Guys sorry I haven’t posted for a while. Now I have something exciting to share with you. Considering recent events in Crimea, I try to cheer myself up a bit and get out of my comfort zone.

I don’t have enough words to express my obsession with this cute little bag from Oasis. I recently did a post on this bag and two other, but it’s just amazing. And goes with so many outfits. It’s out of stock at House of Fraser (where I originally got it), but you can buy it at Asos or your local Oasis.
The boots are from River Island (check out my previous posts). Wore them the first time today and they are not only stylish but extremely comfy, too.

And yep, I fed swans today. This is a very relaxing thing to do btw. These majestic and beautiful creatures are simply mesmerising.

Like most girls I love bags. I get really excited when I purchase a new bag and since I recently got three new bags, I decided to do this post.

Okay, so I am in love with structured bags right now. They make any outfit (even when I look like a homeless drug addict lol) put together and more sophisticated. Also I kind of prefer smaller bags right now, so I bought these.

We are all raving about black and white for quite a while. This combo looks super chic but also it’s very easy to style. I got this pretty clutch from River Island on sale and I was amazed with it’s quality. I mean I didn’t expect much from a $26 bag, but it turned out very well made and the golden hardware looks very edgy.

Next, my second clutch bag. This one is from Warehouse. It’s a very beautiful envelope clutch with colorblocking going on. It has cream, burgundy and black, plus the hardware is gold. I absolutely love it. For around $30 I got a fabulous clutch, that is great quality and can fit quite a lot of stuff.

It’s not on sale on Asos, but you can get it here:

And finally, my small crossbody bag from Oasis. I wanted a new black bag for a while, I just couldn’t find the perfect one for me. Some of them look too much like Chanel and I hate fake bags. But when I saw this one I loved it. It has some colorblocking with black, camel and beige, but all of this colors are neutral and easy to style, so this little crossbody looks cute with so many outfits. I wear it alot with sweaters, jeans, my leather jacket and some flat heel boots. But the best thing about this bag is that it can fit so much stuff!!! Honestly, because it’s structured I can shove in my iphone, money, driving license, my keys, little hand cream (because my hands are very dry and whenever I wash them I need to apply some moisturiser), tissues. I can even fit my huge Paul’s Boutique wallet, but I hate it when my bag is so much full.

Today I have realized I haven’t done a fashion post for so long. This is very upsetting for me, so I’ve decided to share with you guys some of my outfit ideas and recent purchases.

I would like to start with this sweatshirt that I absolutely LOVE. It’s one of my favourite Autumn purchases and I adore it. It’s one of those clothing items that you can wear as pj top, but also go out in it. You can easily dress it down or dress it up. I love wearing it by itself, but sometimes I wear a denim shirt underneath. It also looks fab with all kind of chunky necklaces. And OMG I am freaking obsessed with the print!!!!!!!!!!!! The quality is nice and for only $32 this Pull&Bear sweatshirt can be worn absolutely everywhere. And for coffee addicts like myself, you just have to have it

I believe, this one is sold out, but you can definitely find similar ones from the high-street

This is my recent party outfit. It’s very easy to recreate and quite comfy. All you need is a pair of black heels (my booties are KG by Kurt Geiger, got them from Asos ages ago), black tights, black roll neck jumper (mine is from Zara) and finally a statement skirt. I don’t know where this one is from because it was a birthday present. It is quite structured and has elastic waist. I really love black and white in it.

I have found a couple of statement skirts, for you guys:

Asos Pencil Jacquard Skirt

Mango Scarf Print Skirt

Topshop Embellished Flower Skirt

Lulus Striped Black & White Skirt

Another jumper I am loving at the moment is this beautiful black & white one from River Island. The first time I saw it, I knew I had to have it. It is so pretty in person, and I absolutely love the chunky necklace it comes with. Jumpers like this are so easy to wear – they look great with jeans, jeggings and faux leather skirts. Unfortunately, this one is out of stock on RI website. Here are similar jumpers:

River Island Black & White Check Jumper

River Island Geometric Print Necklace Jumper

Mango Geometric Pattern Sweater

And finally, because it’s winter and it’s freezing outside, I popped into Stradivarius and got this two beautiful scarfs. I normaly hate everythng thst says 100% polyester, but theses are super soft and warm.I washed them and they still look the same. So if you need a good scarf, definitely check out Stradvarius. They also have nice jeans and basic t-shirts there.

New Bag & Wallet From Paul's Boutique

 

$80 PB Maisy Bag40$ PB wallet

I’ve been obsessed with Paul’s Boutique bags for more than 4 years. If you don’t know, it’s a famous UK highstreet brand that does amazing faux leather bags. You get a great quality bag for around $100. I own a couple of their bags, but Maisy is my favourite so far.
I recently got another Maisy. It is beautiful dark green color and has leopard print all over it. I love the combo of gold, green and leopard and it is perfect for Fall and Winter. I also got a matching wallet, because my old one was ruined. I usually get my PB bags from Asos, but the official Paul’s Boutique website also has international delivery now.
Speaking about these two beauties I found them at House of Fraser and they were on sale. The bag was around $65 and the wallet – $40. They also have different colors of these bags.
Here are the links to PB:

I have recently purchased some shoes from River Island. They were on sale for about $25-35. They still have some gorgeous heels and flats on their website, so definitely go check them out.

Ok, so going back to my order, I have been a fan of RI clothing for more than a year, I love how their jeans fit me and their dresses don’t need to be alterated – they are perfect for petite girls like me. But I have never been a particular fan of their shoes. I just didn’t like the quality and also their shoes used to run pretty large.

However, when I saw these beauties on the website for such an affordable prise, I thought I’d give it a try. And I am happy I did!

I absolutely love these! I ordered them in UK size 3 (US 6, European 36) and they are sooooo little – they run quite small and narrow, which works great for my tiny feet. I loved the quality too. These shoes look very expensive and super cute with many different outfits. The heel is not too high and is rather comfortable. Overall, great shoes and great prise!

Also guys check out how long my hair is. Omg it grows so fast I need to get it cut a bit.
