This bustier is painfully cheap at £25. I would pair this with some baggy jogger-style trousers and 6 inch heeled sandals for a night out. Red lip to give it some pop and you're good to go.
More of a stretch for these at £150 but these are absolutely gorgeous. They could look a bit nightwalkerish if you wore it with the wrong outfit so I would dress it down with an oversized slouchy knit, some skinny jeans and a tattered leather handbag.
£170 but black leather is timeless, you can carry it throughout all the seasons and let's face it - backpacks are convenient 99% of the time. And if you have to have a backpack it may as well be Wang.
Not as impressed with the mens side of the game, everything looks like average gym-wear but overpriced. I could be wrong. Thoughts?

On the first of November it was so warm I ended up stripping this outfit down to just the dress and some open-heel flats. No tights, no coat, added sunglasses. The weather is literally insane at the moment, I don't know what is going on.
The dress is by Vera Moda but picked up in the ASOS sale. I originally bought it because the cut is okay to wear to work with some tights and a blazer, but I like it enough that I would wear it out of work as well and actually got stopped twice when I popped out by girls asking where it was from. It's a really, really lightweight material making it the perfect summer-winte carry through. Perfect for layering with a big jumper.
It comes in two different shades. I'm an 8/10 and picked up an XS. It fits fine, and has a hidden zip down the side to make life easier. I teamed it with some KG boots which were also from ASOS in the sale. The heel is just enough to give you a little boost but you can walk around in them all day and not get sore feet because they aren't too high. The perfect AW14 staple.

Popped into Boots to pick up my current go-to mascara, L'Oreals Miss Manga. They had a 3 for 2 offer across L'Oreal so obviously I picked up a lipstick. Because I don't have enough..
It's a really bright, pinky coraly tinged red. Pure Red, as part of the Julianne range for Color Riche. It's a matte texture but doesn't dry out as much as MACs.

*Apologies for the lack of blogging, I recently moved house into London and have had no wifi!) *
Topshop Oxford Circus hosts various different concession brands that aren't available in other stores. My friend Jess dragged me out in the search of a bag her friend had, from a concession line called Etui.
Etui is a line of absolutely beautiful bags & purses, handmade from various gorgeous patterned leathers. They have a massive selection of handbags, shoulder bags, and clutches and purses in so many different styles, all completely unique and one-of-a-kind because of the nature of the leather. I couldn't help myself.
When we were looking for this bag a guy started asking us loads of questions about what the bag looked like. We thought he was being a bit over-detailed, but it turns out he was the owner of the brand and was just trying to work it out because he himself knew every bag that they made down to the last detail. He was so helpful and even ran down to the workshop to find one of a similar description because as I said, every piece is different and unique. He even gave us a cheeky discount.
They are more expensive than your typical bag. Twice the price of a River Island purse. But the quality is undeniable. It smells of fresh, expensive leather. This purse appealed because it was shorter for when I use a smaller clutch bag, but had all the compartments I would need to keep everything in.
A couple of transparent card holders for ID's, 8 other card slots for store cards, a little pocket for change, a couple of other zip pockets and card slots here and there, and then a big back pocket for dolla dolla bills y'all. Unless you carry around your whole life in your purse, this will fit everything you need in it.
This isn't a sponsored post, I was just really impressed by the range available, the customer service of the brand owner (I'm sorry, I can't remember his name!!) and of the general quality of the products. Plus they're gorgeous. Big thumbs up from myself, and Jess!

I so, so, SO almost love this outfit to pieces. The let down factor? The way the leotard sits makes it look like she has a saggy fanny. Pardon the french.
