Oranges and Solar Systems

Sunday 27 July 2014

It was recently my Grandparent's 50th Wedding Anniversary and they had a small get together on the actual day, and a big party the day after. Totally a great excuse for cute new dresses! I didn't manage to get any photos of my outfit for the big party, it was ridiculously warm and I was late getting ready thanks to my hair taking me longer than I anticpated, but I did the day before!

First off, the most awkward full outfit photo ever. Thank you Stu for taking it, I have no idea how I managed to look so awkward, sorry! Orange is not a colour I would ever usually wear, but I am so glad I decided to give it a go! Especially with my new brown hair I think it works well for me.

ASOS Curve Skater Dress with Panel Detail reduced to £16

I actually bought this dress the day before it went on sale at £32 and was gutted when it was reduced in the sale. So I will totally admit I bought it again and sent the expensive one back! The colour is called 'tomato red' on the website but it is totally bright orange and lush. It's also available in black but I wanted to give the bright colour a go for summer.

Sugar & Vice Solar System Necklace £28
Bloody Mary Metal Triple Bones Ring from £45
Bloody Mary Metal mini crescent moon ring - no long available
Nail Varnish by Barry M Limited Edition colour Promenade (can't find it on their website)

I love this necklace just ridiculous amounts. Like seriously, how amazing?! It has glitter, mirrored acrylic, the detail is wonderful and I always get so many compliments on it. I thought the blues would work well with the orange and I was right! I'm also wearing my Bloody Mary Metal rings that I literally wear constantly. I've not taken any of them off since I got them. Love them so much. I don't wear any Nail Varnish but Barry M. It is just by far the most chip proof, and animal friendly too! I painted my nails on Friday and have been doing all sorts and they still look perfect.

I am not great at makeup. Like, at all. But I try to hide that by wearing bright fun colours! My eye makeup is always by Sugarpill. Nothing else that is animal friendly and mostly vegan lasts anything like them, or has the amazing colours they have. I used Velocity on my lower lids and Flamepoint on my upper. They last the whole day, even in the crazy heat we've been having. I'm also wearing the new Barry M Cor Balmy! £3.49 in cb5 and Barry M Lash Vegas Mascara £6.49. The lip balm is so lush! It really moisturises and adds a good layer of colour, I love it, especially for summer as I think a lippy can feel a bit heavy in summer.

My shoes are brand new, I've been eyeing them up for a while and they finally went on sale so I had to get them. They are Evans Megan Black Strappy Mule Wedge and my leggings are New Look Inspire Tie Dye Printed Leggings from ASOS. They are soooo soft. Both of these are on sale at the moment!

I am so pleased I chose to dye my hair darker. It looks thicker and healthier, and I think it really shows my eyes off well. I'm hoping my root regrowth will barely be noticeable now.

Much love,
