|Dress – Coast
Shoes – New Look
I couldn’t resist sharing the newest addition to my growing party-wear wardrobe which is this beautiful dress from Coast. Coast isn’t a shop I usually go for as the kind of parties I am invited to rarely require such fancy evening attire however I attended the Rainbow Valley charity ball on Saturday night which gave me the perfect excuse to get dressed up. I’m so in love with this dress but it doesn’t work too well with a big meal… Annoyingly it was a little tight around my chest (not normally an issue I have) but the size up was falling off so I just had to roll with it. It’s perfect for some swishy dancing a la Dirty Dancing and I seriously can’t wait to wear it again. Tulle for the win.
Luckily when I was picking up this dress I popped in to New Look to hunt for some shoes to match and found these beauties with a reasonable heel but not ridiculous enough that I couldn’t dance in them. These were in the wide fit section however I have pretty small feet and these were not wide in the slightest, I dread to think how my feet would have turned out if they hadn’t been wide fit! My poor toes.
Sadly after a weekend of drinks and dancing it’s now back to reality at university. I have about a month left before we break up for Christmas which is making me stress out big time about getting work finished. Once it’s all finished it will be fantastic though! I can’t wait for my deadlines to disappear and to not be working all hours of the day (retail at Christmas sucks) so that I can binge watch Gossip Girl guilt free – although at the rate I’m speeding through I’ll be finished all six seasons by the end of the month… Oops.
Hope you had a nice weekend!
