I'd had my eyes on a beautiful studded clutch bag from Toppyshoppy for ages, and when pay day came around I finally allowed myself to buy it, only to find it out of stock - online and in the shops. So when I saw Steph from MoreeMilk's blogpost on the bargain studded clutch from Select I knew I had to get it - and it has cured my heartbreak over the Topshop one, and for a fraction of the price.
The studded heels were an impulse buy and they're one of those 'love it or hate it' items - personally, I love nothing more than a bit of tack so I snapped them up. They're so comfy - really soft and squishy and the heel isn't so high that I can't wear them in the day. I might actually have to grab myself a back up pair...
I'm undecided about the striped jeans. I'm not sure if they're really 'me' yet - I'm very much a tights/black skinnies & heels kind of girl and these are fairly casual for me! But I saw a girl at Uni wearing some similar and they looked amazing - for £12, I'll give them a whirl.. The bodycon dress is a bit of a 'statement' item, but i'll be wearing this for a few birthday drinks next month (I turn 22..eek) It will look so nice with a black blazer and killer heels..
Finally, FINALLY I got my mitts on some of the Lush goodies from their new 'Emotional Brilliance' range - I'm a massive Lush fan, and I spent a good half an hour having a natter about makeup and suchlike with the lovely staff - I originally went in just for the Liquid Lips, but the young man who served me unknowingly talked me into the Charisma Skin Tint too - his general happiness and enthusiasm on life tempted me into buying it - cracking sales technique, young fellow...
Have you tried anything from the new Lush range yet?
& Is anyone else loving stripes right now?! It's a bit of an obsession for me..
