The un-party girl


I'm not much of a party girl, you could say I'm the party pooper except that I most often don't attend the party at all to be able to be the "pooper" at it. I prefer small groups of people (selected people), and I prefer quiet, cozy hours in an armchair with a cup of tea and a good book or my computer. Parties are to a big part everything that I don't find enjoyable, yet at times I find parties to be fun. I only need a week or two to recharge my batteries post-party.






The things I like the most about parties are the hours before. There's an excitement in the air, and as you're getting ready you get to do fun things. I like getting dressed up, and made up. I like fixing my make-up and hair. I find it enjoyable to create an outfit that'll look fantastic. It's just, when all of that is done... I feel pretty done as well. The getting ready for the party is the most fun a party is, in my opinion. Am I the only one?

Getting dressed up is so much fun that I sometimes get dressed up and made up for no real reason, other than getting dressed up! Please tell me there are others out there that also do this...




Cardigan: Old from Zara
Flats: Ballet Flats from Asos
Earrings: Old from River Island


This outfit is not from one of those "only-getting-dressed-up" days, I actually went somewhere afterwards and it was fun and very tiring, like parties are. I wore this fantastic dress from Chicwish that I had had my eyes on for months, until I finally found a reason to get it!
So - yay for parties (that gives you a reason to get new dresses) even though I'm the un-party girl.

  1. I love parties, but I very much love small settings as well. It always depends on the company and the type of party it is. This dress is so perfect, super super wonderful and you look like a dream wearing it!! So stunning :) xx

  2. I totally feel you. I pretty much don't go out unless I'm working / uni-ing /gigging. If I am out I take frequent 'toilet' breaks so I can get away from the noise/socialisation because being around lots of people is exhausting :s

    1. I could have written your comment. I am so much like you. Just the life of an introvert I suppose.
      Much love <3

  3. What lovely photos! I especially love those profile shots toward the end. You look lovely! I, too, am not much of a party-er. I just feel awkward and cling to whomever I know there. ;)

    1. Thank you so very much! You are too sweet.
      I feel awkward at parties too. And I do the clinging thing, and then I feel weird about clinging to someone, so it's all a mess. We're not all made to be party animals and there's just not much to do about it ;)

  4. Oh. My. Goodness. That dress is absolutely stunning on you!! I love it! As for parties, I could not agree more. I love planning outfits and getting ready for parties, but I'm more of an introvert..so actually socializing with people for hours and hours is incredibly exhausting. Sometimes it feels like weeks have gone by before my batteries are recharged enough to do it all over again. Glad to hear I'm not the only one!

      Yeah, because the getting ready is fun! The socialising - eh. I understand you completely. I'm the same way.
      I'm very happy to hear that other lovely ladies feel the same way :D
      Much love

  6. This is just too elegant and gorgeous! I'm going to have to print out one of these last to pictures and put it on my desk. xx

    Also, Introverts unite (separately, in your homes and quiet spaces).

  7. I totally understand you. I don't hate parties, but I much prefer small groups of people. Also, I feel like my entire life is getting dressed up for nothing! haha! so you are not alone.

  8. Wonderful dress!! I also don’t attend so many parties. I attend only few selected ones. This is an amazing party dress. I would like to buy a similar dress for my cousin’s engagement party that will be held at outdoor party venues Houston TX.

    1. Thank you so much! And I agree with you, a few selected ones are more than enough :D
      It really was a good party dress, I got so many compliments the evening I wore it. I'm sure you'll look spectacular in it.
