Goodbye, Farewell

Thursday, 18 July 2013


The evening before Prom, we also had a Leavers Dinner to say goodbye to the school which was practically my second home for the last 7 years. While it still completely freaks me out that I will only be returning there once more (for exam results, no less!) I love any opportunity for a new dress and this pale nude maxi from Miss Selfridge possibly tops the stakes as my new favourite item of clothing. It has a lace overlay and I paired it with a snakeskin clutch bag and some simple nude sandals. The hair was hot rollered and lacquered to the max, using my BaByliss Thermo Ceramic Hot Rollers, which seriously create curls which last. The individual lashes were cracked out once again and paired with a smokey brown eye and my trusty old favourite MAC Hue on the lips. The dinner was a mixture of sad goodbyes, hilarious pictures from our younger years and drunk teachers making fools of themselves.

On our actual last day of school were all dressed up as characters in the theme of Childhood, and I so very imaginatively dressed as a doll, which gave me the perfect opportunity for some makeup madness. I used a very similar lash concept as I posted about here which turned out to be both terrifying and very uncomfortable, but perfect doll eyes... 

The Wicked Witch of the West, Glinda the Good Witch, Dorothy and one very misplaced doll!

  4. How stunning is that dress! I can definitely understand why it is becoming your favourite item. It is beautiful, especially with the contrast of the snake clutch. I remember my leavers being so emotional, a rather long time ago now though.
