Lady In Red.......Shopping Haul!

Its my parents silver wedding annivarsary in September and they are having a big party to I guess its a good excuse to buy a gorgeous new dress :)

So today after visiting my lovely grandad in hospital :( I popped into Liverpool One shopping centre, I love the way they are doing up Liverpool City Centre, its a fab city I miss living there so much :(

So firstly I found this gorgeous red dress in Karen Millen, I love the rose detail and the netting was love at first sight!
When buying a new dress you need to think about the whole outfit and that includes make up! So I'm not sure what look I would go for with a red dress as I dont think red lips suit me and I cant think of another lip colour that would compliment the dress......and ideas please??

Before I committed to buying (and being 200 pound down eek!) I decided to have a quick look around and came across this beautiful maxi dress in coast
This was in the sale (good times -95 pound!!) but the size is a 16 (I thought it was a 6 i didnt see the 1 hence why i tried it on!) but my lovely mother is a excellent seamtress in her spare time and can make anything so she would be able to alter the dress so it fits perfectly :)

So now which dress should I go for?? Decisions decisions decisions........

Heres a quick FOTD for my shopping and hospital visit......kept it subte but pretty as you never know which hot doctors will be on the wards (the perks of working in a hospital hehe)
I used Benefit Play sticks in Jump Rope, Benefit 10 and MAC well dressed blush on cheeks, MAC Tempting, and moonstruck eyeshadow and MAC blacktrack fluidline, and Maybelline Pulse Perfection mascara

While in Liverpool I also nipped into TJ Hughes, this is a great bargin shop and sometimes have benefit and TIGI, Lancome, L'Oreal, Elizabeth Arden, etc at bargin prices! So today I got TIGI Brunette Goddess shampoo for a bargin 6 quid, and St Moriz Fake tan, I have heard good things about this product so cant wait to see if it lives up to the hype!

I also picked up this litte crop top from Topshop which I plan on wearing in Ibiza next week when I'm clubbing!!! I think it is perfect with a mini skirt, large aviators, statement earrings and dancing all night in the legendary clubs....can you tell i'm excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope you all have a lovely bank holiday I plan on partying (good times) in between working (bad times, esp when creamfields is right near the hospital where i work so got a busy ae shift to look forward to, I should be clubbing at creamfields too not fair!)
