Vintage finds for February. In all sizes!

Hey everyone! I went shopping for you again. It has been over 2 years and running  TOH and I am still excited to be bringing you vintage finds.I have been getting more and more emails asking to find not just plus size clothing but vintage clothing in every size so I will be doing just that. Naturally I will cater more towards plus size clothing since it is such a hard task but slowly I will introduce smaller sizes as well. I couldn’t model for you this time for 2 reasons. First off  because of surgery a coupe weeks ago that left me weak so I wasn’t feeling up to the challenge and second off I bring you smaller sizes this voluptuous body cant squeeze into (even though i want to badly!) The dress form is a wonderful addition to the shop. I would love to get your feed back on what you prefer though.

But for now here is what I have found just in time for Valentines Day!
