Aussie Curves: Strapless...eeeek!




"And with the passing of pastels week we have...I'm sorry what was that?...strapless? STRAPLESS?!! Ewwwwwwww, no!!!!"

That was my internal dialogue when I was checking what was next on the Aussie Curves challenge list. lol. This week's outfit challenge has by far been the hardest for me. My arms are my biggest "no go zone" haha. We all have that one part of our body that when dressing we make sure to cover up or dress in a way that is more flattering than others. For me its a no brainer..."cover those arms girl!" This is at the top of the list especially when I'm headed out clubbing or dancing coz one way or another these arms of mine end up waving around in the air and yeah I just like to have that ishh handled lol.

So yes, that being said this weeks challenge had me a bit scared to be in front of the camera because I don't think I've had my bare arms out in the world since I was like 6...haha let alone freezing them in time forever in these pics...YAY for a liberation that was all mine today! Thanks Aussie Curves for the push!

My OOTD:

I went for a bit of an earthy look basing my outift around my skirt and its colours and patterns. I added the colour block bracelet cuff for a bit of rich burst in between the earthy tones and the wedge heels for a bit of height! Ladies with size 11W feet like mine check out Target for these babies! Super comfy with a sensible heel that won't kill your life! I'm still searching for a pair in black...they're all sold out where I am! :'( lol.





Black tube bra, $10 Fashion Fair/ Patterned skirt, $6 MS Op shop/ Ankle strap wedge heels, $32 Target/ Beaded bracelet cuff, $6 Diva/ Feather earrings, $3 Diva





When it comes to the arm department do you cover up or let it all hang out?!! Either way I think the most important thing is how YOU feel and how this effects the way you carry yourself when stepping out the door for the day or night! If it makes you happy grab it by the balls and run as far as you can with whatever it is that makes your heart smile!! haha! :)

Have THE BEST week ladies!

Big love x

  1. You look fantastic! I used to cover my arms but now Im just a bit eh don't care now. Have noticed that doing weight training defiantly gets them toned now and I'm almost proud of my arms now even though they are 2 sizes bigger than when I did cover them!
