prom wear

It's that time of year! I know it's 2 months in advance for all the British school proms, but I know for a fact girls will be looking for dresses and getting prepared for it as soon as right now.

Now my prom is a distant memory, back 4 years ago now, but I definitely remember the army-like preparation for the big day, and the scoping of dozens of dress shops and accessory shops! Here's a nostalgia filled photo of my lovely prom day (June 2010)

Now, as a typical girl, I love a good shopping spree, but I remember for a fact the pain of finding a dress that fitted properly, the only reason I could wear this one was because we had it altered (at a hefty fee, unfortunately) as there seemed to be no dresses anywhere in my size (pretty much a 4 at that time)

I wish I had the option and idea to order my prom dress online, custom made, with my precise measurements able to be shipped directly to me.

There are many website able to do this now adays, and a website I have fallen in love with, firstly because of their custom sizing option, and also for their fabulous range and variety of beautiful prom dresses (they also sell wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses, which are also stunning!), is Miss Wedding Wear, they sell wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, prom dresses and various other event dresses. Here are some of my favourite prom dresses, they are also really reasonably priced, the amount of girls in my year at school who'd spent upwards of £400 on their prom dress, and most of these beautiful pieces retail at less than £100, I think they're stunning and affordable, and hopefully will help you beautiful girls to look back on your prom with happy memories!

And all these beautiful pieces (plus another 58 pages of other beauties!) also come in any colour imaginable, they also come in standard sizes, or in custom made-to-measure sizes.

So, if you're struggling to pick the perfect dress for the big day, take a little visit to Miss Wedding Wear and pick from a gigantic range of various styles, lengths and colours, and make prom a wonderful day to remember, for an affordable price!

momma's and beverages

t-shirt: primark, mom jeans: river island

Hola kids! So I bought a lovely new outfit today! The weather is so lushous at the moment, so I needed a slightly more fitting outfit for the climate, so ta dah! 

Now I've been debating on Mom jeans for a while now, I went off the idea when I tried on a less that flattering pair in Republic a few months back, but I spied these beauties in River Island and thought I'd give them a second chance. Thank goodness I did because I am officially in love! They are so comfy and the light, slightly acid wash colour is perfect for this kind of weather. Highly recommend these, at £40 they are a stretch money wise, but they come with a thick belt, and they are very well made so it's really worth it.

I thought this tee was adorable, and it's a nice fit on me, so I bought it. Pretty simple explanation for that one really.

Hope everyone is enjoying their easter, and hope the weather is as wonderful where you are, like it is here in London!

childs plaid

jumper: gap, skirt: new look (generation 915), shoes: next

As you fellow student may know, it was loan day earlier this week, and of course I may have spent a fair bit on some fabulous new purchases! Included in this spree was this beautiful skirt and these amazing shoes.
The blue version of this jumper was featured in an earlier post, so it's identical to that one bar the colour, extra comfy, it's been washed a fair few times and it's still kept it's shape and size, so no complaints there!
Now, on to the wonderfulness of this skirt, as you can tell by the way I'm gushing, I'm pretty besotted with it. And who can blame me? I've taken to shopping in the Generation 915 collection in New Look, I know it's technically the kiddies section, but come on! A piece this beautiful shouldn't have an age limit, well not to me anyway. And because it's a kids item, the price was a little cheaper than it would have been in the regular adult range, it is so comfy, also very flattering and fits very well, doesn't bunch up and I'm not forever adjusting it, which I've had a problem with mainly with skirts. So I also cannot complain about this one!
And now the best til last I feel, these wonderful shoes, I had a similar pair a few years back from New Look, but unfortunately I wore the hell out of them, and they were unrecognisable after about 3/4 months of wear, so I was determined to find a decent, well made and sturdy pair of flats like this. And hey presto, I found the perfect pair in Next, I hadn't had chance to wear them in before I went out in them today, but to be honest I really didn't need to, these are the comfiest things, and so cute with the entire ensemble.

Loving my easter break, lots of work and lots of family time, couldn't ask for more! Hope everyone's enjoying the break if it's started for you, if not, have a lovely week!
