Things I Love…

Standard

It’s been a while since I published a blog post but I’m back again with this post about things I’m loving at the moment.

Number 1:

My gorgeous new faux leather shorts from Topshop which I only just bought today! Cannot wait to wear them. My plan is to pair them with a lovely black shirt, embellished with gold beading on the cuffs and collar, which I got from Missguided a while ago (think I’ve blogged about it before) but have never worn, partly due to the fact I didn’t have anything to wear with it…but that’s all changed now these shorts have entered my life!! Definitely worth the £30 as I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of them. Also the faux leather isn’t too fake looking or shiny compared to some I’ve seen, the pictures can’t really convey the niceness! They have gold zip details on the outside leg too which I haven’t shown close-up in the pictures.

Number 2:

My gorgeous pink patent Ted Baker Mardun bag, which I love even more because of the bargain price I got it for at the Ted Baker outlet in Ashford! I now have the most organised bag ever- there’s a home for everything. One of the inside pockets is used for my phone, one for my keys, one for my lip gloss…etc etc. The outside pocket is unfortunately slightly too small to fit my 13” laptop when zipped up but I can still slot it in and not do the zip up; this is isn’t really a problem for me though as I rarely take my laptop out with me.

This is the lovely bull dog lining inside:

Number 3: My lovely Bobbi Brown cream shadow. I love this as it lasts for ages and you can build up the product nicely if you fancy a stronger looking eye, which is what I do for nights out. I also like to add a line of liquid eyeliner too. This colour is Galaxy (no.9 ) but there are loads to choose from, I spent a while deciding! Again, this is slightly pricey at £18 but a good investment.

Velvet and Fur

Standard

I quite like the fact that velvet is back in fashion, although I’m yet to find my perfect piece of velvet attire!

I really like this dress, but the cut out back puts me off because it just makes underwear an issue!

How gorgeous is this body?! I love it, and if I had the figure I think i’d definitely buy it! (Black velvet pinstud body Topshop £38) http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=33057&storeId=12556&productId=3962888&langId=-1&categoryId=&searchTerm=velvet&pageSize=20

Wear with some highwaisted shorts like these ones for a high impact outfit.

I don’t think this section would be complete without a set of killer velvet heels!
