FIRST IMPRESSIONS: BOOHOO

The accessibility of trendy/fast fashion for plus size gals is improving all the time – think of Showpo extending to a Size 20, or the options available on Fashion Nova, Shein, or even ASOS. One brand I’d heard a lot about but never tried as boohoo. I always thought of them as a “skinny girl…

ONE ITEM FIVE WAYS: NYATA, JUNE 2018

Hi all, long time no blog post! Coming to you with the first in an exciting (well, exciting for me, and hopefully for you!) series of blog posts I’m going to be doing every month in collaboration with Nyata. For those who don’t know Nyata, it’s an amazing Australian-designed, ethically-manufactured line, catering to sizes 8-30!…

BAXTER BLUE: TESTED

There are very few jobs these days that don’t require some level of screen-time, especially if you work in any kind of office environment, you’re probably like me and spend 8+ hours a day under fluorescent lighting staring at a computer screen.

WEEKLY ROUND-UP #1

Welcome to my weekly round-up! Rather than blogging about my individual outfits each day (which normally I post to instagram anyway), I’ve decided I’m going to do a regular Sunday evening round up of my whole weeks outfits. I’ll include links where items are still available, as well as sizes, brands, and prices. In future…

ONE OUTFIT, THREE LOOKS

One thing I really love about clothes and styling is how an outfit can change with a simple tuck or different accessory. To me, the best pieces in my wardrobe are the most versatile – the ones that go with these pants, and that skirt, and can be tucked in or worn loose, to the…
