Chic Star!
Stripe Triangle Collar Jacket. This is from my corset jacket design. Ii is the white stripe and I'm wearing it with a vintage styled back ruffle skirt and top hat. Because of the extra stretch I'll have to order a size smaller. LOVE the pinstripes!

Exactly ! And I have to say that your pictures is not there for so long I have visited this web site before (she sell a lot of plus-size!) and there was any of that... and as I shop a lot on ebay I was surprise seeing you Mary... for some pic they cut the top of heads too... but I could see it is coming for here... I also know that Chicstar would never agree to something like that and felt I had to repport even if none of my pictures were used !

Based on how recent some of the photos are it's obvious this is a person who comes here with some regularity. It's a shame, too, because some of their other dresses are nice but I don't want to purchase anything and be supporting their piracy and their blatant lack of respect for customers.

Hello Mary, We contacted the website owner regarding the photo copy right issue twice but get no response. We never authorize them use these photos. We will be looking into further actions and try to find a solution to resolve this problem. I apologize for this copyright issue to all photo owners involved. Thank you.

Actually I already said it to Chicstar because our pictures are not supposed to be used without our permission... Chicstar had send them a message asking them to remove the pictures but did not get any answers... Since I like a lot of people here (even if it is just virtual relation !) I tought they might like to know what is going on with their pic ! And I also post 8 pictures here and never saw teham anywhere else ! I think it is just a few of them have been used by that web site ! But maybe if all people who have one of their pic there complains it might do something and helped Chicstar to had them removed...

Thank you LouLou for showing that link. I tink Chicstar should clearly state if the picture subitted for memebers are nok allowed to be us at resellers site. Might it be ebay or another online site. I took a look at their site and so many members being posted there. I would like to send in pictures. But not if they get picket up like this and used. How do memebers get their pictures removed. Is it Chicstars job or ourself? I hope CS will clearly state that it is nok ok to use member photos to sell items and their store.

Okay, now I'm pissed. Mary, I hate to tell you this, but there's some shameless merchant out there using Chic Star model's pictures. http://stackeddames.com/item_235/Plus-Size-White-Pin-Stripe-Bowknot-Elise-Jacket.htm I've already reported this to Chic Star. I just e-mailed them again. There are many many more pictures taken from here. I though you might want to know, and maybe give the owner a piece of your mind.

Thanks all! Yes...it is a versatile top, I have tried it with jeans, velvet pants and a short full skirt and they all look great with this piece. William, I think I got the skirt at Newport New but it was a while back so I am not sure.

I like the pinstripes too, this has a really classy look and I actually really like the shape of the design seeing it worn. I might have to try selling these.

Hello Mary, Just now I checked the items you mentioned. First two orders are designer's free samples and the last one is an auction item. Usually designer's samples will be later than auction items. Usually it takes no more than 2 months and we hope could decrease the turn around time next year. Thank you.

Hello Mary, Would you please tell the order number which you did not receive? Recently some auction items were delayed but it shouldn't take that long. Please let me know and I will be looking into this matter. Thank you and sorry for the delay.

Oh I totally understand SYLVIA PLUS CS is a very unique store...Custom making garments for winners of auctions and the designers is very special and time consuming indeed... especially when not producing on a large scale that will actually make them money. But I still think that on the auction piece page they should just remove the part that says ships within 7 days after payment...I understand a lot of things are involved when making 1 unique piece and of course I consider myself an ULTRA patient person...it's just that I read a few posts where people are questioning it...like I said, I certainly do NOT mind waiting for my ALMOST one of a kind piece. Thanks for your input though...I LOVE hearing from intelligent retailers who have experience in the industry! I ALWAYS look forward to your posts. ^__~

It seems to me that when other items are in heavy production the auction/sample items are delayed - which makes sense for a manufacture's point of view. I'm going to devote me time to the items that are going to sell multiples and are in demand first, then produce the specialty items. But you're right, they should probably send an email or post a msg that there will be a delay in production of an item. I myself am waiting for 3 pieces (one from late October) but since the pieces that are being produced ahead of mine are making me money, I'm not complaining ;)

IONELE...I have a sample piece that was auctioned off in September and I did not receive it yet. I have a few more pieces from a couple of months that I didn't receive.....I DO GET THE PIECES but sometimes it takes a LONG WHILE. Sometimes the auction pieces take a long time, too....NOT 7 days after auction which I DON"T mind waiting as I AM PATIENT...BUT it should be changed on the site....The part that says ships within 7 days after payment.
