I haven’t done a proper files of new post in AGES but that’s mainly because I haven’t been buying anything beside Lush products. But since I recently placed an Asos order and as it has arrived (I even paid for the pricey delivery, as I have had many delivery issues in the past with the free shipping that doesn’t have a tracking number), I thought it would be fitting to show you what I got in the sales.
Let’s start with my favorite item: these Lost Ink pom pom flats.

Usually I’m all about the short skirts and mini-dresses (especially in combination with black opaque tights) but come the warm weather, I also gravitate towards comfortable carefree midi lengths. This skirt in particular is a favorite of mine, it’s from Topshop and I absolutely adore it (the gingham print, the style and cut, the material, it’s all good.)

A few days ago M and I went to see Fast & Furious 7. I had on a really cute outfit and I went all matchy-matchy. (My shoes were coordinated with the details on my satchel bag, and went well with my wool blazer, my dress matched the main color of the bag, my tights were black as was my cardigan and my pashmina scarf. It was all good.) As we were headed for the garage to get our car and go to the cinema, I heard this noise (like if my shoe was stuck on something and then popped away) but I didn’t notice anything and we went to the cinema. When we got there and on the way to get our tickets, the same thing happened with the other shoe. This time I paid more attention and then I realized that my sole (actually both of the soles) had become unattached from the shoe! Bloody hell! Literally one of my worst nightmares!! Both of my shoes were hanging on only at the toe part of the shoe! It was very difficult to walk (as I was worried the whole thing would come off and I’d trip and die.) We had a little over 15 minutes before the movie was supposed to begin so M went to get tickets and I went to Aldo to buy some shoes. I ended up buying the shoes pictured in the photo below (I didn’t manage to get outfit photos before.)
But I’ll show you how the shoes were destroyed below.

On Friday the 13th M and I went to a family dinner at the restaurant that we most frequently go to, as it is super close (two stops by public transport or a 15 minute walk) and we quite like what they serve there. This is the outfit that I was wearing.
I decided to risk the chill and wear some cute shoes as I am so sick of all of my ankle boots! These are my Asos “Leap of Faith” black and white Mary Jane flats. I think they are just the cutest. They are very comfortable to wear and go with basically everything in my wardrobe (or almost everything). Unfortunately it was still a bit too cold for them and my feet felt really cold on the way to and from the restaurant. Continue reading Friday the 13th →
Along with every other blogger I am seriously anticipating the arrival of Spring (we’ve actually had quite a mild winter so it’s not so bad). I cannot wait to stop wearing boots! Pretty heels here I come! The shoes above are my Vivienne Westwood for Melissa Skyscraper court heels, which I’ve worn once to a wedding (not the best choice as there was surprisingly a LOT of walking and standing involved and my feet were killing me…) and have yet to re-wear. I’m thinking a cinema date would be perfect, lots of sitting down and all.

Last week M and I went to see the Kingsman film and I thought it was brilliant. I LOVED it! Colin Firth was amazing (seeing Mr. Darcy kicking ass was just perfect, really.) Anyways, for the occasion I decided to dress smart, as a kingsman would.

Remember that fuzzy Topshop winter coat I bought almost a month ago? Well I wore it straight away after I bought it (and have actually only worn it once, it is a bit hard to wear. I did feel like I was sort of impersonating a white bear but otherwise it’s fine.)
Anyways, the coat is question is this Topshop Faux Fur Teddy PeaCoat. Now you do want to see how I styled it? 🙂

I love Valentine’s Day. And that has noting to do with love or relationships, I just really like hearts and sweets and positivity. One of my fondest childhood memories is of Valentine’s Day at elementary school when we would all give each other paper cards we made and eat candy hearts. The great thing about being an adult is you get to give and receive actual meaningful gifts. Yay!
If you’re struggling to find a gift for your significant other of the female gender or perhaps looking for a gift for yourself or a friend, Valentine’s day can be a bit tricky. What’s the perfect gift? For starters I’ll tell you what isn’t the perfect gift! Lingerie. For me, lingerie is a definite no-no. There are many reasons why it’s the worst gift and one of them is I think underwear is really something I need to try on, well, not the panties but bras for sure. A bra can be my size but it still won’t sit right so I would really dislike getting a bra as a gift. Secondly, lingerie is sort of more a gift for the giver than for the receiver. That said, lingerie can be a nice gift, it really depends on the person.
So if lingerie is out, what’s left you say? Shoes. Although shoes can also be something you feel you need to try on, but if you know a brand then you usually know what size you are with that brand. I’m usually a UK size 6 with Asos shoes, especially if they’re open toe heels (but if they have a pointed closed toe, then I need to size up to a 7). I adore the shoes pictured above, the Asos Harmony heeled sandals. The oversized bow is just adorable and I love the print of the shoes.

Disclaimer: I’m an animal lover above all and I don’t think it is right for people to purchase new animal fur coats (and thus supporting the animal fur trade). That said, I’m completely fine with fur items as long as they are VINTAGE and not furthering the demand for fur items. Maybe one day that will change and I will be against all fur items (because in a way even vintage fur supports the fur trade – someone will see someone else in a lovely vintage fur coat, they’ll want it but won’t be able to find a vintage version so maybe they’ll buy a new fur coat) (and in this day and age, when synthetic clothing can be just as warm as fur, no one needs a fox/rabbit/mink etc coat except for the fox/rabbit/mink etc.)
On to the fashion.

These photos were taken about two weeks ago? What a difference in weather! It is currently raining sleet and everything is horrible and freezing and wet. Ugh. These past few days my pig walking has been limited to bare minimums – we go out, he gets his business accomplished and we race back home.
Wearing: old knitted hat – H&M, bright trench – F&F, ugg-like boots – Truffle via Asos.
* They’re still a tad too small but for the occasional pig walk, they’ll do.
