Today I’m not really in the mood for talking, physically I can’t force out more than a bark. Thank you Melbourne for getting me sick. That wasn’t going to stop me from playing along this week on Aussie Curves even though the lack of smile and sparkle in my eyes speaks volumes. Sometimes even a pretty outfit can’t shake up your mood.
I was given this cute little teddy bolero sample from the lovely ladies at 17 Sundays. It’s made out of the softest furry fabric and is so comfy to wear. I love the added texture it brings to the outfit plus my arms are saved from rubbing up against the beads.
The beaded shift dress is a sale item I purchased from ASOS Curve almost two years ago. It was my first ASOS buy, $250 down to $35 and was the last one in my size. To some it might be a little short but I’m confident enough to rock it with tights from We Love Colors.
It wouldn’t be a sparkle outfit without a little Glomesh. I picked up this evening bag at an op shop in Brisbane and it’s one of my favourites. I seem to come across gold, white and burgundy glomesh bags all the time but silver ones are rare for me.
I kept the shoes simple, suede wedges for comfort and to add a little height. I think that by having matte black legs and shoes it elongates my legs and lets the beaded shift dress be the focus of attention. On another note I straightened my hair for the first time in forever. I’m not sure if I like the straight or curly look more… maybe I’m lucky and I can pull off both?
Next week’s theme is TRIBAL and I’m so excited to see everyone’s looks. Don’t forget you can join in the conversation behind the scenes on the Aussie Curves facebook group.
