The £2 Primark Sequin Dress

Yep, you read that right – I bought a dress for £2. Now do you see why my love for Primark is so strong?

I even wore it to a party for a member of the boyf’s family and it actually looked nice (note there is no photographic evidence as an iPhone still defeats Momma Keeling when it comes to camera duty).

The £2 Primark Sequin Dress 1

This very pretty, very simple cream and rose gold dress was just £2 and I really liked it.

I say ‘liked’ because unfortunately the sequins rubbed my poor underarms from the moment I put it on, leaving a sore and angry red rash, which took a couple of days and the application of Sudacrem before it shifted.

But hey, it was £2 people…

The River Island Wedding Guest Dress

River Island Wedding Guest 1 FINAL

Wedding season is upon us and at the beginning of this month, I had the great pleasure in attending one of my closest and oldest friend’s beautiful wedding.

My only problem came in the form of outfit choice. The only other wedding I’d ever attended day to night was my best friend’s wedding last September, but I was a bridesmaid, so I didn’t have to think about what to wear.

Enter River Island. I ordered this dress over Christmas as it was in the sale, (although technically, the boyf. did actually pick it, not me).

Turns out he has cracking female fashion sense and thanks to having my wisdom tooth out and being unable to eat for two weeks prior to the wedding, I was able to squeeze perfectly into this rather fitted and rather small for a size 10 dress.

Paired with some navy Primark heels and a F&F bag, I thought the overall outfit wasn’t too shabby to celebrate a perfect day in.

Sam, the gorgeous bride looked absolutely stunning, my girls all looked beautiful and even the boyf. scrubbed up well. It’s also safe to say that I’ll be calling on his fashion expertise in future…

Leather & Lace

There are two kinds of dress which I’ve always loved and, if in doubt, fall back on for nights out – leather and lace.

Maybe it’s the Stevie Nicks fan in me, but either way, these little beauties have caught my eye:

Leather and Lace

H&M Black Leather Dress // Miss Selfridge Black Leather Cut Out Dress // The Outnet Brandi Leather Dress // Lipsy Red Lace Dress // H&M Black Lace Dress //

Are you a leather or lace fan?
