SIXTIES SIREN

I was challenged to create a glamourous red carpet look and being me, I of course wanted to put a sixties twist on it. Thanks to the Great British weather, the only time these photo’s could be taken it was of course raining, so inside will have to suffice. I feel like I could be one of those glamourous gambling ladies with their fur and beehive hair, sauntering off to grab a casino bonus and rake in their wins. I just wish I could have shown you this dress full length in all it’s glory – It’s perfect for the era I was aiming for. In fact, I adore it so much that I’ve had to snap it up in another colour too!

This weekend I’ve got some rather ‘grown up’ things to do, such as mortgage advisor appointments and the like. It’s things like that that suddenly make you realise you’ve grown up an awful lot and are no longer fifteen year old Emily with no dress sense. I’m looking forward to it none the less; buying our first house is an exciting prospect (well, mainly the decorating!). In fact, I may have started a pinterest board for inspiration already, despite it being six months or so away.. whoops.

I recently updated my youtube channel with a ‘fifty random facts’ video – if you don’t already, please go and subscribe as I’ve got lots more coming up! I have plans to start introducing beauty to my blog and I’d love to know your opinions on this? You’re the ones that come to read after all! I plan to have seperate tabs in my navigation bar, so that if you prefer just to read my style posts you can, and vice versa with beauty posts. As I said, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    I love that dress, I nearly bought it last week in the sale and now seeing it on you I wish I had (I am on a shopping ban for rest of February) I just hope it is still available when the shopping ban is over. I found your blog through your Sarenza’s pin of your Kurt Geiger shoes, lovely! I am now following you :)
