Natalie Mulford — Extra Large as Life
In addition to being a blogger, Natalie is a graphic and web designer from Sydney, Australia (soon to be Melbourne). I have been following her life and her size 22 fashion story through her blog for over four years.
What is your greatest concern about online shopping? I guess my main worry is “Will it fit?” I still love being able to go into a store and trying things on, but most online stores these days have good return policies.
What is your greatest concern about shopping locally? Finding a store that has clothing I like in my size. I’ve learnt not to look at numbers and can find things that fit in many straight sized stores, but trying to find something really trendy in plus size can be difficult.
What is your favorite store to shop locally? Hmm, I do adore a lot of City Chic stock, but I can’t afford them at full price. I’ve been picking a lot of stuff up in Target lately, they’ve released a new trendier plus size collection, and most of the straight sized section goes up to a size 20.
What are your top three online stores to shop?
ASOS — Most of my wardrobe seems to be from ASOS, I love that they have a reasonable price point, and they do some great sales. I have a premium membership which means quick and free shipping, which is always a bonus.
Modcloth — I have a few items from Modcloth and I’m super impressed with them. I was excited when they announced they were expanding their lines to include more plus sizes. If I had the money I’m pretty sure I’d buy everything on the site!
Boohoo — I love places with free shipping. Boohoo has had some really trendy pieces in their new plus section & they are a price I can afford.
Your shopping weakness? Shoes! Easily shoes! I have over 100 pairs. I can’t seem to resist shoes.
Fave color: Pink!
Fave trend: At the moment, I’m loving crop tops and holographic material. I will always love anything that sparkles.
