June Favourites

Time for another monthly favourites as we approach July, this months favourites is very beauty heavy. Right lets get to it... With the warmer dare I say summery weather (well all two days of it) I've been reaching for the Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation £11.99 to give my skin a fresh luminous glow. This foundation is creamy and lightweight with a thicker consistency that most foundations but it gives a really lovely fresh faced finish. You can read my full review on the Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation here.

Primark is my favourite place to get pyjamas from as the PJ section is full of cool cute pyjamas at reasonable prices. I've bought my fair share of PJs from Primark recently as I'm loving their collection right now. This minuet I saw the Emoji (£8) pyjamas bottoms on Primark I had to have them and when I saw them in the Glasgow store I ran to them and grabbed my size, I also got these super cute cropped PJs in the vintage cereal and MTV designs (both £8). Then in my local Primark I picked up these palm printed PJ bottoms in the sale for around £2/3.

This month I've been loving the Real Techniques Sculpting Set that I recently bought I've used it almost everyday since I bought them. All three brushes are great quality and a bargain at £20.99 they also wash really well. The fan brush is great for dusting off extra powder and applying highlighter, the setting brush is ideal for blending and setting concealer and powder under you eyes, lastly the sculpting brush is excellent for contouring it slots nicely under the cheek bone to create a natural looking shadow and it blends products really well. These brushes are a welcome addition to my brush collection and I know I'm going to get a lot of use from them.

So unless you've been hiding under a rock then you probably know that June saw the eagerly awaited next instalment of Orange Is The New Black with Netflix adding all of season 3 on the 12th of June. I drew it out for as long as I could but watched the whole season in under a week, sorry not sorry! I'll be honest I didn't love this season as much as the previous ones which is a shame, I hope the next season is better but big love for Ruby Rose who is a babe! 

My most reached for blusher this month has been Dallas by Benefit £23.50, it's a pinky brown bronzer meet blush that gives a subtle hit of shimmer and a rosy bronzed glow over my face. The packaging it quirky with just the right amount of gimmick, £23.50 is a little pricey for a blusher but I really like it. Dallas is a great blush for us pale and fair skinned people.

Lastly this month I've been loving the Maybelline Master Sculpt Contour Kit £6.99 this contour and highlight duo is affordable and easy to use and gives you the perfect contour colour for under your cheekbones. My review on the Maybelline Sculpt Contour Kit will be up on my blog on Wednesday so make sure to pop back to read that, you can follow my blog by pressing here!

Taylor Swift 1989 Tour | The Hydro | 23/06/15

Tuesday night in Glasgow saw 12'000 eager and excited people cramming into the SSE Hydro for Taylor Swifts sold out performance of her 1989 tour. The merchandise stand queues where almost out the door as everyone wanted to get their hands on a souvenir of what would be an incredible night. Lots of homemade signs (even some with lights), costumes and excited fans decorated the hydro for top to bottom, everyone even got a light up wrist band that changed colour and lit up the the music. The lights went down right on time and the show began with Taylor and her dancers performing Welcome To New York and with that saw the start of a two hour spectacle. Taylor looked flawless through out, her costumes were gorgeous and she walked the runway like a Victoria's Secrets model. 'I happen to love Scottish people' Taylor told the crowd as she went on to say how her dad had sent an email telling her to tell the Scottish crowd that most of their family was Scottish. 

The setlist was mainly made up of Taylor's recent and bloody brilliant hit album 1989, with a few older favourites thrown in. I loved that when she played 'I Knew You Were Trouble' and 'We Are Never Getting Back Together' they had a rocker sound. There was a really gorgeous moment when Taylor did a mash up of Enchanted and Wildest Dreams on the piano and Clean was another stand it moment for me. The pop breakup/love ballad Blank Space had me singing and dancing along as did the last song of the night Shake It Off, in fact I was on my feet all night singing and dancing my heart out. 

Between songs, costume changes and stage resetting video clips played of some of Taylor's famous friends (Cara Delevigne, Lena Dunham and Selena Gomez to name a few) talking about her, her album, female friendship and empowerment. Taylor's chats between song were along the same lines mostly about friendships, empowerment, love and heartbreak but instead of sounding like a preacher she does it with such humour and honesty. 

