FASHION | A Few New Buys

As if I should be shopping right now but I did anyway. But I guess life is too short and all that right? ;) 

First up, what I bought on holiday. Not much, but they're real good.

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Favorite Review
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Favorite Review

Chloé Eau de Parfum, which was a's like tradition to buy it every time I go away. There's not many fragrances I like but I adore the rose scent and how it lasts for ages too. And then I had some left over money so I got Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Favorite because I can't save my Euros for some reason, I have to spend every last cent. Anyone else like that? Anyway it's a gorgeous coral shade that's not too dissimilar to Gay Geranium by No7  but I much prefer this formula - matte without being at all drying, plus it stays on the lips forever. It's not looking too good on me at the moment because stupid me sunburnt my lips but when they're mended I think it'll look pretty on. I know Chanel lipsticks are pricey but I rarely buy make up so for me they're worth the splurge because as well as being top quality the packaging is beautiful. Plus the *click* when you open them is the most satisfying sound. (Check out my review of La Fascinante here!)

White Cheesecloth Embroidered Boho Blouse

The picture isn't very good but the detail on this top is beautiful, I picked it up in this cute little store that I think was called Natura. It's a really light, cheesecloth material and has been my absolute go-to in this gorgeous weather we've been having. When things cool down a bit I can't wait to wear it with a leather jacket and some boots.

Then when I got back I had a serious case of post-holiday blues so did the only thing I know when I'm down in the dumps...turn to my good friend ASOS

ASOS Fine Wire 30mm Hoop Earrings

Excuse the blurriness! I'd been craving some gold hoops for a while and really wish I'd had a pair when I was away so I got these ASOS Fine Wire 30mm Hoop Earrings although I'm still not sure they suit me. I have a bit of a London accent so I feel like when I wear them I just look like a chav haha. Not quite the chic Jean Shrimpton look or Daria Werbowy cool I had in mind!

ASOS Boudoir Appliqué Lace Overlay Soft Triangle Mesh Bra

I have this ASOS Boudoir Appliqué Lace Overlay Soft Triangle Mesh Bra in black already and love it so when the blue went down to just £6 I had to snap it up too because it's just so pretty. I had to order a Medium because the S was too tight for my massive ribs (#CFProblems lol) so I was worried the cups would be huge but it actually fits fine.

Then there were a few Topshop purchases which I'm super pleased with.

Topshop Pineapple Triangle Cup Mini Bra and Mini Knickers review

Look at me buying all these bras like I actually have anything to put in them :') and as my mum pointed out I wear them for like 5 minutes and take them off (which makes me sound like a shlag but it's actually because they often really restrict my breathing and bother my portacath!) However this Topshop Triangle Cup Mini Bra and Mini Knickers were too adorable and silly not to buy and with a quick Google search I got 10% off. The pineapple on the bottoms actually goes on the back, I'd say the bottoms are true to size but the top is a little smaller than average I think! I've never bought a Topshop triangle bra before despite always eyeing them up and I'm impressed, the fit is so good and I'm definitely going to get some more.

Topshop Koala Espadrille Shoes in black review

These Topshop Koala Espadrille Shoes were bought quite a while ago now but I haven't popped them on the blog yet. I wanted these so bad, they kept selling out so my orders were getting cancelled but on the third attempt I finally got them and I was literally like this little lad at my computer screen haha. They're so comfy, they come in so many different colours too (the leopard ones are dreamy!) 

So that's it for my kind of mini haul! Definitely have to try and avoid buying anything new for myself in August. Let me know what you like best! Hopefully I can blog again this week, Blogger has been a right pain for some reason and it's taken me ages to write this -_-
