Shop my closet: part two.

July 31, 2011

Some shameless self promotion ahead.....sort of.

Hey everyone so with my lack of money and also the recent news that I am possibly moving again I decided its time to sell some of the clothes I no longer wear (again)! Theres almost 100 things up for grabs (98 to be exact) and lots of the items are still new with tags too. Most of the sizes are UK 14/16/18 - USA 10/12/14 but there are a few smaller sized things and a couple of size 20 items near the end. Instead of creating a page on my blog, I made a little "goodsie" store and should any of you wish to buy something you can do it directly through the site and pay via paypal!

Blouse: New Look *** Shorts: Topshop *** Accessories: Primark *** Shoes: Primark

I really wanted to wear my New Look espadrille wedges with this outfit (I love them so much that its becoming an unhealthy addiction, I want to wear them with everything!) but my feet were sort of hurting so I decided on these crochet pumps from Primark instead. The shorts were featured on one of my last wishlist-type posts and when I spotted them in store I decided to try them on and instantly loved them. Its a shame that I had ironed them about 5 minutes before taking these photographs and they were covered in creases so quickly!

I am having a lot of problems with the house I moved into..again! If you follow me on Twitter you will be bored of hearing about it but we had a health and safety inspector out to do an inspection on Friday and hopefully we can get out of the lease. The house is very old and needs a lot work, I think it would cost our landlord €15,000+ to repair everything and have the house meet the "minimum standards" for rental accommodation. I just hope I can take my flooring with me, I paid for it but the landlord had it installed in my bedroom so i'm not sure what the law is on that!

PS. I apologize for being so late with announcing this but the winners of my last giveaway are Karen (winner #1) and Jazmine (winner #2) Please drop me an email with your full name and postal address before Wednesday 3 August to claim your prizes, girls! :)

Blouse: Primark *** Skirt: Dunnes *** Bracelet: Forever 21 *** Wedges: Topshop

Hi lovelies! I apologize for so many pictures, I got a little carried away and took a lot today, then decided that I wanted to share all of them! Ever since I purchased these Topshop wedges from my recent "haul" post, I have been trying to decide what to wear them with. Unfortunately, they really don't fit in with my style and as much as I wanted them to work with todays outfit, i'm not quite sure they do! I still wore them, mostly because they cost me €106 (which is a lot of money to me, especially for one pair of shoes!) and I need to justify buying them somehow! I do adore them and seeing them sitting on my shoe-shelf makes me happy, however I have a feeling that they will spend more time on that shelf than actually being worn. Sad times.

I have to mention that I stayed at possibly the cutest hotel in the city this past weekend, credit to my boyfriend for finding it! Its called The Hampton Hotel (I swear I have no affiliation!) The decor isn't to everyones taste but I absolutely loved it. Not to mention the room had a massive bed which was about three times the size of my bed at home, a widescreen television, sofa, etc. The bathroom, which I unfortunately got no pictures of, was definitely my favorite.. deep window, two sinks, large mirror, perfect lighting.. great for a gal like me who enjoys taking time applying makeup! If only I could live there forever.

Etsy pretties

July 21, 2011

I have such a love/hate relationship with etsy. The good? It contains thousands of adorable things! The bad? I'll never get to own most of them! That said, my etsy favorites page is ever growing and I currently have about 3,000 items saved in there. When I feel like shopping, I browse etsy and add everything that catches my eye to my favorites, I suppose you could say I use it as a "window shopping" outlet but on the internet! Here are a few (okay, a lot..I get carried away!) of my favorite things from this week..




this charming vintage suitcase


this vintage mint chair


this floral pouch


this handmade floral and pearl bracelet


this set of carousel tins


this set of wall decal butterflies


this adorable little vintage clock ring


this dreamy maxi dress


this set of string lights


this pair of adorable vintage 1950s roller skates


this (absolutely stunning!) ruffled duvet cover


Hope you all enjoyed this post, feel free to post your etsy favorites in the comments!

everything: New Look

Mr. rain decided to stay elsewhere today (hallelujah!) so I made a decision to be brave and go bare legged. I sort of cheated somewhat (thick knit shorts under my dress...sssssssh!) but I am not as cold as I thought it would be. Its currently 14 degrees celsius, which is about 57F, not ideal weather for mid July but it could always be worse! My whole outfit today is from New Look. I feel slightly odd wearing one single brand from head-to-toe but everything just fits together. I wore this dress on vacation with a pretty kimono and flat sandals which also worked nicely, I think I may have to repeat it in the near future. I was planning on getting the dress in a different color (cream) to wear to a wedding party I am invited to in the near future, but unfortunately it was sold out of sizes 16 and 18 when I found it in store! The wedges are probably my favorite shoe purchase of this year, they match a lot of my summer outfits and are a breeze to walk in. I am having a little feather obsession at the minute although its a shame they are so delicate as they get ruined so easy!

Topshop haul

July 17, 2011

I realize my birthday was over a month ago however I was holding out to make a haul video with these but I couldn't resist any longer! I always treat myself to a present on my birthday each year. Last year my treat was a pair of Dior sunglasses, which have only been worn twice but I think this years gift will be used a lot more! I was hoping to get myself a new laptop but with the holiday and my being awful at saving, I couldn't quite afford that so instead I ventured into Topshop to treat myself to something I had my eye on for a while....

The most fabulous pair of wedges I have seen in a long time! They were a little more than I had hoped to spend (€106) but I lusted after them every single time I went into Topshop and I just knew I had to own them. I am still unsure how to incorporate them into my outfits, they're not very "me" - black, chunky and more edgy than my usual shoes, but I think thats somewhat appealing. I like mixing things up, I just hope I won't look ridiculous in them! Although the heel is quite high, they are incredibly easy to walk in.


While I was there I also picked up some undergarments. Topshop lingerie is usually hit and miss for me. While their panties are very comfortable, a lot of the patterns and colors aren't very appealing to me... however I did find two pairs that I fell in love with.
