As someone who has been shopping in the plus size section for as long as I can remember (save for the 2 months at the end of fat camp that I could squeeze into the largest size at New York & Co), I can say it's a rare thing to have an en vogue designer address the plus market. Tracy Reese has done just that, and not just addressed it in a “meh, I guess we'll accommodate you but not promote it” kind of way (*cough* Michael Kors), but in a “YES I WANT TO LEARN AND GET EXCITED ABOUT IT” kind of way. She partnered with Gwynnie Bee for expertise on designing for the plus woman. The result will be more designs to come from her in plus, but also a Plenty by Tracy Reese collection in extended sizes at Gwynnie Bee.

I wore this skirt twice in the past 5 days, so needless to say I love it. It's a great textured fabric and the applique detail is so unique. I'll have another Plenty by Tracy Reese look coming soon – you can peek it on Instagram!
