Glitter and Studs

Dress (DIY'd) - Dorothy Perkins 
Jumper - Dorothy Perkins 

Again this was a struggle with the light hence the dramatic difference in lighting although it won't help that this outfit is almost entirely black. I wanted a black studded collar shirt dress but all the dresses I liked were either too expensive or too small. After I had bought this dress when it went on sale and it did not occur to me until much later that I should have bought the black version too to put studs on it. By the time I had thought of that the dresses went down to a fiver and none were left in my size in black but there was a grey one. I bought the grey dress and some black dye and dyed it. It's a much more charcoal black colour which I think I prefer. I then ordered studs off Ebay and put them on the collar. It was simple enough but it was painful on my thumb and you have to push the studs through the fabric and I did this 50 times in one night! I had a numb thumb the next day. 

 Boots - New Look 
Socks - Topshop 

I loved these boots as soon as I saw them but I did not think that boots out of New look were worth £24.99 but I got these for Christmas as they went down to half off before Christmas. Sometimes it is worth holding out! The socks were a bad idea as they kept falling down and also cause my feet to slide about inside them. I seem to need insoles in all my shoes I wear with tights to combat this. I don't think these boots will last forever or even a year or two but who cares when they are glittery!

I thought I would include this cupcake from my favourite place in town, The Daisy Cupcake Cafe. If you follow me on Instagram (link to the right) then you might be able to tell that I am a regular in there ;) Yesterday they were giving away free cupcakes and my boyfriend ran down just as they flipped the sign to get the last one, I at this time did not even know about the freebies. This is a strawberry one and I do love how it looks like it has ears, adorable! I am now sad I've eaten the cupcake now as it was very tasty and I want more!


  1. I absolutely love your boots and that cupcake looks amazing! <3
