Dress: Cutie for Simply Be
Shoes: Primark (old season)
Bag: Primark

Hi all! This was an outfit that I forgot to post – oops! Better late than never, eh?

I was so excited when this dress came out – I’d seen similar dresses in various charity shops over the years, but they were always too small for me. So even though this is new,  I snapped it straight up as soon as I had the money. It’s gorgeous, fits like a dream and makes me feel like I’m close to how I want to look in my head – if that makes sense? I don’t feel I’m compromising the style I want at all with this outfit. It’s awesome.

I wore this to head out to the Gogo Philip store launch off Brick Lane, which was fab. That said, despite looking how I want to look, the other bloggers there looked SO COOL I was a teensy bit intimidated – me in my nice dress and my nice shoes and whatnot. I’m always acutely aware that I’m the uncoolest person in any room, haha. Ah well.

I’ve always loved Gogo’s tacky outrageous jewels. They’re such decent prices, as well, it was difficult not to raid the whole shop. Here’s what was happening there:

I bought myself a pair of gorgeous ruby drop earings, which I can’t wait to wear out to a fancy ‘do!

Afterwards Bethany and I headed down to my favourite curry house on Hanbury Street. We got a bit of a treat as we left – an artist was busy painting a mural on the wall opposite:

It turned out that artist was Alexis Diaz, and you can see the finished article here – it’s incredible. What an honour!

Hi all! I hope you’ve all been well? These photos were taken a while ago but I’ve not had time to update until now! The past week has been slightly hectic (by my standards, anyway), so I’ve celebrated today by doing absolutely nothing.  It’s great!

I know everyone has been going absolutely mad for dungarees lately – something I didn’t think I’d ever find myself wearing again, because as you probably know I don’t EVER wear jeans (or indeed anything denim) any more. So when I saw mentions of a dungaree dress my thought process was pretty much “oh I’ll go onto ASOS and have a look and s- OH MY GOD THAT IS SO CUTE I HAVE TO BUY IT CLICK CHECKOUT MINE YAY”

I also checked out with this gorgeous blue broderie anglaise crop top, as I thought they’d go excellently together. I wasn’t wrong: they arrived, I tried them on, ripped out the tags and went straight to work.

I love it when a plan comes together, don’t you?

Of course, I have to chat about my lovely new glasses! I was very fortunate to get whisked off to my local Specsavers for a pair of specs to review, and I plumped for these gorgeous Red or Dead ones – though I came very close to purchasing these bad boys, and might well do later on. I loved my last pair dearly but they got quite badly scratched, and I love how much softer theese new ones are. So hooray, thank you, Specsavers!

Hello lovelies, yes this is indeed my 2nd outfit post of the week. Hurrah! After finishing the Simply Be blogger takeover, each of us were given credit to spend at the shop. Naturally I bought both other dresses as well as another copy of my own (just because I could!). I wore Em‘s to an important work meeting, and Laura’s I wore for a work event – one in which I was able to go full nerd.

blinkbox are one of the companies I work for, and they celebrated getting Game of Thrones season 3 earlier than anyone by hosting a screening of the first episode and having Maisie Williams (Arya Stark aka BAMF) and Joe Dempsie (Gendry Waters) over for a Q&A session. I managed to wangle my way in and it was SO COOL. As well as being able to watch episode one again, although I did miss my pal Julia. My nerd levels were peaking all night!


Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get a picture with them – I actually left the same time as Maisie and her team, but they seemed like they were in a rush so I didn’t ask for one. Which is a shame as I wanted to ask her what Claire‘s cupcakes taste like! Haha.
