Playsuit: Barkins

Shoes: Diana Ferrari


It’s been hot, hot, hot in Melbourne for the last few days of my holidays and I’ve spent most of it sprawled on the couch making my way through a teetering pile of books. I had grand plans to do some Serious Shopping during the last week, but the only foray I managed was to Melbourne’s Southwharf DFO where I picked up this spiffy little playsuit for a song at Barkins.

It’s of that terrifying short-shorts variety that I find so intimidating, but over a string of 30+ degree days I threw my insecurities to the wind and wore it out. In public. Yay me!

In other news… I’m in this month’s Cosmo Magazine! Truly! It’s a little bit exciting to be in a local Australian glossy magazine and Cosmo’s always had a better-than-average reputation for using more realistic bodies on their pages, so I’m very grateful for the opportunity.

  3. I think you look marvelous! Hey, there’s nothing wrong with showing a little skin if the day is scorching hot! Congrats on the Cosmo spot! Since we won’t be getting a peak at your Australian issue here in the States, can you tell us a little more about it please? 🙂

    1. Thanks Bella!
      I’m going to see if my scanner’s prepared to load it into an image that’s readable and if so I’ll pop it up on the blog. It’s an article about plus-size blogging

  4. Congratulations on the Cosmo placement! I’m going to have to check it out – it’s not on my usual rota of reading so will make a special effort!

    Love the little shorts suit! I’dbe too scared to wear something that short but you have such great legs – it looks fabulous on you!
