Fashion Fixx ~ Adore Me Lingerie

‘What makes me feel sexy?’..

wpid-wp-1437599679635.jpeg

It’s a question I find myself asking on numerous occasions for some reason. Be it going to a party, on a date, shopping or writing. I’ve realised that I feel my absolute best when wearing new lingerie. Whether it’s girly & lacy or sultry & sexy, nothing beats new sets. Even if it is for my eyes only.

It’s time to get down to it and talk about all things lacy, frilly and girly. I’ve recently been introduced to Adore Me lingerie and have been given a little task of styling some of their fabulous line of underwear.

I chose their Breakfast at Tiffanys bra which immediately caught my eye. It is a gorgeous mix of lace and satin in a beautiful tiffany blue/ mint green. I’m one of those girls who love matching all my outfits and underwear is no different. I even love matching my underwear to my outerwear.  (Please say I’m not the only one) especially if I have a date or if I want a mood boost on that particular day.  It’s like my own little secret.. no one knows but me and I like to think it gives me a little power boost. (Okay, maybe it is just me..)

I’ve chosen a gorgeous pair of strappy mint green sandals from Guess. As they’re ‘barely there’ sandals, they’re dainty but the  stilleto heel gives it that sexy edge.

I’d keep the Base of my makeup simple and opt for a matte rose pink lip such as ‘She’s so Shy’ by Beauty Bar Baby on Etsy or ‘Brave’ by Mac which is a personal favourite of mine.  Has anyone ever tried Beauty Bar Baby? Let me know in the comments below as the lipstick looks amazing!wpid-wp-1437599672208.jpegOn the eyes I’d go for a simple brown smokey eye with a pop of champagne pink on the inner tearducts. The Urban Decay Naked 3 palette would be perfect for this look and I’ve included a little diagram below. Of course a cat eye is a must. Keep it thin and close to your lash line for subtle yet sexy eyes. Don’t forget mascara. Apply til your hearts content but please, I’m begging you to forgo the spider leg lashes..

Firstly, apply Strange as your brow bone highlight. Blend Limit in to your crease and bring it slightly above. Next, use Burnout on the inner corner of your eye and on the inner corner of your lower lash line. Blend Nooner in to the outer third of your eye and in to the crease, no higher. Finally, add Buzz to the centre of your lid and BLEND BLEND BLEND!. If you prefer a darker, more smokey look, I recommend adding Factory or Darkside to the outer corner and outer corner of your crease.

Keep contouring to a minimum as you want to look fresh-faced and perky. I’d opt for contouring my cheek bones and ever so slightly contouring my forehead. I’d then highlight the bridge of my nose, under my eyes and centre of my forehead. I’d choose a baby pink blush applied lightly to the apples of my cheeks and brought up the cheekbone ever so slightly. For this look, I would choose Urban Decay Flushed palette for all three.

You can’t forget about your nails girls. . The one thing that irritates me more than anything is a girl wearing chipped nail Polish.  We’re not all perfect, I know, but leaving your nail Polish on for weeks and letting it chip off bit by bit instead of just removing it is just gross, so if you do wear polish don’t let it chip off! I’ve chosen a dusty rose pink by Essie in ‘Swept off my Feet’. In reality, it is a lot more pink based than in the picture!

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and I highly recommend heading over to here and checking out some of their lingerie, swimwear and nightwear.

Fashion Fix ~ Outfit of the Day

Hello 🙂

This is my first ever full outfit of the day. As I work in an office, there’s not much choice when it comes to dressing first thing in the morning. I would be considered the least ‘conservative’ in the office and would often wear brighter colours than most.

I don’t like to wear much jewelry in work because honestly, I can’t stand the noise of bracelets and watches clacking off the keyboard. When I get stressed, the noise makes my head want to explode.

image

It is Summer after all, so I opted for an extremely bright orange roll neck shirt, basic black bodycon skirt, black tights and black Zanni & Co boots.

image

image

How beautiful is this shirt? I’d never usually pick such a bright colour but the detailing is out of this world. Just above the pleats there is is a zipper.

I got this in Dunnes Stores for €25.

My bodycon skirt was given to me by my sister and I got my boots in a local boutique, Shoe be Do for around €50 last year.

