Plus Size Vintage Dresses For Summer!

DAHLINGS -

The weather is warm, the Fourth of July roses on my terrace are blooming, and my assistant is spending the time she should be working staring out the window, a single tear running down her cheek. All infallible signs of Spring (and a sign that my assistant needs to be screamed at--excuse me for une minute, s’il vous plaĆ®t).

YOU! STOP SNIVELING AND GET BACK TO WORK! DO YOU THINK I DICTATE THIS BLOG-THING FOR THE SHEER DELIGHT OF IT? THIS IS A BUSINESS, YOU IDIOTIC LUMPKIN! NOW GO STEAM MY WISPS OF CHIFFON BEFORE I THROW THIS BOTTLE OF JOY AT YOU!!!

Ahem. As if she were worth the price of a bottle of Joy parfum.

Where was I? Ah, yes, Spring! And Spring leads to Summer, as we all know--at least most of us do, I'm not so sure about some people. My gift to you, mon cher readers, is a bouquet of lovely dresses in seasonal fabrics. Such as this Mint Condition silk beauty from the 1940s, with a novelty print of rose corsages! Size XL:

For the lady who prefers a more straightforward approach, this 1950s beige and tan poplin dress with full skirt, XL:

And for those steamy nights when a woman needs something sheer and floaty to lounge and sleep in, this floral nightgown from the venerable Christian Dior is just the ticket!

I also have a selection of vintage and contemporary warm-weather wear at my (ugh) Ebay store, should you feel like slumming.

I apologize to those of you who have been waiting with bated breath for me to give you my opinions on "Sex & The City"--they will be forthcoming soon!

Ciao,
Elisa & Bucky the Wonderdog
