I’m about to tell you about my secret clothing heaven.
As we speak I am a ‘plus’ size girl. I’m also a short girl. Off the rack clothes that I enjoy wearing doesn’t really happen often. But I must dress, so I do the best I can.
My mother introduced me to a place that I have come to love. It’s a factory store in the backstreets of Meadowbank, NSW. It’s called Studio 10. I love this place!
Their range has everything from teenie size 6 evening glam, to voluptuous 26 office wear. They definitely have something for everyone! (Even some menswear!)
Now, being a factory store, it can be a bit hit and miss. Thankfully every time I have gone shopping there, I’ve walked away a very happy camper. I’ve found everyday comfy black dress pants, shirts and tops, and on my most recent trip… a waistcoat! I love waistcoats. Takes me back to my teens 😉
It may not always have what you’re looking for, but when you can pick up 4 tops, 1 shirt, 2 cami’s and a waist coat (that would otherwise retail for $370) for $80, there’s really not much complaining to be done. While they’re not necessarily my ideal wardrobe, they look good and fit my current lifestyle. As I lose weight, my wardrobe will change too.
Very little needs to be done to them too. One needs buttons replaced and another needs minor sewing done to improve the fit. All in all I’m happy with my cross season shirts/tops. Yay for new clothes!
