Sorry! So sorry! I am seriously behind on my blogging schedule but there has been so much to do! I was hoping to have all the photos from my recent London holiday but I haven’t got them all yet, and the ones I do have haven’t been organized yet. I am incredibly behind schedule, but going on vacation usually does that to me (which is one of the reasons I don’t really like going on holiday, but I’m weird.) I have a few posts planned out but they should be up and posted soon, the first one on Monday. In the mean time I thought I’d share what I bought in London:
I’ll start with my favorite purchase: these Doc Martens tattoo print tan lace-up short boots. I had wanted to buy them when we were in Rome on our holiday but they only had them in a size UK7 and they were too big, so when we were in London I found them in a shop in a size UK6 and the fit was perfection. I have a pair of Doc Marten boots (high ones, with 21 holes, also in a size UK6) but oh boy, those are still not comfortable/worn in yet. These seem to be wearable from the get-go but that probably is due to the height or lack of (the place where the other boots are uncomfortable are where they bend on the ankle, but as these new ones don’t go that high, they are fine.)
My next favorite purchase are these Toms shoes. They are the classic Toms in black, and omigod so comfy! At one point during my holiday I had really bad blisters from a pair of shoes that are usually okay and then I really needed something super comfy, that’s when we bought these. I LOVE them and have been wearing them A LOT lately.
Next are these Faith black strappy leather high heel sandals, my favorite thing about them is the almost wedge heel, which is really massive. The last pair I bought was a pair of Dune brown leather lace-up oxford shoes but I couldn’t find a product image.
Now on to the dresses, I bought 3 dresses in Oasis and the one pictured above is my favorite. The color (green is my favorite color because I have green eyes) and the shape are both amazing and the material is really nice. I love the floral/bird print embroidery going on. I haven’t worn it yet as I feel it is a special dress so I’m saving it.
This dress is also from Oasis and it has been worn already twice, once in London when we had dinner with my distant aunt and uncle (they are the nicest people, I’m always happy when we get to see them) and once in Prague for my birthday celebratory dinner. I love the different sized houndstooth print and the over-layer, this dress is very “me”.
Another Oasis dress, also already worn twice. I absolutely love the fading of the print and it is very easy to wear. I also bought a striped top, but again I couldn’t find a product photo (and I have yet to wear it). I bought a few more dresses, in the Retro Clothing shop and I bought a few books in Camden St Cyr Vintage shop. We also went to Primark, where I bought loads of black opaque tights and PJ’s.
One of the only non-sale items I bought is this Aldo Almemosa tote bag in a gorgeous blue. I have worn it almost non-stop while in London and I absolutely love it. It’s roomy enough but also doesn’t look too big. (My only dislike is that the front pocket that you can see is fake, it’s just the zipper, but whatever, I still love the bag.)
The last item I’ll show you is this Kate Moss for Topshop dress I bought. It’s the vintage 50’s yellow tea dress from her older collection. I’ve worn it once and I quite like it. Anyways, that’s all I have to show you today and like I mentioned above, the next post should be up on Monday, so see you then!
