I’m living in a lost generation

Sheer black vest - Topshop (similar)
Green floral double spilt midi skirt - Topshop
Ankle strap stilettos - Primark (similar)
Pink lipstick - Topshop All About Me 

It's this skirt again. Sorry about that but this is a personal style blog and this is exactly what I'm wearing out for dinner tonight. Once I find something I like it tends to be repeated over and over again.  Anyone else guilty of this?! These shoes were an impulse buy from Primark quite a few months ago - I blame my mother for her encouragement. What a good impulse buy they turned out to be! They get full marks for being comfortable even with the thin heel and they feel secure on my feet. A little bondage-style ankle strap gets a thumbs up from me. My uncle put a French plait in my hair when I had my fringe cut this afternoon - i'm absolutely loving the lion mane look!

Like I said I'm off out for dinner tonight to a local Mexican restaurant for a friends birthday. It'll be nice to have a relatively quite Saturday night with a good meal rounded off by a trip to the pub. After Warsaw I'm looking to steer well clear of the dreaded booze - too much vodka was consumed on that trip! It'll be diet cokes all round for me tonight.
