As yesterday was a precious, precious bank holiday, I decided I didn't want to waste the extra day off work and spend it doing something nice. I had really wanted to go to the beach, but sadly the weather wasn't on side. So, the boyfriend and I decided to have a chilled out day time and head out to a restaurant and the cinema in the evening instead. Naturally the occasion called for dolling myself up in a cute dress with nice makeup and here's what I came up with.

Although I've had this eBay dress for years now, I'm pretty sure this is the first time it has appeared on The Glitter Vixen. I know for a fact it appeared on my old defunct blog, but I think this its debut right here. In recent months, it has become a favourite of mine because when I first bought it, it was a little too big and shapeless. Despite this, I clung onto it, which has been to my advantage as I am little bit bigger these days and I now love the way it looks.

Pink and black remains my favourite colour scheme and this dress does that oh so well. It's mainly pink (good) but the black lace detailing at the top makes it very delicate and feminine. It doesn't look quite right without a belt, so I turned to my trusted black bow waist belt which often turns outfits from zero to hero. I also decided to wear a little black floral headband as I am trying to wear more hair accessories. While I love the way it looks, it sadly came off during the night because it was annoying me!

So how was date night? It was really lovely! I've been craving quesadillas for AGES because I don't get along with the hob in my new flat so every time I've cooked them recently, it has gone wrong and left me unsatisfied. For this reason, we decided to try out Chiquitos, having never been before. Not only did I finally get some quesadillas, but I also had some churros for dessert, SO YUMMY. Afterwards we went to see Bad Education, which was hilarious and had been in stitches the entire time. I was also pleasantly surprised to see Jorah Mormont in it, always wondered what he got up to in between getting kicked out by Dany and finding Tyrion ;)

All in all, I adore this outfit and would totally wear it again! What do you think?
