Spin the Pin - July '15


Above is the 'Pin' for the month of July.
The aim is basically to use this picture or 'Pin' and use it as inspiration for an outfit and then post your version (or spin) of that outfit, linking it to a heap of other other woman also doing the same challenge.


It is amazing to see how many different outfits you can get just from the inspiration of one picture alone!
I know many others have looked at this pin and seen pattern clashing, blue, a stripey long sleeved top underneath but all I can think about is the dress and how It reminds me of this dress I own (below).


My dress (or tunic) is an opshopped bargain made by the brand Mesop.
I love the material it's made of and I find it's great to wear in this weather! I find the brands Metalicus, Vigorella and Mesop seem to have alot of designs in this kind of material. It is so warm and I sometimes wonder if it is a bit thermal because it keeps me so warm. 

Anyway my point is the blue dress in the original pin looks like the same kind of material, whether it is or not I couldn't find out. But I also think the patterns are similar, I'm not sure if it's the evenly spaced flowers or not but theres something there that is similar, I just can't put my finger on it!! Arrgh my brain is fried and its only Wednesday! LOL


I also added a plaid style scarf to create a tiny bit of pattern clash and also cause it is freezing in Bendigo (Victoria, Australia) where I live. We have such a chilly Antarctic breeze at the moment that baring my neck feels as if I'm completely naked and standing neck deep in a frozen over lake!!

Aussie Curves 3.0 - Coat


Aussie Curves 3.0 - Coat

This green coat by ASOS Curve was one of my very first purchases of this brand and of clothing on eBay really. I won it on an eBay auction for $20 and was stoked! 

I brought it half way through 2013 around the time I started Aussie Curves and my whole body positive journey so its a tad sentimental to me. 

Its a AUsize 26 so really a bit big for me which you cant tell if I wear it open. When I wore it yesterday I got so many compliments on the colour, which I also love, I really ought to wear it more, especially whilst it's so cold here!


It's also got a cute inner lining of flowers, which is a bit girly for me but a cute change every now and then never hurt anyone.


Outfit details:
• Green Macintosh winter jacket || ASOS Curve || eBay for $20 + $13 postage
• Scarf || Design Studio || Opshopped for $5
• Green top || Autograph || Bought off Facebook for $5
• Black jeans || City Chic || $50
• Boots || Autograph || Roughly $100

Aussie Curves 3.0 - Red


I love red. It's my favourite colour and from all the compliments I get when I wear it I would easily have to say the colour that looks the best on me.

I wore two 'red outfits' this week which is pretty normal for me. This second one I had the extra red in my hair which was pretty cool, plus cheap and temporary.

Aussie Curves 3.0 - Headwear

Headwear is not all about things you can wear in your hair, however it seems that's all I've managed to put together! Sure, if it was sunny I could wear some sunglasses or if I had an event to go to I'm sure I could find a forehead jewel but nope, hair stuff is all I did.


I wore quite a few bits and pieces in my hair over the week but only managed to photograph four so I'll just give you the quick downlow.


#effyourbeautystandards Outfit Details:
• #effyourbeautystandards tee || Tess Munster || $56 total for tee, two pins and postage from the USA
• Black jeans || City Chic || On sale for $50
• Hair flower || Lovisa || $5
• Earrings || Opshopped I think


Leopard print Outfit Details:
• Leopard print long vest || Opshopped but can't remember how much for
• Black jeans || City Chic || On sale for $50
• Black tunic || Moda || Opshopped for $2
• Brown drop earrings || Opshopped for $4
• Leopard print hair scarf || Opshopped



Monochrome Outfit Details:
• Grey tunic || Vigorella || Opshopped for $7
• Black long vest || Metalicus || Opshopped for $7
• Belt || Taking Shape 14+ Outlet || $3
• Hair scarf || free cause it had little holes in it
• Tights || Autograph || $10 (rather than $15) with boots purchase
• Wedge suede boots || Autograph || $100 with $15 voucher so $85

My fave? I love the red Amazing tee but then I also loved the monochrome outfit... Hmm and I love the whole #effyourbeautystandards movement, so it's hard for me to choose!

Aussie Curves 3.0 - Knit

A Knit. Hmm... The first thoughts that come to my mind are the typical knitted jumpers, you know the kind Grandmas make (huge stereotype there but you know what I mean!) Well I don't really have any of those types of knits... 
I'm not really good with material type knowledge, sewing techniques and all that stuff.
I have some jumpers that look like a knit but I'm sure they would be machine made... And I have others that are called knits but don't look like one at all.
So I went with an easy one that definitely fits into my personal definition of a knit.


I opshopped this jumper.... Sorry, this knit years ago for $5. Its by Sportscraft, obviously quite a while ago by the look of the tag. It's is a bit baggy but so comfy and doesn't irritate my skin because it's 100% cotton; And its an awesome colour on me too!



On my way out of work the day I took these photos I grabbed a bag of stuff I'd cleaned out of my locker and I found another knit! Typical!


Outfit Details:
• Knit || Sportscraft || Opshopped for $5
• Black three button jeans || City Chic || bought recently on sale for $50
• Long sleeve black top || Now || Opshopped for $2
• Black scarf || Opshopped for $3
• Boots || Doc Martens || from a friend over a decade ago for $10
• Earrings || Vintage || From Vinnies I think for $2/$4 ??
• Biggest red Bangle || Lovisa || $13
• 2 thinner red bangles are actually something from a baby's toy
• Army green knitted cardi || Cheap Monday || Opshopped for $3


Not long left for the Aussie Curves challenges and I'm not sure if there will be some after these finish in a few weeks...why not join in for the rest?!?
