City Chic Comes to America

Sorry for not updating for a while! Things have been pretty hectic and I haven't been wearing many "blog worthy" outfits, but if you miss me, follow me on tumblr @gabifresh! I update that daily and sometimes share what I'm wearing, even if it's casual.

If you haven't heard yet, the Australian plus-size retailer City Chic recently launched in the United States! They were one of our sponsors for the YFF Conference, and each of us received a $200 gift card that I recently cashed in for some great items. I got the Contrast Dress (can't wait to wear it this Spring), the Palm Tree Burnout Tee, the Mesh Skater Top, and the Roxanne Dress which I wore last night to a friend's birthday celebration. I love the mesh top and the shoulder detail--the perfect addition to spice up a little black dress. I wore it with my new platform wedges from Forever21 that I absolutely adore. I didn't have time to do your typical blogger shoot, so I just took a few quick shots before heading out the door:

  9. Greetings, Gabi! :) Your outfit is truly lovely. The dress is fantastic along with those super-cute wedge sandals. I think the beading accents on the dress really add a kick of charm to this otherwise lovely all-black look. Great stuff yet again!

  18. Lookin' good, girl! I bought the same platforms wedges two months ago but I can't get the courage to wear them until all snow and possibilities of salt staining the suede are eliminated! You're making my heart ache to wear them! <3

  21. Such a pretty top. I love the detail at the shoulders and the sexy but tasteful sheer neckline. We curvy girls like to feel sexy too. Cheers!

  22. I've wanted this dress ever since the launch of the US online store, I even had it on my christmas wish list. Now that I see it on you I know it looks just as good as the model portrays it to be. I need this dress in my life. BTW, I love those shoes, heading over to F21 to see if they still have it in stock.

  28. I bought the Contrast dress. It is super cute. I love the one you are wearing, but I'm not sure if I can pull it off. It would be a Spanx required dress for me.

  29. This is a good posting, I was wondering if I could use this write-up on my website, I will link it back to your website though.

    It's a nice site where people can do match making and look for their bride or grooms.
