HEY! Here we are. Already in Week 6 of the Aussie Curves challenges. Time flies when you’re having fun, right? So it turns out that Hubby and I are making a bit of a thing of taking these photos. We might go out for food after, sometimes before or we go for drive and have a chat in the car. It’s nice. It sort of makes up for the fact that he drives me batty when it comes to setting up the photos and getting what I need. But beggers, they can’t be choosers, right!

This week we were asked to sparkle. I expect there are going to be some fabulous, wonderful, bright and shiny outfits out there. I considered my options and was lucky enough to have inherited this jacket covered in sequins from Olivia at our last clothing trade. I’m going to put it aside to give back to her. No matter how much I love it, I’ll never wear it. She might as well sell it to a good home. A sparkly one. I hope. Maybe you want to buy it from her? Let me know.

Just quietly, this top is the next phase in my peplum addiction. I picked up this one in coral and black. I have big plans for these tops. The black one especially was bought small and will be making an appearance at the next race meet in town with my Virtu blue pencil skirt and some ridiculous heels. Adore. I’m lucky to have quite a stash of random skinny black belts that fit them perfectly so basically I’m done. No more shopping for me for a while. I’m changing sizes too fast and it’s costing me a fortune. In jeans/pants especially! But at least my shape has stopped changing for now.

But speaking of changing, my hair is longer AGAIN. I guess that will happen when you never cut it. The size of the buns I can make on top of my head are ridiculous. A good ridiculous, a fabulous ridiculous, the whole point ridiculous. But mad, none the less. I’m loving it actually. There’s nothing else I would rather do with my hair. Except maybe a rocking, blonde, pixie cut ah la Cate Blanchett. Maybe one day. After I get brave.

I had this plan, again, for photos that were going to be totally different to this. I’d planned to take the photos at the local race course. By the light of the headlights of my car. They give off this gorgeous white/blue light that I love. And I thought that the light would really hit the sequins on this jacket and make it shine.  Turns out, there’s a swap meet in town, and while I don’t mind a bit of public prancing for the camera, that’s just TOO public. Haha. But this, this bright and colourful wall was just as perfect, don’t you think. With my orange nails and coral top, it was almost MADE for this outfit. Expect to see more photos here. Hubby even said he’d bring his blower-vac to tidy up the ground next time. Love that man.
