I've been a bit boring lately, as I'm now back at uni (I'm only there 2 days a week but I work 3-4 days a week too.) Anyway I do an ACCA course which is why the time table is slightly different to those that are doing real degree courses. Mines just chartered accountancy. :P
So I haven't really bought anything "interesting" recently, but here are my week's purchases so far.
I was walking through town the other day, not having any real aim to buy anything, just browsing! When I came across this in H&M. It's just a simple, sheer (can't really see it in the picture) black dress. I recently put on some weight and wanted something to encourage me to drop a few pounds. So I picked it up in a size 10 without trying on, when I got home it fit fine! (But I'm still going to try and lose weight!)
I've been lusting after this for weeks when I first seen it in a local shop in town. It was on sale from £40 to £30. I resisted and went home to search online to see if there was any cheaper alternatives or better ones. I failed miserably. So this week I popped in the shop and bought it as there was only 2 left! (It was hell to carry all the way through town and on the bus!) I'm so happy I have it, although I haven't a clue where to put it or what to put in it. Haha.
These are my first ever pair of brogues. Ain't they lovely? I wore them to uni yesterday and my feet hurt so bad! I haven't worn heels in absolutely ages. I still love them though. The heel itself is about 4-5inches. I felt so tall for once. Hehe. I had to buy in them in 2 sizes up! I have really fat feet! On a serious note though, they were really, really small in my normal size. I plan on getting some more, but maybe with a slightly lower heel next time!
I am simply loving this season's colour! Berry everywhere! (Or ox blood, as some shops are calling it.) This cardigan is from Topshop, and there was only 2 left in my local one! So I snapped it up quickly. I usually don't like knitwear from most places, as the material tends to be itchy or really coarse. But I was pleasantly surprised. This is so soft! I'm hoping to get another one, but in a nude colour (if there's still some left!) Are you loving or loathing the berry shade?
I also bought some loafers! I think all my shoe purchases are making up for the fact that I didn't fit the Jeffrey Campbell wedges I wanted (4s were too small, 5s were too big, so annoying!) I really like these as they have the chain detailing and a fringe at the front. It's slightly lighter in person, and looks way, way lighter on the website, but I am very happy with these. Even more so because they are size 4. (I was panicking the other day because I thought my feet had grown and I wouldn't be able to fit in my other shoes. God forbid if I outgrow my VW Melissa's!)
Last but not least, Models Own Professional polish in Stark Naked. It's a bit similar to the shade I bought recently "Nude Beige" except it's got a slight gold sheen. Not sure if you can see it in the picture! I was happy with the coverage of the polish, as one layer was plentiful. Though I didn't really like the consistency. I much prefer the regular Models Own polishes. So I don't think I'll be buying the professional range again. Also it's £3 more expensive!
I would love to read some of your comments about my latest buys! x
