Happy Pr0niversary Sales!

Happy Pr0niversary to meeee!  And you!  And us!  It’s a few days late, but we’ve been shopping together for two whole months now!  It seems like just yesterday that this blog was just a gleam in my eye.  They grow up so fast.  To celebrate, I’m pulling together every sale, sales code, and sample sale invite in my arsenal and giving them all to you.  I didn’t have time to wrap them all.

Smocked Detail Dress, 32, $45.73

Smocked Detail Dress, £32/ $45.73 at Simply Be

It wouldn’t be a Pr0niversary without mentioning the very special offer we have in conjunction with Simply Yours and Simply Be.

Ignore the first-time buyer’s offer at checkout and use our exclusive code: KLUY4 for 20% off plus size fashion, lingerie, footwear and shapewear – good through April 15.

I’d never forgive myself if I didn’t show you this cream colored smocked cotton dress, with brown applique on it.  Usually I’m not a fan of gladiator sandals, but I love the styling here.  The dress is all cotton with cotton lining, sizes 14-32.

Narraganset Quinn

Narraganset Quinn

Why not treat yourself to a new spring handbag?  They’re 30% off at Kate Spade; that’s right all of them.  March 26-30 enter code SFF3263E and take 30% off your entire purchase, including sales items.

If you need a bright, colorful tote for spring do not wait to pick up this red Narraganset Quinn.

With a 6.5″ drop it’s definitely a shoulder bag and it’s wonderfully structured.  Once $345, with 30% off it’s yours for $139.30 + $15 shipping.

.

Thanks to my pal Grechen over at Grechens Codes, I found out about a 20% discount at American Apparel.  One thing I appreciate AA for is their committment to a fair job at a fair wage with fair benefits; that’s a rarity in the garment industry.

American Cotton Spandex Jersey Yoga Pant, $28

American Cotton Spandex Jersey Yoga Pant, $28

As I’ve mentioned before, even certain so-called “cruelty-free” companies are not especially forthcoming about their production, other than to say they’re not made in sweatshops.

Anyway, if you don’t mind their slightly unsavory ad campaigns, use code MISSYOU09 to take 20% off.

I’m a fan of their yoga/workout clothing, such as their cotton/spandex yoga pants. Like most of their clothing, they come in several different colors.  Like pink!

Banana Republic Silk Ruffle Dress, $67.99

Banana Republic Silk Ruffle Dress, $67.99

/

Now through March 29th (so get cracking), code EXTRA20 will save you an extra 20% off sales items at Banana Republic, where prices are generally reasonable anyway.

Your blogger highly recommends trying this lavender silk ruffle dress for spring.  It’s such a classic shape and feel; almost 1940’s, and the color is quite flattering.

Just pay mind that the skirt may be clingy.  Spanx are your friend. You want to be smooooooooth.

.

Finally, I have a code for 25% off one regularly priced item Greenloop, which is filled with lovely organic and eco-friendly clothing, such as these to die for red faux-felt Cherub Pumps by Beyond Skin.

Beyond Skin Cherub Pump Faux Felt, $220 at Greenloop

Beyond Skin Cherub Pump Faux Felt, $220 at Greenloop

Appease your inner environmentalist and your inner fashionista when you whittle the price down to $220 with code GL25A09, through April 5..

Onto the codeless sales:
Tulle Cardigan with Ruffle
Tulle Cardigan with Ruffle

I think I’ve shown you one thing from Tulle before, but I definitely haven’t shown you anything from their men’s side, Cloth Logic.

Right now, everything from both sites’ Spring I collection is 40% off.  Tulle has adorable, feminine clothing with a retro feel, like this Cardigan with Ruffle.  It’s only $36.00 and goes up to an XL in colors Scarlet and Lagoon.

I have to warn you that I just looked at the size chart and they are tiny.  I almost think this has to be some sort of a misprint or it’s meant to be a Juniors line, or maybe it varies by article.  An XL appears to be a 4/6?  Do look carefully pr0n addicts.

.

Cloth Logic Zip Up Sweater

Cloth Logic Zip Up Sweater

Selection is limited over at Cloth Logic, but I’m a fan of this Zip Up Sweater with striped sleeves for $54.  This doesn’t appear to have a size chart at all.  Check the return policy and buy with caution.

.

