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.)

In preparation of our upcoming holiday, M bought me two pairs of sunglasses (there was a buy one get the second pair free promotion at the store) and I decided to go for this Aviator style from the brand H1N1. I went with the aviator style because I have a broken nose and aviators have an adjustable bridge, which I can manually tilt and make a little bit more comfortable. Usually sunglasses give me a headache after a while. Here’s hoping these will be comfy and stylish at the same time. The first pair I picked out are these black rimmed black lensed glasses. The second pair are completely the same style but in a different colorway. They have a deep blue-green tint to the lenses (it doesn’t really come across in the product image, but in real life it is quite intense.)
They both came with this rather ugly sunglasses case, but I don’t care. I think the glasses are flattering on my face and they don’t press on my nasal bone too much so win-win. I can’t wait to wear them on my holiday and probably already tomorrow on the way to work, because these are too good just to wear on holiday.
Today I want to share with you two new pairs of shoes, the most recent additions to my shoe collection.
The first pair are these Reebok Skyscape Harmony slip-on trainers that are the most comfortable pair of shoes that I own. They may not be the most beautiful pair I have but they make up for it by being so good to my feet. M bought them for me in preparation for our July holiday (there is always so much walking on our holidays and my feet need all the help they can get. I am in between sizes and have a very high arch so finding comfortable walking shoes for me isn’t the easiest thing.) I’ve already worn them a couple of times and have one outfit post to show you in a future post.
The next pair is a lot more fun.

Sorry for the delay in posts, I was on a mini-break (from Friday morning until Monday evening in Rome) and needed a bit of a rest after returning to Prague. I’ll have some travel outfits to post tomorrow.
But I thought I’d share what I bought in today’s post. Our Roman holiday wasn’t really a shopping trip (that’s our London holiday) but I did visit 3 different Zara stores in between the sight-seeing and bought a few things.

Today I’m sharing another files of new post, since I’ve been naughty and bought a few things. My bank account is weeping but that’s a story in itself. But back to the new crap, let’s start with shoes, as shoes are always my favorite. The newest member of my shoe family are these Mel by Melissa flats that I sneaked into M’s order. I had been missing a pair of green Melissas and these seemed like the perfect pair for me.

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.

I wasn’t supposed to buy anything but I couldn’t help myself. I placed an Asos order today. I feel a bit guilty as I’m on the verge of being very broke but I NEEDED an outlet for my stress (I working on my thesis paper again and it’s about as stressful as it gets). Here are some of the things I purchased:
I’ve had my eye on this New Look strawberry clutch and it was the one from the new line that I wanted the most (along with the pineapple one). I was thinking of getting the Skinny Dip Unicorn Tears clutch bag but that one was more than twice the amount that this one cost, so in the end I just went to the cheaper option.

It will probably come to no surprise to you that I have been completely, devastatingly sad lately. I’m trying really hard not to be overcome with the sadness though and I figured the best way would be to continue doing the things I used to really like doing, like this blog. Honestly, I don’t think the blog will ever be the same, Dracul was too much a part of it, but I still want this to be a happy place.
I’ve bought a few things lately but to be honest they haven’t cheered me up too much. Nothing can take away the pain when you lose a loved pet, it just takes time I guess. But back to the materialistic crap I’ve obtained. Starting with a lovely coat from H&M. I got it in the sale for super cheap (it was 75% off) and since I liked it from the time it came out (but back then I thought it was over-priced) I knew that I wanted it. I really like the detailing – the leather look sleeves, the shearling collar, the gold buttons and the chunky zippers on the sleeves. I’ve worn it every single day from the time that I got it but pretty soon it may be too cold for it, but still I think it was a good purchase.
I placed an order on Asos when they had the 20% off everything sale and it has arrived today so that was nice. I didn’t really get too many things but a few nicknacks and a pair of pretty shoes. Continue reading Fake It to Make It
The day of my exam I bought this lovely playsuit over at Topshop and I originally picked out two more dresses but then I decided only to buy the playsuit. It was the last one available and it’s two sizes bigger than my size but I thought I’d just adjust it with mmy sewing machine at home, but when I tried it on later that day, I decided the only thing it really needed was a belt to clench it in (also getting rid of the cut-out, I’m not really a fan of cut-outs). I wore the playsuit Wednesday night to go to the movies. It was a great night and I was so happy to have my exam done with.

Just a quick little post today. Yesterday I had one of my exams, it was a written one so I don’t know how it went, but it wasn’t the pleasantest of days. I had a bit of a fever the day before and kind of just felt like crap, that’s never a good thing. Plus with nerves, well, let’s just say there have been better days. As a little lift, I stopped by Topshop and had a look-see. I couldn’t afford to buy any clothes (though I did spy this gorgeous black and white gingham skirt, swoon) but I did buy this pretty lippy that I have been thinking about buying on and off for about half a year now. I always talked myself out of it thinking that I don’t need another lipstick. But now I’m so happy that I did buy it and that I do have it, yay!
