This week’s #aussiecurves challenge is PICNIC and the Melbourne Weather Gods threw us a glorious day for a picnic! And by picnic, I mean I sat in my garden (and on my porch) and ate donuts from Olympic Doughnuts in Footscray. They’re positively the most delicious jam and cinnamon donuts in the city. Walkers wins at fancy fill (ha), and Byron Bay Organic Doughnuts win at dark chocolate filled, but Olympic wins at jam and cinnamon. And being in my local ‘hood…
But I digress.
This is my picnic look, ‘cos you never know when a picnic is going to turn into a hillbilly hoedown, right?
This top is so great. When I bought it, I thought I would feel like Gaga. Instead, I feel like i’m wearing a durian on each shoulder. But still, I ain’t mad.
I bought these overalls secondhand over the summer, and I was pretty stoked to find them. So much so I way overpaid for them. But it’s been my life’s mission to find the perfect pair. I can die now (although i’d rather not).
If you look closely, you can see my earrings are a tea party set! They were a gift 🙂
Now that’s out of the way, can we talk about other exciting things? Like the CURVY COUTURE ROADSHOW! Which is only 10 days away! Sam is coming with me, and i’m so goddamn excited. If you’re not already, you absolutely MUST come. It’s the first plus-size show to be included in Melbourne Fashion Week, and the first to promote independent designers. And there’ll be stalls. I’ma spend sooooooo much moneh!