Robert Rodriguez Kimono Top, ShopBop $200.20

Robert Rodriguez Kimono Top, ShopBop $200.20

ShopBop is having a spring sale: “Buy now, Wear now”.   Neither the selection nor the prices inspired me, but I did find a few gems, including this fashion forward kimono top by Robert Rodriguez.

Kimono tops are a bit of a throwback to the ’80s, but trust me, there were worse trends back then.  This particular top comes in mild dahlia, and black charmeuse.  I’d really like to see this on someone.

.
Sweaters at Ann Taylor Loft are buy one get one 50% off, which isn’t a half bad deal (ha!)

Ann Taylor Loft Short Sleeve Flower Cardigan, $49.50

Ann Taylor Loft Short Sleeve Flower Cardigan, $49.50

The Loft usually isn’t my style but this short sleeve cardigan with flower detail caught my eye.  The shrunken fit makes for great layering,  and the colors look like there’s something for everyone.

Ann Taylor Loft Puff Sleeve Square Neck Sweater, $44.50

Ann Taylor Loft Puff Sleeve Square Neck Sweater, $44.50

Buy the cardigan for $49.50 and get this flattering Puff Sleeve Square Neck Sweater for $22.50.

.
Now comes the really fun stuff – where if you’re lucky and act quickly, you can get unheard of deals on brands from Valentino to Hanky Panky, from Theory to Porridge, from Burberry Prosum to Shoshanna.

A while back we talked about Sample Sales.  Today I’m going to show you all my favorite sites.  Most have brand “boutiques” that open for a few days.  They usually require an invitation from another member, so you tell two friends and she tells two friends and so on.

With some sites you get a credit for every friend who joins, with some for the first purchase they make, and with some – both.  Hi, I’m Dinsquared and I’m your friend. :)

Shoshanna Quilted Shift Dress at Rue La La

Shoshanna Quilted Shift Dress at Rue La La

My absolute favorite is Rue La La.  Every day at 11:00 a.m. EST two or three new brand boutiques open.

Get there early.  Prices are crazy low and items sell out in the blink of an eye.

For instance, at their Final Sale this $395 quilted Shoshanna shift could have been yours for $99.  No lie.

I can’t generate one code or link to share, so if you’re interested just leave a comment on this post and be sure to include your email address.  If you prefer, just email me directly: shoppingpr0n@gmail.com.

Vintage Crystal Stone Hinge Bracelet, $64/Alex and Ani @Hautelook

Vintage Crystal Stone Hinge Bracelet, $64/Alex and Ani @Hautelook

No one can see it but me, and I’ll email you an invitation double quick!  HauteLook is the same way, so if you leave me a comment, I’ll send you an invite to both.

Gilt Groupe has even more amazing high end brands such as Ted Baker, John Varvatos, Chloe, and Thakoon.

Christian Audigier Pink Faith, $68@Ideeli

Christian Audigier Pink Faith, $68@Ideeli

.

Time is running out on the Ed Hardy sale at Ideeli, but if you were a member you could get designer Christian Audigier tees like the Pink Faith for $68 compared to $110.

Just make with the clicky, and happy pr0n!

Whew!  After all that partying I’m tired!  Bringing you all these fabulous steals and deals was worth it, though.  You’re my pr0n stars after all.

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

Exclusive! 20% off Plus Size Fashion & Lingerie

Pr0nsters, have you ever thought to yourself, “I’m special. I deserve special things just for me?”  If so, your time has come. Because you’re all special, I have an exclusive sales code worth 20% off at Simply Yours and Simply Be.

If you’re new to the Pr0n, or need a refresher Simply Yours is a fantastic UK site for plus size lingerie and shapewear, featuring the really gorgeous stuff by Gok Wan.  Simply Be is the clothing and accessories end of the bizzness: they’re the  lovely people who gave us a sneak peek at their Spring clothing line.

.

Beach2Beach Underwired Swimsuit, 27.20

Beach2Beach Underwired Swimsuit, £27.20/$39.36

What haven’t I shown you yet?  How about a dreamy retro-styled underwire swimsuit?

Not only is this Beach2Beach swimsuit available in red and black in a huge range of back/cup sizes, but it can be worn as a halter or a bandeau!  I think that is the coolest thing ever.  Then again I’m easily impressed.

