Styles for Less: Halloween Only Free Shipping on orders over $30

Styles for Less has amazing discount fashions in sizes up to 3X and 24. Today only you can enjoy their October 31: 1 Day Only Free Shipping Special at there as well.

Last time I wrote about their stores I thought many items were out of stock. I have since learned how to make the sizes in stock appear there. That info is at the end of this short post!

Under $20 Jackets, In Stock

This jacket is just $14 and in stock in its cognac color in size 1X and in its chocolate color in 2X!

This one is just $19, in stock in sizes 1X and 3X in cognac and olive / drab colors!

A Top and Jeans for $18 and $23

Re: The Jeans, use the text link at the end of this post to get a second pair of jeans for just $10 too!

This top, (If you are a mom, if might recognize this shirt’s line), is available in sizes 1X and 2X!

These Jeans are available in sizes 16 to 24 in dark denim, 16 to 20 in wine / cran and 14, 16, 18. 20 and 24 in olive / drab colors.

They have many more jeans, tops, blouses, sweaters, leggings and more, for less!

How to Shop Styles for Less

If you use this Buy pair of jeans,get 1 for $10 at link, and I am putting one of these in the column to your right, you will find the Plus Size department on the right side of their horizontal menu.

Once you click on Plus Size, you will find you can sort by Size, Price and another feature.
For an example:
Say you like this $10 basic tunic.

Once you click on its picture there, (not here, in this post, these are just pictures), you will find its page with the colors it comes in.
As I write this, if I click on the black color, sizes 1X and 2X come up.
If I click on the burgundy color, size 3X comes up.

It turns out to be that simple!
Enjoy &
Happy Halloween!

This Fall’s New & / or Highly Rated Extra Wide Footwear

Recently a friend of mine said: Really, Extra wide width shoes that do not look like slippers or sneakers? I said YES, even HEELS.

This post of new styles, (mostly too new for reviews), is for her, size 11, I believe, extra wide: Using Zappos left column search option for this size and width, 772 styles show today! These styles are from the 1st pages of this search.

Ankle Booties Cute & Sleek

These faux leather, boots are from Trotters. They are water resistant, come in 3 other colors / textures. Trotters - Blast III (Black Waxy Faux Leather) - Footwear
Trotters has a lower cut, and higher cut boots of the same ilk that came up in this search too!

These Walking Cradles sleek soft leather booties also come in black, have 2 inch heels and give you a foot bed with extra cushioning! Walking Cradles - Circle 2 (Black Antique Soft Leather) - Footwear
You will also find a posh leather, (with leather inner liner!), loafer from Walking Cradles in this search.

These chic, durable leather booties are not that new. They have a near timeless style and get excellent reviews like so many styles by David Tate. David Tate - Vera (Black Leather) - Footwear

You will find many great David Tate shoes and boots that come in wide widths at Zappos. They seem to offer great quality and style in widths up to extra wide, CONSISTENTLY!

These sleek leather, with leather lining, booties are from Rose Petals. They also make highly rated shoes in sizes up to extra wide!

 Rose Petals - Zevon (Black Nappa) - Footwear
Rose Petals and Walking Cradles are a bit pricey but likely well worth it.


These Rose Petals premium leather boots have a 14 inch circumference and breathable fabric lining. Rose Petals - Curly (Extra Wide Shaft) (Black New Softy) - Footwear

This is just a picture of Bella Vita’s Candice II in its tan color, so you can see its detail better. This style also comes in black.

Bella Vita has many classic and trendy wide and extra wide footwear styles that get excellent ratings from women who wear them!

Heels in Extra Wide

Beyond the boot part at the top this blog’s WW shoe page is currently featuring Belle Vita heeled footwear… This is Bella Vita’s Walden shoe, which also comes in taupe and black!
 Bella-Vita - Walden (Oxblood Kidsuede/Black) - Footwear
Their footwear styles are nicely priced too! J. Renee’s Dayna’s glimmering fabric evening pumps also come in gold, black, pewter and silver colors! J. Renee - Dayna (Gold Glimmer Fabric) - Footwear
This style gets great reviews! David Tate’s Beverly evening pumps come in black, silver and navy satin and get excellent reviews! David Tate - Beverly (Silver Satin) - Footwear
Some Brands
Trotters, Walking Cradles, Naturalizer, Annie, David Tate and other brands I am not thinking of at the moment, consistently get great to excellent ratings from women who wear wide width shoes and boots.

