Things We Lost in the Fire

By Gem - 12:33:00

I've been wearing a variation of this outfit to work for about two months now. I've ditched the super girly and floral dresses and I'm loving a more casual look, it makes getting dressed up on weekends feel a bit more special. The skirt is a new purchase which I've been lusting after it for months, looking at it in store and online and waiting for the sales. It was originally £45 in Oasis which is a crazy price, it dropped to £30 in the ASOS sale but I managed to get it for £15 in the Oasis sale with free delivery. Patience is a virtue!

It looks dark in the photo but it's a lovely purple colour and matches my bracelet perfectly. I had forgotten all about this bracelet so it was nice to dig it out and get some use out if it. I've clearly got too much stuff if I forget what I own...

YSL lipstick, Alexander McQueen

I treated myself to a new YSL lipstick on the weekend and I have to admit I was partly lured in by the gorgeous packaging. It's a lovely peachy colour with a nice shine and it has an amazing fruity smell. I only popped into Boots to get shampoo and came out with a basket full of make up. Anyone else do this on a regular basis?

Have an awesome Wednesday!

  1. Aw the skirt looks lovely, I always find it's worth hanging on for the Oasis sale, and very rarely buy anything full price from them as they are ludicrous.

    Yes i do the same. Went into Boots myself last week to buy some nail varnishes. Spotted the 3 for 2 on skincare stuff started loading up & it wasn't until i had paid & left i realised i hadn't even given the varnishes a glance! oops!

  8. I am terrible for doing that, mainly in Superdrug though. I spend about £48 a time, and then I'm like OH crap. Loving this outfit!! xx

    1. I might send my mum in next time or shop online, I end up spending a fortune :(
