It was a Christmas Occasion

Hey Guys! Everyone loves a good party including myself so when my school Christmas dance rolled around I just couldn't help myself but do a blog post on it.

I would like to point out that I am holding a non alcoholic beverage but since me and my friends are all fancy pants we put it in some wine glasses. It is my last year of high school (here in Scotland if you stay on until 6th year you usually leave at the age of 18) so sadly meant it was also my last Christmas dance. Still it was an absolute blast and I had no end of fun the entire night, it also gave me a great reason to get dressed up and what girl doesn't love going out feeling all fancy.
I got my dress out of New Look and I believe it was in the 'apricot' range, and was a bargain at £30 (£27 once I got a cheeky 10% student discount). I was reasonably brave with my dress choice as it is a fairly clingy wee number and being a teenage girl we are all a little insecure when it comes to our figures but this dress did wonders for me and I really felt confident wearing it.
You cant see my shoes in any of the photos but they were just black suede 4 inch heels with an ankle strap and a small gold buckle, very simple and elegant. They cost me £15 out of Dorothy Perkins in a sale a couple months back. 
On to make up I went very dramatic on the eyes, the camera washes it out slightly but I had a bronzy gold smokey eye with a cut crease look and lots of lashes! I love a bold eye look! So to balance it out I went for a nude lip and a fairly low key base.
