Aussie Curves: Nails

This weeks Aussie Curves theme is nails.

Nails are excellent for procuring boogers out of ones nose.

And thus ends the portion of this post relevant to this week’s theme… Am I fired?

No, seriously though. I’m not into nails, never have been. I bite them all off. But in the interest of posting SOMETHING I found these pics below that I took a while ago:



I love this dress from ASOS. It’s lacey, it’s loud and it has a cute bubble hem. I have to confess though: I tried it on, took these photos and then I had to return it. 



This style was not made for bigger bottomed ladies.  The lining was way too tight & I could only just pull it down over my arse but I couldn’t actually sit down in it. Too loose in the boobs though to warrant going up a size.

Wish I could’ve kept it as the yellow lace looked fantastic with this neon pink beaded necklace I got at H&M in London about 3 years ago for £5. (Fuck I miss H&M. It’s like crack cocaine. So addictive. Cannot WAIT until it opens here!)




The dress also worked well with the more weather-appropriate cream Aran knit cardi also from ASOS that I picked up  last year at the end of the sales for the bargain price of £16.

So sad I couldn’t keep it. :(

    Anyhow. I just stumbled across your blog today as I was browsing, and I just love it, I think I'm in love with you and your awesome wardrobe and sense of humor! :) So I decided to blog about it, and I borrowed some pictures to illustrate your fabulousness(is that a word?), and I just wanted to ask you if that's ok.

  6. That's the problem with buying online...it looks fab in print, but doesn't always look or fit great. It's a gorgeous dress, and the colour really suits you! I bummed for you that you didn't get to keep it!!

    Love the dress too bad it's ill fitting.

    And don't fuss about the nails, it's bold to bite them. Least that's what my husband says. He defends the rights of all nail biters :p
