Birthday OOTN & FOTN

Ohh I’m not sure why I’m posting this… I know people like outfit of the day posts and while I felt nice on the night I don’t really like these pics, but anyway - I’m being brave!

We went out to dinner at Zen on Saturday night and had the most gorgeous meal - sushi, tempura, crispy duck pancakes & wasabi monkfish tails…

This is what I wore (please ignore ‘get me out of here’ stance!)

I love this silk bird print dress from Warehouse… it’s really easy to wear and much nicer in real life. The tights *are* opaque though they don’t look it in this pic and the stoopidly high platform stiletto ankle boots are Kurt Geiger.  They’re about 5” heels which is HIGH for me and I had blisters on my feet by the time we got home!


My sister was making me laugh when she was taking these pics while I tried (& failed) desperately to look natural! You can’t really make out the necklace but it’s Alex Monroe’s gold hummingbird.

Nails:  Orly Mineral FX in ‘Rock the World’ - sorry that these pics are so blurry - I’ll post proper swatches separately but have just zoomed in to try and give you an idea of the colour, which is a gorgeous uber sparkly bronze on a russet-plum base.

That’s it - gosh had no idea I used so many products! Hope you enjoyed as I won’t be doing another one of those for a while! haha

Thanks for reading, Nic x
