Aussie Curves - Feminine

So I'm super late to the game, but here is my first ever Aussie Curves post!  I've delated posting this for a while because I was trying to figure out how to actually sort out all these links but I think I've got it haha

I've had this dress for maybe 5 years now and can you believe this is the first time I've actually worn it. I got it on eBay way back when and it fit perfectly. Just like it was made for my body. But as the years have come and gone my weight has gone up and down and now its become more of a snug fit but it still makes me feel 'womanly'. This dress makes me feel like a woman in the 60s starting to feel a revolution or something. 

I recently bought some new boots from Autograph because my old ones have fallen apart. My old boots were by Autograph as well and have been with me all around the world. I had only had them two years but I wore the shit out of them and I'm honestly surprised I hadn't destroyed them sooner haha
The new boots are more pointy than the old ones and I'm not too much of a fan of that but they just look really sleek and were $50 on sale so I just couldn't resist. When I put them on with this outfit, its like they were made for it. I seriously felt like a go-go dancer with them on with this dress 

Sam and I went out for tea and I felt a little out of place (I always feel out of place where we live anyway), but then I thought fuck it, I'm fabulous and fancy as hell. So I proceeded to order the girliest cocktail on the menu. ;)

Dork in a car sweater

Met up with my gals last week for a belated birthday breakfast and some cupcake eating. Its been so bloody windy and cold in Melbourne lately. This is the only photo where my skirt hadn't blown up from the wind. I'm the worst when it comes to photos with my friends. I'm too busy having giggles and chatting to take photos of anything (for the most part), so I don't really have any photos from the actual day. We had a late breakfast down Degraves St and it was mega crowded then we got cupcakes and had to split from there.

Tay got me these adorable little arrow earrings! I'm in love.

I've got to post my outfit pics from my actual birthday but I seem to have lost them in the vast expanse of folders I have on my computer... I'll get back to that when I find them haha

It was far too cold to take a photo outside so my bedroom wall will have to do. We went to DFO to do some shopping and I haven't worn this jumper in foreverrrrrrr. When putting this jumper on I realised that I always buy jumpers in smaller sizes (well, they're just the largest sizes that the straight sized stores sell) and they always don't fit like they were intended to. On me they end up being crop sweaters which (for the most part is just how I like 'em)

Oh, and... I FOUND TWINKIES! Oh man! you don't understand how excited I was! Granted, they were $3 each but hey, I can justify that for rare American imported treats. It made me want to fly back to America and go back to Brooklyn and eat them in Vineapple Cafe while typing up a thesis or something on my laptop.

Kitengi felt she needed to be included in this post too. She's spending more and more time upstairs and is sleeping on our bed again which is excellent. She's acting like a little kitten lately and is really into taking selfies haha

Hollywood Costume

Last week I caught up with a friend from Sydney. It turned out to be cold and windy and pretty overcast which was sucky but that didn't stop us from having some fun in the city! We had lunch at my fave Japanese place in the city and didn't shut up for ages haha we had quite a lot to catch up on. 

After lunch we treated ourselves to cupcakes and coffee at Little Cupcakes down Degraves St. Then head to the Hollywood Costume Exhibition.

I was so bummed that we couldn't take any photos! The people inside the exhibition were patrolling the floor and were keeping an intense eye on everyone making sure not one photo was taken (I'm sure some people would've slipped through and taken some gems but we were fairly unlucky in that department.). There were so many iconic costumes! I was honestly not expecting as many costumes to be shown. It was magnificent. We arrived fairly late in the day so we didn't have as much time as I'd have liked to study everything but nevertheless it was fantastic. If anyone is keen to check it out, its open for another week at ACMI in Federation Square.

Standing in places

These photos are all basically the same except I'm standing in different directions to the sun. Sam is my little photographer and, well, lets just be blunt, he could be better haha 
We stayed at Sams folks place while they were away for a few nights just so we could be out of our house for a little while. Change of scenery, I guess. We went for an awesome breakfast at a cafe around the corner. I've been having some major cravings for eggs and mushrooms lately. I just want to eat breakfast for every meal of the day. I also just want to wear sneakers forever. I bought these in New York because my Converse runners had just fallen apart and I had to throw them away. They are the comfiest things I've ever put on my feet. I wish I could wear runners to work. ugh
