Galaxy Print Dress

Dress* from Jolie Moi / Bag New Look / Jewellery T:S / Nail Polish Bubblegum by Models Own

I'm dressed in my Sunday slacks today but this is an outfit I wore over the weekend. It's another one from Jolie Moi and as I mentioned in my last outfit post, they have a few galaxy print clothing which will be a hit with some of you! I'm short (5ft) and this dress is way above the knee but I would say it's the right length for shorty old me, but if you're taller, it will look more like it does on the Jolie Moi model (proper mini dress). As well as this green one, it also comes in a cream colour too.

I've not done my hair here, I was running late (nothing new there!) . I always get changed first and do my make up second, then finally do my hair so it doesn't go flat by the time I leave the house! I finally purchased the Enrapture Totem Hair Tool because I saw tweets that it's on sale, and I love a good bargain! I bought it for just under £38 (it is usually £74.99). I bought mine from Argos but if you want free delivery, I would check out Amazon too. I've been playing it safe and using it on setting 1-1-1 for loose curls and I really like it but I've yet to try it out on different style settings. I didn't realise how hot it got, my old curling tongs didn't get as hot as this, and I managed to burn my hand on the Totem Tool on my first go! :(

Thank you to everyone who entered the competition. It is really nice to be able to give away such a brilliant prize. I got over 2,000 collective entries and the winner selected at random was Sheri Matthews who has now received her new ghd hairdryer!

How excited are we for the Olympics Closing Ceremony? I can't wait to see The Spice Girls! I'm off to dust off my ol' Buffalo platforms ready for a good nostalgic boogie... they were dancing shoes of choice in the '90s! GIRL POWER! Kapow! x

  2. gorgeous dress! I like that it's not the usual navy tones that you get in galaxy print clothes. I'll definitely need to look into it, I'm 5ft too and hate buying mid-thigh-ish dresses only to have them fall past my knees! x

  23. Gorgeous dress! I love this green one, edgy with the print yet soft and girly still. And I've seen the performance of the Spice Girls in the closing ceremony, they were my favorite girl band too of all time so I got so excited watching them! :)

  25. You look beautiful! I love this dress so much! Thanks for mentioning the totem styler being on sale, I'm heading over to argos right now :) xx

  26. Wow, the print of this dress is completely breathtaking! Might have to go an place a sneaky order myself. I'm definitely tempted to get the Enrapture totem stylers now they're on offer everywhere, but part of me shudders a little at the thought of spending £40 on tongs, considering my current ones were £20 from Argos ha :/
    The Spice Girls were amazing at the closing ceremony, it's made me quite desperate to see the Spice Girls themed musical later in the year, I have to admit! xx

  33. The dress is gorgeous, I love all the colours! I think it looks a lovely length on you, I think
    it might perhaps be too short on a tall person like me. I'm so jealous that you are getting to use your totem styler already, my brother's bought mine for my birthday so I can't have it until October. Can't wait to try it out! xo

  34. Sarah, this dress really suits you so much! you look lovely!
    I hope you got your platforms out, and got rocking!xx
