Fashion: The best £12.99 I ever spent

24 Aug

The last time you heard from me I was talking about sucking it up and buying a lipstick. This post is about getting over my ‘thing’ about trousers. I find it funny how much my blog has taught me about things that have nothing to do with my blog! Fear of failing and doing something new so often put us of incredible new horizons. Not strange, just human nature.

Seeing me in a pair of trousers is like seeing an Eskimo in flip flops. It just doesn’t happen. For many reasons. The first is the problem that one that faces all curvy girls face with a small waist ,big hips and some butt. Nothing fits quite right and everything seems a bit clown-ish. Most fitting my bottom half but loose at the waist. The only thing missing from most trousers I try on are braces and a clown hat. Resulting in a wardrobe full of dresses!

I walked into Zara one day determined to find a pair of trousers. Having scoured the entire store I couldn’t believe it when I saw these trousers. The shock continued to the changing room when I found out they fit. Zara do statement pieces like these trousers so well. Down from £50 to £12.99, bargain!

Monochrome Summer: OOTD and a Sparkly Treat

30 Jul

I am trying to console myself. Why? In the process of trying to be  a grown up, I have decided to give this blog a proper domain name/hosting. But alas I have already found myself on the support forum. 5 minutes in. Oh dear.

It’s been a while since I did an Outfit Of The Day, here goes!

I bought this  top from French Connection during a sale.  Its a  popular design but FC do it in the best quality I have seen on the high street.  Not at all sheer and with some actual weight to it.

I’m enjoying the last days of this  Monsoon skirt. It’s massive design flaw is that it doesn’t have a zip. As a result the waist area is stretched so the skirt can only be worn with a waist belt. Such a shame! The Chanel-esque strap makes my comfiness look a little more elegant. As does my Prada-esque  sunglasses. Too much Vogue.

Give a warm welcome to my new  Tiffany & Co ‘Diamonds by The Yard’ necklace. A.K.A. the love of my eyes for the last year. I told a friend of mine that I bought it and she said ‘FINALLY’ ha!

 I chose to to have in yellow gold as opposed to platinum as it suits me better. White metals like silver, white gold and platinum stand out more on me. That wasn’t really the look I was going for. I gravitate towards jewellery that is very elaborate or barely there. I have not taken my new necklace off since I bought it 2 weeks ago. Definitely the right choice.
