The other night I attended a cocktail party with Rydog and I wore my new Alannah dress that I received for my birthday. I wish these pictures turned out better because they certainly do not accurately represent my dress. There is some beautiful detailing which doesn't show up particularly well and this dress also has a layer of silk with chiffon over the top and the sleeves. It was becoming dark as I was taking the pictures and I could do with a better camera . Anyway, these are the best pictures that I could come up with given the circumstances and I hope that next time I wear this dress I will be able to take some better shots.





I recently received this award from my beautiful friend Jennifer.

Ten things that make me happy: 
1. Spending time with Rydog
2. Summer holidays
3. Shopping for clothes and shoes
4. Playing Singstar
5. Watching or playing tennis
6. My blogger friends
7. Beach walks
8. Passing exams
9. Formal events


Five facts about myself:
1. I love cats
It normally takes me a long time to think of what to write about myself.

3.When I was a young child I wanted to be a police officer.
4.Confessions of a Shopaholic is my favourite movie from last year.
5. My favourite perfume that I own is Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue.

I'm pasing this onto:
1. Susi
2. Rose
3. Audrey Allure
4. Emily
5. Margaret

Jennifer Fabulous said...

That is such a stunning dress and you look beautiful in it! You remind me of a movie star from old Hollywood films...this dress is very Grace Kelly or Audrey. I also really like the shoes you paired with the dress. I love how they're not typical black sandals or high heels. They make the outfit even more unique. xoxo
