In South Africa, the average size of most women is 16 or 40. And yet most brands stock sizes that end at XL which usually translates to a size 14 or 38! Yes, you read right. We live in a world where size 12 is considered large. Size 12. To me and my size 44 ass, this seemed ridiculous, by that logic, I was an XXXXL.
All women want workout gear that is well-fitted, functional and my gosh, dare we say, cute, but, for plus size women, this is looking for a needle in a haystack.
Did anyone else feel like March was a GREAT shopping month? Aside from the fact that there were plenty of wonderful sales, I also discovered a few rad products I had never tried before.
Today I am going to be sharing five moments that cover the diversity of my work life and my current wardrobe. Dressing for work can feel like a challenge but since I started dressing to a “personal uniform”, it’s a challenge I have been comfortable rising to.
One of the things I love about living in Cape Town is winter. I love that it gets frigidly cold, but I can still get away with wearing a dress and stockings. Our wonderful climate gives my summer wardrobe amazing longevity. All it takes is a bit Pinteresting and a little creativity.
This in between stage of the seasons is always hardest for me. I never know what to wear and in Cape Town, where we experience all seasons in one day, it is especially difficult. I am a winter person but I also get hot often so I cannot layer too much. When shopping for jerseys and coats, I usually lean towards the lighter knits and weaves. I am desperate for a new coat and like most of you, I just cannot spend thousands on it. So I went to peep at my favourite online stores and a few that you had recommended as well, to see what was available.
