The other day, I posted on facebook admiring this top (& a skirt that I couldn’t find instore). Something a little different for City Chic and quite fashion forward. I decided whilst I was near a store today to go in and try it on. I often find CC sizing all over the shop, so picked this up in a L to try.

Top – City Chic – $119.95 – Tried on in a size L (Probably could go a M)

It has pros and a con for me. Mostly pros. Firstly,  I probably could have sized down. The shirt is really fitted with the bandeau being slightly stretchy. The bandeau is totally removable, which means you can wear this 3 ways (1. Shirt. 2. Bandeau. 3. Shirt + Bandeau). I also loved the hard wear details. The con is, it will have to be ironed and I don’t iron.

Next up, was Peter Alexander. I’ve always admired their range of pyjamas and lusted over many things. They always have such great collections. A few months ago, they released a new Plus Size range! YAY! Sadly, a lot of the licensed collections (Disney, Muppets, SpongeBob etc) aren’t included in the PS range, but they have just released a super cute Cat & Dog collection.

Cat Tee – Size 1 || Dog Pants – Size 2

Seeing as I’d never tried them on before, I wanted to check out the sizing. The 1+ is described as size 16-18, the 2+ as 20-22 and the 3+ as 24-26. As sizing goes, I think it’s pretty right. I am smaller on top than bottoms and found the sizing I chose comfy. The pants are slightly oversized on me (like I like pyjama pants) and have a drawstring waist. I could happily wear these lower on my hips, but pulled them up a bit to show that they are quite high waisted.

Be sure to check out the fill P.A Plus range HERE as they have even more cute Cat & Dog designs!

So here’s the question, would you choose Dogs or Cats!?

On Friday, I headed out to Westfield Southland, and after having a delicious lunch with my buddy Mallory, I went and tried on a couple of things in City Chic. It’s been awhile since I’ve been into a City Chic store, as I don’t have one near me anymore.

Top – Simple Pussy Bow Top – Size L – $69.95
Pants – Walk on by Culotte – Size 20 – $89.95

First up a top & culotte combo. I loved this top the moment it went on the site, but I don’t generally like anything with a high neck. I decided to try it on, and surprisingly, I loved it! The colour really is so beautiful!

I’ve been really enjoying the culotte trend on other people, but just didn’t know how it would suit me, so I jumped at the chance of actually trying on a pair. The pictures are pretty dodgy (sorry), so they don’t do them justice. They are really comfortable, and this pair has a metal tipped bow belt situation going on. They were probably a little longer than I’d like them to be.citychic-inthedressingroom-003

Dress – Sleeveless Wrap Dress – Size M – $99.95 – Also in Black.

This dress! THIS DRESS YOU GUYS! I love it. I’ve been loving the tie around waist trend, I already have one skirt with it! I’ve been seeing dresses around in this style, but nothing in plus size yet, so I was super excited that City Chic released this! Bang on trend! It also comes in black, but I quite like the grey in it. It has an inner slip underneath the main layer, which helps smooth things out.

Have you bought anything from City Chic lately?

Lustlist – June Edition

It’s been awhile since I did my last Lustlist! I’ve been a little uninspired with some of the fashion lately that every now and then I’d just share faves to my facebook page. If you follow me there, you’ve probably seen a few of these, but I wanted to get them all together to show them off, and add a few more pretties!
