Moody florals...

My love for Warehouse is well-documented on this blog and I'll keep shopping there as long as they keep making cute dresses like this! It took me a while to track this dress down instore but I finally managed it and I couldn't have been happier. I love how dramatic this whole outfit is too. Long sleeves are not usually my first choice but I've needed them with the weather being so rubbish and when they are as fun as these, it's hard to be mad! ;)

Dress: Warehouse, tights: John Lewis, shoes: c/o George at ASDA
I got this amazing Nars gift set for Christmas and I absolutely love the different red shades in it. It includes the (limited edition) velvet lipliner in Misdemeanor, a lipstick in Flamenco and the velvet matte lip pencil in Mysterious Red and I couldn't be happier with the selection. I am a big fan of red lipstick and these Nars shades apply like a dream. I was looking particularly pasty pale here so the lipstick looks particularly bold. My hair has grown a lot since we took these pictures but I can't decide how long to let it go as I like how it looks here!

A better look at that awesome floral print... I know florals are hardly groundbreaking but these botanical ones are at least more interesting than your usual.

I think the length of this would be slightly indecent with nude tights so I pulled out my trusty velvet tights to make it a bit more appropriate. Paired with my beloved  heeled shoes they also help to make my less-than-willowy legs look slightly longer too which is never a bad thing!

Help a gal out, how long should I keep my hair?!

What a gorgeous dress! I love the botanical print and that it has proper long sleeves. I might have to browse the Warehouse website now!