Conspicuously absent from this post, yet prevalent in the search it is based on: Fitzwell. You will always find their shoes in any search of wide width shoes and boots at Zappos.

Over the years I have found they either get very mixed, or consistently not so good reviews from women who need wide width footwear.

If I find a style by them that get consistently good to excellent reviews I will post it.
As for the many with no reviews…who knows…

Full Figure D to K Cup Baby Dolls

Reading Lingerie Briefs’ Meet Lola, Marcie and Betty Bodacious Baby Dolls post brightened my day a bit! When I last checked, thrilled as I was to find baby doll lingerie in the 30 – 40D to G range, and up to H cup styles, by Elomi. I still wanted larger cup sized style. Which, as it turns out are available by Cleo by Panache and Curvy Kate. Thanks to Lingerie Briefs, whose header tells us ‘Lingerie is the Poetry in a Woman’s Wardrobe’ and I like that too! Here is a look at, 1st sale styles, then larger cup styles!

Parfait by Affinitas Under $50 Baby Dolls

For a nice view of the rich colors of lingerie by Parfait, check out: Invest in Your Chest’s Affinitas and Parfait Press Event!

Click on their baby dolls below to find them on sale and available in most sizes 30 – 40D to G, in white, purple and black for $48.75, and some for $20, at Her Room! This one gets excellent reviews!

& this one gets great reviews and is $20 in its purple color!

At this 11/2014 Update these are no longer available at Bare Necessities. They came in sizes: 30E to FF, 32D to FF, 34DD, 36FF and G, 38E and 40DD to FF. If you use this New with Tags Angelina Underwire Baby Doll link currently they are available in sizes 30D and 34FF.
Bare Necessities and Her Room have plenty of other lingerie styles by Affinitas too!

Up to H cup Baby Dolls

In a rare instance of late, Bare Necessities has Elomi’s Betty Baby Dolls for less than Figleaves, but only in the 36 to 42F to GG size range, (for $4 less).

Click on this baby doll’s picture, based on their Betty Plunge bras, to find it for $96 in sizes 34GG and H and 36 to 40EE to H at Figleaves!

 Betty Plunge Babydoll 
Bare Necessities also has Elomi’s Maggie baby dolls, on sale! Those have very limited sizes for $60, up to 36 + 40FF, 38GG and 42G.

Cleo by Panache & Curvy Kate for up to J + K Cup Baby Dolls

Curvy Kate baby dolls  come in sizes up to 38K! 
Click on this style below to find it for $61 in the 28D – H, 30 – 38DD to K size range at Figleaves! 
Lola Babydoll 
While many of the sizes in the above style were ‘temporarily out of stock’ yesterday, today a lot of those are now just low stock. If you like this style, I would act fast, as it seems to come and go from stock quickly!

Cleo by Panache’s Marcie baby dolls are available in sizes 28 – 38D to J for $70 at Figleaves. These are low stock in many sizes too…

 Marcie Babydoll
These Baby Dolls at eBay stores so far…
While I would like to try them now that they come in, near enough, my size, I know they are too big for my budget at the moment. Then it occurred to me to do what I always do:

11/2014 Update:

Currently these links below, and any way I can think of to search eBay stores for underwire baby dolls by any brand is not working.

I did, down among the many pages of Parfait by Affinitas bras search find the one Angelina baby doll, down to 2 sizes and near full price searching New with Tags, at Buy it Now Prices Parfait by Affinitas Bras link at eBay stores. There are other, actually full price baby dolls by Affinitas among the current 2753 bras by them, nicely priced, at this search.

Perhaps it is too early on some styles but this is what I found, new with tags, at buy it now prices at eBay stores, so far:

11/2014: The following 4 baby doll links by these 4 brands are left here as a curiosity to see if any of them have the previous nicely priced selections I wrote about here originally, in the months to come.  If not, I will remove them.

Except they do have some styles and colors I am not seeing at stores…

So that is all for now.

I am hoping / looking forward to trying these styles when I can!
