Femme Fatale

I wore this outfit to work yesterday with flats and then popped some heels, lippy and a hair band on to go and meet friends after work. I NEVER wear bright lipstick so I felt a bit self conscious all night. I have Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy which I wear all the time, I much prefer nude lip colours. Thanks for all the tips on my last outfit post, I'm going to invest in a red cardi it would look nice with this dress and the last one.



Dress: Peacocks
Cardigan: H&M
Shoes: Next
Necklace: Vivienne Westwood
Belt: New Look

The title of the post isn't a reference to something cool like The Velvet Underground song it's because the new Britney album came out on Monday, woohoo!


I love BritBrit, listening to her in bed whilst painting my nails.

A very messy attempt at putting some Magenta Divine on that Sarah sent me. I love it and I might put another coat on so it's solid glitter.

I bought loads of new albums this week including The Strokes, The Vaccines and Joy Formidable. What have you been listening to recently?

  7. I'm listening to White Lies none stop lately, literally now - earlier - probably later as well.. very good throwback 80s glam rock. Loving your new(ish) fringe darl! You lot HOTT! I know what you mean about bright lippie, I'm a bit scared of it too but I'm branching out with shades of coral and orange to test the waters before I go full on red. ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

  17. Hey,
    I love your style.....I am also a lover of dresses, they are so much more comfier then trousers!
    Also a tip for doing nail varnish, Avon sell a corrector pen, I sware by it can make as much of a mess as you want and just wipe it off at the end.
    Anyway I'm now a follower of your blog....I have just started my own, if you would like to have a browse.
    Thank you xxx

  18. Thanks for the lipstick love girls, I may wear red mroe often! I have a ysl orange lipstick that I never wear because everyone says it makes me look like La Roux but I'm sure it will look nice in the summer.

    @Funny Little Frog- that correction pen sounds fab, I will have to check it out.

    @Claire(jazzpad.)- I saw White Lies support Glasvegas on tour before, they were amazing!!