When you get to checkout, enter KLUY4 for 20% off! (Price I show includes discount).  The site may offer you 10% off for being a new customer do not put this code in your bag, put our code in intead. :)

.
Footwear!  I didn’t even realize they sold footwear (clearly I don’t look very closely), but my pal Charlotte tells me that our code is good on clothing, lingerie/shapewear and footwear (probably accessories, too).

Viva La Diva Peep Toe Pump 24

Viva La Diva Peep Toe Pump £24/$34.75

I swear I will not show you patent leather shoes today!  Really.  Okay, I lied.  But you have to see these Viva La Diva taupe faux patent leather booties.

The heel is three and a quarter inches with a peep toe,  and they go up to a EEE Width!  Pop these puppies in your cart, take 20% off with code KLUY4 and pay only $35!!  Wow!

Remember when I was talking about trenchcoats (You do remember)? Well, if you’re in the market for an adorable versatile trench, feast your eyes on this Mac with Pocket detail.

Mac with Pocket Detail, 46.40/

Mac with Pocket Detail, £46.40/$67.21

The jacket is cotton/nylon, with a nylon lining, it’s 36″ long, sells in black and ivory and has the cutest little ruching on the pockets.

According to Simply Be it’s a best seller, so if you want this, act fast!  Like all their products, it’s available in sizes 14-32.  I need something like this.  *pouts*

.
Let’s look at lingerie.  I’m such a brand junkie, always showing you the Gok Wan.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but there’s more to Simply Yours than just Gok!  For instance they sell bras from sizes 30A to 50 JJ!  If you’ve got boobs, they’ve got bras!  They also have fantastic bra fit advice & videos.  Most women wear the wrong bra – are you one of them?

.

Dreamgirl Babydoll, 30.40

Dreamgirl Babydoll, 30.40

You’re sure to spend your money wisely if you spend it on Dreamgirl’s Babydoll & matching thong.  That’s some hot stuff right there.

The baby doll is actually a mesh underwired halter with front lace-up and ruffle detailing; I love that most of the lingerie and shapewear and swimwear pieces on Simply Yours are underwire.

Even those of us who are not plus-size, but are…amply endowed *cough* would like for our bust line to be front and center, please and thank you.  I’m just saying.

Let’s talk Gok Wan.  Why? Because we like him. With 20% off (Code KLUY4), I’m eyeing some shapewear.  This winter was not kind to your blogger, and she could use some, er, shaping.  Celebrities’ dirty little secret is that they wear this sort of thing all the time. And then get photoshopped.  But shapewear!

I don’t think I’ve shown you Gok Wan’s Sassy Slip.  It’s sassy!  It’s also gorgeous.  What you’re getting is a mid-thigh length full shaping slip, with attached underwire bra, and internal suspenders which attach to stockings (not included).

Gok Wan's Sassy Slip, 44/$63.67

Gok Wan's Sassy Slip, £44/$63.67

I want the Passion color (shown) even though it would show under most of my spring summer dresses.  I don’t care.

The size range for Sassy is from a 30-32 C -G, 34-40G, 42-44 A-E and 46A-C (If you don’t see your size, it’s possible they’re out of it.  Call and ask.)

.

Frill Front Jersey Top, 20/$28.97
Frill Front Jersey Top, 20/$28.97

Don’t hesitate when you see Simply Be’s Frill Front Top.  Put it in your cart and use code KLUY4 for 25% off.

What’s great about pieces like this that are casual with special detail is that they can be dressed up – under a suit – or down, with a pair of jeans.

If you’re going to spend money on t-shirts, make it shirts like this that have interest and thought behind them.  I wish they came in more colors than black and cream, but you can’t go wrong with either of those.

.
We’re at the end my little pr0n pistachios. The “Oh, By the Way” Gods have insisted I let you know

  1. The sales code, KLUY4, is good through April 15,
  2. They don’t deliver to the U.S. yet, just the U.K. and Europe.  If you’re interested in buying and live in the U.S email me: shoppingpr0n@gmail.com, and I’ll see if I can help you.
  3. There is no pay for play on Shopping Pr0n.  You people must be buying from there, because Charlotte keeps sending us things.  Keep up the good work!

I’ve got one more super post I’m working on: how to dress for your body type, which will be the first in a series.  The first one will be on pear shapes and I hope to have it finished tonight or tomorrow.  Stay tuned!

Until then, 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 Wide Bangles

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. )
