This weekend has been packed full of activity, with everything happening all at once. Why does that always happen? You'll go weeks without anything until you start to wonder if you actually have friends, and then every single person you've ever met is having the party of the year on the one night!
Tonight it was two 30th birthday parties one of which was 1920's themed and the perfect opportunity to meet this weeks Aussie Curves theme; LBD.
A Little Black Dress is known as being many women's staple piece that is instantly classy and polished. For me? Well I'm not a huge fan. I love colour and for me black is just a little drab. Although a lot of my hesitance to embrace black is stubbornness. You know the rule? Black is slimming so if you're bigger stick to it? And you know my philosophy; fuck the rules!
However the 1920's theme was a great opportunity to rediscover the beauty and classiness of black. I've had this dress for a while and have never known how to wear it. It's just a little too big, a little too long. But it is absolutely stunning with intricate beading and quality material. I was really contemplating selling it but I think I'll hang on to it a little longer...
