Hello everyone! It feels like an eternity since I last posted but with exams and all the stress that comes along with them, I found myself so drained of energy and motivation, however they are over! On Thursday Lucia and I decided to go to London for the best therapy there is, retail therapy. And oh did it feel good to shop again (I had been restraining myself). Firstly I bought a pair of flatforms from Topshop. They are unbelievably comfortable and were an absolute bargain. I love monochrome and they slide into my wardrobe perfectly. Then we went to Aqua and their sale was amazing! (If you can, head to their Carnaby Street store). I got this cream pencil skirt which can be dressed up and down and fits like a glove, accentuating my curves in all the right places. In cream I also bought this skort from Zara. I know what you're thinking, errybody and they momma has them, which is exactly what I thought and so I was hesitant to try them on as I thought maybe they wouldn't suit my shape. However after trying them on I felt like Cinderella putting on the glass slipper. Seriously. They are so flattering and the colour and material is luxurious.
Perhaps my best purchase of the day was this pair of Linda Farrow Luxe sunglasses. We headed to the sample sale first thing in the morning and I have to say I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of sunglasses to choose from. Ask any of my friends and they'll tell you I have a slight obsession with sunglasses. Okay slight maybe be an under-exaggeration. I tried these on and guess what? They were only £20! This is a bargain for any sunglasses but considering they are usually £245, I almost fainted. If you've seen my last post, you'd know that I was on the hunt for the perfect gold chain and I found it in Topshop! Hurrah! I also snapped up these two snapback caps, the first from New Era (go Boston White Sox!) and the second from The Ragged Priest. I had been wanting them for a very long time and so to have finally acquired them brings a smile to my face.
At the end of the day, we headed to The Old Blue Last in Shoreditch for the launch party of Ballad of... Summer of '63 magazine and we were two of the lucky few who got a goody bag! It was a great night and after a tipple or two (or three) we made our way back to Kings Cross and had a late night bite to eat at Wasabi (get the chicken katsu yaki soba, it was orgasmic).
It's definitely good to be back, I've missed you all, and you can certainly expect outfit posts soon including all of my new purchases!
