Aussie Curves | Sparkle...

What girl doesn't love a bit of sparkle?  Bling jewellery, metallic and satin fabrics, sequins, and's all good!
With a theme like "sparkle", it's a great excuse to dress up! I've been looking for an excuse to pop on this frock for the longest time. I just love it's floral metallic overlay. It's so pretty and feminine...and would make the perfect dress to wear for the Spring racing carnival. I'd need a much bigger fascinator of course! lol.
As this dress only has thin straps, I like to wear a satin bolero jacket over the top to cover up my upper arms, and to provide extra warmth.  In summer, I pop on a light-weight sparkly cardigan instead.
I have kept the accessories to a minimum...a couple of chunky plastic bangles, and a bling dome ring...just enough to add a little interest, and not to compete with the busy fabric.
I love these peep toe heels. They've been in my wardrobe for the longest time, and they get a wear on special occasions only. I'm not normally a big fan of heels, especially skyscraper stilettos. These ones have loads of support and are super comfortable.
It seems a shame to dress up for a photo shoot and not go anywhere...I really should have arranged a date with hubby! lol. Next time. Do you have a special dress hanging in your wardrobe? Go and put it on...even if it's just to watch television in. Dressing up is fun!
