It’s that time of year when many of us are heading back to work, or maybe starting a new job (or looking for one), so it’s time to talk about officewear. As you know, I work from home (sometimes in my pyjamas) and I work in a creative industry rather than a corporate one, so even when I have meetings I don’t need to dress in the same way as someone who is in an office all the time. I do love helping other people find clothes they feel confident in though, and I’m pretty adept at browing the shops for clothing options, so let’s talk plus size workwear. View Post
There are some things that, when I post pictures of myself wearing them, I’ll almost inevitably get someone saying “You’re so brave, I wish I could wear that”. One of those things is bodycon dresses (which just so happen to be one of my favourite things to wear), and I thought that since I’ve just added two of them to my wardrobe (you can see the other one here) I’d take a moment to do some mythbusting.

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
After having a lot of people ask me for ideas on how to style striped pants, I was really excited when The Warehouse brought out a pair in their plus size line, giving me the chance to get some and style them for myself. View Post
I get so many people asking me where to find plus size workwear that I thought I’d scout out some ideas for you. As you know, I work from home and my days of dressing for the office are over, but I do really enjoy helping other people finding clothes they feel confident and awesome in, so let’s do this.
There are a lot of different dress codes out there when it comes to office outfits – some people have to have their shoulders covered; some must wear a suit; some can be as out there as they like. Then there’s the combination of what you want to wear – a blouse and tailored trousers, a skirt with a top, a blazer, a matching suit, a dress, with stockings or without? View Post
