Red hot curves in Vivacious Vixen Apparel

Curves are something that have been a part of my life since I was a teen. I developed relatively early in my teens and while my body has changed considerably since then, the fact I've been curvy has continued to be the case. Now days, I try and dress to flatter my curves as best as I can. As I've talked about in earlier posts, I gained weight last year and its only been in recent months I've been challenging myself to wear tighter styles, as they are something I've recently been shying away from. But, with some persistance and self love wiggle styles are making a comeback into my daily look, so when I was contacted by Vivacious Vixen Apparel to collaborate with them on one of their wiggle dress styles, I knew I couldn't say no!

Earrings ~ Gold Hoops from the Desperate Beatnik
Flowers ~ Red Roses from Daisy Jean Floral Designs

Brooch ~ SeƱorita Sherry Blossom Brooch from Miss Lady A Broad
Dress ~ Reversible Aurora Dress from Vivacious Vixen Clothing
Shoes ~ Marco Gianni Black Suede heels

Vivacious Vixen Apparel is a Canadian brand of clothing which started with one woman sewing clothings that she wanted to suit her. She begun selling her creations on ebay and now has her own store! When she suggested the Aurora dress, I was instantly sold on its versatility. A dress for both the office and the evening! Who can say no to that!

The Aurora dress is the ultimate dress for pinup ladies who like to work hard and play harder as its actually two dresses in one! On one side, you have a boatneck front for the office, allowing you to mesh dangerous curves while still being conservative for the office. Flip it around the other way for evening wear and you have a plunging neckline. Made of a comfortable Poly spandex blend, this dress has no zippers and is simply pulled over the head. The fabric meshes to your body beautifully and if you carry a bit of weight on your tummy like I do, the peplum covers it beautifully.

I must admit, the day I wore this dress I felt incredible! It was so comfortable to wear, I felt like an absolute babe and I got a lot of compliments and looks! While the length is a little shorter than I'm used to, I love the overall look of the dress which for me balances it out. I'm wearing the large and it fits beautifully. The fabric has a lot of stretch and even when stretched out fits beautifully.

This amazing dress retails for $64.99CAD which works out to be $68.95AUD as the Canadian exchange rate is incredibly more forgiving than the US or the UK dollar! She does ship worldwide too!

I do love the Senorita Sherry Blossom brooch from Miss Lady A Broad with this outfit. The red on red with her comb detailing. I have a blog post coming later this month about the incredible Miss Lady A Broad!
