Aussie Curves: Pastels

This weeks Aussie Curves calls for pastels. Now if I was at home or not working full time then I could have found something different, but alas I live here in Mildura and I work full time so I have neither the time nor my usual stock of clothes BUT I did go to church to today and I did wear my adorable vintage bow dress with splashes of pastel purple. I picked it up a few weeks ago in Merbein at the Red Cross store . If you follow me on instagram then you would have seen a photo of the dress but here it is on me. 

I love this dress because this dress doesn't need much else and it's good for someone like me who is always running late. I wore my dress with my comfortable lace wedge boots and I also added a belt to hold my dress in place because it's just a little too long and with the belt and a little fold it creates a better shape and length for my short body.

Sometimes I feel like I'm a little lazy with accessories but I am a big believer in letting the clothes stand out and speak for themselves. Face and lips are neutral for that very same reason. The pattern, the pastel purple, pink and dark green create enough interest for me. 




Voting for the NAVABI Blog Award is still open. HUGE thanks to all those who have voted for me.....If you haven't yet and you would like to vote for me then you can find me HERE. I'm 10 on the list and it's so easy. Just click on me and vote. No sign up required ;)





So my friends. What are you wearing? Lusting over? Dreaming about? I'm trying to figure out life plans and money. There are a few big trips planned for next year and that all needs money but being a teacher you can't exactly pick up and leave whenever you want to SOOOOOO I guess I just have to decide something and soon.






Big Love,


Falala Mele.

  10. I love this so very much. Great dress and I agree, this needed the restrained awesomeness of nude make-up and minimal accessories. Spot on as always. Loving your style, it's proving such an inspiration for me. xo

  11. Thanks Suger xo I think this challenge has been good for me....I haven't posted as much stuff as often and the challenges force me to wear things I don't usually opt for first choice....But I have been enjoying the challenge and seeing all of our own individual styles develop and flourish.
