Mermaid




Dress - Missguided
Belt - Primark
Tights - New Look
Rings - Topshop, Me & Zena
Hair - Foxy Locks Extensions

Another day, another scandalously short dress from Missguided. I wore this yesterday to my nephew's christening (or christianing as a sign in the reception said). It was a lovely day, I'd never been to to a christening before so didn't really know what to expect but it was nice. A bit too god-centric for my liking but it wasn't really gonna be any other way! My nephew looked adorable in his little suit as did Chloe in her dress. Then there was a buffet afterwards which meant me spending time with loads of people who hate me so I had a bottle of magners, a vodka & coke & a smirnoff ice all before 1pm. Certainly made things more fun haha. Wish I could be that drunk every day!

This dress is a lot better fitting than the orange one in my last post. If you're on the larger side you need to stay away from any of Missguided's dresses marked S/M or M/L and get one thats labelled with an actual size number. I must admit I felt like a bit of a whore wearing this to a church but oh wells. I didn't wear my hair like this though, thats just todays added sluttery. I ordered some of the new platinum blonde extensions from Foxy Locks Extensions and they arrived this morning so I couldn't wait to try them on. I'd previously ordered the light ash blonde ones but they were just way too yellow for my hair. The platinum blonde is only a tiny bit yellower than my actual hair so its a great match. I felt the need to curl them though because I'm such a novice with extensions and couldn't get them to blend properly with my short hair. I used a Jose Eber curling wand which is really amazing, so quick & easy to use. My mum bought it for me years ago but its a similar model to this one. I'm well aware that I look a bit ridiculous but I've always wanted really long mermaid hair. My desire for white blonde hair means that it can never really grow past a certain length without looking like utter crap so extensions are a great alternative. I think I'm going to give these a bit of a trim though.

  23. Just found your blog and I love it, could probably comment on every post if I had enough time. I have the same dress in orange from Topshop and i'm sure there's probably been a few embarrassing moments due to the short length. Your gorgeous! x
