My weekend - A film and family party

Saturday night, I had a quiet night in with Mr Style Eyes and some easy peasy food (my favourite). I constantly moan about how there is never anything on TV (not that I get to watch it very often). But I was in luck, there was a romantic film - Music and Lyrics starring Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore, that I had never even heard of before. I really enjoyed it and I really liked the style of the character Sophie Fisher played by Drew Barrymore particularly a very beautiful red dress.

Sunday was a big family party for my Grandma's 85th. A great opportunity to catch up with all of my family that I don't get to see nearly as much as I would like. I wore my new Tromp L'Oeil dress that I bought about a month ago, but haven't had the chance to wear yet. Tromp L'Oeil means trick the eye and is an art technique that uses imagery to create an optical illusion that looks 3D. I love the contrast of black and white and the hand drawn look of this.

Dress - Oasis
Mesh skirt - Topshop
Jacket/ bolero - Marks and Spencers
Boots - Topshop
Socks - Peakcocks
Necklace/ locket - present
scarf (in hair) - present

I love your dress it’s so unique, so quirky and cool! And I can’t believe it’s from Oasis, it looks like its by some offbeat designer. Lovely worn with the mesh skirt underneath too. That food looks yummy tapas style eating is the best
