dress: primark
belt: topshop
leggings: H&M
gilet: forever 21
nails: nailene french nails*
shoes: office

Really, really like this outfit! Cheekily bought this dress from Primark last week for about £13. I got it in pink too (~haul~!) because I just couldnt resist. I could have probably got away with a 8 but a 10 is ok! I always find Primark dresses way too long for me so I had to fold it a bit at the waist! I decided to pair it with my fur gilet, which I'd actually already packed up so I had to dig through my boxes to find it! I also bought these £7.99  leggings from H&M. They are thick and shiney without being too shiney (get what I mean?), opaque and really black! Still taking baby steps away from my beloved American Apparel leggings, but Im very impressed by these ones from H&M.

I updated the links on the post I did yesterday about the teasing brushes. The seller completely sell out! There was only two sold before I posted about it! Bet they had a busy Monday morning! Really hope people like the brush if they bought it off my recommendation! Off to London for two days tomorrow and I've got a post scheduled for Wednesday, which is the outfit I wore on Saturday to a family meal! Have a good few days and I'll be back on Thursday!

  4. Huge fan of wedges, your shoes are ace. I get what you mean about the leggings. Some have that really pvc shine to them, but I like the inbetween ones which are sort of matte with a nice sheen. Enjoy London also.

  11. I absolutely love Pink Nouveau! It's one of those super bright lippies that you can wear anytime. The dress is lovely too and for £13? Definitely a bargain :)

  12. Shows your power to influence people... What will you do with it Lily? Lets hope you don't turn evil and convince people to buy badly made products or something horrific like that ;)
    Annyyyway, I very much love that lipstick. This is exactly the kind of shade which would wash me out arghh
    It would be mine
    H&M leggings are the best, I have the ones you mean

    1. hahah would I do that? no way! i have way too much integrity to shun crappy products down peoples throats! I just honestly had a good experience with it so thought I'd share it! such a bad thing that certain people in the blogasphere can give bloggers a bad name by doing stuff like that!

  13. You look utterly beautiful, however I think because you have so much gorgeous fur it's best if you send some my way before you move to London...keep your packing down and all that -coughs-. I joke, absolutely love the dress especially, Primark really comes up trumps sometimes especially two for £26 (literally no idea how long it took me to work out 13x2 and I work with children - doh!) you look really slim at the moment, even more so than normal, someone's obviously been good in January, I need to start following suit -crumples up chocolate wrappers-

  96. I had a look at these leggings the other day but wasn't sure they'd be long enough on me. I usually buy mine from the tall section in New Look but they are way too thin! I was too lazy to try them on - haha. I think I'll have to next time.

    Love the dress too - haven't been in Primark in ages - it's been too long!
