She threw her diamond ring out of a black cab in Camden.

What's this? An outfit post? Yes! First time in ages I know. Just a simple one but I thought I'd share all the same. I've had a busy month with uni and it's definitely not showing any signs of slowing down. On top of that I have lots of exciting things coming up this summer which are making me feel like a grown up and will require lots of planning but I won't forget about my little blog and my lovely followers.

I did my nails with Models Own goldrush and black nail pen and a matt coat of Topshop polish.

By the way I have a video review coming up this week for the tights I am wearing in this post so check for that. I also have a discussion on bloggers and reviews/sponsorships which I want to ask some opinions about. I'm not looking for sponsers or anything, but I have recently been made to feel like a bit of a puppet for a company I recieved some pushy emails from so I thought it'd be interesting to get some other bloggers views on the whole idea of advertising within blog posts. For now though here are some photos.

Dress - A-wear
Tights - We Love Colors
Shoes - Primark
Bag - Topshop
Rabbit tag - Urban Outfitters
Necklace - From Oi! Jewellery
Rings - (L-R) A-wear, Topshop, Primark.

The dress was a bargain, down from £40 to £25 and then when I got to the till it scanned through at £15! I love it, it's from A-wear, one of my favorite shops. It's an Irish shop but I think there are some in England now and they also have a website you can order from.

The little rabbit is a luggage tag, it doubles as being ridiculously cute and useful because it has my phone number and email address on it because I loose things a lot.

Oh and you can probably see I bleached the end of my hair a few days ago, I was inspired by the lovely Lily of LLYMLRS. I wanted a sort of ombré style. I really love it and it was really easy to do! In the spring I will probably lighten the ends a bit more and then dye them with a bright colour, I miss the pink hair I has as a teenager!

Just to finish off I wanted to share a song from one of my favorites, who is also from Ireland! Imelda May, being fabulous.

  2. looking lovely! Im tempted to buy some red tights after seeing this, I think a simple black dress and red tights would look awesome!

    I love the hair too! It looks awesome on your dark hair, the ends look pinkish (or is it gingery IRL) either way I love it!

    I cant wait to read the post on pushy PR people, ive had some awful experiences with them, like daily emails asking me when ill post about something. to the point i dont even want to post about a company!

  6. Beautiful outfit and ring, but the bag takes the cake! I was lusting after that Topshop bag for a while and when I could finally get it it had sold out. I've only recently started reading your blog and I already love your style!

  20. I love that dress! The whole outfit is great.

    I tired to give myself highlights, I was very nervous. In the end, I did not leave them on my hair long enough, so they did not come out.

  21. So many things I like and want to say...
    Love that dress, the drapes are amazing it would look great if there was a brooch were the drapes meet too.
    The tag on your bag is really cute AND I love your hair. I was thinking about doing something similar to my hair but I thought I might make a right mess and have to dye over it. How did you do it? I was going to apply some pre-lightener to the ends of my hair.
    The post on the pr people will be interesting, I've only had one experience and it wasn't the best

  25. urgh I hate PR people so much, I've been added to so many PR mailing lists for things that I'm not even interested in without my permission. I know I give my email address out freely on the blog but that is NOT what's it's for! I think your post will be interesting :D I love your hair too, it would look great bleached more and then with bright red put in it!

  29. I'm so jealous of your nails! I'd love to be able to do my nails like that! *sigh* I shall just have to find some other way to have leopord print nails....I love Awear too. They have some really nice dresses and things. At the moment though they seem to just be full of sales rails and the sheer volume has put me off looking through them. I may have to rethink that now after seeing your lil' bargain! And Imelda May = Awesome :]
