Business meets pleasure in this awesome curvy jacket from Dream Diva.
I remember how excited I was when I saw it – finally, someone was doing business-wear in plus sizes that weren’t all about boxy shapes and shoulder pads.
Of course, I don’t work in an office, so it took me a few weeks to convince myself that it would a be a Good Investment (and I’ve barely worn it since then, so it looks like I may have been fooling myself after all) but I know a few curvy office girls who were over the moon when this popped up on the Dream Diva website who no doubt have been wearing it regularly since then.
Sadly Dream Diva seems to have gone somewhat the way of City Chic, and aren’t doing that much professional-wear anymore.
What is it with Australia’s Plus Size labels and party clothes? Every shop for curvy girls seems to cater exclusively for either older women with a penchant for hanky hems and random dangly bits or party girls in their teens and early twenties who like nothing more than strapless party dresses, boob tubes and denim mini skirts.
Do we really not have the market to sustain plus size labels that have something that falls in the middle? Something like a Witchery for girls that don’t have the proportions of a twelve year old boy? Any ideas?
