This week in the Aussie Curves Challenge – the theme is Fears Exposed and I’m leaping in both feet first with not one, but two of my fashion fears…
The print twinset AND a crop top.
It took me a long time to plunge into the twinset trend. I’ve loved the look on my favorite bloggers, so chic and fashion-y – I’ve added matching sets to online shopping carts several times, but I just wasn’t sure I’d be able to pull it off. Then the set that I had been coveting at Simply Be went on sale – it was enough to push me over the edge and I ordered them.
Simply Be do not ship to Australia (booo) so I used a freight forwarder (Comgateway.com) to get my wares from the US to AU. If you want to read more about freight forwarders – I’ve written about it previously here.
I’m still not sure I’m ready yet to fully rock the crop top and pencil skirt combo with a potentially bare midriff, so underneath I’m wearing a black Lycra singlet from Kmart. As an added bonus, the singlet helps to create a smooth line, especially down my back (over my bra) which is a pet peeve of mine. It’s a good tip to easy yourself into this look – I hope one day to forget about the singlet and be able to fully rock a crop, but I’m going to let myself off the hook for now – after all, I had a baby 6 weeks ago!
I’ve done the rounds and found some other fab twinsets available in plus and extended sizing…
