Leaving Ceilidh Outfit

As some of you may know I am off on a big adventure at the end of this month. Myself and two friends have decided to move to Australia for a year!! We're all extremely excited about it but we're also very aware of how much we are going to miss our friends and families. So, as a nice way to say goodbye, and in a truely Scottish fashion, we are going to be hosting a ceilidh as a way to say goodbye to those who we'll miss.

While I was recently helping my mother with the food shop in ASDA we were having a wee gander in the clothing section (as per usual). We came across this dress and thought it would be perfect for the ceilidh. We also thought it would be great to take to Australia with me to show how us Scots like to do it. 

My size wasn't in stock so I had to get a size up which means it does require a belt round the waist but other than that it fits fine and since it was only £16 I really don't mind. For make-up I think I will try go for a purple smokey look with a hint of pink at the inner corners. I quickly tried it out (shown below) to see how it looks with the dress and I really enjoyed it so for the actual night I think I will stick with this make-up but add some false lashes. I also think I'll go for a lighter lip colour so my eyes are the main focus point. Less is sometimes more after all!

I also can't decide whether to wear my hair down (shown in photo's at the top) or in a side fish-tail plait!? Please help!!
