Soiree Splurges.

27 May 2008

So I went home for two days and went shopping yesterday for a bit of a post-exam treat! I found a dress for the soirée which I'm really pleased with. It was £45 and is described on their website as a tribal print triangle dress and is from Urban Outfitters. I bought a bandeau bra for it because it's quite low cut. In the photos I'm wearing them with some Navy Topshop heels, which I left at home and had forgotten all about! I will however be posting my complete oufit for the soiree next week as I'm going to be wearing some black open toed heels and probably jazzing it up a bit with a vintage belt, a little black clutch and I think some pink lipstick is in order! I've got to go shopping for materials for my carnival mask too....


I like how the dress can be dressed down and In the 'casual' photo I'm wearing a Navy bib-detail T-shirt from Topshop, Black Cardigan from H&M, Navy Belt from New Look and Sequinned KG pumps.
Below is the shot from the back as well as the little patent black bow I thought I might wear with the dress. I did consider buying pink but I think I'll keep it more classic with black accessories. Photos courtesy of my little 10yr old sister, bless her- she actually offered to take the photos for me!
