Spotlight on JD Williams

One of the main problems with being a blogger based outside London is that you sometimes get invited to fabulous events that you just can@t attend. Such was the case last year when I received an invite to a special dinner with Lorraine Kelly from JD Williams. Lorraine was launching a fabulous collection with the online catalogue brand, but because of how late I would be arriving back to the Midlands, it was an invite I had to decline.

Lorraine’s collection is just part of the great offering from JD Williams, a company that has a range that goes from sizes 12 – 32. JD Williams has tackled all those issues that women think about when buying clothing, so they do stock dresses with sleeves and skirts and dresses which are not pelmet length, but have knee length, midi and maxi lengths giving the choice to make your wardrobe both versatile and divergent. The brand also has a range of collections from the likes of Joanna Hope, Joe Browns, Together and Ava by Mark Heyes, as well as a dedicated holiday shop for all your beachy needs, and a selection dedicated to beautiful looks for the Mother of the Bride. Clearly, if you think of an occasion, or a particular piece of clothing that your wardrobe is lacking, you can probably find it, no problem, at JD Williams.

Here are some of my current favourite pieces from the collections. Let me know if there is anything that catches your eye, and whether you have ordered from the brand before.

The Top Two Plus-Size Online Fashion Catalogues for Women

So, you’ve found the perfect dress for an upcoming event, but guess what? The shop doesn’t have your size. If you’ve ever found yourself in this situation, you know how frustrating it can be.
Thankfully, there is an alternative solution. Online retailers and catalogue companies provide women with more choice when it comes to clothing sizes, especially when compared to the UK high street.
Here are the Top 2 plus size online fashion catalogues for women.

1. Marisota

Marisota is a catalogue company that specialises in clothing for plus-sized women, including formal wear, dresses, shoes, hats, and accessories. There are a number of different products available, and the company is renowned for the customer service that it provides.
By opening a credit account with the company, you will be able to pay for any items you purchase in installments – beneficial when trying to budget more effectively and control your finances. Here you will find some of the world’s biggest fashion brands, with clothing available in sizes that you wouldn’t normally find on the UK high street.
New customers can take advantage of a 20% discount on their first order, and there are a number of promotions throughout the year, including up to 60% off selected brands.
