mac lipstick in ruby woo
zara sandal heels

this couldn't be less of a "me" dress if i tried, but i'm so glad i've chosen something out of my comfort zone because i absolutely love it. is it just me that really doesn't like it when they position there tripod in the wrong place and end up taking a photo further away than normal? just me? okay then.. anyway i wish i'd gotten this dress in a size smaller as it would have been the most perfect fit whereas at the moment it's a little baggy on the arms and hips/thighs region. that being said i think it's such a gorgeous going out dress, as you basically don't need to add anything else to the outfit otherwise it would be too much. just some simple jewellery is all you need and a leather jacket if it's a little nippy.

tonight i'm at the dr. marten event in newcastle as it only opened yesterday! i'm super excited to go with my friend rachael (from beautypea) and hopefully get some good snaps as i've been asked to style some boots for them. i'll also be posting on my instagram so if you're interested you can check it out there. :)
