Last Post of 2011!

Its new years eve eve! Hope you had a lovely Christmas! This will be my last post of 2011, and I'm looking forward to the year ahead, I've got plans to regularly update my blog and plenty more looks in mind as well as a trip to Tokyo (hopefully)(maybe some more hehe) coming up next year. I'm also going to York on tuesday, and paying a visit to my favourite Mulberry outlet, I'm after (prehaphs) a bag but most definitely an iPad case for my shiny new toy, so make sure you look out for that...

Today im wearing a silver knitted dress from H&M, this dress is an asteal at £7.99, my size sold out in the newcastle store but luckily i somehow managed to order the last one over the phone!(woo!) BEWARE, h&m delivery is SLOW, it took nearly 2 weeks to arrive.

Never the less its a really easy dress to throw on for work or night, again I've gone metallic, something I never have done last year but this year I'm loving it(well the pieces from h&m at least).

It looks more of a grey on the photos as they dont really capture the metallic, my necklace is very old from Topshop ,dee my other blog post to see where my shoes and cardi are from, thick tights are a must with this dress also!

Oh and here is my iPad ^.^ Hopefully i can find a lovely Mulberry case for it to sit in soon!

Leave a comment and don't forget to leave all your lovely blogs and I'll pay them a visit!

Winter warmer

Firstly, I must apologize for how long it has been since my last blog post! Also for how short it was, from now on I promise to keep them coming! I've got plenty new looks to show for winter, I've just been caught up in the busy festive period with work etc!

This fairisle print skirt from River Island was sure to get me in the christmas mood, it was the first time I've bought a longer skirt (all mine are great lengths above the knee) but its probably the most flattering skirt I've ever had! Now i'm addicted, I NEED more tight fitting midi skirts in my life!

However, I couldn't resist this perfect jumper, its angora mix ,so is super soft and really easy for just throwing over my skirt, dresses, anything! It has a slight metallic sheen too it (something I usually stray away from but its definitley more chic than chatty) so it was a steal from H&M!

The shoes! From my favourite, ASOS, the perspex looks like its frosting over, coming up from the ground ( I think atleast ha ha). I've wanted some persex heels for a while so snatched these boots up in the sale when the chance came, glittery socks to continue my little metallic feel (Primark, bargain)

The teal clutch is also from ASOS, (matching nails did you notice ;)) I might buy myself a porfolio clutch in the sales because I like the look of them ^.^, Im also after a new cardigan and/or jacket. I've discovered I'm quite short on them lately, this kimono style one has a nice silhouette, and is just borrowed from my mams wardrobe.

For now, I cannot wait for christmas! My next post will be after, and hopefully some good sale purchase posts after!

Have a lovely christmas!
