I bought this dress a few weeks ago on a little shopping trip to Glasgow. It's a Primark number, as all my stuff seems to be, and as soon as I saw it I just had to have it! I'm so sorry, but I forgot to take note of the price. I'm guessing it's between £11-£15 though as that's their usual kind of price for dresses.
It's quite Chanel-esque, and I love the whole sixties monochrome style. It's also threaded with glittery threads, which just makes me 'Squeeee!' in delight. The lighting is sooo awful in my house that all the pics have a different background as I was running around the house trying to get the best lighting, so apologies. Also think a mini tripod might be going on my Christmas list!!
What do you think? It looked better on the mannequin to be honest; I think I'd pull it off better if I was skinnier, but TOO BAD. I love it for the festive season, defo see me wearing it pottering round the Christmas markets with my mulled wine..! Mmm. I'd probably team this with boots, but for the sake of these photos I thought a wee colour pop heel would be nice. These were £12 from Priceless Shoes.
I stuck with the sixties theme with bubblegum pink lipstick (Sleek Pout Paint in Rosette, £4.99) and a high ponytail.
WARNING: Scary Pictures Ahead.
Now, I thought I'd be brave and do a FOTD. You think 'I'm a Celebrity' contestants have got it hard? Look at all the challenges I'm facing today!! I've not done a FOTD before for the simple reason that I have a rubbish face. It photographs not too bad from a distance, but close up it's just NOSE. But I had my shiny new Urban Decay Naked Palette (read my post about it here) and I wanted to show you why I love it. So here goes, be kind... :(
Oh, and I'm growing my eyebrows out for HD brows, so you can enjoy that too. =p
Ugh. Don't say I didn't warn you!! Sorry for the gormless expressions.

I'm also super duper excited because my Claireabella bag is on its way to me! Don't worry if you don't know what that is (although you SHOULD because they are BEAUTIFUL) because I'll be doing a very excitable post on it when it arrives!!
I'm also super duper excited because I ordered my very first set of proper make up brushes! I always just use rubbishy stuff or my fingers, but since I got my Naked palette and the beautiful brush with that, I've been coveting a full set. I decided on Sigma brushes, because I've heard amazing things and they were offering free worldwide shipping. So can't wait for them to arrive too!!
Hope you enjoyed my OOTD and FOTD and I didn't scare you too much with my close ups. What do you think of them?
Let me know!
