OOTN: Lace.

Fashion

Welcome back to my blog! Today, I thought I would share an ‘outfit of the night’ that I wore earlier in the week for a dinner and the theatre trip with my friend! I wanted to wear a few new items that I have picked up recently, whilst keeping the outfit smart-casual. I loved the look I created, let me know what you think too! Details on the items will be below with images as always. I am also sporting my new short hair in the images… and so far, I am loving it! It is definitely a big change for me (I have had long hair for years now) but I was feeling a big change! I think my hair cut is will help me find my new style and reinvent my overall image… if you can’t do it in the new year, when can you?! So, without further ado, I hope you enjoy this post, and please keep reading!

January Sales Haul.

Fashion

 

Welcome back to my blog! Today’s post is going to be a Boxing day/January sales haul. In the past two weeks or so, I have taken full advantage of all the sales that have hit our high-streets, picking up lots of bargains and amazing pieces I thought I would share with you! So if you want to know what I bought, then please keep on reading.

I thought it would be best to split the haul up into sections according to the shops I bought the items from, so first… Topshop! I picked up a simple short-sleeved V-neck body suit for £10, it is a fine knit material. I love the feel and colour of this item (stone), and thought it is a good basic to have for layering! This piece is from the tall section, however I didn’t find it to be any longer than the other bodysuits I own! The nextfullsizerender-18 item I bought from Topshop was a slouchy long sleeved double layered T-shirt from the brand Escapology. I love the style of this item as it is quite oversized and relaxed, not to mention it is a really soft material! I got the top for £15 from £30; I am very happy with this purchase and can’t wait to style it! The final piece I bought was a large, and by large I mean the size of a blanket, grey knitted scarf. Once again the material is really soft, and is the perfect piece to keep me warm over the next few cold months! It was reduced from £28 to £10, a brill price for the quality!

The next shop I bought from in the sales was Zara. I don’t typically shop in Zara, but couldn’t resist having a little look, and I actually ended up buying a couple of items! Firstly, I bought a black strappy camisole velvet top, which has a muted floral pattern with hints of burgundy & grey, black lace around the neckline and up the side slits. I think this top will be perfect to layer over a black turtle neck, but also by itself as it has a gorgeous low V-neck back. I picked this item up for £12.99 down from £19.99. Finally I picked up a pair of shoes; they are black leather ballet flats, with studded straps that wrap around the ankle. I absolutely love this pair of shoes as I think they would add so much to a simple outfit, but they are also are comfy… definitely a big bonus! Again, this item was only £12.99. I might have to pop into Zara more often after these finds!fullsizerender-17

I also picked up a few sale items from River Island. Usually, I stay away from River Island when it comes to sales;  I find them rather hectic and disorganised. However, I did find another pair of shoes and a two tops from this years trip, which I am very pleased with! First, I picked up another velvet camisole top to layer. This one is blush pink in colour, and also has the same black lace detailing as the one from Zara. I bought this top for £10 down from £22, and once again I cannot wait to wear it! The next item is a black lace top with frill detailing. Although this piece is not normally something I would go for, I thought it was too pretty to pass up, especially since it was only £12. I think this delicate item could be styled in so many ways, and might even include it in an outfit post in the future! Finally, I bought another pair of black shoes ( you can never have to many, right?). These ones are slightly pointed and have two studded buckles across the front of the shoe. They are a sturdy faux leather material, so will certainly need breaking in a little. I love the look of these, taking definite inspo from Fearne Cotton’s style! They will go with lots of items I  already have in my wardrobe, and for £25 I am very happy I bought them… not that it took much persuasion. fullsizerender-16

On my shopping trip I also visited Primark; I bought quite a few items… but the majority of them were not in the sale ( I couldn’t resist!). I did however pick up a heather grey hoody dress that was reduced to £5! I bought it in a size 12 so it is slightly oversized rather than fitted, and it comes to the thigh/ just above the knee which is the perfect length. The material is really soft, and almost furry, so it will definitely keep me warm for the rest of winter. I can’t wait to style this versatile piece; I think it could be dressed down with trainers and a denim jacket, or dressed up with some knee high boots. It is simple, but I am certainly glad I picked it up!fullsizerender-14

The last place I shopped in the sales was Office. For a while now I have been after some white trainers to add to my collection, so I thought I might as well have a gander in the sale to see if  I could find any! I actually ended up ordering some online as they didn’t have them in stock in the store;  they are the exclusive Adidas Superstar 80’s in white, with a silver metal toe, and an off white sole. They are amazing! Not to everyone’s taste but I thought they were a great twist to the classic Superstar trainer, and will definitely add something to a simple outfit. I got them in a size 6 for £52.00 from £84.99. I think they were a great purchase that I am really looking forward to wearing soon! fullsizerender-15

That concludes my sale haul post. I am very happy with the items I managed to pick up; I think it was a rather successful shopping trip. I hope you enjoyed this post, and keep a look out for my next one!

NYE- Outfit and Makeup.

Fashion, Makeup

Welcome back to my blog! I hope everyone has been enjoying their Christmas holiday, I don’t want it to end! For my post today I thought I would share with you my outfit for tonight (NYE), as well as the makeup I plan on wearing with it! So, whether you are staying in with family or painting the town red, I hope everyone has a great time celebrating, and here’s to a magical 2017! Let’s get onto the post…fullsizerender-7

Outfit– To celebrate NYE I wanted to wear something that was festive, but also something that would be fab for partying! So, with that in mind I chose my long-sleeved, burgundy velvet mini dress from Missguided. It has ruched detailing all the way down the side, and is also slightly off the shoulder, which creates a very flattering neckline(see picture). I thought the style, along with the deep red colour of the dress, made the outfit sexy and sophisticated… perfect for NYE! To accompany the dress, I chose a pair of clear Perspex heels (from Ego), as I didn’t want to take attention away from the stand out piece, and also the chunky heel means that I can party all night into 2017! As for accessories, again to keep it simple,  I picked out my diamante choker from Primark. I think the necklace definitely adds glam to the outfit. Overall I am happy with my NYE look and I can’t wait to wear it out tonight!

 

Makeup– For my makeup I decided upon a full glam look; I knew I wanted to include sparkles and glitter… If you can’t on New Years, when can you?! I created a silver and burgundy half cut crease using some of my new products (check out my last post for more info!); it ended up matching the colour of my dress perfectly! Details on the products I used will be below as always. I hope you like the makeup look I created and that it might inspire you!
