Holy cow it’s Aussie Curves time again. With all the rain and horribleness around here lately, there really wasn’t much to get dressed up about. Especially not getting dressed up in this week’s Retro inspired outfit. I knew I wanted to show off my town. I knew I wanted to wear my newest eBay score, this amazing striped, pleated circle skirt. So I waited. The rain continued for days and days. My town flooded AGAIN. And I waited some more. Finally a peek of sunshine arrived and I pounced on my moment. YES!

I started with a button up tuxedo shirt I picked up from ASOS a couple of years ago. I swear this thing is as crisp as it was the day it arrived. It does gape a little at the chest a little but that’s me and button ups. We just don’t see eye to eye. I like my bra on the inside. It, not so much. But I try and try because who doesn’t love a white shirt, right? Speaking of love. How adorable is this skirt!? It’s a bit amazing. I picked it up on eBay a few weeks ago. I’m pretty sure the seller is out there somewhere. She totally busted me asking whether I was Melissa from Suger Coat It… It WAS. Ha. So Hi! I’ll leave feedback soon, promise. You rocked. I love my skirt. Add a necklace collar, a wide belt and some pointy shoes and hey presto.

So there, my friends, is my retro inspired outfit. I certainly felt very retro wearing it. There’s just something about a full skirt and a high neckline that says olden days to me. Olden days are THE BEST. I don’t know, but for me, it’s got a bit of King and I about it? It just needs a circular petticoat. Speaking of musicals, which I sort of was, I totally downloaded the Pitch Perfect soundtrack this week. Since then I have been harassing Hubby with loud singing and questionable dance moves. Secretly I’m hoping the producers discover me and demand I participate in the sequel. I would supply my own wardrobe, I think, but demand hair and make-up. Diva like.

Until then you’re stuck with me. Hubby too. So let’s get on with this thing. Ready? GO.
