Recession Pr0n

Hi Pr0nsters, I’m slowly recovering from my flu hell, and figured if I was sitting on my couch anyway, I’d bring you some lovely bright pr0n, all under $100! In today’s post I have the most divine purple top you’ve ever seen, a turquoise knotted shirt up to 3X, an organic cami and pantie set from Etsy, and a bright blue button down men’s shirt just to name a few. Let’s dive in.

$79.00

$79.00 by Shar Dann

I’ve been looking for an excuse to show you this top since I found it…which was a while ago.  Via SmashingDarling.com, which specializes in indie designers, Shar Dann is hand making this absolute piece of art.  It’s made out of Modal/Cotton/Lycra, with a Silk applique.

The last time I featured SmashingDarling was during Eco Friendly Pr0n, when I showed you designer Gina Michelle and her bamboo dresses.

I’m in awe of how this top is gathered and sewn; I can’t believe it isn’t twice the price it is. This is purple; it’s also available in Berry and Black, up to XL, which is a size 16.  I’m tempted to find a place for it in my own wardrobe.

.

If you’re a devoted Pr0nista,  you know by now that I believe good fashion has so much to do with detail.  A twist on a simple design can make a boring shirt exciting. For example this turquoise knotted front top from Missphit.

For only $36 my fuller figure pr0n friends can have this lovely turquoise top up to a size 3x.  What’s so great about the shape of this top is that it’s going to work on you whether you have a waistline or not.

The v-neck is going to draw the eye down and create the illusion of a longer/slimmer neck. Then it knots in every woman’s smallest place: right under the bust.

If you have a little waist, this will just make it look better, and if you don’t, this will just hide your tummy and make it seem like you have one.

Wear it with khakis or a casual skirt or jeans and a pair of heels, and accessorize with a great necklace or a pair of dangly earrings…

…and take with you this adorable fuchsia (I spell that wrong every single time) clutch from Lina Pelle that I found on sale at Luna Boston.

(Surprisingly, the last Luna Boston bag I showed you is still available. Just not under $100.)

Most of what’s over at Luna is so very very pr0nish, including Linea Pelle, which is a luxury leather line, so finding this on sale is a true find.  As I’m sure you can imagine, it’s available in limited quantities – especially when you see the zebra striped lining. Couldn’t you just die?

Luna says “Danielle” is a soft buttery leather with funky silver-tone hardware, and measures 11.5″w x 6.5″h x 1″d – enough for your cellphone, ID/money case, lipstick and condoms. (I’m just saying. A true pr0nista protects herself.)

Accessories are so important, aren’t they, dumplings? I like to accessorize with a lovely man on my arm.  Maybe he’s even wearing this aqua blue-with white squares “Chillin Villian” shirt?

In my travels I’ve learned that apparently men aren’t supposed to wear bright colors.  No wonder men dress poorly; they’re bored witless!

Luckily Tobi has this shirt for you.  They’re calling it green; I say aqua blue.  Toe-may-toe, toe-mah-toe.  What matters is that it’s 100% cotton, made in India, and fits true to size up to an XL.  The gentleman to my right is wearing a large; you can see his measurements by clicking on the picture.

For crisp, cool summer dresses, you can find me trolling the racks at Anthropologie, and I’ll be trying on the Missouri Primrose Shift.

In cobalt blue cotton, with a cotton lining and silk flowers climbing up the side, where won’t you go in this dress?

Put it on with a pair of casual sandals during the day, and change into a dressier pair at night with a delicate bracelet and a cardigan – maybe in red or green.

Its available in regular or petite sizes 2-12 still! Go on – time’s a wasting!

Cami $24, Hipster Panties $14

Cami $24, Hipster Panties $14

To stay cool and comfy, slide into this organic cotton cami/pantie set that Louella Bloom sells on Etsy.

I’ve shown them here in plum, but they’re also available (on sale) in yellow, as well as gray, black, and cream, also as a thong, panti and nightie.

The best part to me is that they’re tagless! If you have sensitive skin like your dear blogger, this should be music to your ears.

For something a bit fancier, see the organic silk set I had, also in Eco Pr0n.

Lovely pron friends, there is a time and a place for plaid. That place is not on your man’s shorts or pants.  It is, however on his sneakers.

These raspberry/blue plaid converses are scrumptious and perfectly appropriate with a pair of easy fitting shorts or jeans or khakis.

You can even wear it with something like the blue and white shirt above, just don’t go crazy. Keep it to one additional color, and you’ll be fine.

.

Finally, just as I started with something I needed an excuse to share, I’m going to end with the same. (Really this whole blog is just an excuse to share things I like, but who’s asking?)

I adore Milly New York. I’d roll around in her line if it could (This is pr0n after all.)  The colors she uses, combined with the classic, feminine shapes, attention to detail, quality fabrics and slight retro winks make this blogger’s heart go pitter-pat.

This red button pleat shirt from Shop Twigs is a prime example. If you lean in a bit,  you can see the jacquard pattern woven into the Italian wool.

It’s 95% wool with a 100% silk lining, and it falls 19″ from the natural waist.  Just imagine it with gray tights and a pair of flat knee-high boots (like these Bandolinos $89.95!).

The front pleat is known as a reverse pleat (because it’s reversed, see?).  Normally pleats = bad; in this case, pleats = good.   The skirt is made in NY and only available in sizes 4,6,8, but what a deal you’re getting! Have I really not shown you any Milly yet? Shame on me!

I hope you found something today to add to your closet.  If not, just wait a day or two; there’ll be more! Don’t forget, every Monday is now a new edition of Pr0n Plus!

