Wam Bam Thank You Mam

I suppose this post is a little bit more personal than usual because it's about my BFF! We are absolute chalk and cheese, but we both have a love of Sophie Ellis Bextor that can never be tamed. NEVER. 

His birthday is today so we went out last night to celebrate. He fancied doing something a little different this year, so we went to Wam Bam Club, a burlesque club in Piccadilly. I have to say, I wasn't sure what it was going to be like, but the show was fantastic. All of the performers were amazing, from the dancing to the acrobatics to Tina Turner Tea Lady (a highlight for me was 'Golden Pie'). The only downside was how incredibly expensive the bar was. When we arrived two of our friends had already purchased drinks: two Jack Daniels and Cokes that came to.....£24. By the end of the night I'd convinced myself that £8.50 for a small glass of wine was actually a bargain! 

I decided to wear my ASOS Curve dress. It's something a little different from me, mainly because it shows off my arms which I'm quite self conscious about. However, it made me feel really good and I liked standing out in the bright pattern. I wore it with my faboosh Joanna Hope ankle boots from Marisota which I love. Admittedly by the end of the night my feet were dying, but then I had been standing up and dancing for about four hours! 

Dress: ASOS Curve bodycon dress in tribal print
Necklace: Gold chain from H&M- old, but they have some great jewellery in at the mo. 
Boots: Joanna Hope 'trouser shoes'

My sister wore a gorgeous H&M red jersey dress. Honestly it was so nice that people came up to ask her where she got it from! I can't find a photo of it online, but I think I'm going to go out and get one for myself so watch this space!
