why so serious?!

08/06/2013


what i'm wearing:
h&m trend satin maxi dress
h&m leather belt
OASAP clutch bag*
initial disc necklace
barry m hi-shine nail polish in greenberry
MK watch

oh dear it looks like i woke up with chronic bitch face when i took these photos, i can only apologise. you know when you see something online and your heart becomes set on it? this dress was it. but i had to wait a week to get paid and when i went back it was sold out, leaving me devastated. as h&m trend is only stocked in limited stores such as newcastle, metro centre and london i made the decision on saturday to hop on two buses and travel all the way to newcastle to see if the dress was there. thank goodness that when i got there it was, and for some reason £5 cheaper - woop! so with my discount i paid £26 for this beaut and i can't even tell you how many compliments i've gotten on it. people keep saying it looks like karen millen and a really expensive dress so maybe it's not to wear casually as i thought i could. i'm a huge fan of the colour green so i thought i'd just go all out with green on my nails too, i just couldn't help myself but luckily i think it compliments it actually. to be honest i don't think these photos give my dress justice, it's not frumpy at all and i had to get this in a size 6, i just have no idea where my waist has went in my full length shot.

after almost a week being sick, i'm finally on the mend and i'm going back to work tomorrow. i don't think i ever want to have another blood test ever again.
