Let's go Navy...

Posted on: 28 November 2008

I bought a dress a couple of weeks ago on a whim. Having not worn it, I decided to dye the dress (and the slip it came with) navy blue and also managed to shrink it. While the latter was a mistake, it turned out for the better as it is now petite sized!

All the different Combos....
1. Lace Dress (River Island-customised) Black Dress underneath (Vila)
2. Grey Dress underneath (River Island)
3.Grey Leopard T-shirt (Miss Selfridge)Denim Skirt underneath (TopShop)Black Wool Cardigan (All Saints) Belt (River Island)
4.Lace Dress worn with the slip it came with.Navy Skirt (American Apparel)
Also, feast your eyes on this if you're a Hello Kitty fan. I'm not quite as mad over it as I used to be growing up but I still love Hello Kitty and so does my little sister! This can be seen in some of the Pictures taken in her room where I have lots of Hello Kittys lurking in the background. So I am really looking forward to this MAC collection when it comes out next February! See Temptalia for more details!
A random photo of the hideously pink cake my youngest sister decorated for school. Pink icing, barbie pink decorations, glace cherries and edible pink ball bearings! yum??!

Off to visit my friend in Camden this weekend. We're planning on trips to art galleries, maybe a bit of a shop and of course a night out or two! Should be fun, hope everyone has a good weekend!
