Dress, Boots, Tights; Winter Style.

Dress, Boots, Tights; Winter Style.

This post is about Winter Style. How, right? This is me. I’m a summer kid, born and bred. Living for long days at the beach, sand between my toes and the salty ocean air on my skin. I even love things like the sting of too much sun and the crashing relief of an afternoon storm. Such a summer kid. But this year something changed. When it got to March and temperatures were still soaring, I’d had enough. I was ready for the cooler weather, ready for a change. And by May, I got my wish. As usual, patience, teaching me a lesson at every turn. It was time to pull out the winter gear and let’s face it, this…

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…

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…

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…

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…

THE Grid Print dress (hello spring!)

THE Grid Print dress (hello spring!)

There are few items that have been so anticipated, the grid print dress from 17 Sundays is all kinds of a cult item already. We came, we saw it on the runway, we wanted it! Well, I certainly did. I jumped on the chance to own one and after much deliberation, I decided to order a size down from my usual size and get the medium. Ooooo, risky!  I love the slouch, I’m all about the slouch. But this dress I wanted to be short and sweet, I wanted spring chic and I knew long before it arrived that my nude shoes were the perfect match. So for those playing at home, I’m around 178cm and currently wear a 22/24 in…
