Fashionable Hoodies for Warmth and Great Style

Hoodies are a fashion statement that crosses many seasons.  I have found some beauties for you!

For in-expensive but very trendy and hip clothing Pizzazz Plus Fashions is the place for you!

Plus sized clothing doesn’t have to be unflattering or only black. I have searched for a wide variety of styles that will be a delight for you to wear. Colorful and well styled, these items are great in your own personal wardrobe.  Playful and fun, or stylish and more serious in look, hoodies can be worn in almost any situation.


Hoodies are no longer the realm of the very young. They are a beautiful addition to anyone's wardrobe.

In spring and fall a hoodie added to whatever else you are wearing, will extend the season. Until we get into the deep part of the winter months, hoodies are a bonus.

Transitional Pieces for your Wardrobe

Even when winter finally arrives (and I'm not hoping for it anytime soon) a hoodie will keep you warm wherever you are going. When you are out doing your grocery shopping, open up your winter coat and stay warm with your hoodie underneath. No sense in getting a chill during the coldest months of the year.

Anyone who lives in the northern parts will understand the benefits of choosing layers of clothing to keep you nice and warm. If it becomes too warm, undo one layer of clothing. If it's not that warm, leave your layers intact!

Preventing colds and flu during the winter!

Layering your clothing allows you options that can make all the difference in the world to your comfort.  When the air gets trapped between the layers, it warms you up and keeps you warm.  If it's too warm, just open up a layer and let the warm air be replaced with cooler air around you.  It's simple and it works quite well.  Having a hoodie on will keep you from getting those chills when a door is opened.  I bet you can even beat getting a cold this winter, by being prepared.  Staying warm and washing your hands often will be the first step in keeping you healthy all through the winter months.

The Best, Most Awesome and Fashionable Winter Boots

Are you looking for some Awesome, Fashionable and Warm boots for your wintertime needs?


Your search has just landed you at a great place where boots and shoes are just a little bit better for us Plus Sized Ladies. - Women's Wide Calf Boots

When you are Plus Sized, everything you require to fit, is bigger. That includes shoes and especially boots.  If you are like me, I know that you have had your moments of absolute frustration!  You see a beautiful pair of boots. You are hoping against hope that these will fit you.   Then comes the time when you try them on!  Now you know that the boot does not come anywhere near to fitting  your calf.  Oh, the disappointment and sheer sadness that you cannot buy those boots.

For years ladies who have a little extra on their calves, have been relegated to purchasing little ankle high boots!  At least your feet are warm, right?  The problem of a bigger calf does not have to be addressed.  That may not be a problem if you live in a city where the sidewalks and driveways are regularly plowed and there is no snow build up.  But, what happens if you are in the outskirts of town,and the snow is deeper than 2 or 3 inches?

Deeper snow levels = uncomfortable walking!

Snow depths of more than two inches makes walking in ankle boots very uncomfortable.  There is no way that you are not going to end up with snow getting inside your boot!  Then your feet get wet (cause they are warm) and your boots are sopping inside and out.   Heaven help you if you have a dog that needs walking a couple of times a day!

I’m here to tell you the Good News.

At Wide Widths, you tell them how wide your calf is and they make you boots that will fit!  You can get boots to fit the widest of calves, so that  a nice tall boot fits you like it was made for you, because it has been!



wide calf boots, plus size boots, boots that fit wide calves

Especially for you, Wide Width Boots that Fit!



These are just two of the styles that are available. There is a variety of colors and styles just for you!

Don’t wait for the snow to start falling,  order your boots now so that when the snow is on the ground you are smiling and enjoying your time outdoors. - Women's Wide Calf Boots

Don’t Worry, Be Happy Halloween is at the End of the Month

Don’t Worry, Be Happy there’s still plenty of time to get your Halloween attire.  You will be the bell of the ball in any Costume you wear!


The Question is Who will you Be?

Will you be the Ring Leader and show the whole crowd just what you are made of?

Any two or three of these items will make a fabulous Halloween Costume. The beauty of these pieces is that you can make them as sexy or as feminine as you want them to be. It all depends on what you have in mind.

Add a short flouncy skirt and you will be turning heads for sure. Add a longer bustle type skirt and you become a little more demure.

But you are not limited to those two choices. There are several ways that you can dress up these items or add some accessories to give different looks to the whole outfit.

Madam Antoinette’s wig would be perfect with an all Black creation of skirt, Corset and some lacy fans. Makeup in the whiter shades of pale will finish off your costume and a pretty fan or mask would just put your creation over the top.

Add Steampunk glasses and a satin top hat for another look altogether. All are available right here from Hips and Curves.

Let your imagination soar, or check out the LOOKBOOK here to see all the possible costumes you can come up with.

For some help with the make up you can use this video tutorial on how to achieve the Corpse Bride look and then modify it for your pleasure.

I guarantee you will have a great time in any of the ideas found here. And what’s even nicer is that you can use them all again for CosPlay or next year’s party festivities.

Super Soft Comfortable Sleepwear Made for Your Needs

Have you noticed?  The nights are getting cooler!  It’s time for some new Super Soft and Comfortable Sleepwear.

