Last night I had the honour of having the most luxury evening with some of my favourite people. Beth and I went for a cocktail at the Savoy before meeting up with Odhran and Damian for dinner at Clos Maggiore, which has been voted the ‘most romantic restaurant in London’. I decided it was time to wear my wild new acquisition: a Pin Up Girl Monica dress. It’s not my usual style at all but I’d been eyeing them up for a really long time and the beautiful Em finally convinced me it was the right thing to do. I got it delivered to the building I was staying at in Philadelphia which helped since it meant I didn’t have to worry about shipping and import taxes, and even though it’s still expensive for a single item, it’s also wonderful. It’s faultlessly constructed, a wonderful colour, thick, stretchy material, and I didn’t even wear a bra with it.
Most importantly, I felt amazing. A woman came up to me in the Savoy bar to tell me I looked ‘stunning’ and a girl on the bus home said I ‘looked amazing’, which is truly all the evidence I need that it was a great buy. I just hope there are lots more excuses to wear it!
Dress : Pin Up Girl
Shoes : New Look (old)
Belt : ASOS Curve
I decided to use my Tarte Showstopper palette for my eye makeup, and wear my current obsession, Kat Von D liquid lipstick in Double Dare on my lips.
It was such a beautiful, romantic venue, and the food was great. Check out beautiful Odhran in our delightful surroundings
And in keeping with the romantic spirit, Beth bought us all ring pops and proposed!
I can’t lie, Beth and I looked great last night.
