You know that feeling, you see oodles of fab items in magazines and in store, yet you have zero £$. And so, you scrimp, save and possibly borrow, even accept that penny with the piece of fluffy from down the back of the sofa. And, then *sigh* the possibility of gorgeous goodies has *poofed* as though they never existed.
I'm being prepared, not to be disappointed from magazine features, that when you actually get to the store, the item either has sold out, & they ran the feature to late, or it just doesn't look as good as you had hoped.
I had my eye on a bag from Miss Selfridge (Horse crossbody bag Price: £25.00), and though I liked it at the shop after seeing it online - just didn't think it was practical for every day use.
So, venturing into New Look I spotted a red bag, and on getting home discovered a booklet of vouchers for September. I have my eye on these boots, those vouchers are their to tempt me, and it will probably work :)
£19.99 They aren't quiet as vivid as pictured here, but a lovely change from just black. It saddens me a little when the Autumn colours arrive in store. Not everyone likes to be head to toe in darker tones, if anything we need more colour through the darker months. The downside of fashion boots are, like this pair, and a previous pair I had from New Look - the sole wore down to fast, after a few months which I think it ridiculous I know they are just seasonal updates, but you expect a little better and not have to invest in re-heeling or new sole.
More cute bags from New Look
Pocket Stitch Satchel
Loved the bow bag below which I didn't notice until I bought another bag. Available in cream and nude pink tone, but I love the black with the white pipping detail.
Next is the bag I ended up buying, preferring a bag that is crossbody, and the mini pockets are always handy, especially for the amount of bits and pieces I seem to collect from goodness knows where - matched with the possibility of collecting new treasures on travels :)
I thought I can always add my own embellishments maybe. The bag is also available in tan, white and dark brown to.
Buckle Pouch Crossbody £10.00
I saw some amazing patient black heel shoe/boots, with gold studs/laces. I can't find them online sadly.
Accessorize/Monson know how to tempt, imagine teal/ dark turquoise ballet flat, with a corsage of the same colour and nestled in the centre of the flower a beautiful jewel. Another site that doesn't feature all their tootsie shoes sadly. I would have adored those shoes, but another pair of flats? their are enough pairs breading here already lol.
This next ring falls under the category of looked gorg in the email, sadly not as divine in the shop.
Spellbound Wizard Statement Ring £14.00
Still a pretty ring, not the top of my list any more.
I haven't ventured into Newcastle for a while, and so need my Accessories fix, I was naughty and treated myself to some earrings after saving some pennies on the bag purchase.
I thought these were so cute - the enamel heart caught my eye first, and just checking out the website I see their is a matching brooch which I missed in store. I love clouds, trying to figure out why I like them so much, a sense of calm maybe, graceful movement.
Did you look for images formed within clouds to? I know as kids we did, and I still do to be honest.
