Aussie Curves: Stripes

I was looking forward to this week's Aussie Curves challenge. Stripes is an easy one for me- the problem was deciding on which outfit to put together. I finally decided on a maxi dress I had picked up from Big W.

It's super comfy, the straps are wide enough to hide bra straps, and it's just the right length. I still think Big W need to work on their sizing, this dress was snug at a size 26.


I decided on red accessories, including this fab red handbag I picked up from the op shop for $3.
I'm wearing my pretty wedge shoes I purchased from Big W. Still practising wearing them around the house.


Jewelry was picked up from markets and gifted from friends.

  2. Hot Diggity, you are lookin fine in that dress! It accentuates your curves in all the right places. Navy, white and red looks great.

  3. There is no way that dress is a 26! I would have no hope fitting into it.

    The cut of the maxi dress looks beautiful on you. Love the pops of red!

    1. Thanks. Yeah the Big W sizing is so annoying, they finally have some great fashion, but make it too small- so stupid!

  8. It looks GREAT! Love it. What a fun dress. And I know what you mean about BigW sizing. I bought three items there the other week in all different sizes from an 18 to a 26. WAY off dudes, way off.

    1. You should- Big W have definitely raised their game in the plus size section. If only Kmart and Target would follow their example.

  14. This dress looks great on you. I love the way it pulls in a bit under the bust. The red accessories are also cool, especially that rockin' owl necklace. Big W's sizes give me the S@#TS!!! I recently got a dress that fit perfectly, however their jeans in the same size don't come close. Bah! to them!

    1. I love red accessories, my owl necklace gets worn often it was a good buy. Oh I hear you with the sizing, so frustrating! Especially when Big W are actually providing some colourful fun options for the plus sizes.

  15. Yep sizing always seems to be off at BigW but then again it's not about the label, you're working that dress. I can't believe you got that bag for $3, insane!

  17. The semi-nautical feel and the irregularity of the stripes of that dress is all kinds of awesome!
