Looking Good, Feeling Gorgeous: 6 Looks from the Zappos Plus Runway

I love my job.

I know that is not something a lot of people say, and I count my blessings each and every time I say that. Here at Zappos, we get to have a lot of amazing experiences, including llamas and mini horses coming to visit, margarita machines in the café, karaoke in the lunchroom, and events where designers and brands come to educate our Customer Loyalty Team about their products.

When you call in and speak to one of the amazing "Agents of WOW" on the phone, you are speaking to someone who not only is friendly and cheerful, but has also had pretty extensive training on common foot issues, troubleshooting for fit, and specifics of certain brands and materials!

In November, our incredible Plus buyer, Anna, and her team put on the very first Zappos Plus Fashion Event here on campus.  Highlights of the day included meeting representatives from BB Dakota, Kiyonna, Rachel Pally, NYDJ, and a new brand joining the Zappos family in the spring, Mynt 1792, as well as a fashion show where we featured many of the amazing plus brands we carry. The runway featured a gorgeous gathering of our employees modeling some of the hottest styles in plus size fashion.

Below are a few of the supermodel styles we worked on the Zappos catwalk. These stylish pieces will have you ready to work it and look fierce well into the new year!

9 Fine Pieces to Keep You Comfy 'N Cozy

The only thing I like better than air conditioning on an August day in Las Vegas is cuddling up in front a fire on a blustery day with my dogs,Luke and Leia, a good book, and a cup of Mexican hot chocolate (if you’ve never had it, find some; chocolate + cayenne pepper= AMAZING).

What makes a day like that even better? Comfortable, amazingly beautiful clothes that fit and flatter. This time of the year, we all find ourselves running here and there and everywhere- dropping off items at a charity, helping friends haul in a tree, baking hundreds of cookies, helping nieces and nephews and little cousins choose and wrap gifts for their parents. Our time is spent in such a hustle and bustle--which means we want two things above all:

  1. To look damn good for every situation, because we never know when we’re going to run into a good-looking elf.
  2. To be as comfortable as possible.

This week, I’ve gathered a group of items that do both. I will HIGHLY recommend adding a pair of AMAZING Cobb Hill boots to any of these to keep your feet looking great and feeling fabulous.

May you all have a great Thanksgiving, and we’ll see some of you out on the road.

Desk-to-Dinner Style: the Shift Dress & the Slouch Pant

It seems like we’re always singing the praises of a multitasking wardrobe, but it’s hard to ignore how certain indispensible pieces can radically streamline your busy lifestyle. And not to mention, they just make more budget sense! Who doesn’t like getting more bang for their buck?

We believe in investing in pieces that seamlessly go from office-appropriate to “I’m ready for a cocktail” just by swapping out a couple of elements. Two such pieces are the flattering shift dress and the comfy-yet-chic slouchy black pant. Both can easily be toned down for work or dressed up for a night out!
