    Plus size OOTD: Watercolour shift dress from Captive8

    If this shoot looks a little seasonally inappropriate it’s because these images lost themselves – and  I just unlost them. Unfortunately a bunch of the looks I shot aren’t available in stores any more – but this one is! Woohoo! I fell in love with this comfy shift dress from Captive8 for its colours – it reminds me of that Monet painting with the lilies. It’s light and breezy for the warmer months, but for the colder seasons you could pair it up with navy leggings and gold shoes, with a cream-coloured cardi and/or scarf. Dress: Captive8 Nail art: Hallo Pragtig Lipstick: Catrice Earrings: Zuri Photographer and Stylist: Simone from…

    Plus size OOTD: Black and white stripe dress from Captive8

    Another gem revived from a lost shoot! I have such a soft spot for the nautical look, which this dress totally pulls off, and all the bonus points that it’s soft and comfy too. The slightly wider neck-line and lower back gives it a classic look, which I really love – plus for all those pocket fans out there, guesss whatt ittt hassss? This one’s for anyone who’s ever told a plus size girl they can’t wear horizontal stripes. Dress: Captive8 Photographer and Stylist: Simone from Yellow Papaya

    Win one of 3 outfits with Isabel de Villiers A/W 2016

    Isabel de Villiers is probably the biggest name in South African boutique plus size fashion, and the amazing lady behind the brand was one of the very first contacts I made when starting this blog and my plus size fashion journey. I look back now and realise that when Isabel asked me to model for her A/W 2015 range it was something of a turning point – or maybe the springboard – that has lead to so many exciting opportunities since then. Suffice it to say that I owe a lot of the high points of my journey to Isabel. Anybody who has had the good fortune to meet this talented…

    #IAmMe – Evans plus size clothing is live in South Africa!

    It’s with great excitement that we can finally say – UK plus size clothing brand Evans is now live on Spree! I have vicariously been a long-time fan of the brand, seeing some of my UK plus size blogger/activist sisters taking part in their #IamMe and #StyleHasNoSize campaigns. The brand has a brilliant reputation not only for high-quality, fashion forward clothing for plus sizes, but also for championing a movement for confidence in larger women, and for empowering all women to feel beautiful – the same values that are close to my heart. So, when Spree approached me with the news that they were bringing the brand to our shores…
