Sooo, first things first: HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!!
Hope you all started 2014 as great as I have... with a great party! But, let's not revel in nostalgia, let's stick to the present! I'm back in England, even if not for very long anymore (well, until Valentine's) and that means enjoying the last month!
Last week I went to Norwich to meet my lovely second-cousin one last time in England. She's starting a blog aswell and as soon as she has done so, I'll post the link here for you to have a look at!
In my experience, TOPSHOP is always the first shop to go in Norwich, don't really know why. To my great profit the January Sales were still on and even though there were sooooo many things you couldn't ever look at all of them, we still picked out a couple of great things.
I got something to confess, yes I did buy two pairs of shoes. And yes, they are both black. And shiny. And pretty. And yes yes yes, I do love both of them. And well... No, they weren't in sale.
As you can see on the photos, I bought one pair of them in TOPSHOP and the dolly shoes, how most people call them, come from OFFICE. I haven't worn both of them yet, only the dolly ones, and if you're planning on getting them, I only have one piece of advice for you:
DON'T WEAR THEM WITH THIN TIGHTS THE FIRST COUPLE TIMES!
They don't hurt as bad as most other patent leather shoes do, but they weren't comfortable either, if that makes sense. I actually might wear the TOPSHOP ones tomorrow to see how they are. I think they would go perfectly with a dress or high waisted skinny jeans!
On the picture beneath you can see everything I got in TOPSHOP. The already-mentioned shoes, a dark-brown bag, a two-coloured shirt and (I couldn't resist) a flower-hairband.
I found the shirt in the sale section and I'm quite pleased with myself I did, because we didn't look at the sales that close! And it was the last one!! I wasn't sure about the bag at first, I must admit, but now I don't see what the heck I was thinking! I love it!!! It's very thin, so I can't use it for my college books, but I find it perfect for just normal everyday-occasions.
I'm madly in love with the hairband already. It's my definition of perfection. Well that and Alexa Chung. I find flowercrowns look really cool (very tumblr, if you ask me), but i imagine they aren't the most comfortable accessory to wear. And well. It's black! I wouldn't have bought it if it was flower-colour (and by that i mean red or pink or whatever), but black is just perfect.
Of course, we also went to H&M, where I, disappointingly, only bought accessories. But, no room for disappointment, because they're awesome as hell!
I used to love bows 3 years ago a looot, but then I got really fed up with them and now I like them again (yaay). And well, you can never have enough rings! Or phone cases. haha
ZARA was the lucky store for me this time. Everything I bought there was on sale and everything is perfect. I got an amazing silver glitter skirt (try and picture it with a plain black top and heels!!!), which I can't wait to wear as soon as possible! I also picked up a bat-phone case, just because. Who doesn't love bats??? Or batman??? And who wouldn't love to set the batman theme as ringtone and (nananananananananananananananana) .... BATPHONE. I'm crazy about it already! Also, I once stroke a bat and it was so adorable and fluffy that I would have one as a pet if I could.
The bag I found in ZARA is actually quite similar to another one I have (yes, a ZARA one), buuut different! And it was on sale, so don't judge! I don't really know why I bought the rings, because they are a size M and well... I'm not. But rings fall off my fingers all the time anyway!
And last but not least, my 3rd phone case of the day!! I got the Kate Spade case in the Apple Store, but I'm sure they're all also available online somewhere, just dig deep!
But now, enough of me talking talking talking!!!
Ladies and Gentlemen, my haul!
