Christmas Clothes Haul

The blogger website won't let me upload any of the pictures! So I'm going to have to do it off of the app and then edit the text etc when I'm at the computer. I also have bought a lot of jewellery and am going to do that in a separate post tomorrow along with my favourite item ending 2011.
RIGHT so, with the Christmas money that I got I've put some in the bank to pay for a holiday next summer, but the rest I basically spent it in one day lol. I was meant to save £50 but then I went into Topshop and there were these boots that I had been lusting after for god knows how long! They were in the sale down from £80 so I just had to get them! I did originally want the Allegra boots but they sold out of them them :( but these are probably better so I am extremely happy!! The studs are what makes them I think. I love them <3

For Christmas I got these beautiful wedges, £80, also from Topshop, from my nan and WOW I've worn them already once which is why there is mud on one of the heels lol, which I'm going to clean at some point, but they weren't comfortable! I don't know why though because I'm used to wearing heels but they just hurt a bit on the soles of my feet. They're stunning though so I'll get over it aha. I love how they are wedges but have a slit in them to make them into heels. The buckle is massive as well, ahhhh I can't even write in a literate way, these shoes just make me too excited!

 I have two pairs of black flats, the studded topshop pumps, and the suede black ones with a gold bar on the front, but I wanted a pair that was more simple and that I could wear with jeans and them be a bit more bulky, as a posed to giving my feet a delicate shape. I don't know how much these cost cause I got them with my discount as they are from New Look, but they were under £15.

I bought my New Years Eve outfit FINALLY and I've been eyeing it up for a while now but didn't want to pay full price as it is from Primark. I don't understand how or why Primark now think that they can charge high prices for things, when the quality of their products hasn't improved. I don't like spending a lot of money anyway on anything other than shoes, so I definitely won't be spending a lot on anything from Primark. So, I was in primark with my mum looking for some slippers cause they always sell really good family guy ones around Christmas time, when I saw the dress which actually turned out to be a playsuit but it looks gorgeous on. It has a burnt sunflower pattern all over it which I'm really surprised that I like as I don't like floral prints all that much at all, but I was just really drawn to his outfit!
The top part wraps over and I plan to wear to wear it with tights, as I don't like my legs, and the Topshop wedges, with either my Black Cherry lipstick from Revlon or my Endless Drama by MAC.

I finally got a pair of leather side panelled leggings, but I didn't get the H&M ones, I instead got them from New Look! Get them asap cause they have already sold out in my work store! I got the leather fronted trousers from H&M though but forgot to take a picture of them! :s

I went into New Look the other day with my friend just to have a look because recently I've been on tills for the whole of my shifts so I have been able to have a look around the store at what's new etc. My friend and I found this gorgeous jumper with a speckled pattern or whatever it's called, and she ended up getting it, but I'm going to go back and get it!! But whilst we were looking at it and deciding whether or not to get it, I moved some of the jumpers forward on the rail and saw this vest top that I literally could not believe was from New Look. I still haven't got over that it's from New Look!! It looks like something you'd pick up at Urban Outfitters or something, seriously I really recommend everyone to go and buy this! I'm not sure how much it cost but without a discount I'd say it's under £20!! The silver lines I think are like a foil type of material, but the best part I think is the grey speckled material!

I bought a jumper from a charity shop because it had this gorgeous silver beading pattern all over it, except the bottom had werid sequins all over it which just were too gaudy and 'grannyish' for my style so I'm going to cut it off and sew the ends up with my new sewing machine that I got for Christmas!! That's why the bottom of the jumper isn't in the shot because I'm going to cut it off anyways.

I'm going to post the jewellery separately because I want to go into a lot more detail with each piece. Hope you enjoyed the haul xxxx

Big Haul Tomorrow!

So as its been Christmas I've been spending moneyyy and got some nice things and I'm really excited to do a haul tomorrow. I'd do it now but the lighting etc but here is a picture of this gorgeous top that I bought from New Look. It looks like something that you'd pick up in urban outfitters!! I'll go into detail tomorrow about it and stuff but I really like it, even though it spells out L O V E in the triangles, but whatever, it's cute and yeh I'm happy (:

(It's making me look really wide in this photo though which i'm not so happy with.)

"A Whole Bunch"

I haven't been very good at blogging again, I just always think that I've updated it cause I take pictures for my blog, but then always forgot to upload them! So here is just a whole bunch of stuff since my last blog post.

I saw Architects last night at the HMV Forum in London, Kentish Town.  WOW. I had already seen that at Reading this year, but it was raining a lot and just wasn't a fun time, so although I enjoyed it, it just wasn't as good as it could have been, and I really love them now so last night was just a lot better in general. Deaf Havana were their main support and as I got ridiculously drunk before we even got inside I only really remember about 2 of their songs? Which is terrible because I've been so excited to see them. I remember Smiles All Round cause they opened with that, and they closed with Nicotine.. so I remember screaming all the words to that one! I went with one of my friends that I haven't seen in 4 years. 4 YEARS. How ridiculous. So it was amazing to catch up with her. I don't have any photos of the gig, but i have a couple of videos.

I'm selling a lot of my coats on eBay but this one ahhh I'm so upset but it just has to go cause I know that I'll get a lot for it. It's a real Levis Denim jacket with a kind of, I can't think of the word right now, I know it's not fleece, but hm yes, it has a nice lining and it's just gorgeous.

 (The 'fleece' is really white in real life ha, it's just showing up with a nasty yellow tinge.)

