Aussie Curves - Double Take

The dress: Kaleidoscope print body con dress
Bought from: Targets reasonably new plus size range, Bellecurve.
Price: $30 Boxing day sale
Size: I'm wearing a size 18
* Pictured below with op shopped London Rebel heels


Now this dress can easily be worn as it is but for this challenge I am going to show you two didderent ways you can wear this dress; and this principle really can apply to any dress you own.

Outfit 1 - Wear the dress as a skirt!
This body con dress it tight but not too tight allowing this black $5 op shopped peplum to fit nicely over the top. The gorgeous colours in this kaleidoscope print allows for plenty of different colours you can choose to accessorise with and I've just chosen this bluish/purple necklace I bought for myself from Ts14+ at Christmas time for $15 along with my $5 op shopped Barkins heels to complete the look of Outfit 1.

Outfit 2 - Wear the dress as a top 
 
This body con dress is tight enough to allow another skirt over it creating the illusion that it is actually a top. I've just slipped an op shopped black skirt that set me back $4 over the top, added a $2 op shopped belt and $2 op shopped bangle along with my $5 op shopped Barkins heels again and there you have it. Outfit number 2.

  1. I love this dress, you look fantastic and I love how you've worn it as a skirt and a top - makes it 3 pieces in one!

  2. THis is seriously fantastic. I love the extra mileage you're getting out of that dress, particularly because it's such a statement piece. What's especially mindblowing is that the top and skirt were thrifted! The way you've styled it makes it look like a capsule collection. This is why this is my favourite double take yet!
