My hands down favourite look of the night though was this amazing Principles by Ben de Lisi striped black and white a-line skirt. I've fallen madly in love with it although I will admit I did first think it was a dress when I saw it on the mannequin on the night! Regardless once I shift a few pounds I'm so adding this to my wardrobe. I tend to be anti-skirt for some reason but I'll make and exception here!
I also loved these Red Herring Black Studded Wedges; I'm a sucker for anything studded lately and I have this theory that wedges don't make your feet hurt as much and are easier to walk in. I'm pretty sure my theory is absolute bologna but I still find myself drawn to wedges over heels!
There were so many amazing beauty products from the beauty hall as well and there were lovely ladies from Nail Girls giving manicures (more on that later), Benefit doing brows and Bare Minerals doing mini-make unders--- I'm in desperate need of a new foundation and was actually quite surprised to find how much coverage powder can give you. I was also shocked to find out I'm not the palest shade available :)
There were so many beauty brands out out display from CK One, Illamasqua, Clarins...I could go on and on! I'm a huge fan of my Urban Decay Naked Palette so I was really excited to get a look at their limited edition Great and Powerful Oz Palettes. I personally loved the Urban Decay Glinda Palette but then I'm a sucker for purple and shimmer
So what did I wear? I saw this outfit on Pinterest and thought I could finally wear the glitter sweatshirt I got at HM over a year ago! Unfortunately the neckline meant I couldn't really recreate the outfit as it was in the pin but I decided to stick to my guns and finally wear it.
Black Cropped Blazer-HM
Gold Sequin Sweatshirt-HM
Nude Studded Heels-New Look
The sweatshirt is quite baggy around my middle as I've got a disproportionally small waist compared to my bust and butt so I needed the blazer to cinch it in a bit and give me some shape. I wasn't 100% sold on the look but I was glad I finally wore the freaking thing.
While at the Debenhams SS13 show I got my nails done. I was originally going to get navy nails with an accent nail but the ladies for Nail Girls sold me on the not-yet-available-to-the-public coral shade for spring. It was out of my dark nail comfort zone but I like the result. Plus it gave me a reason to break out my coral Cynthia Rowley dress the next day!
So what am I excited for this SS13? Well mostly the weather because I'm totally an open toed shoe kind of girl but I'm loving monochromatic outfits with bright nails and a fresh face. What spring/summer trends are you looking forward to this year?
