Wearing 17 Sundays dress and shoes from boohoo.com

Yesterday an article on Stuff mentioned that size 18 is the top seller at New Zealand department store Farmers. They also mentioned that many New Zealand retailers only go to a size 14-16 – something that many of you wish wasn’t the case. One of the things so many people say to me about New Zealand plus size fashion is that they would love to have the options available in straight size – there are so many different designs, prints and colours that are difficult to find in bigger sizes – especially if you want to shop in store and be able to try things on!

Boohoo Plus Clothing Haul

Meagan Kerr wears Boohoo Plus Tara Crepe Frill Sleeve Top in size 26

After having varied experiences with boohoo.com (some purchases were great and some not so much), I’d given up on them until I recently found out that their plus size range had expanded from 16-24 to 16-28. I believe in second chances, and figured that if they had extended their range then perhaps they might have sorted out their fit issues as well. View Post

Plus Size Christmas Jumpers and Tees

Plus size Christmas jumpers and tees

Every year I put together a selection of my favourite plus size Christmas jumpers, and this year is no exception. Added to the mix are a few Christmas tees, because it’s summer here in New Zealand and that means it’s way too warm to wear a big fluffy jumper. I bought my first Christmas tee last year and I love it. View Post

Snake Print Sweater

This is Meagan Kerr #nzstylecurvettes Autograph Snake Print Sweater

Today has been one of those days when the weather can’t make up it’s mind. It was extremely sunny but very cold this morning, then it warmed up before the storm clouds rolled in. All of a sudden it was raining, hailing and sunny all at the same time! This changeable weather makes layering really important, and I prefer fabrics that are thin yet warm for this, so I don’t end up looking like I’m wearing every item of clothing I own. View Post

12 plus size sweaters to keep you warm this winter

When I got up this morning, it was 1ÂșC. That’s not really a temperature that I operate well at (who does, really?), and it made me acutely aware that I don’t own any sweaters. After my closet sale and donating a whole lot of clothes, shoes and beauty products to women who needed them more than I do … I’m going to have to do a bit of shopping to find something warm and snuggly.