On my way put the door I did grab my black, ankle length, ribbed cardigan from New Look that I got for €10 in their sale in January. My office can be quite chilly sometimes and this is perfect for it. It’s a lightweight material so I still feel a little summery.

That’s all for now 🙂

Hello lovelies !

Yes it has been awhile.. I’ll be posting shortly with a little explanation of my absence and also a life update!

Next week I’m booking a trip to Barcelona with my two best friends. (Ridiculously excited!) So I’m on the hunt for some majorly stylish outfits for my travels.

As I’m going for 6 days, that means at least 9 outfits for me.. possibly even 10 if we decide to go to the beach! I’m not exactly a ‘light traveller’.  Considering I spent 2.5 years as a flight attendant , you think I’d have mastered the art of travelling light!!

Here’s my current holiday wishlist:-

image

Black ribbed wrapped crop top – River Island, €30

image

Black button up A-line mini skirt – River Island, €40

image

Black & white striped beach bag – River Island, €55

image

Brown tortoise shell cat eye sunglasses – River Island €17

image

Red jersey dress – asos, €30

image

White lace insert swing dress – ASOS, €40

I’ve a tonne more to add to this list, but these would have to be my top picks.

Would you like to see a travel must haves list!?

Haul – August

Hello beautiful people! 😊

I went ‘window shopping’ on Sunday with my mum and put a few things on hold which my mum was kind enough to collect for me today (Payday! Weeee!)

If you’ve read my previous blog posts you’ll see I wrote a ‘Payday Picks’ post which.. Didn’t go to plan as you’ll see, but first, let’s all look and appreciate the amazingness of cheesecake that I’m currently munching on while writing this post 😊

I added some sparkles for extra amazingness.

Anyways, on to my haul!

First stop was New Look (my favourite Store of all time) where I picked up a few bits for starting my new job!

IMG_7253.JPG

 

Black wedge booties with gold zip detail – 25.00

Navy jumper with gold zip detailing – 25.00 – This jumper is so soft! I picture myself living in it all winter!

Black sheer shirt – 15.00

How AMAZING is this navy & black check skirt?! I’m crazy in love with this! 25.00IMG_7259.JPG

White & Black houndstooth shawl/scarf/cover up –  I’m not sure how much it was as there was no tag. This thing is HUGE! So soft and so warm.. Excited for the colder weather now 😀

And then, I went to a local Boutique where I got this fabulous black Lucy Paris bodycon dress with gold detail reduced to €25.00!

Next up was a local shoe boutique. I’m a boot addict. When the air begins to chill, I turn to boots and will continue to live in them until it’s at least 20 degrees. I got these two gorgeous pairs of knee high biker boots reduced to €32.50 each! I got one pair in black and one brown which have gorgeous stud detailing up the back and a little buckle on the side where you can tighten them.

Then came my favourite part of the whole trip, which was of course the ‘drugstore’ which we call pharmacies in Ireland. I picked up my two brands of the moment ‘Sleek’ and ‘NYX’

IMG_7271.JPG

NYX

I picked up two lipsticks from their matte range in Merlot (red, red wine!) and Tea Rose, a soft pink, (Tea Rose was recommended by Tayslifeunscripted and I’m definitely glad I got it!) and a lip liner in ‘Cabaret’ which is a beautiful deep red. NYX have only recently come to Ireland but I have to say they’re quickly becoming my favourite brand by miles. Pigmented, long lasting and affordable, what more could you want!?

IMG_7279.JPG

 

Tea Rose, Cabaret, Merlot

SLEEK

Lo and behold, I then purchased this beautiful blush trio by sleek in ‘Pink Sprint’. I am in LOVE.

Sleek are known for high quality, highly pigmented shadows and blushes at super affordable prices. I paid only 13 euro for this baby and look at the colours !

IMG_7276.JPG

I don’t believe the name Pink Sprint really applies as two of the blushes are quite red toned.
I highly recommend this palette for A/W as it’s bang on Trend.

Lastly, I purchased this maybelline mascara. I’ve never tried this particular one, but I generally love Maybelline mascaras and this was on sale for €5.00 so I couldn’t say no 🙂

Follow me on IG @dancingindior to see how I style the clothing from this haul as well as makeup looks using Sleek and NYX !

I really hope you enjoyed this post, comment and let me know what you think 🙂
