In a few hours time I'll be boarding a plane on my way to Shanghai to witness a long and dear friend finally get hitched!!! I can hardly contain my excitement and hopefully I can take a few snaps when I'm overseas and upload my memories along the way.

Thank you Shilla the Label for keeping me nice and toasty in this oversized cardi for my trip. It'll be my Shanghai uniform, no doubt!

I'm certain after putting this top on that this winter I'll be living in Staple the Label. Not only do they have a great range of rib roll necks, they haven't stepped a foot wrong in monochrome stripes their selection of monochrome stripes and layers... one of my favourite combinations!! 

To keep it simple and to let the stripes do all the talking, I've gone borderline labcoat with my white on white. What do you think, yay or nay?

Have you ever bought something you saw online only to realise that it doesn't look nearly as good on you as it did on the size XXS model wearing it on the website? Well, I'm a self confessed vertically-challenged-and-pear-shaped-shopaholic and I hear ya sista! I love online shopping for its convenience but it's hard to imagine how certain outfits will look on my body shape compared to the tall, leggy blonde who has probably never had to pay for a drink in her life, wearing it in the picture.

This is why I've come to love Sizeable. Sizeable recognises that all women come in different shapes and sizes, their website features a range of models with different body types wearing clothes available to buy from the Sizeable online store including some of my favourite Australian labels: Ruby Sees All, Keepsake The Label and Black by Geng.

When shopping on Sizeable, I simply click on "Pick Your Model", find the model that best fits my body shape (each model even has her own profile and measurements so if you're not sure you can measure yourself and compare it to the model's profile) and for the remainder of my shopping experience, I get to look at realistic representations of how certain outfits would look like on an average gal like me!

Now THAT is how all online stores should be, don't you think?
