and we just want to sleep.

This little outfit is what I wore on Wednesday when I saw my absolute favourite band, Brand New, for the second time in a week. I saw them in Manchester last week and I saw them at the O2 in Birmingham on Wednesday and it was just incredible. I was up in the balcony so I got to see everything and I was just so mesmerised and happy to be there, and just massively appreciative of the band - I'm all gushy about them now! I've loved them for almost a decade now and I pretty much listen to them exclusively (note the majority of my post titles...!) I'm absolutely terrified they're going to announce that they're over at the end of this tour (tonight I think) because they didn't play any new songs and they haven't had a new album for three years. I think I've seen them 6/7 times now, they are just incredible live. I think I've typed too much about this...

On to the primary (and only) focus of this blog, my outfit. This gorgeous dress is by one of the many brands at MeeMee.com. I was introduced to this website by El (click for her tumblr which has some of her incredible styling on!) and it wasn't long before I'd put in an order. They stock loads of different brands, tonnes which I'd never heard of before, and are soon going to have Mink Pink on there (an absolute favourite of mine), they just started stocking Finders Keepers and I really love this playsuit by Motel. Do not go on this website if you're poor like me! Anyway, I really love the shape of this dress, and because of the fully lace top half you can wear it a few different ways and make the dress completely unique. I've tried it with a nude bralet and a black bralet (like I've worn here) but you could put a strapless bra with it like the team at MeeMee styled it, or I think you could play with some colour like a gorgeous deep purple, plum or crimson bra/bralet (braletbraletbralet) As always, I teamed it with my trusty studded belt - my primark ones I've had for years are starting to fall apart so I had to invest in this little number; at £22 it was a lot steeper than my £1 efforts!

I also have a little story about this coat! I saw it on the 'last chance to buy' rail around the time a lot of coats had gone in the sale in the Arcadia group; it hadn't been marked down from £89, but I made out to the assistant that I'd seen it on the website reduced so she'd check the price for me and yay! It was £59! Plus I had a 25% off deal (read; a very kind friend who works there!) so I ended up paying less than half the original price! I love it so much, although I've found it quite hard to wear; I feel like I can only wear it with all black, any suggestions?

I've become obsessed with 90210, so the rest of my day will entail me finishing off season 4 - I hadn't ever seen it until a couple of weeks ago; the lovely and beautiful Alix has been enjoying my 'vintage 90210' tweets - NICK CANNON IS IN HER HOTEL ROOM?! and OH. MY. GAY. are probably favourites ;)

just realised how much I've written about meemee; genuinely not a sponsored post, they just have a lot of great items and great customer service too!

    1. Hi Kirsty! Thank you so much :) They are a bit uncomfortable to be honest! But only after 5/6 hours, I think it's because the bit where you put your foot in is actually quite flat, do you know what I mean? I'm not sure how to phrase it, but they rub the top of your foot. If you look at the shoes here though, look how much they're broken already! The suede is coming away and so are both the soles - I've only had them just over two weeks! I do still love them though haha xx

    2. Thank you for your comment on my blog :) silly blogger hasnt come up with a notification yet if someone replies to your comment, it is a bit silly really lol! O I see what you mean, I can imagine when your feet are flat for a long period of time they would start to ache. Oh no that is really bad that they are coming away already, can you not complain they might send you new ones :)

      I still might get a pair even though I know that they are going to probably kill haha, I have seen some really cute floral ones on asos, I really neeeeed them!! http://www.asos.com/ASOS/ASOS-VERITY-Mary-Jane-Flatforms/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=1827999&SearchQuery=flatforms&sh=0&pge=1&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Blackfloral so cute!! xx

  4. ah your nails are so cute! did you do the hearts freehand?!
    the coat is gorgeous, you're lucky getting it at such a good price. i think it would look really nice with some high waisted coloured jeans & some nude shoes, i guess it depends whether you're a jeans person or not. i don't wear them often but i think the coat would look nice with them. or some disco pants & a sequin/embroidered top? i'll shut up now because i'm getting carried away! x

  17. I see what you mean about your coat, but I reckon you could wear it with a floral dress of red's and blue's, but it does suit black really well. Love your shoes but I reckon my feet would get way too uncomfy to wear them!
