I had my outfit all chosen, and my post written, but I’ve ended up somewhere totally different for this week’s Aussie Curves challenge – Metallic! That’s why I love this challenge – forcing me to think outside the box!
On Saturday morning, I dashed to the shops to buy a black jacket for my trip to Melbourne in a couple of weeks and got some collateral items – most of which are included in this post 🙂 nothing better than showing off some new bargains!
Starting with the jumper… It’s Valley Girl, and it’s a M… To be fair – it’s a little shorter than I would ideally like, and if they had a L, I would have bought it in that size – but the point is more that the M fits fine – it’s not a shop I have ever paid attention to in the past on the assumption that nothing would fit – I’m so glad that Suger styled a Valley Girl jumper in her Leather AC post – it’s opened up a whole new shop of possibilities 🙂 this jumper was on sale for $15!
The slouchy blazer is another new purchase – from Best and Less. I’m actually wearing the size 18 from their straight size line, but Lily and Lou do a +size version with a white, blue or leopard print lapel. I love the slouchy front pockets and the 3/4 sleeves. All winter clothing at Best and Less is currently 30%off too – it’s worth checking out. I had another 5 or 6 items I could have easily bought too – it’s another store that is a bit unexpected for style pieces – but I have always found it worth checking out…
Straight after work I’m heading out to dinner with my hubby’s family for a 70th birthday. I will be wearing everything but the pants to work today (I will put on plain black pants) as the metallic jeans are just a bit too much for the office. I’ll pop these fab pants on before I head to dinner!
Jumper: Valley Girl
Blazer: Best and Less
Necklace: eQuip (and another worn as a bracelet)
Shoes: Rubi Shoes
So today’s post, although Metallic themed, seemed to be more about my Saturday morning shopping trip… But it’s always good to share bargains (or enable those around you to spend their money)…
