I saw this plus size tweed vest and pants outfit
in person at Lane Bryant this past weekend, and it was very
cute. If I had to dress for an office environment, I would have definitely scooped it up. In fact, it's so cute that this outfit is already sold out online. If you want one, you have to march your booty down to your local store and get it there while they last.

This weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting Scarlett, a plus size boutique in Charlotte, NC. I was greeted warmly by the owner and creator of the boutique, Todd Albaum. Immediately, he made a point of finding out what I was looking for and whisking me around the boutique, expertly pulling garments to suit me. I ended up trying on some fantastic clothes, none of which I had seen at any of the local department stores. Designer labels I spotted included Donna Ricco, Tadashi, Linda Lundstrom, and James Clifford. The service was wonderful, and I bought an adorable new dress that I couldn't find anywhere else. I'll definitely be back!

Here at Plus Size This, I like to focus on plus size fashion, but occasionally I feel the desire to mention other things that might be of interest. I was happy to catch this little tidbit while I was on Athleta.com looking for some cool workout clothes to write about. On their web-zine, Athleta Chi, they asked former professional athlete Colleen Cannon the question: 'Do you have any secrets or advice for a healthy diet or eating plan to stay in shape?' She answered: 'I think the best diet is self-acceptance and learning to love and appreciate your body instead of always trying to form it into a magazine look alike.' That made my day. Here's a link to that article.
