My accidental purchase

I accidentally bought some shoes yesterday. A pair of Hush Puppies mid heel lace up shoes. I blame it all on my workmate who is a true shopaholic, who dragged me to town during our lunch break to check out the Barratts sale.
I only walked in to that shop to buy some soles for a pair of boots that I've got that are too big. But after having paid for them, I saw, in the corner of my eye, a gorgeous pair of tan lace up brogues.
The style was
a bit like the shoes of the 1920's, with a mid-heel and pretty detailed patterns on the toe. And with a price tag that said sale, I just had to buy them!
They are real leather, and
they look great together with my new black military style dress and a pair of red earrings, which is what I am wearing today.
I feel pretty
, oh so pretty... :)

That perfect purple dress


I just came across this dress on the internet, and I fell in love with it straight away.
It's just my style, and it would be perfect for this spring and summer. Perfect as a dinner dress, perfect for a night out, and perfect for just any summer day.
The problem is; I don't know where to get it from! I just found this random picture online, but it doesn't say what shop it's from. Gutted!
So if anyone out there recognises this dress and know where it's from, please let me know!

Comfy, glamorous, sexy black dresses

All of a sudden I’ve got a thing for black dresses. From not having owned pretty much one single dress just a few months ago (no decent ones anyway), I now own quite a few. I bought 3 dresses last week! My excuse though is that I found them in the January sales.
So in my collection of black dresses there is now a knee-long flowing dress with ‘wing’ sleeves from Dorothy Perkins, a short knitted military style dress that’s very wintery, another short dress with a wide belt and layered details, a satin cocktail dress with open back, and the latest one in my collection is one that I found online just a couple of days ago that hasn’t arrived yet. It’s more of a ‘formal’ dress that would be nice to wear in the office, or out for dinner.
1. My knitted military style dress (My favourite one this winter. It's so warm and comfy!)
2. My new dress (I can't wait til I receive it! I hope it fits...)
3. My cocktail dress from behind (a bit too big and needs taking in. But absolutely lovely!)

Somewhere over the rainbow

First post of the year, and all I have to say is that I saw a woman wearing some extremely ugly, rainbow coloured tights this morning on my way to work.
Sometimes I wonder what people are thinking when they put together their outfits, and why in the world you would buy certain garments, such as these tights.
Oh well... Happy New Year!
