80's OOTN!

I thought I'd share my outfit from the other night! 
I went to a friends hen party, she's getting married in a month, and she chose the theme of 80's.

I did stress about getting an outfit together, but I'm pleased with what I ended up with! 

I went with a ra-ra skirt and leggings, then a dark grey top with a neon green vest underneath.
Fingerless lace gloves and neon bangles.
I didn't have to search around for these items, there is a combo of New Look and H&M there.

Shoes were bright pink courts from
I'll probably wear these again, they were surprisingly comfy!

Yes, I crimped my hair!
However it looked so awful down, I had to tie it back!
It just looked like a fried mess! Crimping can stay in the 80's!
I believe the style is coming back though, it was featured in the new Sex and the City film and a few celebs have sported the look recently, not sure I'll be following.

I bought the crimper from Topshop.

Makeup was the usual but with lots of blusher not that you can tell, but there was more than enough on those cheeks! Then I used lots of Lady GaGa lipstick, and China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy neon nail polish.

Here are a few of us!

There was lots of neon and a few dodgy wigs! We even went to an 80's nightclub!

New Clothes and Shoes!

So I cannot seem to buy enough clothes at the moment!
I guess as I've lost weight I'm enjoying my clothing more!

Top from Monsoon - I love this it has little sequins on it and is silk
♥ Shoes from Accessorize

 Top from H&M from the Fashion Against AIDS collection
 Scarf from Miss Selfridge
Both items are not my normal style but I've seen many people wear a skull scarf with 'girly' things!

 Shoes from Clarks - I'll save these for the winter!

 Shoes also from Clarkes! 
I'm literally in LOVE with these! I decided to go with these for the wedding I mentioned in a previous post, so glad I got them anyway I'll wear them with other things! Oh and both pairs of shoes are currently in Clarkes sale! Bonus!

Dress Dilemma!

I need some style advice guys! I know you are a fashionable bunch so I hope you don't mind!

I'm going to the wedding reception of one of my best friends in July and I have left it waaay to late to find a dress even more so shoes!

This is the dress I have bought,

Surprise surprise, its from Monsoon Fusion!

It has little bird cages and birds on it,


I'm going to wear lots of bangles with it and maybe a long necklace. Oooooh maybe that green cocktail ring  mentioned in my Most wanted list!!

Now I cannot decide on shoes or even find a pair I like!

I wanted to wear some colourful shoes, maybe green as the dress is black and as its summer I wanted to brighten it up.

Can I find a pair of green shoes..... nope!!

So I thought pink

These are from Clarkes! I really rate Clarkes for shoes I have found some amazing ones in there and they are always comfy!

However, I really wanted sandals or peep toes, and I'm not huge fan of suede, I prefer patent!

What do you think? Do they go? Have you any other suggestions? What shoes would you wear?

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Hair Envy!

I hate my hair at the moment.

I am having it cut on Wednesday and have been looking around at styles to go for.

I loved my hair when it was shorter but my hairdresser has decided that we are going to grow it, which is fine but the bottom layer, the longest one is so much longer that the next layer, its all straggly and thin and wispy as my hair is so fine.

So its getting the chop!

I love my hair curly, and curl it most days as I hate it so much at the moment, curly makes it bearable!

I love watching Samantha Who? Particularly because I love the characters style.... and her hair!

To me its short yet long! Its away from her neck but long enough to style it and wear it back.

I love Christina Applegate she's so cute and I love her style, I think its very similar to her character in the show. I know she has grown her hair out a bit now and I'm sure I will too but I want it to look good in the mean time!

What do you think?!

I'll be taking these pictures to the hairdressers, so Simon get ready to chop!!


PS Please make another series of Samantha Who? its funny as well as stylish!

Maybe I'll look this hot on Wednesday!

Most Wanted!

Hey Guys! Sorry I have been a little absent but I thought I'd ease myself back into blogging with a wishlist! One of my favourite things to do!

Dress from Monsoon Fusion

Now we all know I have an unhealthy obsession with Monsoon and Accessorize, and if I could I would entirely dress myself in their clothing! I adore this dress from their Fusion range which is the slightly cooler younger diffusion line.
You can't really see from the pic but it has little elephants on it and a paisley design. Sooo cute with gold flip flops!

Maxi Dress

I reeeealllly want a maxi dress! The one above is from Gap and is jersey, I just don't know what style to go for. I'm worried it would look like a sack, but I know that jersey flatters my figure and hugs me in all the right places! Summer will be over before I get one!!

Essie Pretty Edgy

I am so in love with this colour, its from their Summer 2010 collection and I have ordered it, its should be on its way to me as we speak! I have OPI Jade is the New Black on my toes right now and I adore it!

Cocktail Rings from Anusha

I want all three! I love them!
They are £29 though so can't really justify all three! I haven't bought one yet as I simply can't decide which is my fave! I think its the cream one....... no the green one or maybe the blue one! See!!

iPhone 4

My iPhone is an extension of my arm, I would NEVER have another phone. I am obsessed with it, I'm on it ALL the time. Its quite unnatural!
When Apple announced the iPhone 4 this week I knew it had to be mine! I skipped the last one and I am eligible for an upgrade so their timing was perfect! I'm just waiting to find out the price, then I'll be in that queue on the 26th to get my mitts on it!

Are you lusting after anything this week?!
