Where to Buy: Plus Size Winter Coats

Where to Buy: Plus Size Winter Coats

Oh heeey team. Where to Buy is back with plus size winter coats. By request obviously, because this past weekend I was in a pool. Hello, Queensland you beauty you. BUT some of the ladies are looking for their winter coats and would love a selection to choose from. Always ready to take one for the team, I did the online shopping for you and came up with a shopping board. I know, I know, you’re welcome. Some of the winter coats will get you started now and others are going to serve you more through the actual winter in the places where you need legit warmth. That said, we are online shopping here so I can’t vouch for the…

Introducing 17 Sundays STICKS & STONES A/W16

Introducing 17 Sundays STICKS & STONES A/W16 team. I know some, if not most of you by now I’ve been a little slow on the delivery of this post, will have seen it already. Basked in the gorgeous images and hot hot hot clothes. This campaign is gorgeous and I know it’s going to be seen far and wide. And I want to say something about that before we get started. I want to say something about what it means to have a genuine, knock you on your butt, it’s so beautiful and cool and wow, fashion editorial in plus. About what it means to have clothes, available up to a size 26, given such loving attention in a fashion…

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…

Here is where to buy minimalist clothes for curvy women

Here is where to buy minimalist clothes for curvy women

The Daily Life asked where to buy minimalist clothes for curvy women, I couldn’t have agreed more with the post. This is my style. This simple, pared back, cool pieces that aren’t kitschy or overtly sexy or girly. Where are these retailers? Who is catering to the women in plus who don’t want to dress up, who want fashionable clothes that are classic and chic? Where are they? I loved the article. It summed up how I felt entirely about the problem with being this consumer in the market flooded with girly girl offerings. And yes, I followed a couple of new Instagram accounts for brands I hadn’t heard of. The thing is that I HAVE found the places I…

Where to Buy Plus Size Swimwear

Where to Buy Plus Size Swimwear

I’m a water baby and living in the water requires that you have something to wear. As body confident as I am, nude beaches will never be my thing. So off I go in the search of swimwear that fits, works for the various uses I require it to and looks goooood. I’ve had success and failures and now own somewhere in the region of 15 pairs of togs (that’s swimwear in Queenslander). That makes me an expert, I think. Let’s talk where to buy plus size swimwear, shall we? Click the slides to move on. The final slide includes me in the swimmers I’ve featured on the blog with links back to the original posts. That’s your incentive for…

Where to Buy Plus-Size Fashion: NEO NOIR by Hope & Harvest

Ladies today we continue the new format of Where to Buy Plus-Size Fashion posts with my feature of the newest collection from Australian brand Hope & Harvest. I really don’t think anyone could argue that for fashion forward pieces in the plus-size fashion world the Aussies are at the very front of the pack. Winter in Queensland is short and sharp. Just yesterday morning it was minus four degrees. Cold, yes. But the days are gorgeous and sunny and the whole thing only really goes for a few months. So I love the idea of winter clothes, big jackets and cosy layers but realisticly I have all I need and more. BUT there is always room in my wardrobe for…
