Australian Plus Size Bloggers to follow on Instagram

These lists are everywhere, right? People to follow and you find the same people on it over and over again. Not much help, we all know the BIG GUNS. The ones who accumulate followers by the thousands. But what about the accounts that demonstrate good old fashion style? What about those accounts? I spend a lot of time on Instagram. Between curating my account and research for workshops or client meetings, it’s my most used app. Sometimes I land on an account that I just cannot understand how it doesn’t have a billion followers. The same can be said the other way too. Like, how!? No clue man, no clue. Anyway. In the interest in sharing the love, the insta fashion…

How does Afterpay work?

How does Afterpay work?

Have you seen the Afterpay logo online and wondered what was THAT about? What it Afterpay and how does it work? I know I did. So, after using it for the first time about a month ago, I thought I’d fill you in on the process so you can see if it works for you. No, for those playing at home, this post isn’t paid for, sponsored, or in anyway affiliated with the Afterpay people. If you’ve been around the blog for a while, you’d know that I’m not into credit cards. The ability to resist a big shiny balance is beyond me, and I can’t help myself. Buying ‘stuff’ calls to me. Anyway, my solution has been to live…

The winter of the jumpsuit.

The winter of the jumpsuit.

I’ve been a fan of the easy to wear jumpsuit since, well, forever! It took me a little while to find one that fits my long torso but the first of those that I loved was from Yours Clothing. I lived in that jumpsuit with its pockets and wide leg fit. My only struggle was the rear zip closure (always a problem) but I looked passed that, as you do. It was on high rotation for a while there. Then last month the team from Birdsnest sent me an email with the new AW17 Belle Bird lookbook. Belle Bird is their plus size offering (though, full disclosure it ends at a size 22) and I loved the simple, classic, but…

Suger’s bumper plus size fashion directory

Welcome one and all to Suger’s BUMPER plus size fashion directory. After the success of the list from Melbourne Fashion Week Plus (I know some of you still refer to that), so I thought it was time to start to compile a list of stores for plus size women. So, no matter where you are in the world, there should be something here for you. That’s exciting, right? This is a list of stores that offer you, the plus size customer, a selection of clothing just for you! I mean, come on, so much awesome.   I don’t know about you, but for me, when I started to delve into the world of online shopping I would stumble over a…

Team Stripes in Casual Grey and Black

Team Stripes in Casual Grey and Black

This week I’ve been approached regarding three denim and jean launches, which is great news for my business, but maaaaan, it’s a billion degrees. And yes I know this is content for the cooler months to come, but I can’t help but think do I have to? Haha. It’s hot. And when it’s hot, you’ll find me in a casual summer dress. Every.  Single. Time.  Case in point, this awesomeness from 17 Sundays. They really do keep me in stripe heaven. The back of this dress HAS to be seen (there’s a photo below) and all in all, I’m in love. I’m wearing the Medium, though my normal size is the Large. You’ll see on the model the more relaxed…

Making a case for the “Little White Dress”

Making a case for the “Little White Dress”

I know we all LOVE our little black dresses. So easy, so simple and always so cool. But there is one hundred a case to be made for the little white dress. And I don’t even mean just in summer, either. The little white dress is becoming a must have in my wardrobe, and here’s why you should consider adding on to yours. It’s fun!  I know, that’s deep, right? Haha. But seriously, the little white dress is fresh and modern, it’s youthful and fun. If you want to mix things up from your usual, give it a try. For me, every time I slip this swishy, ASOS number on (pictured) it feels like summer. And summer feels like good times,…

Umm, what? The Palm Print Summer Dress

Umm, what? The Palm Print Summer Dress

I know team try not to die of shock. This is easily the most colour we’ve seen outfit wise in a LONG TIME. It’s not my fault, I just don’t wear much colour. I like it that way. But when I received this dress from a friend (who happens to own the brand in question) I knew it was too special to decline. Thank you, Ms Harvest.  Welcome home, Havana Palm Print Dress.  Last week, the weather continued to be hot, hot, hot. Afternoon drinks with the husband-type-person were on the cards and I wanted to be out the door asap. So, I threw it on with some heels and I was done. That’s the upside of such a statement print,…

How to turn your summer dress into a top!

How to turn your summer dress into a top!

If an item of clothing is going to live in my wardrobe, it had better be versatile. I don’t want any one trick ponies. After wearing a dress as a top the other day, I thought I’d share more about how. So, this post is about how to take that summer dress you love, and turn it into a top you can wear all year round. No sewing and still keeping it as a dress. I’m about to double your summer dress’s potential. If only I could do so as easily with creepers on the internet. Ah well. Because we all need a bit of assistance in our lives when it comes to maximising your wardrobe. Turning a dress into a top…

My first outfit post of 2017!

My first outfit post of 2017!

Welcome back, ladies and gentleman. Here we are, and it’s already the end of January. Some fashion bloggers had their first outfit posts live on New Years Day. I envy those people; I used to be organised like them. Ahhh, the good old days. But enough of that lamenting the good old days, let’s get reacquainted. How are you!? How is 2017 treating you so far?  I’m doing well if I’m honest, coming down from this blah feeling I had in 2016 took some time. But I’ve bounced back well with some sunshine and lots of visits to the beach. I took the time to focus on what the heck I needed to let go of moving into 2017 and what it…
