Birthday Suit

It was my birthday yesterday. 21 again! Ho ho ho. It was a pretty hectic day in the end with lots of errands to run and things to do. Sob story aside, it was a lovely day and I was thoroughly spoilt by friends and family (highlights include a tripod for my camera and not one, but two copies of Mick Foley's autobiography....I think there was an Amazon Wishlist mix up there). 

I had been lusting after this dress from Next for a lonnnnnnnnnng time. Well, since February anyway- and that's a long time! The only problem was that it was £69 and almost every size was sold out instantly. I decided to pop onto eBay to have a look and there it was, brand new with tags and 30 quid cheaper. Wooooooooooot. 

I'm wearing tights underneath this because the underskirt is quite short and I wasn't feeling brave. Other than that there is nothing I don't love about this dress! Perfect for a night of cocktails and dancing.

Dress: Next (via eBay)
Leopard print pumps: Simply Be
Chain: River Island

If you were interested there do seem to be quite a few of these on eBay and they go up to a size 26. I sized up in this (I always do in Next clothing) and it was the right thing to do as there's not much stretch to it. 

Now where's that hangover food....
