Trigger warning: mental illness
I have quite a few handbags (as in, so many I’m too embarrassed to count them). I tend to get one bag and use it over and over until something else catches my eye, which is why I rarely show you my handbags in my outfit photos unless there’s something new and exciting about them. I thought that for Aussie Curves Handbag week, I would show you my current favourite, with a wee sneak peek of what my handbag essentials are regardless of which bag I’m carrying.
This is such a great week. I love when my favourite labels release their new season lookbooks because it gives me so many beautiful things to swoon over! In Harlow‘s autumn/winter collection they have their signature monochrome palette, body skimming silhouettes and figure hugging denim, and on trend pleather detailing. Harlow also has something new on offer this season, with a collection of carefully curated jewellery and Australian made scarves. Continue reading
Over the weekend I went along to The Very Vintage Day Out, and I had an amazing time! I played assistant at the Photo Safari in the morning, I swooned over lots of scrumptious dresses and cheered for two of my friends who were finalists in Miss Pinup New Zealand 2015. I’ve got a whole bunch of pictures taken by both Doug and myself, so let’s go! Come and experience The Very Vintage Day Out 2015 with me.
And just like that, lazy summer days have gone and autumn is upon us in all it’s cold, windy, rainy glory. The key to surviving the cooler months is making sure that you’re toasty warm, and unless you’re able to stay in bed wrapped in blankets like a burrito, your best bet is to grab a warm coat and layer up – so here are a few of my favourite plus size coats for autumn.
I remember flicking through the pages of magazines like Vogue and Pulp when I was a budding young photographer and swooning over all manner of editorial fashion shoots. I always wished that there were more editorial shoots featuring women with bodies like mine, with clothes that were available in my size, and holy moly does 17 Sundays deliver this in their AW15 lookbook or what?!
What is your favourite place to shop?
I love City Chic, they have such a great variety of styles, stunning evening dresses and fantastic jeans. I do buy dresses from “the internet”, but always with a sense of dread because sizing can vary so much between brands. I prefer to try clothes on before I commit to them! As a busy Mummy, I tend to buy my basic everyday items from Farmers and Kmart. Continue reading
Winter is coming. And with it, jeans weather. I spent years trying to find plus size jeans and now I find myself overwhelmed by choice. Straight leg, bootleg, jeggings, short length, long length… whatever kind of jeans is your jam – it’s out there! A few of you have mentioned that you’re on a budget, and I hear ya! I’ve gone on a hunt and found some great plus size jeans for under $100.
