Flower Power

These are a couple of pics from Friday evening when I went to a flat party to celebrate my friend's 21st birthday (she is the one in the gorgeous blue dress in the last pic - I forgot to get a proper picture of it). I bought this dress on the Friday from H&M and I love it. I don't usually like things with lace-up bits for fear of looking too tarty, but I think this works because of the girly floral print and longer length. I do look a bit like I'm going to an afternoon tea party rather than out on a Friday night, but I needed to wear this. I curled my hair too but it only stayed curly for around seven seconds, even after using a nearly a whole can of hair spray. Nice to have a slight change though! I think I'm in desperate need of some fake tan on my ghostly limbs.

I've got my first exam on Wednesday - Land Law - so I've just been knee deep in joint tenancies and tenancies in common, mortgages and easements for the past couple of weeks... Joy.

Does anyone else's hand go shiny when they write too much - Like the side of your little finger that touches the page? Or is it just me?

  2. I understand your fear about the lace up bits. Your dress is definately not tarty. It's quite lovely, actually.

  3. Nope, it's just you. LOL. I love your floral dress though. It must be floral dress week in the blogosphere. And I love the fact that it laces up. To me, the effect isn't tarty so much as old-timey. In a good way. I love anything that resembles corsetry!

  16. That dress is so lovely!

    You're right about the restaurant experiences. The food was so good but service really did put me off. What's worse was that he greeted some regulars with a hug and a kiss which made me feel really insignificant! Ah well!

  21. Wow! You look so gorgeous. I love floral prints and this dress is magic on you. And fabulous hair!

    In NZ, land law is called "property law" and I shudder to think about it even now! I specialise in privacy and information law, family law, negligence and welfare law. I'm legal counsel - so working for government rather than privately. Good luck for your studies! It's tough but worth it.
