Aussie Curves – Favourite Store

I’m in two minds about my favourite store.

The store I likely buy most of my clothes from is City Chic, mostly because I know they are going to fit and the clothes suit my style.

I remember when the first stores opened in New Zealand – I fell in love immediately with all the clothes and I haven’t stopped shopping there since. Finally there was a store which had stylish clothes that actually fit me, it was amazing. I still have the first dress I ever bought from the Lambton Quay store. I haven’t worn it in years, but I can’t bear to part with it.

Although I have started to shop around a bit more and buy online, I probably still buy at least one thing from City Chic every few weeks. I can’t help it.

Aussie Curves – Nature

This week was my first week back at work, so I haven’t had too much time to even think about how Nature could be incorporated into Fashion for Aussie Curves.

But as Man Piece and I were out for our walk around the waterfront today, I realised that my ducky jacket, as it is now known, could definitely be within the definition of nature.

So on our way back, I got Man Piece to snap a couple of pictures.

Plus there was some nice trees around to use as the backdrop.

There were even real ducks right by where we stopped!

Hopefully I will be a bit more organised this coming week and make sure I get some photos earlier in the week.

Farmers plus size changing room round-up

Queen’s Birthday weekend has just passed here in New Zealand and everywhere was having a sale. I decided to pop down to Farmers, which had up to 50% off women’s clothing. Also being back in NZ for two months now I wanted to gauge what the clothes are like in Farmers, as I haven’t shopped there for around two years.

If you are not from NZ, Farmers is a main-stream department store. Similar to Myer. It has all the make-up counters as well as clothing and home wares.

I headed down to the Lambton Quay store to have a look around. I have to say, I’m not a huge fan of the Lambton store. Everything feels shoved in there without much thought or space to move around. Even more so in the plus size section. There is no signage saying the clothes there are plus size and it is a very small space, more like a corner. The stands are jam-packed with clothes and are ridiculously close together. But somehow I managed to squeeze through the stands and find a few pieces to try on.
