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.

New to me plus-size brands giving big summer energy

A stack of magazines including peppermint magazine

Do you still subscribe to magazines?

I've always loved the glossy pages of a magazine. Not literally, the glossy pages drive me nuts with fingerprints, but you know what I mean. Whether it was about fashion or home decor, far off adventures or food. A lot of why I wanted to be a writer when I was a...

Lizzo’s watch out for the big grrrls

Ummm, excuse me, internet, but have you heard about Lizzo's new show? "Watch Out For The Big Grrrls" is coming, and I'm not sure we're ready, to be honest. It's a dance competition for a chance to win a spot on Lizzo's World Tour. Now, I don't know much about...

ASOS Oversized White Sumer Dress - Plus Size

My Go-To White Summer Dress

It started in the lead up to Christmas. We were heading north, and I knew that meant long days in the heat or pool, coming out for meals or to sleep. So, I wanted something that looked festive but was easy to wear. Enter this accidentally oversized swing dress in...

Where to buy plus size clothes for teenagers

Where to buy plus size clothes for teenagers

I know what I'm talking about when it comes to plus size clothes for teenagers. How? Well, 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 and angst-driven disordered...

Where to buy plus size pyjamas and sleepwear

Where to buy plus size pyjamas and sleepwear

We’re bringing this where to buy post to you today by request! In the past year or two, we have certainly learned to love our loungewear, and a big part of that is sleepwear. When I first received the request, I was like, errr, this will be a short ass list. But, the more I looked into it, the more I found some great options from big and small plus-size retailers.

Size does matter in Australian Plus-Size Fashion

Size does matter in Australian Plus-Size Fashion

This week we saw another brand launch into the Australian plus-size fashion market. Fronted by one of the biggest names in plus, American model Ashley Graham, with the locals following loyally behind. The Commonry burst onto the scene with the sort of ripples a well-bought marketing strategy can buy. It’s reminiscent of other brands who have attempted similar in years gone by. Brands, which for the most part, don’t sell plus here anymore. I’ll let you put two and two together.

I’m here for the denim joggers

I’m here for the denim joggers

How do you like your denim? When it comes to plus-sizes I have found it can be hit and miss; some are great, there are quality offerings and then there are the ones that aren't even denim at all. I like jeans and I wear them sometimes, weather permitting, but what I...

No one cares if you’re an outfit repeater!

No one cares if you’re an outfit repeater!

I'm not sure I know anyone who is against outfit repeating IRL; it seems like an influencer problem to me. That's what I said to Ms Katy on her post about normalising outfit repeating. It sounds a little blunt, but you know what I mean. No one cares if you repeat an...

Do all the things, casual outfit

Do all the things, casual outfit

I'm not going to lie, I left my run, on the whole getting ready for Christmas thing, too late this year. Since sometime last week I've been progressively more stressed that my small-ish hometown won't have everything I need to be ready for Christmas! That I will be...
