Aussie Curves is a new style challenge that kicks off today, having been initiated by Danielle Melnyczenko of Danimezza for all the plus size fashion bloggers of Australia to give us a challenge and a bit of a unified goal.
The idea is there’s a different theme each week and we have to come up with a new blog post each Monday that fits with the theme.
Being the enormous lazypants that I am, I’ve decided to utilise the opportunity as a good old-fashioned kick up the arse to actually occasionally update my damn blog.
So here’s my contribution for this week. This week’s theme is BOOTS and the ones I’m wearing are el-cheapo rubber wellie ankle boots from Target.
This is my favourite outfit for a night on the town. The sheer panels on the dress say ‘I’m up for a good time’ while the loud Frida flowers on top of my head say ‘I’m a crazy lady: stay away from me’.
Anyway, forgetting what boys think, because they’re retarded, I love this floral headpiece from my friend Jo of JoDeska and her cousin Daphne on their Etsy store HalfHalf. Very Frida = very fabulous.
The sheer panel dress from Asos is one of the first things I’ve bought from their main range that I’ve been happy with. Although there’s a huge number of size 16 and 18 things available in their main range, I tend to play it safe and stick with the plus-size curve collection as the fit of the other stuff tends to be rather hit and miss(at least in terms of fitting plus-size bodies which it’s not cut specifically for).
The sheer panels on this one allows one to show just the right amount of skin while hiding the bits (like back-fat and side-wobble) that one tends to feel self-conscious about. It also covers the rude boob area while still allowing one to flaunt a certain amount of boobage.
I find it looks best with a loud clashing bra such as this leopard print bra (um, it was an uber-cheapo one from Target :-p )
This dress also scores points for the flared skater-skirt. A popular shape at the moment which is simultaneously flattering and cute.
