Ring: Diva

On Saturday night I attended one of my oldest and closest friend, Courtney's 17th birthday party. The theme was Candyland, so I opted for a liquorice all-sort looking skirt (made by my fabulous mother) and lots of sparkle! The idea for a liquorice all-sort skirt came to me randomly one night and I am glad I went with it. It's safe to say I was the only liquorice all-sort there. The candy anklet and bracelets seemed quite necessary to me as they doubled as candy and an accessory, so it was a bit of a win-win there.

And how fabulous are these Steve Madden heels?! They were a bit of an impulse buy, but I am so glad I bought them! Totally worth the $130 I forked out to get them for Katy Perry's concert last year. They are surprisingly comfortable and the pale gold colour allows me to wear them with a huge range of outfits. The only downside is that the heel height is about 13cm, (but luckily the platform takes a few centimetres off the overall height), which makes me tower over nearly everybody! Alas, it is only a minor downside and I am wiling to sacrifice my semi-normal height and look like a behemoth for one night if I get to wear them. They make me feel amazing and my legs also look even longer than usual when I do.

I tried to make my nails fit in with the stripey theme I was going for. I think it could have gone better; I was in a bit of a rush to do them, hence the slight smudges you can see. However, I love the pink colour I used! I've been wanting to try it out for ages and am thrilled I was finally able to. I can honestly say it is one of my new favourite shades. Essie nail polishes are just divine and I seriously cannot get enough of them!

The party was an absolute blast! There was so much amazing food, as you can see in the above photo, all made by the birthday girl herself. I had so much fun! 

Love, Phoebe xo
