My obsession with 1950s dresses continues, and while I cannot find (or if I do, afford) dresses from that era in my size, I am taking full advantage of brands such as Hell Bunny. Why, you ask? When I started my Hell Bunny collection only a handful of months ago, this was the first dress I wanted. I honestly wanted it so hard that it hurt when I couldn’t find it in my size. I searched everywhere in Australia but had no luck. When I was told they were no longer making it, I almost gave up my search.
Finally, the search continued when I found a smaller size and decided to give it a crack. What do you know?! It fit and felt fabulous. I ordered one straight away from Craig at Ruff n Ready and before I knew it, the search had ended and I owned my dream dress.
I am in love with Mod Cloth right now. The website has such a beautiful selection of pieces in all sizes, and with winter moving in for the Northern Hemisphere, some beautiful coats and layering pieces. The team at Mod Cloth contacted me to style one of their latest pieces, the Call of the Styled
Until yesterday, I had never been to the races.
With an upcoming birthday, I decided to spoil myself with a new dress and go out with the Aussie Curves ladies to celebrate racing fashion at the Hawkesbury Races Ladies Day.
Last week I was invited to an event in the city that was all about celebrating plus-size curves. It was an odd feeling, because most of the events or Press Releases I receive are for standard sized clothing labels. So, when Target contacted me I jumped at the chance and took myself into The Establishment in Sydney.
We are told to love and nurture our body and yet everyday, we flip open a magazine or turn on the television and we are flooded with bodies that are made to be superior.
Slim models, perfect tans, white teeth and gorgeous hair fill my Instagram feeds. They flood my Pinterest boards. They continue post after post after FaceBook post.
Not when you are 5kg lighter.
Not when you get a faux tan.
Not when you get out of your trackies and into a frock.
Not when you straighten your hair.
Not when you wear lippie.
Not when you take a selfie.
And especially when you’re having a “good” day.
There is a new app called BeauCoo that allows us to all celebrate the body we are in right now. I’ve been using BeauCoo for a few weeks to test it out, and to put it simply, I am in love. Somehow, I think you will love it too….
