Overdue HAUL

Just quickly a little snap of my outfit to work on Friday, I thought it was cute and clashing.
Tarten, black and white polka dot and velvet crushed leggings with my trusty creepers.
 just thought i'd share with you a few things i've purchased over the last
few months. 

(Clockwise) Leopard print belt, leopard print earrings, studded clutch and ring- Primark. Gold pony tail accessory and gold body chain- Topshop
 Floral bodycon midi dress- River Island Sale

Thick cosy jumper- Primark
I got this denim shirt from a car boot a few weeks ago, I did one with my friend and spotted it on the stall opposite.I've FINALLY purchased a black leather look skirt!! YAY I got this one in River Island for £16 as I had a 20% off student discount voucher. Thanks Company magazine xx
 I was also in DYER need of some beauty bits and piecesso picked up these from Boots, I love the smell of this hairspray and as it was 3 for 2 on hair products I thought i'd give the plump it up spray a go, (I also bought some hair dye) The brushes are just temporary until i'm able to afford some really decent ones. The foundation is my favourite for every day wear as its light, a great colour and covers well. I havent used this stay matte power in years but noticed I have gotten pretty shiny so thought i'd start again. Maybelline products were 2 for £10 so I decided to stock up on mascara and thought i'd try their smokey eye pencil too.

Last but NOT least, my favourite purchase probably of the year.
HOW AMAZING! I'm in love with it! River Island has some amazing pieces this season.
This was around £67 with my discount voucher from Company.

Apologies for being so crap at this blogging malarky but I’ve been pretty busy and un-motivated as of the last few weeks and I’m going to try really hard whenever I have a spare half hour to post rather than sitting on my arse and watching crap TV.

Anyways I thought I’d share with you my Jeffrey Campbell and Unif at Solestruck wish list. I love how rapidly Jeffrey Campbell’s collection is growing; the collection is becoming more and more accessible which for us fashionistas is a little annoying seeing every Tom, Dick and Harry wearing but on the other hand he’s an amazing designer and this should be celebrated! Who could not want/need/lust after anything Unif. AMAZING.

So from left to right we have;

Coltrane boot- I’ve wanted these for ages, unfortunately being an unpaid intern isn’t helping this situation, neither is them being sold out EVERYWHERE. I won’t be happy until these are a part of my wardrobe.

Lana- I’ve found myself recently being into baby pink, although sometimes it can look extremely chavtastic, I think these would be the perfect as they’re a little different with the curved heel and cut out.

Damsel- These are a great combination of colour, height, wedge and fierceness all thrown into one.

Lita- Although the Lita’s are EVERYWHERE now and most people can’t tell the fake from the real there’s no compromise when you come to the comfort. I’ve heard they are extremely comfortable and as they aren’t as massively huge as my Freda’s are they’re much more versatile as they aren’t so shocking.

99 Tie 2- As these gorgeous wedges don’t come above the ankle they’ll help to elongate my short stumpy legs, I love this deep red (purple) colour as they could be paired with a lot in my wardrobe.

Foxy- I love this pink as you can keep an outfit plain and simple with a pop of colour.

Unif Hellbounds- There are no words.

Unif Hellraisers- These would be perfect for work and every day wear, especially in our swanky new office. Spikes, loafer and leopard. PERFECT combination.

So that’s it, my not going to be able to afford ANY time in the near future shoe lust list. BOO

Day & Night

I've done this at work whilst waiting for an email so haven't had long to do it...apologies in advance.

I've put together two outfits, based around this cute black leather look skirt from new look. As most of the outfits I buy to wear on a night out I tend to try and dress down for work or a different occasion. I tend to stick to quite plain pieces so these can be easily mix and matched although I do have some loud printed pieces that I will wear time and time again because I love them, these I tend to differ with accessories etc. to vary the outfit as a whole.

Skirt- New look
Body- AA
Denim two-tone shirt- River Island
Vivienne Westwood bag- Vivienne Westwood
Freda shoes- Jeffrey Campbell (via Office)
Creepers- Ebay
Belt- River Island
Peace hoop earrings- River Island
Leopard cross earrings- River Island

Favourite pieces
Okay so I have wanted a cute leather look skater skirt for months now! They had a similar style in H&M but never in my size, I came across this one from New Look whilst reading the high-street edit in this months Elle magazine and now I need it! 
I have been lusting over this Vivienne Westwood bag for years now but at around £745 still to this day I cannot afford it :( MASSIVE BOO! I have a Marc B one at the moment which I absolutely love still after two years but i'm getting a little bored of it now and just want something new and exciting.
I thought the FABULOUS belt was a really cute modern twist on the Moschino Moschino.
I love how all these pieces are so versatile which is what I like to try and aim for. I wear a lot of black but recently been told I pull of the grunge look quite thats one good thing I guess!

What do you think of these outfits?
Would you wear them in the same way or mix and match?
