Ooooh! I got bargains!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
"Business casual" is the usual dress code, where I work. Unfortunately, most of my coworkers have NO idea of what this means. Holey jeans, unlaced high-top sneakers and pants big enough to raise a family in are the most common sights. As a rule, I wear khakis, dress pants, skirts and nice tops. Since it can get a bit chilly, I frequently wear a blazer. I have decided to buck the trend toward sloppiness and have been shopping for nicer work clothes.

Last week, I went to Old Pueblo Traders, for a navy blue blazer. While there, I checked out their sale racks. I am now the proud owner of a gorgeous purple suit ($30) and a beautiful appliqued red suit ($9.99). These were both $100+ suits. Can I find a bargain, or what?

OPT is primarily a mail-order business but, they have a couple of stores, here. They are one of the few places that carry size 14+ clothes that don't look like something that Ringling Brothers could put on a show in. Some time back, I posted the link, to their Web catalog, for those who were looking for pretty full-figure bras. I'll have to look for it again. Right now, they are having a big sale. All dresses are $9.99 to $39.99 and this is not cheap, tacky stuff!

They also have wonderful shoes and boots. I was particularly attacted to a pair of lilac beaded and sequined sneakers. Maybe, next payday!

Wow, great bargains Cindy! I'll have to take a look at their mail order service. I agree with you about plus sizes....some stores apparently think that if you are above a size 12 you can't possibly wear anything but lounge wear, and actual business clothes? Forget it!

Their evening wear and faux fur coats are gorgeous, too. I'm trying to convince myself that I don't need an ankle-length burgundy velvet coat. It is SO pretty, though!

Another mail order clothing site with clothes higher then 12+. Only for residents of the US though.
