July 10th is my birthday and we had just gotten back from London the night before, I took an additional day off from work to unwind post holiday. I spent the day lazying about and then in the evening M and I headed out to one of our favorite restaurant for a lovely birthday dinner.
This is the outfit I wore to my sister’s birthday celebration, which was almost two weeks ago. It was a lovely hot day (not like now, sorry to be complaining but summer so far has been rainy and cold) and I wore one of my favorite dresses. It’s from Oasis and you’ve seen it before (here and here). I particularly like this dress because I find it super easy to style.
One of my favorite things about the Prague Zoo is its location. If you take the cable way it lends an especially beautiful view once you get to the top (you can just walk it up but taking the cable lift is fun). We had a fun time but I was freezing so bad (I was wearing a sweater and a jean jacket plus a pashmina scarf but it was so cold!)
This outfit was from Sunday when M and I went to have lunch at M’s parents’ flat. We walked there instead of taking the car (M wanted to have beer and I didn’t feel like driving, because I never feel like driving) and it was actually quite cold (it had snowed in the morning). I started with picking out which bag I wanted to take. I don’t have that many good bags, a lot of my bags are showing considerable wear and tear, and most of my bags are functional rather than fashionable. However, this H&M spotted white and black satchel bag is one of my cuter bags. It fits a good amount of stuff and I think it’s really adorable too!
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.)
Last weekend M and I went for a ‘mini-anniversary dinner’ to one of our favorite restaurants and it was lovely, I had THE BEST dessert, although mine was with chocolate ice-cream. My goodness, it was delicious! It was also great to go out and ‘get a breather’ from just staying at home and studying all the time. Oh and speaking of studying – – – I passed my huge exam yesterday!!! Hip hip hurray!
Sunday night, in the final few hours of the Asos discount, I was half working on my thesis and half online shopping. Perhaps not the best scenario, but hey, that’s life. Anyways, I came across this beauty, a gorgeous luscious vibrant red dress with a nice fit on the bodice, an interesting belt and what draw me in most of all, perfect exaggerated pleats. My goodness, it was love at first sight. Additionally, the price was incredibly low (£19.50). And of course there was only one left, and in my size!! I put it in my basket and did a happy dance. Then, instead of sealing the deal, I continued on shopping and kept adding things to my basket. Now, we get to the part of the story about the bad luck, but part of that is also a bit plain old stupidity.
When I filled my basket, I went on to go pay for my items. And here’s the stupid part, I entered my security code wrong. So of course, the order was unsuccessful, but worst, all the items disappeared from my basket! Gasp! Quickly, I added them all back (luckily all of them were still available) and I went to pay for them a second time. Now here’s the bad luck, I had set the online shopping limit on my card lower than the amount for everything in my basket, so again the order was unsuccessful. At this point I was like should I just buy that dress?
I went to add it in my basket but OH NO it was gone!!! The very last one, someone snapped it up right before my eyes. I was a wreck. I was so sad, you wouldn’t believe. I was like that beautiful red dress is the answer to everything! I need it in my life. So I searched Asos high and low for a replacement dress (and nothing came close, well except this one, that’s basically the same dress, just the price is much higher?!) but I did find some other pretty nice dresses and I fixed the limit on my card and bought a massive amount of dresses. My favorite of the bunch is probably this one (I mean, just look at that print) or this one (because I really wanted a dress from Oasis, although at the time of my order they didn’t have my size so I bought a size up and I’ll just get it fitted or do it myself). I also bought this dress because it was really cheap. But I must say, I laughed through the entire catwalk video – what’s up with that model???
Anyways, I bought loads of dresses (I hope they’re all worth it, I really spent way too much money) but all the while I still kept refreshing the Rosetta dress page to see if by any chance it came back. Well, it didn’t come back on Sunday, but on Monday there it was and in my size. I didn’t hesitate one bit. The order was sent, it’s currently processing and I’m eagerly awaiting its arrival. (Part of my Sunday order has already been sent but sadly only a part of it and I hate it when I have more than one parcel, but whatever, it was a massive amount of dresses so I shouldn’t be surprised.) I’m off now to
fantasize about my new dress work on my thesis. I’ll be back in the afternoon to write another post (this time not about Asos, haha) so stay tuned and see you then.
