Christmas Wishlist



Blue Fluffy Cross Body Bag - River Island
Rizo Frather Strap Sandals - Topshop
Multi-Chain Crystal Choker - Topshop
Patterned Maxi Dress - H&M
Naked 3 Palette - Urban Decay
Silver Metallic Mini Skirt - River Island

Around Christmas time I always hesitate to buy things as I am constantly thinking it will go in the sale on boxing day. Aside from the Naked 3 palette, everything you can see here I am going to be keeping my eye on closer to Christmas. I'm not going to lie as well, I don't think my mum has any idea what to get me for Christmas still, so this is also for her in case she gets stuck! I have actually been shopping and seen the fluffy bag in person and it is so beautiful! I have also tried on the H&M dress which looks SO amazing on, the picture doesn't actually do it justice.

Neon Sequins


|| Top - Miss Selfridge || Skirt - French Connection (similar here) || Coat - Forever 21 (similar here) ||
|| Shoes - H&M || Bag - Mi Pac ||

On Sunday me and the lovely Shivon had a girly day out in London before heading to the O2 to see Russel Howard, who was absolutely hilarioussss. We found a lovely little spot in Regents park that wasn't too busy at all. The crop top I am wearing was actually a sample I was fortunate to receive whilst working at Miss Selfridge as an intern in the summer. I was initially unsure if it was actually in store but took a lucky dip and searched for it on their website and there it was! (you can find it here). I absolutely love the pop of colour it adds to the otherwise completely black outfit! If you have been reading my blog for a while you are probably wondering just how many leather skirts I own, it is pretty ridiculous! The one you can see here is another sample sale addition to my wardrobe! After throwing on my trusty black coat and the good old shoes that seem to appear on almost every blog post at the minute, I thought my new Mi Pac bag would just add the right amount of, should I say 'bling' to the outfit. Seriously though, how gold is this bag? It is almost blinding!
I obviously returned the favour and took some beautiful photos of Shivon! If you'd like to have a look at her post click here. I honestly do recommend her YouTube channel too, her eye makeup is seriously too good to be true! You can find her channel here
I will be moving out of London on Sunday to go back home to Manchester until Uni starts again in September which is sad yet exciting! I will therefore be extremely busy the next couple of days, so the next time I'll be posting it may be from my beloved hometown!

Detachable Fur and Big Bows


|| Coat - French Connection || Bow* - Dawson D Rose || Bag - Fiorelli ||
|| Boots - Missguided ||

So I'm absolutely loving this cute little bow collar! Paisley has always been a love of mine, I haven't actually worn paisley in a while though it seems to have gone off the radar a little! I thought the green would look lovely against my maroon coat - contrast colours and all that. The fur collar and bottom of this coat are actually detachable which is a really handy feature. I have to say though, even though you cant see the length here as I am sitting down, if I were to zip the fur off the bottom it would be quite a funny length! My trusty Fliorelli bag I feel looks great with my coat too, I decided to then add my amazing over the knee boots from Missguided. I swear I can wear them with any outfit and they transform the look completely! These boots have also just come back in stock after selling out really fast!

Covent Garden



|| Coat - French Connection || Dress - Great Plains || Boots - H&M ||
|| Bag - Primark || Earrings and Ring - Market ||

If you live in London and haven't been to Covent Garden to witness its Christmas spirit yet, you really need to get down there. It is probably one of my favourite places to go in London, and with it being all christmassy at the moment, it is even cuter. These photos were taken by the my fellow blogger and new bff Shivon from shivonmakeupbiz.com who is not only the loveliest person ever, but is SO talented at makeup - like seriously. We had a lovely girly day shopping! We knew we would be taking outfit piccies so it was a bit of a let down when it didn't stop raining! Luckily, we found a little bit of shelter in front of this amazingly photogenic door. I got this lovely faux leather dress from a sample sale at work, it is a Great Plains number and I can't stop wearing it! The coat I am wearing is a French Connection one and is now my favourite coat ever. I decided to wear it with all black as I love the contrast. I also need to mention the jewelry I am wearing, I purchased the earrings and ring from an arts and crafts fair on Brick Lane and they are now my favourite things ever in the world. I will have to update this post when I find out what the name of the brand was called because everything on the stall was so beautiful!

Pink And Grey Hues



|| Jumper - French Connection (similar here) || Skirt - French Connection (similar here) ||
|| Bag - French Connection (similar here) ||
 || Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell || Earrings - Charity Shop (similar here) ||

As explained in an earlier post, I literally went crazy at a few sample sales at French Connection. The description above proves just that! Being the cheapo that we all know I am, all of the bargains  too cheap to say no! Anyone who knows me will know that I love baby pink (did you see my hair?) It is literally my favourite colour in the world and the combination of baby pink and grey is something that I love even more! Now that my hair has (finally) faded back to a blonde-ish colour, I can finally wear pink again without the fear of looking too obsessed! For this look I though my trusty grey heels would look lovely with my pink jumper and bag, I then pulled the look together with this sheer(ish) black skirt and extremely old feather earrings. Sample sale items aren't always in store yet so that is why you can see a lot of other options on my outfit line up!
