OOTN: Flowers in her Hair

Sunday, 23 June 2013

Urgh can I just start by saying that I am rubbish at coming up with titles for outfit posts so this is the best I could do (I was singing it to the tune of McFlys "5 Colours in Her Hair").

This is the outfit I wore last week on a night out in Edinburgh with friends (I'm not going to go into details but lets just say the outcome was the worlds worst hangover).  The black lace dress is from River Island last year and I have worn it to death (in fact I think I've featured it in 3 outfit posts on here so far).  I just love the shape of it, it's the perfect length for me (as my legs are a hell of a lot skinnier than the rest of me so I suit a mid-thigh cut), has capped sleeves, nips in at the waist, and the sheer neckline means it is the perfect midpoint between boring/tarty.

The coral cardigan is a fairly new purchase from Dorothy Perkins (it's now on sale btw).  I really like the pretty lace and gem detail,  it makes a nice change from a plain old boring cardie.

I wore my studded Primark ankle boots which are my favourites- although these do have annoyingly slippy soles so aren't the best option for an evening where you are planning on having a few vinos and going somewhere with shiny floors (you may for example find yourself skidding into a table of men with pints....not that that happened to me).

Accessories wise I went for a tan and crochet belt (Primark), sparkly coral ring (also Primark), and a tan over the body bag (Dorothy Perkins - old).  I also wore a Primark floral headband in my hair after adding loose curls with my Enrapture Totem Styler.


I've listed the products below that I used on my face - going for my standard look of coral cheeks/lips and shimmery eyes.
  • Chanel Vitalumiere foundation
  • Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer
  • Chanel Natural Finish loose powder
  • Benefit Hervana blush
  • Topshop Crescent Moon highlighter
  • HD Brows kit (set with clear lipgloss)
  • Naked 2 YDK and Busted
  • Benefit They're Real mascara
  • Rimmel Exaggerate liquid eye liner
  • Topshop Whimsical lipstick
