Listening to: Hit The Road Jack- Ray Charles.
Sorry once again for the lack of blogging- although the unit i am on is closed Christmas and Boxing day being a hospital it has been manic these last week. I am very much looking forward to cutting down my hours too only 37.5 a week in the new year- as i have finally applied for the job I've been doing for the last year (and if I don't get it there will be hell to pay).
Last night was a busy night, I went to a men's waxing charity event (where I volunteered Chris of course) run by my friend Lucinda in prep for her running the London marathon (please read this link and donate if you feel like it- its for an amazing cause). Then to a gig with a few friends bands- which started out as a nightmare (where the bands and 60+ supporters were forced to leave because of 1 or 2 rude men- they said goodbye to a grand or two) and relocated (to what I can remember as a rough pub) and ended up having a very good night.
This is what I ended up wearing- I thought it was only right that i supported the boys and got my legs out.
Dress: DIY (originally Topshop)
Sheer Jacket: eBay
Bag: River Island (similar here)
Shoes: Iron Fist
Swallow Earrings: Topshop
Lips: Kiss Of Life (Kate Moss for Rimmel)
I have completely fallen in love with this lipstick- its colour and staying power is amazing! But after being on my feet all night in slippery socks my feet are aching this morning, and someone split a pint of beer all over my dress :(
I love my sheer jacket and have been wearing it almost every time I go out in the evening. I remember how hard it was to find (this one actually came with sequins I had to remove) but I have spotted a few on line. The first here is from Mind the Mustard (who I have been obsessing over on Lookbook at the moment), the second in from Dixi (and I like the extra detailing in it), or an alternative to black- this purple number form Nordic Poetry.
