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
As well as shopping at Torrid on Black Friday, I picked up a few pieces from some stores that are old favourites – ASOS, Society+ and Yours Clothing. These are some of the stores that I shop at most often, because they are reasonably priced, have free or reasonable shipping, and often have specials. Another big drawcard for me to shop with these stores is that they are usually pretty consistent with sizing. View Post
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. View Post
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
Whether you’re a size 6, a size 16 or a size 26 I think that every bride deserves to feel like a million dollars on her wedding day. I’ve had a few friends who have had horrible experiences when they’ve gone to try on dresses because there haven’t been any above a size 12 to try on and the sales assistant has been a dick about it resulting in bride in tears and no wedding dress, and I want to let you know that it doesn’t have to be like that!
