Aussie Curves- Boho

Boho style has hippy type connotations for me, and it's a style I'm pretty comfortable with. I'd have more pieces in this style if I could find them. Flowy dresses and skirts, lots of colour and flowers- I'm a fan. The trouble was, most of my hippy type outfits are meant for the warm months, sandal weather. This dress I'm showing you I usually wear with some denim shorts and a pretty coloured underwire bra but it's just too cold to take off that many layers. So I'm pairing the dress with long sleeve shirt and leggings. Not as nice, but much warmer!

This dress is an old one from Domino Dollhouse. It's too short for me, hence why I usually pair it with shorts. It'd made of a soft stretchy cotton, and is so cool to wear in summer. I love the patchwork patterns on it.

I don't have a flower crown, but I decided to attempt a similar thing by putting a bunch of flower clips on my head. The necklace is from my local artisan market, I like how it brings out the turquoise colours in the dress.

My flower ring is from the same markets. If you're ever in Newcastle on the first Saturday of the month, come check out The Olive Tree Markets- they have great stuff.

Aussie Curves- Feminine

To me, feminine means flowers, dresses and lacy petticoats. This dress is from Asos Curve from an old season. I wore it to my brother's wedding- it's pretty and swishy. I teamed it with my lavender petticoat from Domino Dollhouse- more frills and swishes! I like the full skirt, and the colour is lovely.

My hair flowers teamed in nicely with the petticoat, I picked them up a time ago at Best and Less. I love the fullness of the flowers, it doesn't matter what angle I clip them into my hair, you will always see petals. I'm finding crocodile clips work really well on my thick slippery hair.

This necklace and earrings are having their first time on my blog. The necklace I picked up for half-price at Crossroads. I didn't venture into pastels until the Aussie Curves challenge. This necklace was a deliberate purchase in that direction, as I've found that some pastel shades actually do look nice on me. The cute little bird earrings were also half price at Big W. I love a good saving! The dress was on sale when I bought it too. Yay sales.

Aussie Curves- Spikes

I don't have much stuff with spikes, only a couple of accessories. I decided to put them with a peplum/pencil skirt combo. I'm trying out a more serious expression here just for a change. It's not really me though.

Ah that's better! My spike necklace was obtained through a mistake- I ordered the cosmic triangle necklace from Domino Dollhouse and received this spiky triangle instead. When I contacted them they sent me out the right necklace, and I got to keep the mistake. Great service.

My spike bracelet is from Asos. I like the silver tone, and being an elastic kind, there's a good chance it will fit my wrist.

My peplum top is from City Chic, picked up when on sale. I like the thick material, seems to be the kind that will last a while. I'd usually wear it with a belt, but I wanted to keep attention on the necklace. The skirt is actually a bodycon dress from Asos Curve. The material is too thin to wear as is, so I use it for layering.

Aussie Curves- Green

It was hard choosing a green outfit for this week's challenge, because I like green and most of my outfits are already on my blog. I finally decided on this dress from Millers. I love the pattern, it reminds me of stained glass windows and the 70s. Random I know. This dress comes out in cool weather, as the polyester type fabric is fairly warm. I stuck some leggings on too as it was cold.

It's a pretty loud pattern, so I felt like keeping it simple with a hair flower and some earrings.

Outfit Details
Dress: Millers (20, old season)
Leggings: Autograph (M, old season)
Shoes: Kmart (11)
Hair Flower: can't remember, Target or Big W probably
Earrings: gift from a friend
