Spent the Weekend Listening to Crunk



Dress: Newlook
Cardigan: Newlook
Tights: Primark
Necklace: I Need More Jewellery

I'm glad velvet has "come back" as I bought two of these dresses last year from New Look and I feared they'd be cast aside never to be worn again. I like how they're bodycon but not overly tight and they don't show off all the jiggly bits like some dresses do. Annnd they seem to cling to the right places rather than straight to the belly - I hope!
Ugh I can't believe it's Sunday evening already, although for once I can actually say I've had real plans this weekend (I don't think dates with Pauly D and The Only Way is Essex counts) as me and Tom made the hideously long journey to Grimsby yesterday for my Nannas' 70th. It was nice seeing my close family again but there was many an awkward moment where some long lost relative twice removed introduced themselves and I was unsure what to do, I don't like kissing unknowns, i'm not a male so don't like shaking hands, and it's just creepy hugging older men you don't know! I am socially retarded....
I've also been sehr busy today blitzing the flat for an inspection tomorrow, I get such a feeling of dread when a letter comes in the post from the estate agent and this week it was a double Linkwhammy 1 They put our rent up and 2 We have an inspection despite having one two months ago. So after a day of extreme cleaning I'm going to spend tonight snuggled up with a brew and X Factor, and speaking of which I'm not sure if I'm enjoying it as much as last year as there's just not that many people I actually like - Bring back Cher Lloyd, One Direction & Matt Cardle please!

So that's me done. Hope everyone else has had a pleasant one. I also listed some wears on ebay today so if you fancy a peek click here!

  3. This dress is uhhhh-mazing! I love the velvet, and the colour is lovely too! I get what you mean about dresses sticking.. they either need to be proper tight or when they are that inbetween and stick to wrong places, it can look funny!
    However I think you look gorgeous x

  10. I feel as if I'm really going against the grain, but I'm loving this year's X Factor! Nearly all of the contestants seem equally talented, and it's the first time for years that I've opted for X Factor over Strictly!

    And yes, Bicester is defo worth a visit...I'm going back next week!

  11. I agree about velvet. I haven't indulged this year yet but it always reminds me of Christmas time. And about X Factor - everyone is so forgettable.

  15. I really LOVE velvet. absolute favourite 'it's almost christmas' material! and I also love this colour.
    And RE your comment on my blog... I would most definitely recommend a MSF, the one I have that's almost run out was a limited edition one, but it has lasted forever, so i reckon its worth the money! they add the perfect subtle glow!

  17. Agreed with everyone else, the dress is very X-massy which is weird because I normally associate it with Halloween and like, Wednesday Addams witch outfits or something. I don't think you have to worry about stomach pudge, your figure is beautiful :3
