OOTD: Houndstooth Print!

So I'm already behind on my outfit posts... And it's only been a week!

I bought this funky as dress from my favourite store - Kmart. Kmart is like chocolate to me... I crave it late at night when nothing is open, but KMART IS! I get one of those small baskets and walk around the entire store grabbing a whole lotta stuff that are all so cheap and that I entirely do not need. Ahhhhhhh Kmart!

So I grabbed this dress for an awesome $8 and teamed it with an old neon pink belt to brighten it up.
Outfit deets are...
Dress - Kmart $8
Belt - Unknown
Jacket - Tokito $42.50
Leggings - Big W $8
Shoes - Wayne Cooper $81

OOTD: Green Envy!

It's raining and dull here in Perth today and I've unfortunately been in and out of meetings all day. Cannot wait for the weekend!

Due to the weather, I decided to wear something a bit more bright, but still corporate. The skirt was such a steal from Country Road - One of the staff had accidentally marked the skirt at $49.95, when it should have been only discounted to $69.95 from $99.95! It was one of those perfect shopping experiences!

Today I'm wearing...
Jacket: Dotti Peplum Jacket $29.95
Top: Big W $8
Skirt: Country Road $49.95 (Bought it half price, woohooo!)
Leggings: Big W $8
Boots: Zomp $70

I bought this retro print dress around a year ago at Portmans and couldn't fit it, but... HOORAY, I can fit it now! Found it in the back of the wardrobe and thought i'd try my luck. I reckon it has a "Mad Men" feel...

So for the outfit details...
Dress: Portmans $14.95
Tights: Big W $8
Boots: Zomp Melbourne $70

Numero Uno!

I've been a devout plus size blog reader for years! I've committed and finally started my own... "Throwing a curve ball"

An explanation of the title: I was in the car this morning with my partner, Daniel, and we were brainstorming names for my blog. Dan's first suggestion was curve ball... and I laughed in his face as I thought he was being childish about the word "balls". But then I thought about all the amazing plus size bloggers that I follow everyday - They are beautiful curvy girls, who dress to the nines - a complete curve ball, not what society expects!

Now for an explanation of my blog and my life!

I'm Nadia, 22 yo, from Perth, Western Australia. I’m a full-time Health & Safety Advisor, for a not-for-profit organisation and also study full-time finishing my business degree.  I live with my partner, Daniel, in our very cute house (I love DIY home design) and we love to travel. We are off to Europe for a month in just a few weeks!

I've been curvy all my life, and in the last 9 months, I've lost 35 kilos and dropped 3 dress sizes. I'm now a size 16 and nearing the double digits, Wohoo! I’ve still got 20 kilos to go, but I’m of the belief that slow and steady wins the race. Not in a rush to say goodbye to the last 20 kilos as I want to enjoy life, the way my body is changing every day and be body confident!

Onto my favourite part, FATSHION!

I LOVE fashion.

I love clothes so much that when I moved into our home, I had 38 boxes/bags of clothes and I have an entire room as my dressing room.

I’m a thrifty shopper though; I’ll only ever buy things on sale. If it’s full price, I’ll make friends with the shop keeper, try and get the 411 on the sale times, and wait until I can at least get it 30% off. I’m a firm believer that you can dress fashionably at affordable prices!

So to summarise, this blog is a forum for me to debrief on fashion, my life and other interests!

Can’t wait to throw you a curve ball!
