First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you all had a wonderful night! I certainly did. Secondly, this post may be considered NOT SAFE FOR WORK, as I am just wearing a bra as a top in a few pictures. Just thought i’d warn you!
I ducked into Myer Chadstone on Wednesday to see what stock they had and if they had any awesome sale scores. I often find Myer hit or miss with clothing, but I know at least the Chadstone store offers a good variety of Plus Size Brands. As usual it’s just seeing if there is any stock that I personally like, and in a size that fits. As it was sale time, sizing was a bit more limited and clothing really was all over the place.
I feel SUPER HARD for this Estelle dress. I’m not usually a fan of deep green, but this dress was seriously HEAVEN! The detail on the neckpiece was gorgeous and I loved the back clousure. It had a matching thin tie that you could tie around your waist to give you definition if you wanted. I tried on the 18 in this and it was still roomy where it was fitted under the arms.
FIND IT – Estelle Helsinki Dress
PRICE – was $189.00 now $132.30
BOUGHT? – Nope, it sadly wasn’t in my budget, but if I had the money, I would have bought it.
This skirt was another Estelle number. The shimmer in the material was what caught my eye, and guess what, IT HAS POCKETS! I tried this on in the size 18 and it fit pretty snug around my waist, I probably would have tried on a size up if I could, but the zipper and button closure closed without problem.
FIND IT – Doesn’t seem to be online, sorry! Check out your local Myer.
PRICE – I don’t know the original price, but it was down to $50
BOUGHT? – Nope.
When I spotted this skirt on the rack, I thought maybe someone had put a straight sized item in the wrong section. But when I picked it up, I was super excited to see it was a Piper Woman! I scrambled through the sized and tried on the size 20. This skirt is amazing, the cut is different, the colours are vibrant and fun. Plus, it’s super comfy!!
FIND IT – Piper Woman Citrus Print Skirt
PRICE – was $99.95 now $49
BOUGHT? – YES! I couldn’t resist! Watch out for and outfit post soon!
I was super excited to see some 17 Sundays stock in store! I LOVE 17 Sundays so much. They didn’t have to many mid range sizes on the racks, I think due to the sales, but as I was heading into the change rooms, they have THE JACKET and the pants I’ve been lusting over on the ‘return to floor’ racks. I was hoping that the Varsity Tee & LA Afterglow Tee would be in store as they are high on my WANTlist, but they must have been snapped up in the sale.
THE JACKET – Oh man, it feels like I’ve had heart eyes for this thing for YEARS. I’ve seen it on so many of my blogging buddies, and it looks good on everyone. How does a jacket do that? Anyway, this was the first time I got to try one on, and to be honest, I almost got teary having to take it off. (Yep, i’m a weirdo!) This was a size 20.
FIND IT – 17 Sundays Take Me Away Jacket
PRICE – $159
BOUGHT? – Sadly no, but it’s on my *I must own this* list!
JEANS – I have a love/hate affair with any kind of pants. Being an apple shape, I find it hard to find pants that fit and look good on me. I desperatly wanted these to suit me, but I think I’m too short for them. Boo! They are super comfy and I love the drawstring eleasticated waist, and I loved the distressing/shredding. Whhhy can’t I find a pair of pants that I like!? I tried these on in the 20.
FIND IT – 17 Sundays Slouch Denim – Not online, check out your local Myer.
PRICE – *I THINK* they were $180ish?
BOUGHT? – Nope.
Which one is your favourite?
