Wedding Vow Renewal Outfit & Nails

The weekend just gone I went to a wedding vow renewal in Newcastle to help celebrate 25 years of marriage. This being the silver wedding anniversary I opted for a theme on my look of silver/grey with a little bit of navy and some sparkle (of course). 

I'm sorry for the photo. I didn't manage to get one with just myself. Yes I cut my head off lol.
I wore a Madam Rage dress. I don't think this available anymore has I bought it last year. But the clothes are to die for and so cheap. Check them out here. I think the dress I bought was just £10.00. This dress actually as some silver stud type detailing on the vest type sleeve (sorry I didn't get a photo).

My Dolly ballet pumps are from New Look. I've had these for a good few months so they may or may not be available to purchase anymore.

Clutch was bought for just £4 from Matalan. I can't even remember exactly when I bought this but it wasn't anymore then a year ago. 

Cardigan from George. And Tights (you can purchase them in most clothing stores)

My jewellery were simple white gold hoops along with a crystal hand set bracelet which you can purchase from Warren James here. And right now it's just £24.50. It's a gorgeous bracelet so girly and sparkly. Sorry once again i didn't take photo's of my jewellery. 

My Nails

I left my make-up neutral, with browns and shimmery golds. My usual wake me up foundation from Rimmel and Matte powder. Bronzer to add colour to my cheeks and a swipe of the Korres lip butter in Rose.


  1. A pretty dress and elegant outfit hun! I'm glad you started doing nail looks again, xoxo.

    1. I've missed painting my nails I think I've done them about three times since I did the nail treatment. I don't paint them has much anymore but I have quite a few nail of the days in my draft box ready to be published they've been sat there since way before I even did the two week nail treatment. And thank you for your compliments the wind wasn't on my side though and the dress is shorter then I thought haha. My boyfriends dad asked me if I was having a few problems with my dress on that day haha. It didn't want to stay down lol xx

  2. I remember when I was a teenager and on a college trip and I wore a skirt with tights and the wind flew it up in front of some boys from my class. They never mentioned it so I don't know if they saw or didn't lol. I'll look forward to the other nail posts. Btw you could join our weekly tag now, doing nail designs if you want? Next weeks theme is purple, xoxo.

    1. That's embarrassing. I didn't reveal anything it was just trying not reveal anything. My tights are pretty dark and thick so it wouldn't of been to much of a problem I don't think if it had maybe might of died of shame and want to crawl under a rock. I guess I could I've got plenty of polish for it. It's just in case I don't have time everything is pretty full on sometimes xx

    2. Haha yes I was majorly embarrassed, I was luckily wearing thick black tights but still lol. That'll be great if you join hun, xoxo.

    3. Well if they didn't mention it (knowing what boys are like in high school) then you probably got away with it. Yep :) xx

  3. I love what you have done with your nails!