I bought these gorgeous earrings off of eBay for like £1, free p+p! I am the bargain queens of eBay seriously. I just watched a video of NiaSays on youtube, and she mentioned these silver cross earrings she bought from for like £8, and I got the exact same ones for £1, free p+p! crazy huh? But yes the recent earrings I got are have a gorgeous jade shade stone in the middle, their silver and well you can pretty much see all the detailing in the picture.

They're so stunning!

The other day my mum made me 'run some errands' with her and she parked up and I didn't really want to get out of the car, but kind of wish I had as she took 40 minutes! I had my playlists and instagram to keep me occupied though. Have a picture of me looking annoyed in the car.

I always plan my outfit the night before for work because we're meant to wear new look clothes as our uniform, so I have to make sure I've got some new look stuff that isn't in the wash. I always wear the brown 'boyfriend' blazer/coat that was in a previous post and I have the black fur collar thing as well, but I'm going to wear the fur over my shirt which is white with a black collar and black strip down the front. My skirt isn't from new look though, but it's just a plain black skater skirt so I reckon I can get away with it.
And my phone case! Omg so excited about this! It's so cute! With the little ears ahhhh I love it so much.

Need To Calm Down


Me and my friend constantly troll the internet searching for Jeffrey Campbells, and omg she sent me a link of the spiked back litas gifudyfgohjhgxtsedfygiuhj

They're £115 which is an CRAZILY good deal as they're normally that price online but then you have to pay for post and packaging. These are from Harvey Nichols, and wow, when I get my Christmas money I am running to the tills with them in hand.
(This is barely even a post, just me getting overly excited about these stunning boots.)

Ma Babies

I've been wanting a pair of wedges for a long time now but haven't been able to find any that I literally loved, but I was on polyvore the other day, and I saw a pair of gorgeous wedges but they were near £100 and I just couldn't not justify spending that amount on a pair of sandal wedges in winter. So I had a hunt on eBay, and I ended up finding a very similar pair to my dream wedges. I love these and they were only £20, more or less, and I'm going to wear them tomorrow at an 18th. There are so many parties this time of year! 
My feet look insanely pale in this picture! They are quite pale, but this picture is just ridiculous. I'm going to have to put on some fake tan lol fer shurrr.
I'm going to wear the wedges with black jeggings and this GORGEOUS shirt that I got from Urban Outfitters.

bucket bag bargain

Like i mentioned in a previous post, I recently purchased these babies FINALLY and I am just so god damn happy that I finally caved and got them with money i should have been saving... but nonetheless, I love them, and I'll get a lot of wear out of them for sure. My feet are a size 8 which is quite big for a girl and I always worry about flats making my feet look huge, but these really don't at all. My feet usually look a lot smaller then they are anyway, but I still get a bit paranoid about them looking stupidly big.

My Alexander Wang fake that i got off of eBay has broken. Already. The zips broke about 2 weeks ago, and I had to hold it together with safety pins which was extremely annoying as getting in and out of the bag would involve undoing every safety pin, only having to do them back up again moments later so that all of the crap in my bag wouldn't fall on the floor. Basically, I hate the bag, and wasted £30.
So I was looking through a charity shop like I do most days, and I rarely ever look at the bag sections any more as the charity shops around where I live usually have really bad bags, or all of my friends have bought all of the nice ones, leaving me to only see the bad ones. Anyway, I happened to glance up at the bag shelf in one particular charity shop and could not believe what I was looking at; a real Estée Lauder bucket bag. I literally flew across the shop and grabbed it off of the shelf finding that it was only £5.99!!
The only annoying thing with the bag is that the leather draw string type things that hold the bag closed don't actually do that at all. There aren't any pockets inside either, but to be honest, I don't actually care because it's real Estée Lauder for £5.99.

Boyfs & Pleather

Like I've previously mentioned, because I work in New Look I get a 50% discount on near enough everything in store. I have been eyeing up the boyfriend blazers in store for a couple of weeks now, and even though I'm supposed to be saving up for a holiday next summer, I just couldn't wait any longer to get them. Yes them. I bought 2 of the same Boyfriend style blazer coat; 1 in burgundy and 1 in a camel brown colour. Wow. I was actually looking for one in dark grey or black but I just couldn't leave these. They were £50 but only cost me £25 cause of my discount. I also got a black fur stole which I'm going to use as fur lapels when I wear these coats. I think that it might be a bit too much for college, but I do study fashion therefore meaning that I can wear anything as I'm 'expressing' myself lol.

I've been invited to an 18th birthday on a boat on the thames! So naturally I've been searching for a dress to wear for a while now, and it's way harder than you'd think to find the perfect dress. I wanted to buy this gorgeous waterfall asymmetric dress which was chiffon and this gorgeous burgundy wine colour, but it was £48, and I knew that I would probably only wear it on that one occassion, regardless of me telling myself that I'd wear it all the time. It just would'nt happen so I didn't want to that amount on something that I'd get no use out of. So I was watching BeautyCrush on youtube as I usually do, and I saw that for a blog awards ceremony, Sammie was wearing this gorgeous leather dress from H&M that I had always picked up but never tried it on. Seeing it on her just made me HAVE to at the very least try it on. I fell in love with it, and am going to wear it with my black stole which i was inspired by Sammie herself wearing a grey fur stole with the dress. I'm so excited to wear it! 
I ordered some 'faux' Litas off of eBay and they arrived today, and I wanted to wear them with the outfit, but they didn't fit properly and I just generally was disappointed. For Christmas I am asking for real Litas, just the Leather brown block heel ones. I can wear them with a lot of things as the black will go with a lot of the clothes in my wardrobe.
