We asked Kerry to tell us her story, as we love what she is doing to help other ladies in their quest to look stylish and feel good about themselves.
Here is her story:
"I’m not going to lie my personal style has always been important to me and last year when we went into a long lockdown in Melbourne I was lost and found myself not getting dressed each day.
"I was part of a bariatric community on Facebook as I had weightloss surgery in 2017 and the admins of that community asked me if I’d head up a separate page dedicated to helping bariatric patients find their personal style after some amazing body transformations.

My page started almost a year ago and has grown to over 2500 members. We discuss and share our outfits and give our opinions. We have themes each week for inspiration and I post my OOTD each day and offer advice when asked.
Giving back to a community which has helped me so much has given me so much joy, these people have literally made me cry tears of happiness, seeing their faces when they feel amazing in their outfits is so heartwarming.
Once the page was established I started to share my outfits on my Instagram account. My unique look is a mix of boho, vintage and sometimes a Little Rock chick. I’m a huge advocate for thrift shopping and love to mix my finds with new pieces to create my looks. It’s a way for me to express my creativity and I think there’s nothing more appealing than seeing someone be authentically them.
At 51 years of age, I don’t believe in age appropriate dressing, I think we should rock whatever look we want as long as it makes us happy."
