Aussie Curves – Favourite Store

I’m in two minds about my favourite store.

The store I likely buy most of my clothes from is City Chic, mostly because I know they are going to fit and the clothes suit my style.

I remember when the first stores opened in New Zealand – I fell in love immediately with all the clothes and I haven’t stopped shopping there since. Finally there was a store which had stylish clothes that actually fit me, it was amazing. I still have the first dress I ever bought from the Lambton Quay store. I haven’t worn it in years, but I can’t bear to part with it.

Although I have started to shop around a bit more and buy online, I probably still buy at least one thing from City Chic every few weeks. I can’t help it.

Aussie Curves – Activewear

This week’s Aussie Curves theme is Activewear. I’ve spent a lot of time hunting for some good exercise gear that was actually cool, comfortable and fit me.

I came across a new brand in Farmers a few months ago called Super Fit Curve (they also have a straight size line). The items are bright and comfortable. I’m definitely keen to keep an eye out for when more items are released.

Aussie Curves – Night Out

Hi! I’m still alive. Kind of.

I haven’t been feeling that great about what I have been wearing or what I look like lately. So mostly I’ve just been avoiding it all and wearing/doing the bare basics.

Which means I have not been feeling inspired to do any Aussie Curves posts or outfits (even just to an Instagram fall-back). I’m not really sure why either, just feeling blah about it all.

But today I am going to attempt a short and sweet post for Night Out.

A happy coincidence meant that Man Piece and I actually did have a night out this week to Empire, which is currently showing in Wellington. (It’s like the circus meets burlesque, with a whole heap of funny thrown in there. Definitely worth going to.)

We had a bit of food at Mac’s Brewbar…

Then indulged in a bit of a show…

(All the sticks are balanced carefully on his head.)

And I managed to get Man Piece to get a picture of my outfit…

Aussie Curves – Challenge Flashback

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.

Aussie Curves – Nature

This week was my first week back at work, so I haven’t had too much time to even think about how Nature could be incorporated into Fashion for Aussie Curves.

But as Man Piece and I were out for our walk around the waterfront today, I realised that my ducky jacket, as it is now known, could definitely be within the definition of nature.

So on our way back, I got Man Piece to snap a couple of pictures.

Plus there was some nice trees around to use as the backdrop.

There were even real ducks right by where we stopped!

Hopefully I will be a bit more organised this coming week and make sure I get some photos earlier in the week.
