New Shoes Are Always a Good Idea

I mean I wear heels often but I have a special soft spot for flats. Specifically flats with a pointy nose. I mean I know I ain't got legs for days so this style helps to make them look a little longer without sacrificing any comfort.

So when I see a great pair I dont think twice to purchase. This is how we have not one but two new pairs of beauties to talk about. First up is the very affordable option from Oasis. Me and Laura were doing a random wondering through the mall when we spotted them and decisions were made fast. Must.Buy.Now. So we did. They are rose gold so that alone made them a must have. I am still considering getting the same style in black as they are just a perfect every day flat option. I have a bit winder feet than normal so it did take me a week to wear them in but thats kind of a given for me. Now they are great.

Second pair is my favorite kind of neutral - leopard print Gemma flats from J.Crew.  They are canvas and were comfortable from the first wear and every time I wear them it just makes me smile. If I ever had one type of flats shoes I would go with pointy nose leopard ballerinas. May I just mention these are 25% off on J.Crew website right now and I am extremely tempted to get them in the shade Desert Pink (the most gorgeous pastel of course). This cut by J.Crew might just be my favorite pointy nose ever and I want them all. In every shade they have.

That is all the news I have for now. Whats your fav style for flat shoes?

Keep It Real

Now if we keep it real here sometimes I just don't have time to organize a fab Instagramworthy outfit photo shoot.

I can't get a friend to take my photos in a pretty location in perfect afternoon gold light because of a very uninteresting reason- I'm at work. So sometimes you ask your coworker to take a picture in your office and hope that no client walks into the reception while you pose away.

Thats how it happened. A photo taken this morning in my office but there are reasons why:

There is only ONE of these pastel Sleevless Tailored Jackets left on Topshop sale and I think you should drop everything you are doing and order it NOW. Its such great quality for the sale price and a blush pink jacket will forever make your days better believe me! I am in love with it and can picture wearing it over a all white outfit next.

Another item that arrived in latest ASOS order is also well worth a look into although maybe if you live in a climate with actual winter this wount interest you too much. The Cami with scallop neckline is a perfect way to make a boring work outfit more interesting. Obviously you need a blazer or cardigan over it but the neckline is high enough but cute at the same time.

Everything else on this photo is old and seen. Sparkly brogues are Topshop and black jeans Current Elliot, my beloved JBag from MaxMara of course.

That is all. I have to get back to work. But I would have hated to see that pink jacket out of stock before I had a chance to tell you guys. x

Get in My Closet ASOS Sale Dresses

Get in My Closet ASOS Sale Dresses

I assume you all know there is a great sale going on at ASOS right now and if you go on the site you will want to buy all the things. If you didn't I'm sorry I told you cause now you kind of have to check it out right?

Anyway I have made one order already and I am contemplating a second one which is just really not necessary but whatever. Let talk dresses cause thats the only thing I wear anyway.

1. Long Sleeve Check Shirt Dress- I am kicking myself I didn't see this when I made my previous order. It would be perfect to give off that autumnal vibe without melting in Dubai sun. Love the colors and the length cause I could belt it and it would still not be too short. This is one of the reasons I am considering an second order.

2. Fit and Flare Dress with Metallic Dogtooth print- I know this one could go either way cause metallic fabrics can look cheap sometimes. However on the ASOS video view I still like it. Such a cute Christmas party dress ( yes I said it..I said Christmas party..its coming!).

3. Sequin Midi Skater Dress- this disco dress is already on its way to me. I couldnt resist it even knowing I probably dont have anywhere to wear it. But I thought for the sale price its OK even if I just put it on at home and feel happy. In reality I'm sure I will find a place to wear it to I dont mind being overdressed. The crazy all over sequin fabric in combination with midi lenght drew me in and when the second picture showed an open back (which is by far my favorite way to show skin- I'm not a boob or leg girl. I'm a check-out-my-low-cut-back type of girl) the order was made in a matter of minutes.

4. 50's Belted Prom Dress-lets me honest this is just a very me dress isnt it. I love fabric belts and the cut is like all my other dresses. It just seems to be great fabric and quality and the price on sale is fabulous. I really want to get it but.. since its sleeveless and low V cut front and back I cant really wear it to work and I dont need any more going out dresses until I start going out more. But maybe you should order it and I can live vicariously through you?

5. Ruffle Skater Dress- if a second order shall "accidentally" happen I will be adding this dress to it. It is a perfect dog walking dress. Yes that is a separate theme in my wardrobe. I just think it looks cute and comfy for home lounging and weekend beach trips.

6. -7. I already own both of these dresses and they are much loved and worn. Hence when I saw them on sale I thought I would notify you in case you want to add either to your collection. You can see me wearing the Black Debutante Midi Dress in this post. Second is the yellow Warehouse Pleat Detail Dress I have worn so much this summer. I did a post about it here. I think you should just buy both of them to be honest!!

So I shall get back to work now and stop shopping. But what do you think? Any of them worth a purchase?

M.A.C. Red and Pure Zen

You know that feeling when you look at your makeup stash and think "Wow I have too many lipsticks. I certainly dont need any new ones."

Yeah. Me neither!
There is always a lipstick or ten on my wishlist and recently two of them made it to me. Both from good old Mac because nothing beats having that time by the lipstick stand picking up shade after shade only to find out you already own every one you pick up. Until one time you pick up something you dont have and its the same joy all over again. Right? I hope this is not just me.

Anyway- M.A.C Red is Satin finish classic beauty. Nothing groundbreaking if you have as many red lipsticks as me yet totally irresistible if you have as big obsession with red lipsticks as me. It has strong blue undertones and a hint of pink or cherry shade in it. Its bright and beautiful. The satin finish is a good option on days my lips are a little dry but I still want a red lip look. I shall try have a picture of me wearing it up soon.

Pure Zen is a total revelation for me! Why did I live under a rock for so long I do not know but thankfully I have Laura, my makeup fairy-godmother. When she heard I don't have this shade we marched to the closest MAC counter and she gifted me one. I thought its same-same as my Peach Blossom but I was wrong. This is more pigmented, peachier in color and like totally different!! Mac describes it as a "warm frosted nude" and it come in the creamsheen finish. A perfect every day nude that I have been wearing nonstop for a week.

Here is Pure Zen with a tiny bit of Elizabeth Arden clear lipbalm on top as I'm struggling with dryness at the moment. 

Have you bought lipsticks lately? Anything I should look into?
