Not THAT MUCH again really, especially in the way of clothes. However I have just seen an awesome vintage denim playsuit that I might have to add to this here wee pile, but only after I've been to the bank on Wednesday and had a look at my finances... I've a feeling they won't be too perky. WOOPSIE!
Anyways, here's what I've been buying these past few weeks:
Pegasus t-shirt from Studio at Topshop.
I bought this the same day I was running around trying to find loads of last minute stuff for the IWD Fundraiser and I can only assume my brain was totally fried cos I'm not really sure what I was thinking. I mean, it's quite cool and I DO like the print, but... I don't know, I'm not really loving it. I've just bought like 15 other spring-type t-shirts so this was hugely unnecessary, but whatever.
Motel lace shorts
THESE however, were not unnecessary. Since I don't wear jeans, I find myself constantly living in skirts and dresses which can get mega boring. I have a few pairs of shorts too - leather, suede and denim - but I still kind of feel they draw attention to my ass, which I don't love (read loathe). But I tried these on in the toppers in Argyle Street and totally fell in love! They are perfect to dress up or dress down and will go with my entire wardrobe. Plus they're stretchy so they fit over my ample arse but still hug my waist too. HI, PERKS OF BEING A PEAR. Someone needs to write a book about THAT, man.
H&M cropped striped sweater
So, OBVIOUSLY this is not me. DURR. But yeah, I couldn't find a pic from the website so I just stole this from Chictopia. Bad internet etiquette aside, this wee light knit is cropped to the ideal length (no accidental midriff, yay!) and is perfectly slouchy and casual for pairing with the lacey shorts. Possibly slightly unnecessary but it was only £7.99!! Freakin' bargain or what.
Deena & Ozzy at Urban Outfitters leather western shoe
Weird confession time... I own four pairs of virtually identical western shoes (one brown pair, two black pairs and one black snake-skin pair) from Urban and I love them all. LIKE BEYOND BELIEF. They are so comfortable, go with everything and are just generally my favourite shoes ever. My brown pair are getting so battered and bruised that I've been panicking for a while that I'll have to throw them out. Lo and behold I spied these badboys on the Urban website reduced from £95 to £60 and absolutely had to have them. I just had to. You know how some guys collect trainers? Yeah, it's like that.
Soap and Glory Great Kisser lip balm - peach
Still kind of bummed that I never got the Sheer Candy, I picked this up as a substitute. The smell is out of this world delicious and the sticky staying power of this balm is really much more like a gloss. Which is nice because I have loads of other balms purely for repairing and moisturising, but if I had been looking for this to do those things I think I'd be a bit disappointed. Definitely a gloss in a pot.
Aveeno Positively Radiant Triple Boost Serum
The part 3 of the 3 for 2 and a bit of a wildcard. I actually really wanted the Dr Weil for Origins Mega Bright Serum but it's like £40 so sack that. This Aveeno number is a total random addition but I'm very into serums just now - in fact I'm pretty sure it's my Advanced Night Repair that's made such a difference to my skin recently, and I'm hoping to double-team using that at night with this during the day. We'll see what happens. If it's guff I'll let you know.
So that's what I've been spending my HARD-EARNED cash on these last few weeks. If you've tried any of the skincare products or anything else and have an opinon on them please let me know innit.
