OMG off the runway almost sent me into a crazy spiral of self-doubt. Runway, like I said to the ladies on the Aussie Curves Facebook page, is like declaring that you believe that your outfit is current and trendy and awesome. Runway worthy. And what if you’re wrong!? Awkward. Haha. But then Claire reminded me that I’m a fashion blogger, clearly I’m NOT wrong they are and I had to laugh at that.

So we’re going with THAT.

I opted to create a dinner date outfit using the sheer panelled flocked bodysuit I picked up by ASOS Curve from Curvy Cartel. Sheer is something almost all the folks sending clothes down the runway agree on. And what I wouldn’t have given to be able to pair it was a pleated or full midi-skirt. But alas, I’m working with what I have soooo I think the Bellecurve skirt makes the perfect va-va-voom stand in. Yes?

I also opted to pair the nude and black colour theme with more of the same using some old favourite cap-toe shoes and an oversized clutch with gold accents. The gold was important after I changed to the Bellecurve skirt, I think. It ties in the gold zip detail without overpowering the showstopper that is the bodysuit. I meant it’s pretty hard to upstage a sheer bodysuit but it coooooould happen. Haha.

What trends are you adopting from the runway to your wardrobe this season?Β 


  • Wow, such a great look, you’ve totally nailed it! Love the nude and black together, the zipper skirt the pattern on your body suit… love all of it!!! Super sexy and stylish πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Alison. Phew! I was nervous. Well, until I saw the pics, then I was like, great! Still wish I had a midi skirt {for the theme more than anything} but YAY.

  • The asymmetrical zip detailing with this skirt is awesome!

  • Adore this look Melissa … That body suit is gorgeous, perfect with your colouring. Styled to perfection ❀️

  • Between this skirt and the black embossed top that Jo is wearing, you guys are making it very hard going on my 5 Piece French Wardrobe quest. πŸ˜‰

    • Haha. Lucky you’re not French! πŸ˜›

      But seriously, just remove an item or two from your wardrobe and bring new stuff in. I’ve started another major cull as all the new season stuff arrives at my house. It’s a tricky thing to stay on top of.
