WhatLauraWore: Birthday Cocktails

Evening All

Last Monday was my 23rd birthday (I know, lets get the anti ageing products out!) and on Saturday I went for a night out in Durham to celebrate with the girls.  It was a pretty wild night filled with many cocktails.  In all honesty, I drank far too much than I usually do on a night out so yesterday I was nursing a very sore head!  Were too bottles of champagne really necessary?  Possibly not.  I had a fantastic night and I was so pleased I wore flats as my dance moves would give Michael Flatley a run for his money.

Tonight, I thought id show you the outfit that I wore.  I picked up the dress at the Simply Be VIP store opening that I attended in Liverpool recently.  It is not a style that I would usually go for and to be honest, at £70, its not a price I would usually opt to pay either.  That's whats so good about Simply Be opening stores.  I got to try on a long sleeved dress which I would never have ordered online, in a colour I wouldn't have ordered as I didn't think that I would suit the style or colour and I got to try a range of sizes.  I tried on four different sizes of this dress until I bought the one I wanted as it was a large fit.  Realistically, I would never have been able to afford to pull out £280 to buy four of the dresses online to then send three back.  I cant tell you how happy I am with the dress, I absolutely love it and it made me feel gorgeous from the inside out- it was so worth the money I paid for it.