Taylor brought glitz, glamour and a lot of pop to Glasgow and the crowd loved every minuet of it. I cannot explain just how fun, inspiring and utterly brilliant the night was. While the crowd screamed, cheered and clapped along at times Taylor looked genuinely overwhelmed. If your going to see the 1989 world tour your in for a treat I guarantee you'll leave a bigger fan than when you went in. It's easy to see why Taylor Swift is the hottest thing in the music industry right now and she's a great role model for young people all over the world. Props to Taylor, her amazing dancers and backing singers for putting on a pop show extravaganza! 

Ps) can I be part of your girl-gang Taylor?

Festival Fashion Inspiration

Following on from yesterday's post where I shared my top 20 festival tips with you today I thought I'd share with you some festival fashion inspiration. Outfits for festivals should be practical, comfy and make you feel confident there's no point in wearing something that you feel uncomfortable in or that you have to constantly sort - ain't nobody got time for that! I've been looking online and in stores for festival inspiration and thought I'd share it with you. (all items are linked and the photos are taken from the stated website)

This clear mac is super cool and quirky I've been thinking about getting one for a while now what do you think? I think they'll be nice for a festival because it will keep you dry and your outfit will still be on show plus it's got a hood and pockets. The only problem with jackets like these are that some of them make a horrible noise when it rubs together, this only is only £22.99 from New Look so wont break the bank. I really like these black ombre mom shorts from ASOS I actually ordered them last month so I had them for festival season, they have a little turn up and are high waisted which I love, I think they'll look really nice with a top tucked in like this striped cami from ASOS. When it comes to festivals footwear has to be practical and comfy for me and I love my Dr Martens I'd recommended them to anyone who goes to a lot of festivals. I would pair this outfit with a choker and a backpack so I had somewhere to store all my essentials and the mac when the weather was nice, I think this would be a cute outfit for any festival.

This outfit is a one stop shop everything is from New Look, the bag would hang nicely over the shoulder or across your body, it's great size for everything you need without the temptation to over pack and you can draw the bag in to stop people getting their hand in when your in the crowd. The high leg wellies would be great for a rainy day because with rain comes mud and the sunglasses would protect your eyes whatever the weather. Now on to the bulk of the outfit the shorts have a really nice tile flower print with a drawstring waist and tassels and the black cami would look nice oversized and slouchy tucked into the shorts, paired with the long line crochet fringed waistcoat would give the outfit a festival feel plus it's lightweight for when it's warm and you can layer it up with the denim jacket (again I'd wear it oversized) when it gets cooler in the evening.

Jacket // New Look
Shorts // Topshop
Bag // New Look
Boots // Dr Martens  

Who says festivals need to be all about prints? This simple monochrome outfit is gorgeous I love the top from Topshop it's part of Kendall and Kylie range for Topshop and I think the wrap over, gypsy style and lightweight fabric is great for a festival teamed with distressed black denim shorts, a pair of Dr Martens, a cute fringed tassel bag from New Look that can double up as a backpack and an across body bag then complete the look with a leather jacket for the cooler nights. Just remember to pack a waterproof mac and your all set. I really really love this outfit *heart eye emoji*

Jacket // ASOS
Dress // Topshop
Backpack // New Look
Wellies // New Look

I love oversized denim jackets like this one from ASOS they might cool cover ups for festivals, you can usually pick up jackets like this at the stalls at the festival if your feeling spendy! This printed dress comes complete with pockets making it great for a festivals pair it with these calf length wellies to keep the mud at bay (they are only £17.99) and this cool quirky silver backpack from New Look. I have this backpack you might remember seeing it on my blog at the start at the month, I bought it for festivals as I love the structured shape and it's actually rather roomy.

I hope you like these outfits they've certainly got me in the mood to go festival shopping. Are you going to a festival this year? What's are you planning to wear? Let me know in the comments below.

My Top 20 Festival Tips

Another year, another summer, another festival season to get excited/jealous about. If you are a fan of live music then the chances are high that you'll be attending a festival this year whether it be for a day or a weekend, I am only going to one festival this year (sob) and that's T in the park in July but I'm also going to see Paolo Nutini at Glasgow Summer Sessions.

As festival season has started up again I thought I'd share my festival tips with you. These tips are aimed at any festival goer but are tailored more towards weekends non-campers festival goers - as I've never camped at a festival. You might consider these tips to be basic simple tips but these tips always come in handy for me a self-confessed festival addict and I've learnt from personal experiences.

