Lust After / New Arrival: Winter Drop!

In angel jackson, ASOS, boots, leather, lust after, new arrival, studded, topshop, urban outfitters, worker boots on August 27, 2010 at 9:43 pm
OK so I totally skipped day 7 oh well!
On Sunday I tidied my entire room, which is practically unheard of
and the boyf put all my pictures up on my wall for me and I totally love it!
Heres a quick looksie at what I’ve been buying,
and what I’ve been trying not to buy this week!
Bought:
Studded Boots
£50 AllSaints
Reduced fron £220!!
I luff them…. Lots
In the end I ordered this Aztec Cape / Blanket from Topshop!
It came online and a day after it sold out, it was only after it sold out I realised how much I wanted it
so when it came back into stock I ordered it straight away!
£36
I also discovered it had been put on line in this colour too
and I couldn’t decide..
So I ordered both colours and may be sending one back once they arrive
£36 Topshop
And I thought while I was there I might as well spend enough to get free delivery right??
So I added this t-shirt
as it fulfils my loves of grey marl, oversized tees, and galaxy prints!
£22 Topshop
I also ordered these boots
Oh I love a bit of embellishment on an ankle boot!
£38 Topshop
which is pretty good for a leather boot, 
I hope they fit me!
Aztec Snood
just yummy right??
Loving aztec, intarsia, navajo patterned knits or whatever you want to call it
and I thought this would be a nice way of adding a splash 
to an otherwise plain coat or outfit!
£20 ASOS
(ASOS have 15% off own branded items atm with code AWSTYLE15)
I am trying not to buy:
Well you might notice that these are similar to the other Topshop boots I’ve ordered
I actually saw these first,
but plumped for the spangley ones in the end as always!
£35 Topshop
This item is such a bargain
I’m really trying to resist, but wow
I want it… a lot!
Butterfly Bag by my favourite bag designers Angel Jackson
£149.99 reduced from £475 !!!!!!
at Urban Outfitters
I want these quite a bit
we sell them at my work so I can get a discount on them
 and also I could wear them to work for the whole winter
how comfy and lovely
might have to get them!
£135 Fitflop Mukluk in Amethyst
I’m totally excited about winter clothes
a lot
all I need now is a faux fur hat with ears
and I’m not joking, I’m on the look out!

and sometimes comment on my blog
I really appreciate every single person that enjoys my blog!
I’ve lost 2 or 3 followers recently which in a way has puzzled me

On Friday I helped host a swishing event!
For those of you that don’t know what swishing events are
 its where ladies get together bringing clothes they don’t want any more and swap them!

Lust After: Topshops new A/W collection!

In leather, new arrival, studded, topshop on June 30, 2010 at 7:49 am
O.K
so we all know I love a bit of topshop
and over the last few days I’ve seen a couple of posts including pictures of their new collection
and I was in love!
So as not to bore you with a repeat post of all the new piccies
I have decided to pic out my faves
and rave to you about what I like so much about it!
Capiche??
yum yum
what a combo!
I’m a huge fan of leather,
bags, boots, jackets etc!
So I’m tres excited about military boots still being around
especially combined witth a leather jacket,
underwear as outerwear dress
and AMAZING studded leather hat!
Did I mention this hat is amazing,
I seriously LOVE it!
I dunno how expensive its going to be
 but if its not ridiculous,
Im gonna get it!
O.K 3 things I like about this image!
1. Hat with ears I love hats with ears,
I own a few so I cant wait to get them out again!
2. Chunky knitted scarves, I had to get one hand knitted last year 
because I couldnt find one chunky enough,
so hopefully there will be more around this year
3. Leopard print (fake) fur coat! I have one, and I love mine
lots and lots and lots
Yummers,
victorian boots,
victorian dress
and a crazy studded jacket!
yes please!
Item wise,
these are a few that stood out to me!
This coat is amaze
I assume its fake,
but i like that it looks kinda real
with the different hues and whatnot!
I think this is the jacket from the other pic,
I love studds,
and leather jackets
so any combo of the two is great,
especially when its a leather denim look gilet!
I have wanted to make one of these ripped t-shirts for so long
but apparently its a real pain in the arse,
and tres time consuming
so topshop have done it for us!
Yay
Oh Wow
Studded cardigan waistcoat
words cannot describe,
wonder if it will be heavy??
Military Cape
I really wanted a cape last year but didnt get one,
There was a duffle cape on ASOS but I didnt get it cos it never went in the sale!
Cheapskate!
So yeah I think thats on my list this year!
Hope you enjoyed,
let me know what you guys think of it!!

Lust after: Alexander or Alexa – Battle of the Bags

In alexa chung, alexander wang, bag, handbag, leather, lust after, studds on March 6, 2010 at 8:38 pm

So I want a Designer bag!
I really really want a designer bag,
so I’m going to try and save up,
but which one to choose??

I think a mulberry alexa would be A-Maz-ing
So old school classic, yet modern and chic
*drools*
I love it, but I’m not sure it’s edgy enough

On the other hand
I would give my right arm for an Alexander Wang coco Duffel!
Sooo edgy and biker babe,
I really wanna be an Olsen!

But is it too edgy,
When I’m thirty will I wish I’d bought something more timeless??
Its damn sexy though

and Ever since a girl came into the shop wearing this bag
I cant stop thinking about it
by the time I found out what it was… it was sold out!

