Red and Black Ballerina





Dress - Dorothy Perkins - £20
Ring - Dorothy Perkins  - £1
Necklace - Dorothy Perkins - £2
Nails - Barry M Raspberry £2.99
Shoes - Primark - £8

Last weekend I went to visit my family and my best friend for my brother's birthday. However for me, home trips always turn into shopping trips. Going to town with my mum and best friend is always lethal, even though it isn't that a big a town. 

This dress is one my friend picked up, and I was all 'I'll try it on with you!' I ended up buying the beauty. Well, I say me, my beautiful boyfriend paid as he's lovely with surprises like that! I think it's beautiful as the red-black contrast works and the skirt of it puffs out in like a 1950's style. I also love the ribbon waist. 

The ring my mum pointed out, as you know, I am a massive pug lover, but am aso a MASSIVE rabbit lover. I'll maybe introduce you to my gorgeous late bunny Humphrey one day.. (He was bigger than a dog!) Anyways, for £1 I could hardly say no, it's way too cute!!

I bought a few other bits and pieces too, which I think I'll do in my next post, as I am still new to blogging and don't want to run out of things to blog about already!

And again, thank you all so much for following me! It really does make me grin like Cheshire Cat! Who's feeling a 100 followers giveaway? I know I am! :)
