBe goes live on Friday, you’ll only see these pictures here (probably)!!!

.
This little hottie is from the Bohemian Boutique collection, but I’ve never seen a Bohemian that looked like this!  I told you in last week’s Pr0n Plus that a cobalt blue was going to be one of the “it” colors this spring and I’m right!  (I love being right!)

I see a scoop neck ruffle tiered dress that goes to about mid thigh, with straps wide enough to hide your bra (or Gok Wan shapewear.  Just saying!).  The styling here is adorable – black tights and a black pump or Mary Jane.  But you could also wear it with a pair of dressy sandals.

SimplyBe Plus Size Fuschia Dress: Bohemian Boutique

SimplyBe Plus Size Fuchsia Dress: Bohemian Boutique

Also in Bohemian Boutique is this smokin’ little fuchsia number.  It’s also coming up as “Juan 4″…sooo I’m thinking that’s wrong. :)  Just call it  ‘That Hot Fuchsia Dress’ until Friday.

SimplyBe Plus Size Double Belt

SimplyBe Plus Size Double Belt

This is definitely more tunic-y to me.  I might be a bit fashion forward and pair it with this awesome double belt from the Homespun series, and maybe a pair of skinny jeans.

Plus sizes can wear skinny jeans, but they’re relegated to the more apple-y shaped.  Pears need to stick to a straight/boot-cut/wide leg jean to balance our booties.

.

SimplyBe Plus Size Long V-Neck Cardigan

SimplyBe Plus Size Long V-Neck Cardigan

You could also use the belt with this comfy looking oversized blue v-neck cardigan.  I can’t tell if it’s a long sleeve or a 3/4 length, but this is a cardi that’s long enough to be warn by itself over leggings or jeans, or a casual skirt if it’s long enough.

I love the cornflower blue color, which is so flattering, and the the front pockets I think I’m seeing.  Throw a long sleeve T-shirt under this to go causal, or a silky cami to dress it up!

SimplyBe Plus Size "Homespun" Patchwork Tee

SimplyBe Plus Size "Homespun" Patchwork Tee

.

Back to you pears and hourglasses – this long tee/tunic is adorably bohemian, even though it’s part of the Homespun series.  It’s so very flower-child in red and blue patchwork.

It’s with jeans in this picture, but why not wear it with a pair of long shorts and Grecian flat sandals?

.

SimplyBe "Homespun" Fringe Hobo

SimplyBe "Homespun" Fringe Hobo

By the way, the handbag the model is carrying here is so totally part of the collection.  Release your inner ’70s chick with this tan hobo with fringe, grommets and an outside pocket.

Simply Be Mexican Sunrise Butterfly Dress

Simply Be Mexican Sunset Butterfly Dress

.

.

Oh!  I’m completely neglecting Mexican Sunset. Poor Mexican Sunset!  How could I ignore this butterfly dress?

Multi-colored butterflies are scattered around a slouchy black short sleeved dress, and then repeated in a mini-butterfly pattern on the bottom hem.

This has got to be one of my favorites.  It’s going to be flattering on a variety of plus-size body shapes and you can wear it with one of these wide bangles and a bunch of really skinny ones.

Mexican Sunset Flower Dress

Mexican Sunset Flower Dress

Okay, two more of my favs!  From the Mexican Sunset collection, this lovely black chiffon dress with a big orange and flower on the side.  This is so feminine and so summery, with the flutter sleeves and deep neckline.

It’s more for a curvy pear/hourglass shape because of how it skims the body.  Apples want shapes that flow more away from the body, especially around the waistline.  What they don’t know can’t hurt them, right? :)

.

Homespun Embroidered Elastic Waist Top

Homespun Embroidered Elastic Waist Top

Finally I want you to see this long white top.  It’s embroidered with blue and red around the scoop neck, and front pockets, and has an elasticized red empire waist.  It’s suitable for all body types, and patriotic in lots of countries!

.

My sincere thanks to Char for the scoop.  Let’s all head over on Friday and give them a little Shopping Pr0n love.  We’re lucky to have such a wide variety of thoughtfully designed plus-size clothing.

.

Until next time, it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?

(FYI, there is no “pay for play” here on Shopping Pr0n! If I feature something, it’s because I really and truly like it. I get no kickbacks other than basking in the glow of your love. )
