This week on the Aussie Curves Challenge we're doing "Red". An easy theme for me as I love red- it makes me feel confident and happy. It was a matter of which red item to choose. I finally decided on this awesome gingham dress from Asos Curve (a new purchase so it was my first wear out!). I ordered a 24, which is a little big on top, but still doable.
It was a super windy day so I stuck my hair in pigtails. The material of the dress is cotton- comfy and breathable. I can see myself wearing this a lot in summer. I also love feeling like I'm wearing a cafe tablecloth. ;-)
I know it's not red (I wanted a red one but they were sold out) but I slipped a Domino Dollhouse petticoat underneath the dress to give it more foof. Everyone should have one of these in their wardrobe, they are SO comfy and soft, not scratchy at all.
Another awesome thing about this dress- it has pockets. Good size pockets!
I popped on some bracelets from Yours Clothing, they came in a set of 3- red, white and blue. They are a good size for my thick wrists.
This little owl necklace is one of my favourites. I picked him up from my local artisans market, The Olive Tree Markets. All the wares there are handmade. The owl came with a chain that my kids promptly broke, so I threaded in a ribbon which I actually like much better.
These earrings were picked up for $3 at a market at my son's school. I like the interesting design on them.
My shoes were such a bargain- picked up from Best and Less for $10! I couldn't believe they had a size 11. I love the polka dots inside.
Of course a red dress needs a red lipstick! This is a cheapie from Aldi, which then promptly stopped stocking the shade. Oh well I'll enjoy it while it lasts. My favourite polka dot hair bow is also from the Olive Tree Markets.
This is last time you'll see me with long hair! I got my hair cut short recently and I love it.
