    While my spouse was checking out the ATV Accessories, my friend called up and had a chat with me.  She was lamenting that she has no clothes to wear for her co-worker’s wedding in 2 weeks’ time.  I cannot blame her because shopping choices are very limited for women with voluptuous figure.  I went online to help her look for some dresses and came upon La Grande Dame, an online boutique which caters to larger women.  They have a huge selection of beautiful and trendy clothing as well as accessories.  Here’s a few pieces which I think my friend would like.
