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.

Work It {Outfit}

Posted on

My day job involves an office job and after taking a snap in the work elevator the other day I thought it was a good opportunity to show you one of my work outfits.

This is a high waisted skirt from City Chic, long sleeve teal top with embellished collar is from ASOS Curve and the leggings I have on underneath are from Big W.

Hope you like!

Not All Smiles

Posted on

Today I had a meltdown. Luckily it was in the privacy of my home, because it was ugly. There were tears, red puffy eyes and lots of snot.

I’m so inspired by the plus size bloggers and how they embrace their bodies.

I’m still way behind when it comes to accepting my body and loving my curves. Sure I have days where I feel like I look amazing, but the majority of the time I’m not thinking the nicest thoughts about myself.

The whole reason I wanted to join the Aussie Curves challenge was to try and change the way I feel about myself and my body.

I know it’s going to be a long process to get there and not every day is going to be full of smiles, but when I am feeling bad (like today) I just need to jump online and be reminded that beauty can be found at any size.

Shoe Haul {Flats}

Posted on

Yesterday I decided to treat myself so some new flats for work.

I’ve been wearing heals a little more often than usual, but on a day I know I’ll be doing a fair bit of walking at work I like to have some decent (and nice looking) flats on hand.

My favourite place to go for affordable flats is Big W.

Here are the three I picked up, all less than $20 each.

I’m particularly in love with the cream ones with the studded bows.

Where do you buy your flats from?

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.

Pre: Fashion Event After Party

Posted on

I am beyond excited!

I’ve been working backstage at Canberra fashion event FashFest and I get to go the after party and mingle in the VIP area – cue panic trying to decide what to wear!

This isn’t traditional Westfield shopping fashion, this is off the hook, alternative, out there, amazing fashion! And I want to fit right in!

I’ve already put up a cry for help on the Aussie Curves facebook group and had some fab suggetsions. I’m going to use my spiked shoulder peplum top from the ‘heels challenge’, hair will probably be out and straight with a lot of height. The only issue is the bottoms.

Someone suggested a pencil skirt, which I’m normally very scared of because I feel it highlights my tummy in a BAD way!

If you have any suggestions – HELP!!
