The prints and colors are very cool and lovely. Big prints ares something I like most. Ginger & Smart had a beautiful collection of diffusion prints called Akin which is very beautiful and adorable.

And the "City Chic Pretty Garden dress" is no longer on One Stop Plus' website. Why are you linking to clothes that aren't available?

The print of that Lane Bryant dress is HIDEOUS. Seriously, no company tries harder to make plus-sized women look bad than Lane Bryant. Why so many tacky prints?
