Oh, what a night … dancing, cocktails, and a flirtatious little outfit …

Everyone loves a girl’s night … and with only one day left at work (small leap of joy), many of you will be making plans for the weekend and I hope those plans involve cocktails, high heels, and a splash of lipstick.

Unfortunately, mine don’t!  Mine will consist of wellies, wax jackets, and a brood of manic spaniels trashing my house.  Luckily, my need for glamour was satisfied last weekend which was spent wandering the hall’s of Oxford’s Vintage Fair before dinner, cocktails, and dancing with the girls.

The day was wondrous, but the week before was spent with yours truly being entirely pre-occupied with the age-old complaint – ‘I don’t have anything to wear!’
As much as I love my curves, they do make finding cute, playful, mildly sexy outfits rather difficult.  It’s easy for me to slip across the border to trashy so I have to be careful when it comes to low cut tops or cut-out sides.  I’m also tall, so many mini skirts are more like belts on me!

 

My lovely companions.

In the end, I went with a endearing scuba skater skirt from ASOS.  The fit was great and the skirt was full enough to spin about me whilst dancing.  I paired it with a white crop top that I tucked into the high-waistband of the skirt.  The top’s sleeves are long, which contrasted the plunging neckline nicely, so I paired it with stacked bangles, red nails, and redder lips.

The accessories game.

Unfortunately, the only full photo of my little ensemble is taken when we’d already arrived at the night club so apologies for the very poor quality and you can’t see the amazing sheer panel of the skirt!

I felt great in this ensemble, even though I ended up with red lipstick smudged all over the sleeves.

Now, which outfit do I wear on the next night out?
