bombshell vintage polus-size brand australia-6

I am not really a vintage girl. The most vintage thing in my wardrobe are the jackets I pinched from my Mum and forgot all about giving her cash for. It’s not that I don’t think it’s beautiful, I do, I really really do, it just doesn’t fit into my lifestyle or general level of effort. All those victory rolls and make-up take time folks. Haha. It’s too hard for me. I’d need a full-time make-up artist. Desiree?

BUT I saw the most recent collection from Bombshell Vintage on the runway at the Curvy Couture Roadshow and I was snapping away like a mad woman. The colours, the cuts and the style just made me smile. SO fun. I figured even for a girl like me, who likes to keep things simple, there’s something I could woooork. The coats for one, ahh Queensland, why you so warm all the time!? And the lace dress, that I could work with, the sequin number well let me just find the occasion and I would wear the heck out of that.

Am I right? I’m totally right.

If you read any other Australian plus-size fashion blogs you will recognise some of the models too. How fun is that? When brands first started using bloggers as models I got really excited. There’s such a diversity in that. And sure models are glamorous and gorgeous in this aspirational way that I love, but there’s a little bit of a thrill seeing girls you ‘know’/know in a campaign like this. I for one think they did a killer job. Well done ladies.

My favourite part of the brand’s website {which is great and seems really easy to use} is in the about section where brand owner Kate Millet describes why she started the brand and then at the very end there is a small, one line quote that makes this girls heart sing… Dress for your style, not your size. It’s so true because fashion is fun and an expression. It’s time we forgot the old rules and wore clothes that made us look AND feel great. Go nuts team.

And as a final side note, Bombshell Vintage stock sizes 14 to 30. I expect to see that sequin dress in a supermarket aisle on day soon. Why wait for a special occasion, right? Haha. Sequins for everyone! Now, it’s collage time.

  • I love vintage clothes but never do the full vintage look with victory rolls etc – I think if you try to be too authentic it can look a bit fancy dress. If I had a job, I’d be buying the heck out of that coat.

    • That coat is one magnificent piece! The best. I know what you mean, it’s such a full on look. I admire those with the inclination. Me? I like to be dressed and out the door in under 20 minutes. Haha.

    You had me at vintage. You know I’ve been waiting for this day. So now you’ve put it it out there it’s official…….that something fabulous and vintage could grace your wardrobe??? You know me my wardrobe is basically all vintage. But don’t forget vintage isn’t just about victory rolls etc, that’s just one small snippet in time of eras gone by. Vintage can be a mix-match and clash of now and then from whatever eras. I do have o laugh at what Kathryn said bout looking fancy dress, some of my fav pieces in my wardrobe on high regular rotation came from the fancy dress racks at op shops. Oh well I dress for me it makes my heart sing. Btw a big hell yes to the lacey frock I can see you doing it…….who not ProBlogger Friday night event? You know I’m plotting and planning vintage fabulousness for myself……I might stand out like a sore thumb, but I’ll be me and happy.

    • Haha. I thought I might have. The range is gorgeous right? Really very stunning. I think you might be right, that lace dress could work a charm for the networking evening… I wonder if they are having a theme this year? Last year it was tropical, so I might ned flowers for my hair. 😉

      I don’t think either of us meant that there is anything bad about it being costumey. I know when I slip on my varsity jacket or wide leg harem pants, I feel like I’m in costume. That’s the fun part. It’s also what takes all the hard work.
