Plus size leather blazer

I like the look of this leather blazer. I'm specifically looking for a jacket I can wear indoors as a pseudo-suit jacket in my business casual workplace. Can you suggest a leather blazer, similar to this one, or at least NOT moto or mixed media style? I am in the U.S. Size-wise, I'm right on the edge between 1x and XXL, or between a straight 16 and an 18W. [more inside]

Blouses I can wear untucked with suits. Difficulty level: plus size.

I work in an office where the dress code is basically business formal I have been wearing dress + blazer mostly, but would like to wear some pantsuits now that it's getting colder. Problem is blouses tucked in to pants do NOT look good on me. Any advice out there on tops that would be appropriate and look good not tucked in with suits? [more inside]

Help me find cute, affordable plus-size clothes

Between a recent fire at my apartment and a mix-up with the cleaning crew, all of my clothes are now gone except a few things I picked up at Target with a giftcard from a friend. Another friend was amazingly generous enough to send me $200 to help rebuild my wardrobe, and I am trying to figure out the most satisfying way to do so. [more inside]

Where can I buy some clothes my size, in a brick-and-mortar store where I can try them on, and if possible that's near public transportation?

Clothes for jungle hiking for a plus-size woman?

I'm headed to Malaysia in September and plan to do some hiking around the jungle there. Because of the mosquitos, leeches and other critters, I'll need to cover up even if it is very hot and humid out. Does anyone have any recommendations for lightweight long-sleeved shirts and pants for a size ~18 woman?

Need an Easter dress, plus size, short notice.

My grandparents are very elderly and chances are very good this will be at least one's last Easter. I hate dressing up, in dresses especially, but doing so always makes them absolutely delighted. So, I spent a lot of time taking measurements and stuff to order something well ahead of time from an online retailer who has been making excuses for weeks and finally said they'd refund my money because they can't get my order to me after all. Well... okay, clothes aren't my forte at the best of times, I need emergency fashion assistance. [more inside]

Help me find more skirts like my favorite! Snowflakes inside...

I own this skirt from Old Navy in black and gray, and am thinking of getting the blue striped one. I LOVE these skirts. They're uber-comfortable for work in the spring and summer! They don't wrinkle! They're not made of overly-weird fabric! The problem is, Old Navy only has the two (maybe three) colors that I like. I'd love one in, say, a nice deep red, or a dark purple, maybe some prints. The problem is, I can't find them anywhere. I wear a 3X in Old Navy's clothes, so around a US womens 26. I also can't afford to spend a ton of money. But I would like a couple more skirts to add to the summer work wardrobe! Any suggestions as to where I might find my skirt-nirvana?
