Festive Outfit Post

I don't do outfit posts very often because I feel a bit silly taking photos but I got all dressed up to go out last night for 'Black Friday' so it was a good chance to take a photo. I suppose it's not really festive but it is red!



The dress is from ASOS curve and I got the brooch in the ASOS sale in the summer for £1.50!
The  scarf was a steal at 50p from the Ty Hafan charity shop in Caerphilly and I tried wearing it in my hair but it looked a bit Cher Lloyd and it's a bit small to wear around my neck so I tied it around the strap on my bag and it looked great.
I really need a haircut but I can't get anywhere to get it done so I curled my hair with my ghd's. I'm wearing Lancome artliner liquid liner, Ruby and Millie gold eyeshadow and YSL Perfect Touch Radiant Brush Foundation.

  1. I love your hair! The side ponytail and tonged curls suit the dress perfectly :)
    I know what you mean about taking photos of yourself...I've just done two posts with me in them, and it's the first time I've ever done that as I always feel silly too! But I'm trying to be brave...and go for it. Ha x

  2. You looked lovely, I do that thing with the scarf around my bag strap too, it looks cool & means you have a scarf available if you fancy throwing it on or round your head :) I hardly do outfit posts because I'm lazy haha.

  4. Thanks guys, I can't go around looking in all my usual haunts for bargains because of the snow so I thought outfit posts and craft posts would be a good idea. The snow needs to go away now!

  17. That is a gorge colour, you look stunning sweets! How was the 'do? Hmmm Christmas is a funny time to get a trim, everyone has the same idea to look their best over party season, hence it's near impossible to get an appointment! jazzy ♥

  18. @claire- Ta very much :) it was great. I'm glad I didn't get it cut because there is nothing worse than a hair dresser messing up your fringe and I wouldn't have had time to let it grow.
