Guest Post: Jess

Life has been hectic since Uni recommenced and normally a guest post lets you have a bit of time off before your next post, however, I've been so busy I've even forgotten to post the lovely Jess' guest post!

Jess is a gorgeous blogger and as soon as I came across her blog (mind, body, shop) I knew I wanted her to guest post for me! She agreed! I'll stop babbling on now and let you read her super interesting and super DIFFERENT post! In a world where fashion seems to be about 'size 0' and tiny frames and long legs, its refreshing to see people inspired by plus size models such as Robyn Lawley. I've also included a lil interview with the lovely lady herself. I recommend taking a look at her blog and being inspired by her style and her loveliness!

Lawley is the first plus-sized model for Ralph Lauren.


Australia’s plus-size model Robyn Lawley has become the first plus-sized model feature in a modelling campaign for Ralph Lauren, which reflects the fashion label's desire to target curvier women and is proving that big is still beautiful.

Lawley, a healthy size 14 (size 10 US) appeared on the Good Morning America recently, where she told of her struggle with weight and her battle with an eating disorder when she signed to a modelling agency at age 16. Lawley said she felt pressured to diet and skipped meals and even eating nothing at times in order to lose weight. Eventually Lawley gave up trying to be a model and talked of how she “fell in love with food all over again.” She then began to see that plus-size models were doing well and decided to give modelling another go.

Since returning to the runway and as plus-size model, Lawley has been on the front cover of Vogue Italia and French Elle and has been the face of several campaigns such as UK’s lingerie brand Boux Avenue.



This is evidence of the fashion world slow but steady changing attitude, showing that normal size can be beautiful too.

Meet Jess.

1. Tell us a bit about yourself :)

My name is Jess and I am a personal style blogger at MindBodyShop. I am 20-something law student, lover of fashion and diehard shopaholic. 

2. How would you describe your style in a nutshell?
I would describe my style as girly and classic but with a bit of edge!


3. Do you prefer to wear casual clothes or 'going-out' clothes? And why?

I love to bring it when I am going out! Nothing feels better than glamming up before a big night and feeling like a million dollars. I love casual clothes too, but I usually live in my Jeans and tees. 


4. Who are you most inspired by fashion-wise?
Olivia Palermo is my style icon

5. What are your staple items for an outfit?
My gold Michael Kors Choreograph watch

6. What inspired you to start blogging?
I just love fashion and shopping and I just wanted to connect with other who share the same interest.

7. What are your other interests besides fashion and blogging?
I love to draw, sketch and paint and I also enjoy the occasional kick boxing class.

8. What's your favourite 'getting-ready-for-a-night-out' song?
Black Eyed Peas – Weekends (before Fergie)

9. If you could be anyone, who would it be and why?
I am happy just being myself. But if I had to choose I guess I would like to be Sophia Vergara for the day! I just think she’s just so amazingly beautiful a person who exudes confidence (which is a characteristic I lack!)

10. Finally, give us a random fact about yourself :)
I am obsessed with cats. I have four at home!
