    Where I’ve been shopping for plus size clothing

    As plus size women, we have an unspoken fashion bond, when finding something that fits like a glove we want to tell each other or when we spot a store stocking some cute items we feel like we want to spread the word because that’s hard to come by sometimes. Or is that just me? Either way, I thought I would do a “where I’m shopping” post every 2 months or so to keep you updated on where I am finding what. Pep I have been doing majority of my shopping at Pep for the last two months. I am just finding that their clothing is so suitable to my…

    Plus Size Shopping: Spree

    I have this vision of being your plus size go-to girl. I want to be the one you think of when you need a splash of body positivity, the one who you ask for suggestions on where to shop for an event or recommendations on where to buy particular clothing. I wrote a post on where I shop plus size clothes in SA but I wanted to do a more in-depth series about each store I mentioned in that post. Spree needs absolutely no introduction, in my personal opinion they are one of the leading online fashion retailers in SA because they offer a wide variety of brands, fits and…

    Eff the fashion rules

    The only thing that gets me more annoyed than body shaming is fashion rules. Especially when they are rules that apply to size.

By all means,…

    My tips for wearing sneakers with a dress

    If you follow me on Instagram you will know that my uniform is basically a dress (my new found love) and sneakers (my all-time fave) and while this combo isn’t exactly groundbreaking, it is pretty much the foundation of my personal style. I had a few requests to give you some tips on how to pair the two because it can be quite a step out of the comfort zone and I totally get that but trust me, if you step out that zone you will know the true meaning of comfort. I had to think quite hard about these tips because I honestly never gave it much thought, I…

    Screen shopping – Feb finds at Donna

    I spend so, so, SO much time browsing online clothing stores that if you asked me where to get something I would be able to tell you straight away and even be able to tell you how much it is. You could say I’m a shopping expert if there is such a thing. So, I thought I would turn it into something useful – screen shopping (it’s like window shopping but online). I will share my findings with you, give you ideas on how to wear them and where to get what bargains. It might inspire you to experiment with your style, help you find what you have been looking for…
