Aussie Curves- Orange

Thanks to the Aussie Curves group, I've been venturing into the colours orange and yellow. I tried out my first orange top (in this post) and loved it! Orange is such a cheery fun colour and given my love of colour I'm surprised I hadn't tried it before. I guess I thought my complexion wouldn't suit orange as I tend to look washed out in warm tone colours, but I think it looks okay. And even if it did, well so what? I want to wear things because I like them, they don't have to suit my complexion. Another fashion rule that you can follow if you want, but there's no need to!


I was going to wear my orange top again, but then I remembered this skirt. I usually play up the red tones in the skirt, but there's plenty of orange there to work with! This pretty skirt is an old Autograph one (back when they were called Sixteen Twenty Six) given to me by a friend. My black top was passed on to me by a friend too! By the way, when I have described something as "gifted" on my blog, I meant something given to me by a friend or family member, not something donated to me by a brand. I'll include more details from now on so I don't give the wrong impression. All my gifted items on the blog so far have been presents or things passed on to me from friends/family, and if I'm gifted something by a brand I'll say so clearly.


I think this orange hair flower is my biggest so far. The flower and skirt together make me think of tropical vacations. :-) The skirt is lovely and comfortable and swishy.


Trying to show you my accessories here. Hair flower and earrings are from Big W. My unicorn necklace wasn't photographing very well today, so further down is a better photo from another time.

    1. Thanks! I'm liking the colour combo the more I wear it. You can't see in the pic, but the lining of the skirt is a lovely vivid pink too.

    1. Thank you! I think you're right, I've been wrong avoiding orange all these years- we're going to be good mates from now on. :-)
