Library and Information Professionals) and the Welsh branch had a conference this week in a posh hotel in Cardiff. Huw Lewis who is Minister for Housing, Regeneration and Heritage was there and a few of my colleagues were talking at the event. The theme was leadership and I thoroughly enjoyed the day. It's really nice to speak to people who work in other libraries and it really made me think about where I want to be in a few years time.
I thought I had better make a special effort for the occasion so I wore some colour (usually wear black to work) and dusted off my smart satchel ready for the conference. One of my all time fave blogging ladies Sarah gave me this wonderful dress when we met up for Ldn Lunch a couple of months ago. This dress along with some other gorgeous ones are all to big for Sarah now but fit me perfectly. Nobody tells you that weight loss is expensive, all my money is going on new clothes so Sarah's donations were very welcome.
Dress: Topshop (via Sarah)
Shoes: New Look
Necklace: Dorothy Perkins
I don't usually go for matching make up, usually stick to pinks but I bought some orange YSL lipstick and matching gloss when I was in New Zealand a couple of years ago and I never wear it. Wearing and orangey peach dress was a great excuse to dig it out. Going to try and wear this more often. I have about 30 lipsticks and I vow not to buy anymore until I have used one up.
Do you get to go to any fun events with work? Can you guess where the title of the post is from?
I'm off to see The Horrors tonight and I will be wearing all black which is my usual gig attire, can't wait!
p.s. there is a Zaggora Viva HotPants giveaway running on my other blog Where Are My Knees
