BLACK LACED GOTH

Hellooo Kitties,

I have no life at the moment, doing work all day every day with no time to play, boooo :( Although I do have a few events booked up including Mark Knight and the Skreamizm event at XOYO in March so at least that's something to look forward to! It's also my 21st next month so i'm sure i'll get up to something messy for that!

I've never done a post like this before, and I feel like a bond girl or something from one of those iconic films! I was approached by Edressy.com who sell an absolutely huge selection of prom style, wedding and party dresses to select a made to measure dress. It was really difficult to choose but in the end picked out this quite simple and plain black high necked dress with beautiful lace detailing. I personally hate the classic nipped in waist and huge bottom princess dresses that everybody seems to wear these days and much preferred this more classic style. It fits really well because I sent them my measurements and now i'm just looking for an event to wear it to! It's weird seeing me in something like this as it's so conservative and doesn't involve any ripped tights or acid washed denim. However I did manage to grunge it up a little bit with my purpley hair and dark lipstick, ha.  















Dress - c/o Edressy / Necklace - Topshop £3 sale / Eyelashes - c/o Undercover Glamour  / Lita Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell £120 / Lips bag - Lulu Guinness £20 / Arm cuff - Topshop £3 sale

I haven't got a chance to wear this Lulu Guinness bag as of yet, but thought it went really well with this dress. I interned at Lulu Guinness for a few months in the summer and it was really fun and great experience. If you want to read more there's a post here I wrote. I was lucky enough to be there when they had their sample sale and managed to get the absolutely AMAZING dark red vintage style lips clutch which is literally every girl's dream, I couldn't believe my luck when I saw it, all the Lulu Guinness bags are so beautiful.

Undercover Glamour kindly sent me a few pieces to review including these Katy Perry false eyelashes i'm wearing. I particularly love these ones as they are double layer and look a lot more dramatic! For the night they are great and really stand out but for the day they are a little to over the top in my opinion!

Additionally to this Undercover Glamour also sent me these padded knickers which have little implants in the bum to give you more of a figure eight shape (so fun). It's only subtle but I found works quite well, especially under long prom like dresses like i'm wearing above. They are only £8.99 so if you've a little bum then are definitely worth a buy - bare in mind they come up really really small!

What do you think of the dress?
