OOTD: have a little faith

August 30, 2010

I got this dress from Forever 21/Faith 21 a couple of months ago but didn't wear it until today. It was the first dress I purchased from the Faith 21 collection so I wasn't too sure about sizing and tried to base it off the size chart. I ordered it in a 1x and it fits perfectly everywhere except right under the bust where its a little tight. I think the sweetheart neckline (which is incredibly flattering) may help distract from that a little though! I adore the detail on the sleeves too. At $24.95 (including a belt) I think it was a steal!

Dress: Faith 21 *** Belt: Faith 21 *** Bracelets: Forever 21 *** Shoes: Dunnes

Remember these nude shoes? The shoes in this outfit are the same ones but in black! I loved them so much I bought both colors. I wish I had purchased the grey and brown pairs too, they are comfiest shoes in the world.

My legs are looking a little paler than my face at the minute, it's not *too* noticeable in person but still enough for it to bother me! I'm all of out my usual MAC foundation (I wear it in shade NC15) so I have been using an old bottle of NW15 which makes me a little orange! Its not too fun being pale when it comes to matching your make-up to your skin, I can never find a shade that's just right!


Tomorrow is an exciting day for me! I'm going to see these boys perform:

(They are the band "Blink 182" for anyone who didn't know!)
I have been a fan since I was about 10 years old (which is half of my life, eek!) so I am really excited about their reunion and seeing them perform again. Their last ever concert before "the breakup" was here in Ireland and we're all glad to welcome them back again!
They are playing at the O2 and the concert is completely sold out so there will be about 15,000 people at the venue!
I'm not planning on wearing anything fancy to the concert. I'm thinking maybe a pink leopard print tulip skirt, oversized band tshirt and leather jacket. I'm not going to wear any jewelery either, which i'll feel very bare without! But I plan on jumping around quite a bit and I don't want to hit someone in the face with my jewelery!

See you all in a few days!

xoxo

  6. You look lovely :)

    I'm terrible for buying things I like in all the available colours. I do it with tops all the time. Someone will say "I like your top" & I'll be like, "Thanks! I've also got it in navy, black, cream, grey, purple, blue.." Tis ridiculous! But hey, if you know something works for you then why not!?

    My friend was ever so excited last night about seeing Blink 182 at Reading Festival - she kept texting me a countdown to when they were on stage.. Enjoy!
