I am NOT a plus size mature model!

I started this blog as advertising for our online boutique The Unique You to direct traffic to our site to increase sales, but I am much more than just a small business owner trying to increase revenue!

I am a Mother, a Daughter, a Fiance,a friend, a Cancer thriver, I have experienced joy, heartbreak, uplifting experiences and some not so good ones, I have worked long hours, I have had financial hardship and I have had wins. I do not think that I am anyone special but I think that I am making the right decisions when it counts, I think that I am being the best support to my partner that I can be, I think that maybe I can write of experiences that will be of some help to others, I think that I could benefit from your input, sometimes we need to support each other even though we may not realize it..

Along with posting images from our online boutique because we really do have some beautiful fashion to share, and some clearance bargains, I will share parts of me and what happens to me in the course of living this one life..

Back to the title – no I am not a model, my image appears on our online boutique simply because our customers need to see what they look like on someone of my size and vintage, I will be 57 this coming June and I love fashion, just because we age does not mean that we need to dress differently does it? I do not think so.. We are an online retailer and are provided with images from our suppliers, most of these images have been taken using models much younger and much smaller, we use them as an example of how certain garments can look on different sizes but to not use images of me is not representing our demographic accurately.

So – until next time, this is me not being a model! http://tinyurl.com/ja449ye





Monochrome with a pop of colour

Autumn 2016 is all about monochrome with a pop of colour..New arrivals to our online boutique include a range from Kita Ku, this brand is our best seller, they never fail to deliver on style, quality and individuality.  Using natural fabrics their designs are just that little bit different, and remember the fact that as retailers we can chose which prints to have designs made for us.. We place indent orders nine months in advance, there is a high chance that whatever we order other retailers may order differently so it always pays to shop around.  Being online we can always keep our prices down as we have very little overhead.  The standout print of this season in our opinion is Lily, a stylized leaf print of black and white, we have it in pants, a dress and a maxi draped jacket, we also have black and white separates to co-ordinate and create your individual outfit, all available in sizes 14 thrIMG_0010 335x620kitaough 24 whilst stocks last.IMG_0003 KitaIMG_0007 KitaIMG_0031 Kita Ku Lily print pants and kimono jacket

Another monochrome print by Kita Ku is Shapes, the print has soft edges which gives the appearance of it being blurred, a stunning effect, it looks fabulous from the front and from the back, leave a lasting impression when walking away…IMG_0055 Kita

We have focused on stocking more natural products as we believe that they represent value for money, will last for seasons to come and are manufactured in an ethical manner with premium fabrics, we have brought in a range of cardi’s up to a maxi and scarves in rich knits of Cashmere, Merino, Lambswool, silk and cotton blends.


Thank you as always for reading, we would love for you to visit our online boutique The Unique You

What is our Clearance at least 50% off category about?

We just wanted to explain what our ‘Clearance at least 50% off’ section is all about.

When we place our indent orders for future seasons from our many suppliers we order in a full size range of each item that we purchase, when there is only one of these items left – it could be any size – we reduce the price by 50% off and move it to this category to clear.  We also put items in here which have not been such great sellers and could be a season older so they get marked down by a lot more..

You will find pieces from different suppliers that we have associations with, it all depends on how sales are, currently as of March 2016 you can find some stunning Kita Ku and their sister brand Samaya Moods bargains Kita Ku Alto print longline crinkle rayon jacket plus size   BEYOND jacketSamaya Moods Cherub print long line jacketKita Ku Opal print grandad collar shirt plus size

There are also these  from Clarity by Threadz, all at least 50% off RRPMesh tunic with feminine detailsClarity orange crush cardi perfect for travelLayering monochrome sheer tunic with leaf print from Clarity by Threadz

It pays to visit this category quite often as it does change depending on how our sales are going, some times it changes daily, we hope that your size is here and that you can pick up your favourite look for less.

Happy shopping

Last 2 days to shop at half price

Are you familiar with the Kita Ku brand?

It is full of colour, it is Australian owned, it is unique in style and cut and a lot of the prints are hand painted just for them, in plus sizes 14 through to 24, as retailers we can also chose which style we have in which print, so what we have chosen to order may not be what others stock.

Some of it probably needs to live in your wardrobe! For this weekend we have ALL Kita Ku and their sister brand SAMAYA MOODS on sale at HALF PRICE! Use code kitaku50 at checkout.
