What I'm Wearing: Gorgeous Couture


Evita Maxi Dress - Gorgeous Couture*

Seeing as this is a rather different style of OOTD I thought i'd spice things up a little and change locations...to the other side of my garden! Also its super bright and sunny today so the wall flower I usually take it in front of was so bright my eyes started burning and I started melting. I dashed to the shade and the lighting turned out a little better (although not amazing). I'm after a canon so once I have that I can mess around with lighting settings and all that jazz but for now, this will do! Plus as the dress is white it was even harder to photograph so I thought my nice red fences would do good enough.

This dress makes me feel a million dollars! (Or great British pound...) and it fits like a glove. It arrived ever so beautifully in a box with purple tissue paper and a lovely velvet hanger. I was too scared to pop it on as its a little out of my price range and I didn't want to break it (lol!) but I would definitely splurge on a beautiful dress like this if I was to go to a prom, ball or if I ever become famous and walk the red carpet... (a girl can dream!)

I thought I'd let the dress speak for itself and wear no jewelry or add any accessories. On my face I opted for dark evening eye make up with lots of black shadow and liner and finished of with rosy cheeks and a light pink lip. I loosely curled my hair and played around with it with my fingers to give it a bit more oomph! 

You can see the full range of Gorgeous Couture here. What do you think of the dress?

What I'm Wearing: Festival Fun


Coat - Next (similair here), Fringed Crop - Internacionale, Shorts - Levis, Bag - Asda, Headband - Primark, Converse

No I haven't been to a festival...no I'm not going to one either (sigh) I promise you creamfields I will be there next year & Avicii.. I will make it next time! I fancied having a little play around with outfits and seeing as though its the season of festivals I though what better than a festival inspired outfit! Of course If i was at an actual festival I would switch the Converse for a more practical pair of wellies! 

It was no doubt I had to start off with my vintage levi shorts and seeing as though its summer fringing is a must - it's a definite festival trend too so I thought perfect. This beautiful crop with fringing from Internacionale will do the job, as well as tying it in with my fringed bag to match. I then popped a headband on- I'm not one for floral crowns so this elastic headband did nicely (I pinched this of my sister for todays pics!) & Finally to top it off I popped Ruby Woo by Mac onto my lips. I think I've done a pretty good job! Just need a Festival now...

Hope you're all having a lovely start to the week!
