So on Friday i was the first person in history to ever graduate with a BA (hons) Degree in Street Arts and to add to that i was the first person in history to ever graduate with a First Class Degree in Street Arts (if i do say so myself)....
I would say i dont mean to brag but i slightly want to brag about it because getting a 1st for my Degree is the thing i am most proud of myself for achieving! So i shall get it out of my system early...
I GOT A FIRST WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :D GO MEEE! GO MEEE! YAY YAY YAY!
Ok now thats done with lets talk fashion.
I had been looking for a dress to graduate in for a very long time! And whilst looking at what other girls were wearing to their graduation yes they all looked very smart and sophisticated and also very lovely but i just dont do office wear. My idea of smart is different to most. And my mantra on this was that these pictures will be on the walls of my family's homes for a very long time and so i must look fabulous!
I knew i did not want to wear black. My cap and gown were to be black and i didnt want to look morbid. I knew i did not want to wear something that anyone else would turn up in. And then i found my dress and i fell in love with it. It reminded me of a 1920's flapper dress that had a 2012 update. It was pretty, expensive looking, sophisticated, elegant and i wanted to put a gothic twist on it.
I promise the photos are coming soon, i will shut up in just a tick! I teamed my lovely dress with spangly jewellry and matching shoes. My lips were deep purple. My hair in messy curls. I felt like a princess.....
If your looking for an amazeballs purple lipstick i LOVE LOVE LOVE the YSL ones! They have the most amount of shades of purple i have seen from any make-up brand and it is soft and stays fresh feeling for ages! *BONUS* it smells (and tastes) like berries. Im not suggesting you eat it but when i licked my lips after eating i was like yum!
DRUM ROLL PLEASE.....
Back View (with awkward arm)
The post wouldnt be complete without a shot of my whole graduation look!!
And finally, here i am in the evening when the gown had to go back and the wind was bitter! I teamed my gorgeous gown with some pretty pink pumps from Next and a fluffy white jumper from H&M....and then i ran through the high street :)
Peace, Love and Congraduations to all 2012 graduates :) x
