Re: Broken Link 2/5/10

Thank you! I can't find an alternate link - looks like they went out of business. Removing the link today.

They stock every dress in every size up to a 40 and do custom work.

I'm sorry, I can't give full links -- LJ always flags the comment as spam when I do it.

I was going through the links to look at clothing, and found some broken ones! Here's the list:

The babyphat, bella avenue sites are godaddy sites. Big at heart and borntoolatevintage.com are now porn sites (?). bosomy.co.uk, carabella cathouseclothing cherished-woman shopcurvation curvykittenloot dellamondo devalifewear is MIA. byrodesigns is now a beer site.

I'll post more as I find them.
