Win a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag thanks to Reebonz
I've been so busy lately it's kinda insane, if you haven't heard by now I'm now the Plus Size columnist for Shop Til You Drop magazine - which has just gone to a fortnightly mag from monthly. I am so excited to have my name in print in the largest fashion magazine in the country - talk about dream come true! Seriously, I've bought STYD mag since it's launch and for me to be writing for the mag and writing a plus size column at that is something teenage me would faint over. Plus size fashion was never in any of the mags I bought as a teen, if this column in any way helps someone build confidence like it would've helped me then it's worth all the stress. Talking about shop til you drop, boy did I ever shop til I drop over the weekend! This whole outfit is practically new, the Alpha60 pinafore dress was on sale at Alphaville and as I've been looking for a midi length pinny for a while I bought it on the spot. Unfortunately it gets wrinkly fast, but maybe with a less thick top underneath I can control the wrinkles a little? The tie-dye top is by my most favourite Japanese label ever - Mercibeacoup, who I first saw at Tokyo Fashion Week way back in 2007. Every trip back to Japan I try to buy a piece but now thanks to Pet Shop Girls, a new-ish (new to me, it opened while I was away) boutique in the city that stocks all the best of Japanese fashion, I can do so from Melbourne. Gotta love this city.

I wore this out on an art gallery hop with my sister over the weekend. There are so many amazing exhibitions on at the moment but not enough time to see them all.
I actually really want to replace these cheap white sunnies with an even better pair by Tsumori Chisato that are more oversized and cat eye that Pet Shop Girls stock, but for now these will do. The expense adds up when you take into account I need to put prescription lenses in all my sunnies, I already have two I need to do as it is.
I've been wanting an excuse to wear my Meadham Kirchhoff SS12 nail wraps for so long, I didn't want to waste them. Well this week Walter Van Beirendonck - one of my all time favourite designers, is coming to Melbourne for an exhibition and series of talks at the newly opened RMIT Design Hub so what better time than now? I love the cute vintage motifs from Meadham Kirchoff's SS12 collection and that there is also a vagina nail.
I'm so excited to be partnering with Reebonz to give away this cute over the shoulder nylon Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Preppy Sia' bag in rock lobster. I love the sporty feel of the bag but I feel that it can be styled in so many different ways. I decided to rock it with this architectural sporty pink outfit but you can tone it down or dress it up as it really is a statement piece.
My new Spice Girls inspired white velcro flatforms by Jeffrey Campbell. I remember wanting a similar pair so much when the Spice Girls were around, so excited to be able to rock them now.
