Boutique Spotlight: Lee Lee's Valise

Hey!
Almost the weekend…
So I received an e-mail yesterday advertising a ‘Plus Size Fashion’ Week taking place at a store in Brooklyn called Lee Lee’s Valise…
Since I’ve been accused in the past of not showing love to big girls, I decided my attendance at the event was mandatory.
I made my way down on the F train, and entered the boutique, only to find that Fashion Week was more of a mix and mingle event with champagne, designers, and lots of clothes. No worries! Lee Lee’s itself provided enough fashion entertainment, and seemed like the perfect place for a plus size diva with a keen sense of style.
The store carries sizes 12 to 28 and features clothes by designers such as Roni Rabl, Anna Scholz, Trentecosta, Tadashi, Elana Miro, and Kiyonna.
I took a look around and found a lot of cool finds with prices that spanned the gamut.
This gold coat by Anna Scholz was a whopping $1,102…
While this cool cropped jacket by Maestro was a more reasonable $39.
This gold and pink dress by Kiyonna is a mid-tier $116...
And this coat, again by Anna Scholz, was $994..
Bring your credit cards!
Of course the ladies who came out were trying things on.
This Lace Boudoir Dress by Kiyonna was very flattering and a reasonable $168…
This ready for work dress by Trentecosta was also $168…
And this showstopper by Roni Rabl was a conservative $200…
Fierce! The young lady wearing it said, “I usually have lots of fit problems. Plus sized clothing usually goes straight down. I never find anything that fits me.”
Thankfully that dress fit the bill…I think she walked out with it on!
Lee Lee's Valise has lots of other must sees.
A wide assortment of Spanx…
Lingerie by companies like Volage with bra sizes that go up to a 46H…

Jeans and t’s…
Accessories…
And bags….
You must stop by!
Plus Size Fashion Week continues tonight and features designers Anna Scholz and Jessica Svoboda. Drop in tonight from 6-9…you won’t be disappointed!
Lee Lee's Valise is at 368 Court Street (at President). Call 718-246-5337 or visit www.leeleesvalise.com for more information and directions.
Smootches!
