City Chic, so Cosmopolitan!

I am a magazine junkie, I love everything about them! I love their glossy pages (oh and the matte pages of the indie mags) filled with sparkly pretty things to buy. To be inspired by writers, photographers and life stories. To keep up with current trends and social news... I even like the ads!

In the last few months that I've really started to get back into fashion, I've noticed a tremendous change in media and it's views on plus size models, garments and body issues, almost all of which is in a positive light I'm pleased to say. Shop til you Drop regularly features items that go above a size 18 and I was pleasantly surprised as I flipped through the March 2011 issue of Australian Cosmopolitan, to find an editorial spread featuring not only a plus size model but an outfit by City Chic! Meet Robyn, she's a size 14 (City Chic size XS), 182cm tall with size 11 feet... not to mention a figure to die for!
