This is my studio wardrobe, not exactly glamorous but it does the job, the majority of my clothes are stored in my bedroom wardrobe. This is an ever evolving space where I keep my high rotation accessories, latest PR garments and new clothes I’ve yet to share in an outfit post. Being able to see all the items clearly makes it easier (and more fun) for me to dream up outfits. I was sorting through my studio today and I thought you might like to have a little looksie.
We may be going into winter but I have no intention of doing it without big bold bursts of colour. I can’t wait to share the watercolour print dress with you and the most sumptuous pair of black pants I’ve ever worn. A waterproof coat is also in there and you can beat your sweet ass I’ll be rocking monochrome this season. Buying clothes has been challenging as I’m also trying to prepare for Spring/Summer in NYC. I’ll be there for almost three weeks… that’s a lot of outfits!
Leather for plus sizes is even more accessible this year (keep an eye on the miniMAG tomorrow) and you just know I’ll be flouncing about in my leather cut out flare skirt from 17 Sundays. It’s buttery soft, graphic and fits like a dream. I can’t wait until I can take it out for a spin again. Velvet will also be getting a good flog from me this year, I’m all about texture, colour and form.
I’m not going to kid myself into thinking that I’ve totally sworn off black this winter. There’s no reason why I can’t dazzle up a black drizzly day outfit with a colourful punchy belt and an equally bold lip now is there? If you’re scared of colour, using accessories will not only make those black items work double time when it comes to cost-per-wear but if you slowly play with it, be it a pink belt or a yellow clutch, you’ll become more comfortable.
These aren’t the only shoes I have but they’re the ones I wear for most of my Aussie Curves photos. The black platform pumps from Target are comfortable enough but I look ridiculous when I walk in them. They’re my “shoot shoes” as they make my legs look amazing and they’re a classic beautiful heel. Lets keep it real here, I’m heavy and wearing high heels kills my ankles. I have some cute low heels I love but when my feet get achy at events I whip out my foldable flats from TS14+. They have been total lifesavers. The best part is that the zippered bag they’re kept in turns into a carry case for your heels!
I don’t own many handbags or clutches and the ones I do own have been thrifted or gifted. They really do make me happy though. I’m so used to carting around huge bags that it’s nice to cradle a little one sometimes. You can see a few of my Glomesh bags that I’ve picked up along the way. The little pink bag is from Seed Heritage, the pink leather cross body is imported vintage, the black bag was $2 and the floral oversized clutch is an oldie but a goodie.
I used a wardrobe hanging rack from Freedom to house all my belts and scarves. You can also see the pink neon hat I planned to wear to Suger’s 30th B’day party… sigh, I was so bummed I couldn’t make it. There is also my big pink patent tote bag and silver sequin bag both from Wild Bling. If my outfit ever needs a bit of razzle dazzle I just grab one of these babies and I’m off like Posh. I really hope you enjoyed the little sneak peek!
I’m nosy and I love posts like this too so if you want to show me your wardrobe or maybe just a snap of the last thing you bought then post it on my facebook page or tag it on instagram or twitter using the #aussiecurves hashtag.
