My workwear picks

Plus size workwear

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.

Here’s a few that I’ve found – let me know which ones you like! View Post

Style Beyond 22 Lookbook

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. View Post
