Looking for an affordable, sexy evening dress can sometimes be a daunting task no matter what size you are especially one that can be worn more than once! Well, Bonmarche Plus Size Clothing has a ton that will make you feel as good as you look with an extensive selection of contemporary apparel and accessories for women ranging from sizes 12-24. What really caught my eye was Bonmache’s selection of sexy, sleek and classic dresses for the plus size woman. Not only were they surprisingly affordable (leaving you plenty to snatch up a fab pair of shoes or accessories) but they truly flatter the curvy shape. Bonmarché is UK’s largest value retailer selling affordable quality womenswear in a wide range of sizes (12-24). Ranges include casual and formal separates, outerwear, swimwear, lingerie nightwear and accessories, all designed with the real feminine figure in mind. In 2007, it launched a collection designed in collaboration with David Emanuel, the designer famous for the co-design of Lady Diana Spencer’s wedding dress in 1981. This collection has a slightly higher price point than the main Bonmarché range but still represents very good value for money. Check out some of my fave’s below:
David Emanuel Panelled Satin Dress
David Emmanuel Mesh Dress
David Emmanuel Printed Jersey Dress

There has been a lot of excitement and stir regarding Princess-to-be, Kate Middleton, and her wedding dress for her upcoming wedding to Prince William. Will she go for the fairy tale ball gown look, as Princess Diana did? Or will she stay modern with ruffles and saches? It could go either way, but my guess is that she’s sticking to her personal style. Kate tends to dress conservatively, with a flare of sexiness. There’s been word that she may choose Vera Wang. the queen of bridal and elegant dresses, to design her wedding gown. And here we have the same designer(for less!) with her line for Priscilla of Boston. Known for their designer wedding dresses, Priscilla of Boston also carries gorgeous gowns similar to the one Kate here has on. Paired with matching champagne pumps and black ruffle clutch, this style emulates Kate’s simple yet chic style. What are your thoughts?
Vera Wang for Priscilla of Boston Wedding Dress – $2990
Banana Republic Earrings - $24.99
DSW Ruffle Clutch – $29.95
Badgley Mishka Heels - $200

Love, love, love it! What do you think of the collection?
Someone needs to tell Vanessa that a cell phone is best used for phone calls, not naked pictures for Zach! Anyway, while most are concentrating on her racy photos, I prefer to highlight Vanessa’s other attributes; namely her style. Get Vanessa’s look for less (compare Vanessa’s $300 shoes to Chinese Laundry’s “Bounty” for only $129!).
Lace Trim Crinkled Dress – $60 at Yesstyle.com
Skinny Braid Belt – $24.50 at AE.com
Chinese Laundry Bounty – $129 at ChineseLaundry.com
