After an unexpectedly long summer, it is finally starting to cool down in Sydney. This means that winter fashion has well and truly taken hold – my city has become a bland sea of black and grey.
I bloody hate that about fashion; the idea that brights are for the warmer months and muted tones are for the cooler months. It’s depressing enough that there’s a chill in the air, that the days are shorter and that my skin has become a dry scaly mess without me dressing like someone died. If anything, I need to see more colour to distract me from how long I have to wait until summer rolls around again.
A pox on your muted tones, winter collections. Shove this outfit up ya.
I have been waiting weeks for it to be cool enough to show you this amazing jacket from LA Vintage. I’ve been after an 80s leather cropped biker jacket for as long as I can remember and I finally have one in my pudgy little hands. I’ve mentioned my soft spot for cock rock before and this jacket screams early Mötley Crüe. Needless to say, I love it.
LA Vintage are the only online vintage retailer I’ve seen that offer a plus size section. (If anyone knows of any others, please tell me in the comments!) Unfortunately, it is for the inbetweenie rather than the deathfat; the bust, waist and hip measurements only go up to 50 inches. That said, they also have a fantastic accessories section and it’s impossible to be sized out of a super cute handbag.
