22 grand job, in the city it's alright

50s style dress: Primark
Velvet cropped jacket: Topshop
Tights: Primark
Patent square toed shoes: Next
Jewellery: Tiffany
Watch: Toywatch

This dress is a payday treat. Its the only thing I am going to buy this month. I really need to start saving. It has been sitting in my Primark for about a week in my size, must have been a return as it was the only one. It was fate that it became mine! I love the print on the top. Ugh my face looks so rough haha! I don't cope with hangovers very well! I could not be bothered with my hair so just scrapped it back. Effort is not my friend today!

I am extremely hungover. Still. I blame the 6 hour shift at work which was torture! Luckily I was hidden in the stockroom so was away from all the hustle and bustle! I got some amazing news at work today. I no longer work the weekends as from 20th march. Result, no more hangovers at work! Woop woop haha!

A quick outfit post of what I am wearing tonight. I'm going out for a chinese buffet with some people from work. I so need this, hopefully it will sort my hangover out and stop me from being such a wimp. I am planning on stuffing my face to the max. I have to get my moneys worth haha!

Hope you all have a lovely evening!
