(ppsst this is a scheduled post for when you miss me whilst I’m on holiday)

I was contacted to model plus-sized clothes for this blogshop. When I went, I had no clue which company this was for. I said yes for the fun of it. I’m always game for a challenge or in this case… a fun experience. Would I do it again? IN A HEARTBEAT! I love clothes and I love accessorizing. I had a field day with their accessories and shoes!

So anyway, I have since found out that the URL is www.stellarobe.com and whilst they didn’t ask me to do it, I’m recommending my favourite pieces! It was so hard trying to narrow it down to the 5 MUST-HAVES!!

1. Boston Rosette Dress

Stretchy black fabric. Didn’t cling to my fat rolls and I love how comfy it was against my skin. Great for dressing up for a night out. I suppose you could throw on a blazer and make it a power suit in your own way. Fantastic for those days you have to transition from day to night.

2. Pansy Maxi Dress

This dress is made of something similar to lycra. It’s weighted, stretchy and falls in a way it hides your flaws. Very breathe-able. Love the burgundy paisley print! I can see myself wearing this to work, on date or just hanging out with the girls. If up to me, I’d wear this with a brooch! Make it a GOLD one!

3. Easy Polka Dot Shirt

I wanted to wear this as a short dress because it was so cute. But alas! I am not as short as I thought I was. I had to put some trousers on. Okay, leggings. Also, the sleeves can go up or down! Here I wore it rolled up! This would be perfect for a lazy Sunday. Fuss free outfit. Minimal accessorizing needed!

4. Milia Military Detailed Dress

I am partial to this dress because it looks so cute on and off! It’s made of very lightweight jersey fabric. I can’t attest to the quality of the fabric used but I can say that if you get 3-4 wear out of it, it’s already worth your trouble. Great for a first date! Too cute too cute!

5. Natalie Rosette Tank Top

Such a great top! I’d buy this in multiple colours if they had them! Soft jersey fabric and super cute rosette details at the neckline. Armholes are big enough not to cut in (you know what I mean). Fantastic on its own or under a cardigan.

(This is not a paid advertorial. I didn’t get to keep any of the clothes but I got paid for modeling the them. That’s about it.)

I definitely took more photos and photographed in more clothes. I’m not sure when they will be updating their site again but keep watch! There are some other things I really like that aren’t uploaded yet. Perhaps I’d share again. Also, if you’re interested in the accessories and shoes that I wore in the pictures, check out their straight-sized sister site www.indiesin.com They ship internationally too! Wheeee!!!

The thing with blogshops though, the quality leaves much to be desired but it’s so bloody affordable and these aren’t exactly the kinda clothes you’d wear all the time. It’s trendy, it’s current and you should just jump onto the bandwagon to make it your own. Dump or pass them on after 3-4 wears and don’t feel the pinch! I should know… I have an ever-exploding wardrobe and I’m always selling or giving away my stuff.

  1. You always have a knack for looking adorable in photos! It must be your cheeky grin! Anyway, thanks for the lead on Stellarobe. Love having new places to shop!

    • Some of their stuff is really trendy and everything super affordable! So even if you wear it 3 to 4x, you’d have gotten your money’s worth. To be honest, it’s not going to be one of those forever staples, but you don’t need too many of those. Always have 4 – 5 seasonal trends in your wardrobe. Might as well make them cheap ones! heehee
