Dress Diary # 1, The White Boohoo Dress

Welcome to my new series of Dress diaries! I wear dresses a lot so, pre warning everyone here, there's probably going to be an excessive amount of these!

I bought a dress from Boohoo a while ago and, after trying it on was all ready to send it back until my boyfriend pointed out that I was wearing it back to front. Seriously. Even though I saw the picture of it on the model on the website when I ordered it?! Anyway, after learning it actually looked alright when worn the right way round, I decided to wear it out on Saturday night.

This was £25 when I bought it, but it's now on sale for £10 (trying to stop myself buying the purple version as well) and can be bought here.

The only bad thing about this was, with the long sleeves, I actually felt quite warm. I'm not too worried about that though 'cause, let's be honest, this won't be an issue about 90% of the time in the UK!

I wore it with my spotty shoes, which I bought from ASOS for my birthday night out but then didn't end up wearing :

And this was my make up for the night:

Primer : L'Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Primer
Foundation : YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat
Blusher: LOreal Perfection True Match Blush in Peach
Lips: Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Rouge Podium
Eyelashes: Eylure Volume 101 Lashes
Eyeshadow: Urban Decay Naked Palette
Eyeliner: Collection Fast Stroke Liner

I got my YSL foundation from the counter in Debenhams, I went in to get my colour matched and she gave me a small sample to take away! I wasn't expecting that at all, I loved the fact that I could go home and properly try it out without being pressured to buy it there and then. (I hate that! And I also hate disappointing people so I'm one of those mugs that always ends up buying something I don't really want!) I've been really impressed with it though, so I'm definitely going to buy it and I've noticed that if you order on the YSL website you actually get 15% off until the 5th of July! Happy days!

Hope everyone's having a good week so far and please link me to any of your own outfit posts in the comments if you like!
