Aussie Curves - night out

The last few weeks of school mean lots of night outs; speech night, senior formal, spectacular, Christmas carols.  Most of my photos have turned out too dark :(

I'm on the left.  My dress, not that you can see it, is from Asos.

Last night was our staff Christmas party.

It was meant to be a costume party but only my husband and I really wore costumes, although there were a few Christmassy outfits.

We don't mind being the only ones dressed up though because our costumes rocked...

Yeah check that out!

I got the dress and isis wings from eBay.  My sandals are from The Iconic.

Week 47

Long time no filofax post.  

That's not to say that I haven't been using my planner or decorating - well maybe not every week. I've just been busy busy busy!

I've got some secrets that I'm keeping - lets just say Minnie is part of one of them.

Aussie Curves - Skirt


Last year on Aussie Curves someone shared a link to Punyus and I fell in love with the eggcellent egg skirt. Sorry - I'll make it my first and last pun.  Behold the sunny side up eggs:

No skirt has ever yelled louder to me then this one, "You must have me!"  But I figured it was going to be too hard to buy it.  I would make it myself, all be it with any large egg print I could find.

 I found this print on eBay, and put it in my watch list, and then forgot about it.

Anyway, recently I finally bought some fabric and got my sew on.  

I used quilting fabric but I interlined it with cotton silk so it would make the fabric wear nicer.  It also feels nicer. 

I sewed in pockets.

My outfit got a mixed review at work - some people just don't get the idea of wearing food prints obviously.  I have some watermelon fabric next up and am looking for pizza, maybe doughnuts.  To be honest, Katy Perry's video clip for "This is how we do" is influencing my wardrobe somewhat.  I'm including it below, just in case you have never seen it.
