Aussie Curves - Celebrate

I have two weddings coming up in my unusually social social-calendar.

So my Mum and I have been talking about what we will be wearing.  I just want to wear the same thing to both weddings, because I will be the only person that will be attending the two. The first is a cousin's wedding and the other a friend's.

So I did a pull in my cupboard for cocktail-ly dresses that would do okay in a carry on.


Dress 1: Target
Price: $70 approx
This first one fails totally.  Great colour and feel nice on because of the fabric but look at those creases! All this dress has done is hang out in my wardrobe and she already needs a press!  Plus because the fabric isn't stretchy you can really see my my tub rolls.



Dress 2: Basque
Price:  $12 on sale
Super comfy. It's black so it absorbs all my tub rolls. It has a peplum.  Only minus is that the cap sleeves make my arms wider.



Dress 3: Autrograph
Price: $19.99 on sale
Comfy even though it's quite a body hugger. It has sleeves that I think are nice.Does the wide neck makes me look top heavy? I need to sew on bra catchers and also I worry about the zipper quality.



Dress 4: Autograph
 Price: $19.99
 Feel a little bit like I'm on an episode of Star Trek.  Pretty comfy, nice sleeves. I will have to tack the front cross over so that it doesn't show my bra.


I had a few others, but took them out of the game before I even photographed them - too dressy or too casual.

What do you think?





Which dress should I wear?

  1. I like dress four. I think with nice blue earrings, clutch and heels it would be really nice for a wedding, maybe even a fascinator or something in your hair.
    I think the others are very plain but could also be nice with accessories.
    Personally i think the black dress is too black for a wedding

    1. Thank you! I was a bit worried that it was a little too body con for a wedding, but so far it's in the lead.

    1. Ugh, me too. Plus I travel really light and get everything into carry on so it really has to be crush proof.

  4. I love dress three. Would colour it up a bit with a statement necklace and perhaps some patent heels in a colour like cobalt blue or red? That way you look like you are going to a party. I dont think the neck is a problem at all
