We found love in a hopeless place

Black embelished peter pan collar chiffon shift dress: Next via Choice
Multi coloured glittery bag: Primark
Multi coloured glitter nail varnish: OPI Rainbow Collection
Sparkly ball ring: C/O Stella & Dot
Diamond drop earrings: Dorothy Perkins

This bag is perhaps the most Essex thing that I own, completely verging on chavvy but I absolutely love it! I admit I brought it because it matched my nails, I tried to hunt down the shoes that Hannah has brought but failed. I am falling out of love with it rapidly though as it completely ruined my dress. Destroyed the chiffon completely and the dress is now fit for the bin. Going to hunt around in Choice to see if I can purchase another one because it really is the perfect party season dress. Next time I will take a smooth bag and maybe not drink as much wine...

I was very kindly given the ring at work by my boss who was sent it from a PR. Isn't it lovely? It seemed very apt for my first Christmas party of the season. Once again I stole the shoes off my friend, although I woke up this morning panicking that I had lost them because I could not find them anywhere in my room. Luckily I had left them in her boyfriend's car. They were one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn on a night out so am now on a mission to hunt them down on ebay.

Did you all have a lovely weekend?

  18. A LBD is so classic (thanks for voting for me at Matalan by the way lovey x) and this one really suits you! I love the collar on it! ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

  19. I love the glittery bag & nails combo! I don't think that glittery necessarily equals chavvy! All that glitters is beautiful in my opinion :)
