Recently, I received an email from a Fox in Flats friend, Katie:
“I’m a Big Mama, literally. A size 18 on a good day, usually a 20. I’ve got a couple of major problems when it comes to dressing:
- I work in advertising, where looking ‘right’ gains you respect (crazy as it seems). Most of the ‘larger’ fashion labels use horrible colours, and in my opinion, unflattering lines. I want classic stuff, like great jeans, a classic T and a boy blazer.
- Another big issue I have (ha! ha!) is that larger sizes are super expensive. I can not afford $80-100 for a top.
Specifically I’m wanting help with finding great, classic shapes (not bright colourful tents!) at good prices.”
So I turned to celebrity stylist Sophia Banks-Coloma - who counts Kirstie Alley as one of her high-profile clients – for a little expert advice. In between styling on movie sets, designing her own line and dressing countless celebs, she offered this advice for Katie:
“I like this website city chic, they have cool shapes.I think you can make some great outfits…try a blazer, skinny jeans, heels and flats, or a gorgeous maxi…”
Here are our picks of what’s on site right now:
Team this Peacock Print Kaftan Top $69.95, with some fitted jeans like these: Hi Society Skinny Jean $89.95, CityChic.com.au
The site’s got some good basic t-shirts, and tanks for layering, and be sure to check out the Sale section for a bargain.
Ladies, help out a fellow fox! Where do you shop for awesome – yet affordable – ‘curvy mama’ pieces?
