I survived the hen night last night, woo-hoo.
It was a lot of fun, despite not being able to drink. I was a bit lame though at left at 11, just as the others were hitting the bars. I'm not a fan of clubs and bars, well, I am, but not when I'm the only one staying sober. By that point I was being attacked in all directions by negative body image and feeling tres insecure, so in a way I was glad to escape and get home and sleep.
I didn't get very good photos of my outfit,
the dress actually has more detail at the back than the front, in the form of a zipper and a tie back. I also wore a black tuxedo jacket, but failed to snap a photo. I'm sure photos from other people will start surfacing before long though, I totally forgot my camera was in my bag and didn't take any.
I love this dress, it's New Look limited edition and I almost bought it a while back, though I'm glad I didn't as this was given to me for free by a friend!
It did give me no end of hassle though as I hate where it falls on my thighs and feels it makes me legs look, well, chunky.
C'est la vie. I ignored those thoughts for the most part and concentrated on having a wicked time, which I did
(especially as I was out with relative strangers, the hen do was for a colleague of my Mum's, but I've been adopted in to their social group it would seem...the people are so lovely and so hilarious)
My makeup looked more dramatic in real life. Though I can never get super bold, bright eyeshadow like other people seem to be able to. Any hints and tips?
and I arrived home from work/seeing my grandparents yesterday to find a package from an awesome friend in the USA who saw these tights and "just had to get them" for me.
I was looking through my tights drawer yesterday (yes, I have an entire drawer!) I have over 20 pairs that I regularly wear, though 1/4 of those are black/nude and 8 un-opened packs! Addict, much?
My only other recent aquisition is a penis shaped straw, sneakily stolen from the hen do...
no-one needs a picture of that though, do they?!
Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!
