so, firstly, apologies are in order. i haven't blogged for what feels like forever. i'm back at uni in my third year, and i'm trying to work out a routine which allows me to blog and do the mountain of work that comes with this year! so - let's start again. i'm louisa, and i run fashion fumblings.
the weekend that just passed was my boyfriend's 21st birthday - which naturally put a lot of pressure on me to look good. self centered, but very very true. we were going out in manchester on a saturday night, which is notoriously dressy - something i don't do very often. panicking, i turned to the lovely people at missguided, as if you want an amazing party dress you should most definitely go there first. i was sent this gorgeous black dress and A-FREAKING-MAZING heels, and they did the job absolutely perfectly.
i was drawn to the dress as it was black, ofc. i also loved it as it reminded me of the infamous marilyn monroe white dress, and looked super flattering. i loved it on, my smallest part is my waist so i wanted to bring that in whilst skimming over my bigger bits. i think the key to this dress is the low cut nature of it. the front was gorgeous as it dropped down, and i'm a sucker for a low back so this was perfect. i felt really dressy, especially as i got a cheeky spray tan to make me feel like i'd been on holiday!
now. the shoes. my god, the shoes. they are ridiculously tall, and at first i worried that i would be taller than my bf (not a problem, in the end!!) but it was genuine love at first sight. they remind me of topshop heels, but at less than half the price - absolute bargain. i put them on at 7pm, and took them off at 5am... and they didn't hurt AT ALL. seriously. it was an absolute miracle, baring in mind i walked half way across manchester. i would recommend these heels SO MUCH TO ALL OF YOU. buy them before it's too late!
i promise more posts are coming, and a whole blog redesign! stay tuned, until next time xo
