    Plus size style file: Lisa from Cherry Lisa

    It is my great pleasure to showcase the awesome style of another lovely local lass – Cherry Lady Lisa of Durban. A little bit goth, a little bit pinup, a little bit geeky  – I could just gobble this lady up in one, smooth bite! (Does that make me sound creepy? Good.) Here’s what I found out about her: About Cherry Lady Lisa: My name is Lisa Hayes Foley, also known as Cherry Lisa. I am a textile designer and I own and run Frockabilly SA, an artisanal store specialising in handmade cute & geeky hair bows.

    Plus size style file: Monique from Monrobe by Monique De Villiers

Like so many of the people I stalk, I discovered Monique on Instagram – and have been an avid follower ever since. To be honest, one of the things I love most about Monique is how completely different her style is than mine. I love the bright, funky colours and patterns she wears, and how chic and mature she looks (let’s face it, I look like I’m dressed up for a theme party most of the time). Not to mention my hair envy over her gorgeous locks, and her drool-worthy nailart. Let’s find out…

    Plus size style file: Katie from Life Through Kat Eyes

    And so my #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday) series continues – this week with another stunner I obsessively follow on Instagram. I’m head over heels for Katie’s wearable pinup look. She has exquisite taste, and really knows how to dress to make herself look good.     Let’s find out a bit more about this hot tamale: About Katie from Life Through Kat Eyes Hi!  I’m Katie, a 31yo Kiwi girl living in the land of Aus. I’m a fashion-obsessed, sometimes blogger with a love of pinup style with a modern twist, and ’40s and ’50s hair!  I’m an inbetweenie, meaning I fall between plus sizing and straight sizing, which is…
