Curvy Couture Roadshow in Australia!

Last year, I became friendly with Kerry Pietrobon who's the designer and owner of the Harlow Brand in Australia. Harlow quickly became a fast favourite of mine, and I've posted on the brand several times. I LOVE it. The quality is amazing and the brand pays attention to Curvy women and our bodies.

I am PROUD to say that Kerry is one of the people setting up the Curvy Couture Roadshow in Australia. This is an event that's aiming to give a platform to independent and emerging designers within the 14+ Arena. The Roadshow will be a place to showcase designs, whilst also being a PART of Melbourne Fashion Week. Ah. Amazing. 

There are loads of brands onboard and the aim is to let plus women know that there are loads of great options in the fashion world downunder. If you're in Oz - you should really, really try and get along. Tickets here.

I *bet* that if this goes successfully - it will become a yearly staple, which is amazing and wonderful!

You little Hound!

So. Work starts again! Of course. In an effort for me to have a better work/life balance, I'm going ahead and attempting to blog again! Let's see how I go! I've had some beautiful time off, regrouped, seen some loved ones and here I am!

Things have been good. Busy but good. This next show is a biggie, so I'm scrambling to get organised before things really kick off. This is one of the outfits I've worn to work in the last few weeks and was found at Fashion World. The top is light, sheer and oversized - it feels good on my body and has a type of "boxy" quality about it. You can see, because it's see-thru, I'm chosen to wear it with a cami. The top is Polyester, and does make me sweat a little - so despite being flowy - I will need to wash this pretty regularly if I want to wear it a lot.

The skirt, I love. The skirt is super simple, but has quickly become a wardrobe staple. It says the fabric is "PU", but it really just wears like a quilted, stretchy cotton. The length hits just above my knee and it has an elastic waist. This skirt is banging and since getting it, I haven't stopped wearing it. I ADORE it.

I hope you are all great. At the end of last year, I took a bunch of photos in different outfits, but getting them online was a struggle. I'll try harder for 2014.

Dressolutions with Marisota, yo!

Basically, I just wanted to drop by and post an outfit, yo!

And there's more to come. And soon?! WHAT?

Today, I'm in fashions via Marisota... The dress is Joe Browns, and Blazer is from Marisota's own Collection. I like this combined look and wore the outfit to dinner with my partner (YAY! DARCY gets a mention in the first post back!!).

The dress itself is light and lined with a colourful, plaited belt. The blazer is also nice and light, and has a cool striped lining, which is why I rolled up the sleeves (it's also why I wanted the blazer. I like how the cuffs can change how the jacket looks - SO SIMPLE). I like this outfit as it's smart, but also - casual and breezy. I'm off contract at the moment and I want to look good but with minimal effort.

You can imagine, if I'd straightened my hair and perhaps popped on a chunky gold necklace, this would have made the look a little more polished. That being said, as most of you know, the last four months have seen me working my butt off on the latest Brad Pitt film looking like this:

I was in a trailer, on location, wearing jeans and a parka and I was constantly covered in mud. Luckily, there was also some of this...

In any case, fashion moments for me were few and far between. However... With the show all wrapped and a more normal film about to start up - my dresses are back, and so too are my fashions. ALSO - with TWO major events next week thanks to Evans and Simply Be - there'll be some awesome fashions to boot.

Since I started on my break, I have really got into Blazers - it actually started a little last year. I have no doubt, the blazer in this post will be worn loads and probably show up on the blog a bunch more times. The "fat girl/blazer" trend has been around for years, but here I am - finally jumping on the band wagon. AND I'm growing my hair again. Well. We'll see if I manage THAT this time!

I've missed you all loads. Thanks for your patience.