1. Stay hydrated yup you might have had 14 beers but throw in a bottle of water every now and again to keep yourself hydrated you don't want to ruin the festival for yourself by becoming dehydrated. 

2. Plan your trip this might sound like a bit of a boring one but have a rough plan of what you want to do/see while at the festival. There's so much to do as well as the hundreds of acts to enjoy, there's nothing worse than not seeing the act you were desperate to see. 

3. Think before you wear that playsuit might look cute but you know what's not? Having to spend more time than necessary in and around the portaloos. If you need a hand to get in and out of your outfit to go to the toilet it's not for a festival! You want to feel comfortable, confident and happy in your outfit.

4. Take sunglasses not only do they protect your eyes from the sun, they also hide the under eye bags and stop people from seeing your drunk eyes!

5. Don't take your entire purse a heavy purse will only take up more room and you don't exactly need your Boots advantage card so only take what you need like your ID, money and bank card - I'm not one for taking my bank card but there are ATMs at most festivals. 

6. Have a hands free bag because you'll want your hands for dancing, drinking, eating and waving in the air, you won't want to worry about keeping a hold of your bag. I like backpacks for festivals and there's lots of nice ones out there but the downside is you can't get things in and out that fast. Across body bags are good too! 

7. SPF whatever the weather do yourself a favour -I'm talking for experience - pack and wear SPF everywhere, don't forget your lips! It protects your skin from sunburn and damage even if it doesn't look hot and sunny spending all that time outdoors it's best to protect yourself. 

8. Never wear sandals well of course it's up to you if you want to wear sandals or not but for me it's a definite no, I always opt for boots or willies if it's heavy rain. Festivals can be so dirty with rubbish all over the place plus the crap in and around the portaloos (literally) you don't really want that on your feet. Plus you want something comfy because you going to be on your feet for a long time, my favourite shoes for festivals are my Doc Martens. 

9. Use a SPF lip balm I touched on this earlier in the post, to stop your lips from getting sore, chapped, dry and damaged take a lip balm that contains SPF and don't forget to apply it your lips will thank you for it - talking from personal experience again!

10. Tissues I cannot express how important tissues are, take a truck load because they come in handy. You will need them more so for the portaloos as they never have toilet roll so it's safe to take your own but be warned hide them because when you're standing in the long queue for the toilets and people see you with tissues you'll be pestered by every second person who wants 'just one'!

11. Invest in a waterproof always always always take something waterproof, the weather is so unpredictable here in the UK it's better to be safe than sorry. Something lightweight that can be thrown in your bag and chucked on if it starts to rain, you can buy some nice waterproofs now on the high street. If you want to show off your outfits you can find nice clear see through parkas in the likes of Primark, New Look, Topshop and ASOS. As long as it keeps your dry you'll be grateful because soggy clothes are no fun and will only make you colder.  

12. Take sandwitch bags this sounds strange but resealable sandwich bags are a life saver when there's heavy rain at a festival. Pack a few and put all your valuables in there to stop them getting damaged, the bags are waterproof so it's great for your phones, cameras and tickets!

13. Be Safe look after yourself and the people you go with, if someone's had a bit too much to drink don't let them wander off on their own. If you're splitting up with your mates arrange a meeting point and time, if you're not great with directions use the festivals app or buy a map so you don't get lost.

14. Take a Portable Charger these things are a god send. It keeps your phone charged on the go so you can keep in contact with your friends, keep an eye on the festival app and take photos until your hearts content. Most of them are lightweight and not too bulky so you can charge your phone with ease, it saves you having to stand in the seriously long line to use the overpriced mobile phone charger areas. You can pick up a good portable charger for cheap on amazon.
15. Don't over pack your the one who has to carry your stuff and 3 days with a heavy bag will kill your back and shoulders. I've done my fair share of over packing when it comes to festivals but trust me you don't need a makeup bag packed with every product you own. Pack only what you need; your purse, phone, tickets, tissues, hand sanitizer, SPF, a lip balm, a waterproof jacket/cover up/emergency poncho.

16. Always take a cover up because no matter how glorious a day it is the chances are you'll go through a cold patch. Whether it be a kimono, jumper, hoodie or jacket pack an extra layer that you can chuck on if you get cold.

