Aussie Curves: 1 Year Gone

I didn’t come to the Aussie Curves challenge until late in the year and my participation has been really sporadic, but it has been such a great experience!

My own confidence and style has changed just by reading and seeing all the women involved.

Here’s a quick flashback of all my outfits for the past ‘year’. I can’t wait to keep participating and hopefully get to one of the meet ups!

Aussie Curves: Handmade

Hello! Can you believe it? Two Aussie Curves challenges in a row!

This week is handmade. I’m a shit at sewing, I did sewing in high school and was never good at it. As I’ve gotten older I’ve taken to knitting.

I’m not an overly creative knitter, the only things I can manager are scarves, booties and beanies.

I recently finished a scarf I started about this time a year ago. It’s a pattern I’d never tried before and for a novice like me very hard. I’m pretty happy with the finished product.

This photo was taken in Canberra’s very hipster district called Lonsdale St in Braddon. The boyfriend and I had indulged in breakfast and were on our way to see a movie.

Jacket – Dream Diva

Top – City Chic

Jeans – City Chic

Scarf – ME!

Shoes – Big W

Bag – Urban Outfitters (Seattle)

Chain – Colette

Sunglasses – ASOS

Here’s a close up where you can see the scarf a bit better. I particularly love the colour and usually pair it with white or black top/jacket so it’s a statement pop of colour.

Aussie Curves: Ruffles

I’ve been on another hiatus from this blog. Mostly because I’ve had a few big projects with my other blogs and it’s hard to keep up with both!

So here I am for ruffles week.

This outfit is an accidental ‘ruffles’ outfit that I actually took a few weeks ago.

I took this photo to show off my new leather & lace jacket from Dream Diva, but paired with the peplum top from City Chic it’s created a ruffle affect which I’m really loving. This has been my staple ‘Casual Friday’ outfit for the past few weeks!

Aussie Curves: Spikes

Posted on

Another Aussie Curves challenge and this time I had to get super creative. I don’t have anything in my wardrobe that is typically spikey. However I think this top does just the trick, it’s studs in a zig zag pattern – spiky right?

The cardigan is from ASOS Curve and has these brown elbow patches (I love!) top is from City Chic and I picked it up in the sales, skinny jeans are from ASOS Curve and wedge boots are from Big W.

I wasn’t in love with this outfit, but now I’ve seen the pictures I’m very happy with the entire look.

My hair is boringly pulled into a ponytail, but I wanted to show my makeup. Foundation is Arbonne, blush is Napoleon Perdis, eye shadows are from MAC and liner is from NARS. I’m not wearing anything on my lips.

I’ve gotten a lot of use out of these shoes lately, I love them with my skinny jeans or teamed with leggings or tights.

Aussie Curves: Green

Posted on

Holy moly I’m back at it!

This time I’ve got two green things!

Firstly this jacket I bought from ASOS, it was down to half price and with the Canberra Winter around the corner I had to snatch it up. My favourite part is the furry collar, so warm! Oh and ear muffs, they’re for my trip to NYC at the end of the year 🙂

I then had this City Chic green peplum top literally turn up today in the mail. I love the lace detail on the front!

I’m also wearing City Chic Bootcut jeans and pointy blue heels from Big W.

Hope you like! 🙂

Aussie Curves: Leather

Posted on

This weeks Aussie Curves challenge is leather.

Hello big fail whale because I don’t have a single leather thing in my wardrobe, not even a leather necklace or handbag!

After the lovely Lisa reminded me about a hilarious Friends episode I just had to share.

Aussie Curves: Heels

Finally!

A friend wanted me to go with her to scout a location for her engagement pics and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get some pics.

The top is a new purchase from ASOS Curve, I love the statement spike shoulders and peplum. The jeans are a pair I got a while ago from ASOS Curve as well.

Heels are from Forever New and I LOVE THEM! They are super high with a platform and lovely jewel embellishment.

Earrings are from a small boutique in Manhattan 🙂

For those that know Canberra, these photos were taken against the front wall of AIATSIS near the national museum.
