Hey everyone, how are you all? Hope you've had a decent start back at work after the Christmas holidays? As you may be aware it was my birthday on Monday and I did a quick post about what I was up to etc. I thought it would be a good idea this year to try and do a few more fashion related posts. So, as I booked half a day off work, I managed to get some outfit photo's taken in some decent lighting! As you can tell, I'm still not very confident with taking full length photo's for outfit posts, but I don't think they've come out too badly. Not to mention, I don't have a blank wall anywhere in my house to take photo's against, so in the living room next to the Christmas Tree will have to do for now haha.

I had bought this dress from Primark in the January sales for just £5! It was reduced from £13. I wasn't too sure about it at first but my mom said she liked it, and they had my size (a size 12 to be precise) for a change, so I thought "for a fiver, why not?" and I actually really like it. I love the Skater styling, the length is decent and the material is quite weighty so it doesn't blow up in the windy weather. I also really like the black leather look sleeves too, which make my arms look thinner, goody! I just teamed it up with some black tights and black lace look dolly shoes, both also from Primark. I did have my hair down at first for work, but then decided to tie it up in a bun to go out on the night, as the weather was rainy and windy, eurgh! 

For my makeup I used:
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation - 54 Medium Beige.
Natural Collection Loose Powder - Warm Translucent (Applied with Real Techniques Buffing Brush)
VIVO Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette - Unprotected
TOPSHOP Kohl Eyeliner Pencil - Coal
MUA Mosaic Bronzer - Natural Glow
Revlon Kissable Balm Stain - Lovesick 20

Hope you enjoyed this post, something a little different from the usual anyway :) I will have a birthday haul post up soon too as some of you requested in the comments on my last post.
Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes too, it means a lot!