17. Want to get to the front fast? Go down the sides it'll be much faster than pushing your way through thousands of people. Also don't be that dick that pushes people out the way to get to the front and then leave 10 minutes into the set and have to push out again! 

18. Take hand sanitizer it'll come in so handy for the grotty portaloos. As you probably know portaloos don't come with a sink so hand sanitizer is great for cleaning your hands when you come out of the portaloos as most of them will run out of the supplied hand sanitizer fast. Baby Wipes work just as well and help keep you clean.

19. Explore the festival there's so many things going on at festivals so make the most of it and go and explore it. Check out new bands and unsigned bands, check out the stalls you might pick up something unique, dance away in the dance tent, visit the comedy tent, there's always something going on so if there not an act you want to see try something new.

20. Have a great time you've spent months waiting for the festival to come round, spent a lot of money on your ticket and have probably hyped it up in your head and with your friends so make the most of it and have a great time! Dance the night away, sing till you've lost your voice, soak up the sunshine, get soaked in the rain, make new friends, create new memories just have a brilliant time so what if your covered in mud and soaked by the rain so is everyone else, so embrace the great British festivals and have a wonderful time.
I can't wait for T in the Park, I absolutely love festivals they are an essential part of the summer. What festivals are you going to this year? What are your top festival tips let me know in the comments.

Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation

Last year I discovered Bourjois Colour Corrector Cream and fell in love, then I noticed they had a foundation version and wanted to try it to see if how it faired compared to the CC cream. The Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation comes in 5 shades which are all on the light side so if you have a darker skin tone I don't think this is for you. The foundation comes in a glass bottle with pump dispenser and a plastic lid and on the front of the bottle it explains that the foundation contains 3 correcting pigments; yellow pigments to conceal dark circles, mauve to combat dullness and green to reduce redness. I bought the light shade number 51 'light vanilla' and I wanted to love it but it just didn't float my boat. 
The colour match for my skin tone was good and the foundation applied and blended really well with any makeup brushes I used. I'd say the coverage of this foundation is medium and it did cover my blemishes and under eye circles but my issues with this foundation is with the wear time. I found that as time went on this foundation made my T-zone really oily, come lunchtime where other foundations would still be looking great this one wasn't looking a bit worse for wear. I've used this foundation a lot using different powders to set it to see if that made a difference or to see if it was skin having an off day but still every time I used it I end up with a very oily T-zone and a not great looking foundation after a couple of hours. 
I had such high hopes for this foundation and I wanted to love it, I thought it would be very similar to the Bourjois CC Cream but it wasn't, the CC Cream is miles better! Up until now I've only had positive things to say about Bourjois bases but this one just wasn't for me.

Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette In Streak

Back in April I ordered myself the Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette from Debenehams as you were getting 10% off and I had been thinking about getting myself one for ages. The flushed palette comes in 4 different shades; Naked, Native, Streak and Strip, I decided to buy myself the Streak palette because I was drawn to the coral blush and I read online on various blog posts that Streak was good for people will pale/fair to medium skin tones. The palette contains a bronzer, a highlighter and a blush inside a sturdy compact case that comes with a large mirror all for £22.50.
The bronzer makes up the largest part of the palette, it's a light peachy brown bronzer that is matte but has tiny flecks of gold through it. The highlighter is a peachy frosty highlight and the blush is a neon coral matte blush. All three products are buttery and a dream to blend and can be built up to create the desired look, I really love the highlighter it looks gorgeous over the cheekbones and the blush is buildable so you can create a strong blush or just a flush, the bronzer doubles as a good contour shade.
The Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette in Streak is a safe option for pale and fair skin tones, the colour payoff is excellent and will look gorgeous throughout summer. You can pick the Urban Decay Naked Flushed palettes up for £22.50 and there are 4 shades available.

