Work Sophisticated to Couch Casual! - FOTD + OOTD

Well my week has been pretty hectic - To be honest it's getting to be a busy time of year for me now January is over, yes it's gone - flew in. I can hardly believe it! So, I did plan to share my haul's I've had this week with you all, but with the amount of stuff I got I haven't really had time to sit and review it all - let's just say, I gave in and got some more Apocalips - eeek... Yes, I've hopped on that bandwagon - and that's me! - The fussies cow when it comes to lippy's!

So instead I've posed for five minutes and decided to show off a few things I've been sporting this week - showing I can be sophisticated and grown-up as well as down to earth, fun and a bit charitable...
(This may be a bit long but it's FOTD + OOTD in one!)

From my professional self to rocking the charity again!
How cute is the Cross detail?
I just thought I'd show the contrast between my usual onesie wearing self and how I dress to impress!

Work Outfit:
For work I always like to look fashionable and professional. I picked a dip-hem dress I got from River Island in the sales, which is a size ten, but I needed a bit more definition and added a little cross detail thin belt from Primark I got for Christmas. I love this dip-hem for work because it's pretty and stylish, but the longer back prevents any booty flashing moments to the co-workers. I partnered it all with a little blue Topshop cardi and a pair of Primark Wedges, it made a perfect work outfit, even in this weather!

To contrast my work and professional self I'd been feeling my fun self mixed with my love of charitable style and The Beatles - that's right the Stella McCartney's Comic Relief t-shirts are back and I LOVE them!

Casual Outfit:
I'm rocking on of my favourite bands ever on the charity t-shirts... I LOVE doing stuff for Charity, or at least doing my bit. Plus I got these T-shirts when they first did the Stella range years ago and the t-shirt is still good now four years later so for a tenner they're a bargain and going to a good cause. To top it off I couldn't resist getting a nose - or all three, I'm sporting Triceytops  in this photo (I will post many more!) To get any Click HERE...

Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer, No7 Essentially Natural Foundation,  Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer, Topshop Cheek Duo in Up In The Air By Louise Gray, Estée Lauder Chic To Cheek Tone Correcting Powder.
MUA Eye Primer, MUA Artister Collection, MUA Intense Colour Eyeliner Pencil (For the waterline)  L'Oréal Paris Super Liner Perfect Slim, Max Factor Clump Defy Volumising Mascara
MUA Brow Kit, Maybelline Master Shape Brow.
Balmi Coconut Lip Balm, SEVENTEEN Lip Liner, Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Galaxy. 

After writing all that it actually seems a lot to wear at once, but I value everything!  But I've especially fallen in love with the new Max Factor mascara - like every other woman I'm a fussy cow and always on the out look for the 'Holy Grail' of mascara's and currently, this one seems pretty good - definitely lives up to it's name with no clumps! I'm also loving the lippy and the brow kit - but I shall not speak much on them as I've got a whole review planned on them!

So what do you think of my outfit's that go from Sophisticated to Casual and my facey to match?
