Any really funky 'plus size' stores?

on Feb 25, 2008 @ 05:05 pm

I live in Ottawa and I love to dress well - funky clothes, shoes and accessories. I'm finding it hard to find nice, stylish plus size clothing...sure, I shop at all the regulars, Addition-elle, Laura, Reitmans and The Bay, but so does everyone else.
I need something different, original...even designer (if that exists).
Any suggestions/ideas would be appreciated!

Everyone has their own definition of "funky" but perhaps Torrid would have some things you'd like? Or DEB Fashion perhaps? I don't know if you have those in Canada though. DEB doesn't have an online store (not the last time I checked anyway, maybe that's changed) but you can buy from Torrid online. They always have lots of nice stuff on clearance, and have sales pretty frequently too.

I just came across a blog from one of our members, Fabulously Broke in the City. She recommends Gutsy Dame. Check out her blog for more info:

Thanks for the info on Torrid - it lokks like a great store but, unfortunetly the closert one in 5 hours away in Albany NY...
Ottawa is above Ogdensburg NY (just about and hour away) and Syracuse NY (about 3.5 hours). I love shopping in the States, but the traveling gets a little pricey.
Thanks again,
