Leather, Spots and Swing Skirts

Hey! Just a few little things I've picked up recently. 

These I saw online on H&M in the sale and I'm really happy with them. There so comfortable. I love the leather look on the front. The back is elasticated so they fit really well with my body shape. £7.99

This piece I found in one of my local charity shop.  Its by MaxMara. Love the shape and the loose sleaves. On the back there are lovely black sparkly buttons. £3

Again in H&M online in the sale they have these jumpers for £1.99 so I got one! Too much of a bargain not too really.  I love the shoulder detail and it fits so well.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am addicted to scarves and I fell in love with this scarve from H&M.  The design is so pretty and goes with so many things. £6.99

I love skirts and wear them alot. I'm really into 50's style swing skirts and when I saw this online on H&M I had to have it. I love the bow on the front. Again it was in the sale for £7.99.

Last but not least this shift dress from Miss Selfridge really court my eye.  It has a silver zip down the back which looks amazing. I love the contrast of the dark navy blue dress and the long silver zip and the shoulder pads give it that dramatic look.  £20 in the sale.

Hope you didn't get too bored!

So Laque!

Loving Bourjois So Laque colletion at the moment.  What do you think of this? 

Santal Opulent 34. I would describe as inbetween a really dark purple and brown.

It dries shiney and last for a few days on me which is pretty good!  Can't wait to see what other colours they add to their collection.

Autumn/Fall Haul

Hello! I'm so excited to do a haul, it's been so long! There have been a few good sales on recently and also during the summer I went to a few car boot sales (if you don't know what that is it's an outdoor sale at which people sell things from the trunk of their carso I've include some of my car boot purchases too. 

First up its the shoes! These I fell in love with in House Of Fraser.  Full price they were £130 but I got them for £39. I love the colour, sort of like a yellow/green.

KG Heels £39

I had to think about the next ones for about a week.  I wasn't sure how to wear these but actually after I thought about it, they are very versatile.  I wear heels ALOT. If I could I would clean my toilet in heels. I'm definitely a heels person.  But I also love my ballet pumps....I digress... These were also House Of Fraser originally priced at £130 but also down to £39. These are real leather too.

French Connection £39

On the flesh!

These white shoes I picked up at my local car boot sale.  They are originally from River Island and I got them for £3. They have a crocodile skin effect which I love. Bargain!

River Island £3. Headband - Accessorise

Up close and personal
Up favourite shop in the whole wide world...ZARA! I feel in love with this jacket, its khaki, quilted with suede effect on the collar and on the elbow patches.  I have been wearing this to death.  It is so warm and looks great with anything and everything.  I wouldn't say this was cheap and is one of my bigger purchases.  I can't exactly remember how much it was, it was either £59.99 or £69.99.  Anyway it was totally worth it.


A while back I went to a market in London in Liverpool Street. I can't remember what it's called but they
had some amazing things there. I adore this tassel mustard bag. I have a thing for the colour mustard at the moment.  £18. Tweet me if you have mustard love to! :)

London Market £18
Another House Of Fraser find.  This is a real leather clutch bag that a full price would of set you back £89 but because the strap was missing it went down to £16 would you believe!! I would of taken the strap off anyway when I got home.

House Of Fraser £16


Another car boot find.  Another clutch bag.  The bow like-ness-thing is really girly and I love the stud detail, it gives it that edge. £2

This still had the tags of at the carboot sale. Originally from asos.  Orange 50's swing dress.  Not keen on the black straps but can easily change them. £4

Carboot £4
I couldn't believe it when I spotted this dress in a charity/thrift shop.  A-Symmetric white matt satin knee length dress. I bought it to wear on my wedding anniversary this year and my husband loved it! According to the label its a Bridesmaids dress!  £5

Charity/Thrift shop
I have been quite impressed with New Look recently and couldn't resist this sheer blouse.  The animal print with the contrast black collar and cuffs just look amazing.  I wish it was slightly more structured but I still like it. £17.99 (I think!)

New Look £17.99
Now its the attack of the jewels.  This piece was in  the Warehouse sale.  I love how there is a diamant√© in each little coin. £3

Warehouse £3
Dorothy Perkins isn't a shop I normally go into.  I don't know why, I should really because I went in recently and a lot of their jewellery was on sale.  This was £14 down to £2. I love the mustard snake print detail. (Ahh! Mustard Love)

Dorothy Perkins £2

Mustard Love!
Another Dorothy Perkins bargain. £2. The double chain drew me in.

Dorothy Perkins £2
Warehouse statement piece. £3. I love wearing this with buttoned up shirts or blouses.

Warehouse £3
The necklace below was a gift from a friend and one of my favourite pieces to date.  The photo just does no justice to it what-so-ever.  Will try & do and an outfit photo with this piece. Obviously don't know the price.

Phew! That's it for one blog post.  Hope you didn't get too bored. :)

Thanks for reading, have a great day!
