Beth Ditto Plus size Fashion Collection

Beth Ditto announced her first plus size fashion collection this month, being launched at her own website bethditto.com. This time ’round we get to see some exciting fashion elements nicely done from the singer of Gossip Youth. Being a rocker herself, her collection is heavily infused with the rock ‘n roll elements, at the same time some elegant everyday essentials can also be seen. The most talked about piece from her collection is the Oversize Tee she collaborated with Jean Paul Gautier  and it has his signature bustier in graphic on it. Many plus size models and bloggers are showcasing their take on how to style it, and it’s an amazing start for her collection! This Tee costs USD150.00 and generated great responses, as it’s something new we don’t get see everyday in the plus size fashion world. And I can see that plus size customers are increasing willing to spend a bit more money on the product when it comes to the right items. So, please marketers, don’t say that we cannot afford anything nice being plus size, and start making nice things for us already! 🙂 Source: Beth Ditto

UK Brand Phase Eight in Hong Kong (size 6-16)

Curvy girls I have some good news for you! English brand Phase Eight has opened 3 stores in Hong Kong by Rue Madame Fashion Group (actually since last year!) and they carry feminine and elegant pieces from UK size 6-16. The selection in the store offers mostly work wear, shift dresses and some evening gowns, These are the things I see lack of in the marking in Hong Kong so they come in quite handy if we need to get some party wear etc. Some of the styles are bigger than others and they can probably fit up to size UK20 (US16) so go try them out for the ultimate experience! I was not aware at first about the sizes they have so I visited one to make sure. The friendly staff told me when new arrivals come in, every size would have size 16 available, which is very good and not discriminating, so kudos to Rue Madame!                     As I am writing this post, I feel really excited to confirm to you that there is another brands here carrying up to size 16 apart from MnS, I basically feel lucky

Tsim Sha Tsui K11 Mall – Dry-aged Beef Burgers and size 42 Shoes @ Oriental Traffic!

Hey girls, it’s the weekend! Many of us has been working hard all week and it’s time to relax and forget about work for a bit(if you are in the line of work when you get the weekends off)!  Tonight, I went to an area in Hong Kong called Tsim Sha Tsui, to the opening of currently the best burger place – The Butchers club. Why? Because they are the only place where their patties are made with dry-aged beef (enough said). It is located at a shopping mall called K11; and since its their opening, they are serving free mini burgers and Peroni beer for a few hours to celebrate! 🙂 To top it up, one of the few good bands in Hong Kong, also a couple of guys I know personally, are playing a gig as well. The band is called The Anello; Jeff on vocal and korg machine, Michal on trumpet and keyboard , together they play some very uplifting tunes, so it’s a pretty good partay if you ask me! And while I was visiting the mall, to my surprise, I saw a new shop there offering shoes from size 34-42. “Oriental Traffic” is a Japanese

Sera Lilly Curve

2015 is the most exciting year for plus size girls yet, as everyday, there are new brands sprung up and I can see the designs of plus size clothing keep improving and upgrading. Gone were the days when you can’t even find any decent clothes for a night out or a romantic date! Today I am going to introduce to you a brand from New Zealand called Sera Lily Curve – founded by NZ fashion designer / blogger Sera Lilly (ig:Kiwicurves) and his brother Josh in April this year, whom I followed for quite sometime now. I was quite surprise that the brand has come together and already established in a short period of time, I basically watch her whole sourcing period to launching within half a year. It also shows how much they are passionate and experienced about this business ( a big plus point!) Josh (Left) Sara Lilly (Right) Moreover, never have I thought that one of the most fashion forward plus size brand is happening nearer to me than in the US, so I am very excited and cannot wait to try on some of their cute playful designs. Here are a few looks I like the

Women’s Plus Size Work Clothes / Workwear

Hey There! I just learned about this new brand called Universal Standard, seems like a beautiful collection of higher quality products. The coat above and its little red detail tell it all (although the campaign is a little too subtle and dark, I cannot really take a good look at the overall craftsmanship of the collection) , but you can be the judge and below is the rest of the collection. Talking about work clothes for plus size women, just like any other plus size fashion or clothing, there aren’t too many choices out there, but of course you still have some options and it’s not like you won’t find clothes to wear 😉 Carmakoma The best established brand goes to Carmakoma from Denmark for it’s elegant design that fits properly on plus size women. Violeta by Mango The spanish brand was one of the first to use a plus size model in their campaign back in 2007 ( I still have the hard copy booklet!), but not until last year, they launch the plus size line Violeta. Just like Mango, it covers all segment for plus size women – casual wear, party wear and also included workwear. There are also
