Cream lace and coral lips...

Wow. What a weekend! I spent this weekend in Birmingham with a group of lovely ladies drinking, dancing and having fun and I had the most amazing time. #bloggersinbrum definitely needs to become a regular thing! I bought this dress yesterday in Forever 21 and it was perfect for a lazy Sunday after a night out!  I have never bought anything from Forever 21 before, despite having visited several times as I just find the Birmingham store massively overwhelming. Apparently they are downsizing it slightly and reorganising it so hopefully it will be easier to find my way around, there are plenty of gems in amongst the rails though, you just have to be patient enough to search! 

Dress: Forever 21, bralet [under dress]: Accessorize shoes: Office, blazer: Tesco
 I have been looking for a replacement for my white H&M summer dress for a while now and after some gentle persuasion yesterday, I bought this one. I love the colour and the shape of it, despite it reminding me of my favourite nightie, and I think the looser shape will make it perfect for holiday...


The lace detail on this is absolutely stunning, and I love the fact it continues down the sleeve too, I have been really drawn to things with sleeves recently so this was a big draw for me...


Plus, it has buttons down the back! This is definitely one of those dresses that I will end up wearing back to front as the detailing is just so pretty, I have been doing this a lot recently with some lower cut tops and dresses, just having the slightly higher neckline makes them infinitely more wearable and the detail on this makes it an equally attractive candidate!


Another day, another Max Factor lipstain, this one in a bright punchy coral (number 07) to add some colour to an otherwise pale outfit...


I am dreading the photos from last night appearing (no-one needs to have my Dad dancing revealed in all its glory!) but I had such an amazing time and I can't wait to see Eloise, Claire, Sarah, Gemma, Gem, Emma, Rebecca, Char, Alex, Sian and Annabel again very soon. 

Where have you found unexpected treasures recently? Who have you been partying with recently?

The dress is cute. I just did some state-side F21-ing and I'm convinced it's better over there!

Gem said...

it looked beautiful on you! f21 is too big and I barely took in half of the jewellery there. There are hundreds of pages to scroll through online too.
Had the best time this weekend :) xxx

Hayley said...

That's such a gorgeous dress! It really suits you and I agree about wearing it back to front, I think it will look great both ways :)
Glad you had a good time in Birmingham, I wish I could have come.. hopefully I won't be ill next time :) xx

This dress is SO pretty, I love the batwing sleeves and the lace detail. That's such a good idea to wear it back to front as well, I'll have to steal that idea I think!
This is a much nicer outfit than my usual 'lazy Sunday' uniform of a hoody and leggings haha! x

Love this dress, I live anything creamy & lacy, so this is right up my street too. And coral lips & nails are a fav too. You look gorgeous.

i love buttons on dress, so pretty. Love the shoes as well, perfect for a night out. I need to find my go-to night out outfits!

Alex said...

I'm taking personal credit for this one, haha! Although I'm not convinced my persuasion was of the gentle variety...more of the "BUY IT, BUY IT, IT'S LOVELY" type.

Arabella said...

You are too cute! I just have to follow you! :D x

Roisin Elizabeth Keats said...

This dress is amazing! So pretty, and easy to wear but still looks like you've made an effort - winner all round!
