Hi, I'm Monique! 

Welcome to Dressing up! I'm Monique Doy, a Mum in my 30's and a fashion enthusiast, living in Auckland, New Zealand. 

I truly believe that style has no size, and my mantra is; You ARE the special occasion.

My job is to help you find fashion that fits and makes you feel great, with a focus on inbetweenie and plus size fashion. Inbetweenies are the women who as sizes 14-18 sometimes fall between straight size and plus. 

My body has done a lot for me, including giving me two beautiful babies, so I intend to decorate it and celebrate it! 

Dressing Up was born out of frustration that with my post pregnancy body I couldn't find anything to wear. Now we all say we have nothing to wear, but as a size 14-16 (or almost 18 post pregnancy) I have often struggled to find beautiful clothes in my size. I started thinking how many women of various sizes I knew and wondering where they shopped and how they found fashion to fit (FASHION not clothes...life's too short to wear clothes that make you feel meh!) And so I began Dressing Up as a forum to share ideas about fashion and let you know where to find fashion that fits. My goal is to inject the fun back into getting dressed each day, to remind you how fabulous your body is and to make your clothes work for you. I want women to see clothes on a body they recognise and be inspired by fashion again - no giving up here! 

I hope you are excited to follow our style tips and re-energise your wardrobe. This is a community, and I rely on your comments and questions to ensure you are getting what you need from this blog - and having fun! 

What are you so dressed up for? LIFE! Remember YOU are the special occasion.
