Pr0n Plus: Almost March Edition

45 Pounds at Simply Yours

£45 at Simply Yours

Welcome back pr0n stars; if you’re new to Shopping Pr0n, welcome!  This is Pr0n Plus, my weekly blog post on plus size fashion.  Today is a very exciting edition for two reasons: 1) I have my voice back.  Wheeee!  I haven’t been able to talk since a week ago last Saturday, and I love to talk; 2) Gok Wan! Gok Wan! Gok Wan! Our favorite plus size lingerie/shapewear designer from the UK (think Carson Kressley) has new items! Yippee!

.

I’ll start with one of the new Gok Wan items, just to tease you a little.  To my right is the new black Sex Kitten Corset (there’s also a mini).  Me-ow!  Who wouldn’t want shapewear that’s going to make you feel this good?

It’s perfect for a strapless dress, or under anything where you’d prefer bra straps not show.  Sex Kitten is made out of poly/cotton with stretch, a pink contrast lining and a pink ribbon closure.  Look at the back! Oh, and it comes in sizes 8-32.  Everybody gets some Gok Wan!  In USD you can get some for $65 and change.

As always, I offer Dinsquared’s Cultural Exchange Program: if you’re in the U.S. and need your GW fix, drop me a note and I’ll see what I can do.

If you feel like continuing the vintage feel of your outfit, feast your eyes on this Cute Rockabilly Dress from Stop Staring Clothing (No, really.)  I’ve adored this dress from the moment I saw it.

So check it out: this aqua blue retro dress is made out of 4-way stretch fabric, has puff sleeves, a Peter Pan collar, black buttons and trim, and real pockets!  The skirt has a slight A-line.

Stop Staring Clothing offers about 10 plus size dresses and they’re all lovely.  This is a limited edition, and they make it in sizes 1x, 2x and 3x.  Fly my little pr0n fans!  Fly like the wind!

Starting at $169

Starting at $169

Imagine this: here you are in your aqua Cute Rockabilly Dress, you open up your closet and there like Manna from Heaven are a pair of clearance Kathryn Kerrigan open toe Wendy Pumps.

It’s perfect, isn’t it?  Handcrafted leather shoes from Spain up to a Euro 46, which is a U.S. 12-12.5ish.  Make sure you pay close attention to the 3.5″ wedge heel.  Your blogger has a pair of shoes with heels of this type and they are so easy to walk in!  Red patent leather will criss-cross over your foot and back around your ankle to buckle on the side.

Pr0nistas, these were originally $315, and they’re now $169!  That’s (*calculates*) about 40% off!  I like chocolate chip cookies as a thank you, if you’re so inclined.

Moving in a different style direction, I have to show you this super comfy looking Military Style Jacket.  I found it at Simply Yours, the fashion sister to Simply Be, and it is brand spanking new.  I love new!

USD about $61, 96% cotton, 4% stretchy stuff, sizes 14-32 *gasps for air* and machine washable.  I love machine washable!

This color is actually Khaki, but you can get it in Black also.  It has epaulets on the shoulders, and buttons down the front.  Throw it over a heavy cotton sweater while it’s still cool, and over a t-shirt, jeans and sandals for a summer evening dining al fresco.

Since we’re on the same site, let’s look at two more new Gok Wan items.  This lovely lady is wearing the new Banger Booster and Super Slicker Knickers.  Try saying that ten times fast!  Not only are these items new, but the color is too! It’s called…Passion.

The Banger Booster is a multi-way bra with pink lined cups, an extra set of clear straps and “Gok Cookies” for extra…er…boosting. :D

The Super Slicker Knickers (also available in regular Slicker Knicker). ”

  • These high waist briefs are perfect for holding you in
  • With boning to the waist and powermesh to the front these provide firm tummy control
  • Flattering on your behind with ruching detail to the back”
  • Super Slicker Knickers is sizes 8-32, Banger Booster is 34A-42G.  Gust in case.

    £69 at Pink Marzipan

    Now, I’m going to stay in the UK for the next item, because it’s another dress from our friends PAS at Pink Marzipan, whom I’ve showed you items from in the Pr0n Plus Presidents’ Day Edition and in the Feb 8 Edition.

    From what I’ve seen, blue is going to be huge for spring, especially this cobalt blue.  This dress is a long sleeve silky tunic style that has front seaming and button detail.

    This dress, and this style, are just perfect for you apple shapes with great legs!  Nobody knows what’s going on under that dress, all they see are your glorious gams.

    Hourglasses and pears: sorry, this dress isn’t for you;  it just won’t do justice to your curves.  Stick with the aqua dress at the beginning of the post.


    $102 at Zappos

    $102 at Zappos

    As an apology to my U.S. readers, my last two items are from Zappos.com, and both have free shipping!  By now you’ve been sucked, banged, boosted, and wedged to death.

    “Din!” you cry.  (Because you’re my peeps and that’s how we roll.)  “Din! Show me something comfortable!

