Hey curvy girls all over the world,
If you love vintage dresses, your favorite show is Mad Men, or your favorite style is 1950's rockabilly then you definitely need to check out curvy girl friendly site Stop Staring. SC was introduced to Stop Staring via an email from the company. Once I clicked the link to their site I started getting excited about all the fabulous vintage style dresses they offered.
Stop Staring is an LA Based company with vintage dresses designed by Alicia Estrada. The dresses are made of quality fabrics and are made in the USA. Celebrities like Toccara Jones to Kim Kardashian have been spotted in a Stop Staring dress. The company boasts versatile dresses that can take you from day to night. These are not the kind of dresses that hide your curves, they do the exact opposite.
They offer a myriad number of cocktail dresses, prom dresses, and rockabilly dresses. In a ddition to dresses, they do offer a few separates as well. You will be happy to know that they go up to a size 3X which is more like a size 18, but the dresses are made with benagaline stretch fabric. We love that their site even has a plus size link that shows you which dresses are best for the plus size body type. The company has been around for 10 years and doesn't plan on stopping any time soon.
SC had the chance to do a mini interview with the designer Alicia Estrada. Check out what she had to say and be sure to visit their site at http://www.stopstaringclothing.com/ and tell SC hat you think.
Now read my mini inerview with Alicia Estrada the designer:
SS:I really love sewing, and was making my wardrobe in college. I got the attention of a boutique on melrose ave in Hollywood. Dozens of stores followed, thus stop staring! was born. It was so much fun, and the dresses caught on like wildfire!
SC: How did Stop Staring come about?
SC: Why do you think people love vintage dresses so much? SS:Stop Staring! Dresses are vintage inspired with a modern touch, women love this timeless and classic look. Our dresses enhance all shapes and sizes, and men love this sexy yet classic look. Besides, I think most women just drool over the dresses in those classic black and white movies!
What do you think separates your site from other vintage dresses sites? SS: Well, first off, we have been in business for over 13 years, our experience and excellent fit is unmatched. People consider us the pioneers for retro inspired dresses. Plus, we have hundreds of styles to choose from, and available up to size 18.
I've seen a number of celebrties wearing your dresses who was your favorite?SS: My favorite celeb, hmmmm? I have lots...right now I'm loving Kristin baurer, she just wore our dress on the True Blood posters! Also Jillian Barberie, she's been wearing them all over Fox 11. We love seeing Paris in our dresses, she always looks great.
What has been your best selling dress?SS: Our red gathered Ava dress, it is so sexy, and the cut fits everyone! But, it also helps that so many celebs have worn it, like Kim Kardashian , and miss Mexico just wore it recently. Lately our bombshell dress is flying, Olivia Munn just wore it!
What materials are the dresses made of to make them hug the body so well?SS: Of course we use stretch fabrics, like poplin stretch, and bengaline, women love this fabric! It really sucks you in, but allows you to breath! Stop Staring is notorious for giving us a beautiful style, while allowing comfort!
What plus size celebrity would you like to see wearing your a Stop Staring dress? SS: Kirsty Allie just ordered a few, so I can't wait to see her wear them!
This is the fab dress they sent me. I can't wait to wear it.
Please note: Although I received a dress from this company it did not in any way influence my write up. The goal of Stylish Curves is to show a variety of brands that do cater to plus size curvy women whether you are size 14 or 26.
