Aussie Curves – Sparkle

April 28, 2014 Fashion Outfits


With the way I’m attracted to anything that shines, glitters or sparkles, I think I must have been a magpie in a past life. I love sequins, gems and the latest trend of holographic items, when this skirt popped up on ASOS I fell in love, but was unsure if it would fit me.


One thing I’ve learnt is that you can’t rely on the numbers on clothing. My wardrobe houses items from a size 10 to 26. You need to learn your body shape and read descriptions of items. Many items have a LOT of stretch. I figured seeing as the skirt has an elastic waist and accordian pleats, there would be a good chance it would fit, and it does. It is the most glorious material,Β it catches the light brilliantly, changing colours and shining beautifully.


I had a bit of trouble stying it, then realised, I really just needed a plain top, to let it speak for itself. This top always makes me think of Jet Georgette (one of my blogger crushes), the comfy grey material paired with the pleather sleeves adds a bit of an ‘edge’ to the outfit.


I love these shoes, they are super comfy, though they do sometimes make squeaking sounds when I walk. I bought them a couple of years ago and they’ve had a lot of wear. I love that they are super easy to clean and they go with nearly anything!

    I’ve recently started trying straight sizes too. A lot of my hold-up was the fear of embarrassment, but I agree that knowing your fabrics helps. Is there something better than a statement necklace? Because that lobster would be it! LOVE!

  • What a perfect outfit.. especially that skirt and shoes! <3

  • flashionaffair

  • Wow that skirt really is holographic! A magpie would love that!

  • Love that necklace! Cute outfit xx

  • Thank you!

  • It really is! That’s why I took the last picture, to try and show just how shiny it as, as while the full body do show it to an extent, it doesn’t give the full detail.

  • Thank you! I’m actually really proud of it cause I was stumped for a bit as to how to style it.

  • Thank you!

  • I’ve been exploring more and more into straight sizes, and especially with the ‘oversized’ trend thats been in fashion, it means a lot more things fit. It’s good too because you can often pick up more ‘on trend’ pieces and sometimes at cheaper prices.

  • I loooove it!

  • Isn’t it just!? I’m so glad I took a chance and bought it!

  • I lovvve midi skirts! I’m such a skirt fan, and I tend to wear midi’s in winter as I’m very fussy about maxis.

  • Thank you sweety! xo

  • Hee, it’s the first time i’ve worn it! This one and my dinosaur one get SO MANY compliments!

  • I kkkknow! Keep an eye on ASOS as they often restock things, I got this in a restocking.

  • Hehehe, I’ve been very unicorn inspired! I have an outfit coming up soon that I think you’ll LOVE!

  • Thank you!

  • Thank you! xo

  • I know! Total drool worthy! I’m glad I took the chance and ordered it!

  • Thank you! I’ve made it a goal to try and wear more accessories, I’ve been so slack with them lately.

  • There’s a DINOSAUR!!!!? Have you posted photos of that one? What kind of dinosaur?

  • Miss Busy

    I couldn’t agree more! I love to hit up Gap clearances sales. I find that I’m able to wear an XL in most of their pieces.

  • OMG that last picture is so sparkly. LOVE it!!!