Real Techniques | Sculpting Set

The latest set from Real Techniques is perfect for people who like to sculpt and highlight their face, at just over £20 the sculpting set contains three brushes, two of which are exclusive to the set.  If you want to create killer contouring or want to expand your makeup brush collection without breaking the bank then the Real Techniques Sculpting Set is for you. The three brushes you get are the sculpting brush, the fan brush and the setting brush, all three brushes are instantly recognisable as Real Techniques and great quality like you expect from Real Techniques.
The Sculpting Brush is designed to slot under your cheekbones and help to easily contour your face, the brush has a wide angle head that is dense yet soft and works great with powders. It fits nicely under my cheekbones and is great at applying product as well as blended it out so you're left with a natural looking contour. The Fan Brush is large fan shaped brush that I love to use to apply highlighter over the top of my cheekbones, it picks up powders well and is great for sweeping off any excess powder. The Setting Brush is small tapered brush that will come in handy for so many things I love it for applying and setting my under eye concealer but it'll come in handy for lots of different things like blending out any hard lines and edges.
Real Techniques offers some of the best affordable brushes you can pick up on the high street and I'm a huge fan of their collections. This latest collection offers 3 brilliant brushes at a reasonable and affordable price, for just over £20 you can grab this set when the sculpting brush alone will cost you around £10, Real Techniques have done it again! The Real Techniques Sculpting Set retails at £20.99

My MAC Lipstick Collection

L-R Viva Glam Gaga 2, Russian Red, Taupe, Honey Love, Vegas Volt, Please Me, Rebel, Velvet Teddy.

L-R Velvet Teddy, Rebel, Please Me, Vegas Volt, Honey Love, Taupe, Russian Red, Viva Glam Gaga 2,
Today I thought I'd share with you my MAC lipstick collection, I'm a huge fan of MAC and seem to find myself drawn to the MAC counter whenever I'm in a beauty hall covering myself in swatches of all the products. Lipsticks are fun and easy way to complete your look and add some colour to your makeup collection and MAC are a brand that have every colour under the sun in a range of different finishes so your bound to find one (or several) that suits you. As you probably already know MAC lipsticks bridge the gap between high end and high street with most MAC lipsticks costing around £15.50 - not cheap but not as expensive as some high end lipsticks. What I love most about MAC lipsticks are the colour pay off

Viva Glam Gaga 2 this lipstick was part of Lady Gagas range for Viva Glam, if you're not familiar with MACs Viva Glam all the profits go to AIDs charity to help raise awareness, support and money for men, women and children with AIDs, so you're not only treating yourself but your doing a good deed. This lipstick is a glossy creamy beige nude, unfortunately I don't think they do it anymore as I couldn't find it to link it.

Russian Red is my go to red I absolutely love it, it's a strong deep, cool blue toned red. It's one of those classic reds that you instantly associate with Hollywood starlets and pin up girls, the formula is matte and it's super long lasting. Russian Red is strong and not for the faint hearted, this is probably my favourite red lipstick.
Rebel is a satin lipstick and is such a unique shade, it's a deep fuchsia berry shade that can be built up to create a stronger look. Rebel is bold and a little vampy that looks darker in the bullet than it does once applied, it has a semi matte finish that has a lovely sheen to it.

Taupe is a lipstick I got by mistake when the girl at the counter got mixed up and gave me this but when I opened it up and saw the colour I bloody loved it and was glad there had been a mix up. Taupe is a brick brown nude with mauve undertones that goes opaque in one swipe, I know it doesn't sound that nice but trust me it really is.

Honey Love is another matte lipstick this time in a light beige nude that has a slight pink undertone throughout, although Honey Love is matte it feels creamy when it glides onto the lips.

Vegas Volt is part of MACs amplified lipsticks it leaves a creamy finish and slight sheen to the lips once applied. The colour is a strong gorgeous pinky, coraly orange that is perfect for summer, it's best for your lips to be in tip top shape when using this lipstick.

Please Me is a muted dusty pink great for an everyday pink lipstick, I love that the pink isn't too bright and girly. Please Me is a matte lipstick.

Velvet Teddy you've probably heard all about Velvet Teddy but if you haven't let me fill you in it's the perfect nude brown made popular by Kylie Jenner. I love this lipstick and have had it for years, luckily before Kylie Jenner put it on everybody's it list so I had no problem trying to get it, Velvet Teddy is more on the pink side that Taupe and I find it to be one of MACs more drying matte lipsticks but I absolutely love the colour.

Tell me what your favourite MAC lipsticks are in the comments below? I'll know I'll add more lipsticks to my collection sometime soon so I'd love to know what colours you like.

