The Liebster Award.

Been off the blog for a while as have been a good student and focusing on my 5 assignments!! But after log gin on to my surprise aleatherista had nominated me for the liebster award, it literally made my life! Haven’t long been on the blog scene but seriously am in love with it, sharing my passion for fashion with others who feel the same! So first of all thank you so much aleatherista for my nomination, i absolutely love your blog!

This works like a chain letter, from one blogger to another blogger, and on and on… The goal of this award is to highlight blogs with fewer than 200 followers that are up and coming. Encouraging people to visit blogs that others enjoy seems like a great initiative. Liebster means “dearest” in German and this award was started by a German blogspot blogger in 2010. The rules for the award are pretty straightforward:

1. Post eleven facts about yourself
2. Answer the questions from the person who nominated you
3. Invent eleven questions to ask the people you have nominated for the award
4. Choose eleven people (with fewer than 200 followers) to nominate for the award and link to them in your post
5. Go to their blog and tell them

Wedding bells are ringing!

I can hear the bells ringing and me screaming, I DONT KNOW WHAT TO WEAR! My sister recently got married and said i must wear a very nice outfit, no ifs or buts, i have to get something new and beautiful. I usually love challenges like this, by my sister is a very hard woman to please!

I started off by having a quick look online, but only at shops where i could then go and try things on, i hate ordering online when i don’t know what it will look like on me! I chose shops which were all located in Birmingham, started off with Reiss, FCUK and Selfridges, these of course gave me millions of choices… which possibly made it harder.

I decided my favourite was a gorgeous dress in a mix of orange colours (told you i was obsessed with orange!), now i just had to pray they had it in store. Arriving in Birmingham i ran straight to FCUK, not taking any chances on missing out on the last one by stopping in any other shops! Unfortunately though i did miss it, the last one was sold the day before.. in my size.

I thought it was all over, no chance in getting the dress i loved and no chance in me agreeing on a different one. The shop assistant did go on to tell me they have one… in London… now i was heading to London, but it was the weekend before the wedding, do i risk it? YES! This is the dress of my dreams, for a short period of time anyway! After getting to London, thinking there would be one French Connection shop i was wrong there was 3! So i spent the day running around London finding each shop, actually a very good way to go sight seeing too! Being my luck it was the last shop i went to that had it, but i can’t complain as i was in my size and they did 15% student discount, my luck was in!

Dress:  French Connection £195 (£165.75 with student discount)

Shoes: New Look £22

Purse: Marc Jacobs £180

Worn this dress a few more times after the wedding too for daytime meals and also nights out, its perfect for any occasion!

The luck was in for my sister too, it was a beautiful sunny day and the wedding was amazing! Her and her husband looked gorgeous (she was dressed head to toe in gucci) and it was a wonderful ceremony!

Happy celebrations!
