    Plus size OOTD: A spot of polkadots

    So, we all know I’ve got a soft spot for dots. (See what I did there). So when one of my favourite designers has a dress, with spots, in one of my favourite colours, it’s just a guaranteed win. This pretty wiggle frock from Revelation Fashion hugs all the right places, and will get a lot of wear come summer. Would love to pair it up with a white belt and little denim jacket. (if only my wardrobe had everything my heart desired ever). I added some vintage Italian peeptoes for a little pinup authenticity 😉 Dress: Revelation Fashion Makeup: Delicia Krause Photographer: Alison Westwood Shot on location at Banksia…

    Plus size style file: Anna of Glitter and Lazers

    For my answer to Woman Crush Wednesdays, I’m starting a series of plus size Style Files with bloggers, both local and international, that I love. For my very first one, I could think of none better than my InstaSoulMate, Glitter! From the minute I discovered her on Instagram, I’ve been crazy in love with this funky, US-based blogger and yogi. Not only does she really know how to rock the funkiest of fashions, but she is a total inspiration for being fit and healthy at any size. Plus she makes me lol a whole lot, which is pretty high on my hierarchy of needs. Check out my Q&A with Anna…

    Plus size OOTD: The modern day power dress

      “Dunn, dunnn dun-dun, dunnnn, dunnnn dun-dun, I’VE GOT THE POWERRR!” That’s the song that plays in my head when I wear this tulip dress from Revelation Fashion. (If it’s stuck in your head now, you can listen to it here). It’s something about the shoulder pads, and the perfect draping. I feel like I could take on the boardroom, or make a carnivorous venus fly-trap with an insatiable thirst for human flesh submit to my will. (There’s was something about the leafy greenhouse we were shooting, ok?). Total bonus that it’s really flattering to the curvy figure, and my favourite shade of blue. What y’all think?

    Plus size OOTD: The Layered Maxi Dress

    Yaaaaaaaay for new blog post! These shirt/dresses/maxi dress with a split (don’t really know what to call them!) have become pretty popular on the plus size fashion scene. I fell in love with the red of this one, and thought I’d give styling it a bash. Do I remember correctly that this style was around in the ’90s? At any rate, it has that vibe for me. There’s something a bit tomboy-ey about it; feminine with an edge, which as you know I love. So I played up the ‘tough chick’ angle and paired it with some combat boots and kickass steampunk jewels, and am pretty chuffed with the result. What…

    Plus size OOTD: The Beetlejuice skirt

    How is it that I spend so much time thinking about the blog, but the posts materialise so infrequently? Despicable. This striking black and white stripe skirt from Revelation Fashion give me great glee. Natch, I’ve dubbed it the ‘Beetlejuice skirt’. (Could black and white stripes really ever hold any other significance?) I love the clash of a classic cut with an edgier print. The result: whimsical. Pair with some rocking, unusual jewelry, a microprint clutch bag, and some gorgeous surrounds, and what you have is a big ‘ol puddle of fun!   Skirt: Revelation Fashion Clutch: Spree Ring: Like Clockwork Steampunk Jewelry Makeup: Delicia Krause Photographer: Alison Westwood Shot…
