This dress was an impulse purchase a little while ago but I have only just got round to wearing it. I wore it on my last day at work before I was off for my birthday and felt like a 1960s secretary for the whole day (although thankfully without the institutionalised sexism!) I really like the camel/caramel colour with the cream- it felt like a really classic combination but the cut of the dress helps it to feel more modern. I look weirdly tanned in all of these pictures, I guess I chose the wrong shade of nude tights! ;)

I have been trying to experiment more with my make up recently (you saw how much I love my new liquid eyeliner!) and I have been trying to wear more neutral make-up recently. I haven't quite mastered that 'no make-up, make-up' yet but once my skin clears up, I am hoping to wheel out my Nars Sheer Matte foundation again.
The best bit about this dress is how it looks like a skirt and a top. This more generous cut also allows for wriggle room when eating tons of birthday food (ahem). I love fitted dresses for work and it is so nice to have one that works better with flats than heels! I imagine this will be my go to dress for when I have meetings in London, you can't wear heels when running across the city!
However many tutorials I watch, I will never be able to master the art of a beehive but tumbling curls and some volume at the crown is my (much easier) version, no backcombing required here!
Do you know of any good YouTube hair tutorials?
