An understated statement

Today was my college induction, in which I was basically given lots of information that I already knew but it felt reassuring at the same time. After almost a week of illness I needed to wear a dress

This dress really is elegantly understated, I didn’t want to take the accessorising too far with it so went for pearls, vintage gold rings and spotted tights. Can you believe this dress is from Matalan Clearance?!

I’ve just said my tights are dotted, in actual fact they’re both spotted and dotted, the big blue spots become smaller little dots as they go down the leg.

After my induction –Or as it shall now be known You MUST complete toolbox 04/08/10- I went into town for a little shopping.  And now its time for a guessing game

-Shakes wobble board- Can you tell what it is yet?

That’s right I am now the proud owner of the HOH Super Suspender tights

Now back in December I was lucky enough to win the Alphabetights but I’m just hoping these don’t reach the same untimely demise.

I also found an amazing ring in Primark

How gorgeous is this luscious red lips ring?! I can definitely see this being a statement piece.

I’m so excited for The Next Big Event‘s victory day celebrations on saturday. My whole outfit is ready but you shall all have to wait until the day to see it. I will tell you that there will be polkadots involved though, but that isn’t really a shock now is it?

    Cute dress! I have the suspender tights. I kind of ripped them to shreds pretty quick but then again, I’m seem to be a hard taskmaster when it comes to legwear.
