Who says no to a share of $9 billion? | Business insider published an article this week on retailers choosing to stay out of the $9 billion plus-size game. Although there are still so many jumping on board, my question still remains, why would we want to purchase close from retailers that don’t really care about our size and fit? If they don’t care now, just imagine how unthoughtful their plus-size line would be when it does exist. Read more from Business Insider

The Consignment Maven

Chronicling Change and Telling the Story

Over the last year my life has been moving in an interesting direction. It’s as if someone put all of my thoughts on what I knew about myself, my ambition, my gifts, my relationship, my life into a snow globe and shook them all up then told make sense of the mess.
