As most of you would know, I have kept my blog makeup focused as well lets face it its my thing, but so is fashion. To be more specific plus sized fashion as I am a plus size beauty and proud of it. So I figured now was as good a time as any to jump ship and start a new section on my blog dedicate to all the beautiful clothing and accessories that share my makeup filled world.

I am really fortunate to have incredible friends that share my love of fashion and have inspired me to move in this direction, so here it goes my first plus size fashion post.

Last friday was the brisbane launch of the talented Nikki from Styling you book following on from her popular blog series.

I struggled with what to wear to such an event, I knew it would be full of fashion forward people and the weather was not the best and I wanted to be fashionable yet comfortable. (pretty much my aim everyday)

After speaking to my dear friend Melissa fromSuger coat it about what to wear and apart from telling me in slightly mocking tones that she would be wearing the new 17 sundays faux leather joggers, (Yes i was coveting them like the rest of the plus size world.) I still had no idea what I was wearing.

It was quite cold and a night time outing so I figured skinny jeans and boots were a win.  I paired my city chic jeans with a cute tank top and striped cardigan from Autograph. I cinched the waist with a cute belt also from autograph and wore my brown knee high boots either from city chic or autograph again, I cant remember and the print has worn off the soles.

The Birkin also made an appearance, in all its orange glory.

So on to the event, It was held at the beautiful state library building in brisbane city. Melissa and I drove down from Gympie friday afternoon, picking up our friend Amanda along the way

We arrived and acquainted ourselves with the bar and mingled until the formalities started. It was great to catch up with some of our other bloggie friends and meet some new ones. The night was a huge success and if you haven’t already pick up a copy of Nikki’s book, it has been a great bed time read for me, with lots of practical help and ideas.

"can you take my photo with Nikki?" apparently not lol