If you Love Pajamas, there are lots to choose from:

Some are styled so that even on the coolest nights you will still be warm as toast. Others are made for those women who are suffering from night heat and hot flashes. They will leave arms or legs bare, so that even during the winter months you can be comfortable. There is something to be said for both of these types of Pajamas.

For the cooler nights, it’s not just Pajamas that women want, they also like Night Shirts, and Shortie sets.  Hot Flashes are not fun and having pajamas that take that into account works well for many women.


For those who really don’t like pajamas, but would rather wear a night shirt, then that’s there for you too. What makes these PJ’s different is the fabrics that they are made from. Naturally warm flannels make you feel toasty warm inside and out. Winter months are the ones where if you need the extra warmth, these PJ’s would be the ones to provide it. If you are just “cool” all the time and like it that way, your light summer Jammies will do fine. What might change is the amount of blankets you keep near the bed.  You know you still like to be warm and as snug as a bug in a rug.

I personally love to have new pajamas at least a couple of times a year. There is just something so warm and fuzzy about getting PJ’s for a gift. For years, I would send my grandchildren PJ’s for Christmas. They would get one present early and it would always be their Christmas PJ’s. In the morning they all were so cute in their winter attire. You can start a new trend in your family, make sure everyone has matching PJ’s for Christmas morning fun. I bet you everyone will enjoy this new tradition.

Outstanding Fashion Pieces for your Comfort and Wearablility

fashion pieces, blouses, must haves

Versatility, wearability and beauty should go hand in hand when you are picking out items for your wardrobe.

Fashion pieces that are comfortable and look nice, can multiply your choices.

Whether you are a working woman with lots on the go, or whether you work from home, smart fashionable blouses are a “must have” in your closet.

From bright and bold prints to solids and stripes, blouses take on all of these. Depending on your “role”, a good blouse is  the start of an outfit and changing up that one item can change the whole look. Blouses come in several different styles. Button up the fronts are like a Classic shirt.  Depending on the fabric, they can be casual or dressy.

If the blouse has no collar, it can be “v” necked or “u” necked and high or lower cut. Each one is unique and you can choose the one that you like the best. Some of the lower cut blouses look really nice with some accent jewelry. It all depends on you and what you have to work with. beads are always a nice addition to an outfit and makes you look really well put together.

Blouses are such versatile clothing items, that I personally don’t think you can have too many.

I like to have a variety of colors, prints and solids. I also like to have a variety of styles. Some will have the button fronts.  Others will either zip up the back or go over your head. All of them will have a place in the grand scheme of dressing for success and for fun.

With 8 different blouses and 2 or three different bottoms, either skirts or slacks, you can have a wardrobe that will take you right through the month, without wearing the same combination twice. Isn’t that Great?

Outstanding Cardigans To Make Autumn and You Beautiful

One of the most beautiful times of the year is almost here! Autumn and the weather is crisp and cool. Evenings just require a Light Cardigan to make the season and you outstandingly beautiful.

Cooler Evenings are a sure sign that it’s Autumn

Daytime and the sunshine is still warm enough that you will be comfortable.  But evening comes on rather suddenly now, and once that sun has dropped in the sky, so does the temperature.  It’s then that you will appreciate a nice cardigan to keep you toasty warm. Don’t give up on summer altogether, but be prepared for those cooler evenings.

Each of these cardigans have been picked with you in mind.

It’s not winter yet, so a heavy sweater is not necessary.  September and October though are noticeably cooler in the evenings.  Summer has definitely made it’s exit.  The daylight hours are shorter and evening seems to fall almost within minutes of the sun dropping in the sky.  Even now with air-conditioning in the offices, it is really nice to have a light sweater just to get the chill off of your shoulders.

I love sweaters even in the summer months at night.

Depending on where you live, a light summer/autumn sweater is a wonderful boost to your wardrobe.   These can be worn with dressy clothes and doubles as stand-by with your jeans on the weekend. They are very versatile and easy to wear.


Does your wardrobe need a boost?

Try adding any one of these cardigans and I’m sure you will find a whole new array of outfits to match your lifestyle.

I’ve found 13 different costumes, each one with a theme of it’s own. Hopefully this will get you thinking about your own personal choices for your Halloween costume. Let’s start here:

The Queen of Hearts is amazing in the detail. I love the whole feel of this costume it's a winner in my books. Our Heavenly Angel doesn't fall too short either. This costume will make you shine like the stars. Add some glitter and you will shine, no doubt.
The Flapper, is a great idea for a costume as well, who doesn't like the glitter and fringe of the roaring 20's.
Our Native American costume is another comfortable and easy to wear costume. Accurate in details too. You'll be a Historical hit in this costume.

Pirates and scally-wags are sure to be a part of the party, and so will this Pirate's Vixen costume.
Another Disco Diva outfit to make your Halloween costume a success. Dance the night away!
Costumes are usually from ancient periods of time, so find your Roman goddess in the is lovely Empress outfit.
Moving into more modern times, but still historical, we get into the hippie movement. No Halloween party would be complete without at least one perfectly groovy dress.
Wilma from the Flintstones and the Wizard of Oz can never be too far away for Halloween. Both of these bring back memories for everyone. What a great costume.
Just to finish off this list is Elvira Mistress of the Dark. So wickedly lovely, she will be a hit at the party.
