What I Wore // Vamp




Dress - BooHoo*
Boots - ASOS
Necklace - Azora Rocks
Hair Slide - Crown & Glory

I adore the sophistication a wrap style brings. Since I bought this Zara top I've coveted just about every draped beauty I've seen, so I was thrilled when I got my mitts on this bargain of a dress, in my favourite colour too! It is a little revealing for someone with a less ample chest like myself, and although I have no problem showing a little cleavage, I will however safety pin this together next time I wear it to avoid further flashing-of-the-bra moments in a full restaurant. Funny!

I would usually go for the safety net of a black belt and boots with this dress but decided to try something a tiny bit different and slipped my new glittery boots on with this lovely necklace instead, topped with the last minute addition of this gorgeous hair slide. I wanted these boots for ages, and finally gave in last week. Lo and behold, a couple of days after I bought them, Asos announce up to 50% off of all of their shoes. Cue major frustration - Does anyone else feel like they've just wasted money when this happens?

My hair is fading quickly. It seems that the blonde was too strong and is refusing to say goodbye. Next time (which is looking to be a lot sooner than I'd hoped), I'll go even darker and hope it sticks around. Oh well, I'm off to Tesco to fight the Christmas crowds now, and earn myself a Costa!

Hope you're all well!

  5. I love this dress on you and the boots are very cute (and YES I get soooo frustrated when something gets discounted just after I have bought it :-( makes me proper sad faced lol)

    Don't ya just love BooHoo lately? They seem to get better and better with each season!

    Hope Tesco was ok and not too scary (i.e. no people using their trollies as battering rams haha) and you got yourself a yummy Costa.

    1. Isn't it annoying?! I'm glad its not just me, its hard not to be mad but I suppose they've got to start a promotion somewhere and so someone has to lose out, haha!

      Yes, boohoo are amazing at the moment! I remember first discovering them YEARS ago when they weren't so great but they've really come far since then! Looking forward to the future with them, it can only get better!!

      Tesco was surprisingly EMPTY! Probably people avoiding the probable rush. I'm not moaning :D xx
