AUSSIE CURVES: FLASHBACK

Standard

It feels like just the other day that I started doing the AUSSIE CURVES CHALLENGES. Being part of the community and  taking part in as many challenges as possible has been really positive for me. Not only have I got to paly with clothes (which I love) but the incredible AUSSIE CURVES community, which I see as a SISTERHOOD has contributed to me feeling more body positive than I have in forever! Thank you ladies.

I posted my first post on 8 November 2013 and haven’t looked back. During this time I’ve attended a fabulous AUSSIE CURVES catch up in Melbourne, meeting a wonderful group of women and I also attended my first official fashion show, The Curvy Couture Roadshow.

Without further a do…here are my favourite outfits from my posts to date.

AUSSIE CURVES: LEATHER

Standard

I missed Aussie Curves: Date Night and didn’t want to make it 2 in a row that I missed, so here’s my Aussie Curves: LEATHER contribution – or to be more accurate, my PLEATHER contribution. Before I go any further I do need to own up and let you know you may have seen these pics before, but I do have an excuse…2 actually. Firstly, this week is totally taken up by being a ‘dance mom’, as it’s Eisteddfod time…and secondly, I don’t really have much leather/ pleather in my wardrobe!

During the recent City Chic sale I did however bag myself a fabulous pleather jacket – down from $150 to $75. BONUS!!! I love it and have worn it casually, on a night out and even to work. It’s been so versatile. One of the best bits of the jacket is the ‘frill’ round the bottom which makes it just a little bit different and works well with by derriere.

AUSSIE CURVES: COCKTAIL

Standard

As I sit down to do this post, I’m very aware of ALL the things I have to do! I’m going away you see (holiday…not asylum!) and have loads to do in the next few hours. I couldn’t miss out on this Aussie Curves challenge though – I LOVE the whole cocktail theme. In fact, in the last 3 years I’ve come to find that I love wearing dresses (all types). So due to time constraints here’s my Aussie Curves: Cocktail post in a nutshell…

AUSSIES CURVES: RESORT

Standard

ac1

As I sit down to do my post on the AUSSIE CURVES: RESORT challenge, I find myself thinking how wonderful it would be to post from somewhere fabulous…oh well, we’re allowed to dream….

For me this challenge makes me think of gorgeous, free flowing maxi dresses and kaftans.

I love maxi dresses. I find them so easy to dress up or down, taking you from beach to bar or party depending on what shoes you wear and what accessories you use.

This is one of my favourites maxi dresses… I got it in 2008 and it’s STILL being brought out… The photo was taken on New Years Eve 2008, while we were on holiday in Uruguay.

My second outfit…is my amazing kaftan from RUBY STREET. I Love, love, love it. It is cool and sooooo easy to wear. I love the print of the material-a mix of classic flowers and funky polka dots.
