Graduation Outfit

I will be graduating this Saturday and have left it till the last minute to get my act together! Last week I found my dress and this week everything else is falling into place. After dragging my mother around Blanchardstown shopping centre and my boyfriend around Dundrum shopping centre I finally found my dress in a little village called Gorey in Co Wexford. Ruby Rouge is the name of the shop. I liked their facebook page a while ago and was delighted to be getting the chance to check out their store. I found this beauty....

Brand: Save the Queen. Cost: too much to admit.

 I also got my nails done. Tried out Shelac for the first time and absolutely LOVE IT! I will be going back in two weeks to get a new colour. I am not allowed wear nail varnish at work but we are allowed gel nails and shelac so I am delighted. My nails have been bare for the past two months until now. Nails cost €35 but I do know somewhere that only chargers €20 so I will go back there next time.

 I am not a big fan of having my arms out. Legs and a bit of boobage I do not mind to a certain extent but my arms are a no no! I picked up this lovely shrug in Monsoon. It cost €70 but I will wear it alot over Christmas to parties and its really soft...stop looking at me like that!!!

I am hopeless when it comes to finding shoes. I can never find my size in a pair I like. I settled for these court shoes with bow detail. There was another pair but the heel was killer and I have visions of me falling on my ass when I go to get my cert so I thought these would be safer. They cost €55 and I bought €3 paddy thingys to stop the back of my foot from slipping out.

All I needed then was a pair of tights that wouldn't rip while trying to get them on and a good bra! All set now! Thanks to the lovely @PrettyObsessed I am going to get my make-up done at Inglot on the day. I cannot wait. She gave me a voucher that entitles you to a free make-up appointment. I will put up a post of the full outfit of the day next week. Hope everyone has a lovely weekend. Oh and I'm off all next week...ner ner!