As always, it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?

Clearance Pr0n – Part 2

Hi there, Pr0nos – thanks for coming! Today’s post is another clearance pr0n post! I’m busy gathering links for this week’s Plump Pr0n (? Got a better name? Help!), but in the meantime there are so many delicious deals out there that my bookmarks are virtually bulging at the seams.

I want to start with a rarity: a men’s site I found that’s in both the U.S. and the U.K. Topman.com has such ridiculous sales right now, I could probably show you everything, but I only bring you the pr0niest fashion. Unfortunately everything that I want to show you is out of stock. :( ( I know, I know – that was all wind up and hardly any release). But I will show you these adorable Moped cuff-links.

I mean really! So you can’t afford a Vespa ? You can afford Moped cuff-links! You little hipster you.

Next, via StyleC*nt , is this really interesting UK clothing shop, All Saints. If I’m not mistaken, some of what they feature would be what the kiddies these days are calling Steampunk. What I call this leather High Flyer Jacket is OMGLOVE.  Like buttah. First, I can just tell from the picture how soft that leather is going to be.  Second, I love the color – taupe maybe?

Finally, what I love most is the styling – they’ve taken a basic motorcycle jacket and changed it up with two extra zippers on either side of the real one. Details like that are what make a piece of clothing pr0n. It was £250 (US $356 more or less), is now £150 (US$213 more or less). Not bad at all for a deelish leather jacket (if you’re a size small.)

.
Their women’s clothes are equally pr0n worthy, starting with the “Rogue Dress”
This is a style of dress you would expect to see at a much higher price point by “big name” designers.  What you should look at in particular is the seaming at the skirt – the way it darts in, and then creates almost a corset effect in the bodice.  The bottom is a lightweight cotton, and then the top – which is almost Grecian the way it’s draped- is silk. Don’t forget that these are UK sizes, pr0nistas – US sizes are about one below, and this is a slim fit.  This dress was £90 (about US$128) – a steal at full price; it’s now £54 (about US$77).  This neutrally color palette is good on so many skin tones; I’m just gaga over it.

.

.
Going in a completely different direction is this mustard colored “Tobacco” dress from Elsa.  Your blogger must confess that she has a soft spot for vintagey/mod clothing, and this dress has me saying “Pass the Grey Poupon!

A round halter neck attaches to a shift darted in the bust, with a seam at the natural waist and two front pocket flaps.  What it doesn’t say is how long the dress is, but throw a cardigan, some chunky “pearls”, colored tights and chunky heeled pumps and you’re set for any occasion.

Originally $350, its reduced to $175 on final sale at ChickDowntown.com .

.

.
Now – this dress needs a fabulous handbag, and if you’re the kind of pr0n lover who can keep a white handbag white for more than the length of time it takes to get it out of the box (So not me.) Feast your pr0n loving eyes on this Tabitha in White handbag from Shoptwigs.com.

This is a classic “bowling” bag shape – I’ve had to shrink the picture significantly for the post, so do check it out in all it’s full sized glory. This is what makes a designer handbag a designer handbag: solid hardware (including bottom feet), serious quality stitching, a silk interior lining and I can only imagine a full-grain leather (as opposed to just the “top” grain).

Now remember the two rules of Shopping Pr0n:The first rule of Shopping Pr0n is you do not talk about Shopping Pron half off Gucci is still a month’s rent. The second rule of Shopping Pr0n is get it while it lasts…first come, first served, supplies are limited.  Keeping that in mind, this pr0nish bag was originally $996 – it’s on sale for $398! In case you can’t divide, that’s better than half price!!

.

.
Moving on, while your blogger understands that her male readers like to be “comfortable”, she lacks sympathy. Have you seen the shoes we women wear ? For that reason, I bypassed “casual” shoes or “upscale sneakers” and went straight for the russell leather “Chelsea” boots by Cole Haan.

If anyone knows leather – Cole Haan knows leather. It shows in these brown ankle boots, leather lining, slightly square toe, and elastic “gussets” on both sides for ease of insertion and removal. These are $265 boots on sale for $129.

.

.
Speaking of suffering for fashion, any amount of suffering is worth these Velvet Angels “Asssassin” double buckle flat boot.  I’m talking black patent leather, I’m talking knee high, I’m talking half off – retailing at $400 (the designer used to design for Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. line), on sale for $200 smackeroos.

You’d normally expect to pay $200 for a great pair of boots, so why not get a better pair? Amirite?

Oh, these boots are from Revolve Clothing, which I found via If the Shoe Fits, which is a very cool blog you should all go check out. As soon as you’ve read this post and commented on it. (What?)

.

.

.
Finally, I have a long distance dedication to reader Thette, who specifically requested a bold printed dress for a curvy woman.  I was hoping to find something a little more distinctly Pucci-esque, but what I did find is this adorable tile print silk shift going up to a size 20 at Talbots.

Distressingly, their “women’s” line (12w-24w) sells no dresses at all at least online. That’s just…completely baffling to me. But this is a lime green summer dress that I’d love to see on a larger woman – however it is going to look best on women who are less curvy, particularly less busty. If you’ve got an hourglass thing going on this straight shift is just going to hide your bootylicious figure. Oh, and it’s silk with a back zip, and also comes in petite!

The absolute best part is that this dress was originally $159, it’s now $74.99 and you get a second sale item at 50% off!  (Say this cotton lawn split neck tunic? It could be yours for $15.00!)

.

Whew! I don’t know about you dear p0rn lovers, but I’m spent! I hope this post gives you something to wear, or at least something to dream about.

As always – it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?
