Most bloggers do a weekend wishlist but I find it best to fantasize about future buys on Mondays. Mainly because I dislike Mondays so anything that can make them more tolerable, I’m up for it. Anyways, on to the good stuff. Continue reading Monday Wishlist
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!
I came across this amazing online store called Pieces of the Past. Sadly the store is just about to close but luckily there is a silver lining to this story: they’re having a clearance. So we’re talking beautiful dresses at seriously cheap prices! And I just had to share it with you. The store sells some vintage items and some vintage inspired items. I went right to the dresses section, obviously. Here are some of my favorite:
To start this issue of Favorites let me show you one of my favorite outfits that I’ve ever worn. It symbolizes everything that is Very Veronique: a crazy print (Iron Fist t-shirt), a dose of a fun bright color (or fun tights in general, these are from Asos, the bag is from Pull&Bear and it’s personalized with a little picture of Dracul on the front), unique shoes (Iron Fist “Filthy Landlubber” wedges). Then add a favorite mini skirt (Zara Woman) and a fake leather jacket (Topshop). I wore this outfit to a lunch date and I have to add that the shoes were getting a lot of attention.
In this volume of Favorites we revisit April 2014. April is always a busy month, with the nicer weather there’s more to do and also so many people have their birthdays in April, it’s madness. Speaking of birthdays, this is what I wore to M’s brother’s birthday dinner.
Hey guys, I wanted to show you a few new things that I recently purchased over at Asos.com. For me it was actually a major haul (8 items in total), after quite a long time without any serious shopping. The parcel arrived last week and since then I took full advantage of Asos’s 15% off discount code that ended yesterday to order a massive amount of dresses, thus I am currently borderline broke . You”ll be seeing all my purchases as soon as they arrive (hopefully soon, cannot wait!) but until then, let’s review the order that had arrived.
First I bought a pair of Melissa flats. This is one of my favorite brands and when they are on sale, I usually don’t hesitate (well, depends on how much on sale.) Anyways, these are the Melissa Planet Hits flats and most sizes are still available. After trying them on and walking around the house in them, I think they are cute shoes but I kinda liked them better in the product photos somehow. I don’t know, maybe it’s because they sort of clash with my tattoos or something. But I still like them and maybe they’ll work better with tights or depending on the outfit? I was trying them on with my PJ’s..
Next up is probably my favorite item of the bunch. It’s New Look‘s Vanity Square Bowler Bag. It cost a ridiculous 11 pounds and is just gorgeous. Of course the materials used aren’t that perfect but I think it still will get a lot of wear and the cost per wear will be like zilch. There’s only one bag left so if you want it, I recommend snapping it up asap.
Next up is another favorite (and sadly, it’s out of stock). This Asos Vintage Style Octagonal Dial watch is just adorable. It’s dainty and wears more just a bracelet than a watch. I can picture wearing it with a carefree attitude, a summer dress and a pair of flat sandals. Which is basically how I am envisioning my entire summer (well, with the exception of a few date nights wearing some fabulous heels!) and I’ve been wearing it non-stop (partly because it’s the only watch in my collection that has a functioning battery, ops.)
Next up is a pair of very casual shoes. Asos Dockland plimsolls. I bought them with our summer London trip in mind and thought they would be perfect for walks around town, while staying true to my esthetic what with the leopard print and all. I’ll be honest and say I’m a tad disappointed with them, the material is very coarse and I bought a size UK6 and it’s a very tight fit. I think maybe if I stretch them out some they may feel better on and hopefully the material will get softer too but as I was trying them on around the flat, they definitely were not the most comfortable.
Next I bought two kitsch items, both from Gogo Philip. First up is a massive pair of earrings. These toucan earrings are boarder line insane and are also currently out of stock.The ladybird ring is also out of stock, but I can understand that more. The ring is adjustable (lucky for me because otherwise it would be too small) and the ladybug on it is adorable. I’m so happy about them both. I may not wear them that often but I like to collect strange and kitsch jewelry to add interesting elements to my outfits.
The next two items were unfortunately missing from my parcel, I contacted Asos (right after opening the parcel and finding them missing) and they have replied me and I will be refunded because both items are out of stock. I seemed to have bought lots of last pieces!
I have really good experience as a shopper with Asos. Anything goes wrong and they’re on it straight away! I once was sent two left shoes! And I wrote them and they told me to send the shoes back and then they resent me the shoes and I was also refunded the shipping cost of sending them the shoes. So I’m definitely NOT worried about shopping with Asos. The 15% discount is over but there’s still some bargain pieces to be found, so I definitely recommend stopping by. Oh, all opinions are my own and I didn’t get paid for writing this post, I just genuinely love Asos and am a happy customer.
