What I Wore - Inspiration Miranda Hobbes

I've got my second Sex and The City outfit for you today! And, I've been watching! I just finished season 3 yesterday. But, I don't think I'll have time to start season 4 until tomorrow, but I am really enjoying it so far!

This week I've chosen Miranda as my inspiration. I think she is my favourite character. Here is the inspiration

And here is my outfit. I had a lot of fun taking these shots!

I realised when taking these photos, that I have no black strappy sandals! Not that I probably need them till next summer now.

Skirt - ASOS Curve
Shoes - Target

This outfit was another easy one for me to recreate. I've got Samantha all lined up, but I'm still having trouble with Charlotte!

Life Lately

I had an amazing weekend this weekend. Jesse had Friday and Sunday off. We took full advantage!

It all started Friday morning when I caught up with 2 of the Perth Curvettes for brunch, in which I ordered pancakes and fries. 

My 'Damn, I look good today' face. 
Friday night Kate from Sparkles and Lace held a party for her blogs first birthday. We headed down to Devilles for some cocktails and dancing. And we totally brought it, we all look so gorgeous!

I'm wearing Hell Bunny B Movie dress

Sarah from Fatshioning It Up

Alex from Jet Georgette

The Perth Curvettes Founders

We love this mirror for selfies!

Alex, Kate, Sarah & Katie. Love these ladies!

Some other Perth Curvettes joined us! Marnie and Tegan!

Possibly the best photo ever taken

Jesse knows that Alex and I might just run away together. 

Apart from the disappointing food, it was a really fun night out!

Saturday was spent lazing with Kransky

He has the best faces. 

On Sunday there was a food truck festival called the Perth Food Truck Rumble that was being held at the Perth Cultural Centre. They were also running a Film Noir festival at the same venue, later that night. So, we decided to head down about 4ish, eat a lot of food, then watch the movie at 7pm. There were playing Double Indemnity, which is Jesse's favourite film. 

I was totally starving by the time we got there, having saved myself for all the goodness, only to find it was mostly all sold out :( I started with some Pork Belly pizza, which I didn't snap because I was too hungry!

Snickers cupcake from Kustom Cupcakes

Cupcake competition Jesse wanted me to enter

Duck Dumpling from Jumplings

Cheese Fries from Butty's
Really, the only thing I missed out on was a Rib burger from Butty's, and although I was disappointed about that, I was really impressed with the rest of the food I ate. 

Then we snuggled down to watch the film. When it was finished we headed home to catch up on Hannibal (and maybe have some tea and toast!)

See, amazing weekend!

A Little Rant

I'm a member of quite a few clothing groups on Facebook. Not all of them are exclusively plus size, but the discussions that come up in so many of them make me want to scream. 

So many women out there have a wardrobe of clothes that don't fit them. They're 'holding on to them until they lose weight'. NO! And, all the other women encourage this kind of behaviour. I'm not saying it isn't ok to lose weight, absolutely, if that's the path you've chosen, then that's fine, that's your choice and no one else can or should judge you. But to have a wardrobe full of clothes that don't fit you is simply the wrong way to go about life. 

Why, you ask? Because you end up with a wardrobe of clothes that don't fit, and therefore a world of heartbreak every time you go to get dressed, because your clothes don't fit, which leads to more body hatred. My advice? Get rid of every single bit of clothing that does not fit you or you do not like on. Sell them. Then use the money to buy clothes that fit. There is nothing more empowering that pulling out a dress that you know fits your body perfectly, that you feel great in, to make you confident in your body. 

Do it. You can thank me later.

What I Wore - The Geisha Dress

I went to get my hair trimmed this morning. I'm in a hair dilemma. I don't know what to do with the colour. Contemplating a lilac...? Anyway, I decided to throw on a pretty dress!

Half way through taking photos in this spot, I remembered why I don't take photos in this spot. Stupid sun!!

I love picking up the blue in this dress with either blue shoes, or my blue cardi. 

Cardigan - Mix Apparel
Dress - Hell Bunny
Shoes - Kmart

I picked up a few of these cardigans from Mix. They were $15, and they aren't bad!

My, I just love these dresses!!

What I Wore - Inspiration Carrie Bradshaw

So, the Perth Curvettes April challenge is Sex and The City. It shocked them to know that I have never actually watched it. We started to watch it together, but we always end up gabbing through it all (hey, we're girls, it's what we do) so I've seen up to halfway through season 2. 

I'm kicking off this challenge with Carrie. As soon as I saw this outfit, I knew I had to use it as my inspiration.

And here is my take on the outfit:

I really love tulle. I need more of it in my wardrobe. I love how Carrie had made a tulle skirt look effortless. I would totally wear that shopping, or out to lunch and not feel overdressed. 

Can we just take a moment for these shoes. They are so amazing. And I managed to pick them up for $20 on sale after lusting over them for weeks!

So, there you have it. That's my outfit inspired by Carrie Bradshaw!

Things I Love Thursday

I know I said last week that I was feeling that this was a bit stale, but I've seen SOOOO many things this week, I just had to share!

Via ASOS Curve

The only thing that would make this jacket more perfect is if it was in black. I love everything else about it though, and I could make it fit in my wardrobe, even though it's white. 

Via ASOS Curve

I really dig these jeggings. I like the zip. Also, they look super skinny, which is how I like my jeans. 

Via Sourpuss

These need to be mine. I don't care how. They just need to be mine. I need these. This is non negotiable. 

Via designosaurYEAH

I totally love these dinosaur stacking rings. If only they made them for fat fingers!

Via I Love Science

I am still yet to buy a brain necklace!! I can't believe it! I need some so bad! I work with brains every day, and I love them so much!

Via I Love Science
Now these. These are neurons. I am buying these. No ifs, ands or buts. I need these in my life. I want to wear them every day, with everything, everywhere. I do not have the words to accurately express how much I love these earrings. 

SEE!! how much cool stuff!!! Well, now I'm off to take Kransky for a walk, and have a brownie :)
