Aussie Curves: Sparkle

This week's challenge was Sparkle, and immediately I knew I'd have some problems, as I don't own any sparkly clothes. I did own sparkly jewelry, so I decided to wear a plain black dress and let my jewelry sparkle instead. Bahahaha! *slaps knee, wipes tears* No seriously, I didn't wear black, but I did need a simple dress that didn't busy up my look. I went with a turquoise sun-dress from Asos Curve (once again from the sales section) and pulled together some sparkly jewelry.


Earrings from Diva, necklace was an old brooch that belonged to my Granny, bracelet from Yours Clothing, shoes from Big W (there's a little hint of sparkle in the straps there) and hair slide I don't remember. I also painted my nails with Opi Meep Meep Meep (from the Muppet Collection) they have glitter in the polish. Bit hard to get a good photo of it though.




The dress is comfy stretch cotton, and a little shorter than I'm comfortable with. The straps need to be adjusted as they were a little long (my usual problem, when it fits in the hips it's too big up top).


No I'm not pulling a hip hop move, I'm trying to show you all my sparklies in one place.
