tigerblood


ps. soz no details, my camera died!
dress: topshop
cardigan: primark
necklace: forever 21
lips: barry m peachy pink

I love this dress despite it being terrible ill fitting in these photographs. I bought it on a whim in Topshop with out even trying it on. My Mum said it looked like a dress my Gran would have worn when she was younger. However its pretty and I never wear pink. Its also that awful fabric Topshop seem to be obsessed with at the moment that is weird and kinda seethrough. I dunno. Its odd but awesome at the same time, lets put it that way!

Worked my old job today and it was surprisingly enjoyable. Despite having to get up at 6, I finished work at 1 and got home and did some chores. Its funny when you realize you were probably happier in the job you had before. I'm in two minds at the moment about leaving my job to focus on university. But I'm in one of those worrying moments where I'll hate having no income, and I've only got about 10 or so weeks left of it until I finish, so is it really worth it? OH SIGH.

I think everyone on high alert on Twitter re the Groupon Asos discount coupon but I'll post on here incase people don't have it. Basically is £9 spend for a £20 voucher. Which is absolutely amazing! I've bought three. You can buy them by clicking this link. I'm going to buy some Nars makeup with mine, probably some of the ~Laguna Bronzer~ and some of the cream blushes! I highly recommend this deal as its l ike ! (If theres any left by the time I've posted this!)

PS. I'm totes obsessed with all the Charlie Sheen dramz at the moment. I love a bit of crazy.  Even though hes clearly off his rocker! And I LOVE THIS AUTOTUNE THE NEWS SONG.

  1. What a pretty, pink dress from Topshop. The embroidery is quite charming. And I love your lip color! So glad you had the afternoon off to relax!

  6. I love your dress, its gorgeous, I must check it out at Topshop :)! Charlie Sheen is actually crazy but the videos he's posting make me laugh so much! I feel sorry for his kids to be honest, I wonder what they're thinking!

  8. I tried that dress on in Topshop and it was a weird fit on me, the elastic in the waist is at a weird place if that makes sense?! It's such a nice colour though and looks lovely on you!
    I haven't got one of those asos vouchers yet but I'm in 2 minds, hmm!

  14. I love the color of that dress, and the turquoise necklace paired with it looks amazing!
    And I have completely given up on trying to follow the Charlie Sheen drama, haha.

  15. That dress and the ASOS coupon are the epitome of 'epic winning' x

  16. Oh, i ADORE the dress! It is beautiful! And the turquoise necklace combination is great as well! Really pretty. It's good focussing on uni, but of course income is important as well. I'm not allowed to job at the moment because I've got some health issues going on, and it is really annoying. On the other side I've got enough time to focus on uni, which is good - but maybe you're able to work at the weekends only? I don't know what you're doing, but well :) Hope you find a good solution! =)
    Greets!

  41. Gosh that dress is the cutest thing! It's the perfect peachy toned pink I think (: I'm counting down the days til I can get back to my old job for four weeks over Easter, no income is the worst thing ever! xxx

  43. Love your dress and lipstick! So soft and pretty.
    I really want to get the asos voucher, but I have a question I hope someone can answer, do they give you a voucher code for the online shop?

    Love your blog Lily!

  44. I tried this dress on and it looked rancid on me. Looks so cute on you though! Wish I could pull of pinky shades!

  45. The dress is so pretty, I've been looking at it on the website but pink really doesn't suit me.

    I got the groupon email this morning, what a great deal!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love the dress, and it's so lovely paired with the cardigan, your combinations of clothes are always spot on! I'm ridic. excited about the asos groupon voucher too! x

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love how much you play with colour, I'm so envious of your ability to make colours you wouldn't think could work, work. I love this tone of pink on you, it really compliments your skin! And I love the fit too. It's a shame it's not a thicker material for you, but I don't think it looks like that in the photo :)

  48. Love the dress. I have a similar one from Topshop from ages ago.

    I bought the asos groupon with the intention of buying some Nars powder blushers but I've just realised they don't have any on asos grrrr

    ReplyDelete
  49. The dress is such a pretty color. I love the detailing on the bottom.

    That’s So Fletch


    xo, Jay

  50. The dress is a lovely colour, I know what you mean about Topshop's penchant for that strange fabric though :/
    If you have holidays left to take at work, perhaps you could use a week or two to concentrate on your studying, rather than leaving your job altogether?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love this dress and cardigan together! I seriously need some new cardigans - think a trip to Primark is in order.

    That auto tune the news vid is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I actually really like the dress - I don't think it looks bad at all in the pics. I love the colour and detailing at the bottom. But if I wore it, I'd probably try a waist belt with it (but then I'm obsessed with waist belts! so don't listen to me!)

    I can't believe that cardigan is from Primark! Looks more expensive - like it was from Topshop :)

    Thanks for the ASOS tip off by the way! May try it x x

  54. oh that dress looks really cute on you :D

    and I might try to buy that asos-voucher eventhough I'm from germany.. hopefully it'll work for me too^^

  55. Can't your work give you any study leave? When my friend worked at Asda she could get about 2 weeks off (unpaid like...) during exams. Then you can still go back to the job after your deadlines and everything. Might be worth asking? I know hos stressful final year of uni can be though! Good luck lily.

  56. always so gorgeous- a bit granny chic too which i LOVE and the barry m peachy pink lips going on! Got to check out this groupon milake... sounds like a cheeky little offer i cant refuse!katie.xx fashion clocked

  57. Pretty dress. And the ASOS Groupon deal is amazing, I might have bought two despite saying that I'd give up shopping for Lent. x

  59. LOL I'm totes nuts on The Sheen as well! He cracks me UP...been spitting quotes like "like my feet" all week!! LOL
    I do love your dress, don't think it looks too grannified tbh. And i know how you feel about the employment woes...I'm in 2minds on whether to get a p/t job atm just for some extra income....dunno

    Xisses, Onyxsta

  63. Lol I know what you mean about Topshop's obsession with that fabric! Sometimes it's a bit painful to buy their stuff - so overpriced for such flimsy things. Ahh but the styles are wonderful and so irresistible. :3

    I love this dress btw! And being told that your outfit is something "grandma" would wear is always a compliment in my book! (I'm weird like that)

  71. I really love the colour of this, but I know what you mean about that material- Topshop's favourite! RAGE. I don't think I've ever bought a dress or top from there that I don't have to wear anything underneath!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Gorgeous dress! The colour really suits you, and I was only thinking the same about Topshop fabric yesterday! Everything seems to be see through atm, very annoying!

  95. Ha oh I can't get enough of Mr Sheen. He clearly is on a world of his own. Other than commenting on his antics, love that dress! It doesn't look like an odd material but I'm not the biggest fan of Toppers quality so it doesn't surprise me - looks gorgeous all the same. jazzy ♥ Ps. A week Saturday sweets! :)
