Spin the Pin - June '15


I found this Spin the Pin very challenging. I tried to look at the pin from all different perspectives but all I could see was pastel. And as for pastel, well I hardly own any.
This is what I put together and I actually quite like it!






I think all it needs is the addition of a long necklace where the scarf is and I reckon I could make one with all the bits and pieces of jewellery I have lying around.

Outfit details:
• Ankle boots || GirlExpress || hand me downs (or ups) from my sister
• Pastel Skirt || Avella || $12.50 on sale at Big W
• Pastel blue cardi || Vigorella || Opshopped for $1 !!!!
• Black long sleeve top || Now || Opshopped for $2

Aussie Curves 3.0 - Polka Dots

Polka dots are one of quite a few patterns that I own hardly any of.


I recently did an awesome outfit with dots (see photo below) but [unforeseeably] used it for my Aussie Curves Black post! Silly. So I was left with a tight lycra dot crop that I'm not sure about and a couple of scarves which I have used both of in photos recently as its pretty darn cold here in Victoria, Australia.


Left with nothing, I decided to be "interpretive" and find something else resembling spots. So here we have my tie-dye polka dots!! 




Outfit details:
• Tie-dye polka dot top || Opshopped for $2 at a half price sale
• Long sleeve black top || Now || Opshopped for $2
• 3 button Jeans || City Chic || Recently bought on sale for $5
• Jacket || Autograph || Opshopped for $2 but I paid $12 cause it was so good!
• Headband || Mimco || Opshopped for  $5
• Fingerless gloves || I found them
• Docs Martens || bought off a friend about 15 years ago for $10
• Spike half earrings || 'Stolen' from my sister

Aussie Curves 3.0 - Date Night

LOL Date Night...what's that?!?!

I've never really been on a date so this is a hypothetical outfit for me at the moment...one of these days Charlene... One of these days.


I'm currently housesitting but I grabbed these pieces of clothing cause it totally worked in my head and did the photos now, last thing on a Sunday night.


Looking at the photos now I probably wouldn't wear this on a date (a dinner date in my mind) because its a bit OTT in my opinion so I'd probably swap the skirt for some black jeans but keep the black wedges so I don't look too casual.


I'd definately wear this City Chic top though! I'm a bit in awe if it at the moment. It's one of my most recent op shop bargains and it's so pretty and covered in jewels...how could any gal not love that!!



I'd also make sure I've painted my nails nicely just so I have some polish to scrape off if I got too nervous; this stops me biting my nails. How cute is this nail polish!?! Kook A Mango... And such a cool name too!! Say it... Kook A Mango


Outfit details:
  Bejewelled top || City Chic || Opshopped for $7
  Black skirt || Hot Options || Opshopped for $2.50 (I think)
  Black wedges || Opshopped for 50c
  Earrings || gifted by visiting Brazilian friend
  Nail polish || Sally Hansen Complete salon manicure Shade #560 Kook A Mango || Borrowed from my Sister in law.
  Photo bombing boxer dogs || currently being Dog-sat by me for my Bro & his Mrs.

Aussie Curves 3.0 - Floral

Girly is not one of my 'styles'. Automatically when I think Floral, I think it's gonna make me look really girly...


... however I think I've managed to avoid that 'too girly' look with this outfit. 

I think because the floral top is red based rather than pink based it subconsciously creates less of a 'girly' or 'feminine' look and more of a 'sexy' look.


Teaming this top with wet look scuba leggings by Harlow helps make this outfit work (well in my opinion anyway!). These leather look leggings have a cool edgy feel that even out the look of this outfit.

Adding the scarf and jacket completed this outfit. Not only because it is winter and freezing but because it created a bit more of a sophisticated ensemble.


Outfit details:
• Scuba wetlook leggings || Harlow || $40 on a Facebook closet clearout
• Floral top || Big Advantage || Opshopped for $5
• Jacket || Autograph || Opshopped for $2 but I paid $12 intentionally.
• Scarf/Snood || Opshopped
• Lip gloss || Hot Mamma by Chi Chi
• Heels || Miss Shop at Myer || On sale for $20
• Long sleeve black top underneath || Opshopped for $1.50
• Red bangle || Lovisa || $13 and actually fits over my wrists!

Aussie Curves 3.0 - Black


The challenge for Aussie Curves this week is black. I thought about going ALL black very briefly but decided against it as that was a habit I once had that I had to work very hard to get out of.


Instead I decided to experiment with this polka dot top which is basically black so I think it counts.



I ended up deciding that I didn't like this outfit on me. I didn't feel comfortable in it which I think was due to the combination of the high waist and high neck. But meh, I loved everything else about this outfit...basically all the black stuff...ironic



Outfit details:
• Polka dot top size 14 || Target || Opshopped for $1.50
• Long sleeve black top || Rosie and Dixie || Opshopped
• 3 button jeans || City Chic || On sale last week for $50
• Belt || Opshopped
• Silver ball earrings || Bricks and mortar store called 'Stella Accessories' || $8
• Fingerless gloves || An asian cheap store kind || Opshopped new for $1
• Jacket || No Label || Opshopped for $5
• Polka dot scarf || No label || Opshopped for $3
• Boots || City Chic by Wittner || 50% off last week making them $85
