NZ plus size fashion | Firefly by Rachel Harrison

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

New Zealand Plus Size Fashion

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!

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. View Post

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
