9223 Days On Earth

Last night I had the absolute pleasure of seeing the advanced screening of the heavenly, 20,000 days on earth. It would one of the most though provoking, inspiring and captivating pieces of biographical cinema I have ever witnessed and I really cannot recommend it enough. We were even treated to a live stream set from Nick Cave which totally blew my mind! 


We went to see it at a gorgeous little art house cinema in Cardiff called Chapter, that is not only utterly charming but it also serves some of the best food in the city!


Although I knew we were going straight from work, I wore something that I could easily convert into an evening outfit with a little flash of lipstick!


Dress - ASOS Curve, Shoes - Charity Shop (originally Next), Leggings - Newlook Inspire, Bag - Faux Westwood.

This dress is just incredible. It is not only a gorgeous print but it is inhumanly comfortable. It is cut with almost no shaping at all which makes it super easy to wear but the slightly more tapered arms give it enough shape for it not to just look like a flowery sack! I bought this 2 sizes bigger than I would normally wear because I knew I wanted it oversized, however, you could EASILY get away with buying it one size smaller than you would normally wear because the sizing is so generous!

Now, I must apologise for not featuring my shoes. This is because I am very angry at them. I found them, almost brand new, for £3.50 in a charity shop and thought I had the bargain of the century! OH NO! After an hour of wearing them (involving maybe 20 minutes of walking all in all) they became SO lose they would literally not stay on! I'm not sure if this is because of the design, the material or the quality of the shoes but the most ridiculous thing is, they are a size smaller than I would normally wear and this STILL happened! Shame on you Next!


There really is nothing that MAC - Lady Danger lipstick cannot fix. This is my up at 6am, all day wear makeup with just a little touch up of my powder but the lipstick has managed to bring my entire face back to life and give the illusion that I spent my day leisurely readying myself for the evenings activities.

Thank you Nick Cave, for a wonderful evening. You are the other man in my life and your talent, presence and ability to inspire total awe never fails to astound me.

Lots Of Love,

  1. I'm so jealous!!! I can't wait to see it! And a live stream too?!!! AWESOME!

    I adore the drapey fit of this dress. Something about loose, draped dresses just seem so effortlessly chic. Like, "i just threw this on and I look posh as fuck, whatever!"
