So another year of Aussie Curves begins!
The only denim items in my wardrobe are many pairs of jeans, so when it came to deciding what to wear my decision was pretty much made for me.
But of course if I was just going to wear jeans, they were going to be the best pair of jeans I own – a pair of City Chic’s TDFs.
I can’t believe the year of Aussie Curves challenges have come to an end.
When I first started the challenges at week four I didn’t really know what the year was going to hold. I have participated in 26 challenges (including this one).
I’ve had some good outfits and some horrible ones (in my eyes), but the one thing that I can say is that my body confidence has grown enormously. Before starting the AC challenges, I worried about what people would think and say on photos of myself online. I barely posted photos of myself on Facebook, Instagram or here on my blog. A lot has changed.
I have figured out what clothes I like, what I don’t and most importantly what I feel comfortable in. I’ve gone out of my comfort zone several times and bought clothes I would never have bought several years ago. And, most importantly, I’ve made friends with people that I would never have met otherwise.
So here are a few of my favourite outfits from the Aussie Curves challenges.
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.
