Fancy dress

Joe Browns dress

Wearing: ‘Luscious Lace’ dress c/o Joe Browns, striped tights from Primark, leather stilettos from Faith (old), Vintage Bijoux locket c/o Gogo Philip, Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in shade 1

This black lace dress (which I received last week from Joe Browns) is decidedly witchy enough to pass for Halloween attire, I think, and I love that it feels ladylike yet the sheer sleeves give it a sexy edge. I think it’s gorgeous, I’m sure I’ll get a lot of wear out of it over the party season!

As you may have noticed I’ve had my hair cut! What do you think? Chris is not a fan and keeps insisting on calling me Garth :(

While I’m on the subject of hair here’s my promised follow-up to my review of Charles Worthington’s home straightening kit: I was initially impressed but that’s now turned into disappointment. The main thing I dislike about it though is that the horrible smell lasted for over a week, despite the fact that I wash my hair daily and was only supposed to linger for a couple of washes, plus my hair isn’t really much straighter or smoother anymore and it’s only been 2 weeks. Sorry CW but I wouldn’t recommend it! (I did get my new haircut at CW’s Percy Street salon though and my stylist Chloe was wonderful!)

I’ve also treated myself to some new make up including a Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick. I’d been looking for the purple shade for days but when I found it I didn’t like the way it looked on me so I went for a blue-red (another classic never hurts), which I’m also wearing in this photo. It lasts for an impressive amount of time and isn’t drying like a lot of lipsticks. I’ll definitely be trying a couple of other shades – it’s a bargain at £5.49 and cosmetics are on 3 for 2 at Superdrug at the moment!

Chris and I are attempting to make a pumpkin pie at the moment and it isn’t going well. After chopping the pumpkin we realised we’re sans blender and weighing scales and haven’t de-chilled the ready-roll pastry. After a giggle about the whole mess we’ve decided we might as well make a stab at it so it’s in the oven now and we’re about to watch “Home Alone” with our first mulled wine of the season.

Happy Halloween everyone!

  • The haircut looks great!! And I love the sheer sleeves on that dress– it’s very “of the moment” for sure. Hope the pumpkin pie turned out well! :)
