I think I can finally say I've recovered from my sisters hen do on Saturday. I might have drunk FAR too much and suffered from the WORSE hangover but I made sure I spoke to everyone and everyone had a really good time :)
We saw a burlesque show at Proud in Camden and I highly recommend it- the drink prices where VERY reasonable for London, the male host was AMAZING (literally made the night) and more shocking one of the staff recognised me! I have no idea where from but she did :) I obviously make an impact on people :D
Unfortunately my legs are still a mess (a month on from the insect massacre) so it was a trousers night for me but I'm desperate to start getting them out but look at them.
I'm 80% sure I'll be scarred from the bites.
Dress: Motel Rocks
Back pack: Camden Market
Necklace c/o Gogo Philip
Bracelet: Gogo Philip (actually a necklace)
Earrings: Gogo Philip
This is the second look incorporating Gogo Philip- this time an urban sort of take.
At the Gogo event I was in awe of several of the girls and just how cool they were. Me Hannah and Kayleigh actually joked about a Mean Girl style "you can't sit with us" sort of thing as we where there- its important to remember everyone we met where beyond friendly- they where just so cool.
Brick lane seems to breed girls and guys that ooze the Urban feel about them. I fell in love with a girl who was dressed in a stripe midi dress, back pack and vans- something I had to recreate.
I rarely ever go down the "urban" route so this is a welcome step out of my comfort zone, pairing a loved body con with my converse (which I never understand why I don't wear as often as I should) and no tights/heels for once. I simply layered on my wrists and threw on some hoops.
I think the hoops are a throwback to Essex in the 90s- everyone had a pair of hoops, mixed with my girl crush on Rhianna which I've tried (and failed) to channel.
Inspired by Rhianna/ some brick lane realness this Tupac necklace looks perfect (anything from the Malibu 1995 screams cool), and the Castle earrings (from the Disney collection) is a lovely chunky take on some hoops that I really like.
P.S. my boyfriend would like to take full credit for the title- and make it known he has coined the phrase "ghetto goddess" ;)
