Aussie Curves: Knits

Knits knits knits. Bit too warm for knits today in Sydney but in the interest of Aussie Curves, I dug out this little number from Carmakoma.

This is actually two dresses: both matching, layered over each other, from Danish label Carmakoma – got them for a bargain basement price at their end of winter sale last year. I really like their designs: simple and flattering but funky and edgy at the same time. 

It's soooo wearable too. I don't normally do body-con/form-fitting things as I find they show too many lumps and bumps. Don’t get me wrong: I’m still a firm believer in 'Fuck-flattering' and if you're happy flaunting it all, I say go for it. Fact is, I personally just can’t get comfy in body-con things – end up spending all day constantly adjusting everything which just makes me look self-conscious when I'd rather be exuding confidence.

The thing with  this dress though is the clever knitted-ribbed design: it hugs and shows of curves without sticking to every lump and bump. The sparkly fabric also makes it great for a night-out – well, a night out in winter: it's a bit too warm to hit the dance floor in this at the mo.

I'm wearing:

- Carmakoma metallic striped racer-back knitted slip-dress under: 
- Carmakoma metallic striped long-sleeve tube dress 
- Demonia suede leopard-insert creepers from Clubwear Australia 
- Angular cat-eye sunglasses from Dangerfield 

*Correction: I earlier wrote that Carmakoma are Swedish: my bad - they're Danish!
