You Can’t Wear That: Leopard Print Dress

New Zealand plus size blogger Meagan Kerr wears Harlow Leopard Print Bodycon Dress

The older I get, the less patience I have for people who tell me “you can’t”. As if there were some kind of rule that says fat women can’t go bare legged, wear bold prints or rock bodycon dresses. I’m here for all of that and more, because it’s my body and I will adorn it in any way I please. View Post

One day I got a message on my Facebook page from a woman named Rachel saying that her and her partner were starting up a New Zealand made plus size fashion label, and wondering if I’d be able to try on a size 26 sample to see how it fit. I’m always keen to support local designers as I’d love to see a wider range of options available in plus sizes, so of course I said yes. We met up for coffee and I tried on the shirt in question … and I didn’t want to take it off! View Post

ASOS, Kmart and Autograph Clothing Haul

Even though I’m supposed to be trying not to shop, and saving my money, there were a few things I couldn’t help picking up recently. I’m not planning to add a whole lot of things to my summer wardrobe, these are just a few things that I’ve been on the lookout for or really wanted to try out (plus I took advantage of ASOS’s up to 70% off, it would have been rude not to). And so here we are, with another clothing haul – this time including activewear, swimwear, shoes and other summer clothes. View Post

How to style a bodysuit

How to style a bodysuit

Bodysuits are great for spring and autumn, when we’re going through that changeable weather that’s not quite warm and not quite cold. These are the times when you want to be able to layer up, making it easy to add and remove items depending on what the temperature is doing – especially if you live somewhere that has four seasons in one day, like I do. They are also ideal for wearing in place of a top, because they give you that seamless fit underneath your outfit and solve the problem of tops coming untucked. I’d never worn a bodysuit before, so when Sonsee asked me to style one of theirs I gladly took up the challenge. View Post
