It’s been a hot minute since we did our last round up of highlights from the plus size community, but we are back with all the best bits of June!
Navabi Mock Magazine Covers WOW us all
— navabi (@navabiFashion) June 20, 2017
First up Navabi released another of their wondrous mocked up magazine covers, this time featuring SMB fave Nerd About Town on a fake Elle. Honestly I haven’t bought a fashion magazine in a long, long time, but this cover would make me reach out and grab it!
Nerd About Town, Ultimate Style Queen
Speaking of Nerd About Town, she’s been absolutely nailing it this month with incredible outfit posts. I could have shared any look she shared in June, but I think this co-ord is the one that really stands out to me because it’s so unlike any summer looks I’ve been seeing on plus size blogs this year. It’s effortlessly chic and also looks super comfy which is always a good thing!

Can you believe that Geri has been sharing her daily outfit looks for over 1000 days now on instagram? She shares all her daily looks, from casual, to work wear, to those more glam occasions, and seeing so many day to day outfits is SO inspiring. So often we only share our tip top chic wears, when the reality is that it isn’t how we dress day to day, Geri shares it all.
Manners x Curvy Campbell
One of our most adored plus size models, Olivia Campbell, released her first ever clothing collaboration with Manners Wear! It’s only available for pre-order right now, but we are already excited to see all the looks people will style the pieces with. The colours are bright and in your face, and the pieces are all classic, wearable basics that could be worn in so many ways! Bright, bold, essentials for any plus size fashionista’s wardrobe.
She Might Be Back!
Our very own Georgina Grogan had us all so jealous of her holiday looks and wishing we could look so cool and hot at the same time! She was serving redhead summer perfection and I found myself checking out her instagram every day to see what she wore next.
Sam’s Rocking the Bold Looks!
Sam of Fatty Boom Tatty always shows me something I wouldn’t have expected, and I never expected to fall head over heels with a crochet dress that she wears in this blog post! The pink hair, the pink flowers, everything is perfection.

One of the most beautiful shoots ever?
We were all gushing over Hayley’s incredible shoot with Lace & Pearl and her beautiful words that came with it on her Instagram page. This really is one of the most beautiful shoots we’ve seen, especially with Hayley being a size 22/24! We want lots more of this!
Health Trolls are Annoying AF
We’ve had enough of health trolls and this post by Becky is so awesome! Why Health Trolls can Kiss My Fat Ass, is a must read.
The Male Gaze…
Former She Might Be Contributor and full time bad-ass Perelandra of Pamper and Curves, wrote a really thought provoking article on Body Positivity and The Male Gaze. It’s another one that you definitely need to read, and whilst you’re there, go and read Perelandra’s entire blog because you’ll find other incredible posts like, Rejecting The Roles Of The Fat Friend And Comedy Side Kick.
And finally, June wouldn’t have been amazing without this…

And just for a giggle, I can’t resist sharing this photo of Amanda Apparel. I love a fashion blogger who doesn’t take themselves too seriously!
July is already shaping up to be stellar, I can’t wait to see what our community comes out with next!
