Aussie Curves - Stripes

As I mentioned in my post about our new segments, Aussie Curves is an Australian size 14+ outfit photo challenge. The aim is to give plus sized women a place to share their fashion, a group of people to get fashion inspiration from and a community to share the journey with. Whilst I have been a part of the Aussie Curves community for a couple months I am only just starting my posting now.

The weeks I have spent as a part of the Aussie Curves community have completely changed my opinion of photo challenges – these women encourage each other, give positive advice & keep such a fantastically positive attitude. Being a chronically glass half full kind of person, these people are TOTALLY my kind of people!!


The challenge was started by Danimezza a plus sized blogger. She has worked hard to grow the challenge and make sure it’s kept to the happy, positive tempo. Not only does she start photo challenges and write uplifting articles, but she also arranges plus sized second hand clothing markets and blogger catch ups. Basically, she’s pretty boss! Each year she releases the Aussie Curves calendar which has a fashion challenge every week that you can interpret however you like. Because I'm a bit late to the party, I’ll be posting catch-up outfits in the next few weeks as well as sticking to the new schedule. To make my life a little easier I will also be pulling some pictures of previous outfits for those weeks I am completely run off my feet!

So without further ado, here is my first Aussie Curves posts - Stripes!

Here is my outfit - this is a flashback from a year or so ago when my friend Maya came back to visit from Japan. We went to a new bar in the city for some cocktails and some well needed girl talk. I chose an outfit that for me felt comfortable and was also dressy enough for a few drinks. I basically wore those combat boots and the circle scarf to death (sad face) but I guess that's how it goes when you love a piece of clothing!

What I wore - Circle scarf: Glassons / Striped lightweight jacket: Cotton On / Belt: Kmart / Dress: Cotton On / Stockings: Razzamatazz curvaceous range / Leopard Ring: Melbourne boutique I don't remember the name of / Shoes: Novo.

If you would like to join the challenge yourself (you should!!! It’ll be so much fun!!) you can either blog it and add your blog post to the linky tool at the bottom of each of my posts or you can instagram it with the tag #Aussiecurves.

Fun! Great outfit and I hear what you on the wearing clothes to death. I hate that. It usually only happens to the best items.
