I am a proud Australian.
I don’t have a flag in my front yard and I certainly don’t have the Southern Cross tattooed on my body, but I do get very emotional and proud when I hear a fellow Australian is starting a brand.
I love supporting Australian brands and more importantly, Australian production. I know how expensive it can be but I want to support and nurture the brains behind these brands.
When I heard about a new label starting called TopChick, I got excited. An exclusive, Australian designed and made label for sizes 18-26 I put it in my diary straight away. I took a long drive to the fashion show launch where a huge crowd of family and friends came to celebrate Vicki and her designs.
Click through to see more of the beautiful clothes and to hear about the brand, as I caught up with Vicki to talk about TopChick and what it means for Australian plus size women.
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.
