What: Rocket Dog gold heart pumps
When: Friday, August 13th, 2010
Where: Non-Casual Friday! (Date night)
With: Green and gold dress (Miss Selfridge via eBay); gold belt (my mum’s)
Especially for Denise, who asked about my Non-Casual Friday ensemble…
This is a bit of a rush job, because I took a bunch of photos and then realised the flash had made my dress see-through: whooops! I went and put on a slip, and while I was there, I decided to add a belt and let my hair down (literally, I mean. I didn’t get drunk and start thinking I could dance like Beyonce or anything. Well, not yet…), so, if you’re wondering why my hair is up in one photo and down in the next, then, that’s why. And if you’re also wondering why my hair looks like it hasn’t been brushed in some of them, well, let’s just say the clue is in the question there.
This dress is by Miss Selfridge, but I picked it up on eBay, having had one of those “I have no idea where I’ll wear it, but I’m going to buy it anyway, because it’s £2.50, and also: is green” moments. I get those a lot, actually.
The shoes, meanwhile, are by Rocket Dog, and were a gift from the lovely people at Solestruck a couple of years ago, when I was still editing Shoewawa. I’m sure no one will be in the least bit surprised to hear that I loved them because of the combination of heart + bow, and for those little heart cut-outs all over the uppers. I also love the sparkly heels:
They’re a little less sparkly in real life, but even so, I feel like I could click these bad boys together and be back in Kansas in a heartbeat. Which would be weird, actually, because I’m not from there.
And now I’m off to enjoy my date night. Tonight we’re going to be watching the movie ‘Date Night’. Do you see what we did, there?
Have a great Non-Casual Friday, everyone!
