Dress classy, dance cheesy

I went out for a gnagnam style themed birthday on the weekend and had no idea what to wear. I'm old now and this fad has passed me by but apparently you need to dress classy and dance cheesy so I thought this black ASOS dress fitted the brief perfectly. I used a unidays discount code on this dress which meant it was only about £22 which isn't bad considering most dresses are about £35+ now. Remember the days when dresses in Primark were about £8 and a nice Topshop dress was £25... My night out involved lots of cheesy dancing and I didn't look quite so classy when I got home after a few gins and chips ;)

Dress: ASOS
Boots: eBay

I did a little (quite a lot, more things to show you in the week) lunch time online shopping on Friday and treated myself to some new underwear. Boux Avenue is were I get 80% of my bras. They have some great 50% off sales and I managed to pick both of these up for about a tenner each.

Delivery is cheap, or free if you pick it up from store and they sell a great selection in DD+ bras so it's one of my favourite stores. Gift wrapping is free and I will be using this when I buy my mum pyjamas for Christmas.

There are so many sales on at the moment and a huge student lock in at St David's in Cardiff tomorrow so I can tell that I'm going to be strapped for cash at the end of the month!

    1. I wouldn't normally splash out on a overpriced topshop necklace but I loved this one and it has a cord necklace that wont get tarnished. Hopefully it will last for ages.
