A Big Plus


BIG AND BEAUTIFUL: After witnessing several disappointed plus-size gals walk into her boutique unable to squeeze into her inventory, The Closet Boutique owner Loretta Vengoechea decided to do something about it. So, she sought out her sister Kris Armada for help. Today, the shop has a plus-size section carrying trendy dresses, tops, pants, skirts, leggings. Sizes run in XL up to 3XL and everything costs under $100. Labels include Miss Ella, Janette Plus, Talent Plus, Spin Jr. Plus, Mai Tai and Gold Saturn. “We’ve gotten a positive reaction so far,” said Vengoechea. “Girls of all shapes and sizes can now walk in without having to worry about the fit or size of our clothes.” GET IT: Closet Boutique, 6354 Bird Road; 305-668-6472
