Denim jackets that will make you want to upgrade.

Denim jackets that will make you want to upgrade.

Everyone loves a denim jacket. It’s so easy to throw on, it goes with everything and if you find the right one it will last you years and year of wear. That’s a wardrobe staple if I ever saw one. After the winter jackets post a couple of weeks ago, Candice asked me about denim jackets. And hey presto, a search party was formed! Our mission? Cool, wearable denim jackets that wouldn’t (all) break the bank. Let’s face it, a denim jacket is something that you can get away with spending more on (if you’re in that position). I’ve had one of mine (a cropped one with 3/4 sleeves from Autograph) since 2009! I’m not even sure the cost per…

Comfy and cosy in knit joggers

Comfy and cosy in knit joggers

It finally happened! We finally got some cool weather. As I type this my toes are cold AND I put a cardigan on. I mean, it’s pretty much peak winter over here. Haha. This was great news because I’d been sent (for free, to be clear) a bunch of new season clothing from a few brands and they’d been mocking me in the corner as I sweated my way through some unseasonable warmth. But my time has come.  Their time, I guess. On the weekend the knit joggers paired with their slouchy split side top and the white haven emporium patchwork cape. Let’s face it, the cape was a little optimistic, it wasn’t that cold, but it dressed up the outfit…

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…

Actual cool AF plus size jackets

Actual cool AF plus size jackets

I know, it’s Queensland and usually, I avoid doing these plus size jackets posts. I hate seeking out all these gorgeous pieces and then never getting to buy or wear them. Queensland life means that for one’ish month a year I need a decent jacket, the rest of the year a jumper will do. It’s a hard life, you know? Haha. BUT. Buuuuuut I’m trying to be a little more responsive and a little less all about me. Trust me, it won’t hurt me to try. Haha. So, I started searching and putting together a list. Some are winter at a Queensland level type of coat or jacket. Others, are legit “it’s cold and I need actual warmth” style. I…

Weekend shapeless layers

Weekend shapeless layers

I found this button up sheer maxi dress in my wardrobe clean up a while ago. When I first picked it up from Yours Clothing I wore it more like a sleeveless vest, but since it reappeared it’s been all top, all the time. The good news is that they have released it again lately, so it’s for sale on the site now. I know! That never happens with my wardrobe finds. It’s hard to tell in these photos but it’s actually pretty sheer. Layering it over jeans or pencil skirts has become a bit of a thing. I love the shapeless, drape of it which combines perfectly with leaving it unbuttoned revealing a peek of my stomach. So fun.…

Boots, boots, wide fit boots: the 2017 edition

Boots, boots, wide fit boots: the 2017 edition

Are we ready to rumble? Wide fit boots, that are both cool and suitable for the plus size customer? I thought you might be. Of course you are, with winter is around the (okay, maybe a couple of) corners and I don’t know about you, but it’s about that time I start to hunt for boots! Ankle boots, knee-high boots, heck this year, even over the knee boots. I’m ready. Are you ready for boots season? If you’re keen to check out how I wear boots, including some outfit inspiration from the blog, I created a couple of posts for boots week a while ago. There are posts about how I wear ankle boots and the one where I talk…

Dying my hair grey and maintaining the colour

Dying my hair grey and maintaining the colour

I know you guys are curious about me dying my hair grey. There are always questions and comments about it when I share a photo on the Facebook or Instagram pages. And I’m not going to sugarcoat it, it’s a pain in the butt sometimes. Grey is probably the hardest colour I’ve ever tried to maintain, and I’ve tried most of them! It’s one of those things, I suppose. Great in theory, but almost impossible to do well. I know. I tried and failed to get to this colour for a million years. Only a slight exaggeration. But we got there in the end. So, what made me decide to go grey? Well, the bottle version. I’m envious of natural grey…

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,…
