Aussie Curves- Oversized

I was going to pass on this week's challenge, as I didn't think I had anything oversized, but then I remembered this top. It was a total score from my local op shop. I discovered that sometimes they get brand new out of season stock from Autograph and City Chic. This top was from Autograph, brand new with tags, normally $60 but I got it for $12. There was a bright purple top the same so I bought it too. 

I'm wearing it with my Autograph jeans, which are stretchy and comfy. I'm had them for a few years now, and they show no signs of falling apart.

My hat is a new buy from the holidays, from Best and Less. I love it. It has a cute little bow, and the brim at the back is shortened, so it doesn't catch and pull the hat off my head when I tip my head back.

Aussie Curves- Colour Clash

Just back from my holidays, and sneaking in this week's Aussie Curves challenge. I found this theme hard, namely because I tend to dress in as many colours as I can get away with, so trying to figure out an outfit that clashed was tricky. Purple and orange? Pink and green? Blue and purple? Yellow and purple? Red and pink? Well I wear those combos regularly. Even now, I don't think my outfit clashes, it just presents you with so many colours that it may hurt your eyes. So fair warning! Haha.

This rainbow tunic is fantastic. I got it on sale at Autograph ($20) and it's long enough to wear as a dress (which I do in summer). Usually I wear it belted but I couldn't be bothered this time.

The jeans are also Autograph (on sale for $20, which is how I buy most of my clothes). They are pull on, comfy and in a shade I don't usually wear. I thought the bright primary colours of the tunic might clash with the softer shade pink of my jeans. In theory. To top off my rainbow outfit, my aqua shoes and mauve hair flower. I figure with all the colours I'm wearing, something has to clash right?

Comic Print Dress

I am still waiting for the stars to align (ie stop raining) to do my usual Aussie Curves post. However, I have some other photos to share with you that I took over a week ago, then my internet ran out for the month and I was blogless for a little while. I've been looking forward to sharing this fabulous comic print dress from Yours Clothing with you. I put aside a little bit of money each fortnight ($10) so now and then I can indulge in a expensive (for me) clothes purchase. Usually I spend it on Domino Dollhouse clothes, but this dress was too amazing to pass up. 

This dress is so me- fun and obnoxiously colourful. And in the skater style that I like. I kept the accessories pretty simple, my usual hair flower, bow belt from Asos Curve and yellow handbag.

The material is polyester, but a nice thick fabric with a bit of stretch that feels sturdy. I ordered my usual 24 and it fitted fine, except for squashing my boobs a little. If you're bigger than a DD cup you might want to size up.

I'm trying to show you a close up of the amazing fabric, there's so much going on in it, and every time I look at it I see something new.
