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

First Look: Chocolat SS17

New Zealand plus size designer clothing SS17 Chocolat

I always get really excited when Chocolat releases their lookbooks, because this New Zealand label has pieces that wow me season after season. You’ve seen me wearing pieces from them before (take a look here and here if you need a reminder) and loved them, so I thought I’d share a few of my favourite pieces from the latest collection – let me know what you’re loving!

Since spring cleaning my closet this year, I have tried to be more conscious of the things I’m adding in. Rather than spending small amounts of money often on things that will wear out quickly or will only last a season, I’m choosing things that will last a long time. Sometimes these things will cost a little bit more, and I need to save up for them – but trust me, the decision to invest in your wardrobe is one worth making. View Post

First Look: Chocolat SS16

First Look: Chocolat NZ Plus Size Fashion SS16

Last week I popped over to High Society’s Auckland headquarters to meet the team (including amazing designer and fellow Gisborne gal Sheryl May) and check out the new season looks for Chocolat, their plus size range. You might have seen me wearing Chocolat before, but I think that this season’s collection “High Spirits” is better than ever so I thought I’d give you a wee peek at some of my favourites. These would definitely be investment pieces for me because they’re great quality high fashion pieces, and I know I’d get a lot of wear out of them. View Post
