I don't have all of my belongings here in Nottingham (some are at home in Birmingham), so although I already own many clutch bags and heels typically the ones I need aren't here in Nottingham. & I don't have time to go back home & get them! Because of this I was on a mission yesterday to find some nice simple black stilletoes & a black clutch. It sounds quite boring but as my dress is a very bold blue colour & has a lot of detail, I didn't want to take anything away from it with accessories. Being the poor student I am, I was on a budget. Meaning, I couldn't get anything too fancy.
So, heels & clutch! Both of which I bought from New Look. The shoes were £24.99 I do believe. I loove stiletoes that have no seem between the platform and the shoe its self.. if you know what I mean? I think it gives the heels a very classic look. I wore them out to last night to break them in a little so they might not look great in the photos.
The clutch was £12, I think. It's not the best clutch I've ever seen but you wouldn't believe how hard it is to find a plain black clutch bag! It came with two detachable handles; one is seen in the picture & the other was quite ugly so I chucked it.
(It won't let me rotate the photo of the bag, sorry!)
On to the make-up I bought... so with black accessories & a vibrant blue dress I bought a nail varnish of each colour. I got both colours as I'm not sure what to do yet... gradient nails, stencils...? Both varnishes are from Rimmel; the black in called 'black cab' & the blue is 'blue eyed girl'.
I also bought a pair or Eyelure Naturalites in 107. My trusted old favourites :)
Despite being blonde haired all of my life I have never owned blonde bobby pins. As I'm doing my hair in an up-do Saturday night (to show off the back of my dress :) I thought I'd buy some to try & make it look as neat as possible.
There we have it :) I am ever so nearly ready for my graduation ball. All I need now is a backless bra (?!). Hopefully this won't be too hard to find tomorrow.
I'm soooo excited :D
