On Thursday night I went to the Christmas party for Social Diary, an industry website for media and events. Every year it has an awesome dress-up theme and this year it was Wedding Of The Year. You could come as anything related to weddings or marriage. I had sent my RSVP to attend long before I became sick but when it came to the day I wasn’t feeling too well. I was determined to still go because being a full-time blogger means I work alone in my home …. there is no other Christmas party for me!

Coming up with a costume last minute was not ideal. The only thing wedding related I had was my two bridesmaid dresses from the weddings I attended earlier this year. I decided I would go as a trashy bridesmaid (or in Australian terms, a bogan bridesmaid). I am not a makeup artist by any means so I had no idea how I was going to make myself trashy, but after looking up some Google images I felt I had an idea of what to do.

I decided on my pink one-shoulder maxi bridesmaid dress with knee-high black boots and chunky heart shaped plastic rings. I took a packet of gum with me to chew loudly and I borrowed a packet of cigarettes from a friend and put them in my shoulder strap. Now I am going to share how I completed my trashy bridesmaid look with makeup, hair and nails.

Anyone who has known me longer than 4 years would know I love sexy costumes. And no, not for the purpose they were initially designed for, but for just playing dress-ups and looking cute.

I am a notorious dresser-upper and every Halloween I try to rope in as many people as I can to dress up with me. It has rarely worked but nevertheless I have always enjoyed myself wearing some ridiculously adorable costume. Now, before you utter SLUT under your breathe, let me explain why I am talking about this today.

My thoughts are, there is a costume for almost every body shape. I have had my body shape issues over the years and I wanted to show you the costumes I wore at those times. My goal is to show you that it didn’t matter what shape I was, I had fun and I think you will too. After sharing with you my photos I am going to show you some of my favourite costume picks for 2011!
