All women know the power of the Little Black Dress. The magic LBD can be worn any number of ways and lends itself to many occasions. This was the idea behind ellos.co.uk's Friday Night Fashion Frock-off. Four bloggers were sent the same dress and asked to style it however they wished. A panel of judges will choose a favourite and the winning blogger gets £150 towards a meal out for them and their friends. Wish me luck! Here's my entry...
Marc Jacobs heels, homemade pom poms, a slick of Sleek 'cherry' lipstick and not forgetting a lot, lot, lot of backcombing. Thank you to my lovely friend Bryony who could have laughed a lot more than she did while taking the photos. What do you guys think of the look?
I don't know about you but it takes me ages to get into the swing of January. We're supposed to be refreshed and raring to go but I'm more like a dormouse emerging from a nest of chocolates and Home Alone.
I am very much enjoying my new Chanel compact mirror – well the look of it anyway, it has yet to come out of the present pile and 'into circulation'. My Jigsaw wallet is huge and beautiful. Thanks Mummy Wheat for these lovely gifts.
Other happenings have included a little one-year anniversary for J and I for which I was treated to a lovely meal at the same restaurant we went to for our first real date. He also bought me flowers both days of the weekend which equalled one huge, heavenly bunch.
The last of the Christmas chocolates have nearly gone – I was down to the disgusting orange and strawberry Roses but don't worry I still ate all of them. The tape measure is an old cracker gift. I've decided to keep it in my bag as I'm always in need of one and trying to wrap J's metal tape measure around my waist just isn't practical.
I found the necklace in the Accessorize sale. It had a disgusting white backing and some dangly chain things, both of which I removed. I've already had to glue two stones back in but I do love it.
