A* for A|wear purchases!

These amaaazing boots are the latest thing to make my feet VERY happy...

 YES they are over-knee, YES they are studded and YES they are leather- and they were a bargain! £117 reduced to £25.50 = WIN!

My new bootsboots (sounds cuter) are channeling the biker vibe that I declare will sweep the nation this year- mark my words!

A|wear (that line is just annoying, but I wanted to get it right) are based in Ireland but these bad boys (and 5 other clothing items) were delivered within 4 working days, providing me with momentary joy in the midst of the horrific essay-writing period I've just endured!

Some of my other fave picks from the site include the taupe waterfall jacket (£50), delicious brown boots (£94) this fit hairband (£12), and shown right here....

To me A|wear seems good for girly girls who like pretty dresses, plain knits and simple tailoring, but it's also pretty fab for office-wear and, did I mention, boots?

Festive Fashions and Snowy Sales!

Here are just a few of the TREATS I have acquired over the Xmas period...

This is one of the two AllSaints cardigans that have been keeping me snug this winter...

Themis Cardi, £55 in sale
I also got this gorgeous Nilah top, in black/oxblood love how they've called the dark red oxblood. Has anyone from AllSaints ever seen Ox blood?) and this cute little frock...

Embellishment central- down to £55 from £110

Gainsborough dress, £45

Seeing as my brother was entirely unprepared for Xmas and I had to buy my own present from Toppers and have me pay me back for it, I got this adorable headband earwarmer WITH A DOG ON IT!!! Or it might be a bear actually judging by the name...

Brown Bear... £14
My family also got me slippers, slipper boots, socks and the mother of all blankets... the legendary blanket with sleeves... a SLANKET!!
Can you tell it's been a bladdy cold winter?

I've also been trawling the charity shops up north and raiding my aunty's wardrobe, and have acquired a chunky knit cream granny cardy, a festive scarf, 3 big knitted jumpers, a slinky camel blouse, gold engraved earrings and a mini leather satchel bag. Ooh and I also purchased some vintage-esque clock earrings and a feather headband :)

My housemate also came up trumps in secret santa with a beaded bow headband, cute bow brooch and one of those weird furry snake-animal things that you can play tricks with! Ha!

Oh the endless hours of fun...
