This week’s Aussie Curves challenge is to showcase my favourite piece. I’ve never been able to pull off the retro pinup look as the dresses generally look like a costume and don’t suit my plus size pear shape. That was until I discovered Cherry Velvet via Gwennie Bee.
I just adore this super cute A-line dress and remember debuting it on a Sunday morning and received a compliment from the first person I saw. The positive comments haven’t stopped. Actually, the first time I wore it the car service guy installed my blinker light bulb for free instead of charging $15. I honestly think it was due to my wearing this dress.
Its a scoop neck design with a knotted cutout in the back. I was happy to be able to wear my regular bra and didn’t have a problem with any bra straps pooping out which was nice. See all my Gywnnie Bee looks from my monthly subscription and get a 30 day free trial.
At 5″3′ this dress is the perfect length for my frame. I always treat myself to a twirl whenever I wear it no matter what. The fabric is a nice thick cotton so I feel quite ‘safe’ in this frock and its not clingy. Its honestly just super fun to wear and have pockets on a dress.
I even wore it to the season premiere of Go Curvy and everyone loved it! Here’s a pic of me doing a twirl on set showing it off host Sherry Lee Meredith, and my fellow Spicy Girl Talk panelists Joanne Rallo and Dellany Pease.
