The Best Plus Size Jeans Over/Under $100!

The Best Plus Size Jeans Over/Under $100!

I really felt like the whole week couldn’t go by without a shopping post. I’d planned to update my old Where to Buy Plus Size Jeans post (still relevant) BUT Megan on Instagram asked about great jeans she could buy UNDER $100 and I thought this would be more fun. Let’s call it an over/under post shall we? I went online shopping.  With no monies, as usual, because I just spent my surplus DINK income on a large spa and the related paraphernalia including a spa warming party. Whoops. And not only that, but I own WAY more denim than a Queensland girl should. More jeans than any one girl could wear in this lifetime or the next. I’m greedy like…

Skinny Jeans for a Plus Size Woman

Skinny Jeans for a Plus Size Woman

Oooooo, skinny jeans! We’ve all heard the joke aimed at fat women about skinny jeans requiring you to be skinny to wear them, it’s like the Dad joke of body shaming. But let me tell you, this throwaway line is actually total b.s. and when you find your perfect pair of skinny jeans, I promise you, you’ll live in them! I know I always did. Anyone who has been following this blog for a while will tell you, I hit the skinny jeans trend pretty hard with my first pair from ASOS. As an apple shape (apparently) jeans that fit my legs, showing off the definition that I’d worked hard to achieve, was such a win! That’s one of the…

How I wear ankle boots as a plus size woman

Oh hey team, it’s ankle boots daaaaay! I was a wee bit excited to write this post because I love ankle boots and I want to make the plus size women of the world love them too. Because they’re awesome. Short versions. But because nothing is easier to wear, can keep you stomping around all day being a boss or cooler than an ankle boots. You want that right? Of course you do. Following on from the how I wear knee-high boots post from earlier in the week, this post has two main examples of wearing ankle boots, with jeans or leggings and with skirts and dresses.

Suger’s guide to beme Spring

Suger’s guide to beme Spring

Brought to you by beme. Ladies and, well, ladies welcome to spring! Eeekk, I know right? Thank goodness. Because after spring comes summer and I cannot wait. So when the team at beme approached me to share the beme spring lookbook with you all I heard spring/summer and was like YES! I’m in. After taking a look through the lookbook, I chose a few items that I wanted to put together into an outfit (there’s another post coming, get excited) to share. Because we all know that me in the dress with sneakers is always going to look different to the model with her blow-dry. Not that that’s a bad thing… So for the first post I chose this cute, comfortable and…

Where to buy plus size bras that don’t suck

Where to buy plus size bras that don’t suck

Where to buy plus size bras that don’t suck is a guide born from a reader question. Or as I like to call them, a lord help me where the freaking hell do they keep the good stuff shout out. With bras on her mind, the most recent inquiry came via Tess. She lamented the lack of decent t-shirt bras just as much as she wanted a hot little number for those (woot woo) special occasions. Well hello Tess, don’t we all! So I did what a reasonable blogger would do and went on a bear hunt for bears. I left no stone unturned and no obstacle unconquered. I sought out the best that there is on offer and out them…

Where to buy plus size clothes for teens

Where to buy plus size clothes for teens

I’ve been over 5’10” since I was 12. To say that I was a plus size teen is an understatement. I was tall, large and in varying stages of puppy fat between an Australian size 12 to 18 the entire time. I was thinking about that the other weekend when my nieces visited. Tall, slim girls they have the issue of length when it comes to buying clothes. It made me think of the plus girls out there. When I was a teenager there weren’t a lot of options shopping wise. I remember losing a bit of weight in my senior years and finding that I could fit back into the main stream stores who by this stage were regularly…
