Shapeless Fashion?

Hey there my Curvalicious Beauties. Two posts in less than a week... I must be feeling ill ;)

I happened across a few articles on Melbourne Spring Fashion week today. Firstly I was thrilled to see that Plus-sized models had taken to the catwalk all in different shapes and sizes, different looks and full of confidence.

How refreshing to see such diversity celebrated within the fashion world and I applaud all those involved. But... and this is quite a big 'but'. After looking through various collections offered up to the plus size market, I can't help but see one common theme.... Shapelessness. 

Now, I am all for not wearing skimpy, tight fitting clothes with every lump and bump on show, but why just provide a glorified potato sack? Us curvier ladies NEED some sort of definition, some shape, something to show our best features and hide the things we'd rather ignore.

I know myself that I have not bought a new outfit for a while, mainly because I am  getting increasingly frustrated with the lack of choice out there. Don't get me wrong there are a hell of a lot of fabulous ranges out there, just nothing that I feel I could wear. I find that the majority of items have quite high / round necks, which as you busty ladies will know generally make you look a lot bigger than you actually are. The other 'on trend' items are generally shapeless chiffon tunics or dresses, which again are no good for anyone with curves. Unless something has some shape to it I feel like I look about 6 months pregnant. There is either no shape or it has a dropped waist. Instead of pulling you in at at your smallest part, its showing off your largest!

When will these designers learn that we don't all want to hide under a tent? We want to appreciate and make the most of what we're given in life. I don't know about you ladies, but my boobs are about the only decent feature I have.... and who wants to hide their best feature?? 

Have any of you had the same frustrations with shapeless offerings?

Can any of you advise of fabulously shapely outfits out there?

Take care
lots of love

Hi there my lovelies

I don't know how many of you have noticed (if any) that I have not blogged for a while. I'm so so sorry. Not only have things been a little busy to say the least, when I do finally catch five minutes I seem to get writers block. Its like there is nothing even remotely interesting going on in my tiny little mind.

It doesn't help that as I'm working for what seems like a million hours a week, I don't seem to be able to keep as up to date as I'd like with the goings on in the fashion world. Note to self: make more of an effort!!

On the plus side I had a fabulous V Festival!! I took sooo many outfits as I had the luxury of poshing it up in my friends campervan. Although due to the copious amounts of vodka and sambucca I didn't really get a chance to do the full fashion parade thing lol.

So for now I will leave you with a few festival pics and I promise to make more of an effort to post more often.

Hope you like
Lots of love
