Aussie Curves: Secondhand

Second-hand was always going to be an easy Aussie Curves theme for moi because I have a wardrobe positively bursting with op-shop finds.

This blue floral frock was sourced on an op-shopping tour of the greater Wollongong/Illawarra region with my cousin Kate who lives down there and has trekked the opshopping trail many a time.

I got lucky squishing myself into this frock. On the hanger it seemed to be another one of my staple op-shop finds: an oversized 80s style drop-waist dress for skinny chicks.

When squeezed onto a larger frame though you get a waisted, full-skirted frock out of which one's bosoms tend to burst: a problem easily solved with a cami underneath.....or not if you're more bosomly inclined.

I'm wearing it here with my comfort-uniform of black leggings, flats and oversized necklace.

This particular rose necklace I thought complemented the colours of the dress and also goes nicely with the flowers in the backyard!
