Aussie Curves: Feminine


Being that I'm an op-shopaholic and a massive fan of vintage frocks, a 'feminine' theme was always going to be an easy one for me.


You can't go wrong with an old-fashioned girly frock.


This frock is one of my fave second-hand finds. A perfect fit, floral, pleated, vintage and monochrome - it's a very easy go-to outfit for when I'm not sure what to wear.


I took these photos back in summertime when I wore it sleeveless but it also works in winter with a long sleeve black top underneath for an extra layer.


It came from a shop in Wollongong mall called 'Medieval Disco' which has since changed hands and is now called Stillwater Haze and is not as great as it used to be, but they still have an interesting vintage collection.


It's another acquisition from one of my Wollongong/Illawarra region opshopping tours with my cousin Kate. I got it over a year ago with her twisting my arm to buy it, and have worn it heaps since.


Am wearing it here with:

- Sunnies from ASOS (prev season)
- Skull studded flats from Payless shoes
- Belt from H&M (in London a few years back)
- Black leggings from who knows where - I have many, they are my comfort uniform
