This pretty little daisy print number is from Leona Edmiston’s exclusive line for Myer. I’m going to be honest here, the quality’s not a patch on the regular Leona Edmiston clothing; the jersey’s already fluffing and pilling where it rubs against other items of clothing, and I’ve only worn it twice! But the fit’s good, the style’s lovely, and the print’s pretty cute too. Plus, it was much cheaper than the usual LE lines, so perhaps it’s a case of “you get what you paid for”.
It’s sleeveless, and will be excellent in summer, but it’s cold again in Melbourne at the moment, so I’m taking advantage of my bright yellow cardigan and shoes to pick out the yellow details in the daisies.
Meanwhile, today I discovered something really lovely.
One of my readers nominated me for the Navabi Curvy Blog Award!
This amazing competition is being run until the 30th of November, and the winner will be treated to London Fashion Week trip with a friend…. or a sister.
(This is where I start twisting your arm:)
My little sister, Mae, has never been overseas and one of her lifelong dreams is to see squirrels. One of MY lifelong dreams is to see plus size fashion not only embraced, but absorbed into the general fashion world, and Navabi’s been at the forefront of that. They’ve got a fabulous online boutique with serious designer names like Elena Miro, Robert Cavalli and Anna Scholz and they run a great magazine featuring plus size fashion spreads (where the models are actually CLOTHED! Amaze!)
Both squirrels, and Plus Size fashion are in London in February next year, and with your help (and hopefully if Mae’s chemotherapy schedule allows for it) so could my sister and I be.
I would love to take her.
And I would love to bring you back the exciting new things happening in the fashion industry on the other side of the world.
