Valentine's OOTN

So I'm running late with my nail post this week (again) because I have an interview tomorrow and I want to keep my nails neutral just in case.. I'll be doing the next part of the challenge as soon as I get home so look out for that sometime tomorrow evening!

Anyway, I am feeling brave today and thought I'd show you what I wore for Valentine's =) unfortunately a lot of the pictures are too dark.. But a couple came out ok and though I look pretty derpy you can see my gorgeous dress!

Valentine's this year had to wait a day because the Mr and I live in different counties at the moment and see each other at weekends. We went for a lovely Thai meal (I loooveeee Thai food!) and I used it as an excuse to dress up.

Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Cardigan H&M
Tights: Primark
Shoes: Hush Puppies
Bag: New Look

I love this dress. I was very naughty and shouldn't have bought it but at least it was in the sale. I got it the previous weekend having vowed not to buy anything but I couldn't resist it. It's covered in freaking bunnies!! I couldn't just leave it in the shop now could I!?

It was £65 down to £30 and I got 25% Student discount on top of that (yay for student boyfriends!)  so I got it for £22.50 which is a bargain in my opinion. I love it so much, the shape is very flattering and though I usually buy size 10 (they didn't have any left) the 8 fits me just fine. In fact, i think it is better because I have tried 10's on in DP before and the band around the waist gaped so I didn't purchase.. No gaping here! Nice and snug =) I don't have any other dresses in this shape and I think that might have to change. I love the sheer material at the top, it allows for a sweetheart neckline without it being or feeling too revealing. Oh and did I mention THE BUNNIES!!

Here is my eye makeup.. I was trying something new using my other naughty Illamasqua sale purchase (I'm a sucker for sales) which I'll show you sometime. I need to practise.. It looked a lot better in person. The light isn't great and my phone camera isn't ideal. Remind me to save for a proper camera please.

Urban Decay: Eyeshadow Primer Potion (now owned by L'Oreal and therefore no longer CF)
Sinful Colours: Sha Sha Pink (blush but I used it as a shadow)
Illamasqua: Savage (shadow)
Illamasqua: Paint (pencil)
Illamasqua: Hype (shadow)
Sleek: Ink Pot (gel Liner)

I love yellow and purple! And the combination made my blue eyes pop which was welcome =)  I did wear a lipstick but it wore off (I took the pictures at the end of the night) so I'll do that in a separate post!

Well that was different! I hope you liked this post, do let me know!
