I got this lovely monochrome abstract tunicy-dress from the Very.co.uk Bloggers Event that I attended earlier on in the week. I didn't originally pick this, I chose a Daniel Sandler Blush and some Loafers but had to do swapsies when I got there after seeing this in person! Its one of those things that are so easy to wear and simple but look really good.  I don't really think about shopping at Very, but after doing some exploring trying to find the link for this dress I'm actually pleasantly surprised. They have a pretty good range of stuff! I pulled out my old favourite flatforms (my Office ones have taken over that place in my heart!) and forgot how ridiuclously comfy these ones are. Kinda in love with this nail combination at the moment, I love how OPI Rainbow Connection (dupe is Technic Carnival if you can find it!) looks against the greyish purple of Models Own Utopia. Reminds me of cupcakes!

Had a sleepover with Kate and Emma last night after going to Zoe's ZOMG lipstick launch. So lovely seeing your friends do exciting things! Was really well attended event and so nice to see people! I was left alone in Selfridges for far too long and I ended up buying something ridiculously naughty! I'll show it on here or Twitter in a few days! Its absolutely gorgeous though!

  10. The blogger events sound fun!

    I love your nails, I have Deborah Lippmann 'Happy Birthday' which is very close to a dupe of this OPI one. The Deborah Lippmann one is just a bit less silver. It's like a party on your nails! I love it :)

  26. So I'm sitting here like 'ooh I have a ring like that' then it dawns on me that I brought them off you - facepalm moment that's for sure. Absolutely love the tunic I would probably swap half my wardrobe for it so you know~ bye bye loafers and blush~. Your nails are dead cute too and it really is the loveliest thing when you can support the ones you love doing something they're really into, glad you had a lovely time!

  40. I couldn't help but noticing - AND STARING - at your naughty buy last night. Was sexier than the burlesque, and that is saying a lot! Hahahaha!

    Didn't got around to talk to you though, but hopefully will make up for it on Saturday. : )
