I have a brand new dress that I am smitten with. I’ve been waiting for just the right day to wear it for the first time. Today, the sun is shining, it’s lovely and warm, and I wanted to look like a faerie princess. So I’ve decided that today is the day my new dress makes its’ debut.
I am wearing:
– White satin dress (thrifted)
– Black corset belt
– Turquoise earrings (made by my aunt)
– Black and gold heavy bangle
– Black and gold platform shoes from Nova
– Amethyst ring
I am really happy with this dress. It is so slinky and feels gorgeous against my skin. The skirt flips a little as I walk, and I feel so pretty. When I first saw this dress, I fell head over heels in love with it. I wasn’t sure whether it would fit, and so I waited for a change room. The store only had two changing rooms, and the people in them were taking forever. The salesgirl kept apologising over and over. I bought several other items from this store, and in the end, the girl gave me this dress for free, to make up for me waiting so long! I couldn’t believe it! It was a really kind gesture, especially since I really didn’t mind waiting all that time. I was just shopping on a lazy Sunday afternoon, and I had all the time in the world. I will certainly head back to that store in the near future.
I’ve gone with very natural makeup today, so as not to look too overdressed. I used a mineral foundation powder, a light dusting of pinky-peach blush, a little bit of pink/gold eyeshadow, a lip stain and a liberal dusting of silver shimmer powder. I’ve also added a tiny flower sticker to my cheek, for funsies.
It’s been a very busy week. It’s really starting to sink in for me that this is my second last week of university ever. My life is about to start changing drastically, and I’m not sure if I’m ready for that. I have adored my time at uni, and I am a bit apprehensive about it coming to a close. I finished my clinical placement yesterday, which was very sad. I learned so much in just twelve weeks, and I had really gotten attached to some of my clients. Oh well, I know they are in safe hands and all will be well.
