Why the anti-fit jean has never let me down, ever.

Why the anti-fit jean has never let me down, ever.

Big call on the headline there, don’t you think team? NEVER let me down. Like, ever. But the anti-fit jean came into my life with the first 17 Sundays release and it’s been my go-to style ever since. After decades of mot really knowing what shape I’d call myself, it turns out that my stomach absolutely pushes me into apple territory. And the anti-fit, well it’s an apple girls dream jean. Why!? Because the lean fit of the leg, the WIDE waistband, and the skinny, skinny ankle. Fits like a glove, let me tell you. And even if you are…

Boyfriend Jeans for a Plus Size Woman

Boyfriend Jeans for a Plus Size Woman

Hey team, welcome officially to jeans week! The first outfit post kind of got hijacked by me ranting about people on the interwebs, so hey, welcome, settle in and let’s talk about how I wear boyfriend jeans as a plus size woman. I’m a fan of the boyfriend jean and find that for most plus women this is a style that works for most of us! As much as one style can, anyway. But why is that? Well, the relaxed feel of the boyfriend jean, often with rips or patches, lends itself to a more relaxed fit. I actually prefer…

Oh wait, are those FLARES!?

Oh wait, are those FLARES!?

Um yeah, they ARE flares. Killer, right? We might as well kick plus size jeans week off with a killer pair of flares and a fucker tee. I’m going to get to the flares, I promise I am, but I also need to talk about why it was SO important for me to wear this Be Polite You Fucker tee today. And I know you want to hear THAT story. Haha. Well, well, well. It’s been an interesting few days for me. I launched myself into a conversation for body shaming and found my Facebook page front and centre in…

Oh hey, surprise! I’m doing a podcast.

Oh hey, surprise! I’m doing a podcast.

Hey team, I’d love to introduce something COOL I’ve been working on behind the scenes… The Suger + Ink podcast. I’ve teamed up with the super fun Samara from Blonde Ink on this and we cannot wait to launch our iTunes assault on the airwaves (assault may actually be correct, we’re new at this) on August 1st! Why a podcast? HOW? Samara is a big podcast listener. Me? Not so much. But Samara identified pretty early on that one thing that was missing from the podcast world was one about plus size women. So when something is missing why not…

This is why you can’t always buy what I wear…

This is why you can’t always buy what I wear…

There’s a frustration that comes from seeing an item of clothing on a blogger and not being able to buy it. I get that. BEEN THERE. But the thing is that my wardrobe is something I live out of, I wear the clothes I blog and sometimes there are items in that I purchased YEARS before. Because that’s reality, right? This blog isn’t about having the most up to the minute, new from the post items that the world-wide web has to offer. It’s about style, personal style and living your life the best you can. And let’s face it,…

I’ve got to learn things the hard way.

I’ve got to learn things the hard way.

So, confession, even though I dislike pretty much all that Beiber stands for (stood? Who the heck can tell what’s media hype and what’s an actual asshole in sheep’s clothing) when it came to the new album, I loved it. Like WAY more than I would ever have expected to. But why share this? WELL. There’s this one song called I’ll Show You that I love. The lyrics say “I’ve got to learn things, learn them the hard way…” and I was just like, THAT is SOOOOOO me. Me, I have to learn things the hard way. As in, over…

Work Style Slouch with Boots

Work Style Slouch with Boots

This year Winter took it’s time coming to my home town. I didn’t mind one bit, I was still on the beach and splashing about in pools until May, can’t argue with that. But then it arrived one weekend and blasted us with cold air and cooler nights, and I had to get Winter ready. And Winter ready meant boots, as discussed previously (boot weeeeek!). After that it was comfy, cosy layers to work in where attending is cold, but my office isn’t. My officemate LOVES the heater. I gag on hot, recirculated air. So we have to meet somewhere…

Getting dressed, going out

Getting dressed, going out

Some days you just have to get up, put on some face, get dressed up and go out on the town. This weekend we did exactly that (in a different outfit, which I forgot to get photos of in all my rushing around). So here’s one I prepared earlier. All black. All the boots goodness. Can’t beat THAT. I’ve had this a-line turtleneck from Yours Clothing for a while now and hadn’t ever worn it. It turns out having something wrapped around my neck, not something I enjoy, in clothing. Which sounds dirtier than I intended it to be. My…
