Team, meet my newest brand crush Universal Standard.

Team, meet my newest brand crush Universal Standard.

Bought to you by Universal Standard’s Universal Fit Library. Ladies, meet someone who has become very special to me, Universal Standard. The love affair with them started when I came across their Starter Kit idea. You purchase seven pieces, receive the eight for free and you can mix and match it into 20 looks! As someone who’s wardrobe often takes over and gets out of hand, this streamlined idea was so exciting. I pinned every single one of their outfit ideas.  Because of that, they’d been on my list to try for ages. But I was unsure of sizing (me, not them), plus I already possess a billion items of clothing and I’m easily distracted, so I’d never gotten around to…

Sunny Autumn days outfit

Sunny Autumn days outfit

It turns out that the title of this post is a little outdated. Whoops. We have already hit winter (officially) because boy oh boy, doesn’t time fly. I decided to keep it though because what I’m talking about is those sunny days where it’s warm enough for pretty much whatever you want to wear but cool enough for a jacket. Those magical days. And on magical days a girl needs an outfit.  For me, the go-to, fall-back, never fail outfit is a simple dress, ankle boots and a jacket (usually something pretty light). For some of you, it will be jeans and others a maxi dress, we all have our items or style that we love. In the end, the rules…

Mr Suger’s least favourite outfit, ever.

Mr Suger’s least favourite outfit, ever.

Ladies and Gentleman, meet Mr Suger’s least favourite outfit ever! That’s a heck of a claim, right? A lot to live up to but I assure he was adamant, bless his heart. This outfit, which I thought was very “watch me transition seamlessly through autumn into winter“. Heck, it barely even had any black in it. But nope, the Mr wasn’t a fan and if you’ve read this blog for a little while you’ll probably guess why… It was the pants. The harem style, low hanging crotch, some (Kel!) might even call “bunchy crotch” pants. I didn’t have the heart to tell him I have multiple pairs. I also own them in black, in a grey/black heavier material and a cropped…

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,…
