The Topshop Tea Dress + Wishlist

Black Tea Dress - Topshop
Sunglasses - River Island (sold out similar here)
Velvet Heels - Topshop (sold out similar here)

I took these pictures a few weeks back when I first wore this dress. I've worn it about twice since because I absolutely love it. I think the tea dress style really suits my body shape and its so easy to wear. I love the ruched sleeve and the polka dot detail on this black dress from Topshop. Tea dresses also look great as both a daytime dress and a going out dress. I wore it to a party last weekend with a peach furry clutch bag and heels and it looked so cute. 

Topshop have such a cute selection of tea dresses this summer. I've already bought the red one with ruffles even though the last thing I need is more red dresses! Here are a few of my favourite tea dresses ...

Horfield Common

pink blouse - topshop (sold out similar herehere and here)
gingham leggings - topshop

For my digital marketing project, I'm writing a fashion post on some pieces from Topshop so I thought I'd post a few pictures of one of the outfit I featured. We took the pictures in the park near out flat. The daffodils have just come out so its so pretty. It was a pretty windy day so as you can see I'm fighting with my hair in most pictures. I really love this pink top, the sleeves are amazing and its so comfortable. I've had these gingham leggings for quite a while but I thought I'd resurrect them since gingham is such an outfit staple these days. I hope you're enjoying the sun this weekend, I'm torn between writing my essays and going out the sun, why does the sun always come out during exam season!

March Photo Diary: Internship, Warpaint, New Vinyl

At the beginning of March I got a marketing internship at a charity in Bristol so I'm working there every Tuesday :) I still work as a waitress on the weekends and its essay time at uni so the blog is taking a bit of a back seat

I bought these amazing shoes from Public Desire, they're basically dupes of the Stella McCartney flatforms but sadly they don't fit :( I usually have this problem because all shoes are too long for me, or else my feet are just too short either way its major first world problems 

The weather has been so good in Bristol recently, it really is a lot sunnier down south, this a picture of a field of daffodils in the park outside my flat which is very #spring 

my parents came over for a visit this month and we went to Bath. Its a really pretty city. I want to go back there with Mum and try out the Thermae Bath Spa, it looks so good

Me and Chris went to see Warpaint in Birmingham and they were so good, it has really made me want to start playing bass again, it has taken a bit of a back seat too

we stayed in the Pentahotel in Birmingham, we stayed there last time we went to a gig in Birmingham and loved it

the decor is lush

Birmingham Bowie!

we took a quick trip to HMV and I got this Blondie vinyl for only £7.99, such a bargain

I also got this stooges re-issue that I was eyeing for ages but tbh the Bowie remix is quite bad, I prefer the original remix a lot more

I'm making some fashion content for my Digital Marketing project atm so there should be some outfit shots appearing here soon :)

February Photo Diary: Valentines, The Ritz and The Gin Birkins

A few pictures from February ...
I tried wearing my hair up once, I didn't keep it up for long, still trying to master the updo
I bought tickets for The Kills in May, its their 15th anniversary so Im sure they will put on an amazing show (as always)
it was sunny for the first time this year so I had to document it

I finally put up The Smiths framed poster Chris bought me last year. We are renting a flat so we aren't allowed to put nails in the wall which is so annoying because id love to decorate it more. Anyway we figured out a way of hanging it without marking the wall (its complicated)

Heres my cheesy smile when Chris gave me some flowers for Valentines Day

my outfit that night wearing all Topshop

I got this amazing and other stories dress this month, I love it but it leaves a trail of glitter everywhere

I went to London to meet up with my auntie and she took me to the The Ritz for a drink, it was very pretty as you can see

the ballroom (we werent really allowed in here)

me and my goofy smile (and some olives)

I got a cocktail called The Ritz 100, it was created for their 100th anniversary, it was made of rum, orange liquer and gold flakes

my auntie got the Marie Antoinette, it was a lot sweeter than mine

I got some Chanel makeup in London too! its my first foray into designer makeup, I got the Le Teint Ultra Tenue foundation in Beige Rose and the Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick in La Raffinee. The foundation is a good match to my skintone and really long lasting but it does feel a little heavy on the skin. I really love the lipstick, it honestly feels like velvet and its such a nice pink shade. I've been looking for a subtle pink shade for ages but nothing suited me as well as this one

I also took a really quick trip to Dublin to meet up with some friends. I visited some of my old haunts like Tower Records on Dame Street
I also went to the bookshop on Dame Street called Hodges and Figgus. Unfortunatly I forgot to take any pictures when I was out and I stupidly forgot my phone charger but it was a really nice night out

I went to a gig last week in Bristol that a friend was organising, there were some really great bands from Wales and Bristol. This picture is of The Gin Birkins, check out their bandcamp
I bought a tshirt from them with a picture of Jane Birkin on the front, I can't wait to wear it :P

I also redesigned my blog this month, I hope you like it :)
