Ready for dancing - Barratts shoes

This is definitely my favourite Saturday night outfit for dancing in. I wore this out last Saturday and typing this up and seeing the photos is bringing back memories of the Dirty Pop night that I go to 'I knew you were trouble when you walked in, so shame on me now' Taylor Swift singalong anyone? I only like Taylor Swift between 12-3 on a Saturday night. That makes it acceptable, right?
I don't normally shop at French Connection but I tried this dress on and it's just so swooshy I couldn't leave it there. Its animal print but in a weird coral and navy combination that I've not seen before so a nice twist on all the other leopard print things I own. If I ever wear something girly I feel the need to toughen it up so I usually pair this dress with my studded clutch and some boots.

Dress: French Connection
Bag: Select
Boots: c/o Barratts

Barratts kindly provided these boots which are perfect for a night out. They add some height but I can actually walk in them, what more could a girl ask for? These photos are taken after I worn them a few times in grotty rock clubs and they are still looking good which I wasn't expecting for a suede-like material.
