Can't believe I have 49 followers! Tomorrow I'll sort out the stuff for my giveaway & take pictures etc ready for a post - how exciting!?
So, the party..
This is what I wore:
It's a Miss Selfridge dress, via eBay. Got it months & months ago but hadn't worn it yet, so decided it was time for its debut :) I really like it, it was so comfy & I love this colour..
(Excuse the state of it in this pic - I had to retrieve it from the floor where I'd dumped it to take a pic of it earlier.. I promise it was ironed when I went out!)
I wore it with black tights, a black slouchy cardi (to dress it down a bit - & to cover my fat arms!) & these shoes:
These are my trusty 'going-out' shoes! They're pretty much the only shoes I ever wear out. They're so comfy, & they go with everything, & they're the only heels I can walk in! So it's either these or flats :) They were from Peacocks, & I've had them for quite a few years now - so they're doing me well..
This is the bag I used:
I got it for Christmas a couple of years ago, & I didn't think I liked it much at all at first, but actually it's really grown on me & I'ved used it quite a lot! It's a good size & I like that it's a clutch, but with a handle.. if that makes sense..?
My hair looked like this:
My Mum did this for me, as I'm incapable of doing it myself! It was clipped at one side with a black flower (you might just be able to make it out..)
All in all, it was a good night! Well, until I got home anyway.. I got in at 1am, but didn't make it to bed until 4am. As I was indisposed in the bathroom, shall we say. Oops. Didn't really want to know that did you!? It was the first time I've had a drink since New Year's Eve - & I wasn't exactly sensible... But other than that, it was a fun night. Which I'm glad about, because I really wasn't sure that I wanted to go.
In all my drama of having to find an outfit for the party, I forgot about what I was actually wearing all day - I do however have a pic of the shoes:
They're sequin pumps from New Look a few years ago. I was wearing a black dress & black tights, with turquoise cardigan & jewellery - these are great, as they're just black pumps, so go with lots of things, but the sequins just add a bit of interest :)
Just realised that this has gotta be the first post I've ever done, with NO jewellery (ie. rings) photos! Crazy.
Ooh, just one more thing to show you:
How cute is that?! This is the purse I used last night. My sister gave it to me for Christmas, from my nephew :) It's meant to remind me of him. It's the first time I've used it, & it generated some interest I tell you! It's actually quite handy, as it doesn't take up much room at all.
I think that's it for today. I'm ridiculously tired & my brain's not functioning properly so I should probably leave it there!
PS. Any ideas on what to get a 48yr old man for his birthday? It's my Dad's on Monday & I'm going to have to go shopping tomorrow, as at the moment I haven't even got him a card! I've got ZERO idea...
