Her Universe and Your next clothing obession

Hi there sports fans (I'm sorry if you are not a sport fan, I'm not, I wont judge, just thought it was a good way to start this post). Anyway whilst browsing the interwebs recently I stumbled upon this new and amazing brand Her Universe that speciallises in geek culture based designs. And the best part is that all designs come in plus sizes so no one has to miss out on wearing their favourite pop culture references on their sleaves. Her are some of my favourites.

Can't say I'm a massive Captain America Fan, he's always been too much of a goodie too shoes for my liking, but until they release a Spider-Man or X-Men dress this is the next best thing for Marvel fans.


I have been wanting a couple of comic book themed tank tops for a while to brighten up my mainly black gym atire, this one will do just the trick.

Ah Dr Who, I know so much about it yet I have never watched a full episode, and yet I know what each Doctor wears and rough story lines. I do love this dress though, and if I did have to pick a Doctor I think David Tennant would definatelty win.

Ok my nerd statis is definately plumiting now since I admit I have never seen all of the original Star Wars, I have just seen the one where Han Solo gets defrosted from Carbonite and there's Jaba the Hut. I think it's the last one? I don't know. I think I saw the new ones too as I remember Natalie Portman get married but again not too sure. I digress, even though I haven't seen all the films how can I resist the cropped vest and printed belt combo of this dress? Super fun.
Now unfortunalely Her Universe does not ship to Australia, but if you have a quick google you would be able to find quite a few forwarding companies that for a small fee will allow you to never be blocked from buying your favourite brands just because you live Down Under.
Well that's all from me folks.
Until next time,
Your friendly neighbourhood Red Velvet Rosie.

Worst Blogger EVER!

Who has two thumbs and is the worst blogger ever? This chick. Sorry for the oh so late update, the past few months have been rather hectic and I think the ball was officially dropped on the blog front. Whoops, any who best not to dwell on my epic fail and move on. For those who follow me on Instagram (redvelvetrosie) you would be pretty much up to date, but for those who don't here's a brief update of what I have been up to.

In March I had the pleasure of modeling for Melbourne's first Curvy Couture Roadshow as apart of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival. The day was a huge success and it was wonderful to meet so many curvy girls who are really making waves in the fashion industry.

Press play for the highlights recorded by Blogger Danimezza.
Next up was Melbourne Supanova Pop Culture Expo at the Showgrounds. After a couple of sleepless nights and the help of my lovely friend Ruth I finally finished my Spider-Girl costume in time to debut it during the Sundays event.


Also go to see some amazing pinup cosplay.
April also was when I had the pleasure of attending a friends wedding at a winery north of Melbourne. It was an excellent day and gave me the opportunity to wear my new Jessica Dress from Bombshell Vintage's Atomic Bombshell collection. 


Clearly very excited to be apart of the festivities.

The lovely Bride and Groom.
Which finally brings us the June where I had the opportunity to model the new designs from Silvana Tedescos new plus size bridal couture range. These dresses are simply stunning and I cannot recommend them enough to curvy brides out there looking for their dream dress.

Oh and no big deal but I got to meet Stan Lee last week at Sydney Supanova. And by "no big deal" I mean I totally fan girled all over the place and may have cried when he said I reminded him of a young Mary Jane Watson. Yeah I know, you wish you were as cool as me.
Well that's all from me folks, stay tuned for the next couple of posts where I share a new line of geek culture inspired clothing, my winter lust list and of course, Oz Comic-Con.
Until next time,
Your friendly neighbourhood Red Velvet Rosie.
