Sparkles and Lace

Posted on: 13 November 2009

OK so strictly speaking, the last birthday post wasn't really the last one. In fact last night marked the finale of my birthday celebrations! A bunch of us at uni had birthdays in the last two weeks and to celebrate, we headed out to a jazz club in Birmingham, The JamHouse which is owned by British musician/presenter extraordinaire Jools Holland and even better, it was big band night!

So what could me more appropriate than wearing my sparkly gift from New Look? I felt quite jazzy!
Sequined cardi (New Look) Lace Top (Topshop) Grey dress underneath (River Island) Shoes (New Look) Belt (Topshop)
I love this little lace top that I came across in Topshop. I'm short enough to be able to wear it as a dress. It's the prettiest thing and I plan on wearing it in the day with leggings and flats because it's too pretty to sit in my wardrobe! I actually don't have any real 'dressy' clothes because I wear everything in the daytime and dress them up a little bit for nights out. Do any of you guys have the same issue as me?
It was an epic mash up of our birthdays and it was such a good night! My feet really hurt from dancing the night away...those scholl party feet pads do not help in the slightest! Right, I'm off to catch up on my blog reading!

  16. You're having more birthday celebrations than the Queen! Sounds fun though, wish I went to this much effort. I have the same issue as you, I overbuy daytime stuff such as tops and cardigans and end up lost when the evening comes. Typical 'going-out' clothes are quite pricey, so I guess that's why I buy the cheaper daytime stuff. I too recently bought a lace dress, but am searching for a darker slip to wear underneath, so I don't look too much like I'm off to a wedding! This looks great with the sequins.
