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.

CITY CHIC…I LOVE YOUR TUNIC DRESSES!

Standard

CITY CHIC is one of my favourite shops….great fashion for FABULOUS, CURVY girls (and I use the term girls to include women…ladies…babes- what ever you call yourself). In the previous few months CC has had some AMAZING tunics/ dresses in. You’ve got to know which ones I’m referring to…yes?. They have a zip down the front, have come in solid colours and also in prints, with an amazing neckline and puffy pocket like bits. So I need to pose a question… How many is too many for a girl to have??? I have four. A black one, a pink one, a leopard print one and a neon multi coloured one. I have actually had to stop myself from getting any more. They are SUPER COMFY and VERY FLATTERING.

Over the last couple of weekends I’ve had a couple of ‘events and worn one to each.

At the beginning of July,my hubby and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary! We went for dinner in Lygon Street and spent the night in Melbourne. We had a wonderful time and I felt SUPER SEXY in my black tunic/dress, worn with long black boots and accessorized with a fab hot pink and orange necklace from TS clothing and a hot pink clutch from Target.

Last weekend I went to a friend’s BACHELORETTE do at ‘La Di Da’ in Melbourne. It was excellent and I would recommend their bachelorette/ hen packages. I wore my leopard print tunic/ dress, again with my long black boots and a mixture of silver and gold accessories. I felt great and got some lovely comments.

 Actually, I have a morning tea this Saturday and may just wear my pink tunic/ dress…watch this space!

What are you’re favourite items of clothing at the moment and why?

AUSSIE CURVES: BLUE

Standard

Last weekend, my hubby and I celebrated our wedding anniversary…17 years! Not too shabby. We stayed over in Melbourne Saturday night and had a FAB meal on Lygon Street. It was our first visit to Lygon street since we moved here from the UK nearly 5 years ago and we’ll definitely be going back!

( Look out for my post on what I wore out for dinner on the Saturday night!)

This weeks Aussie Curves challenge, BLUE, is all about what I wore to breakfast on the Sunday morning. Now if someone asked me about my favourite colours I would never think to mention blue…but actually bright blues suit me and I have quite a few bright blue pieces of clothing. I love mixing the blue with black.

AUSSIE CURVES: NATURE

Standard

When I saw this week’s Aussie curves challenge was NATURE I wasn’t sure how I was going to complete it…then it came to me…FLOWERS! I love floral prints!!! I thought I’d get some pictures on the weekend in a floral frock and then before I knew it my outfit this morning was perfect for the challenge: BONUS!

So, without further a do…

(Sorry about the lighting…)
