In alice in wonderland, chanel, make-up, nail varnish, new arrival, new look, nude, o.p.i, skull, tights, topshop on March 7, 2010 at 6:42 pm
ello tink
how are we all this fine Sunday??
Thought I would show you guys some recent purchases of mine!
Went on a little O.P.I kick!
found a really good store on ebay
I bought L to R:
Tickle my Francey
My Private Jet
Absolutely Alice
Mad as a Hatter
Rapidry Topcoat
I larf them all,
I especially am in love with mad as a hatter
my god its the glitteriest thing I have ever seen
however it was a NIGHTMARE to get off
Nail varnish remover didn’t do a lot,
so I resorted to picking it off
and it took half the top layer of my nails with it!
So now they are all uneven and bumpy 😦
thought I would show you how I store my polishes
I know its not the most organised of collections,
but I love my paul frank pouch and had to put it to use!
Talking of nail varnish,
when looking through my mothers nail polish box I found these
and she hardly ever wears nail varnish,
and I’m sure I haven’t seen her wear these colours even though they are pretty old
So I have borrowed them 🙂
and I cant believe I forgot to take a picture
I own CHANEL PARTICULIERE
I love it,
I know I’m buying into all the hype
but its such a nice colour
I was on a waiting list for a few weeks from my local Chanel counter
and she phoned me and I went and got it!
I got a little white Chanel paper bag too,
I had a perma-smile for about 2 days!
anyway back to my new arrivals
I got this trompe l’oeil inspired dress from oasis
Its soo cute,
very comfy and easy to wear
I bought it in black with a white print as well!
I got this over sized jumper from New Look
I love its fairytale theme,
and of course nude colouring again!
It even has pearls sewn onto the frame!
I also bought it in grey,
Its over sized so I bought the size down,
Its also slightly cropped
last but not least
I bought these skirts from topshop
I bought the green one first and then went back for the black and grey/lilac
they are made from nylon and elastane
they are almost like thick tights material!
the come in one size,
and they are amazingly stretchy,
they are a really versatile design, you can wear them as a high waisted skirt, t-shirt tucked in
pull them down for a knee length pencil
or ruche it up for a mini!

phew that’s it for now guys,
don’t forget to scroll down and enter my 50 followers giveaway!

Black and White Arm Warmers: River Island

Isn’t it amazing, I love all of sirens cardis,

I really liked today’s outfit,

never baggy jeans
I just felt like wearing them today
