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,…

The Valentina Loves Summer chambray dress!

The Valentina Loves Summer chambray dress!

Despite a (still) full wardrobe, there’s nothing I can do to resist a chambray shirt dress. Literally nothing. There has to be a rehab for that, right? Probably. Someone do some googling for me, would you? Haha. Anyway, when the PR team for new brand Valentina Loves approached me they had my number as soon as I saw this dress. Heart eyes. It’s a pretty unique cut and style as far as sleeveless shirt dresses go. It’s pretty straight through, wide at the hips with POCKETS and dual side splits. The fabric is heavier than a light-weight chambray but not as heavy as a jean denim. If that even makes sense. For me, it’s a little small (I’m wearing the…

Blush Bodycon

Blush Bodycon

My friend Emma is getting married later this year and when I looked into my wardrobe, the discussions over what to wear have begun, there was nothing there that I hadn’t worn a billion and one times and I was over it. So I did what most plus size women do for such an occasion, I went to ASOS. Months in advance. Because there’s one thing I’ve learnt about buying plus size clothing for special occasions and that is that there will be nothing when you need it and there will be lots when you don’t. So you better start early and plan ahead. Such is life. Murphy’s Law or something. With some browsing, this blush bodycon dress, along with…

Denim Jogger Life

Denim Jogger Life

A few weeks ago I gave away a pair of these joggers in a double denim awesome giveaway with the team from 17 Sundays. Now, a lot of you didn’t win. Obviously, there could be only one. But I know some of you went a grabbed yourself a pair anyway. Hello, these spotted pants of awesome are so fun. So are you looking into the different ways to wear them? I bet you are. And you know me, always happy to help. So I thought I’d bring together how the ladies who entered the giveaway suggested that THEY would wear them along with showing you how, this time, I wore mine. That’s a win, right? Styling ideas are the hardest…

Trying something a little different

Trying something a little different

When the fine folks at Boohoo offered me a few pieces from the new collection, it took me a little while to decide what I wanted. With an idea for an Australia Day post (that, whoops, never eventuated) I chose from red, white and blue sections of the websites. This top was something I came back to time and time again. Not really my style but I’d seen other plus bloggers wear the style, and I was curious enough to give it a go. You know me, I’ll try anything once. Even girly maxi dresses. Ha! When it arrived, I had big plans to throw it over some denim cut off shorts with my sneakers for some Australia Day festivities…
