A graduation outfit

 Dress - Red Herring 
Cardigan - Dorothy Perkins 
Shoes - Schu
Last Friday, (November 30th), was my boyfriend Raymond's graduation and I thought I do a short post on what I wore seeing as I wrote a post about finding a new dress for it. I wasn't feeling a 100% hence the odd expressions in both photos but the last photo was the only near enough full length photo that was taken that I am. I forgot that the uni's colour was red and didn't wear the red to match, I wanted to wear my gold sparkly cardigan but with glittery shoes it felt abit too much for daytime and my red cardigan is warmer! There are more photos of him as it was a day to make him feel special. I am proud of him for sticking at uni :)

The dress was on offer and I got it for £28. I liked the gold studs on it but something wasn't right with it and after a while I decided to take the belt off and it looked so much better. The belt looks different in this photo, but in reality it is a very cheap belt and the gold colour made the dress look cheap even though it is priced at £38! The bottom half of the dress fitted nicely but the top half seemed too big and made it hang too low for me. My mum worked some magic and added acouple of stitches to stop gaping at the front and back as well as under the arms. I still decided to wear a top underneath cause it was cold and just to cover up abit more for daytime. Below is a stock photo of my shoes I wore, I forgot to take a photo of them on. I got them back in July in the Schuh sale with some money I got given for my graduation.

I probably won't be posting very often upto christmas anyway, as now I am working two jobs! One is in a shop and one as a followspot volunteer for the pantomime at the local theatre that is re-opening after being shut for nearly 5 years. Today has been my first day off for 7 days! Hope everyone managed to enjoy their weekend.
