Curves Around the World: Week 13 - Rock Chic

Hello, Hello.... Ladies!!!
Its that time of the week for the Curves Around the World themed outfit posts. Yes, this weeks theme is Rock Chic!!! I am sure when you hear Rock Chic - what comes to mind immediately is Leather, Chains, spikes, dark eyed makeup, Dr Martens, studs etc!!! All the things I mentioned toughen up the outfit and gives it that edge that makes Rock Chic, ROCKS :)
I have a couple of Leather pieces, Doctors Martens and surely can darken my eye makeup, lol but that's kinda expected right? What triggered my thinking to be on that wave length is coming across Rihanna on some blog I visited where they focussed more on her converse hi top sneakers and when looking at her all I could see was a simple take on Rock Chic trend. With just those two pieces of clothing (dress and sneakers) and her red lip - she was effortlessly on point with this ROCK CHIC trend.
This picture kinda gave me an idea of items I should use to create this look. At first I wanted to recreate this entire look as I have similar items but opted to use a black dress instead of Rihanna's white one because my focal item was my recently bought Marimekko Converse Sneaks which make a better contrast with this black dress compared to a white one. A maxi dress was my order of the day: so, wearing only this maxi dress with hi tops would have not given me the effect I was looking for - adding up my gold studded denim vest made sense on many levels to take me Rock Chic land, if you know what I mean :)
I sprinkled some gold accessories (watch and bangles),  added red lip and my big Green Statement Earings to perfect this outfit. You all can agree with me that "A lady is incomplete without a handbag"! Right?? Yeah ... Right!!! So my Lehza Vintage brown sling bag came to play to complete this outfit. I know what you all thinking - that I have been carrying this bag quite a lot on my recent posts but what can I do when this bag just blends perfectly with my everyday outfits??? LOL ... I really am happy to have bought this bag its really perfect for my day to day activities at work and other wise. It looks small but it definitely does carry my notebook and my ipad with my wallet, car keys and makeup just perfectly. I hope my justification carries a lot of weight and you are finally forgiving me for this offence :)
So, dig in, indulge and definitely give feedback on your thoughts about my Rock Chic look. I look cute and  sassy - I really did enjoy taking these pictures, I know you will enjoy looking at them too and also agree that my version still qualifies my look to be called ROCK CHIC... ROCK ON LADIES :)
