This week the challenge is to steal a style “Off The Runway” and interpret the look in your own way. Endless possibilities. I discovered the look above by Marissa Webb (Spring 2014) and knew instantly that I could make it work. I already owned a metallic gold skirt and my crisp blouse was begging to be worn. I didn’t have a white tie so I added some simple chains. I didn’t have super strappy heels but I did have a cute pair of nude t-bars. Basically same-same but different.
It was really cool because this isn’t an outfit I would have organically put together myself, I’m sure a lot of the Aussie Curve ladies will have felt that way this week, it’s all about pushing boundaries after all. This photo/pose is inspired by Teer, I was actually trying to hold my skirt up then burst out laughing when I realised what I was doing. I made the skirt last year for my trip to NYC, it’s made of gold metallic denim, it’s so soft and I love it’s uniqueness. It doesn’t really fit me anymore, it’s too big but I just need to find the time to pull out the sewing machine.
I haven’t worn my beautiful extension for awhile, it’s been way too hot over summer but I can see them getting a lot more wear during the cooler months. I’ve gotten pretty good at clickity-clacking them in. I’m slowly trying to reintroduce my own natural hair colour to blend with the blonde, it’s going to take some time and it will look weird for awhile but it will be worth it (especially for my scalp) in the long run. It’s growing super fast and I can’t wait for my next hair appointment just prior to Curvy Couture Roadshow.
Not only was I inspired by the Marissa Webb outfit but also the make up so I tried my best to recreate it. I could have gone a little heavier on the contouring but overall I think I nailed it. Bright golden shadow, simple cat eye, strong brows, luminous skin and a bold lip. This week was a lot of fun, I managed to play catch up too so be sure to come back tomorrow and see my look for “Secondhand”.
