Aussie Curves: Leggings. I AM SUPERWOMAN

Do you ever feel like people have been have been laughing at you behind your back? Well, without going into the particulars I have been a bit down this past weekend as I feel like that has been happening to me. (not by my lovely blog readers of course!)

Sometimes that's what happens when you are a little bit different. If people don't know how to deal with you they will marginalise you. It's because they are scared: People are always scared of what's different.

So anyway, to all of those of you who have been laughing at me because of the way I look or act or for the things that come out of my loud mouth, I would like to say the following:

KISS MY FAT ARSE:


I AM FABULOUS AND I WILL NOT LET SMALL MINDED ARSEHOLES BRING ME DOWN. 

End of rant. Sorry about that. I needed to vent. And what better way to introduce this week's Aussie Curves 'leggings' theme than arse-first? Especially when the arse on these wicked bright blue spandex leggings by Aussie designer Gisela Ramirez feature the fabulous heart shaped design?


The blue spandex is excellent too. As it helps me feel invincible!

I AM SUPERWOMAN: DON'T FUCK WITH ME


 

 

I'm wearing it here with:

 - Black dress with sheer spotted mesh top from City Chic
 - Neon pink beaded necklace from H & M in London a couple of years ago when I was living there

 - Black Suede Creepers with leopard print insert by Demonia from Clubwear Australia



The creepers are a new purchase, having only just discovered the Demonia brand after my recent purchase of brand new skull boots with tags still attached from Vinnies. Upon further research, they've got some pretty cool styles and because they're mainly all unisex - that means there's plenty of styles available in the right size for my giant man feet.

Plus I felt it was time for another pair of creepers - in black this time - as I've been wearing my blue suede ones to death - they are just so fucking comfy. So I figured a black pair would be perfect for going with everything.

The other new purchase are these awesome sunnies:


You may remember that a while ago I was crushing pretty hard on the Alexander Wang angular cat-eye sunnies from Net-a-porter. Well, I splashed out and bought them but the damn things didn't fit on my head! So I sadly sent them back.

Then, a few days ago I spied an excellent knock-off pair in the Myer Emporium magazine by Dangerfield for only $24. Then when I popped into Dangerfield to pick up a pair - they were 50% off! So only $12 for these sunnies that were about $300 in their original form by Alexander Wang.


I think Dangerfield may specialise in knocking off funky designer goods as I also scored a piano-key necklace there a couple of weeks ago that's an exact replica of one available at Tatty Devine. As much as I'd prefer to support the original designers and their lovely products hand-made in England - it is hard to resist a bargain.

Oh my, I do love a bargain!


And then, just because I felt the outfit wasn't quite loud enough with neon leggings and beads, I decided to throw on this sequin-covered bright yellow leopard print bomber jacket from ASOS:


Apologies as I'm a bit crap at actually blogging about things that are still available to purchase!

This one sold out a while ago - I bought on sale at the end of last year and only finally wore it for the first time a couple of weeks ago.


I knew when I saw it on  sale that I couldnt live without it, but when it arrived and I saw just how LOUD it was - it took me quite a while to talk myself into wearing the damn thing in public. 


Anyway, it seemed appropriate that I model it now: afterall this post is about my life philosophy: being loud and fabulous and not giving a fuck what anyone thinks.

BECAUSE I AM SUPERWOMAN

PEACE OUT MAN

  1. Your attitude is awesome, and I love those leggings! I feel like I've found a kindred spirit in my love of bright colours, and having big man feet (size 11 wide here). You totally rock this outfit!

    1. Man feet can be annoying but I guess in the long run it just means the bigger your feet, the more grounded you are as a person!

  5. Hey Miss Evie, I have had the same things happen to me time and time again. I think its working in this industry (I see you work at ACP) its just such a bitchy competitive industry and if you don't fit a certain mould you are marginalised and made to feel like crap.... believe me I've been there. Like you I say screw them. By the way I freaking love your style, why haven't we met at an industry event I just know we would get along. Also I have the same necklace, I got mine at Tokyo H&M but in white, I so so so so so so wish I got that neon pink though xxx

    1. Hi Hayley - yes you've hit the nail on the head there! I know it's just the way it is in this industry. I think "Fuck you, I'm fabulous" is the best attitude you can have! Thank you for your comments - I've been stalking your blog for a while and I love your style too! I think we actually own a lotta the same things! I'm only in a fairly junior position at ACP - team coordinator for the digital team so I don't go to many industry events. Hopefully I will start getting involved in more blogger related events now and I will certainly see you at PSFWA! xxx

  6. I think I just died.
    Please leave me those shoes and that jacket and that necklace in your will for me.
    Alternatively, give me the jacket when you are bored with it so I can rock the shit out of it.

    Your Sincerly.
