Sequins In The Rain

If you follow me on Snapchat (my username is tanyaburrbearr and I like to snap A LOT) then you’ll already know everything that I did yesterday, including a last minute panic when I had no idea what to wear to the Global Fashion Awards. I emptied my entire wardrobe onto my bed/floor and then proceeded to give up finding something to wear and watch a YouTube video of Dachshund puppies having a bath (this was about 45 minutes before having to leave). Do you ever have those days where you try on EVERYTHING  in your wardrobe and can’t find anything to wear? Anyway, I eventually found this beautiful, black, sequin dress from Needle & Thread in the back of my wardrobe. I actually bought it last year and the reason I hadn’t worn it yet is because it has a bit of a dodgy zip…the last time I had planned to wear it, I went to get dressed and the zip wouldn’t budge over the silky waistband even though I had tried it on the day before and it zipped up fine – it’s not really a reliable choice, you need to have a back up dress when planning to wear this one! Luckily, last night it zipped up no problem and I was ready just in time to take a couple of outfit shots for my blog, despite the pouring rain! I had my hair styled by the lovely Stuart at Taylor Taylor London on Portobello Road, I asked for a deep side part with some hair around my face and a kind of low, messy up do – I loved what he did. For my makeup I wore NARS Sheer Glow foundation, NARS Casino bronzer on my eyes with individual lashes and then Illamasqua lipstick in Rose Pout on my lips (obvs a few other products too, but those are the stand out ones). Ooo and my shoes are from Kurt Geiger! On my nails I wore Essie – Wicked.
Let me know in the comments if when you go on nights out you are like me and find something to wear last minute, or if you have your outfit planned a week in advance! If you have it planned a week in advance, please give me your organisation skills?!
