This Old Thing

My new addiction is charity shop hauls and searching the vintage stalls at my local market.
I can honestly say it gets boring wearing clothes that you see everyone else in. I love the buzz I get when I purchase a fab piece for as little as €5!
I have been watching "This Old Thing" on Channel 4 hosted by the fabulous Dawn Porter. She makes vintage shopping look absolutely effortless.

Here are a few of my own recent purchases

I adore this , £15. When I tried this on I came out of the dressing room, I felt the skirt was a bit tight but I loved it especially the puffy thigh detail. I was walking around to see if it was comfortable. I couldn't understand why there was this huge hole in the puffy part. My boyfriend came down and I showed him the hole. It is a playsuit!! I had my two legs in in one leg. The mortification!!

This dress is so cute on. The waist and neck detailing is so flattering. 

This tweed jacket cost me £5. Not really sure if its a male or female jacket but I love it!!

These two tops are both home made and were both only £5

All these were purchased at The East End Thrift Store in London!

What do you think of my purchases.

Christmas shopping OOTD

Hi Everyone! I haven't posted in a few days, one of my gorgeous dogs grew her angel wings last week. Ali was an amazing dog. She was so gentle, had an amazing temperament and won the hearts of everybody who met her. She will be sadly missed but we are forever grateful we had her for the short time we did. It is very true, dog is man's best friend. Our younger dog Myka has kept us occupied and she is full of spirit, she has been a great comfort.

I have an outfit post for you today! Faux fur is a winter essential and should be in every girl's closet! There is so many fur jackets, clothes and accessories available, it's simple to incorporate it into your own personal style. From fur jackets, collars to scarves you can have a little or a lot to wrap up in style this winter. 

I purchased this brown fur faux jacket in H&M last month. At €49.95, it was an absolute steal. Fur jackets are soft and comfy and a great for this chilly weather.

All from H&M. Prices range from €30 - €50
H&M have a wide range of fur jackets in many styles and colours, at amazing prices. From the conservative style fur jacket to fashion statement fuzzy jacket,there is on there for you. 

I met a friend Saturday. I love catching up with good friends. We had a bite to eat in BB's, their muffins are so yummy! On Sunday I started and finished the grueling task of Christmas shopping! The shops were so busy, it was lovely to see so many people around. The Christmas rush is well under way! I got all my gifts thankfully, I hope everybody likes them!! 

I love brown and cream matched together. I bought my lace skater dress in Primark in London two years ago. I love it so much. It can transformed form summer to winter with simple layering. I also bought my gold necklace in London two years ago. It's from Forever 21 and is a great statement piece. Pumps are so handy to have for the winter. They really keep an outfit girly. I wanted to keep this outfit pretty. A lot of my boots are heavy and really didn't match the look I was going for. It can be too cold for pumps but I was literally popping into the shopping center next door.

Do you like faux fur?

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

Christmas Dresses not for you?

St. Stephen's night last year, I opted to wear a trouser/top combo as apposed to the traditional Christmas dress. The weather is getting so cold, I'm very tempted to do the same this year!

Last year I was very traditional in my black and gold. For me, these colours really are a must at Christmas time! I love my gold jacket so much. It will defiantly get a few trips out this year! 

Florals and leather are two trends that have had a major impact on the winter fashion scene. From leather tops, skirts to trousers you really can't go wrong with this trend. 

Trousers - Missguided // Top, Clutch, Chain - All River Island

Sticking to my black and gold, if wearing a dress is not your thing for many festive nights ahead, remain looking gorgeous and sexy in leather trousers and  a figure hugging mesh leotard. I am totally head over heels in love with River Islands fab top and its the perfect way to make a statement this Christmas. Although the sleeves are long, you are still baring skin through the mesh material. The gold baroque style, is perfect for the party season. Styled with a metal trio foil clutch, barely there heels and a gold choker, this outfit is perfect to celebrate in style.

Two Piece , Clutch, Ring - All River Island // Shoes - New Look

Florals are far from being traditional Christmas style, but rules are made to be broken! Two piece suits are the perfect way to ooze confidence and prove you have style. I am totally in love with two pieces. They are a brave choice. The black material sets of the winter white floral design on these pieces creating a feminine feel. Styled with burgundy t-bar pumps adds block colouring and a touch of class. A splash of lime adds fun to the outfit getting you in the party mood. A statement ring adds a touch of quirkiness.

I cannot wait to get paid this Friday, I really have to get my Christmas wardrobe in gear! I have purchased one dress which I will share in a couple of weeks with you. I am going to my first Christmas night out this year! 

Would you opt for a two piece this Christmas?