    And I heard your cry.  And I found you flannel PJs.  And I looked upon what I had done, and I saw that it was good. (Sorry, getting a God complex here.)

    Actually, what I did was look at these Bed Head flannel plus size pajamas at Zappos.  Zappos has free overnight shipping on clothing, and free regular shipping on shoes, which frequently turns out to be overnight.

    I’m showing you the aqua dots, but there are cranberry pineapples, pink birds, red pineapples, a jungle print and a partridge in a pear tree the whole shlemiel in “classic” sizes, too.  Sure they’re $102, but they were $140.  You’re saving money!

    .

    I could never finish Pr0n Plus without a pair of wide width shoes for my pal Eolivet.  This week I have for her and you, Casey,  Giraffe print flats available in wide and made by Fitzwell.  For your little feetsies they have a gel insole in the heel and a lightly cushioned foot bed.

    These run small so order one size UP.  Also these  beauties don’t have any arch support, so buy them wide and put an insole in, or make sure you have flat feet.  Only $67.50, on sale from $75.  I like Thin Mints, too.  No pressure.

    That’s all the time we have, my little pr0n peas.  Please come again.

    Wink NYC Sale Pr0n

    Hello, again my lovely pr0n friends.  Right now you’re probably thinking: another post? In the same morning?  It’s true.  And I wouldn’t ordinarily do it, but I was tipped off by my friends from SmartyPanties that WinkNYC was having a promo on its sale items.  Through 2/17, enter XTR25 at checkout and save, well, an extra 25%.

    The selection is somewhat limited, but there are some stellar deals I had to share with you.  Because a true friend always shares their pr0n.

    .

    Starting with this “Tin Soldier Jacket” from Bailey 44.  Sorry, no fabric info (maybe a worsted wool? Or a man-made knit of some kind?) but it’s a fitted, military inspired jacket with split wrists and button closure.

    It’s available in sizes X-small – large, but these are contemporary designers, so make sure to check out the size chart. 

    Hold onto your hats, because this jacket started at $275, and was marked down to $110.99.  With your 25% off code (xtra25) you too can be military chic for $83.24.  Under 100 bucks. Crazy!

    .

    .

    Also in sizes x-small thru large is this 100% ivory cashmere tunic from Qi  (No, I don’t know how to pronounce it. Sorry.)  Jewel neck, raglan sleeves, looks like its got a diamond kind of a pattern going on except for the hems, and it’ll probably hit about mid-thigh.

    Did I mention this is a 100% cashmere dress that was $326?  It’s on sale for $163.99, making your price an outrageous $122.99.  Gah!

    .

    If any of you pr0nistas out there have a killer bod, don’t wait to pick up Pencey’s “Satin Glass Dress”.  Look carefully to see the seaming detail zig-zaging its way across the dress.

    You’re getting a jewel neck, with a scoop back and short sleeves.  I would guess there’s some stretch in this, but again there’s no fabric information (thanks, Wink. :p) so I don’t know.  If you’ve got the body to pull this off in sizes 2-8, it probably won’t matter much.

    No longer $319, Satin Glass is on sale for $191.99, minus 25%, making it $143.99.  Incredible!  More than half off!

    .

    For a smaller (in more ways than one) splurge, I adore this little blue cocktail ring by Rachel Leigh.

    Treat yourself to a gold vermeil ring, with a single square crystal.  Originally $110, the ring is now $54.99, and will slide onto your pretty little pr0n hands for a mere $41.25.  Once again, better than half off.

    .

    I know that in the past I’ve expressed my admiration of Alice & Olivia (haven’t I?), and their Pleated  Trim dress is a good reason why.

    In navy blue wool with a silk lining, they’ve pleated the collar, and added a gathered fabric trim.  Remember, fashion is about details, fit and quality.  It’s the Shopping Pr0n trifecta.

    Wink sold this for $385, then put it on sale for $192.91.  With your xtra25 code, sizes x-small to medium can have this for $144.74.  (Hmm…I wonder if I could fit into an A&O medium…)

    .

    One more last unbelievable deal for you.  Now, I know I’ve imparted to you the importance of a proper trenchcoat; Gryphon’s mini-tent trenchcoat is most certainly that.

    Here we have details from Wink:  available in sizes xsmall-medium in a 64% cotton and 36% polyester twill, unique zipper closure with 5 large hinge hooks,a back pleat, hip pockets, ¾ sleeves and a pinstripe inner lining. Divine details.

    This is a coat to be admired and kept for a very long time.  It’s a three-season investment in your wardrobe.  For this quality, it’s retail price of $460 is hefty, but not outrageous.  But, it’s now on sale for $230.99, take 25% off and have a really fantastic addition to your closet for $173.45.  Under $200.  Seriously, I cannot express to you what a good deal that is.

    I’ll let you go, dearest pr0n followers.  I’m so grateful to have you all here, but you’ve got places to go and sales to snatch.  Until next time.

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