Aussie Curves – Stripes

October 7, 2013


Stripes! I have to say, stripes are always something I’ve been drawn to. I’ve never listened to the whole “fat people shouldn’t wear horizontal stripes”. In fact, I wore a striped dress to MBFF 2 years ago.aussiecurves-stripes-01

Around the same time last year, we had the same theme of Stripes and I wore my leggings (see here), so I dug into my closet for something different. Luckily, I got this jacket out of layby the past week! Perfect! City Chic have released a whole lot of striped things recently, and after trying on nearly everything, I settled on this jacket. It’s lightweight and super comfy.

The dress is a Kmart score, from their straight section in a size 18. It’s a bit short, but it’s sooo comfy and I have a feeling it will probably get a lot of wear this summer. I don’t usually go for things that are so tight and have a seam at my hips, but I think it looks okay styled like this. Plus, it was $15!!aussiecurves-stripes-04

I’m really really loving the monochrome trend at the moment, I already have a fair amount of black in my wardrobe, but white is a colour I never thought i’d wear. Its funny how times change. I never thought i’d ever be blonde either! aussiecurves-stripes-05

  • Monochrome ftw. I adore those shoes and bow badge! Love the Beetlejuice theme. 🙂

  • Thank you! I thought you might like the shoes and badge!

  • Thank you! Feeling quite good! I’ve always loved black, but never wore white much before, it’s something thats a bit strange for me to really like all of a sudden, I guess that is the power of fashion trends though!

  • Thank you 🙂

  • Thank you! xo

  • Thought you may be! <3

  • Hee, thank you! I’m glad you like it!

  • I don’t wear them enough, but I couldn’t resist pairing them with the jacket!

  • Thank you! I think I need to make an effort to wear them more often! I get into a rut and tend to wear one pair over and over, even though I have around 70 pairs of shoes!

  • Thank you 🙂

  • This is from a month or so ago, they just got it in stock the day I layby’d it. I was talking to the lady who worked there and she said they had it in plain black a week or so before and it sold so quickly. Thank heavens for laybys!

  • That is one of the best compliments ever!

  • You know me too well! 🙂

  • Love the touch of Beetlejuice to the outfit. You look so rad.