Summer Skin Care Ready

Getting summer ready skin can take a lot of TLC so I've picked out some of my favourite products for getting my face and body summer ready. Now I don't fake tan so this is post is all about moisturising and looking after my skin and making me feel more confident throughout summer so keep on reading if you want to see the products that get my skin summer ready. 
Lets start with facial skin care as well as a good moisturiser it's important to protect your skin from getting sun damage I really like Soap and Glory Make Yourself Youthful Sunshield Superfluid SPF 50 £15 because it's lightweight, sinks in fast and evenly plus has really high protection. For my lips I love to use the Lush Lip Scrub £5.50 in mint julips to buff away any dry and dead skin to leave my lips soft and smooth and then I'll use a SPF lip balm, my lip balm of choice is the Carmex Cherry Lip Balm £2.69 because it contains SPF 15 and is super moisturising.  

When it comes to body skin care there are a few products I like to use depending on how much time I have and how my skin is. I use the Superdrug Restoring Skin Care Oil £5.69 on my skin when it's really dehydrated in patches this is a really handy oil that can be used for so many things like dry/dehydrated skin as well as help to minimise stretch marks, uneven skin tone, blemishes and scars you can also use this as a bath oil. The oil sinks into the skin relatively fast and a little goes a long way you really don't need much this is a great dupe for Bio Oil. For a day to day body moisturiser I reach for the Dove Essential Nourishment Body Lotion £4.49 as it sinks in fast and instantly leaves my skin feeling more hydrated, the effects of this moisturiser are long lasting my skin stills feels hydrated, soft and smooth 24 hours after using it. For the rare occasions that we get a hot summers day I like to use The Body Shop Mango Body Sorbet £8 as it's really cooling and refreshing, the lightweight body sorbet has a gel like consistency that absorbs into the skin fast and leaves a lovely smell.  For days when I'm being ultra lazy I use the Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser £ 3.69 because it's a simple, fast and easy way to moisturise. You simply do it in the shower and let the lotion sink into wet skin before rinsing it off and you're good to go, this is such a lazy girl's way to moisturize.

These products help me get my skin summer ready. What are your favourite skin care products for getting your skin summer ready? Let me know in the comments.

Benefit Blush Dallas

I was being a bit naughty and got sucked in to Debenhams up to 25% off at the end of April, after buying myself a few things online I was given a £5 off voucher and thought it would be rude not to spend it (any excuse)! So I picked up a blusher from Benefit and I got 10% off plus the £5 off with my voucher making the blush £16.15 instead of £23.50, still pricey for just a blush but I made a good saving so I didn't grumbled. I spent a good while at the Benefit contour perusing all the different blushes before I decided to buy Dallas.

Dallas is a  blush meets bronzer in a cowgirl inspired box that comes housed in a small square cardboard box that flips open to reveal a small square mirror, a brush and the blush. I love the packaging with the cowgirl on the front it's a fun and cute with just the right amount of gimmick.  My only little niggle is that the blush is a little deep in the box which makes it a little harder to get to, I know that's to allow room for the brush but it's just a little niggle.

The blush itself is a pinky brown with a bit of shimmer and can be used as a blusher or a bronzer. The blush looks more on the brown side in the box that gives a subtle shimmer and a healthy glow when applied. The powder is pigmented but buildable, smooth and easy to blend. I really like this blush it gives a gorgeous bronzy rose flush of colour to the apple of the cheek but can be lightly dusted all over the face for a bronzy glow. The blush gives a natural finish over all and doesn't look false, I really love this blush.

OOTN | The Primark Dress

Dress - Primark
Shoes - Primark
You know what's it's like with Primark sometimes you go in and it's filled with lots of nice things other times you can endlessly search and find nothing. This time however I found this gem of a dress that someone had left hanging on the end of a rail luckily it wasn't in size and I wandered round the shop with it in my arms, I liked it and I couldn't put my infer on why as it's not my usual style.

The dress has a gorgeous graphic flower print and is a mix of navy, black and white. The neckline is racer cut which means one thing a strapless bra which is a bit daunting for me as I'm rather busty but actually I was surprised how supported I felt in the dress, credit to the bra but also a little bit to the dress as the fit is so nice. The quality is great for £13 it feels and looks much more expensive, my friends actually thought it was from River Island. I wore this for my friend Ruths birthday night out but this dress could also work for a wedding, the length is a good length not too long but not so short that your scared to move encase you flash something! Unfortunately the print of the dress doesn't photograph as gorgeous as it actually is which is a shame.

So I think I've raved about this dress enough for someone who at first wasn't sure of it. I'm so glad I bought it and thank you to the person who dumped it at the end of a rail!