I think I’m going to try and get my sticky mitts on this one first

probably…..

whats your dream bag?

(p.s don’t forget to enter my 50 followers competition!)

New Arrival: Make-up and More!

In chanel, leather, make-up, new arrival, polka-dot, snood, tights, tkmaxx, worker boots on February 12, 2010 at 10:54 pm
Hello ladies,
Its struck me in the last few days that I’ve bought quite a few things in the last couple of weeks
And strangely for me, a lot of it has been make-up!
So I thought I would share with you what I’ve been buying
Above is all the make-up!
including
5 lipsticks
6 Nail Varnishes
9 Make-up Brushes
Got loads of new Brushes
the white ones are models own, I’m really pleased with them considering how cheap they are
The silver are Ruby and Millie
and the wiggly black ones are Sonia Kashuk from SpaceNK
love the brushes, but they took forever to arrive and spaceNK charge a lot for postage.
Nail Varnishes,
Im loving the Greige trend, started by Chanel’s elusive colour Particuliere
Models own had 50 percent off a couple of weeks ago
so I took full advantage and bought a lot including these 4 nail varnishes,
the 3 brushes and a little pot of loose navy eyeshadow.
I also bought this colour by Essie – Chinchilly
the Chanel jade green dupe by Barry M
and not pictured OPI’s you Don’t know Jaques
I bought my first lot of illamasqua too,
they had a 50% off section
So i bought 3 cream eyeshadows
In a shimmery white, taupey grey and black
I really like them, but have had trouble stopping them slide around my face, any tips?
I’ve also bought some lipsticks,
3 from Barry m, in pale pink, lavender and nude
and a nude one from illamasqua also in the sale
I love love love the three Barry m lipsticks, really moisturizing and fab colours
I love the colour of the illamasqua one, but I’ve broken it already
Its all wibbly wobbly at the base, so I think I’ve managed to snap it
which is weird cos I’ve never broken a lipstick in my life 😦
I don’t know what to do with it now, any ideas?
I literally could not believe my eyes when I saw Henry Holland tights in TKMAXX
Above are just three, but I ended up buying 9 pairs in the end
Loads of designs in blue pink and purple.
They are actually super comfy too, they feel good quality.
I also bought more tights from H&M and am planning a tights post!
I got this spotty dress from New Look, should have been £28
but it was reduced to £20 and i got 20% student discount on top of that.
Also I bought a new snood from Topshop
I love the nude colour and its really long
perfect for my how to wear a snood post!
I got an Eiffel tower t-shirt from topshop
using a voucher that I got for my birthday off a lovely friendling
Still a sucker for spots,
I couldn’t resist this top/dress from River island,
I love the style and frilly hem
just wish it was a bit longer
And just in case you were wondering,
I decided to keep these boots in the end
I love them, and have worn them quite a few times already!
I also spotted Ugly Betty series 3 for £17.99 on play.com and I had to get it
I now own all 3 series, perfect for a girly night in
PHEW
I have bought a lot,
and that’s not even all of it,
Night Night girlies

What Milly Wore: Dancer chic, and Which boots?

In all saints, american apparel, angel jackson, ASOS, boots, etsy, leather, lumberjack shirt, scarf, topshop, what milly wore, worker boots on February 8, 2010 at 10:24 pm

Why hello!

Fancy seeing you here!
Well this last week just gone was my first week of a new semester at uni,
I’ve actually really enjoyed it!
I’ve been very bad at taking pictures of my outfits
Sowwy 😦
But above is an outfit I wore last week
Consisting of:
Navy Waxed Coat: ASOS Sale £35 in the style of Alexa Chung
Grey Jersey Headband: New Look £1
Black Patent Quilted Bag: Angel Jackson Luxor Tote
Black Suede Pixie Boots: £35 River Island
Black Bootstraps with Gold Chains: 2bandits boot riders (so versatile!)
 
Underneath:
 Grey Unitard: American Apparel
(So comfy, but it’s a pain to get undressed every time nature calls!)
Navy Cardigan: Topshop
Ripped Denim Mini: New Look £6
Navy Scarf: Necklush (amazing concept, cross between a necklace and scarf!)
Really liked this outfit, it made me feel like a dancer!
  
 
Also here is an outfit I kind of wore today
Kind of because I bought the shirt today and was trying it on just now,
Chequered Shirt: SuperDry @ Bank £30 sale
Clown vest top: Allsaints
Dark Skinny Jeans: Crafted @ Republic

Now you may have noticed, I’m wearing boots that don’t match!
I’ve bought these two pairs,
Intending to keep one and take one back
Both £74.99 from River Island
But I can’t choose!
I don’t have the money to keep both so I have to decide,
I would love your opinions
My current feelings are
I was super super excited about the studded one; I had to track it down online (left)
But its pull on no zip, which annoys me a little
Also they are a bit shorter and I’m not sure if they cut my leg at an unflattering place
But off, they are my fave
The lace-up ones I prefer on I think (right)
But I have other pairs of lace up boots, although not really similar
But I’ve seen quite a few people wearing them, and not seen anyone in the studded ones
And I was just more excited about the studded ones
(click pics to view bigger, also please excuse carpet fluff!)

They both fit, and are both comfy,
HELP ME
🙂
