Yeah, I wrote a purple post. I also wrote a swimwear post. Neither got published. Mainly because I haven’t been happy with the photos – but for the first time in my life (that I can remember) my hesitation was not about the way I look in the photos – but more generally composition/quality type issues. That’s major for me – to not look at a photos and hate them. I honestly believe that the Aussie Curves community has helped inspire that change in my mindset. So thank you ladies – for you confidence, your positivity, your support for each other, and your fabulous fabulous fashion 🙂
Yes, I would prefer to crack out my SLR, and tripod, and head to the park, or a garden, or beach, or somewhere even remotely related to this weeks theme – but, better posted than forever sitting in draft mode waiting for great photos… So, I apologise for the iPhone-mirror-selfies, taken late night, in my walk-in-wardrobe. But I have decided to seize the day, and post the photos.
Aussie Curves is a weekly photo challenge for Australian and New Zealander Plus Size Bloggers and Fashionistas size 14+. This week’s theme is Nature. So, immediately I saw visions of a beautiful maxi-dress, in a field, maybe with one of those great flower headbands… But then I saw this floral blazer and needed an excuse to buy it – I have a self imposed shopping ban active at the moment – which was put into place because of my lack of shopping self control. Which considering I purchased the blazer, me-thinks the ban may not be such an effective control mechanism…
This fabulous Floral Blazer did not break the bank, at only $20 from Kmart (they had a tonne of them). It’s from their straight size line – I’m wearing an 18 – usually my arms are too big for straight sizes, but I was pleasantly surprised by this Kmart gem. It’s fully lined, and nips in at the waist. I’m super happy with this blazer and excited for winter. I wanted a top that wouldn’t compete with the blazer, so picked up this bargain grey singlet for $4 in Kmart.
The jeans are my favorites from Torrid. I need to order more, but the postage costs (and shopping ban) are holding me back for the moment.
Flats: you can’t see them, but I am wearing black lace flats from Kmart.
