I almost wasn’t going to do this week’s Aussie Curves theme, but then I thought, why the hell not.
So I’m doing something a bit different. Firstly, I’m currently in Auckland, so I don’t even have access to my wardrobe.
However, I then started thinking, what better time to do a time saver outfit when I am on holiday?
I have a confession to make. I really struggled with this week’s Aussie Curves theme.
Most people probably wouldn’t have a problem coming up with something for Sparkle week. And although I love sparkly things, I finally realised I don’t actually own that many things that would fall into the category.
I have lusted over various sequin dresses and skirts (hello ASOS), but have never bought any. Mostly because I feel that the garment would be hard to clean and sequins have a tendency to fall off, so the beauty of the garment will not last. Thus I have avoided most sparkly pieces of clothing. Which left me struggling to come up with an outfit.
Then, I was laying in bed one night trying to get to sleep and suddenly thought, ‘I could use my gold glitter clutch! Huzzah!’
But where is that glitter clutch? Buried in a suitcase at Man Piece’s parents’ place. Darn.
Back to the drawing board.
My wardrobe is kind of a mix of styles, but mostly I like to associate with the punk, rock, chic style. So when it came to Hipster week for Aussie Curves, I thought I was good.
Then I got stuck for ideas.
I took to Pinterest and searched for Hipster. Most of the results were pantyhose with short shorts, flannelette shirts and boots. But what also popped up were a lot of cute cuddly jumpers. I had just the thing.
When I first set eyes on this dress at the City Chic Pitt St store opening it was love at first sight. It was perfect with it’s black and white kaleidoscope pattern, spikes on the shoulders and the vinyl. Oh the vinyl.
So when it came to choosing what to wear for Aussie Curves Body Con week, well, it was a no-brainer.
Isn’t it GORGEOUS?!
It has been a long time since I did an Aussie Curves post, but I’m back!
This week’s theme is Pattern Clash. I don’t tend to own a lot of patterns. I shy away from them as I see them as too ‘out there’ for me, most of the time. If I do buy patterns, it is because they are fairly subtle, or are within the stripes/polka dots style of pattern, nothing too major.
Now, pattern clashing is meant to be a huge trend this winter. And one tip I have picked up is that the best way to clash is to keep with the same colour palette.
