Had a girly day with my momma at the Bullring during this week and was on the hunt to find a nice dress to wear to my friend's 21st this Saturday. I get asked quite often what I would wear to formal events and I have to admit I usually avoid long/ fitted dresses and go for the cute short option. However, I found this nude fitted origami style dress in Topshop and instantly fell in love. The fit is perfect with the low cut neckline and tight midi length which is a shape I have never worn before. It also looks really nice against tanned skin so I have to make the most of it whilst my tan lasts! I was extremely naughty and bought these studded Kurt Geiger heels to go with it. I always struggle walking in open-foot heels and usually wear a wedge/ boot style shoe but these fit like a glove so my feet don't slip out. They are also the kind of heel which will go with so many outfits and can be worn during any month of the year. 

I also picked up this racer-front style nude crop top and crazy patterned leggings from the American Apparel section in Selfridges. I'd been looking for some patterned leggings and was really drawn to these, I've already worn them 3 times so they were a good investment. I have been so spoilt this week, my mom also bought me the new iPad 3 so I bought this adorable glitter bow case from Ted Baker to keep it from getting scratched. I never used to see the point of iPads but now I can't believe how I lived without one, plus it will come in useful when travelling on the tubes when I move to London soon. Lastly, I needed a new foundation so picked up the new YSL touché éclat which I've heard rave reviews about. I haven't actually tried it out yet as I'm still using the last few blobs out of my Mac foundation so I'll let you know what it's like once I have.
