Aussie Curves Challenge: ORANGE!

So Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge hasn't really been working out for me for a while - however, with some encouragement from my girl Olivia I decided to join up with the Aussie Curves group (which is open to Kiwis as well) and change up my Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge to a weekly Aussie Curves Challenge.

My first challenge with this new group is orange, which meant it was time to crack out this wee vintage number I've had for literally YEARS.
It looks like my dress is actually glowing - its not actually quite this orange - I kind of made it go super ORANGE using pic monkey. I really don't like this photo - but I didn't have Rich around to help me, so I used my tripod and I'm totally rubbish at using my tripod.
 This is how orange my dress actually is - its not really glowing!
I wore my dinosaur brooch - he's a pretty recent purchase, I like him a lot, dinosaurs rule!
Last week felt like summer and this week had been pretty wet, cold and rainy so its back to wearing boots.

OUTFIT DEETS:
Boots - Doc Martins, Bought in Seoul
Tights & Cardi - Glassons
Necklace - Op Shopped
Dress - Vintage

Oh your frock is gorgeous - you can't lose with spots can you? I adore your dinosaur brooch so much, just gorgeous:)). Isn't it great seeing all the challengers wearing their orange outfits in the pics at the end? xoxo

I have grown to really love orange. I have never worn it until the last year. I love that frock....orange plus polkadots is one wonderful combo. Your glasses are glowing in that first pic as well! I can only dream of tights & boots after the hot week we've had. Xx

I LOVE orange! Never wore it until a year or so ago, now it's a favourite.
Your polka dot frock is a beauty, especially with an added dinosaur! Keep practising with the tripod, you have to delete a LOT of not so good shots before you get to grips with it, believe me! I still take a load of photos that are hysterically bad! xxxx
