What to do if your partner doesn’t like your clothes.

What to do if your partner doesn’t like your clothes.

Look, I kind of want to say dump them, but I won’t. Not yet, maybe later. If your partner doesn’t like your clothing choices it can be a tricky to navigate thing. Everyone wants to be attractive and the approval from someone who loves you is always nice. But what happens when they don’t ‘get it’? That’s what I want to chat about. It’s something that comes up in questions and conversations often enough. Heck, just this week Kel told me my dress looked like a sack and I should consider a belt. I don’t know why or where it came from, but apparently, he’s Anna Wintour all of a sudden. Haha. But in the end, he knew and I…

Team Slouch continues for AW17

Team Slouch continues for AW17

I’m Team Slouch, maybe more so these days than I am Team Stripes, shock horror. I love to wear draped, easy, oversized pieces. It’s become my thing in the last few years. The combination of a deep neckline and slouchy dress or an oversized maxi knotted up to show some serious leg is just really sexy cool to me. There’s a conversation that says that plus size women shouldn’t wear ‘oversized’ shapes to avoid looking bigger. God forbid, right? Why would ANYONE want to look fatter than they are? Forget that. Forget all that they told you. First of all, why is every fashion aim to look smaller, leaner, thinner? Why is that the only outcome we are told to…

Actual cool AF plus size jackets

Actual cool AF plus size jackets

I know, it’s Queensland and usually, I avoid doing these plus size jackets posts. I hate seeking out all these gorgeous pieces and then never getting to buy or wear them. Queensland life means that for one’ish month a year I need a decent jacket, the rest of the year a jumper will do. It’s a hard life, you know? Haha. BUT. Buuuuuut I’m trying to be a little more responsive and a little less all about me. Trust me, it won’t hurt me to try. Haha. So, I started searching and putting together a list. Some are winter at a Queensland level type of coat or jacket. Others, are legit “it’s cold and I need actual warmth” style. I…

Weekend shapeless layers

Weekend shapeless layers

I found this button up sheer maxi dress in my wardrobe clean up a while ago. When I first picked it up from Yours Clothing I wore it more like a sleeveless vest, but since it reappeared it’s been all top, all the time. The good news is that they have released it again lately, so it’s for sale on the site now. I know! That never happens with my wardrobe finds. It’s hard to tell in these photos but it’s actually pretty sheer. Layering it over jeans or pencil skirts has become a bit of a thing. I love the shapeless, drape of it which combines perfectly with leaving it unbuttoned revealing a peek of my stomach. So fun.…

Boots, boots, wide fit boots: the 2017 edition

Boots, boots, wide fit boots: the 2017 edition

Are we ready to rumble? Wide fit boots, that are both cool and suitable for the plus size customer? I thought you might be. Of course you are, with winter is around the (okay, maybe a couple of) corners and I don’t know about you, but it’s about that time I start to hunt for boots! Ankle boots, knee-high boots, heck this year, even over the knee boots. I’m ready. Are you ready for boots season? If you’re keen to check out how I wear boots, including some outfit inspiration from the blog, I created a couple of posts for boots week a while ago. There are posts about how I wear ankle boots and the one where I talk…

Australian Plus Size Bloggers to follow on Instagram

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…
