Marlene & Me - A vintage trouser outfit post.

 I had the pleasure of being taken to the lovely World Service in Nottingham last weekend for a belated 21st celebration. It's got one of those awkward smart casual dress codes, wear jeans and you'll be frowned at but wear a cocktail dress and you'll be overdressed.

In the end , and I can tell you it was a rather lengthy process, I chose an outfit inspired by the ever stylish marlene Dietrich. Famous for wearing a trouser suit and looking damn good whilst doing it !
I do adore the trousers I have on here, however every time i look at these pictures it just makes me think how badly I need to take them up. Short legs. *grumblegrumble*

The trousers I'm wearing here were bought two seasons ago in Primark for about £8
The white satin blouse was stolen from the Darlings Vintage shop. You can shop for similar ones HERE
The necklace was £10 on a Spitalfields market stall. 

                                                              Shoes are New look.
The Fur Jacket (I know, I know. Naughty me) is also from the Darlings Vintage Shop. 

I wish you could see me hair better. It actually looked nice for a change.
I'm going to try and do lots more outfit post so do make sure you sign up to follow the blog. I promise you wont regret it !

My Best Friends Wedding

Last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited to the wedding of two of my closest friends. I am a little ashamed to say that this was my first ever wedding. I've never even been to a reception, let alone be a bridesmaid. I was a really deprived child! I was advised to pack a hanky and oh boy did I need it. I sobbed like a little girl the whole way through. Due to this I am never going to another wedding, they really are far to emotional for me.

The wedding was black and gold themed as they met on the UK cheer squad Unity All Stars.

Either way it was a great excuse for me to roll out a vintage dress. Due to sickness the planned dress didn't fit so I ended up raiding the shop for this beauty by Blanes.

With the girls from my cheer squad.

Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Williams !
