A night out

Yay for terrible posing! Haha.

This was my outfit from a party on Saturday. I thought this gold brocade dress would be perfect for the occasion! I really like its 60s shift dress shape. It was bought on eBay for about £10 but it was originally from Warehouse. I shortened it a bit because the original clearly wasn't designed for short people like me haha. Unfortunately its now a little bit too short and the whole dress lifts up if I put my arms in the air (as you do).

These are the highest heels I own and they were causing me a fair bit of pain by the end of the night. Luckily all the girls were in the same boat! I really don't know how people manage to wear heels all day every day, but I have great respect for those who can. Time to train my feet up a bit?


I'm working on a tutorial on how to make the skirt in my previous post, so it should be up soon :D.

Looking gorgeous as always, Sadie! I'd quite like to use you in a photoshoot when I'm home for Christmas, how would you feel about that? don't worry, I wouldn't be chucking you outside in a skimpy dress :) Looking forward to your skirt tutorial, I'm desperate to start making some clothes for myself but I just don't know where to start! x

I love the brocade! I've totally been wanting a dress like that. I also really like how it coordinates with the colors of the plants in the background, haha :)

Aw you look good! And lol, that is one of the reasons why I don't post outfit pictures as much anymore, I look so awkward posing :P

Well, simply buy even higher heels, walk around until your feet hurt ;)
After this the shoes on the picture will be more than comfortable...
