Stole My Hearts

Hi! I'm back with another outfit post - this time its for an evening out that I went to, for the local Youth Awards (I even ended up getting a couple of awards myself!).  As always, I hadn't planned what I was going to wear, so freaked out at last minute and ended up borrowing a dress from my sister!  Everything worked out though, because the dress looked gorgeous and matched my other stuff perfectly - phew!

(I've included two photos here - I know that I'm not looking at the camera in the second one, but I think that the picture is slightly clearer!)

My dress is from New Look - and my sister! - and is a really pretty skater style which looks good on most figures - I actually really like this dress because the material is nice and thick and the dress is tailored really nicely to flatter your figure, there's an almost belt-like panel of material around the waist which really pulls in the whole dress.  I also like the neckline, as I'm definitely not a fan of low-cut dresses, they just don't look right on me!  This dress is also perfect for dancing, its not too long to move about in, and not too short either (but I am only about 5 ft 3", so this might not be accurate for everyone, haha!).

From a distance the dress might look like its covered in polka-dots - but they're really tiny hearts!  How cute is that?! And if that wasn't adorable enough, there's actually heart-shaped cut-out on the back, at around shoulder-blade height (cut-outs at this height will usually look good on everybody, whereas cut-outs lower down on the back will just accentuate any love-handles on curvier girls!).  Unfortunately, I forgot to photograph the back of the dress because I'm a total ditz, and now its in the wash - sorry!

I wore my pinkish-nude Miss-Selfridge ribbon-tie heels - which you can see in my 5 top shoes post! - and they complemented the dress perfectly; nude, black and white will always work!

I'm not into wearing loads of accessories, so I kept it minimal with two pale-pink bracelets (as seen in my Hot Summer Jewellery post) which matched my shoes.

On my nails is Barry M's nail paint in Shocking Pink, which is my favourite pink nail polish ever!  I also teamed it with a new nail polish form Avon: Opal Top Coat, which adds fragments of holographic glitter over your regular nail colour. (pink and sparkly - basically me, in nail polish!).

I did a brown and gold smokey eye for my makeup, which shows up a lot less on camera, but was actually quite dramatic!  Since my eyes were rather heavy, I just chose to add a slick of clear lipbalm onto my lips, as I would also be eating and chatting later!

  2. Hey Bexx! I loved your outfit and nails. I love this color combo.

    I do have a request. Please do not mind me saying this, the font you are using for your post is a little hard to read. If you could just darken it a notch it would be great.


    1. Hi! Thanks for telling me about the font - I've darkened it a little now! glad you liked the post :) xx
