There was so many amazing things at Curvy Couture Roadshow, I honestly felt a little overwhelmed. The fact that i’m super broke (& failing at saving) didn’t help the fact either. There was at least one thing I could have happily walked away with from every designer, but I thought i’d share my absolute favourites with you. Above, is the most amazing dress from Marji & Jean, and if it had been in my size, it would have come home with me. Sadly, it was a size 18. PINK WATERMELONS!
17 Sundays! I’ve been lusting after these items for awhile, but seeing them in person made me want them even more. I have a 17 Sundays top from a previous collection, and it’s SO soft and comfortable. I was happy to see that the new Afterglow tee’s are the same.
LEFT – Harlow gave us a look at some of the new pieces in person! The Endless Love Cardicoat took my breath away! With a move to Melbourne in my future, I’m thinking it might be one of those pieces I’ll need to add to my wardrobe! It’s set to be available in May, and is $249.00. I also love the Rapture faux wrap skirt (Available April at $139) and the Cross my Heart blouse (Available May at $139.00)
RIGHT - Another coat! Yes, I know! But look at it! Seeing it in person, seeing the way it moves and sways, swirls, well, it was love! It is the Iceni Coat by Bombshell Vintage. It’s $225 & made to order, so it takes a little time. For an extra $25, they will make to measure. You can also choose a custom colour, I’m LOVING the pale pink!
If i’m being honest, I want nearly everything from Misty Belvideres Mermadia collection. Above are my two favourites, the transparent darkness dress and the Mermadian dress. I also really love some of the more simple items in the collection, like the Euxine Shrug (for those days when I want to hide my arms, I’ve come along way in my body confidence, but I still have so insecure days.) and the Molyneaux Tank, both under $50.
Annnd that wraps up my posts from Curvy Couture Roadshow. I had such an amazing time and I’ve got my fingers & toes crossed that more events like this happen in Australia.
I didn’t take too many random snaps during the day, trying to save camera battery, but I did take a few. So i’ve decided to round them all up into this post. Above was the gorgoues print selection on dresses by Marji & Jean.
Ashley is super adorable eatting her fairy floss! It matched her outfit perfectly. It was the first time I got to meet Ashley, as well as Liv. It’s nice to get to meet people that you know from online. I still need to work on not being so shy, but I think I did okay!
Ahhh, behind the scenes of Outfit photos!! I always find it interesting to watch other people get their outfit photos taken. Suger and Liv both seem so natural in front of the camera. I take most of my outfit photos by myself, so I always feel so awkward when I have someone else taking the photos for me!
More Ashley and I!
I’ve been lusting after this 17 Sundays jacket for what seems like over a year now, and finally seeing it (& feeling it) in person has made me want it even more!
I am SUPER in love with Gemma Flacks artwork for the event. The Silvana Tedesco display was so gorgeous! I’ve always thought if I was to get married, I’d have a non traditional coloured dress, but seeing these couture pieces in person had me wanting a beautiful flowing ivory gown.
More 17 Sundays awesomeness!
I also met Hayley Hasselhoff. She was so gosh darn beautiful in person and very nice! Sadly, my photo turned out blurry! I blame her total babeness, my camera just couldn’t handle it!
I learnt a couple of things at the CCR, and one of those is, make sure your camera batteries are all charged, and even if they are, bring the charger along anyway. I arrived on the day with 2 battery packs, and as the catwalk started, the first set died. Cue me running off to the media room to try and dig out my other battery pack. Sigh. So I missed out on seeing a few of these.
I have much love for all these labels, though only own 17 Sundays and Harlow items. While I am on a major spending ban, I did pick up one thing, a Harlow top on sale, but I’ll be doing a post on my CCR lustlist! That will include the 17 Sundays outfits in the dual pictures below. WANT!
Boy did the models rock this! One of the things I loved about the show was that it incorporated so many different body shapes and sizes. I loved seeing plus size ladies strut their stuff in gorgeous clothes, and in lingerie! It was refreshing, and the crowd went nuts for it! My camera also didn’t like to focus on sequins, I am super sad I couldn’t get a focused shot on THIS AMAZING dress by Bombshell Vintage. If I ever get married, I want to wear that dress!
Again, with camera batteries! My camera died during the Misty Belvidere set, and I wanted to cry. I took the time to sit and just watch the rest of the show and loved getting caught up in watching, rather then snapping away pictures. I think this show may have been my favourite, just because of such individuality in the designs. Seraphim, Misty Belvedere and Marji & Jean were my faves!
