My Mum turned 50 during January, which meant 2 fancy parties, so I made sure to get some snaps of both outfits!
Outfit number 1, we went out for dinner at a fancy restaurant and my Mum wanted us to get glammed up. I was totally up for that.

Boots - Doc Martens with Schwings
Leggings - New Look
I love this dress. The silver detail makes you look like you have a tiny waist! If you look at the photo properly, what appears to be my waist isn't, because my hand is actually on my waist. The fringing also creates amazing movement and I can never resist twisting about to make the fringing swing everywhere.
Case and point!
Outfit two, a gathering at my Mum's house for drinks and a buffet on her actual birthday. Cue needing a different dress and look.

Purple patent creepers - TUK (no longer available)
This dress is one of my favourite go-to outfits. I always feel cute in it. It has faux leather sections framing the bust and waist that fit the skater style really well. I wanted a cover up because right now I'm having a bad eczema break out on my arms and it makes me pretty self conscious. A cute dress never feels quite me in winter without stompy boots or something similar, and I'd forgotten I owned these patent creepers till they appeared on my timehop app recently.
Look how cute they are! And non-leather too.
Eye make up - Sugarpill and Geek Chic Cosmetics
Lipstick - Barry M
And a close up of my face. Makeup is not my strong point, but that necklace deserves a better look! While it is no longer available, Sugar & Vice have a lot of beautiful crystal and gemstone inspired jewellery that is available.
I need to try and blog more outfits that actually have clothes in them that are still for sale... sorry about that!
