Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!! Oi, Oi, Oi. As an Australian I’m super excited that City Chic has finally opened a bricks and mortar store in the USA! So far we’ve had our fix in-store at Nordstrom and citychiconline.com now we have the Culver City Westfield store. Its just the first of six to open in California with Brea, Glendale, Northridge, Riverside and San Diego set to open in August and September. Here’s the US store list so you can keep up-to-date on when new ones are added (it would be great to see them open all across America!
To celebrate the opening if you’re in the USA and CANADA you can get 25% off at citychiconline.com as well as the shiny new store in Culver City!
Here’s a few pics of the store preview. It was so much fun with champagne and canapes. I had my hair and makeup done and a good chat with the Aussie City Chic crew (and one Brit) who flew over for the opening. Of course I couldn’t resist trying on a few items to show you what us Aussies have brought in the way of plus size fashion.
Got Boobs? Me too! How about City Chic sexy bras? I loved the sizing on these as they run similar to dress sizes so I happily tried on a 22C. I get confused with the US sizing so this is much easier for me to figure out. There’s also sexy matching undies.
Here is my favorite thing in the store that I’ve never seen anywhere else. The change room hooks make it easy to sort your clothes as you try them on just sort your close according to leave, like and love. I think we all think in these three categories when we are in the midst of piles of clothes in the change room. All stores should adopt this system. I love it!
Now for the clothes. This floor length evening gown went straight to the ‘love’ hook. Classic with a touch of bling and stretchy at the back. See the orange chair and pink mirror? I’m telling you the change rooms are so much fun!
This next one was my outright favorite so I couldn’t resist a quick change room selfie. This is actually a dress! I never thought I could pull off this look but thought I’d give it a go. Boom! It fit and looked great!
This one is XL (size 22) and the gold sequin fabric is to die for. The front and back fabric are separate overlays with gold sequin trim. In the side pic you can see my hand behind the fabric. I felt like a hot rock chick in this outfit. Amazing.
Now time for the floral. This one is beautiful, don’t mind the hanging strap on the right lol. The fabric is lovely and there is tulle underneath so of course I had to take it for a spin (literally) who could resits a quick twirl in the City Chic change room. Again this is XL (size 22.)
It was great to see fellow Aussies Carley and Sylvana from the City Chic team! They flew in from Australia to oversee the opening of the six new stores. Turns out Carley grew up less than a mile/kilometer from me (Small world.)
