Party outfits for festive season

Plus size festive season party outfits

This time of year things start to get busy with Christmas parties, end of year work dos, New Years Eve and general festive season madness. My friend was messaging me earlier this week asking for help trying to find a last minute dress for an important occasion and I realised that as a plus size woman it can be hard to pick up the perfect dress at the last minute. So, I’ve done the hard yards and found some gorgeous outfits to help you get your glam look ahead of time. Continue reading


Style Beyond 22 Lookbook

22+ style cover

I think that size diversity in fashion is really important – when you’re a size 22 (or bigger), it’s hard to imagine what a piece of clothing is going to look like on you when a brand is showing a size 16 dress on a size 12 model. That’s one of the reasons I started blogging – because I wanted to see bodies like mine and I wanted to know what clothes would look like on someone like me. Continue reading



Swimsuit Special 2016: Tankini

Plus size swimsuit special 2016: tankinis

Personally I’m a fan of two piece swimsuits, because they allow me to mix and match tops and bottoms. There are a couple of different styles of tankini out there this season – ones that are fitted in the bodice and ones that are a looser fit more floaty style – which one do you prefer?

Autumn Days

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Autumn Days Dress from City Chic

I’m very much an autumn person. I love the autumn weather, when it’s warm but not too hot, and days are still long; when leaves start to turn red and fall from trees (do you know how satisfying it is to stomp through crunchy autumn leaves?). I love the colours of autumn, both the colours in nature and in fashion. Blacks, greys, deep reds, mustards, burnt oranges, navy blues … that is my kind of colour palette (no matter what time of year it is). Continue reading


Where to buy plus size bridesmaid dresses

Where to buy plus size bridesmaid dresses

Wedding season is almost upon us and I’ve already had a lot of people asking me about where to find plus size bridesmaid dresses. No matter what size they are, no one wants to have to put on a hideous dress that makes them look like crap, so let’s just agree not to do that to our friends, okay? Continue reading



Plus Size Winter Coats

Plus size winter coats

The first day of winter arrived and true to form I was in my coat. I really feel the cold, so having a good coat to keep me warm is really important – I also like a bit of variety (the perfect coat for every occasion, if you will), so at last count I have at least seven winter coats. Plus I might have ordered another one while writing this post. Continue reading


Plus size activewear picks

Plus size activewear // New Zealand blogger Meagan Kerr wears Active Intent crop top with State of Mind cropped trousers and wrap top

There seems to be a lot of assumption that plus size women aren’t or don’t want to be active. At least, that’s what you’d think given that finding really great plus size activewear has in the past been very difficult. That’s not the case anymore, there are some brands doing great things and I wanted to share a few of my fave picks of what is around at the moment. Continue reading


Sweet Like Candy

Pantone Colour of the Year - Rose Quartz and Serenity

The Pantone Colours of the Year are Rose Quartz and Serenity – a warm rose tone and a cool tranquil blue. This means that we are now seeing a lot of pastel/candy colours cropping up everywhere from homeware to fashion and I for one am loving it. I thought that with Easter just around the corner I’d share a few sweet treats that have been catching my eye…
