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,…

Here is where to buy minimalist clothes for curvy women

Here is where to buy minimalist clothes for curvy women

The Daily Life asked where to buy minimalist clothes for curvy women, I couldn’t have agreed more with the post. This is my style. This simple, pared back, cool pieces that aren’t kitschy or overtly sexy or girly. Where are these retailers? Who is catering to the women in plus who don’t want to dress up, who want fashionable clothes that are classic and chic? Where are they? I loved the article. It summed up how I felt entirely about the problem with being this consumer in the market flooded with girly girl offerings. And yes, I followed a couple of new Instagram accounts for brands I hadn’t heard of. The thing is that I HAVE found the places I…

How to wear a denim vest

How to wear a denim vest

How to wear a denim vest might be a little extreme, but like most things around here, it was inspired by the interwebs. Arlene mentioned she was wondering today how and when to wear a denim vest, and I said, short version, with everything! It has to be the most versatile piece in a wardrobe. And for a while now I’ve been getting by using my chambray gillet from 17 Sundays as a substitute. That, as you can see, is no longer the case. Embody Denim sent me their new season vest for editorial consideration after spotting my ponderings about cutting the sleeves off the 17 Sundays jacket (I know, blasphemy) and making it a vest. Things got too far…

Hope & Harvest Nautica SS14 Blogger Review

Hope & Harvest Nautica SS14 Blogger Review

Earlier this year, the night before Liv’s wedding to be exact, Harvest from the brand Hope & Harvest came to Brisbane. While she was here, Liv organised a Queensland Plus Blogger dinner for her. During the dinner, Harvest mentioned the new collection and how much she thought we’d love it. “I’ll let you know when it’s coming out,” she said before she disappeared into the car of her designated driver. And let us know she did. Nauticas SS14 launched a week (or two?) ago and on Friday Liv of Wait Until the Sunset, Emma and I donned the clothes Harvest had crammed into a giant post-bag and grabbed some pics. And by some, I mean well over one hundred; most…

Win a Hope & Harvest Y.O.L.O. Skirt

Win a Hope & Harvest Y.O.L.O. Skirt

This pretty darn impressive skirt has been hanging over the back of my office chair for weeks now. Taunting me. Mr Suger hasn’t been around to grab any photos and I wanted to be sure to do it justice so I’ve been gazing longingly at it, unworn and lonely. It’s time finally came! Paired with simple black to let the subtle pattern and colour of the skirt standout, I was all set for some pics. And boy oh boy. He nailed it. But let’s not tell him, that dude’s head is the size of a house from all the blog photo compliments he has been getting lately. Lucky he’s cute, even with a giant head. These pics perfectly capture the…

Where to Buy Plus-Size Fashion: NEO NOIR by Hope & Harvest

Where to Buy Plus-Size Fashion: NEO NOIR by Hope & Harvest

Ladies today we continue the new format of Where to Buy Plus-Size Fashion posts with my feature of the newest collection from Australian brand Hope & Harvest. I really don’t think anyone could argue that for fashion forward pieces in the plus-size fashion world the Aussies are at the very front of the pack. Winter in Queensland is short and sharp. Just yesterday morning it was minus four degrees. Cold, yes. But the days are gorgeous and sunny and the whole thing only really goes for a few months. So I love the idea of winter clothes, big jackets and cosy layers but realisticly I have all I need and more. BUT there is always room in my wardrobe for…

Steal Her Style: Maleficent

Steal Her Style: Maleficent

No really, hand me over the ruby-red lippie and the all black ensemble. This autumn/winter I have been seriously in love with black and white and the shades of grey in between. THIS sort of pushed me over the edge. All black. Black on black. A bit of dramatic styling. I want it all and more. I even ordered my first ever Limecrime matte red lipstick. It’s happening folks. Expect for there to be a blackout. So why the flash of inspiration? What other than the ridiculously gorgeous Angelina Jolie in a killer movie about one of the best characters EVER? Well just all that of course. Hubby and I attended the media screening in Brisbane on Tuesday night {one…
