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…

Classic all black textured outfit

Classic all black textured outfit

When it comes to wearing black, I keep it interesting by incorporating textured fabrics. It’s hardly revolutionary, Melbournites have been doing it for as long as black has been in. It keeps the outfit interesting but simple. It simple works every single time. Using textures for interest is pretty simple too. In this outfit, I’ve used a leather-look midi skirt (my current loooove) and layered this top over it. It’s a simple outfit. Really simple and easy to wear, but it’s got a certain impact about it too. The top brings that. The skirt brings that. The nude boots in their easy perfection add to it as well. They sort of bookend with my hair actually, now I think about it. And…

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, plenty of people spend more than they can afford on such things, and that would never sit right with me.…

When all else fails, go back to basics

When all else fails, go back to basics

When the blog mojo fails, and you’ve been posting nothing (well, not nothing, but nothing on the blog), then it’s time to take it back to basics. And basics for me is my good old ankle boots, chambray, and a throw over jacket combination. Luckily for me the Team at 17 Sundays have me well stocked in denim/chambray pieces (as per) and I’ve got my winter look all wrapped up. I know, some of you are like WINTER!? Winter, seriously Suger your leg are still bare. But well, such is life around here. Sure nights get cold, where I live can just edge over into the minuses temperature wise. But the days are perfection full of sunshine and skipping along…

What I wore to my cousin’s wedding

What I wore to my cousin’s wedding

  You all know that it rained here for about two weeks straight, right? Well, in the middle fo all that there was a wedding. A beachside wedding. A wedding that was moved indoors because of sideways crazy-ass rain! My cousin’s wedding. She married her partner of ten years in a small ceremony. It was perfect. Don’t you think that things like that are sent to remind us that marriage never goes your way all the time? That it’s a preparation of sorts to learn to be flexible and open to change and compromise? I do. I think that’s why it’s such good luck to have it rain on your wedding day. You get the lesson long before the rest…

Oversized All White Dress

Oversized All White Dress

Slipping the fabric of this white dress over my head, pulling it over my hips and into position around my legs, I thought to myself how comfortable, how easy it is to wear and how stylish. With a shake of my hair, the grabbing of my favourite boots and the addition of some jewels I was ready. Another dinner out. Grocery shopping has been avoided this week at all costs. ALL costs. I shouted to Mr Suger that I would meet him in the car, grabbed my camera on the way past and flicked through my phone while I waited for him to join me. We left and on the way pulled over to grab some photos. The sun was…

Beg, borrow, steal… Well not steal.

Beg, borrow, steal… Well not steal.

Sharing my outfit today with a side order story about my friend Olivia. Olivia who likes to loan and sometimes even sell me clothes. Olivia who I love, of course. I mean you don’t meet people like this woman every day. But you must be wondering, why the love fest for Olivia? Well, the reason we are talking about Olivia is that she gave me this dress. Cute right? Olivia was one of my first girlfriends since high school that I could swap clothes with. She lives close enough to home, wears a similar’ish size and even if we don’t style items the same way we have a crazy amount of crossover of the same items in our wardrobe. It…

Classic Black and White.

Classic Black and White.

I’m a big fan of the classics. I like a simple and chic all black ensemble. I looooove a black and white combination. I could live in a throw on denim jacket and never have any need for any other jacket ever. The classics are classic for a reason and in my opinion if you plan to get the most out of a smaller wardrobe then you need to embrace the classics. Especially if by classics you mean simple lines in black and white. Am I right or am I right?  Most of my outfits lately have been black on black or black and white. I’m okay with that. Sure I add colour here or there but when I get…

She Wore What: Almost Winter Whites

She Wore What: Almost Winter Whites

My plan this winter is to wear white. A LOT. I’m adding to my wardrobe and I pretty much am planning to add the snowy shade to everything I wear. Stains pending. Haha. But I love the white against my skin tone and copper hair colour. Adding black, grey and denim is my entire plan. Don’t expect much colour from me this winter. I’m going some version of Scandinavian, an Aussie version. I like colour, but meh, maybe another season. Ha. Do you ever do that? Just decide that for a while all you are going to do is dress like this, do that, whatever? I do. Sometimes I realise I’ve done it and I have only worn black and…
