black mamba







dress: missguided
jacket: primark
necklace: topman
rings: jwlry
belt: topshop
nails: gosh nail glitter in rose quartz

Well shopping kinda failed today considering I slept about 3 and a half hours last night and didn't think it would be safe to drive on so little sleep. Spent the day looking at Christmas Hampers (seriously there are so many to choose from) and packing jewellery orders. Pretty average/boring/standard. Ive been craving a Nandos all day, fingers crossed I'll make it to Birmingham tomorrow and I can get one! Omnomnom.

This outfit is from a few days ago when I was deciding if I should keep the dress or not. I really like it, but I decided not keep it as its a little tight across my ample bosom and rather short, even for me. I didn't really like it worn with leggings either, then add my usual heels in it just looked like I forgot to put a skirt on, so it just seemed silly to keep it. DRESSES Y U SO SHORT AT THE MOMENT! I normally have the problem with them being too long! Im 5ft5, hardly a giant!

  3. I love the dress and the fact that it matches your lippy! But if you are never going to wear it, you might as well return it, indeed.

  5. I had the same problem with missguided, but I sort of expected it being on the taller side. It's such a shame though because they have some lovely stuff on there!

    On the positive side this colour looks amazing on you and I'm definitely gonna have to check out that nail polish :)

  6. Such a shame the dress was no good, it's a gorgeous colour!
    I had the same problem with a Lavish Alice dress, it was about four inches too small across my chest :(

  16. I like the dress, it's a lovely colour, but could be a much better fit. The pink is nice against the black leather though too.

    I have to finish my Christmas shopping tomorrow too and am not looking forward to it, it's gonna be busy eek!

  17. I love the colour of that dress it looks so pretty with your hair/skin-tone. I totally have the 'short' issue too and it drives me mad. It seems even though I'm only 5"4.5 dresses seem to want to jussst skim my crotch. Ridiculous seeing as like you I'm hardly giant material?! I feel like as I was such a micro miniskirt advocate between 15-18 they're coming back to bite me now.

  23. I really love the dress, but if it's short on you, I'm 5ft8 so it'll be a top on me!! I really want to buy from misguided but the length of the things is always a concern for me. Wish you could select a length for your hight! x

  24. I really love this nail varnish and totally agree with your point about dresses becoming inconveniantly short!

    You were saying on twitter how your outfit didn't look the same in pictures? Well I think you've done a very good job on Photoshop because you look lovely - one of your more girly outfits (shame about the dress) xxx

  25. I love websites like missguided and boohoo but being 5"10 I can never get away with their dresses which makes me sad! They should totally make a tall section already!!

  27. I'm 5"11 and the missguided dresses are awfully short on me... More like tops literally. Bum on show and everything :/ x

  28. That dress is such a gorgeous colour, it really suits you. Such a shame it wasn't right, I hate ordering something online and then when it arrives it's not as good as you expected!

  57. I'm 5ft 9ins and hate too short dresses!! Some are even too short for leggings like this one and just don't look nice at all - I wish tall sections did more fashionable dresses rather than just frumpy ones...

    Your nails are a gorgeous colour - at first I thought your were wearing Models Own Pink Fizz
