Here’s a bombshell: A plus size boutique is opening on Grand Avenue in St. Paul. Imagine: being able to shop the charming avenue, filled with independent stores, for fashionable clothes in sizes 14 to 24. It’s a long-time dream for Denise Alden, who is tired of shopping online and bored with Lane Bryant. She’s calling her boutique Bombshell and plans to stock labels like Kiyonna, Igigi, Lucie Lu and many others. She’s staying away from basics – “The big box stores do casual well,” Alder says. “It’s the great dress or skirt; the beautiful fabrications.” Walls are being painted as we speak at 794 Grand, next to Bruegger’s. Hang tight curvy ladies – you’ll be shopping Grand by August.

    This is such exciting news! And I’m happy to finally have an answer to all the women who are emailing me, asking if I’m expanding my blog into a store. :)

    Finally a store where a women can shop. Sorry Lane Bryant is a bit to young and racy for me. Thank you Denise!
