The weather is warming up in Australia and women are looking for hats, flicking through racks for dresses and preparing to hit to grass for a day out at the races. As a plus size woman (who is quite simply in love with the vintage look) taking inspiration from the 1950s can give you look instant glamour.
One thing I find important for Race Season is to think “Will I ever wear this dress again?”. If the answer is no, put it back on the rack NOW! Buy something you love and something you can revamp all year around. Don’t settle for something quick if you don’t love it!
My first look is based around this gorgeous Hawaiian print dress. The silhouette is flattering, with a fitted waist and a full skirt that flows around the hips and legs. It’s halter-neck will keep you comfortable and ‘slip free’ all day and is is cotton fabric means it will breath well under hot conditions. For me, this look is perfect with a gorgeous retro bag (big enough to hide a pair of flats in!) and flashy white heels.

Recently, I was flicking through a pile of paperwork on my desk when out popped a vivacious and curvy redhead. She was donned in a glorious striped one piece that had me itching to pin curl my hair and slap on my red lippie because it was all kinds of vintage beautiful.
With quick fingers I flicked onto the Internet to check out Beyond the Sea: an Australian brand (designed & made) with a focus of vintage inspired pieces that support. I met up with the brands owner and designer Kylie van Wanrooy and got to know more about this brand of swimsuits for ladies sizes 12-20.
Arms, thighs, butt, hips, boobs.
The “donut” of fat across our lower stomach.
As a woman of the “plus” community, I’ve tried my best to hide these “flaws” and contain my fat.
Lord knows what would happen if I actually unleashed my flab, my beastly rolls of lard on society!
This summer I am preparing to unveil my creamy flesh and relish in the summer sun.
I will let me midriff show, and my arms flap and the cellulite will unleash its might on the world.
I cannot believe how my style has changed and evolved over the past few months. This time last year I was sticking to my floaty shapes, avoiding pencil skirts and well, the thought of the “peplum” made me cringe. I’m not sure why, but I am loving more than ever to show my waist off and celebrate my body.
In the past year, I’ve taken 25kg off my body and tossed it aside. It’s pushed me to rethink the options in my closet, how to dress for my shape and what makes me feel good. I’ve been sticking to my comfort shade: black. While it may seem ‘Safe’, I feel sexy and fabulous when I wear black. So when Christine from Christine Kardashian offered to send me this fabulous peplum top, I was really feeling great.
For me, spring in Australia is about glorious sunny days and beautiful blooms. I love the smell of a fresh bunch of flowers beside my bed and on my days off I find myself exploring the local gardens in my area. I recently took a look around at Autograph, a popular plus size fashion label
