here's to the big girls!

want stylish, plus-size fashion chats? start here.

Living life in a fat body, whether you identify yourself that way or not, can be a challenge. When I started outfit blogging, it was to share what I was wearing, where I was buying clothes, and build a community of women who looked like me. I promise you, friend, you can wear whatever you want. Stylish plus-size fashion is here, if you know where to look, and getting better every year. Let’s talk about that.

Taking a social media break helped me figure myself out

Over the last month, on my social media break (as much as work allows), I've noticed a few things. Things about my life that I completely missed in the non-stop app switch that is social media. Firstly, I'm not very satisfied with my life. I keep looking for...

How to turn your summer dress into a top!

If an item of clothing is going to live in my wardrobe, it had better be versatile. I don't want any one-trick ponies. After wearing a dress as a top the other day, I thought I'd share more about how. So, this post is about how to take that summer dress you love,...

Where to Buy a Plus Size Jacket Under $150

I started the hunt for a plus-size jacket because Vanessa, who reads this blog, asked if I'd spotted anything on my travels. And I had, but none that suited her needs or that she hadn't already seen and put aside. So, on Facebook, I reached out to you guys, and you...

Yes, you can wear comfy clothes and be stylish - suger coat it

Are basics only stylish on thin women?

As I scrolled through the street style pictures from Australian Fashion Week and it got me thinking. And no, it wasn’t the lack of plus-size representation. I’ve talked about that before. Every damn year, I’m tired of waiting for this type of inclusion to catch up. What got me thinking was the actual street style fashion and how casual and laidback it was. Planned and executed, obviously, but think ill-fitting/oversized suits, denim and sneakers, flats and basic tees.

Warm Up in a Knit Dress this Winter {she wore what}

You know the weather is getting chilly around here when I start wearing my knit dresses. As someone who hates feeling trapped in overly warm places, clothes or situations, I'll only wear a knit dress when I KNOW it will be cold. And that I'll definitely, without a doubt, need the warmth. It's a whole thing. But I love this brief moment that my hometown turns on the winter, and we get to pretend all those winter clothes are actually useful to own.

Defined as a knitted garment typically with long sleeves, worn over the upper body; jumper. You know the ones. With that in mind, I went looking a little further afield and found some GOLD.

Plus Size Longline Cardigan Casual Birkenstock Outfit - Suger Coat It

You need a long cardigan in your wardrobe {she wore what}

Heading out into the world this week was interesting. It was cool enough for a coat, locally, but still warm enough that you could wear slides. Or, at least, I could. I know, don’t come for me, I’m warm-blooded, what can I say? I ran around doing a few errands, picking up groceries and reminding myself why I hate spending too much time at the shops. We spotted these doors, and despite a large amount of flora growing around it, I decided it was a perfect spot to grab some photos. Perfect may be a stretch, but we got them anyway – victory!
