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).

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…

Fashion: Statement necklace love

I love statement necklaces. Because I don’t particularly have any fashion sense, statement necklaces help me to make what I wear seem a bit more… fashion-y.

You all know that I’m near enough Primark’s number one fan, and it’s because of their jewellery more than their clothes and shoes (although I do adore them too). I’ve even started to branch out to other shops, but only when there’s a sale.

I do, however, still look to the mannequins for outfit and accessory styling (don’t judge) or more often than not, I wait until Carla comes to visit me and she basically throws dresses, bags, shoes and the accompanying bling at me.

Anyway, now I’ve divulged my secret shopping behaviour and lack of fashion sense, let’s just look at the pretty ‘gypsy gold’ that turns me into a human magpie shall we…

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).

River Island Wedding Guest 2 FINAL

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…

The Primark Biker Jumper Dress

The Primark Biker Jumper Dress

I mentioned in my lipstick post how Topshop’s Infrared had helped me to become obsessed with orange, and this Primark jumper dress is VERY ORANGE!

It’s my current, favourite item of clothing and the above outfit is one that I keep wearing – it’s perfect for Autumn/Winter as it’s just cosy enough and the biker sleeves make it a little edgy over girly.

Oh and the bling I’m wearing with it isn’t borrowed from Mr T, honest…

The Christmas wish list

Last year I got exactly what I’d been asking for for 18 years – a dog. My lovely (if somewhat rather large and mentally unstable) Labrador, Denver celebrated his first birthday on November 19.

But, although I was over the moon to finally get my puppy, I’m now stuck for ideas as to what I’d like for Christmas (ditto birthdays).

Other than a house, I couldn’t really name anything that I’m desperate to unwrap on December 25. But, after countless hours perusing the internet, I’ve come up with a slightly fantastical Christmas wish list:

Christmas party dresses – ’tis the season

It’s officially December and the big day is only 23 days away, but before we get to it, there’s a whole host of Christmas parties to attend.

And I don’t know about you, but the festive holiday is my excuse for cracking out everything sparkly, glittery and metallic.

Well, ’tis the season…

All that glitters is gold
                         

What will you be wearing this Christmas?
