Just Charlie G

So you’ll know if you read my post yesterday that last weekend I went out for the evening with a friend. My first night out in many years (excluding my husband’s work Christmas party) and I was so excited. I tried out the Halo clip in extensions which I loved but it was also an excuse to get properly dolled up. I don’t do dressed up like lots of girls do dressed up, you won’t find me in a Lipsy Dress or Fake Tan… it’s just not my style (although I sometimes wish it were).

So, by my standards I got properly dolled up. I wore leopard print leggings, a black racer back vest and some killer heels that nearly crippled me! I don’t have a good outfit picture, only a blurry one from when I was messing about with my husband! I also had a little leather (really not leather) jacket.

And because I’ll always be a rock girl at heart I accessorized with skulls of course!

You’ve gotta love a bit of Butler & Wilson haven’t you!

As for my make up. It just had to be the YSL Noir Terriblement palette didn’t it? With lashings of Guerlain kohl and some Japonesque lashes.

Oh and on my lips I’ve got one of those YSL Glossy Stain thingys, full post coming soon!

So there we have it, how I dressed for my first night out in many years. Oh lordy did I get drunk too, but I had an amazing time. You know it’s been a good time when you’ve lost your voice the following morning from all the singing and talking you did the night before.

Can’t wait for my next night out but have no clue what I’ll wear. It’s hard when you’re not really into dresses to know what to wear for a night out these days!

    Love the leggings and the shoe boots, very rock chick and your jewellery is fab too! I am going to the fourth 18th Birthday party in a matter of months tonight (friends’ sons & daughters) – that is always a tricky one to dress for, I don’t want to look like some old dear but god forbid I go out looking like mutton! xx

    • Charlie says:

      I feel similarly about the mutton thing but in the end decided I didn’t care all that much. Am sure you will look fabulous. xx

  2. You look really lovely, I love those leggings and your heels 🙂 All your jewellery is really pretty too 🙂

    Aw you look fab, esp love the last pic. Sounds like you had a brilliant night too… don’t leave it so long next time! 😉

    I love dresses but rarely wear them either… usually opt for skinny trousers, top & heels with big accessories.

    Charlie, you looked AMAZING!!! I’m glad you were able to go out and have a good time!! I love it when I’m able to play w/ makeup and dress up a bit too (which is rare). I really wish I could try some hair extensions, but I’m not sure I’m willing to pay that much. I was going to start off with bang clips (real hair) but I have no clue where to get good quality ones!

    • Charlie says:

      I don’t know either, but I’ll try and find out for you if you like. Sure you can get some somewhere that are reasonably priced and look good! And thank you for the compliments! xx

    • Mari says:

      Well, I just went for it. I purchased “pro fringe” by Pro Extensions (supposedly real hair) for about 25 US dollars. I’ve been wanting to try bang clips out for a while now, and I think that you may have inspired me to just go for it. The interesting thing is that I can barely find any good solid reviews for real hair fringes online… which is why I suppose I stalled in purchasing one before.

    • Mari says:

      What the… I just wrote this long response and when I wanted to “publish” it disappeared. Anywho, I wanted to tell you I purchased the “pro fringe” from Pro Extensions, supposedly real hair for about 25 US dollars. I hope that it works out for me, after seeing your review and how happy you seemed w/ your hair you inspired me!

  7. Jan says:

    You look about 14 (in a good way I hasten to add, not that you look ancient, she says trying to stop digging!). I think the fringe really suits you, I am glad you had a fab time.

  8. Leanne OCD says:

    You look fab Charlie! Glad you had a fun night out x

  9. Larie says:

    You look so happy and fabulous! Glad you had a great night out – sometimes we just need to get dolled up 😉

    Love this look, and those shoes are gorgeous!
    Your hair looks fab too, did you roller it or curling wand? (im obsessed with trying to get perfect curls in my hair at the moment)
    Glad you had a fab night out, us mummies need to let our hair down now and again!

      Hi Kerry, it was curling wand! It took me a while to get used to it and I burnt my thumb, even with a glove, once I got it right it was a breeze!
